Yo, what’s good? This your boy Dan, comin’ at you with some knowledge about Delta 8 THC. If you don’t already know, Delta 8 is a compound found in both marijuana and hemp that’s kinda like Delta 9 THC, which is the shit that gets you high when you smoke weed. But Delta 8 is only about half as strong, so you won’t be trippin’ out as hard.
Now, you might be thinkin’, “But Dan, isn’t weed illegal?” And yeah, technically it is on a federal level. But here’s where things get interesting: Delta 8 is in a gray area right now. Some states have laws that specifically ban it, but others don’t. And even on a federal level, it’s not totally clear whether it’s legal or not.
See, Delta 9 is definitely illegal according to the FDA. But Delta 8? Not so much. It’s technically legal if it comes from hemp that has less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. And since the 2018 Farm Bill legalized the growth of hemp with less than 0.3% THC, that means Delta 8 is cool if it comes from hemp.
But there’s a catch: extracting Delta 8 from hemp requires some special equipment, and the process itself is kinda iffy in terms of legality. Plus, the DEA (that’s the Drug Enforcement Agency) might be cracking down on Delta 8 soon, so the whole thing could become illegal real quick.
So where does North Carolina fit into all of this? Well, right now they don’t have any laws specifically banning Delta 8, so it’s technically legal there. But that could change at any moment if the state decides to pass some new legislation.
If you’re in North Carolina and you wanna try some Delta 8, there are a few things you need to know. First of all, make sure you’re buying it from a reputable seller that has third-party lab reports to show that their product is legit. You also wanna make sure that the Delta 8 comes from hemp that has less than 0.3% THC.
But even if you’re following all the rules, there’s still a chance that Delta 8 could become illegal in North Carolina or on a federal level. So if you’re gonna mess with it, just be aware that things could change real fast.
To sum it up: Delta 8 THC is kinda legal right now, but that could change at any moment. If you’re gonna try it, make sure you’re buying it from a reputable source and following all the rules. And stay tuned for updates, ‘cause this shit is constantly evolving.
