Delta-8 THC (D8) and Cannabidiol (CBD) are two cannabinoids that are found in the cannabis plant. There is also research dating back to 1975 regarding cannabinoids potential for treating cancer and other studies exist showing various potential health benefits. Please note that the below information is for informational purposes and does not constitute legal advice. More information can be found in our disclaimer.
The 2018 Farm Bill expressly carved out “tetrahydrocannabinols in hemp” (See Section 12619(b) of the 2018 Farm Bill ). This carveout indicates any type of THC from a cannabis plant with Delta-9 THC is at or below 0.3% is legal at the federal level. The 2018 Farm Bill specifically made all derivatives, isomers, and cannabinoids in hemp legal, provided the final product has less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. For reference, delta 8 THC is an isomer of CBD, a derivative of hemp and CBD, a cannabinoid found in hemp, and is ultimately contained in our extracts with less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC.
The 2018 Farm Bill also includes an amendment to the Controlled Substances Act, explicitly removing all tetrahydrocannabinols found in hemp. This specifically overrides the definition found for Delta-8 in the Federal Analogue Act. Further, in Sept of 2021, the DEA issued guidance indicating that Delta-8 derived from hemp is legal.
All of our products use extracts that are entirely derived from hemp. You can find all of our certificates of analysis at the following address: https://smallaxehq.wpengine.com/coa
