Is it legal to buy THC Gummies online?

Yes. It is legal to purchase THC gummies online if:

1. You are over 21 years of age
2. The THC was derived from hemp
3. The THC composition of the final product is under .3% by dry weight

These stipulations were signed into law on December 20th, 2018 under the 2018 Farm Bill.

Is THC from hemp & marijuana the same? 

Whether sourced from hemp or marijuana, Delta-9 THC is the same chemical compound.

Both hemp and marijuana are cannabis plant species. Hemp is defined as a cannabis plant with under <.3% THC by dry weight and marijuana is defined as a cannabis plant with >.3% THC by dry weight.

What is Delta-9 THC?

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (D9 THC) is a cannabinoid found in both cannabis plants, hemp & marijuana. Delta-9 THC is the most abundant type of THC, which produces the 'intoxicating' or 'high' effects.

Will Delta-9 THC in hemp gummies get me high?

Yes. Delta-9 THC is the most abundant type of THC, which produces the 'intoxicating' or 'high' effects. Whether derived from hemp or marijuana, Delta-9 THC is the same natural, chemical compound.

What are the benefits of THC Gummies?

Gummies with D9 THC derived from hemp will provide a light euphoric or "high" feeling within 30-45 minutes of consumption. Studies suggest D9 THC may also help alleviate symptoms of stress, anxiety and pain.*

Current research also suggests that THC may have beneficial effects for sleep issues and may improve sleep scores (source*).

How is it legal to buy THC Gummies online?

The 2018 Farm Bill allows products to be sold that are under .3% THC by dry weight. That .3% THC allowance also extends to the composition of the finished product. 

Example 1: If a gummy weighs 5g = 5000mg and is 100% dry weight, then the product can legally contain up to 15mg of D9 THC.

Equation: 5000 x 1.00 (dry weight) x .003 (.3% Farm Bill Allowance) = 15mg D9 THC

Example 2: If a gummy weights 4g = 4000mg, and has 10% water content, then the product can legally contain up to 10.8mg of D9 THC. 

Equation: 4000 x .9 (1-.1 moisture) x .003 (.3% Farm Bill Allowance) = 10.8mg of D9 THC.

What was the 2018 Farm Bill?

On December 20th, 2018 the 2018 Farm Bill was signed into law which reclassified hemp from a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance to an ordinary agricultural commodity. CBD & THC derived from hemp (a class of the cannabis sativa plant) were effectively legalized for consumer goods. 

Marijuana was not descheduled from a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance, which is why Delta-9 THC derived from marijuana is still federally illegal.

The Farm Bill also provided certainty and stability to our nation's farmers by enhancing farm support programs, improving crop insurance, maintaining disaster programs, and promoting and supporting voluntary conservation.

What should I look for when buying THC Gummies online?

Only buy from trusted and verified brands, so you can be sure you’re purchasing a product that has been 3rd party lab tested for quality, purity & potency.

Each product must have a COA (Certificate of Analysis) conducted by a 3rd party, independent lab. The COA is a testing document that verifies the product's cannabinoid composition, and verifies the product is free of heavy metals, microbials, mycotoxins, pesticides, residual solvents and foreign materials (see example here).
