Hemp-Derived THC Gaining Popularity
In recent years, hemp-derived THC has gained significant attention due to its potential health benefits and therapeutic properties. However, many people still have questions about its legality and safety. In this blog post, we will delve into the topic, providing a clear and concise explanation of why hemp-derived THC is both legal and safe. So, let’s dive in!
Understanding Hemp and THC
Hemp is a variety of the cannabis plant that contains minimal levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive compound responsible for the “high” associated with marijuana. Hemp-derived THC refers to THC extracted from hemp plants, which contains less than 0.3% THC concentration.
Legal Status of THC from Hemp
The legal status of hemp-derived THC is primarily governed by the 2018 Farm Bill in the United States. This legislation legalized the cultivation, production, and sale of hemp and its derivatives, including THC, as long as it meets the specified THC concentration threshold of 0.3% or less. This means that hemp-derived THC is legal in many states, provided it adheres to these guidelines.
Hemp Derived THC Safety Concerns
Hemp-derived THC is considered safe for several reasons:
1. (Usually) Non-Intoxicating: Most full spectrum hemp products, including CBD or CBG oil, contain trace amounts of Delat 9 THC. In most cases, these products are non-intoxicating, or do not produce psycho-active effects. Therefore, in many cases this means that users can experience potential therapeutic benefits without feeling “high” or impaired. However, some products containing hemp-derived THC can be psychoactive or intoxicating. For example, Woody’s Gummies are formulated to be a therapeutic product, but may produce psychoactive effects for some users and should be consumed with that in mind.
2. Quality Control: The legal hemp industry is subject to strict regulations and quality control measures. Reputable manufacturers ensure that their products undergo rigorous testing to verify THC content, purity, and absence of harmful contaminants. This ensures that consumers receive safe and reliable products. All of Woody’s products are third-party lab tested for purity and potency.
3. Health Benefits: Research suggests that hemp-derived THC may offer various health benefits, such as pain relief, reduced inflammation, improved sleep, and anxiety reduction. These potential benefits make it an appealing option for individuals seeking natural alternatives to traditional medications.
