While the 2018 Farm Bill has provided widespread access to cannabis products across the US, the true potential of cannabis is still suppressed. THC is an essential part of the cannabis experience that has been out of reach for many people until now!
SummitTHC is one of the hemp companies pushing the restrictive bounds of the Farm Bill by offering customers hemp-derived THC products. In addition to leading the industry in innovation, Summit THC gummies are infused with natural ingredients and are subjected to rigorous 3rd party testing from an ISO-accredited lab.
Our brand review will cover broad questions associated with hemp-derived THC and outline how Summit THC is going above and beyond industry standards to deliver a superior product.
Hemp Derived THC
The definition of hemp, according to the USDA, is a cannabis plant with less than 0.3% THC relative to dry weight. While hemp plants naturally only produce small amounts of THC, manufacturers can alter cannabinoids by changing their molecular composition.
Delta-8 and Delta-9 THC are naturally produced by hemp plants but not at a rate high enough to create THC products. Hemp-derived THC is converted from CBD to have a high enough amount for gummies, tinctures, smokable flower, and other extracts. Because of this process and a potency level of 0.3% relative to the weight of the entire product.
Delta 8 THC
D8 is a less effective form of THC produced naturally by hemp plants but in trace amounts. In 2020 Delta 8 flooded the cannabinoid hemp industry, getting the attention of state regulators. Many states against access to the new cannabinoid had existing medical or recreational marijuana programs.
Today, D8 is banned in several states, including Colorado, California, and Washington. Before purchasing Summit THC Delta 8 gummies, check the complete map of every state with Delta 8 restrictions at SummitTHC.
Delta 9 THC
As the popularity of D8 grew, so did the backlash from states. Thankfully, the industry evolved to continue to give consumers access to hemp-derived THC products. As a result, legal D9 is available to order online in all 50 states.
Delta 9 provides a more consistent experience than the D8. Summit recommends starting with a half when trying Summit THC Delta 9 gummies for the first time. We’re confident you will be satisfied with the effects, even if you’ve tried Delta 8 and were disappointed.
As the US continues to restrict access to safe, beneficial cannabis products, the industry proves resilient and delivers for the people. Hemp-derived Delta 9 demonstrates the power of the movement and gives consumers access to a more convenient, affordable, and effective form of the compound.
Is Hemp-Derived THC Legal?
Federally, Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC are legal. The ‘Farm Bill’ clearly states that cannabis products are permitted if they contain less than 0.3% THC by dry weight. The reason some states don’t allow Delta 8 is because state officials have passed legislation explicitly stating that the compound is restricted.
With all cannabis products, the legal classification is anything but straightforward. We would prefer widespread access to all cannabis extracts, at affordable prices, with the option to order online. However, drug policy in the US hasn’t caught up to the demand of the market.
