Got THC In Your Milk? Maybe You Can…

The question over how breast milk is affected by drug intake is big these days, what with all the prescription and non-prescription drugs flying around. The same issue technically goes for other animals, including cows; which have the designation of providing us milk. A recent study shows how cows that consume cannabis, have cannabinoids like THC and CBD in their milk. Is this okay for cows? And could this be a new way to use cannabis?

Drugs passing into breast milk

When it comes to human childbearing, there are certain issues that arise in terms of how to protect a fetus from chemicals. There is sometimes bickering over what can cross the amniotic sac and get to the baby. Likewise is the argument that a breastfeeding mom is likely to pass on the chemicals she ingests to her baby byway of breastmilk. As of yet, while mothers are often warned away from drugs like cannabis, evidence of it being damaging when consumed in breast milk is inconclusive at best. But that doesn’t mean other drugs can’t cause harm.

It’s even said that if you’re a woman breastfeeding who wants to do certain drugs, like “amphetamines, ecstasy, cocaine or heroin, you should not breastfeed for 24 hours after use.” And that for things like smoking or drinking, that breast feeding should come first. In fact, if a woman feels her breast milk is unclean, she can ‘pump and dump’, meaning pumping out a round, so that new clean milk is produced.

It’s generally recommended not to drink or take drugs within the first month of breast feeding, and some women maintain this for the entirety of the breast feeding experience. Of course, there are so many prescriptions that we take for so many things, that these days, its sadly hard to imagine that many babies get through without exposure to something.

Get your direct updates via the Cannadelics Weekly Newsletter; and take advantage of a wide array of deals on cannabis flowers, vapes & smoking devices, edibles, cannabinoid products (e.g. delta-8), amanita mushroom products, and a lot more stuff. Go on and make yourself feel good.

The reason this happens is because many compounds can pass through biological membranes, so long as they’re not too big (like insulin). The drugs are transferred from the mother’s plasma to the milk through passive diffusion across the membranes. This transfer is effected by things like protein binding, lipid solubility, and ionization. When the mother’s plasma protein binding is low and with high lipid solubility, this transfer is strongest. The other issue is that milk has greater acidity levels than plasma, which lets drugs with weak bases transfer more easily (think amphetamines and opioids).

This is the issue as seen for human mothers in our society. But it exists in another arena. We’re big drinkers of cow milk (whether it makes sense or not), and the same idea applies. If a cow is fed specific drugs, how likely are they to end up in the cow milk that we then consume? A recent study highlighted the ability for THC and other cannabinoids to be transferred to cow’s milk, when the animals are fed hemp.

The study on THC passing into cow’s milk

In November 2022, this study was published in Nature Food, called Transfer of cannabinoids into the milk of dairy cows fed with industrial hemp could lead to Δ9-THC exposure that exceeds acute reference dose. The idea was to establish if cannabinoids get transferred through animal milk (and in what amounts), when industrial hemp is used in animal feed products. In order to shine some light on the topic, this study was done by feeding cows hemp.

Researchers “collected and analyzed milk, blood plasma and feces, measured physiological parameters and observed animal behavior.” They also used “a liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry-based analytical technique that ensures differentiation between Δ9-THC and Δ9-THCA in various matrices,” which “enables quantification of the cannabinoids Δ8-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ8-THC), Δ9-tetrahydrocannabivarin (Δ9-THCV), CBD, cannabinol (CBN), cannabidivarin (CBDV) and the two Δ9-THC metabolites 11-hydroxy-Δ9-THC (11-OH-THC) and 11-nor-9-carboxy-Δ9-THC (THC-COOH).”

The data collected was then used to “develop a predictive toxicokinetic model, which can be used to simulate other exposure scenarios and to assess the transfer of different cannabinoids into cow milk when using industrial hemp as a dietary supplement for dairy cows.”

What did the study find in terms of cow health when ingesting hemp?

Researchers specifically used Holstein Friesian dairy cows, and first partially replaced their corn silage with hemp silage, which came from the whole plant and had a low cannabinoid level. This was the adaptation phase. After this, they were fed hemp silage which came from the cannabis leaves, flowers and seeds, and which contained high levels of cannabinoids. This was the experimental phase.

Cow milk is a product of what cows are fed

This experimental phase was done at two different levels. Group L was fed 0.84 kg a day for the low hemp group; and group H was fed 1.68 kg a day for the high hemp group. After this came a final phase – depuration, in which no hemp was given and the cows cleaned the hemp from their systems.

Results show that when fed up to .92kg/day from the lower cannabinoid hemp option (standard industrial hemp used in adaptation phase), there was no difference in physiological parameters or overall health issues. On the other hand, cows fed the higher cannabinoid hemp did experience effects in both experimental groups. Both feed intake (and therefore) milk production went down greatly after Day 2 with both groups. Results also showed that respiratory rate and heart rate both went down in a matter of hours for both experimental groups. With some animals, they fell enough to be considered bradypnea or bradycardia.

Changes were also seen in the animals’ behavior and physical appearance. They had greater tongue play, yawned and salivated more, had more nasal secretions, experienced reddening and prolapse of the nictitating membrane (third eye lid), and appeared tired. Some animals in the higher consumption group stood abnormally, and for longer periods of time; and walked unsteadily and carefully.

All changes to the cows lasted until about two days after the hemp feeding stopped. The hemp didn’t affect basic milk constituents like fat and lactose, nor did it affect body temperature or body weight. To be clear, these cows were not fed a normal amount of THC, even for their body sizes. They were fed approximately 86X (per their sizes) the minimum amount of THC to cause adverse effects in humans. This makes the health results a bit questionable in term of what should actually be expected. Other studies have not shown negative reactions with standard industrial hemp feed.

Cannabinoid transfer when cows are fed hemp

The cow milk was tested after hemp consumption. During both the adaptation phase and experimental phase, “measurable levels of ∆9-THC, ∆9-THCA, ∆9-THCV, CBD, CBN and CBDV in cow’s milk” were found. On the last day of the cleaning out phase, THC and CBD were still detected in the breast milk. Other cannabinoids were not detected during any of the study. When compared to corresponding blood plasma levels, delta-9 THC was found at concentrations 6-26X higher after the experimental period, whereas it was 3-5X higher for THCV, and 11-32X higher for CBD. This implies the cannabinoids can accumulate in the milk.

Not all cannabinoids seemed to accumulate though. THCA and CBDV didn’t show this, and CBN couldn’t be detected in plasma, so no comparison was made. Though urine was collected, there were some issues that essentially kept it from being evaluated and used in the data; so all information that could have come from that, is missing.

THC is naturally infused into milk when cows eat hemp
THC is naturally infused into milk when cows eat hemp

Study investigators concluded that “Our study shows that feeding cannabinoid-rich industrial hemp silage made from leaves, flowers and seeds leads to a decrease in feed intake and milk yield in dairy cows.” In terms of cannabinoids passing into milk, they go on to say that “The toxicokinetic modelling has shown that the transfer rates of the examined cannabinoids from feed to milk were less than 1%.” Let’s remember, these cows were fed huge amounts of cannabinoids like THC, so 1% is still a lot under the circumstances.

They go on, “Nevertheless, due to the high feed intake, cow’s milk reached substantial levels of Δ9-THC such that the exposure might exceed ARfD in some population groups in our exposure scenario based on the transfer properties presented here.” They also stipulate, “For other cannabinoids, in particular for CBD, which was present in high amounts in industrial hemp (and thus also in cow’s milk after feeding), the data are currently insufficient, thereby preventing an assessment of possible health risks.”


This is an interesting study which backs up what we already kind of knew, that some constituents of the cannabis plant should make it into cow milk when hemp is eaten. One of the issues with the results however, is that the cows were fed such large amounts of THC. When fed the lower THC hemp, there were no issues, indicating the likelier feed option, probably won’t cause a problem.

Regardless, it does go to show that milk can be engineered to have cannabinoids, by changing the diet of the cow. However we should remember that cows are living things, and using them to produce natural THC infused milk, brings up even more ethical issues, than the ones that come with the existence of the industry in general. Perhaps this is a good reminder of the on-the-horizon synthetic milk, which is yet another strange breakthrough in the general milk industry; though also not one without a lot of controversy.

The Strongest THC Blends

Today, we can customize our cannabis high like never before thanks to cannabinoids like delta-8 THC, delta-10 THC, THC-P, HHC, THC-H, THCjd, delta-9 THC, and many more, all of which promise a one-of-a-kind high that varies in potency and effects.

But, with a vast array of new THC cannabinoids jockeying for our attention, choosing just one isn’t always easy. And, that’s where THC blends come from. This new trend in the industry allows us to enjoy the effects of multiple THC cannabinoids simultaneously, as you’re about to find out here. Use the code HIGHTIMES25 to try THC blends for 25% off here.

What are the Strongest THC Blends?

THC blends refer to hemp products that contain more than one type of THC cannabinoid—for instance, delta-8 THC + THC-P.  What this does is allow us to experience a completely one-of-a-kind experience which results not only from the combined effects of each, but the synergistic reaction of taking them together, which can give us something super desirable, like enhanced feelings of euphoria or relaxation.

THC blends come in all kinds of product forms—vapes, tinctures, gummies and so on—and contain a variety of cannabinoid distillates, which are purified extracts of individual cannabinoids in the hemp plant. And, long-time fan favorite Binoid is the brand that’s leading the way.  

Now, let’s explore their highly anticipated THC blends, so that way, you can find the right product(s) to meet your daily hemp-related needs.

Binoid Knockout Blend

Binoid’s first foray into THC blending was their Knockout Blend, beginning as a disposable vape in two great strains—Fire OG and Ice Breaker—but now also available in gummies and tinctures. This blend combines THC-P, HHC-P and THC-H, which, if you happen to be a serious hemp enthusiast, you may know are three mind-blowingly intoxicating cannabinoids derived from the plant. The result is an ultra-potent and euphoric experience that is guaranteed to “knock” you off of your feet.   

Why Choose Knockout Blend: Knockout Blend is a great option for the hemp enthusiast looking for an intensely potent high that comes with lots of sweet euphoria.

Binoid Master Blend

Another great option is Binoid’s Master Blend, a carefully curated cannabinoid trio consisting of THCP-O, THCH-O and PHC. The former two cannabinoids are acetated forms of THC-P and THC-H respectively, to enhance the psychoactive potency of what are already the two most intoxicating cannabinoids naturally found in cannabis. Then, we have PHC, which is an acetated form of delta-9 that converts into delta-9 in the body.

Binoid’s Master Blend is available in the form of a disposable vaping device containing a very generous 3 grams of vape oil. And, you can choose between two very special strains: King Kong and Godzilla.

Why Choose Master Blend: Master Blend is a phenomenal choice for the enthusiast who wants something that’s absolutely out of this world in terms of its psychoactive potency, to make them incredibly high.

Courtesy Binoid

Binoid Beast Mode Blend

Then, we have Binoid’s Beast Mode Blend—a blend that lives up to its name, made up of THC-H, THC-B and HHC-P—3 highly intoxicating cannabinoids that can give you a euphoric effect that’s out of this world. This blend comes in the form of vapes—disposables and pre-filled cartridges—and a variety of top-shelf strains, including Strawberry Banana, Berries n’ Cream, Blue Dragon, Red Dragon and more.

Why Choose Beast Mode Blend: Beast Mode Blend is all about the dreamy, uplifting effects that so many of us seek out when we take cannabis products. It’s also an extremely powerful combination when it comes to the high you’ll be treated to.

Courtesy Binoid

Binoid Power 9 Blend

Finally, we have Binoid’s Power 9 Blend, a very exciting combination of delta-9 THC, THC-B and THCjd, with the latter two cannabinoids being more potent than the former, and together having the strong potential to induce a deeply gratifying relaxation effect in the mind & body. This blend, like Beast Mode, is made available in both pre-filled vape cart and disposable vape pen form, with ultra-beloved strain options like Melon Gum, Tangerine Haze, Caramel Cream and Candy Apple.

Why Choose Power 9 Blend: Power 9 Blend gives you two things that so many enthusiasts crave: a full-on mind and body relaxation, along with the effects of delta-9 THC through a legal avenue.

THC blends have arrived, flaunting the latest and greatest additions to the hemp market over the past couple of years.

Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, the Iconic ‘Father of Cannabis,’ Dies at 92

Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, the scientific giant and pioneer who first studied the effects of the cannabis plant and synthesize THC, has died at the age of 92 in his home in Israel, according to an announcement by American Friends of the Hebrew University. His passing is as monumental as it was unexpected and the reaction has been swift from all corners of the cannabis industry, an industry his unprecedented scientific findings made possible in the first place.

The Bulgarian-born scientist was arrested early in his career for carrying five kilos of what he called “superb smuggled Lebanese hashish” while on a bus in Tel Aviv. Dr. Mechoulam had the hash in his possession to analyze, not to smoke. Though the epic journey of this scientific giant began rather auspiciously, the soon-to-be icon wouldn’t be interrupted by anything else on his determined quest for answers surrounding the powerful plant.

Historic Findings

Dr. Mechoulam’s twin historic findings he led with his research team at Hebrew University School of Pharmacy included isolating THC, the psychoactive component found in all cannabis plants, as well as CBD or cannabidiol, the prevalent and active ingredient in cannabis with a wide array of medicinal and curative benefits.

Dr. Mechoulam’s findings cannot be understated for their undeniable significance, thus his well-earned moniker as the “Father of Cannabis.”

Immigrating with his family to Israel from Bulgaria in 1949, Dr. Mechoulam joined the scientific staff of the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot, Israel (after graduating with a PhD from said institution) eventually becoming a professor at Hebrew University in 1972.

A fierce advocate of legalized cannabis, Dr. Mechoulam often voiced his dismay at the strict drug laws in the US and throughout the world. As the scientist and his team discovered more about the healing powers found in the magical plant—particularly in the areas of cancer and epilepsy—he voiced his frustration to The New York Times in 2017. “Israel has more clinical trials than the United States at the moment, which is ridiculous,” Dr. Mechoulam said.

Dr. Raphael Mechoulam teaching at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in the 1960s.

In the 1990s, Dr. Mechoulam discovered the endocannabinoid system which does nothing less than regulate homeostasis in human beings (and how, all of us, in turn, deal with cannabinoids).

As the fable grows of this massively important figure in the history of cannabis, it’s said Dr. Mechoulam started studying cannabis—something he has done his entire adult life—simply because he wanted to go into a scientific area not yet over crowded. Also, the fact that he resided in the relatively small country of Israel, the single most famous cannabis researcher in the world figured, “let’s give cannabis a go.”

Until his passing, Dr. Mechoulam was the president of the Hebrew University’s Multidisciplinary Center for Cannabis Research, the largest such center in Israel, and a globally important institution conducting breakthrough research into cannabis, cannabinoids and endocannabinoid.

“Dr. Raphael Mechoulam pioneered the paradigm shift from cannabis being a recreational experience to being an elevated medical opportunity,” says Cannabis Now Publisher and CEO, Eugenio Garcia.

“With cannabis being relatively new, there are leaders who made truly remarkable strides in the space. With Dr. Mechoulam’s passing, we have lost another legend. We are grateful for his vision and mission to unlock what cannabis can do for the planet and to heal people.”

In 2020, Cannabis Now traveled to Israel to explore the cannabis culture and participate in the annual Canna Tech Conference hosted in Tel Aviv.

“When we were filming our documentary in Israel, Dr. Mechoulam was very generous with his time,” says Garcia. “He invited us to the university to participate in a conversation about the science and benefits of cannabis. It was wonderful to connect with him in person.”

Introducing The Power 9 Blend Gummies

The Power 9 Blend gummies are the latest addition to Binoid’s product line, and they are taking the world by storm. Following the success of the Power 9 vape carts and the Power 9 disposables, both top-selling products, the company has introduced a new edible product, using the same effective blend. These edibles are infused with the ‘Power 9’ blend, a powerful mix of cannabinoids, including Delta 9 THC, THC-JD, HHC-P, THC-B, Delta 8, and HHC, to provide an intense and full-body experience. The gummies come in a tasty Strawberry Kiwi flavor that is sure to tantalize your taste buds.

One of the main reasons why these new gummies are becoming so popular is because of the unique blend of cannabinoids used in their production. The premium live resin THC-P, THC-H, and HHC-P distillate used in these gummies provides a powerful entourage effect that amplifies the potency of the product. As a result, you are advised to be careful with dosing, given the strength of the product…

The Power 9 Blend gummies are designed to give users an intense full-body experience that is perfect for powering through the day. People who have used this product claim that it gives an experience similar to Delta 9, but with a more well-rounded effect. This makes the gummies ideal for those who have a high tolerance for cannabis products and are looking for an intense body and mental high.

The benefits of the Power 9 Blend gummies are subjective and vary from person to person. However, based on firsthand user experiences, the gummies provide a heavy buzz, a mental and physical experience, intense relaxation, relief from stress, and a long-lasting feeling of happiness. The long-lasting feeling of happiness that users experience is one of the key reasons why these new high-potency edibles are becoming so popular among cannabis users.

How to Use the Power 9 Blend Gummies

Users are advised to start with a small dosage, such as half a gummy or less, and gradually increase it as they see fit. As with other THC edibles, the effects of the gummies may take up to 90 minutes to kick in, so it is important to be patient. Don’t rush into taking a few more immediately after taking the first one, as unlike smokables, edibles need more time to be felt…

In addition, users should also be careful with dosing, given the strength of the product.

Each gummy contains 40mg of the Power 9 Blend formula, with 20 pieces per jar. Currently, as part of the ‘Deal Of The Day‘ promotion, you can get an additional 25% discount, using the Delta25 coupon code and save big on this trending product!

DEA & FDA: The Confusion Over Legal Drugs VS Legal Products

This fight is ongoing. Are all cannabinoids that have to do with hemp, legal? Are hemp-derived cannabinoids that are completely or partially synthetic, legal? Are the cannabinoids that show up in nature, but are only used for production as synthetics, legal? And what about the products that are made from these compounds? Are they legal? There’s a mass amount of confusion on this, and on one end, a pretty discreet answer. So here we ago, when it comes to the DEA and FDA, what’s the difference between legal drugs, and legal products?

DEA, FDA, and USDA: what do these government agencies do?

For the most part, we have a generally good idea about this, but just to be clear, let’s quickly go over on a broad scale, the purpose (and power) of these government agencies. We’ll start with the DEA.

According to the agency, “The mission of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is to enforce the controlled substances laws and regulations of the United States and bring to the criminal and civil justice system of the United States, or any other competent jurisdiction, those organizations and principal members of organizations, involved in the growing, manufacture, or distribution of controlled substances appearing in or destined for illicit traffic in the United States.”

On another hand, according to the FDA, “The Food and Drug Administration is responsible for protecting the public health by ensuring the safety, efficacy, and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, and medical devices; and by ensuring the safety of our nation’s food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation.”

It goes on, “FDA also has responsibility for regulating the manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of tobacco products to protect the public health and to reduce tobacco use by minors.” And, “is responsible for advancing the public health by helping to speed innovations that make medical products more effective, safer, and more affordable and by helping the public get the accurate, science-based information they need to use medical products and foods to maintain and improve their health.”

As the FDA controls the regulation of all tobacco products, as stated, this includes vapes. Vapes are currently regulated under tobacco law, meaning all usage of vapes (e-cigarettes) falls under FDA regulation as electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS).

As far as the USDA, “We provide leadership on food, agriculture, natural resources, rural development, nutrition, and related issues based on public policy, the best available science, and effective management. We have a vision to provide economic opportunity through innovation, helping rural America to thrive; to promote agriculture production that better nourishes Americans while also helping feed others throughout the world; and to preserve our Nation’s natural resources through conservation, restored forests, improved watersheds, and healthy private working lands.”

These three agencies all play a role with cannabis in some way. The USDA regulates industrial hemp cultivation; the DEA regulates the legality of drug compounds; and the FDA regulates cannabis in products like foods, cosmetics, medicines, and supplements. These designations are important when looking at the controversy over the cannabinoid industry (and the cannabis industry as a whole), and the idea of legal drugs vs legal products.

The part of the USDA

There is a huge argument right now over which cannabis compounds are legal, and which products are legal; and these two questions are fundamentally different, because they’re governed by different agencies. So, to get an idea how it works with cannabis, let’s go over the breakdown between the legality of one vs the other.

To start with, the USDA’s 2018 Farm Bill legalized the cultivation of industrial hemp. And set a definition for ‘hemp’, which is the basis for a huge, and ongoing, argument, over exactly what this refers to; particularly in the case of wholly synthetic, or partially synthetic compounds. The ambiguity is partly related to the US not having a general definition for ‘natural’, meaning, there are no definitions for other thing like ‘naturally-derived’ either. Such a term is often used to greenwash products (make them sound more natural than they are), which has led to multiple lawsuits.

Natural and naturally-derived

There is more specific regulation on this front in terms of food, however, with organic laws setting particular standards. And with organizations like the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) which set standards for cosmetics and food. Apart from offering the hemp definition that causes so many problems (on one front), the USDA is less involved in the rest of the argument.

Legal cannabis drugs vs legal cannabis products, which is DEA and which is FDA?

USDA aside, the DEA regulates drugs on behalf of the Department of Justice. It holds drug scheduling lists that determine the legality and uses of a drug on a federal level. Schedule I is for 100% illegal drugs with no accepted medical use, a high risk of danger, and a high risk of addiction. These drugs are illegal for any resident to possess, use, cultivate, sell, transport, traffic, or do anything else with. Cannabis is one of these drugs. However, recently, plants with no more than .3% THC were legalized by the most recent farm bill, for industrial use; by moving regulation for cultivation and production (only) to the USDA.

When we want to know if a drug is legal in general, we look to the DEA. And that’s why the agency has fielded inquires, like from the Alabama Board of Pharmacy about delta-8, and more recently, by attorney Rod Kight in terms of two synthetic cannabinoids: Delta-9-THCO and delta-8-THCO. In both cases, it stipulated they’re illegal. These questions are about overall legality, like, can I have it at all as a legal compound, or will simply having it be a federal offense. But that’s where DEA control ends.

The problem with the current debate, is that its essentially over products, rather than standard legality. Whether the DEA says the compounds are legal or not, has 100% no bearing on whether they’re legal to use in products. And that’s because the FDA (NOT the DEA) overseas all uses of cannabis in anything related to medical, supplements, cosmetics, smoking, and food products.

This means anything dealing with cannabis in vapes, is illegal. As is every other kind of cannabis product: oils and tinctures (both supplements, or food), creams, patches, and makeup (cosmetics, or medicine), pills, and treatments of any kind (medicine or supplements). They’re all uniformly illegal; because the FDA never made them legal.

What does the FDA permit? “With the exception of Epidiolex, Marinol, and Syndros, no product containing cannabis or cannabis-derived compounds (either plant-based or synthetic) has been approved as safe and effective for use in any patient population, whether pediatric or adult.”

FDA allows legal cannabis pharmaceutical products
FDA allows legal cannabis pharmaceutical products

If it needs to be stated more clearly, this ends the question of whether any cannabis product is legal on a federal level. And the answer is no. Once again, this is unrelated to whether the DEA classifies something as illegal or not. In fact, it should be remembered that the DEA has cannabis in Schedule I, yet the FDA approved Epidiolex, Marinol, and Syndros. Which means an illegal drug can still be used in legal products, should the FDA pass them. And a legal drug, is still illegal in products, if the FDA doesn’t make an allowance.

Why do people try to use DEA answers to promote product legality?

Hard for me to say, but I have my theories. One of them is simply confusion. I fully admit I, myself, was quite entangled in the ‘synthetic or not’ aspect of the argument for a long time. And that still matters in terms of legal drugs, but it doesn’t affect legal products. At least not in current circumstances. When an industry has regulation through different government bodies for the same topic, it can get confusing. And for many, it might seem like the DEA holds the answers to issues of product legality.

The other possibility is more a manipulation issue. The ideas generally focused on when speaking of the debate on hemp-derived cannabinoids, are whether they cross the .3% THC level at any point in processing, and whether they’re synthetic to some degree and what that means. That’s because these things can be argued. What is less arguable, is that the agency that allows legal products, never changed its stance. If industry promoters and vendors had the public focus on this, their products would be seen as illegal with no recourse. If response letters from the FDA were published, there wouldn’t be a question.

This is similar to how I believe the government uses methods of subterfuge to keep American attention off certain topics. Whether the cannabinoid industry is dirty or not, it simply doesn’t come with any real death toll that can be attributed to anything but additives. As in, not any of the cannabinoids, synthetic or not, have caused an issue to any real degree. On the other hand, while the government talks of them like they’re a massive threat to humanity, it continues to push opioids through regulation, as they now kill close to 100 thousand people a year.

Same concept. By focusing on the DEA, and whether a drug is legal overall, takes attention away from the fact that the FDA regulates products, and the DEA has nothing to do with this. The cannabinoid products industry isn’t going to focus on the legal aspect that renders it completely illegal. It’s going to focus on the debatable part, and sell it products based on the argument therein.

Final thoughts

I really don’t care if the products market continues. I mean, it’s a bit gross, with trademark violations, fake labs, mislabeled products, and no way to know what’s added in. But legal markets tend to have these issues too. And realistically, they ain’t killing anyone. My argument is simply about understanding the legal landscape, and not falling victim to subterfuge marketing moves when it comes to this understanding. But am I parading around for the end of cannabinoids? No. And realistically, illegal or not, there seem to be few, if any, repercussions involved; likely because the US can’t fight another losing drug war.

Issues with mislabeled cannabis products
Issues with mislabeled cannabis products

I’d sure love if everyone had access to the real plant (which seems to lower use of synthetics anyway), but I also know people like to get high and will try what’s available. And if its not going to cause damage, or at least, not in remotely the same ballpark as other drugs like medically approved opioids and benzodiazepines, and illegal ones like meth; it kind of seems like the FDA should suck it up, and allow it to happen. Although, in the world of reality, the market continues regardless.

Amanita Hemp Cup Products at 2023 High Times Competition

Although the hemp cup doesn’t get quite as much attention as the ever-popular annual cannabis cups, this year might be a bit different as a new product makes its debut in the competition. In the 2023 judge kits (which are available now for purchase), you may be pleasantly surprised to find Amanita Hemp Cup products containing muscimol from Amanita muscaria mushrooms, in combination with popular cannabinoids.  

Muscimol, Mushrooms & Amanita Hemp Cup Products 

Amanita muscaria, also known as Fly Agaric, or simply, amanita mushroom, is a member of the family of fungi, of the genus Amanita. Although it can be found all over the world today, Amanitas are native to the temperate and boreal regions of the Northern Hemisphere, which includes Europe, North America, and Siberia – where they can be found growing under various types of deciduous and conifer trees, such as birch and pine. 

Amanita muscaria are probably one of the easiest to recognize mushroom species. If you play video games (like Mario or Assassin’s Creed) or watch movies (Sonic, Alice in Wonderland, Fantasia, etc.), you’ve likely seen these shrooms at least once or twice. They have round, dome-shaped, red caps with white spots, white gills, and stout, bulky stems.  

The active ingredients in Fly Agarics are muscimol and ibotenic acid. Muscimol works by activating the major inhibitory neurotransmitter system, gamma amino butyric acid (GABA). As an inhibitory system, muscimol suppresses the activity of certain neurons in the brain, which is how the psychoactive effects are produced. 

The ibotenic acid, which is responsible for the sickness and “toxicity” commonly reported from these mushrooms, converts to muscimol during decarboxylation. Decarbing is a chemical reaction that removes a carboxyl group and releases carbon dioxide (CO2), typically through the application of heat. If amanita products are prepared correctly, then at least 70 percent (preferably more) of the ibotenic acid will become muscimol. 

The high from muscimol is not as intense as psilocybin, but fun and therapeutic nonetheless. In my personal experience with gummies, it was a fun yet relaxing experience, somewhat dissociative in nature, with a wonderfully warm and tingly feeling body high, and a bit of auditory enhancement. It’s something I would definitely experiment with more, as I would like to try different products types and doses.

Apart from the expected items like vape products, flower, edibles, tinctures, and so on, all make from hemp-derived cannabinoids, and interesting addition in this year’s competition will be gummies and pre-rolled joints containing muscimol combined with HHC, Delta 8 THC, and CBD. 

I could not find a great deal of information on these products, most likely because they are keeping things lowkey while the judge kits are still for sale. However, this is what I was able to find on the amanita/cannabis products that will be in the 2023 Hemp Cup: 

In the psychoactive box, you will find: “25 mg HHC” gummies “dipped in Amanita muscaria mushroom chocolate”, prerolls containing “Amanita pantherina powder blended with organic indoor hemp flower, 250 mg total”, and delta 8 hemp flower “infused with Amanita muscaria powder coating on the outside, 500 mg total”.

With the addition of amanita compounds, all of these products are considered “psychoactive”, even the CBD flower joints. All of these products are new to the market, so as far as effects go, it’s hard to say how that combination will work. In my personal experience, cannabis works well with just about everything, including muscimol, so I’m curious to learn more about the effects of combining specific cannabinoids with the mushroom extracts.

HHC Carts Are a Buzz! Risks, Benefits & More

In hemp plants, the cannabinoid hexahydrocannabidiol (HHC) is found in small amounts. There are small amounts of this compound naturally occurring. Delta-9 THC is hydrogenated commercially to produce it. Especially for smokers who are trying to quit, HHC carts are becoming increasingly popular.

A basic understanding of HHC is essential before using it. The purpose of this article is to examine the benefits and risks of using HHC carts.

Currently, there is no clear legal status for HHC. The chemical compound hexahydrocannabinol occurs naturally in hemp. Because it isn’t THC, it’s not psychoactive

In accordance with the 2018 Farm Bill, this should be legal.

HHC, on the other hand, is synthetically produced in laboratories. Its Schedule 1 status would actually result in the DEA banning it.

Different states have different laws regarding HHC. At the moment, HHC is readily available, but we hope that will continue to be the case in the future.

Benefits Associated with Using HHC Carts

In order to fully understand the benefits of HHC, further scientific investigation is needed. The endocannabinoid system interacts with HHC directly or indirectly because it is a cannabinoid.

Courtesy Delta Cart

HHC (Hexahydrocannabinol) carts are a relatively new form of THC product that are gaining popularity in the cannabis market. Some potential benefits of using HHC carts may include:

  1. Potency: HHC carts are reported to be more potent than traditional THC products, such as delta-8 and delta-9 THC, which may provide users with a stronger and more euphoric high.
  1. More relaxed high: HHC carts have been described as providing a more relaxing and calming high compared to other THC products, making it a good option for those who want to unwind or alleviate stress.
  1. Potential therapeutic benefits: Some users report that HHC has potential therapeutic benefits, including pain relief, mood enhancement, and improved focus.
  1. Improved taste: Many HHC carts have been noted for their pleasant flavor and smooth draw, which can make the experience of using them more enjoyable.
  1. Potential for increased creativity: Some users have reported that HHC can lead to a more creative and imaginative state of mind, which could be beneficial for artists, writers, and other creative professionals.
  1. Pain relief: HHC inhibits the transmission of pain sensation in mice, according to a study. Consequently, HHC may be useful in managing chronic pain.

Carts vs. Flower – So Which Is Better?

Inhaling vapor from a vape involves heating HHC oil. As an alternative to smoking, HHC vapes are becoming increasingly popular. Smoking and vaping differ in that the former involves the inhalation of smoke, while the latter involves the inhalation of vapor.

  1. Vaping is a milder way to consume cannabis than smoking: smoking is harsh on the lungs.
  1. If your knee pain becomes unbearable at work, you can use your vape to relieve it. Simply inhale some HHC in the bathroom.
  1. By inhaling HHC vapor, you can relieve pain in a few minutes: HHC vapor diffuses into the bloodstream more quickly than other types of vapor.
  1. Using this method of consuming HHC is less expensive.
  1. The health effects of vaping are less debilitating than those of smoking.
  1. HHC oil dosage can be controlled: you can control how much oil you put into the vape. Therefore, it reduces the incidence of the possibility of overdosing or toxic effects.

Possible Side Effects of Vaping

Cannabinoids can have some risks, especially when used excessively. HHC’s dangers are not sufficiently explored in research. The following are some of the expected side effects:

  • Dryness of mouth
  • Appetite increases
  • Increase of heart rate
  • Redness of eyes
  • Paranoia

HHC vs. Delta-9 THC

HHC (Hexahydrocannabinol) and delta-9 THC are both forms of tetrahydrocannabinol, the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis. However, there are some key differences between the two:

  1. Potency: HHC is reported to be more potent than delta-9 THC, meaning that users may need to consume less of it to achieve the desired effects.
  2. Effects: While delta-9 THC is often associated with a strong, euphoric high, HHC is said to provide a more relaxed and calming high. Some users have also reported feeling more creative and focused after using HHC.
  1. Legality: While delta-9 THC is still illegal at the federal level in the United States, HHC is currently legal in most states, as it is considered to be a “hemp-derived” product.
  1. Research: Delta-9 THC has been extensively researched and studied, and its effects are well-known. However, HHC is a relatively new substance, and there is limited research on its effects and potential risks.

It’s important to note that, as with all cannabis products, the effects of HHC can vary depending on the individual user, the quality and potency of the product, and other factors such as dosage and frequency of use. Additionally, it is important to use all cannabis products responsibly and in moderation, and to consult with a healthcare professional before using any new THC products, particularly if you have any underlying health conditions or are taking other medications.

Currently, HHC is still being researched as a semi-synthetic cannabinoid. Even though hemp contains a small amount, hydrogenation is used to produce it in large quantities. More states allow HHC vapes than THC, which is an advantage.

Moreover, HHC has a lower potency than delta-9, but a higher potency than delta-8. For individuals seeking something in-between, HHC may be the best option.

Delta-8 THC vs Delta-9 THC: What Are the Key Differences?

Cannabis has been a popular substance for centuries, mainly for its psychoactive effects, but also for its medical benefits. Two of today’s most popular psychoactive cannabinoids found in cannabis are Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC. While they may sound similar, they have distinct differences in their chemical structure, psychoactive effects, medical benefits, and legality. Delta-8 THC vs Delta-9 THC: what are the main differences between the two?

Delta-8 THC vs Delta-9 THC:

I. Introduction

In recent years the popularity of both Cannabis and hemp have been growing steadily. Both plants contain a range of compounds known as cannabinoids, which have various effects on the body, both medical and recreational.

Two of the most well-known cannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis are Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC. While Delta-8 THC is a minor cannabinoid that is found in small amounts, Delta-9 THC, on the other hand, is the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis. Both Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC have distinct differences in their chemical structure, psychoactive effects, medical benefits and legality, which we will explore in this article.

II. What is Delta-8 THC?

Delta-8 THC is a minor cannabinoid that occurs naturally both in hemp and in cannabis plants. However, it is a rare cannabinoid that could be found only in small amounts, usually less than 1% of the total cannabinoid content. Delta-8 THC is created when Delta-9 THC oxidizes, and it is also produced through a process called isomerization, which converts CBD into Delta-8 THC. As it is a rare cannabinoid, most of the Delta 8 we are using today, is hemp-derived, which really means, it was converted from CBD and remain legal, as a result of the farm bill loophole.

Delta-8 THC is known for its ability to induce a milder psychoactive effect than Delta-9 THC. It is believed to be less potent than Delta-9 THC and can provide a more relaxed, calm experience. It is also known for its potential medical benefits, including pain relief, reduced anxiety, and increased appetite.

III. What is Delta-9 THC?

Delta-9 THC is the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis, but also found in smaller numbers in hemp. It is responsible for the desirable euphoric “high” usually associated with using cannabis. As Delta-9 THC is naturally produced by the cannabis plant most of Delta 9 products found in the market today are not using synthetic cannabinoids. However, recently we have seen many Delta 9 products that are hemp-derived, which means that the have started their journey as CBD and converted into THC.

Delta 9 THC becomes psychoactive through a process called decarboxylation, which occurs when the cannabis is heated, such as when it is smoked or vaporized. This is another nice loophole, that allows THCA products to be legally sold, as they only converted to Delta 9 THC when heated. However, as you need to heat it inorder to use it, these legal safe products, are as potent as regular THC is…

Delta-9 THC is known for its potent psychoactive effects, which can include altered perception, increased heart rate, and impaired coordination. It is also associated with a range of potential medical benefits, including pain relief, reduced nausea, and increased appetite.

IV. Delta-8 THC vs Delta-9 THC

Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC are two similar cannabinoids with some key differences in their chemical structure, psychoactive effects, legality, and medical benefits. However, when it comes to products, you can easily find both Delta 9 and Delta 8 coming in a variety of products, such as vapes, gummies, tinctures, edibles, disposables, carts, dabs, flower, capsules, etc.

Chemical structure

The main difference between Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC is in their chemical structure. Delta-8 THC has a double bond on the 8th carbon atom, while Delta-9 THC has a double bond on the 9th carbon atom. While it sounds like a small variation, as we can see below, this difference in the placement of the double bond results in some notable differences in their effects on the body.

Psychoactive effects

It is safe to claim that in most cases and for most people Delta-8 THC is less psychoactive than Delta-9 THC, meaning that it has a milder and more relaxing effect on the body. Delta-8 THC is often described as providing a more clear-headed and focused high, with less anxiety and paranoia than Delta-9 THC. Some users have also reported feeling more energetic and creative after using Delta-8 THC. However, as the variety of products in the market is evolving, it is now very common to find blended products, featuting many cannabinoids, which makes it harder to back-up such claims.

On the other hand, Delta-9 THC is more potent and can induce a more intense high, sometimes causing anxiety, paranoia, and even in very rare cases, hallucinations in some users. Delta-9 THC can also cause physical effects such as dry mouth, red eyes, increased heart rate, and impaired coordination. For all trhat matters, when people discuss ‘Cannabis’ or ‘THC’ they usually refer to Delta-9 THC.


The legality of Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC is a complex and constantly evolving issue. As a result of the 2018 farm bill, Delta-8 THC is legal at the federal level, but some states have banned it, while others have not yet made a decision. In contrast, Delta-9 THC remains illegal under federal law, but has been legalized for medical or recreational use in some states. All that said, a new Farm Bill loophole allows hemp-derived Delta-9 THC to be sold ‘legally’…

As a result, in the US, the legality of Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC is largely determined by the source of the compounds and not by its psychoactive abilities. This might be change soom, in 2023 Farm Bill, coming sometime this year.

As we have seen, Delta-8 THC can be derived from hemp or cannabis, while Delta-9 THC is mainly found in cannabis, but also can derived from hemp. Under the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp and hemp-derived products were legalized at the federal level, as long as they contain less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC by dry weight. This includes Delta-8 THC, which can be extracted from hemp. This opening has allowed a whole new market of hemp-derived Delta-9 THC which legality is constantly under quiestioning. However, this market is booming now so anyone can get any products they want, as long as it is coming from hemp…

This means that Delta-8 THC, and in some cases, Delta-9 THC products that are derived from hemp and meet the requirements of the 2018 Farm Bill are legal at the federal level. However, some states have tried to ban it on a state level, while others have not yet made a decision on its legality. It is important to note that until 2023 Farm Bill will address these matters, the legality of THC at the state level can vary widely, and consumers should always check their state’s laws before purchasing or using Delta-8 THC or Delta-9 THC products.

Delta-8 THC vs Delta-9 THC – Legality

Ignoring the Delta 9 loophole, Delta-9 THC remains illegal under federal law, although several states have legalized it for medical or recreational use. However, it is still illegal to possess, sell or use Delta-9 THC products at the federal level, regardless of whether they are used for medical or recreational purposes. As discussed earlier, this is only true unless it is hemp-derived, or unless the new farm bill will decide to make some clear order here.

It is important to note that the legality of Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC is a complex issue, and it is important for consumers to do their own research and understand the laws in their state before purchasing or using these products. Good luck with that…

Medical benefits

Like Delta-9 THC, Delta-8 THC has shown potential in the treatment of various medical conditions. Some studies have suggested that Delta-8 THC may have antiemetic, analgesic, and anxiolytic effects, making it a potential treatment for nausea, pain, and anxiety. Additionally, Delta-8 THC has been found to stimulate appetite and can be used to combat the loss of appetite and weight loss associated with some medical conditions.

As the medical benfits of using cannabis is a huge field of study, we will devote a seperate article to it. However, when all debates are gone one thing remains true, which is the question is it good for you or not… My personal opinion is that if Delta-9 THC or Delta-8 THC have clear medical benefits (or even medicinal benefits) for you, this should be your decision whether or not to use it. However, under current regulations, nost people in the world are still denied this right and this is sad, especially when everyone see the huge medical benefits this plant is bringing us. Just be responsible when using it and act with caution.

As we can see in the article below, even Israel, the homeland of medical cannabis program, is now trying to restrict the access of medical cannabis to new patients.

After comparing and contrasting Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC, you may be wondering which one is right for you. The answer depends on your individual needs and preferences.

If you are looking for a milder psychoactive effect and don’t want to experience the anxiety or paranoia associated with high doses of Delta-9 THC, products with low to medium levels Delta-8 THC may be a better option. Delta-8 THC has been reported to have a more relaxing and calming effect than Delta-9 THC, while still providing the euphoria and pain relief associated with cannabis use. It also has less of a “couch-lock” effect, meaning that it is less likely to make you feel lethargic or sedated.

On the other hand, if you are looking for a stronger psychoactive effect, or if you have a high tolerance to cannabis and want a more potent product, Delta-9 THC may be a better choice. Delta-9 THC is more widely available and has been studied more extensively than Delta-8 THC, which means that there is more information available about its effects and potential benefits.

It’s worth noting that the assumptions above are not written in stone and that today’s products are usually high-potency blends, so either you try for yourself to find what is right for you, or you look into the labels and start following how each compound and terpenes is affecting you. If you plan to use it for medical and not for recreational, it might be a smart move to consult a medical proffessional, as this is your health after all.

Whatever you do start low and grow slow, be responsible and use it with caution. Also. last but not least, have fun, as it is cannabis after all…

VI. Everything might change with the 2023 Farm Bill

The 2023 Farm Bill is currently being constructed, and it is expected to bring changes to the legal status of hemp. A farm bill is an omnibus law that addresses a wide range of agricultural and food programs, and it is renewed every five years. The 2018 Farm Bill legalized industrial hemp, and the Domestic Hemp Production Program established hemp as an agricultural crop that can be eligible for USDA farm programs if it complies with USDA regulations. However, the 2018 bill did not legalize CBD for internal and medical uses, or synthetics like THC-O, which no longer fit the legal definition of hemp.

The industry has taken advantage of this confusion and created other products, such as delta-8 THC, HHC, and hemp-derived Delta-9 THC. As the new farm bill is constructed, it is expected that new policies will be put in place to clarify the legal status of hemp, including CBD and other cannabinoids, and to address any other issues created by the 2018 Farm Bill.

Once we will see what is the new legality of hemp-derived psychoactive products, we will see what products are going to be legally available in 2024.

VII. Hemp vs Cannabis

As we have seen, the legality of these psychoactive products is mostly determined by the source of the compounds and not by its psychoactive abilities. As both products can be made from either cannabis or hemp, it might help to stop and see the key differences between the two.

Hemp and cannabis are two varieties of the Cannabis plant, but they differ in their chemical composition, physical characteristics, and uses. The main differences between hemp and cannabis are:

  1. Chemical Composition: Hemp and cannabis contain different levels of the cannabinoids THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol), which are the two main active compounds found in the Cannabis plant. Hemp contains very low levels of THC, which farmers are trying to be less than 0.3%, while cannabis can contain much higher levels of THC, up to 30% or more. CBD levels can also differ between the two plants.
  2. Physical Characteristics: Hemp and cannabis also have different physical characteristics. Hemp plants are tall, narrow, and have fewer branches, while cannabis plants are shorter and bushier with more branches and leaves. Hemp also has thinner leaves and can grow in a wider range of climates than cannabis.
  3. Uses: Hemp and cannabis have different uses. Hemp was always grown for industrial purposes such as making paper, textiles, and building materials, as well as for its seeds, which are used in food and beauty products. Hemp is an amazing plant with many potential uses, such as Hemp plastic for example, with over 50,000 when last counted. CBD can also be extracted from hemp and used for medicinal purposes. Cannabis, on the other hand, is primarily grown for its psychoactive effects and is used for recreational and medicinal purposes.

In summary, the main differences between hemp and cannabis are their chemical composition, physical characteristics, and uses. Hemp contains very low levels of THC and is often grown for industrial purposes, while cannabis contains higher levels of THC and is used for its psychoactive effects.

VIII. Conclusion

In conclusion, Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC are two different cannabinoids with distinct chemical structures, uses, medical benefts and psychoactive effects. While Delta-8 THC is a newer and less studied compound, it has been usually reported to have a milder psychoactive effect than Delta-9 THC and may be a good option for those who are looking for a more relaxing and less potent cannabis experience. Delta-9 THC, on the other hand, is the more widely known and widely used compound, and has been studied more extensively for its potential medical benefits.

It’s important to note that both Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC can have side effects, and their use should be approached with caution. As with any cannabis product, it’s important to ‘start low and grow slow’ to find the right level of effect. That way you wll also avoid from wating medicine… It’s also important to purchase products from reputable sources and to ensure that they have been third-party tested for purity and potency.

Ultimately, the choice between Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC depends on your individual needs and preferences. By understanding the differences between these two compounds, you can make an informed decision and choose the product that is right for you.

DEA Rules Delta-8 And Delta-9 THCO Are Controlled Substances

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) ruled earlier this week that the cannabinoids delta-8 THCO and delta-9 THCO are controlled substances that are illegal under federal law, even if they’re synthesized from legal hemp. The two cannabinoids, which don’t occur naturally but can be synthesized from hemp, have become popular in some markets across the country, particularly in states that haven’t yet legalized adult-use cannabis. 

The 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp and products derived from it, leading to a significant increase in the cultivation of the crop as farmers and processors sought to take advantage of consumer interest in CBD. Since then, products made with the novel cannabinoid delta-8 THC, which naturally occurs in cannabis in trace amounts and can be synthesized in large quantities from CBD, have also become popular. Last year a federal court ruled that delta-8 THC is legal when derived from hemp. Products containing the intoxicating cannabinoid have become popular from coast to coast, with availability in specialty shops, convenience stores and gas stations, among other retailers.

In 2022, attorney Rod Kight sent a letter to the DEA inquiring about the legal status of delta-8 THCO and delta-9 THCO, according to a report from Marijuana Moment. After he repeated the request earlier this month, the DEA sent a response letter to Kight on February 13, saying that the two cannabinoids “do not occur naturally in the cannabis plant and can only be obtained synthetically, and therefore do not fall under the definition of hemp.”

In the letter, Terrence L. Boos, the chief of the DEA’s Drug & Chemical Evaluation Section of the Diversion Control Division, wrote that “delta-9-THCO and delta-8-THCO are tetrahydrocannabinols having similar chemical structures and pharmacological activities to those contained in the cannabis plant. Thus, delta-9-THCO and delta-8-THCO meet the definition of “tetrahydrocannabinols,” and they (and products containing delta-9-THCO and delta-8- THCO) are controlled in schedule I” of the federal Controlled Substances Act.

In a blog post about the letter from the DEA, Kight wrote “although I don’t always agree with the DEA’s view on cannabis matters, I agree with this opinion and, frankly, am not surprised. This is what I’ve been saying for a while. I’ve been concerned about the proliferation of THC acetate ester (THCO) for a while. It has always been my view that THCO is a controlled substance under federal law. Although it can be made from cannabinoids from hemp, THCO isn’t naturally expressed by the hemp plant. It’s a laboratory creation that doesn’t occur in nature, at least not from the hemp plant.”

Shawn Hauser, a partner at the cannabis and psychedelics law firm Vicente Sederberg LLP, says that the DEA’s ruling doesn’t impact the regulated cannabis industry because of the plant’s continued illegality under federal law. The determination could, however, lead states to only allow synthetic cannabinoids under cannabis regulatory regimes rather than permitting them under hemp regulations. 

Definition Required Around Term “Synthetic” Cannabinoid

The determination is also significant because while the DEA has been clear in its Interim Final Rule implementing the 2018 Farm Bill that the agency doesn’t consider “synthetic” hemp products to be legal hemp and were therefore federally illegal controlled substances, it didn’t define the term “synthetic” as the term is applied to cannabinoids. Hauser notes that without further clarification or enforcement action, the Interim Final Rule led to confusion among the industry and consumers about the legality of novel cannabinoids that don’t occur naturally in the hemp plant.

“This federal ambiguity and a growing and innovating hemp market resulted in states taking varying approaches as to how they define and regulate ‘synthetic’ cannabinoids, and substantial confusion for industry, consumers and regulators as to the legality and safety of certain products,” Hauser says. “While this provides some long-overdue clarity as to the illegality of certain cannabinoids not naturally occurring in the plant under the Controlled Substances Act, this determination underscores the mess the DEA and FDA have created in failing to appropriately regulate both synthetic and natural cannabinoids to ensure consumer safety.”

Advocates contend that consumer and producer confusion about the legality of novel cannabinoids could be eliminated with the federal legalization of marijuana. Once prohibition is lifted and natural cannabinoids are available to the public, demand for intoxicating novel cannabinoids would likely dry up.

“Whether they’re synthetic or naturally occurring, psychoactive cannabinoids need to be regulated responsibly to protect public health and safety,” Aaron Smith, CEO of the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA), said in a statement. “The only way to successfully achieve that end is to finally end national prohibition, enact sensible regulations at the federal level and allow state cannabis laws continue to work across the country.”
