Arkansas Vs US Over Delta-8

Arkansas recently passed legislation to ban cannabis compound delta-8, and other compounds; even when derived from hemp. This led to controversy due to the 2018 Farm Bill, which now involves federal courts. Did Arkansas go too far by including compounds derived from hemp? Read on for more info on this story.

Arkansas ban on hemp-derived delta-8

The current controversy in Arkansas stems from a bill (Act 629) that was signed by Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders on April 11th of this year. The law is aimed at taming the growing illicit cannabinoids market; by instituting a ban on the production, sale, possession, and transfer of any products with compounds like delta-8, delta-9, delta-10, and so on. The state rescheduled these compounds to Schedule IV, which is the same for standard cannabis. Basically the ban is on anything potentially intoxicating.

According to the legislators who supported the legislation, the ban is necessary because of unregulated stores that sell unregulated products, without checking IDs. There is a logic point, of course; that these stores already function outside of regulation, so instituting regulation isn’t likely to help. I suppose it gives backing for raids, which must be the primary reason for passing such legislation anywhere it does pass…as otherwise it would be expecting non tax-paying businesses, to care about something they don’t care about.

Regardless of the missed logic, the law passed, was signed by the governor in April, and set to go into effect on August 1st. A day before it was scheduled to do so, four lawsuits dropped on the state, by hemp product makers. The four producers are: Bio Gen, out of Fayetteville, Arkansas; Greenbrier, Arkansas’s Drippers Vape & Hemp Relief; Hometown Hero CBD from Austin, Texas; and Smoker Friendly out of Boulder, Colorado.

Arkansas is not a recreational cannabis state

The lawsuits claim that Arkansas’s Act 629, is in violation of the 2018 US Farm Bill, aka the Federal Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018; which legalized industrial hemp, and gave it a new definition that legally separates it from marijuana. The plaintiffs also argue that the law gets in the way of their industry and livelihood, and that it’s in violation of the U.S. Constitution’s commerce and supremacy clauses.

The latter is particularly important as it concerns protections for interstate commerce, and those tasked with bringing products over state lines. This law, according to plaintiff attorney Abtin Mehdizadegan, can now mean a person can face “criminal sanction for products now deemed illegal despite what the federal law says,” according to a thv11 article.

Arkansas defense for delta-8 ban

The 2018 US Farm Bill is a piece of federal legislation that legalized the production, sale, possession, and use of hemp products. It does not legalize any specific hemp or hemp-derived products for medical or other therapeutic use, but it doesn’t specifically disallow them either, creating a little gray area. Add onto that, that most products like delta-8 require some amount of synthetic processing, and the reality becomes that it’s not exactly a legal market.

Having said that, this is not Arkansas’s excuse exactly. The ban is not specifically about synthetics, though the topic is mentioned. Griffin stated “Arkansas recognizes that industrial hemp is a valuable commodity when cultivated as intended. Act 629 does not stifle such production, and instead, protects Arkansas from the adulterated products that result from chemical synthesis.”

The problem with what Arkansas did, is that it went beyond synthetics. It’s one thing to ban the compounds if they come from a marijuana plant, or to tighten the restriction on synthetic processes. It’s even within the limits of legality to really go hard on the .3% THC separating line. But what Arkansas did, is write off tons of products, that if made the correct way, are legal according to US government law. Or at the very least, not illegal. However, since the US government didn’t officially legalize specific products; this case has the potential to put the federal government in quite an odd position.

Arkansas’s Attorney General possibly dug the state in deeper, by actually using the line that the ban should stay, because it was instituted by the state, and that state law wins out over federal law. I repeat that this argument was put forth by Attorney General Tim Griffin in court, according to MJBizDaily.

Griffins is referring to the idea that if something isn’t constitutionally clear, that it can go in either direction; but at no point has this ever meant that a state automatically wins over the federal body. State cannabis legalization measures are based on the lack of constitutional finality on the subject; they did not simply go through because they trump federal policy.

On August 8th, Griffin asked U.S. District Court Judge Billy Roy Wilson to dismiss the lawsuit, in which he made a cheap shot at the plaintiffs for not being of decent standing, and said they didn’t show irreversible harm from the law (which is too newly enacted for such proofs). The case was not dropped; and currently no hearings are scheduled. One could ask what Griffin is really after in this, and what he thinks will really happen. So far, he’s trying to argue that states rights should override federal laws, and he’s been wildly insulting to the plaintiffs in the case.

The only thing Arkansas has to go on for this law, is a stated fear of children getting high. This excuse is made all the time, even while beer cans continue to look like soda, and are sold everywhere. No one dies from cannabis products, with the exception of a few cases where bad additives were used. People do die from opioids, and guess what looks like a little piece of candy… a cute little yellow pill. That the new Arkansas bill says there should be a state of emergency over cannabis products, is an insult to those dealing with real drug danger; like opioids, or alcohol, or cigarette damage.

The case against Arkansas

The case against Arkansas regarding the delta-8 ban, involves several companies, who are together now suing the state. This creates an interesting conundrum for the US government, which they are appealing to. If the plaintiffs get a positive ruling by the court, it would make a ruling on overall legality of certain cannabis products, at least to a degree. This also happened recently when a federal court validated delta-8 products as having a valid trademark, something that an illegal product can’t have.

The federal government has three options. It can uphold its own laws which legalized hemp and hemp-derived compounds. This would work to legalize delta-8 THC, and the other cannabinoids, so long as requirements like not being synthetic, are met. Or, it has the choice of backing Arkansas, in which case it undermines its own laws. Last, it can drop the case, and make no judgement at all; although this too makes a statement in that Arkansas is specifically touting its supremacy over federal law. Really, its very much a catch-22 for the feds.

Arkansas is not the first state to ban compounds like delta-8 THC. Several states have moved to do such things, some with general bans on cannabis in general, and some that have legal markets. Perhaps the biggest issue with what Arkansas did, is that it made the ban without a stipulation for synthetic processing. It just went ahead and banned any of these compounds if they come from hemp, with little-to-no thought about the 2018 Farm Bill, and what it allows.

Maybe this case is just a right place at the right time situation. And maybe it goes to show that how a state writes its legislation is important. Overstepping happens, even with legislators trained on writing laws. That, and ego gets involved. Regardless of whether Griffin is agreed with or not on certain points, he was divisive and unnecessarily mean about the plaintiffs in the case; and that is a highly unprofessional, ego-motivated move. And that doesn’t say much for Arkansas right now.


This is certainly a case to watch, because it’s one of those cases that comes along at the right time. The federal government must now make a decision regarding the validity of the Arkansas ban on cannabinoids like delta-8. And in doing so, that decision might force a legal reckoning for certain products. Even throwing out the case makes a statement at this point, as it makes it look like the federal government can’t back up its own laws.

As a final note, I cannot find so much as one place where it says the federal court this case is filed in. This is a bit odd as all articles thus far speak of a federal case, yet there is not one document related. Perhaps the case is private. I note here that I don’t like situations where I’m passing on information that I cannot verify.

Tennessee Governor Signs Bill to Regulate Delta-8 THC

While medical and adult-use cannabis remain illegal in Tennessee, it’s pretty easy to find hemp-derived delta-8 THC products that are marketed as psychoactive including vape carts and dabs. But a new bill will regulate delta-8 THC products for adults 21 and over with testing and tax requirements.

State House Majority Leader William Lamberth (R-Portland) and Sen. Richard Briggs, (R-Knoxville) introduced a bill on Jan. 25 to regulate products containing hemp-derived cannabinoids, such as delta-8 and delta-10 THC, the second time such a bill was introduced.

Gov. Bill Lee (R-Tennessee) signed the bill to regulate delta-8 THC products in a similar manner to cannabis products. Senate Bill 0378 and its companion bill in the lower chamber House Bill 0403 will implement a tax and regulate cannabinoids derived from hemp via what some describe as synthetic processes. 

The bill will ensure that delta-8 THC products and other hemp-derived products are inspected by the Department of Agriculture.

While in the wild, cannabis has trace levels of delta-8 THC, in order to get high from the compound, “high levels of delta-8 THC are produced artificially by chemically converting CBD or delta-9 THC through a process known as isomerization,” NORML’s Dale Gieringer explains

Often the concern is potentially dangerous residuals that could be avoided if the products are regulated in a similar manner as products made with cannabis-derived cannabinoids.

“Delta-8’s been completely unregulated up to this point, and what the bill is trying to do is trying to assure the public and the consumer that the product they’re buying is what it says it is, that it doesn’t have contaminants,” Sen. Briggs said. “We’re not going to sell it to people under 21 years of age.”

“We started off to where we have one side that says, ‘Let’s do nothing.’ You have the other side that says to ban it,” Sen. Briggs said. “By working together, we were able to meet in the middle.”

Brigg’s co-sponsor simply wanted delta-8 THC products to be out of reach for minors.

“Delta-8 is a legal substance that can be sold and packaged in the form of candy or gummies; it often has a very high concentration of THC,” Rep. Lamberth stated. “There are no regulations and no legitimate way for anyone to know exactly what they are buying. Nothing in our current law prohibits a child from purchasing delta-8.”

New Rules for Hemp-Derived Cannabinoids in Tennessee

The bill will ban the sale of hemp-derived cannabinoid products to people under the age of 21; add a 5% additional sales tax to any product sold at a store; and create a licensing, quality testing, regulatory, and enforcement process through the Tennessee Department of Agriculture.

The bill will establish regulations to ensure inspection and packaging requirements. Companies will be subject to testing from a third-party lab and be required to put their product in child-resistant packaging.

“Basic food-grade things,” Devin Aracena, co-founder and CEO of CANVAST Supply Co., told WKRN. “The same standard you would want to see your packaged food in a grocery store be held to, we’re going to hold these products to it, as well.”

Some hemp sellers in the state support the new law.

Aracena joined forces with Cultivate Tennessee, a coalition of cannabis and hemp-promoting businesses and professionals, to help draft the legislation.

Tennessee House Rep. G.A. Hardaway is a sponsor of the bill on the House side, and told ABC 24 that this is what hemp companies need to do if they want to be taken seriously.

“This gives us a chance to take a serious approach to hemp and CBD oil, and in doing so, to kind of get our foot in the door to start a real discussion—[an] intelligent discussion—about marijuana,” Hardaway said.

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.

Arkansas Bill Seeks Ban on Delta-8, Other Hemp Products

One Arkansas lawmaker wants to ban the hemp products that have taken over shelves at gas stations and convenience stores.

Republican state Sen. Tyler Dees introduced a bill last week that would ban the likes of Delta-8, Delta-9 and Delta-10 –– legal, but under-regulated compounds that have been known to produce a high similar to that of cannabis. 

“It’s because of an accessibility issue where you can walk into a regular gas station and purchase this product as if you’re purchasing Skittles or any other candy,” Dees told local news station THV11.

Hemp-derived products have become ubiquitous in recent years, particularly following Congress’ passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized industrial hemp production.

But critics have lamented that many of those hemp products are subject to little, if any, regulation, posing risks to consumers who believe what they’re consuming to be mostly harmless.

Dees claimed to the station that poison control “is being contacted of cases where kids are, are digesting products that are causing harm to them.”

THV11 followed up with the state’s poison control, which “said that while there are no specific numbers when it comes to Delta 8 because the data didn’t start being collected until January 2021, they have been seeing an increase in kids being exposed to THC products.”

“Any THC-containing product is potentially harmful. Whether or not it’s Delta 8 or Delta 9,” Ari Filip, the medical director for Arkansas Poison Control Center, told the station. “We worry about this having psychoactive effects so it should be kept away, locked inaccessible to children.”

Arkansas voters rejected a proposal at the ballot last November that would have legalized recreational cannabis in the state.

The state’s Republican governor, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was elected in the November election, voted against the proposal.

“I don’t think that with the drug epidemic that we have across this state, frankly across the country, that adding and giving more access to that does anything to benefit Arkansas, so I certainly wouldn’t be supportive of that,” Huckabee Sanders, a former press secretary for Donald Trump, said in October

Her father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, has also spoken ill of the cannabis industry.

In a video last fall urging voters to reject the legalization measure, Huckabee said that “you aren’t the one who is going to be making the money, drug cartels will.”

“And if you are one of those people that can sell the drug, maybe you’ll make a buck off of the gullible people who will somehow convince themselves this is absolutely harmless,” the former governor added.

Medical cannabis is legal in Arkansas, however, and a co-sponsor of the bill to ban Delta-8 and other hemp products, state Sen. Jonathan Dismang, insisted that the measure would not affect that program.

“I mean, you have to have your card and there are benefits that are, you know, for those patients, this isn’t about that,” Dismang told THV11. “I mean, a high school kid right now can go purchase. Again, I think that’s wrong.”

Arkansas legalized medical cannabis in 2016, when a majority of voters approved an amendment authorizing the treatment. 

Per the state’s Department of Health, patients with the following conditions may qualify for a medical cannabis prescription: “Cancer; Glaucoma; Positive status for human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome; Hepatitis C; Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; Tourette’s syndrome; Crohn’s disease; Ulcerative colitis; Post-traumatic stress disorder; Severe arthritis; Fibromyalgia; Alzheimer’s disease; Cachexia or wasting syndrome; Peripheral neuropathy; Intractable pain which is pain that has not responded to ordinary medications, treatment, or surgical measures for more than six (6) months; Severe nausea; Seizures including without limitation those characteristic of epilepsy; Severe and persistent muscle spasms including without limitation those characteristic of multiple sclerosis; and any other medical condition or its treatment approved by the Department of Health.”

DEA Reiterates That Synthetic Cannabinoids Are Illegal

It’s been an ongoing battle for a couple years now, with one side (the industry) claiming synthetic (hemp-derived) cannabinoids are legal, and the other (the government) saying they are not. Now, we have a little more clarity on the legal front, which backs up what is consistently said. The DEA recently made a statement that synthetic cannabinoids are illegal, even if hemp-derived.

What are synthetic cannabinoids?

Synthetic cannabinoids can be looked at two ways, and its up for debate how illegal they are. One is that they’re compounds that never existed in nature, and were just made in a lab. When we think of the word ‘synthetic’, that’s the general thought. But there’s another way to see synthetics. If the parts to build something are extracted from a plant, but then go through some sort of synthetic processing, or are put together with other parts that are synthetic; can the product be considered natural? Unfortunately, the US rarely regulates the term.

Truth is, there isn’t a ‘standard’ definition for ‘synthetic cannabinoid.’ Nor, for ‘natural’. Does it mean the whole thing is synthetic? Does it mean part of it is synthetic? Does it mean that at some stage synthetic processing is used? I don’t know because no one does. Far as I can tell, if comparing it to where we do have regulation, like ‘organic‘ regulation, or ISO regulation (International Organization for Standardization), for food or cosmetics, once something unnatural is involved (or involved past a point), it changes the definition.

Right now, the best I can say is that a synthetic cannabinoid relates to any cannabinoid with some amount of synthetic parts or processing, regardless of whether its capable of showing up in nature on its own; but I’m not the authority. Sure, something like delta-8 is naturally-occurring, but not in high enough amounts to extract for product production. It therefore requires synthetic processing for pretty much anything sold. Does it matter if it shows up in nature if we’re using a synthetic version?

Cool to have you with us. We’ve got the Cannadelics Weekly Newsletter to get you email updates; and which comes with loads of promos for cannabis buds, vapes and related equipment, edibles, smoking paraphernalia, cannabinoid compounds (HHC, delta-8), and too much more. Head our way for all your cannabis-related shopping!

When it comes to the cannabinoid industry, this becomes problematic due to the definition of hemp; a definition that seems to stipulate any product must come from the plant directly, to be legal. As only ‘hemp’ by definition was legalized, anything that doesn’t fit into the definition, is not considered ‘hemp’, which implies illegality. What about products for cosmetics, food, medication, or treatment of any kind? FDA maintains control, so trying to sort out a hemp definition, or a synthetics definition, doesn’t even matter.

Recent DEA announcement

The back and forth is a little silly, although, to be fair, none of these compounds seem to pose much threat (the government is cool with opioids, remember). Their main ruling-out is more likely a desire to cut into a black market that the government doesn’t profit from, than the oft-touted government line that they’re dangerous (I mean, lowering guidelines for prescribing opioid medications? Come on…)

Are these synthetic cannabinoids a problem? It’s a dirty market sure, but as very few health issues seem to relate to compounds, and instead have to do with things like additives (which can be regulated out to produce cleaner products), the government line about danger is a bit misplaced. Perhaps just a move of subterfuge to get eyes away from the government’s own complicity in the opioid issue, which its involved in by continuing to allow them through regulation. But this article isn’t about whether we agree, its about the fact the government did make clear its position, even if we don’t agree.

Recently the government made an action to back up what it already said time and time again. On February 13th of this year, as reported by Marijuana Moment, the DEA zeroed in specifically on delta-8 THC-O and delta-9 THC-O, along with other synthetic cannabinoids, reminding that they’re illegal. The DEA says both these compound fail to meet the definition of hemp, and are therefore Schedule I controlled substances.

The DEA didn’t make a formal announcement. It did what it, and other government agencies, have done a couple times before; and simply replied to a person/organization that asked a question. In all cases, the answer was then posted as if to say the government organization had made a formal announcement, which it did not. In this case, the person asking the question was attorney Rod Kight, who wrote to the DEA last year about delta-8 THC-O and delta-9 THC-O legality, with a recent follow-up in 2023.

The DEA finally answered via letter by Chief of DEA Drug & Chemical Evaluation Section, Terrence L. Boos, on February 13th. It stated “Delta-9-THCO and delta-8-THCO are tetrahydrocannabinols having similar chemical structures and pharmacological activities to those contained in the cannabis plant.” And that they “do not occur naturally in the cannabis plant and can only be obtained synthetically, and therefore do not fall under the definition of hemp.”

Extracts made into synthetic cannabinoids, are illegal

Following this, on his blog post, Kight stated: “Although I do not always agree with the DEA’s view on cannabis matters, I agree with this opinion and, frankly, am not surprised. This is what I have been saying for a while.” He continued, “I have 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 is not naturally expressed by the hemp plant. It is a laboratory creation that does not occur in nature, at least not from the hemp plant.”

Did anything new happen? Nope. Did the DEA make a formal announcement? Nope. Did it say anything it hasn’t said before? Nope. While the DEA itself is pretty bad at responding to many things related to drugs, even to the point of getting sued (lets remember it took Kight a year to get a response), it does seem that sometimes the issue is not liking the answer, more than not getting one.

When else did a government response make headlines as an announcement?

Twice in 2021, for two different reasons. One was about the legal nature of synthetic delta-8 THC (which is pretty much any delta-8 used in products), and CBD, which is often assumed to have a greater level of legality than it actually does.

In terms of delta-8 THC, in September, 2021, the Alabama Board of Pharmacy via Donna C. Yeatman, R.Ph., the executive secretary, requested an answer from the DEA about the legality of delta-8, since there was so much contention on the subject in the media. The DEA didn’t say anything new, just repeated what it has before. It relayed once again that any synthetic does not fit under the definition of hemp.

Yeatman’s original letter was dated August 19th, 2021, and the response was dated September 15th, 2021. The response brought Yeatman through a logical process, starting with “D8-THC is a tetrahydrocannabinol substance contained in the plant Cannabis sativa L. and also can be produced synthetically from non-cannabis materials.” Then after explaining THCs, and their place in Schedule I, it continued, “Thus, D8-THC synthetically produced from non-cannabis materials is controlled under the CSA as a “tetrahydrocannabinol.””

Realistically, if delta-8 could be appropriately sourced to not require synthetic processing, then it would fit the farm bill definition of hemp. But we know delta-8 only exists in minuscule amounts, and requires the kind of processing for product production, that takes it away from this definition. This doesn’t mean that it’s not ‘hemp-derived’, but that term doesn’t rule out synthetics at all. Of course, should the government ever want to clearly define what constitutes ‘synthetic’ when it comes to cannabinoids, we could have fewer of these arguments.

'Hemp-derived' implies synthetic cannabinoids
‘Hemp-derived’ implies synthetic cannabinoids

Another government response statement about CBD

The second example of a letter response from a government agency detailing an already stated policy, had to do with CBD and how it can be used. It happened in regards to Steve Brown, of the Minnesota Cannabis Association board, and a conversation about tinctures and processing facilities that happened in a meeting. Said Brown, “They stated later in the meeting that tinctures are illegal… Then this morning I received information from the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy, sent by a colleague.”

What did it say? It contained a responses by the US’s Department of Agriculture via a representative, saying “The problem here is some of the products you’re mentioning here, Steven, would not be legal food by our definition… The reason for that is all these other cannabinoid products are governed by the Board of Pharmacy.”

Why does this matter? Because a ‘medicine’ (anything to treat something, including supplements), a food product, and a cosmetic, all must get approval by the FDA. It gets worse in terms of ‘supplements.’ Once an FDA approved medication is there, any active ingredient used, is barred from advertisement as a nutritional supplement. Meaning since the FDA-approved a CBD medication, Epidiolex, its not legal to sell CBD for any kind of supplemental, or medical use. As in, its not legally cleared to be used for internal products, or to treat anything, or for cosmetics products, or for food products.

If you caught on, it means it doesn’t matter whether the DEA says its illegal or not. Not when it comes to any consumer products in the categories above. Since all that is regulated by the FDA, whether delta-9-THCO, delta-8-THCO, CBD, or any other synthetic cannabinoids are illegal in general, has no bearing on whether they’re legal in products. Which makes any product containing cannabis compounds, automatically illegal, whether synthetic or not. This is actually a statement I can make, because the FDA never regulated a consumer product for these uses with any cannabis compound; aside from pharmaceutical medications.

In all of these cases, the government agency didn’t make a statement to the press, but had the answer to their question promoted as an answer to the general question people fight over. And in all cases, all that was done, was to point out already existing information to the entities who were confused. Perhaps it would be better if the public understood the difference between general legality (DEA) and product legality (FDA) when it comes to cannabis.


This isn’t actually news, but it is interesting to see the confusion that continues on the topic. We might not agree with the DEA, USDA, or FDA on these matters, but there are answers already for much of it. Are synthetic cannabinoids illegal? Maybe. Probably. But while that answer is murkier due to missing and finite definitions, whether the products that involve these compounds are technically legal or not, is less debatable. Even if we don’t agree.

2023 Farm Bill Under Construction: What to Expect For Hemp

It’s that time again. The time for the federal government to put together another farm bill. The last one sure shook things up with its legalization of industrial hemp and derived products. But it also created many messes. Now with the new 2023 farm bill under construction, the big question is how it will affect the hemp industry.

What’s a farm bill?

What’s a farm bill? According to Congressional Research Services, it’s an “omnibus, multiyear law that governs an array of agricultural and food programs. It provides an opportunity for policymakers to comprehensively and periodically address agricultural and food issues.” It continues, “In addition to developing and enacting farm legislation, Congress is involved in overseeing its implementation. The farm bill typically is renewed about every five years.” As of yet, there have been 18 farm bills since they came into action in the 1930’s.

An omnibus bill is a bill that deals with an array of topics within one piece of legislation. Though it includes many varying and unrelated measures, the whole document gets passed by a single vote. These bills are often used to pass unpopular, and often completely unrelated, legislation that gets crammed in for whatever reason. A multiyear law implies that it sets policy for multiple years, and is only updated in that same time span. In this case, a new one comes about every five years.

In earlier years, the farm bill was more about supporting commodity programs related to specific crops like “corn, soybeans, wheat, cotton, rice, peanuts, dairy, and sugar.” Things expanded out in 1973 when a nutritional element was included, followed by other elements like horticulture and bio-energy, research, and rural development. Now it encompasses even more.

Some programs created by farm bills have no expiration date, and have permanent authority. This includes things like crop insurance. Such programs don’t need to be re-authorized per bill, like other programs, including the nutrition assistance program, and the farm commodity support program. Bills in need of re-authorization have a specific end date and expire.

The 2018 farm bill legalized industrial hemp

The last, and currently standing farm bill, is the 2018 farm bill – or The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, and it went into effect in December of that year. It expires this year.

Both the 2014 and 2018 farm bills deal with a certain amount of hemp legalization. In 2014, a hemp pilot program was established for research purposes, and ‘hemp’ was re-defined and separated from ‘marijuana’ with the following definition:

“The plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”

In 2018, hemp was legalized for industrial purposes. The bill established the Domestic Hemp Production Program which amended the 1946 Agricultural Marketing Act. With the legalization of plants under the above definition, “This established hemp as an agricultural crop eligible for U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) farm programs, if it is grown under license and complies with USDA regulations.”

The legalization of industrial hemp means that hemp can be grown and used for industrial purposes. However, industrial purposes don’t include anything medical, or for any use as a treatment, or for ingestion. While regulation of industrial hemp went to the USDA, all other hemp uses remain under FDA regulation. At one point this was further established by Minnesota as per a Department of Agriculture response to a query by a member of the Minnesota Cannabis Association board in regard to CBD tinctures.

CBD not legal for internal use under 2018 farm bill

The mess created by the 2018 farm bill

The 2018 farm bill never legalized CBD for the internal and medical uses its so often sold for today. Nor did it legalize synthetics like delta-10; as synthetics no longer fit under the definition of a plant, which is integral to the legal definition of hemp. It also didn’t allow for the rest of the cannabinoid market that popped up. But there seems to be mass confusion over why, despite the basic logic of what does and doesn’t fit a definition.

From delta-8 THC to HHC to THCO, producers have taken the confusion of the legalization, and run with it. One of the big misconceptions for the public, is that lesser occurring cannabinoids like delta-8 can’t be extracted directly from the cannabis plant in high enough amounts for product production. Not enough of it exists, plain and simple. As such, for product manufacturing, synthetic processing must be used, which takes these compounds out of the legal definition. If the compounds are extracted naturally, then they fit under ‘hemp’, but none outside of THC and CBD exist in large enough amounts.

What the industry relies on, is the federal government not doing much about it. Going after weed products is getting more unpopular, and it’s a costly process to root out such a massive industry. In light of recent pardons, and its own promise to re-regulate the plant, its not likely the US government will attempt this. Though Shopify dropped clients selling these products (likely at the behest of the US government), stopping sales has proven difficult. In fact, it seems more and more that the best way to get rid of the cannabinoids market, is to offer the real product.

Is the cannabinoid market really that bad though? As the only reported problems are associated with additives, no its not technically a big problem for the health and well-being of the population. Sure, its shady, complete with bogus lab testing; but when you consider the number of overdose deaths that come from legal and government-regulated drugs like opioids, and the overall deaths when including smoking and alcohol, its hard to find a reason to have an issue with the cannabinoids market.

Perhaps the worst we’ve seen, is that it breaks trademark law, which is unfair to established brands; and dangerous in terms of putting cannabis products in packaging recognized by children as a specifically known candy. And sure, without regulation we don’t know how clean the products are. But the lack of a direct death toll from cannabinoids in general, makes the industry much more innocuous than the government lets on.

The inconsistency of feelings toward the cannabinoid industry has led multiple states to enact their own legislation, either regulating the compounds or banning them. And the entirety of the industry, including CBD, is now a big topic going into the 2023 farm bill.

How will new farm bill affect cannabinoids like delta-8

What should we expect from 2023 farm bill for hemp and cannabinoids?

Like any bill, the farm bill takes some time to put together. It incorporates a wide range of subjects under the general heading of agriculture (along with whatever else gets shoved in), and requires months of writing, and arguing, and getting mad at one another, as bills tend to do. The 2023 farm bill is likely to include several provisions that relate to hemp and cannabinoids.

  • For one thing, the current dividing line between hemp and marijuana, is .3% THC. The 2023 farm bill may increase the allowable THC amount to 1%.
  • The current farm bill actually only deals with cultivation. As during product production, the THC can go above the boundary line, its thought that a provision might be included to allow higher THC amounts in what are called “work-in-progress” products, or products in the interim-processing phase when THC amounts might cross the line temporarily.
  • The 2023 farm bill may also erase the need for DEA lab testing; a provision instituted for the asinine sounding reason that if THC goes over .3%, then it becomes illegal to have…apparently even for a testing facility (you do the math on that one). Obviously it makes more sense to use other testing facilities to promote testing availability.
  • It also might take off the ban on obtaining a hemp license that those with drug convictions are subject to.
  • And last but not least, it may seek to officially close the loophole – perceived or real – that drives the confusion (and industry) of hemp-derived cannabinoid products.

In 2022, a federal appeals court (The Ninth Circuit panel in San Francisco) made a ruling on trademark infringement specifically, saying one company accusing another of selling counterfeit versions, was correct in its accusation. The product in question was a delta-8 THC vape cart. As you can’t trademark an illegal product, this ruling worked to legitimize the delta-8 industry; but never commented on basic product legality requirements, or issues of synthetics.

Different congressional bills have been introduced to close these gaps with specifics, but none passed yet. Its thought that there are a couple which have a chance of being included in the upcoming farm bill. HR 841 and S. 1698, the “Hemp and Hemp-Derived CBD Consumer Protection and Market Stabilization Act of 2021” and “Hemp Access and Consumer Safety Act”, respectively, deal with the allowance of CBD and other cannabinoids in dietary supplements and food.

Other laws to come up, and which could be at least partially included, include H.R. 6134 which seeks to establish safety standards and labeling requirements for cannabinoid products; and H.R. 6645 which seeks to attack the issue of synthetics by officially excluding synthetic derivatives.

Live resin is a type of cannabis extract that is made using fresh, frozen cannabis plants rather than dried and cured buds.

The resulting extract has a distinct, terpene-rich flavor and aroma, and is often used in vaporizers, as well as for making edibles and other cannabis products.

While many disposables use terpenes and some have a great aroma, live resin vape disposables and carts have a distinct flavor which you could almost smell the plant! Choose this product if you want to feel the true flavors of this amazing plant. Take advantage of our ‘d’Deal of the day’ and get the high-potency ‘Liquid Diamonds’ vapes for an additional 25% discount, using the Delta25 coupon code.

What is THC-X?

THC-X is an invented blend of high-potency cannabinoids that goes into various products in addition to the specified cannabinoids listed. Whenever you see THC-X remember it is not a new cannabinoid but an in-house blend that the company has mixed and labeled THC-X. While many companies might use this term ‘THC-X’, each company has its own blend which is unique and you won’t find that formula anywhere else!

What is THC-B?

THC-B AKA Tetrahydrocannabutol, is a psychoactive cannabinoid not so different than Delta-9 THC, the ‘regular’ THC we all know from Cannabis. There are many reports on whether it is stronget or weaker than Delta-9, but as everything is so new, we will relate to it as close relative, until we know better. All that said, as with each new cannabinoid introduced, you should should always start low and grow slow, until you learn how exactly this specific cannabinoid affects you.

What is THCjd?

Another interestin cannabinoid, which we see in several products is Tetrahydrocannabioctyl (THCjd). Some companies claim that THCjd is up to 19 times more potent than Delta-9 THC. While this might be true, more studies are needed to verify this strong claim. As with THC-B (above) you should take it easy with these new high-potency cannabinoids, and slow down your ‘puffs’ until you find your perfect spot.

What is PHC?

PHC is another new cannabinoid, which is very similar to Delta 11. It is claimed that the psychoactive effects from these two cannabinoids have the same intense like the ones coming from edibles, even when they are inhaled, vaped or smoked! That is a very strong claim which will be tested in the next few months. However, if it’s true, it means it is a very high-potency product!

What is Delta 10 THC?

Delta 10 THC is another common cannabinoid extracted from Hemp. Unlike Delta 8, Delta 9 or HHC it is not such a common one to be used in products, but it has its advantages so we are starting to see it more and more in blends.

What are disposables or disposable vapes

Disposable vapes, AKA disposables, disposable e-cigarettes or dispos, are small, discreet electronic device that is used for vaping. Disposables usually consist of a battery, heating element, and a pre-filled cartridge with some e0liquid, such as live rosin liquid diaminds blend in this case. Disposables can be single used or frechargables.

Disposable vapes are very popular as they are discreet, very easy to use and convenient to travel with. The current 3g live resin disposables have a capacity of 3 grams, which is starting to become the new norm. That means you will be able to use for a long time until you run out of product.

What are live resin disposables

Like the name suggested, live resin disposables are filled with live resin extract. Live resin disposables are famous for their great taste and distinct, terpene-rich aroma. They have become very popular among cannabis users who are looking for these specific strong flavors.

What are the benefits of using disposables

There are several benefits of using disposable vapes, including: convenience, portability, cost-effective, variety, discreetness and trendiness.

It’s worth noting that disposable vapes are not sustainable option and are not freindly to the environment, as they are used once and then thrown away.

How should you store live rosin disposables

Disposable vapes should be stored in a cool, dry place to ensure that the extract does not degrade or evaporate. Extreme temperatures, such as high heat or cold, can cause the extract to lose its flavor and potency, and may also damage the battery or other components of the device.

In addition you should keep disposables away from direct sunlight.

When possible try to keep them in their original packaging until you are ready to use them, to protect the device from damage. Keep an eye for the expiration date, also specified on the package.

Unlike carts, disposables are not meant to be refilled or reused.

What are the environmental concerns with disposables

The environmental concerns with disposable vapes include: plastic waste, chemical waste and battery waste. Also currently there are limited recycling options, which is another big issue.

It’s important to be aware of these environmental concerns and to dispose the vapes properly. Some ways to reduce the environmental impact of disposables include: proper disposal and proper battery disposal.

What are the main differences between sativa, indica or hybrid disposables

The main differences between sativa, indica, and hybrid disposables are the effects they produce, which are determined by the strains of cannabis or the terpenes used.

Sativa disposable vapes are producing uplifting and energizing effects. They can provide a boost of creativity, focus and can be used to combat fatigue, depression, and anxiety.

Indica disposable are producing relaxing and sedative effects. They can provide a sense of calm, and can be used to combat insomnia, pain, and muscle tension.

Hybrid disposable can produce effects that are a combination of both sativa and indica strains. They often provide a balanced experience of both energy and relaxation.

Tennessee Bill Would Regulate the Sale of Delta-8 THC

Tennessee leaders are again putting forth a bill that would regulate hemp-derived cannabinoids like delta-8 and delta-10 THC, after a previous attempt failed last year. Some hemp advocates applauded the bill, while others would rather simply legalize cannabis, naturally rich in delta-9 THC.

State House Majority Leader William Lamberth (R-Portland) and Sen. Richard Briggs, (R-Knoxville) introduced a bill on Tuesday to regulate products containing hemp-derived cannabinoids, such as delta-8 and delta-10 THC—his second attempt to do so.

House Bill 403 would tax and regulate cannabinoids derived from hemp via what some describe as synthetic processes. Typically products with delta-8 THC are marketed as being somewhat psychoactive, with effects weaker but similar to delta-9 THC.

“Delta-8 is a legal substance that can be sold and packaged in the form of candy or gummies; it often has a very high concentration of THC,” Rep. Lamberth stated. “There are no regulations and no legitimate way for anyone to know exactly what they are buying. Nothing in our current law prohibits a child from purchasing delta-8.”

The bill would ban the sale of hemp-derived cannabinoid products to people under the age of 21; adds a 5% additional sales tax to any product sold at a store; and create a licensing, quality testing, regulatory and enforcement process through the Tennessee Department of Agriculture.

“We need to regulate this because the horse is out of the barn,” Sen. Briggs said. “This stuff is everywhere, and we can’t put that genie back in the bottle.”

What is Delta-8 THC?

The idea is that hemp-derived CBD can be converted to other compounds, frequently being marketed as psychoactive. This doesn’t mesh with the general U.S. definition of hemp, bred specifically to not be psychoactive.

Delta-8 THC occurs naturally, but only in trace amounts: According to Chemical & Engineering News, cannabis plants naturally contain just 0.1% delta-8 THC or less—though some plants contain as much as 1%. Jeffrey Raber, cofounder and CEO of the Werc Shop told C&E News that there isn’t enough delta-8 THC found naturally in hemp to be economical for extraction.

But hemp growers in the state are supportive of the bill despite some suspicion about emerging hemp-derived cannabinoids. “We support anything that doesn’t put burdensome regulations on the industry,” Kelley Hess, executive director of the Tennessee Growers Coalition, said.

While hemp growers may support delta-8 products, others do not.

Artists such as Margo Price support legalization, but don’t support hemp-derived cannabinoid products in Tennessee. Opponents don’t like the way certain cannabinoids are extracted from hemp, which usually means altering the CBD molecule, which is found in hemp in larger amounts, using natural solvents and acids.

Attempt to Regulate Delta-8 Last Year

While some states moved to restrict hemp-derived cannabinoids, such as Utah, Tennessee would be taking a much different approach by regulating it instead.

Rep. Lamberth sponsored an earlier attempt to regulate delta-8 THC and similar compounds. Some Tennessee lawmakers and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said that by regulating delta-8, the state would be legitimizing the industry. 

House Bill 1927, which was introduced previously, would regulate delta-8 by making it illegal in most cases outside trace-level concentrations. The bill was amended in April 2022 to be more specific to include other hemp-derived THCs such as delta-9 and 10 and the derivative hexahydrocannabinol (HHC), but exclude non-THC hemp cannabinoids such as CBD.

Tennessee is one of 11 non-green states that hasn’t legalized, regulated, or decriminalized cannabis in some form.

Delta-10 Gummies Benefits: How Long Until They Kick In?

It’s not magic nor mysticism — no, this new fantastical concoction that lets you do it all is something much more grounded. Dinner is made on time, the kids get picked up from school, and you get named employee of the month with a big promotion and a huge bonus. But what are delta-10 gummies benefits, and how long does it take delta-10 gummies to kick in? 

What Is Delta-10? 

Delta-10 is a minor cannabinoid found in small quantities in hemp plants. Because of this, it is difficult to mass produce this all-natural cannabinoid for the retail market. To help make the difference, manufacturers use a process that transforms cannabinoids like CBD into delta-10. Why? Over the past few years, an abundance of CBD biomass has left retailers looking for ways to earn back their investment. Thanks to the Farm Bill, which legalized hemp and its derivatives in 2018, those retailers can now turn that excess biomass into other cannabinoids such as delta-10. 

What is delta-10? Unlike the new wave of hemp-derived cannabinoids to hit the market in recent years, delta-10 is more than a buzz. It’s a functional cannabinoid that helps users complete tasks with a burst of focus and energy.

What Are the Benefits of Delta-10 Gummies? 

In addition to its slight psychotropic high, delta-10 is a hemp-based, federally legal compound that offers users more immediate and functional benefits. It’s a cannabinoid made for “getting things done.” And while it is available in many different product forms, including vape oils, edibles, carts, and pens, most consumers prefer delta-10 gummies. 

But how do the functional effects of delta-10 gummies benefit users overall? Let’s dig a little deeper and find out precisely what delta-10 is and how gummies benefit consumers. 

What Happens When Delta-10 Gummies Finally Kick In? 

So what are the benefits of delta-10 gummies? What happens when they finally kick in? Like most edible products, they have the benefits of being simple to consume — edible products like gummies go down easy and are ideal for new users. Moreover, where compounds like delta-8 and delta-9 offer consumers a mild-to-heavy high, delta-10 gives so much more. 

The benefits of delta-10 gummies include the following: 

  • Pain management 
  • Mood boost 
  • Creative Boost 
  • Energy 
  • Focus 
  • Mild, relaxing buzz 

Is Delta-10 THC Safe?

Delta-10 gummies are relatively safe and only known to cause mild side effects in users who take too much. Still, due to their energizing effects, it is recommended that consumers avoid too much stimulation and use these products with extra caution. With that understanding, several adverse effects are associated with delta-10, most of which can be controlled with some rest and by abstaining from further product use. Side effects are rare, occuring in very few users. When they happen, it is most likely due to misuse or overuse of the gummies. 

What are the possible side effects of delta-10 gummies? Take a look at the following list: 

  • Dry or Cotton Mouth 
  • Red Eyes 
  • Slight or Mild Headaches 
  • Lower Blood Pressure 
  • Anxiety 
  • Concentration Issues 
  • Problems with Orientation
  • Sleepiness 
  • Feeling Uncomfortable 
  • Excess Euphoria

Will Delta-10 Gummies Get Me High? 


Like most new wave compounds post-Farm Bill and cannabinoids from the past few years, delta-10 is psychoactive, with mild, buzz-inducing euphoria. While it’s more known for its energizing properties and ability to help users focus and find their creative center, delta-10 will get you high.

However, on a high note (pun intended), delta-10 doesn’t carry many of the adverse effects found with other THC products.


However, while they are federally legal, several local and state politicians across the country began a push to ban cannabinoids like delta-10. So, while most people can enjoy delta-10 gummies, a few folks can’t, including those in Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, Rhode Island, and Utah. It’s proof that the “Reefer Madness” days are still with us. 

Will Delta-10 Gummies Fail a Drug Test?


Bad news for everyone who loves delta-10 gummies: delta-10 will make you fail a drug test. Much like delta-8 THC, delta-10 is recognized as cannabis or THC on a standard urinalysis or saliva test. Both cannabinoids have similar chemical structures to delta-9 THC, making it difficult for these tests to tell the difference, even though delta-8 and -10 are federally legal.
