Texas Hemp Industry Celebrates Signals Coming from DEA

Texas Hemp Industry Celebrates Signals Coming from DEA

The Texas hemp industry recently celebrated as signals from the Drug Enforcement Administration concluded that delta 8 is not a controlled substance. The federal agency reported to state regulators that only products containing more than 0.3 percent delta-9 are considered controlled.

Earlier this month a Texas judge blocked the State Department of Health Services from listing delta 8 as a schedule one controlled substance. The judge's ruling denoted the state did not adequately notify hemp retailers that the substance was moved to the list as of October.

Delta 8 has been sold in Texas by retailers who say it is legal as defined by the Farm Bill of 2018, which states the cannabinoid must be derived from the hemp and must not contain more than 0.3 percent delta-9 THC — the active ingredient in cannabis.

What is Hemp-derived Delta 8?

Delta 8 is a powerful cannabinoid native to the cannabis flower. Derivative of hemp and CBD, Delta 8 is the 'brother' of Delta-9 THC. Most Delta 8 users experience a mild psychoactive effect.

The potential benefits of Delta 8 based on current research:

1) reduces nausea

2) appetite-stimulant

3) pain reliever

4) reduce stress and anxiety

5) mood enhancer 

Scientifically speaking Delta 8 contains a double bond. The Delta 8 double bond is found at the eighth carbon atom in the chain and Delta 9 THC is one carbon atom later.
