Since the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill hemp products and its derivative cannabinoids like Delta-9 THC, have become legal if products contain less than .3% of THC on a dry weight basis.
We know all this jargon isn't exactly the sexiest way to talk about getting high, but you best believe LEUNE Gem Drops – which feature all-natural ingredients, and are infused with hemp derived THC, CBD, and CBG – will get you all up in your feels.
So you may be wondering...
What is Delta-9 THC, and how is it different from THC in marijuana?
- Delta-9 THC is a cannabinoid found in both hemp and marijuana plants. On a molecular level it's completely identical in both plants. The key difference lies in how the US government classifies it.
What are the potential benefits of hemp-derived Delta-9 THC?
- Like cannabis, research suggests hemp derived delta-9 THC has potential therapeutic benefits, including pain relief, anti-inflammatory effects, and possible anti-anxiety properties. Users also report mindful relaxation without the intense high associated with marijuana.
Is Delta-9 THC legal?
