Achieving Legislation Through Your A.C.A.

Delta-8-THC (D8) production methods have become more widely known and accessible, supply has increased at an unbelievable rate, because of the increased availability throughout the United States.

May 19th, 2022 was a huge day, the Ninth Circuit affirmed that D8 and other cannabinoids qualify as legal products under the 2018 Farm Bill.

They conclude that the items in question contain compounds that “fit comfortably within the statutory definition of hemp,” as has been claimed by proponents since this issue was brought in front of the court.

The State of FloridaLeading The Way Providing Framework For (D8)

Florida is regulated & legal to manufacture, possess, distribute & sell retail.

Florida’s Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services monitors production of hemp, the department released this statement :

“Delta 8: At this time any hemp product intended for human or animal ingestion or inhalation which is sold in Florida must comply with all Florida statutes and rules. Any hemp or hemp extract products offered for sale or sold in Florida must comply with all labeling rules and have a certificate of analysis that shows a total THC (THCA x .8777 + THC Delta 9 = total THC) content of 0.3% or less. Any hemp or hemp extract product that does not comply with all statutes and rules is subject to enforcement and possible destruction by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.”

Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services - Florida

This certifies in the departments statement, that (D8) does not go against any Florida statutes & certifies the manufacture & distribution of (D8) is allowed in Florida.

And despite Florida’s past conservative legislative trends, public policy towards (D8) is progressive plus beneficial.

The regulatory framework structure for manufacturers & distributors to follow, Florida is enabling the industry to grow & evolve, all while ensuring safety to buyers by mandating certificates of analysis for every (D8) item sold.

Together We Are Stronger & Have A Larger Voice To Make Real Historic Changes

The future holds potential for solutions of legislative reform starting at the federal level.

Already with the Ninth Circuit’s recent decision, the federal government has explicitly detailed isomerization of CBD to obtain related cannabinoids is lawful under the 2018 Farm Bill, eliminating any confusion as to the legality of cannabinoids, like (D8).

Furthermore with this legislation, it gives the federal government the opportunity to introduce mandates for the manufacture, transport, & sale of all (D8) products, also establish requirements for certificates of analysis (COA), seed-to-sale tracking systems, & safety levels plus guidelines for contaminants & solvents.
