Hemp organizations divided on delta-8 THC
Some U.S. trade groups are split on whether delta-8 THC should be marketed in hemp products.
The 2018 Farm Bill signed by former President Donald Trump legalized all hemp-derived cannabinoids, including delta-8 THC, according to the Hemp Industries Association (HIA).
In a June 22 press release citing a legal opinion drafted by its attorneys, the trade group called for a regulatory framework grounded in science that would prioritize consumer safety.
“Businesses, farmers and consumers all deserve regulations that support the exploration of the hemp plant’s full potential,” said Jody McGinness, executive director of HIA, in the news release. “This isn’t just about one minor cannabinoid—the list [of cannabinoids] is over a hundred already and growing.”
