Is Delta 9 Legal in Tennessee?
Before we dig into the legal aspects of Delta 9 gummies in Tennessee, let's define what they are. Delta-9 is one of the psychoactive compounds in cannabis known for its mind-altering effects.
Gummies are edibles infused with THC, making them a popular way to consume cannabis for recreational and medicinal purposes.
Source of THC
Addressing the common question if Delta 9 is legal in Tennessee, the answer is not straightforward. It depends on numerous specifications, such as the source of the D9 THC and its concentration.
In 2018, the federal government legalized hemp-derived D9 with less than 0.3% THC concentration. The bill allowed industries to use hemp-sourced THC for gummies under Federal law's protection if they meet the concentration.
Tennesse Passes Hemp Bill
Additionally, the state has laws regulating cannabis and its derivatives. Tennessee passed a bill in 2021 that legalized hemp-derived Delta 9 as long as it adheres to the specifications outlined.
This law indicates that weed gummies sourced from hemp, under the concentration limit, are legal to possess and consume in Tennessee.
