Delta 8 THC has recently hit the market with a boom and we are here to help out with any legality questions that you may have. First of all, Delta 8 THC is federally legal and legal in most states in the USA thanks to H.R. 2: The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the 2018 Farm Bill.

Delta 8 THC is LEGAL in Georgia.

The 2018 Farm Bill specifically made all derivatives, isomers, and cannabinoids in hemp legal, provided the final product has less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. For reference, delta 8 THC is an isomer of CBD, a derivative of hemp and CBD, a cannabinoid found in hemp, and is ultimately contained in our extracts with less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC.

The relevant language from the 2018 Farm Bill is listed below, along with links to the original text.
