Delta-8 THC Is Illegal, The Texas Department Of State Health Services Says

The entry for THC was changed to include isomers

Ever since the production of hemp was legalized on the federal level and in Texas, people have claimed that a grey area in the law allows them to sell and get high off of hemp-derived products such delta-8 THC. To the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), there’s no grey area. They say it’s all illegal.

The 2018 U.S. Farm Bill removed cannabis products containing less than 0.3% of THC from the Schedule I controlled substance list. A year later, Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law House Bill 1325, which legalized the growing of hemp that contains less than 0.3% delta-9 THC. But the state hadn’t said anything specifically about delta-8, which is less potent than delta-9, the chemical in marijuana chiefly responsible for getting users high.

Delta-8 is chemically similar to delta-9 THC but occurs naturally in plants in only small amounts. It can be derived chemically, however, from legal compounds found in hemp.
