Texas Mulls A Delta-8 Ban That Smoke Shops Say Would Crush Business

HB 2593 is the first bill since the 70’s to reduce cannabis penalties

Mark Mavrikos set up shop in North Texas about three years ago with one main goal: selling CBD. He’s established himself in the area and now has two CBD American Shaman locations. One is in Richardson and the other is in Lake Highlands. Not long after that, he began hearing about Delta-8 THC.

Delta-8 is the compound’s less psychoactive, currently legal cousin to Delta-9. It can come in the form of hemp flower, vapes or edibles.

After doing a lot of vetting and hunting down quality product, Mavrikos introduced Delta-8 to his customers in February. “It’s been one of our top sellers for the past three months,” he said. “People come in to get CBD, but they’ll also get the Delta-8, and they’re using them in conjunction together. … So, you’re getting a little bit of benefit from both products.”
