There is no doubt the cannabis market has been flying in the last few years. At the same time, cannabis laws have been changing as if Belén was suddenly landing on our planet. Considering that, besides the federal laws, every US state has their own cannabis regulations, it is normal that most people are confused about the legal status of some cannabis-derived products.

Delta 10 is a novel cannabinoid that has really been exploding in popularity in north of Alabama, and throughout the rest of the United States. So it is in the habit of cannabis users and cannabis consumers to be inquisitive about their local cannabis regulations and laws, as nobody is willing to risk legal persecution or even some kind of headache for just buying or taking their medicine with them.

This is why it is important to know whether it is legal to have Delta 10 in your state or not. Besides, it is not a secret. People simply want to have as much information as possible on Delta 10, before even trying it. If

Key Takeaways

  • Delta 10 THC is legal in Alabama, aligning with federal regulations established by the 2018 Farm Bill.
  • This legislation decriminalized hemp and its derivatives, including Delta 10, as long as they contain 0.3% or less Delta 9 THC on a dry weight basis. Alabama's laws are consistent with these federal guidelines, making Delta 10 products legal in the state.
  • In Alabama, Delta 10 gummies and other Delta 10 products are legal provided they adhere to the THC content restrictions specified by law.

In 2018, the federal government signed into law a Farm Bill that modified how the law defines hemp and its derived products, including CBD and other cannabinoids like Delta 10.

Since then, hemp and its by-products have been decriminalized and made legal to produce, use, possess, and distribute. Alabama's cannabis laws are in line with the regulations issued by the federal government. This means that, by being a hemp-derived THC isomer, Delta 10 is legal in Alabama.

But the good news is that Delta 10 gummies are indeed legal in Alabama. The Cotton State allows hemp products such as Delta 10 products, as long as the Delta 9 THC portion of the hemp-derived product is 0.3 percent or less on a dry weight basis.

This means that as long as gummies are carrying an acceptable amount of Delta 9 THC, they are 100 percent legal and safe for use in Alabama.

Does Delta 10 have THC?

If by THC you really mean Delta-9 THC, then no, not at all as Delta 10 is free of THC. This in itself is a bit confusing as, indeed, Delta 10 is technically a THC isomer much like Delta-9 THC and Delta-8 THC. But because of the very small structural differences occurring between the Delta 10 and Delta-9 THC molecule, this causes somewhat different effects as well as a very important distinction in legality.

Namely, according to the federal government, but also most states around the country, including the state of Alabama here in the US still consider Delta 9 an illegal substance. The distinctions in difference of the chemical structure between that of Delta 10 have made for slightly different effects than that of Delta-9 THC.

Here's a summary of how Delta 10 and 9 compare!

Feature Delta-10 THC Delta-9 THC
Chemical Structure Similar to Delta-9 THC but with the double bond on the 10th carbon chain. Has a double bond on the 9th carbon chain, which influences its psychoactive effects and interaction with the body's endocannabinoid system.
Psychoactive Effects Produces psychoactive effects milder than those of Delta 9. Delta 10 is often described as having a more uplifting and energizing effect. Strong psychoactive effects, producing the "high" commonly associated with cannabis use. Known for its potent effects on mood, perception, and cognitive functions.
Legality Its legal status is somewhat ambiguous and varies by jurisdiction. In places where hemp-derived products are legal, Delta 10 may be legal if it is derived from hemp. Federally illegal in many countries, including the United States, under controlled substances acts, though legal for medical and/or recreational use in several states and countries.
Availability Less commonly found than Delta-9 THC. Widely available in regions where it is legal, in various forms such as flowers, edibles, concentrates, and more.
Medical Benefits Research is limited, but it may share some of the therapeutic benefits of other cannabinoids, such as pain relief, anti-inflammatory properties, and anxiety reduction. Well-documented for its medical benefits, including pain relief, anti-nausea, appetite stimulation, and more. Used in various medical cannabis programs.
Side Effects Expected to have fewer side effects than Delta 9 due to its milder psychoactive properties. Can include anxiety, paranoia, dry mouth, red eyes, and impaired memory or motor coordination at high doses

 

Delta-10 THC Federal Law

With the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp and its derivatives are now federally legal in the United States. In this Farm Bill, hemp is defined as a cannabis plant (marijuana) with less than 0.3 per cent Delta-9 THC by dry weight. Indeed, hemp is now legal to grow, process, buy, sell and consume, as are all hemp-derived products, like Delta 10 and Delta 8, under federal law.

Delta-10 THC Laws in Alabama

The same legal regulations regarding cannabis that brought CBD to Alabama and legalized it nationally mean that hemp-derived Delta 10 is also allowed in the Cotton State. This is because the laws of Delta 10 in Alabama are practically the same as those indicated in the 2018 Farm Bill.

Here are key sections in Alabama's Industrial Hemp Act, Section 2-8-380 et. seq., Code of Alabama 1975:

80-10-21-.02 Definitions.

(1) “Acceptable hemp THC Level” means, for the purpose of compliance with the requirements of a State hemp plan under the USDA rules, when the application of the measurement of uncertainty to the reported total delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol content concentration level on a dry weight basis produces a distribution or range that includes 0.3% or less. This definition of “acceptable hemp THC level” affects neither the statutory definition of hemp, 7 U.S.C. § 16390(1), in the 2018 Farm Bill nor the definition of “marihuana,” 21 U.S.C. § 802(16), in the CSA.

(2) "Cannabis": A genus of flowering plants in the family Cannabaceae, of which Cannabis sativa is a species and Cannabis indica and Cannabis ruderalis are subspecies thereof. Cannabis refers to any form of the plant in which the delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration on a dry weight basis has not yet been determined.

(11) "Delta-9-THC" means total delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol concentration (the primary intoxicating or psychoactive component of cannabis).

(13) “Dry weight basis” means the ratio of the amount of moisture in a sample to the amount of dry solid in a sample. It is a basis for expressing the percentage of a chemical in a substance after removing the moisture from the substance. Percentage of THC on a dry weight basis means the percentage of total THC, by weight, in a cannabis item (plant, extract, or other derivative), after excluding moisture from the item.

(19) "Hemp" or "industrial hemp" is the plant Cannabis sativa L and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a total delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.

Industrial hemp shall be considered an agricultural crop, an agricultural commodity, or both in all respects under state law. The term excludes marijuana as defined in subdivision (14) of Section 20-2-2 of the Code of Alabama, 1975.

(20) "Hemp product" or "industrial hemp product" is a product derived from, or made by, processing industrial hemp plants or plant parts.

Alabama Law Regarding Delta-10 THC

CBD, Delta 8, Delta 10, and hemp flower are legal in Alabama thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill. We know that many times, the discrepancies and legal loopholes between federal laws and state laws regarding cannabis can be confusing.

Nonetheless, when talking about hemp, its byproducts, and derived cannabinoids such as Delta 10, Delta 8, HHC, and, of course, CBD, there is nothing to worry about. Although there was an attempt in the Alabama Senate in 2021 to ban products containing Delta 8 and Delta 10, the proposal did not succeed.

Can You Order Delta-10 THC Online to Alabama?

Yes, you can order Delta 10 to Alabama without risking legal penalties. We know that although hemp, CBD, and their derivatives are allowed at a federal level, people may still have doubts due to rapidly changing cannabis laws. This confusion can leave some people still unclear about the legality of less common cannabinoids like HHC, Delta 8, and Delta 10.

Doubts regarding the legal status of Delta-9 THC, or “regular THC,” also abound. So far, only 21 states approve the recreational use of this cannabinoid. Delta-9 THC is still considered a “controlled substance” and is illegal in Alabama.

Nonetheless, this year the seeds for a medical cannabis program were planted in Alabama under the new legislation called the Darren Wesley Ato Hall Compassion Act. According to the National Law Review, this new program seeks to allow the medicinal use of THC-rich cannabis for patients with conditions such as epilepsy, HIV/AIDS, Crohn's disease, and even depression.

Even so, this new law does not allow the recreational use of Delta-9 THC-rich cannabis varieties, and to date, this cannabinoid remains illegal in Alabama for the general population.
