If you live in the USA, the legal status of various cannabinoids can be a bit confusing to understand. This is especially the case with less well-known cannabinoids such as Delta-8 THC. Delta-8 THC is generally made by converting hemp derived CBD into it. That said, according to federal law, Delta-8 THC should therefore be legal. Delta-8 THC and the federal law, as well as Delta-8 THC and Georgia State laws, are what we are here to look at today. Let's figure out whether or not Delta-8 THC is legal in the state of Georgia.

Key Takeaways

  • According to the 2018 Farm Bill, Delta-8 THC is federally legal as long as it meets the required criteria.
  • According to Georgia House Bill 213, Delta-8 THC is legal in the State so long as it meets the required criteria.
  • Delta-8 THC should be legal as long as it is hemp-derived and contains less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC.

Delta-8 and the Federal Law

According to the federal law, specifically the 2018 Farm Bill, any cannabinoids that are derived from CBD that comes from the hemp plant should be legal. Furthermore, any such products, such as edibles, made with Delta-8 THC, in order to be legal, must contain less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC by dry weight concentration. In other words, if you buy a Delta-8 THC edible, so long as that Delta-8 THC is derived from hemp based CBD, and contains acceptable levels of Delta-9 THC, it is totally legal. Delta-8 THC is therefore legal at a federal level.

Georgia’s Delta-8 Laws

According to House Bill 213, which was passed by the Georgia State Legislature, if the Delta-8 THC is extracted from hemp, it is legal. It should also be totally legal as long as it does not contain more than 0.3% Delta-9 THC by volume.

Final Thoughts: Is Delta-8 Legal in Georgia?

That said, there are some states that are slowly moving to restrict or even ban Delta-8 THC, so keep up to date with the latest developments.
