The legal status of Delta-9 THC in Georgia and in the USA as a whole is questionable. Delta-9 THC is of course the regular kind of THC that is found in most cannabis plants. However, there are some strict laws surrounding it, both federally and at the Georgia State level. The answer to the question of whether or not Delta-9 THC is legal in Georgia is both yes and no. Let's take a closer look at exactly what is meant here.

Key Takeaways

  • Delta-9 is legal in Georgia if it adheres to limits as set out by the 2018 Farm Bill.
  • Delta-9 THC, whether hemp-derived or otherwise, may not be put into food products in Georgia.
  • Delta-9 THC is legal in Georgia in hemp flower, oils, and concentrates, as long as it is hemp-derived and not present in dry weight concentrations greater than 0.3%.

Delta-9 and the Federal Law

According to federal law, specifically the 2018 Farm Bill, Delta-9 THC is legal if it is derived from the hemp plant, and if it is not present in dry weight concentrations greater than 0.3%. This means that for every 1000 grams, whether we are talking about flower or edibles, there can only be 3 grams of delta-9 THC. In other words, if we have hemp flower, for it to be legal, one gram of flower would have to contain less than 0.003 grams of Delta-9 THC. As you can tell, this generally means that cannabis flower with Delta-9 THC is automatically illegal. It is more or less impossible for real cannabis flower to have such low THC content. So, technically speaking, Delta-9 THC is legal federally as long as it is only present in such minute quantities. Realistically, Delta-9 THC cannabis flower is illegal.

Georgia’s Delta-9 Laws

Georgia's state laws surrounding Delta-9 THC are virtually the same as those set out by the 2018 farm bill. It's only legal in the state of Georgia as long as it is present in concentrations less than 0.3%, and if it is derived from the hemp plant. If we are talking about Delta-9 THC in the form of an oil or concentrate, particularly for medically acceptable purposes, the limit jumps up to 5% Delta-9 THC in dry weight concentration. However, what is very important to note is that although hemp-derived Delta-9 THC, up to 0.3% in dry weight concentration, is legal in the state of Georgia as far as various hemp products are concerned, edibles are not. In the state of Georgia, any food product or edible may not be infused with any amount of Delta-9 THC. So, technically speaking, Delta-9 THC is legal in the state of Georgia, as long as it is hemp-derived, not present in quantities higher than 0.3% (or 5% in oils for medical purposes), and not in the form of gummies or edibles. However, it quickly becomes illegal if it is present in quantities higher than is set out by the 2018 Farm Bill.

Is Delta-9 a Controlled Substance in Georgia?

If the Delta-9 THC is hemp-derived and present in dry weight concentrations under 0.3%, then it is technically not considered a controlled substance. However, if the Delta-9 THC is present in concentrations greater than 0.3%, if it is found in edibles and gummies, or if it is not hemp-derived, then it is considered a controlled substance. Officially, cannabis, Delta-9 THC, is regulated under the Georgia Controlled Substances Act.

Delta-9 Possession Limits in Georgia

Once again, in the state of Georgia, Delta-9 THC may only be possessed in quantities less than 0.3% in dry weight concentration. It must also be hemp-derived. However, if the Delta-9 THC in question is not hemp-derived, then the possession limit is zero. You are not allowed to possess any cannabis or Delta-9 THC in the state of Georgia. For instance, if you are caught with under one ounce of cannabis, it is considered a misdemeanor with either a $1000 fine or one year of jail time, period, if you are found in possession of up to 10 pounds of cannabis, this is considered a felony, with a possible 10 years in prison. If you are found with more than 10 pounds, you will get between one and seven years in prison, and slash or up to $5000 in fines, along with a mandatory prison sentence for second time offenders. As well, anybody caught in possession of 10 pounds or more is considered to be trafficking and is subject to even harsher penalties.

Is Delta-9 Legal in Georgia?

If we are talking about Delta-9 THC in hemp flower, oils, and concentrates, then it is legal as long as it is not present in concentrations over 0.3% or over 5% for registered medical patients. However, Delta-9 THC must also be hemp-derived to be legal. At the same time, even hemp-derived THC is not legal to be infused into edibles or gummies.
