420 with CNW — Appeals Court Says Delta-8 THC Federally Legal

According to a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals panel, products containing delta-8 THC are legal under federal law. The court ruled that the 2018 farm bill was clear and only restricted delta-9 THC to no more than 0.3% of a product on a dry-weight basis.

Delta-9 THC, commonly called THC, is the most plentiful of all cannabinoids and it is responsible for the “high” that marijuana users experience. This substance…

420 with CNW — Commissioner Califf Admits FDA Hasn’t Done Much on CBD

While addressing a Congressional panel, FDA chief Dr. Robert Califf admitted that the agency he heads hasn’t been as fast as stakeholders may want as it handles matters of creating regulatory pathways for different products, including cannabidiol, extracted from hemp.

He admitted that while things look the same as they were when hemp was legalized back in 2018, his agency now has more data because it has been doing plenty of research. He added that most of the funds allocated to…
