Delta 8 - FAQs
Is Delta 8 THC Legal and Can it Make Me Fail a Drug Test?
We’ve all been trained for almost a century to think anything regarding Delta 9 THC is something we should be scared of. Obviously, things are changing, but Delta 8 is a whole different substance than Delta 9 THC. It is derived fully from hemp, and due to the 2018 Farm Bill, it is legal federally and fully legal in most states.
The Farm Bill stated that anything containing under .03% Delta 9 THC is legal and allowed in the United States. The Farm Bill also made amendments to the Controlled Substance Act, taking any derivatives of Hemp off the banned substances originally under the act.
Let’s look at how it’s derived, this is a great way to give you an idea as to how it’s different than Delta 9, and why it’s legal. Delta 8 is an isomer of CBD, which is a derivative of both CBD and Hemp, not traditional THC. Both legal under the Farm Bill. You don’t just have to take our word for it either that our products are below the legal levels. We have all of our products tested by third parties and all of our tests have shown a Delta 9 THC content of less than .03%, which is the legal federal limit.
Simply put, yes it can make you fail a drugtest. When you excrete Delta 8, in whatever form, your body treats it the same way it would treat Delta 9. It is processed very similarly, and they do not have tests yet that can differentiate between the two compounds. Be careful and do not put your job on the line if you know you get tested.
