>0.3% THC per weight. This is still plenty enough to get you high. No it's not. Not even close. Even someone who has never smoked in their life would need to smoke an insane amount of weed that impotent to feel anything. The only thing big that came out of the farm bill was CBD being legalized, and CBD has been refined into Delta 8THC which isn't regulated and can be bought, technically legalizing cannabis, but not really.

> No it's not. Not even close. Even someone who has never smoked in their life would need to smoke an insane amount of weed that impotent to feel anything. That's why I specifically said edibles. Since the most common form is gummies I looked up the weight of an average gummy bear. It's about 2.9 grams. Thats 2900 mg. That allows for 8.7mg of THC. Make the gummies slightly bigger and it can be 10mg per gummy. That is well enough to get me high. Source: Got high off 10mg Delta 9 gummies legally purchased in a non-legal marijuana state. Also a standard sized chocolate bar could have over 120mg of THC under this guidelines...you could break that into 10 pieces and each piece would still be enough to get you high.

That is well enough to get me high. ~~So the whole premise of your question is based around your fundamental misunderstanding of how the law works. The farm bill legalized *growing* weed that was under .3% Delta 9 thc, so in other words it legalized growing hemp. Not extracting that Delta-9 THC and putting it into edibles.~~ >Got high off Delta 9 gummies legally purchased in a non-legal marijuana state. ~~You think you bought legal edibles but you didn't. Delta 9 THC is still fully regulated under the controlled substance act. The farm bill Trump signed into law didn't change that a bit. If you bought weed from a store in an illegal state, it was almost certainly delta-8THC.~~ edit: it does appear like there are companies who are operating in a bit of a grey area of the law with hemp derived Delta-9 products. Not sure if I'd call it fully legal like OP is saying, but I also will step back this comment saying that its not legal at all, when it seems like to some degree it may be.

It specifically says Delta-9 on the package and is labeled 10mg of D9 and 10mg of CBD per gummy. [Here's a pic of the brand.](https://nitrocdn.com/UlXkHIzMLQQWyWrvCUGUoMpYiIhKFjue/assets/static/optimized/rev-16ecbe3/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/D9Gummies100MG3x372dpi-01_x600.jpg)

Maybe they have found a way around the law to sell hemp derived delta-9, but I'd call it a "grey area" of the law, rather than full legalization which is probably why these companies are avoiding getting too brazen and making a big deal to the media. Especially because it could slow down progress for actual legalization which these websites have basically already put themselves at the front of the race for.

Because everyone in the weed echo chamber already knows and few people outside it care this much.

>they have less than 0.3% THC per weight. This is still plenty enough to get you high. Uh, is it? What, if you eat the whole bag? lol


ThreadbareAdjustment

I got a bag of gummies that are 10mg apiece. I ate a single gummy and got very very high. Also a Hershey's standard sized chocolate bar is 42.5 grams. 0.3% of that is 127.5 mg. WAY more than needed to get high.


ForScale

~~Check your math. 0.3% of 42.5 is 0.1275.~~ He's right. Grams to milligrams.


ThreadbareAdjustment

42.5 grams. Which is 42,500 mg. 0.3% of that is 127.5mg.


ForScale

Ah... my bad! Edited.

> However currently edibles are legal federally and in all states That is not true. You cannot legally purchase delta 9 thc gummies in all states. CBD is widely available, sure. Not sure federally though. delta 8 and delta 10 are largely unregulated, but I'm sure bans will start hitting soon just like with the synthetic cannabinoids years ago.


ThreadbareAdjustment

I bought Delta 9 gummies over the counter in a non-legal state. And they are clearly labeled D9, not D8 or D10.


ForScale

~~You did an illegal thing.~~ Well... now I'm googling and I honestly don't know. You may have just opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities. Thanks!


ThreadbareAdjustment

I walked into a store and bought it with my debit card. Not in cash from some shady guy in a back alley. And they were plainly labeled and in full display, not a case of me saying some secret code word and the clerk giving me something from the backroom. The store even says "CBD/Delta" on its sign out front. If they're selling illegal products I'd say they'd probably be a tad more discrete about it.


ForScale

Yeah... I've been googling. Edited my previous reply. You may have just opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities. Thanks! Mind telling me what state?


ThreadbareAdjustment

Minnesota


ForScale

Nice. I'm in Indiana and have been seeing a bunch of derivatives (d8, d10, etc), but I don't think I've seen d9 available. Yet... 🤞

Doesn't it all depend on the size of your buds, edibles , or plants? How HUGE are they?


ThreadbareAdjustment

It's just for edibles, but the requirement is they have less than 0.3% THC in dry weight.
