Sales of delta-8 THC and other psychoactive cannabinoids that are chemically modified from natural cannabinoids are booming. Sellers claim that these substances are federally legal under the 2018 Farm Act. But are they? This webinar will first delve into the chemistry of these modified cannabinoids, how they are derived, possible safety concerns, and their similarities and differences from delta-9 THC. Speakers will then discuss the legal status of these relatively new cannabinoids under FDA, USDA, and DEA rules, the evolving nature of state bans, and the potential influence on policy discussions about other cannabis products.
