Bee’s Wellness Delta8 Gummies


What is Delta 8?

The most well-known cannabinoid worldwide is Delta 9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (D9 THC or Delta-9), made from cannabis sativa.  The euphoric feeling you feel when you smoke cannabis is Delta 9 THC.  Marijuana and hemp contain Delta 9 THC.  However, they also contain Delta 8 THC.  Delta 8 THC is about 50-75% of the potency of Delta 9.

Is Delta 8 Legal?

Delta 8 hemp is currently federally legal under the 2018 US Farm Bill.  According to federal law, hemp products can not contain more than 0.3% Delta 9 THC as measured on a dry weight basis.  Our edibles are made from high-quality, pure, terpene-rich industrial-derived hemp extract and meet this standard.

How is it legal?

The 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp and its cannabinoids on a federal level. Each state has its own law regulating hemp, cannabis, and marijuana. Prior to the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp and marijuana were both categorized as a Schedule 1 drug. However, a bright line rule was established by the Farm Bill which distinguished marijuana from hemp which centers around the amount of Delta-9 THC within the plant. 

If the concentration of Delta-9 THC of the cannabis plant is under 0.3% on a dry weight basis, the plant is categorized as hemp. On the other hand, any cannabis plant that has a concentration exceeding 0.3% Delta-9 THC on a dry weight basis is categorized as marijuana.

For a finished product to qualify as a hemp derived product, it must meet a two-prong test. First, it must be under 0.3% Delta 9 on a dry weight basis. Second, a manufacturer must prove the cannabinoids are, in fact, derived from a hemp plant.

Therefore, products with under 0.3% Delta 9 on a dry weight basis are considered a hemp product so long as the cannabinoids can be sourced from hemp. We ensure that our products stay well below the 0.3% Delta 9 threshold.
