At Consider It Flowers, we’re thrilled to see how THCA is gaining traction and positively impacting people’s lives, many of whom are new to cannabis. It’s an exciting time for both businesses and Flowerheads.
Of course, the cannabis industry is quite dynamic, so it’s essential that we stay up to date on changing regulations and attitudes towards the plant and its derivatives.
With the enactment of the 2018 Hemp Farm Bill, hemp was officially defined as products containing less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC on a dry weight basis. In one fell swoop, cannabis was quietly made legal in all 50 states. This landmark legislation paved the way for widespread availability of THCA flower and concentrates across the US.
Differing Approaches Across States
With knowledge about THCA spreading, its popularity has been on the rise. As the demand for THCA has spread, different states have taken diverse stances on it and passed varying legislation around the compound, ranging from regulations to outright bans.
Some states, like Tennessee, North Carolina, and Texas, have taken a progressive approach towards hemp, allowing for broad access to THCA. On the flip side, in states where recreational or medical marijuana use is legal, there’s typically stricter regulations. Some states like Maryland and Connecticut have decided that THCA should only be sold through state-licensed dispensaries, ensuring tighter control over its distribution. Then there’s states like California, Arizona, and Kentucky that have implemented laws to outright prohibit the sale of inhalable hemp products.
Things get even more complex in many states, like Florida and Georgia, which have established new acceptable THC levels, taking into account both THCA and Delta-9 THC. This approach, again, results in a ban on psychoactive hemp products.
At Consider It Flowers, we prioritize staying informed about the ever-changing cannabis regulations. We’re committed to ensuring that our business and our Flowerhead customers stay on the right side of the law.
