The use of Delta 8 THC has increased because it creates a similar high to users as Delta 9 THC. However, the high is more of a relaxed feeling that many people have come to depend
on for pain relief. Unfortunately, it was announced on ABC13News yesterday that this amazing cannabinoid from cannabis is illegal in Texas as a Schedule 1 drug. The statement reads: “Texas Health and Safety Code Chapter 443 (HSC 443), established by House Bill 1325 (86th Legislature), allows Consumable Hemp Products in Texas that do not exceed 0.3% delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). All other forms of THC, including delta-8 in any concentration and delta-9 exceeding 0.3%, are considered Schedule I controlled substances.”(Is Delta-8 Legal? The Texas Department of State Health Services Says No. | Dallas Observer)
Many small business owners currently selling Delta 8 products should remove all of these products from their shelves and websites. Note your inventory and mark it as a loss for tax purposes. We remain hopeful in Texas, but it is getting harder to provide clients with the level of high-quality products they have become accustom to here.
I will remain creative and motivated to help others find ways to combat chronic pain.
