Hemp-derived delta-8 is 100% federally legal; however, with the lack of regulation, consumers should do their due diligence before purchasing.

Delta-9 is primarily derived from marijuana, which is still treated as a controlled substance and is federally illegal under the Controlled Substance Act.

The 2018 Farm bill federally legalized hemp and hemp-derived products that contain no more than 0.3% Delta-9-THC.
