Are THC Gummies For Sale In MN Legal?

It can be confusing for consumers in Minnesota to keep track of the constant changes in the laws around the use of THC products. While medical marijuana has been legal since 2014, recreational marijuana is still illegal in the state.

The confusion for most consumers is marketing and promoting of THC gummies for sale in MN. Understanding a bit about the difference between hemp-derived THC and the THC that is produced by cannabis strains will clear up this confusion.

Hemp and Cannabis Plants

Hemp and cannabis (marijuana) strains are in the same family of plants. The difference is in the THC levels in the plants. Hemp Indica, Sativa, and hybrid chemovars (strains) have been developed to have a very low THC and a high CBD level. To be classified under the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp plants must have a THC level of 0.3% or less by dry weight. On the other hand, marijuana cannabis plants are developed to have a high THC and low CBD levels.

Extracting Hemp-Derived THC

Industrial hemp, with its low THC level, still contains THC, which is a naturally occurring cannabinoid. During the extraction process, the THC is removed from the hemp plant and used in full-spectrum CBD products or as a isolated product.

Under the law, THC gummies for sale in MN are legal if they are produced from hemp plants that have 0.3% THC or less. These gummies provide an uplifting and relaxing effect that compliments the natural wellness benefits of CBD.
