The State of Texas Legalizes Delta 8 & Delta 10 THC Products
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The new so-called “Diet Weed“ remedy will stay legal in the state of Texas.
Delta 8 along with other THC products were to be made illegal with the passage of Texas House Bill 2593. Last week, the provision that would make them illegal was stricken from the vote on legislation.
Delta 8 is a form of THC. Delta 9 is the THC that gives the “high” effect of cannabis. Delta 8 naturally derives from hemp.
“While not quite as potent as Delta 9, it is another form of THC,” said James Baines, owner of the Red Emperor CBD. “There are five to six different forms depending on the plant, but it is one of the forms of THC.”
“It provides the entire entourage effect,” said Baines. “If you’re not familiar with the entourage effect, I would encourage you to look it up. It is the combination of the effect of CBD and THC together to work together to do a great job. We’re now in the greatest position in the state of Texas to have a combination of CBD and THC hemp products to help those people.”
The people he’s seen Delta 8 help come in all different ages. He says reasons for using Delta 8 can range from issues medically to psychologically.
“Lots of stress,” he said. “Lots of stress, especially with this day in age. And honestly a lot of medical ailments. Anything from cancer to PTSD, epilepsy things like that. “
Now a new THC product is taking rise, Delta 10. House of Hemp is stocking their shelves with it as it’s another form of THC.
“Now we have Delta 8 and Delta10 and soon coming Delta 6,” Baines said. “Delta 10 is another form of THC…It’s another bump up that has a slightly different high effect. The effects are slightly different, but it does provide that entourage effect that we talked about earlier.”
One of the biggest benefits we see with this new product is that you can not be arrested and charged criminally in the state of Texas with these products. Which is the goal of putting Texas on par with the other 16 states that have already legalized recreational marijuana.
