Have you heard of Delta-8? No, we aren’t talking about the airline company or the faucet hardware. Today we are breaking down the 411 on the agricultural product known as Delta-8 that has been growing on SC.
So, what is it?
We don’t want to get in the weeds, so Delta-8 is 1 of 140+ compounds found in cannabis that has become increasingly popular due to the similarity to Delta-9 (aka tetrahydrocannabinol, the scientific name for THC).
Basically, the 2 cannabinoids share similar chemical structures + their names.
Is it legal in SC?
Currently, South Carolina has not banned Delta-8 + it is available locally. According to the South Carolina Department of Agriculture, the hemp plant is legal to grow in the state with proper permits; however, it has to have a THC level below .3%. Anything above that is illegal in the state, for now.
