But don't worry, your favorite cannabis connoisseur is here to break it all down for you. So let's rewind a little and take a look at how this momentous change came to be. Buckle up, it's gonna be a high ride!
Navigating the Green Maze: The Federal Legal Status of D9 THC
This all began with the groundbreaking 2018 Farm Bill. This piece of legislation was a game-changer for the hemp industry and cannabis enthusiasts like us.
Before the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp was lumped together with its psychoactive cousin and was considered a controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act. But then, the bill was signed into law and everything changed. Suddenly, hemp was no longer a controlled substance. It was a legitimate, legal crop that could be cultivated, processed, and sold under state-regulated programs.
This was a huge win for us hemp lovers. The 2018 Farm Bill not only paved the way for the legal cultivation and sale of hemp nationwide, it also opened up new avenues for farmers, businesses, and consumers alike. With the stroke of a pen, the hemp industry was given the green light to grow and thrive.
Farmers who were once wary of growing hemp due to its legal status suddenly found themselves with a valuable new crop. Businesses saw opportunities to create a wide array of hemp-based products, from textiles to health supplements. And for consumers, well, we got a wider range of hemp products to choose from, including our beloved Delta 9 gummies.
Now that we've taken a look at the federal level, it's time to zoom in on Chicago. How did the Windy City respond to the 2018 Farm Bill? Well, let's just say they weren't about to let the rest of the country have all the fun. Fasten your seatbelts, because we're about to take a trip down legalization lane, Chi-town style!
Windy City's Green Lights: The Legal Status of Delta 9 Gummies in Chicago
Once the doors were opened at the federal level, Illinois wasn't about to be left behind. The Illinois General Assembly swiftly passed the (410 ILCS 705/) Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act, which was signed into law by Governor Bruce Rauner on August 27, 2018.
This act was groundbreaking in its own right. It defined industrial hemp as the Cannabis sativa L. plant, and any part of that plant — seeds, derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers — with a Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis. So, what does this mean? It essentially meant that hemp, including Delta 9 THC, was legal in Illinois as long as it contained less than 0.3% THC.
But it didn't stop there. The act also set up a licensing system for industrial hemp producers and processors, providing a clear legal framework for the hemp industry to operate within in the state.
And let me tell you, this had a monumental impact on the Windy City. Hemp businesses have been able to operate legally, and the demand for hemp-based products, including our beloved Delta 9 gummies, has been on the rise. We've seen a boom in the hemp industry, creating new jobs and contributing to the local economy.
So, thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill and the swift action by the Illinois General Assembly, we now have a thriving, legal hemp industry right here in Chicago.
