Legal THC, it's all about the FLō.

Legal THC, it's all about the FLō.

Seems like everywhere you turn on social media, brands are promoting microdose THC-infused products from seltzers to cookies and everything in between.  This trend has a lot of people scratching their heads and asking “How can this be legal?”  

First of all, Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9-THC) plays a significant role in the formulation of full-spectrum CBD products.  The 2018 Farm Bill legalized the cultivation and sale of hemp-derived products containing trace amounts (less than 0.3%) of  Delta-9-THC based on dry weight.  

In CBD products, Delta-9-THC serves several purposes. First, it contributes to the "entourage effect," the phenomena where multiple terpenes and cannabinoids in full spectrum, and broad spectrum extract work in concert to enhance each other's therapeutic effects, kind of a 1+1=3 effect to make it simple. Although CBD is the non-intoxicating cannabinoid commonly known for potential health benefits, trace amounts of Delta-9-THC are often present in full-spectrum CBD products, along with other cannabinoids and terpenes, to help maximize efficacy.

The 0.3% Delta-9-THC limit mandated by the 2018 Farm Bill is a significant constraint.  However, when we take into consideration the weight of a gummy vs the weight of a few drops of tincture, the possibility of a mildly intoxicating effect becomes evident. Heavier products like infused gummies, cookies or even beverages make it possible for manufacturers to include a mildly intoxicating or “micro-dose” level of Delta 9 in their products and still meet the legal limit of 0.3%. This process necessitates rigorous testing standards to verify the Delta-9-THC content of finished products, guaranteeing legal compliance and consumer safety and every batch.  Seven Points is no exception, each and every batch is tested to the highest standards and we publish the results on our site.  

Legal Delta-9-THC levels in CBD products are important for two reasons: regulatory adherence and consumer confidence. By complying with the 0.3% limit, Seven Points  CBD operates well within the bounds of the law. Second, adhering to strict potency standards helps us build trust with our consumers, who demand reliable products that deliver the desired therapeutic effects.

Here’s where it gets good.  Seven Points FLō State gummies are made with a special, full spectrum hemp extract called “Mother Liquor”.  Mother Liquor extract is formulated to carry a little extra THC but there are some rules.  The most important rule is that compliant CBD products must contain no more than 0.3% THC by weight. Since gummies are heavier than most other forms, each FLō State Gummy can contain 5mg of hemp derived Delta 9 and still be well under the limit, about 0.1% to be exact.  Combine this with the fact that FLō State Gummies are vegan, organic and have nothing artificial and you have a recipe for an amazing microdose gummy perfect for a long ride, hike or movie night.  

Always remember, FLō State Gummies are for adult use only so please keep them safe from the little ones and enjoy responsibly.
