Is Delta 9 THC Legal to Buy in North Carolina?

In North Carolina, there is no specific concentration limit for Delta 8 and CBD. However, there is a concentration limit Delta 9-THC. Hemp-derived Delta-9 concentrations can only be 0.3% or less on a dry weight basis.

North Carolina remains as one of states in the country where “weed” is not yet legalized. But because of hemp’s legality on a federal and state level, you can buy Delta 9 gummies online in North Carolina.

These sections of SB 352 outline the legality of Delta-9 THC in North Carolina:

AN ACT REVISING THE NORTH CAROLINA CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES ACT.

(13a) “Hemp” means the plant Cannabis sativa (L.) and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, within a delta-9 THC concentration of three-tenths percent (0.3%) on a dry weight basis.

(13b) “Hemp extract” means an extract from hemp, or a mixture or preparation containing hemp plant material or compounds, within a delta-9 THC concentration of three-tenths percent (0.3%) on a dry weight basis.

(13c) “Hemp product” means any product within a delta-9 THC concentration of three-tenths percent (0.3%) on a dry weight basis derived from, or made by, processing hemp plants or plant parts, that are prepared in a form available for commercial sale, including, but not limited to, cosmetics, personal care products, food intended for animal or human consumption as approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration or the United States Department of Agriculture, cloth, cordage, fiber, fuel, paint, paper, particleboard, plastics, and any product containing one or more hemp-derived cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol. “Hemp product” does not include smokable hemp.

(16) “Marijuana” means all parts of the plant of the genus Cannabis, whether growing or not; the seeds thereof; the resin extracted from any part of such plant; and every compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of such plant, its seeds or resin, but shall not include the mature stalks of such plant, fiber produced from such stalks, oil, or cake made from the seeds of such plant, any other compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of such mature stalks (except the resin extracted therefrom), fiber, oil, or cake, or the sterilized seed of such plant which is incapable of germination. The term “marijuana” also includes smokable hemp.

The term does not include hemp, when in the possession, custody, or control of a person who holds a license permitting that person to cultivate or handle hemp; hemp products; or hemp extracts. A licensed cultivator or licensed handler may possess raw hemp plant material for the purpose of (i) selling the raw hemp plant material to a licensed handler or a person who may legally receive the raw hemp plant material in that person’s jurisdiction or (ii) processing the raw hemp plant material into a hemp product or hemp extract.

What’s Delta 9 THC?

Out of the 113 cannabinoids that can be extracted from the hemp plant, the most commonly consumed include:

Delta 9 THC (Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is a natural cannabinoid found in both hemp and marijuana plants. It’s a common misconception that hemp does not contain THC, or specifically Delta-9 THC. Having amounts of Delta-9 THC is part of hemp’s legal definition.

What’s the Difference Between Delta-8 and Delta-9?

Delta 8 and Delta-9 are both forms of THC, but they are unique in their effects. Both have the same chemical formula, but with a distinct difference in arrangement.

Delta 8 is an isomer of Delta 9. Delta 9 has what’s known as a “double-bond” located on its ninth carbon chain, while Delta 8’s double-bond is located on its eighth carbon chain. It may seem like a small difference, but the location of the bond has a specific effect on your body.

Delta 9-THC cannot be categorized as a form of marijuana unless it appears in a concentration more than 0.3% on a dry weight basis or is derived from a marijuana plant.

What Are the Effects of Delta 9 THC?

Everyone has their own unique experience with cannabinoids. However, some of the more common effects post-consumption include, but are certainly not limited to feelings of:

  • Euphoria
  • Relaxation
  • Calmness
  • “The giggles”
  • Connectedness
  • Comfort
  • Increased appetite

These feelings vary not only from person to person, but also depending on the amount in which you’ve consumed. Smaller doses of Delta 9 THC will typically lead to shorter durations of its effects, but this also varies based on a person’s tolerance.

A person with a lower tolerance will usually feel these effects at a higher degree than someone with a higher tolerance. However, a person with a high level of tolerance can still feel overwhelmed if they consume larger amounts than usual.

For example, if you eat any hemp-derived edible, or are planning on doing so, Hometown Hero recommends starting off with smaller amounts.

The key to an enjoyable experience with any hemp product with Delta 9 in it is moderation. If you find yourself in an uncomfortable state of mind, try some relaxing activities that you enjoy. Hometown Hero suggests listening to music and/or cooking to enjoy the ride fully.

Marijuana, Hemp, and CBD – Frequently Asked Questions

The legality is marijuana is currently a hot topic and important question. Although North Carolina remains hesitant to reform, various states have implemented wide ranging legalization laws. Additionally, federal legalization was proposed in the US House for the first time recently and is thought to be a topic for review with the new incoming administration. Also, with the recent passage of federal and North Carolina law permitting the growth, processing, shipment, and sale of hemp and hemp derivatives, there are a growing number of questions related to the legality of cannabis. Our attorneys routinely represent individuals charged with criminal marijuana offenses as well as businesses engaged in the lawful sale of hemp products. The following FAQs are intended to help individuals understand the differences between marijuana and hemp and what is permissible and impermissible in North Carolina.

What are the different marijuana possession charges in North Carolina?

As a reminder, marijuana and hemp are both cannabis. However, marijuana and hemp are different varieties of the Cannabis Sativa L. plant. As a general matter and without getting into the specifics of testing methods, hemp must contain 0.3% or less total Tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”). Hemp is a legal agricultural commodity. Marijuana is an illegal controlled substance under both North Carolina and federal law.

Under North Carolina law, individuals can be charged with:

  • Misdemeanor possession of marijuana (less than 1.5 oz)
  • Felony Possession of Marijuana (1.5 oz – 10lbs; one-twentieth of an ounce of marijuana resin extract (hash, wax, shatter, vape, etc.) or any amount of synthetic THC)
  • Felony Possession with Intent to Sell and/or Deliver
  • Felony Trafficking of Marijuana (more than 10 pounds)

Marijuana remains an illegal federal controlled substance as well. Federal marijuana misdemeanor and felony prosecution applies for offenses committed on federal property, including the Capitol grounds and the mall within DC, as well as all national parks and military property nationwide, and other land under federal control. Federal marijuana laws also apply to offenses involving interstate commerce and importation from other countries.

How will I be punished for selling marijuana?

It depends whether you are charged in state or federal court and how much marijuana you are charged with selling. The following lists provide helpful guidance.

North Carolina Possession Sentences

        • Less than 0.5 oz: Class 3 misdemeanor subject to a fine up to $200, probation, or up to 20 days in jail/
        • 0.5 – 1.5 oz: Class 1 misdemeanor subject to a fine in the court’s discretion, probation, or up to 120 days in jail.
        • 1.5 oz – 10 lbs; one-twentieth of an ounce of marijuana resin extract or any amount of synthetic THC: Class I felony charge subject to a fine, probation, or up to 24 months in jail.

        North Carolina Marijuana Sale/Trafficking Sentences

              • Selling to age 13 and under: Class C felony charge punishable by up to 231 months in jail.

              Federal Marijuana Possession Sentences

              Possession of marijuana is punishable by up to one year in jail and a minimum fine of $1,000 for a first conviction. For a second conviction, the penalties increase to a 15-day mandatory minimum sentence with a maximum of two years in prison and a fine of up to $2,500. Subsequent convictions carry a 90-day mandatory minimum sentence and a maximum of up to three years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.

              Federal Marijuana Distribution Sentences

              Distribution of a small amount of marijuana, without payment, is treated as possession. Manufacture or distribution of less than 50 plants or 50 kilograms of marijuana is punishable by up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. For 50-99 plants or 50-99 kilograms the penalty increases to not more than 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million if an individual, $5 million if other than an individual for the first offense. Manufacture or distribution of 100-999 plants or 100-999 kilograms carries a penalty of 5 – 40 years in prison and a fine of $2-$5 Million. For 1000 plants or 1000 kilograms or more, the penalty increases to 10 years – life in prison and a fine of $4-$10 Million.

              Is hemp legal in North Carolina?

              Yes, subject to very specific regulations. In order to be legal, hemp and hemp products (including CBD) must contain less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is the active ingredient in marijuana that creates the feeling of being high. Subject to certain administrative licensing and registration requirements through the North Carolina hemp pilot program and federal rules released by the USDA as well as the FDA, it is legal to cultivate, process, transport, sell, and possess hemp and hemp products.

              Is CBD legal in North Carolina?

              Yes. Cannabidiol (“CBD”) and other cannabinoids (excluding THC) derived from hemp are legal in North Carolina. Proponents of CBD products claim an array of health benefits including treatment for seizures, arthritis, pain-relief, and anxiety all without the impairing effect of THC. CBD is often infused in cosmetic products like lip balms and oils, added to foods (although CBD containing foods are not currently permissible per FDA guidelines) like honey and gummies, and is even contained in an FDA approved drug, Epidiolex, which is used to treat epilepsy.

              Are THC vapes legal in North Carolina?

              No. Vaping and cartridges or using other forms of marijuana resin extract (hash, wax, dabs, shatter, etc.) in other ways is illegal in North Carolina and is punishable as a felony for possession of more than one-twentieth of an ounce.

              If hemp is legal, will I be protected against employment drug testing?

              Yes. Or at least you should be under the Lawful Use of Lawful Products, N.C.G.S. § 95-28.2. This law prohibits employers from refusing to hire, terminating, or otherwise discrimination against a candidate or employee who engages or has engaged in the lawful use of lawful products off the premises of the employer during nonworking hours and the use does not adversely affect the employee’s job performance or the safety of other employees.

              Since hemp is now a legal substance under both federal and state law, employees who use hemp products during nonworking hours off the employer’s premises arguably fall under this law’s protection. Although hemp and CBD contain low levels of THC, the permissible trace amounts of THC may be enough to result in a positive drug test. The problem facing employers and employees is that a positive THC test is generally unable to distinguish between illegal marijuana use and legal use of hemp and hemp products.

              Can I grow hemp in my backyard?

              No. Under state and federal laws, industrial hemp growers must be issued a license to participate in the industrial hemp pilot program. The Industrial Hemp Commission is responsible for developing rules and regulations for participating in the program.

              How much CBD is legal?

              While NC hemp license holders are required to report acreage, weight, type, and storage locations to the Hemp Commission, there is not currently any state or federal prohibition on the amount of hemp or CBD an individual may possess as long as other licensing, registration, and other applicable administrative reporting requirements are met.

              How will police know if the hemp or CBD product is legal?

              Unfortunately, individuals using hemp and CBD products may find themselves facing criminal prosecution. Although the use and possession of hemp and CBD is not illegal, law enforcement officials sometimes have a hard time telling the difference between hemp and marijuana which is still illegal in all forms in North Carolina. The confusion is understandable given that hemp flower, which can be smoked by CBD users, looks and even smells like marijuana. Further, even though hemp and CBD products can contain only 0.3% or less total THC, these low levels can still test positive on a police officer’s field test. Hemp users should also be concerned that drug tests may return a positive result.

              Because legal hemp and CBD are very new to the market, police officers may not yet be trained on distinguishing the difference between hemp and marijuana. Until that happens we can reasonably expect to see a rise in the number of arrests and prosecution of individuals and businesses that use or sell hemp products. It is in your interest the have a criminal defense attorney experienced in this specific area of the law.

              Can my hemp products be seized by law enforcement?

              It is certainly possible. As discussed above, law enforcement has an understandably difficult time distinguishing between illegal marijuana and legal hemp and hemp derivative products. Our firm has seen situations were police have seized permissible hemp products mistakenly believe them to be contraband. In those situations, your best course of action is to get an attorney involved who understands the issues. There are a number of best practices our firm has helped clients implement to help prevent this type of situation from occurring. Among other preventative measures, it is recommended that you have on hand any product label, or certificate of analysis for any hemp or hemp-derived product when you are in possession of these items in public places to show a law enforcement officer if you are stopped or the product is confiscated.

              What if I was charged with a crime because of CBD in North Carolina?

              Contact a criminal defense attorney experienced with hemp and CBD issues. The attorneys at Dysart Willis Houchin & Hubbard are available 24/7 to talk to you about your case and how we can help.

              Are CBD gummies legal in North Carolina?

              In North Carolina, non-profit agencies are allowed to operate a Bingo parlor no more than twice a week with games being 48 hours apart and no longer than five hours per session. And if you want to have a cocktail while you play your Bingo, you’re going to have to go out of state because all Bingo parlors are prohibited from serving alcohol of any kind. A majority of people in North Carolina support legalization of medical and Recreational Marijuana, but neither are legal as of 2021. But don’t worry, CBD is legal in North Carolina.

              It’s legal to buy CBD products such as Delta 8 Preroll in the Tarheel State, as long as the CBD contains less than 0.3 percent THC content. THC is the main psychoactive ingredient found in cannabis, which is known to create the psychoactive effects many know as a “high.” So, while you legally can’t get high in North Carolina, you can enjoy the next best thing— the relatively small THC content in a CBD gummy is enough for you to catch a CBD “chill.”

              Everyone loves gummy candies. Now many pharmaceuticals and supplements are available in gummy form—CBD supplements are no exception. CBD gummies are a fun and convenient way to get your daily dose of CBD. CBD gummies are cannabidiol-infused (CBD) chewy edibles, and CBD edibles have been skyrocketing in popularity since many states, including North Carolina, have relaxed their views on the legality of low-THC cannabis products.

              And when North Carolinians start looking for the best CBD gummies they can find, they turn to Cornbread Hemp. Cornbread Hemp’s full spectrum CBD gummies are unrivaled in the CBD marketplace for a number of reasons, including the fact that they are Flower-Only™ full spectrum, USDA Certified Organic, and flavored with real organic blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries. Each gummy is rolled by hand in cane sugar crystals. This not only keeps them separated and easy to dispense, it also makes them sweeter.

              Not only are these gummies full spectrum, organic, and grown in the safest and most sustainable way, they’re also vegan! Don’t eat meat? Don’t worry. Our vegan gummies are made with apple pectin, not gelatin which is made from animal parts. Pectin is a fiber found in fruits that is often used to thicken jellies and jams. “Full spectrum” means a CBD product that contains a legal amount of THC, and Flower-Only™ means a richer full spectrum and no bitter aftertaste

              Gummies are just one product in Cornbread Hemp’s USDA organic line, all of which are full spectrum with up to 0.3 percent THC. Cornbrad’s other products include their best-selling CBD Oil and CBD cream including their popular CBD Balm, with organic arnica and peppermint. Cornbread even offer an CBD oil for pets, formulated for dogs and cats with their signature vegan corndog flavoring.

              Another thing that sets Cornbread Hemp apart in the crowded marketplace—and this matters to a lot of people—they aren’t corporate. They are family-owned and crowdfunded. Co-founded by two cousins: former journalist Jim Higdon and e-commerce whiz Eric Zipperle, Cornbread Hemp raised $400,000 on Wefunder in a crowdfunding campaign in 2020, in the midst of the COVID pandemic.

              Cornbread Hemp’s products are made exclusively in Kentucky. Kentucky has a 250-year hemp history, with its first recorded hemp crop in 1775. For a century, Kentucky led the nation in hemp production. That’s because Kentucky has the perfect soil, water, and light cycles for growing cannabis.

              It’s very similar to the reasons why Kentucky bourbon is the best in the world — because of the soil, the water, the sun and the seasonal cycle of heat and cold that helps Kentucky bourbon age to perfection. Kentucky hemp is grown in that same calcium and magnesium-enriched soil and the same limestone-filtered water that makes the bourbon there. That just makes a better product.

              But there is another key reason that Kentucky hemp-derived CBD is superior. These hemp farms are situated along the 37th parallel, the same latitude line that runs through the Hindu Kush mountains, the region where all indica strains of cannabis originated.

              From that exceptional hemp, Cornbread produces Flower-Only™ full-spectrum products, which make Cornbread Hemp special. The industry standard of CBD production uses the whole plant—flowers, stems, leaves and seeds. Cornbread Hemp uses only the hemp flower – nothing else. Whole plant CBD oils have a bitter taste and require a cover flavor, like peppermint, but Cornbread Hemp’s Flower-Only™ full spectrum CBD products taste great naturally.

              When it comes to buying CBD products, online purchasing is one of the safest ways of procuring CBD products. Reviews and test results are readily available online, and the products are delivered discretely and legally right to your door.

              When you’re shopping for hemp-derived CBD oil products, look for USDA certified organic, non-GMO CBD products grown from hemp cultivated with no synthetic fertilizers or pesticides and with no added flavoring, preservatives, or fillers — like the CBD products offered by Cornbread Hemp.
