You can purchase hemp products with CBD, Delta-9 THC and minor cannabinoids, but you cannot buy Delta-8 Colorado. Delta 8 THC is a cannabinoid found organically in the hemp plant that has rapidly expanded in popularity nationwide. This explosive growth can be attributed to the growing interest from the generally public and researchers alike. While Delta 8 THC has some properties familiar to the main chemical found in marijuana, Delta 9 THC, it has completely different effects along with generally less potency.
While Delta 9 THC might already be legalized, is Delta 8 THC legal in Colorado?

You Can Buy Select Spectrum in Colorado
You can't buy Delta-8 in Colorado, but Select Spectrum is legal in the Centennial State. So what exactly is Select Spectrum? Most cannabis products focus on just one cannabinoid. Select Spectrum is a blend. To be specific, these types of products contain CBD, Delta-9 THC, and other natural hemp compounds. Why did we make this blend? CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids have their own effects. Together, they can compliment each other quite nicely. This synergy is known as the "entourage effect."
Just one Select Spectrum gummy has 10mg of CBD, 10mg of Delta-9, and other cannabinoids. Since Select Spectrum is legally hemp, you can easily order it online, with credit or debit, and have it delivered to your door. So if you’re looking to try out a hemp-based edible that promotes the entourage effect, and you live in Colorado, then give Select Spectrum a try!

No, Delta 8 THC is not legal in Colorado
As of writing this (7/29/2021), Delta 8 THC is illegal under Colorado state law.
It's unfortunate that Colorado doesn't share similar regulations to that of Delta 8 THC in Washington or Delta 8 THC in Oregon as these states seem to kindred spirits. Hopefully, Colorado will come around on this cannabinoid in the future.
