Delta 8 THC in Colorado: Is it Legal?

This Legal Disclaimer is incorporated by reference and subject to our Terms of Service, which you agree to by using this website.

Delta 8 THC is a cannabinoid found organically in the hemp plant that has rapidly expanded in popularity nationwide with promising results in both the medical and recreational fields. 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?

No, Delta 8 THC is not legal in Colorado

As of writing this (11/03/2020), 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.
