Delta 8 THC is a unique cannabinoid found in the hemp plant that has been rapidly expanding in popularity nationwide with promising applications in both the medical and recreational fields. While Delta 8 THC might have some properties familiar to Delta 9 THC, the main chemical found in marijuana, it has completely different effects and less potency generally.
But is Delta 8 THC legal in Minnesota?

As of 10/04/2021, Delta 8 THC is legal according to Minnesota state law. Like the federal law, Minnesota has legalized all derivatives, cannabinoids, and isomers of hemp including all tetrahydrocannabinols other than Delta 9 THC.
In much the same vein as Delta 8 THC in Ohio, Minnesota has decided to be relatively more open with it's hemp laws.
Here is the bill:
Subd. 3.Industrial hemp. “Industrial hemp” means the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of the plant, whether growing or not, including the plant’s seeds, and all the plant’s derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis. Industrial hemp is not marijuana as defined in section 152.01, subdivision 9.
Subd. 9. Marijuana. “Marijuana” means all parts of the plant of any species of the genus Cannabis, including all agronomical varieties, 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 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. Marijuana does not include hemp as defined in section 152.22, subdivision 5a.
152.02 Subd. 2. Schedule I.
(h) Marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinols, and synthetic cannabinoids. Unless specifically excepted or unless listed in another schedule, any natural or synthetic material, compound, mixture, or preparation that contains any quantity of the following substances, their analogs, isomers, esters, ethers, salts, and salts of isomers, esters, and ethers, whenever the existence of the isomers, esters, ethers, or salts is possible:
(2) tetrahydrocannabinols naturally contained in a plant of the genus Cannabis, synthetic equivalents of the substances contained in the cannabis plant or in the resinous extractives of the plant, or synthetic substances with similar chemical structure and pharmacological activity to those substances contained in the plant or resinous extract, including, but not limited to, 1 cis or trans tetrahydrocannabinol, 6 cis or trans tetrahydrocannabinol, and 3,4 cis or trans tetrahydrocannabinol;
Subd. 5a.Hemp. “Hemp” has the meaning given to industrial hemp in section 18K.02, subdivision 3.
Earlier this year, House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler introduced his legislation to legalize and regulate cannabis in the great state of Minnesota but was immediately shot down by the Republican Caucus, as it would not pass through the Senate.
The senate also has killed a modest, House-passed proposal to allow whole plant, raw medical cannabis, which would greatly reduce the cost of medical cannabis, that currently remains out of reach to many Minnesotans.

You bet! Back in 2019, Minnesota lawmakers legalized the sale and production of hemp products. This was a huge move for the cannabis industry and the farmers of Minnesota. Since hemp cultivation became legal, over 7,000 acres have been licensed to grow hemp in MN.
As of October 4, 2021, Delta 8, along with other hemp derivatives, are legal in Minnesota. Like federal law, the only cannabinoid with a concentration limit is hemp-derived Delta-9. A hemp product can have up to 0.3% of hemp-derived Delta-9 on a dry weight basis.
