Delta 8 THC is a unique cannabinoid found in the hemp plant that is seeing rapid expansion in not only popularity, but also both medically and recreationally. While Delta 8 THC does feature familiar properties to the main chemical found in your common marijuana, Delta 9 THC, it does have generally less potency and a completely different effect on its users.

Yes, Delta 8 THC is legal in Wyoming
As of today (10/29/2020), Delta 8 THC is legal according to Wyoming state law. Like the federal law, Wyoming has legalized all derivatives, cannabinoids, and isomers of hemp including all tetrahydrocannabinols other than Delta 9 THC.
Like other states in the region, Wyoming follows similar policies to that of Delta 8 THC in Kansas and Delta 8 THC in Oklahoma. Luckily, they haven't adopted the same law as Delta 8 THC in Montana where the sale is restricted.
The relevant laws follow:
BILL NO. HB0171. CHAPTER 51 - HEMP PRODUCTION
(iii) “Hemp” or “hemp product” means all parts, seeds and varieties of the plant cannabis sativa l., whether growing or not, or a product, derivative, extract, cannabinoid, isomer, acid, salt or salt of isomer made from that plant with a THC concentration of not more than three‑tenths of one percent (0.3%) on a dry weight basis when using post‑decarboxylation or another similarly reliable testing method;
(vii) “THC” means tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive component of the cannabis plant, with the scientific name trans‑delta 9‑tetrahydrocannabinol.
35‑7‑1011. Control of substances.
(d) If any substance is designated, rescheduled, or deleted as a controlled substance under federal law the commissioner shall control the substance under this act in the same manner as federal law within thirty (30) days after receiving notice of the change but not later than thirty (30) days after the first publication of the change in the Federal Register. Under this subsection, the commissioner shall control the substance in the same manner as federal law through the promulgation of an emergency rule, followed by promulgation of a permanent rule under the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act. If the commissioner objects to the designation, rescheduling or deletion of a substance, the commissioner shall within the same period required to control the substance publish the reasons for objection and afford all interested parties an opportunity to be heard. At the conclusion of the hearing, the commissioner shall publish his decision which shall be final unless altered by statute. Upon publication of an objection to designation, rescheduling or deletion under this act by the commissioner, control under this act is stayed until the commissioner publishes his final decision. Any final decision that ultimately controls the substance under this act in the same manner as federal law shall be finalized through the promulgation of an emergency rule, followed by the promulgation of a permanent rule under the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act.
35‑7‑1063. Exceptions to provisions.
(a) The provisions and penalties of this chapter shall not apply to:
(i) The possession or use of hemp or hemp products for any purpose or application;
(iii) Hemp production, processing or testing in accordance with the provisions of W.S. 11‑51‑101 through 11‑51‑107.
(b) As used in this section “hemp” or “hemp product” means all parts, seeds and varieties of the plant cannabis sativa l. or a product made from that plant with a trans‑delta 9‑tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration of not more than three‑tenths of one percent (0.3%) on a dry weight basis.
Cannabis Policy in Wyoming
As of May 2020, Wyoming still is trailing behind other states when it comes to modern marijuana policies, as it is one of the only 17 states with no medical marijuana laws in place. Any progress in the legislature was lost as the session adjourned early due to the coronavirus pandemic.
