Yes, Select Spectrum is Federally Legal
The 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp on a federal level along with its cannabinoids. At this time, Select Spectrum is legal in all 50 states as well. Each state has their own law regulating hemp, cannabis, and marijuana. However, none of them have laws that prohibit the sale and use of Select Spectrum products.
Legally speaking, hemp is cannabis with a 0.3% or lower concentration of Delta-9 THC per dry weight. All of the cannabinoids in Select Spectrum products come from hemp. Along with CBD, there is 10mg of Delta-9 THC per gummy. The Delta-9 THC content is approximately 0.167% of each gummy's dry weight— well below the legal limit. Hometown Hero made this blend to promote the entourage effect. But keep in mind that the effects of cannabinoids can vary from person to person.
What is a Farm Bill?
A farm bill is a set of legislation passed every few years that acts as the primary vehicle for food and agriculture policy in the United States.
Signed by President Trump on December 20, 2018, the 2018 Farm Bill legally separated hemp from marijuana and then legalized hemp on a federal level. Before this bill, hemp and marijuana were the same under federal law. Like marijuana, hemp was a Schedule I drug.
Hemp and marijuana are the same species—cannabis. The only difference between the two is their concentration of Delta-9 THC. Hemp has a 0.3% or lower concentration, while marijuana is any concentration above that. These standards also apply to cannabis-based products. The only determining factor of a cannabis product's legality is the concentration of Delta-9 THC on a dry weight basis and the source of its cannabinoids.
The Future of Legalization
The 2018 Farm Bill is one of the most historically significant pieces of cannabis legislation ever passed.
After the federal government legalized hemp, many states have followed suit and adopted similar measures. For example, in June 2019, Texas signed HB 1325 into law, legalizing hemp and its cannabinoids throughout the state.
Nonetheless, nothing is set in stone when it comes to hemp's legal status. Even after states have legalized hemp, some of them have taken measures to ban certain cannabinoids found in hemp.
During the 2021 Texas legislative session, there were two attempts to outlaw hemp-derived Delta-8 THC. Through a hemp-industry coalition led by Hometown Hero, the attempts were thwarted. It is because of these efforts that products such as Delta-8 and Select Spectrum remain legal in Texas.
If you are interested in protecting hemp and expanding cannabis access, there are several ways you can get involved. When you purchase from Hometown Hero, you're not only supporting veterans charities. You're also supporting a company that actively fights, and has won, to keep hemp-derived cannabinoids legal in the Lone Star State. You can also get involved by calling your state senators and representatives to voice your opinions on protecting hemp and expanding cannabis legalization.
