Is Delta 9 THC Legal in Ohio?
So, is Delta 9 THC legal in Ohio? Let’s take more of an in-depth look.
The United States Department of Agriculture presented the 2018 Farm Bill a few months prior to it being signed into law. A key highlight of this bill included the federal legalization of hemp. The bill was signed into law by President Trump on December 20th, 2018.
The Senate Bill Below contains the law and legality of Delta-9 THC in Ohio:
AMENDED SUBSTITUTE SENATE BILL NUMBER 57
Chapter 928: Hemp and Hemp Products
(C) “Hemp” means the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than three-tenths percent on a dry weight basis.
(27) Tetrahydrocannabinols (synthetic equivalents of the substances contained in the plant, or in the resinous extractives of Cannabis, sp. and/or synthetic substances, derivatives, and their isomers with similar chemical structure and pharmacological activity such as the following: delta-1-cis or trans tetrahydrocannabinol, and their optical isomers; delta-6-cis or trans tetrahydrocannabinol, and their optical isomers; delta-3,4-cis or trans tetrahydrocannabinol, and its optical isomers. (Since nomenclature of these substances is not internationally standardized, compounds of these structures, regardless of numerical designation of atomic positions, are covered.)), excluding tetrahydrocannabinols found in “hemp” and “hemp products” as those terms are defined in section 928.01 of the Revised Code.
Currently, there is not a concentration limit for Delta 8 and CBD in Ohio. However, the state does have a concentration limit when it comes to Delta 9-THC. Hemp-derived Delta-9 concentrations are only allowed at 0.3% or less on a dry weight basis.
In Ohio, “weed” is only legalized for caregivers and qualified patients. However, you can buy Delta 9 products online in Ohio.
What’s Delta 9 THC?
There are over 113 cannabinoids that can be extracted from the hemp plant. The most commonly sought-after include:
- Delta 8-THC
- Delta 9-THC
The cannabinoid Delta 9 THC (Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) can be found in hemp and marijuana plants. It's commonly misconstrued that hemp contains little-to-no THC, or specifically Delta-9 THC. However, the hemp plant contains many THC compounds that fall under the legal definition of hemp.
CBD, Delta 9, and other cannabinoids, can be extracted easily and efficiently from hemp by a process called CO2 extraction. CO2 extraction allows for cannabinoids to be extracted directly from the plant, resulting in a safe and clean product.
We use CO2 extraction at Hometown Hero for all of our products. This process allows us to safely extract the blend of CBD, Delta-9, and other cannabinoids that we use for our Select Spectrum line. All of our products contain only naturally-derived cannabinoids, so you never have to worry about the quality of our products.
What’s the Difference Between Delta-8 and Delta-9?
Delta 8 and Delta-9 are both forms of THC, but the actual effect they have is quite different. Though they both share the same chemical formula, they have a distinct difference in arrangement.
Delta 8 is an isomer of Delta 9. Delta 9 has what’s known as a “double-bond” located on its ninth carbon chain, while Delta 8’s double-bond is located on its eighth carbon chain. It may seem like a small difference, but the location of the bond will make your body feel different.
Unless it appears in a concentration more than 0.3% on a dry weight basis or is derived from a marijuana plant, Delta 9-THC cannot be categorized as a form of marijuana.
What Are the Effects of Delta 9 THC?
Each person will have their own individual experiences with cannabinoids. Some of the top-effects post-consumption include, but are certainly not limited to feelings of:
- “The giggles”
- Increased appetite
These feelings will tend to vary depending on the amount in which you’ve consumed. A smaller dose of Delta 9 THC usually leads to shorter durations of its effects, but this is also dependent on a person’s tolerance level.
Someone with a lower tolerance will likely feel these effects at a higher degree as opposed to a person with a higher level of tolerance. That said, a person with a high tolerance can still feel overwhelmed if they consume larger amounts than what they’re used to on a regular basis.
For example, if you eat any hemp-derived edible, or are planning on doing so, Hometown Hero recommends starting off with a small amount.
Can You Buy Delta 9 in Ohio?

Where to Buy Legal Delta 9 THC in Ohio

Is Delta 9 Safe?
THC products are generally safe. You have nothing to worry about as long as you don’t drive anywhere. It is illegal to drive a vehicle or operate any machinery under the influence. It’s best to be prepared beforehand to avoid any trips into town - or anywhere for that matter.
Moderation is the key to an enjoyable experience with Delta 9. If you consume too much at one time, you may have feelings such as paranoia or a loss-of-touch with reality. If you find yourself in an uncomfortable setting or just aren’t feeling right, try some of your favorite calming activities. Hometown Hero suggests listening to music and/or writing to get the most out of your experience.
