Lawmakers across the U.S. have a beef with THC isomer products, which have flooded the market over the last few years. Now, many legislators want new rules and legislation. Some want to ban the products outright, but many want the products to stay on the market with more regulation.

“Instead of an outright ban, the delta market should be regulated like alcohol and cigarettes,” said Zachary Maxwell, president of Texas Hemp Growers.

The 2018 Farm Bill federally legalized hemp with up to 0.3% delta-9 THC on a dry weight basis. Delta-9 THC is the chief psychoactive component in weed that gets users high. State laws mirrored the language in the federal bill, which didn’t say anything specifically about other THC isomers like delta-8, which have the same chemical formula as delta-9 but with a different chemical structure. Those differences make for different effects.

Hemp companies started selling these products across the country, and ever since, some people in the hemp industry, lawmakers and public health officials have sounded the alarm on the products and their lack of regulation.
