New York Tightens Regulations on Hemp-Derived Cannabinoid Products: Sets THC Limits
New York state cannabis regulators have approved emergency regulations to limit the amount of THC allowed in products containing ‘potentially intoxicating’ hemp-derived cannabinoids. The new rules, which could become law within 60 days, require edible products to have a 15-to-1 ratio of CBD to THC. Furthermore, such products are limited to no more than 10 milligrams of THC per package and 1 milligram per serving.
Retailers are also prohibited from selling any product with more than 0.5 milligrams of THC to anyone under 21 years old. This move by New York is the latest attempt to regulate the largely unregulated market in hemp-derived cannabinoids, which include intoxicating delta-8 and delta-9 THC as well as CBD. Synthetic and “artificially derived” cannabinoids, such as delta-8 and delta-10 THC, are already banned in the state, though enforcement has proven to be challenging.
The proliferation of products containing hemp-derived cannabinoids, along with New York’s robust illicit market in cannabis, “frustrates” the state’s nascent legal market and creates an unsafe environment for consumers, according to a Cannabis Control Board resolution approved on Wednesday.[Source: MJBizDaily]
