“Hemp Derived THC” means that the THC is entirely produced from the Hemp plant, NOT marijuana. The 2018 Farm Bill clarifies that Hemp is federally legal as long as it contains no more than 0.3% Delta-9 THC on a dry weight basis. Delta-9 THC, also known as ∆9, D9, and THC, is the main psychoactive cannabinoid that is responsible for the classic “high” that most users are familiar with. Over the last 25 years, most consumers have only been able to get Delta-9 THC (derived from the marijuana plant) in medical and/or recreational cannabis states. As of 2022, with advancements in extraction technology and further research into the hemp plant, we have been able to bring a “Dispensary Quality” Delta-9 THC experience (derived from the hemp plant) to consumers across all 50 states!

Our Delta-9 THC gummies feature 100% hemp-derived Delta-9 THC that you know and love. There are no synthetic distillates or unknown compounds added to the gummy.

According to Section 10013 of the 2018 Farm Bill, “hemp” is defined as “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 0.3% on a dry weight basis.” Melee’s Delta 9 THC products are legal in all 50 states under the 2018 Farm Bill because they are derived from 100% legal hemp, and contain a “delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3% on a dry weight basis.”
If you want to learn more about the technicalities, read this: Melee Dose 5mg gummy weighs 5 grams (5,000mg = dry weight) .3% x 5,000mg= 15mg (legal limit) Our 5mg gummies contain less than the legal limit of Hemp Derived Delta-9 THC by dry weight, therefore making them compliant with current Hemp laws.

All Melee Dose hemp-derived products provide the same psychoactive properties as THC products that can be found in recreational and medical dispensaries throughout the country. The only difference is that you can get our products (legally) shipped in the mail to your doorstep.

Both Marijuana and Hemp are species of Cannabis Sativa plants. Marijuana is federally illegal, but Hemp became federally legal when the Farm Bill passed in 2018. The law differentiates Marijuana and Hemp by the total Delta-9 THC content of a product, Marijuana is defined by containing more than 0.3% Delta-9 THC and Hemp is defined by containing less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC. This bill decriminalized hemp-derived products that contained less than 0.3% THC. Marijuana remains federally illegal because of its high THC content.

Nope! There is no difference between a cannabinoid being derived from either “cannabis” or “industrial-hemp”. Our Hemp Derived Delta-9 THC products provide a similar effect to Delta-9 THC products that you can find in dispensaries where medical and recreational marijuana is legal.

Pre-Roll Joints / THCa

THCa hemp flower refers to cannabis buds which have a delta-9 THC concentration of 0.3% or less by dry weight, while being rich in THCa.

THCa, short for tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, is a cannabinoid generously produced by the cannabis plant. Unlike delta-9 THC, THCa is non-intoxicating. However, it can convert to delta-9 THC through a process known as “decarboxylation” when exposed to heat, light, or over time. This conversion is likely to occur when THCa flower is smoked or vaped.

The experience can vary among individuals, but there’s a chance one might feel “high” or intoxicated after smoking THCa hemp flower. It’s advisable to caution your customers about this possibility, and to refrain from selling THCa hemp flower to minors.

Yes, since THCa hemp flower contains cannabinoids, including THC, it could lead to a failed drug test. It’s advisable not to use THCa hemp flower if you are subject to drug testing.

Yes, as per federal law, THCa hemp flower is legal given the 2018 Farm Bill defines legal hemp based on delta-9 THC levels (not exceeding 0.3% by dry weight) rather than THCa levels. The federal Controlled Substances Act further clarifies hemp as being distinct from marijuana, hence not categorized as an illegal substance.

The DEA recognizes THCa hemp flower as lawful hemp, provided it adheres to the stipulated delta-9 THC concentration of 0.3% or less on a dry weight basis, making it compliant with the Controlled Substances Act.

No, there hasn’t been a federal court ruling on THCa hemp flower. However, the federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has asserted that the legal distinction between marijuana and hemp is solely based on the delta-9 THC concentration level.

No, state laws vary regarding the legality, sale, possession, and licensing of harvested hemp and hemp flower. Some states consider both delta-9 THC and THCa levels for legality determinations, a calculation known as “total THC.” It’s crucial to understand your state’s laws and consult with a legal advisor if uncertain about the legality of THCa hemp flower in your state.

Yes, federal law permits the interstate transportation of hemp, including THCa hemp flower. Despite varying state laws concerning hemp and hemp products, they cannot prohibit the transportation of hemp through their territory as mandated by federal law.

Due to varying state laws and potential misconceptions regarding THCa hemp flower, it’s not recommended to smoke it in public or keep an open package in a vehicle. It’s advisable to sell it in sealed, clearly labeled packaging indicating its legal hemp status.

It’s prudent to review a Certificate of Analysis (COA) with the guidance of an attorney to verify cannabinoid levels, including delta-9 THC, in the hemp product. Melee Dose ensures all its products are compliant under federal law at the point of departure from our facility and provides a current COA for reference. It’s highly advisable to seek legal counsel if your state employs the total THC calculation method to ascertain the legality of post-harvest cannabis flower.

Melee Dose rigorously tests its hemp flower to ascertain legal compliance. However, due to the potential conversion of THCa to delta-9 THC through decarboxylation, it’s imperative to store THCa hemp flower in cool, dark, and dry places to minimize accidental conversion.

Yes, Melee Dose has acquired a legal opinion letter concerning the legality of THCa hemp flower.
