As the proliferation of hemp based products and extracts such as CBD, CBG, and the ever popular Delta 8 THC explodes across Omaha, Nebraska - I think it is important to again take a look at one of the most common misconceptions that exist surrounding hemp derived products. It is very common to hear that hemp products legal in Omaha are not psychoactive – meaning they will not get you high. This is both true and not true. CBD, for example, comes in a full spectrum option and an isolate option. Here at Greenlight Natural in Omaha we sell Full Spectrum CBD products, to include oils, edibles and smokable hemp flower.
Full Spectrum CBD products can contain up to 0.3% Delta 9 THC – that is the federal legal limit under the 2018 Farm Bill. This is not a Nebraska law – this is a federal law. Now, 0.3% might not seem like a lot – and to be fair it isn't – but that is not to say that it is nothing. Take for example our Greenlight Natural full spectrum gummies. They are 25mg of CBD per gummy. They also contain 0.3% Delta 9 THC – which in terms of milligrams is nearly 1mg of Delta 9 THC per gummy. If an individual is sensitive to THC and takes 2 or more gummies, they will most certainly feel a slightly psychoactive effect.
Even more so with Delta 8 THC. Delta 8 is not restricted to 0.3% - and the majority of our D8 edibles are made with distillate that is ~95% pure Delta 8. People need to be aware that despite the media labeling this as “weed lite” it will still produce a very potent high, especially if ingested in a gummy or brownie, etc. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Thankfully since Omaha is currently operating under the guidelines of the 2018 Farm Bill, any hemp derived cannabiniods, so long as they do not exceed 0.3% Delta 9, are legal.
Soon we will be rolling out new options such as THC-O, HHC, THC-V, and THC-P. These are all legally derived from the hemp plant, and yes, are psychoactive. Now, I am not saying that Nebraska does not have a long way to go in terms of cannabis laws – we sure do. However, the options for both recreational and medical seekers is already abundant and very comparable to legal cannabis states. People rolled their eyes at the limitations of the 2018 Farm Bill – but I think as time goes on we are seeing the huge benefits from Hemp – marijuana isn't the only player in this game.
