#Delta8 found its place in smoke or vape shops and convenience stores with many positioning it as a mildly psychoactive product for people without access to legal cannabis.

As of June 2021, twelve states have completely banned delta-8 THC, including Washington state who's regulators said marijuana processors cannot convert hemp-derived CBD into delta-9 THC in the legal cannabis market, a move that is likely to be welcomed by MJ cultivators who feared the practice involving federally legal hemp would undermine their own businesses.

The process combines CBD with a solvent, acid, and heat to cause the reaction that turns CBD into THC. And because the FDA has not yet provided any regulations, there is a lack of standardization in lab testing across the board.

With state limits on hemp-derived delta-8 THC beginning to impact sales for product manufacturers and retailers, businesses are considering how they will make up the gap. Until federal agencies come to a final ruling and standardize regulations, laws will continue to change on a state and local level.
