Read on for the full scoop on the legality of Delta 9 THC in Kansas.

In April, 2018, Kansas received approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to implement its state hemp program. With this approval, Kansas joins the majority of states that have already regulated the legality of hemp and hemp-derived products.

How Is Delta 9 THC Legal?

Under the 2018 Farm Bill, products containing Delta 9 THC are legal on a federal level in the US, provided they meet the following conditions.

  1. The Delta 9 THC is derived from hemp
  2. Products contain 0.3% or less of THC by dry weight

Following the federal legalization of hemp for industrial purposes, Kansas Senate Bill 263 was signed into law in 2018, which authorized the Kansas Department of Agriculture either alone or in coordination with a state institution of higher education, to grow and cultivate industrial hemp and promote the research and development of industrial hemp.

Let’s get into the details.

The 2018 Farm Bill

The 2018 Farm Bill authorized the widespread production of hemp derived products on a federal level, and removed hemp from the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) list of Controlled Substances.

This Bill differentiated industrial hemp from marijuana, which is cultivated for its high THC content. Federally legal hemp products, according to the Farm Bill, must contain less than 0.3% of THC by dry weight, and the source of THC must be industrial hemp.

Even though hemp is legal on a federal level, each state can determine which hemp-derived products are legal in said state. For example, Delta 8 THC gummies are legal on a federal level but illegal in a number of states.

The 2018 Farm Bill gives states the authority to submit plans to the United States Secretary of Agriculture in order to have primary regulatory control over the production of hemp within their borders. The plans must include procedures for tracking the land on which hemp will be grown, as well as testing, disposal, enforcement, inspection, and certification procedures.

Kansas Senate Bill 263

Soon after the US Federal government passed the Farm Bill in 2018, Kansas legalized hemp in April 2018 when Governor Jeff Colyer signed Senate Bill 263 or the Alternative Crop Research Act into law. This bill launched the state’s independent pilot program to research hemp with less than 0.3% THC in partnership with universities in Kansas.  


Governor Colyer signed Senate Bill 282 in 2018, amending the classification of marijuana to expressly exclude cannabidiol (CBD). This bill generally legalized CBD and required that such products have no THC in order to be sold legally.


Governor Laura Kelly signed House Bill 2167 into law in 2019. This law allowed the establishment of a Kansas Industrial Hemp Program, but only CBD products with no THC were permitted in the state.


All hemp growing in Kansas must be licensed by the Kansas Department of Agriculture.

Medical Marijuana in Kansas


Kansas is one of just 13 states without a full medical cannabis statute, and one of only 19 that still punishes cannabis possession with jail time.


For the first time, Kansas enacted legislation recognising cannabis's medical usefulness in 2018, leaving Idaho as the only state in the country waiting to do the same. SB 282 amended the definition of marijuana to exclude cannabidiol (CBD).


However, because Kansas marijuana laws prohibit the use of tetrahydrocannabinols (THC), it is difficult and unsafe for medical cannabis users to take advantage of this rule, because most CBD products include at least trace quantities of THC ("hemp" is frequently classified as 0.3% THC or less). The law, like SB 28 in 2019, does not allow for the sale of CBD oils in Kansas.


Recreational marijuana use in Kansas is still illegal.

Hemp Products Legality in Kansas

What is Delta 9 THC?

Delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol (also known as Delta 9 or Δ-9-THC) is one of the many forms of THC found in hemp and marijuana plants. Tetrahydrocannabinols (THC compounds) are among the 113 cannabinoids recognized in cannabis.

Delta 9 THC is found in both hemp and marijuana plants. THC in hemp has been a controversial topic in recent years. Hemp plants contain very low levels of Delta 9 THC, but because of their close relationship to marijuana plants, they are often confused with them. This misunderstanding has led to a great deal of confusion and debate surrounding the legal status of hemp products.

All THC compounds produce psychoactive effects and make you feel high at a sufficient dosage, with Delta 9 THC providing the strongest effects. Our Delta 9 products contain THC in small doses: enough for you to experience the many benefits of THC without experiencing unwanted psychoactive effects.

Hemp Derived Delta 9 vs Delta-9

The difference between Delta 9 obtained from hemp and Delta-9 derived from cannabis is not scientific. Hemp and cannabis are both types of the Cannabis sativa plant. They also share many of the same chemicals, such as CBD and Delta-9. There are two primary methods through which hemp-derived Delta-9 THC is manufactured.

One method is "isomerization," in which manufacturers use chemical processes to turn hemp-derived CBD into Delta-9. Most manufacturers employ isomerization to generate Delta 8, Delta-10, and other common THC isomers. Delta-9 THC obtained in this manner is referred to as hemp-derived rather than hemp-extracted.

Another popular technique is to take natural Delta-9 extract from hemp. This can happen during the distillation of other cannabinoids, such as CBD. As this method literally extracts Delta-9 from hemp, it’s referred to as hemp-extracted THC Delta-9.

Both methods remain legal ways to produce hemp Delta-9.

Delta 9 THC Effects

  • euphoria
  • talkativeness
  • relaxation
  • an increase in appetite
  • perception changes

Delta 8 vs Delta 9

Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC are both cannabinoids that are found in marijuana. While both Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC offer a variety of potential benefits, they each have their own unique effects.

Delta-9 THC is the most well-known type of THC cannabinoid product. It is the main psychoactive component in cannabis, and it is responsible for the plant's signature "high." Delta-9 THC as a more potent Delta strain of THC is also known for its medical benefits, which include pain relief, anti-inflammatory effects, and more.

A Delta 8 product is less potent than Delta 9 products, making it a good choice for those who are new to cannabis or looking for a more gentle experience.

In terms of medical benefits, both cannabinoids have been shown to be effective at reducing anxiety and pain.

In terms of medical marijuana, Delta 8 THC is sometimes used to treat cancer patients who are undergoing chemotherapy, as it can help to reduce nausea and vomiting. It is also being studied as a potential treatment for Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. Delta 8 has also been shown to help with nausea and appetite loss, while Delta 9 can improve focus and concentration.

However, more research is needed to confirm the efficacy of Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 in these potential applications.
