Current Vermont Delta-8 Legislation

Vermont defines hemp as an agricultural product and has defined a clear definition of what it considers to be a “hemp product” similar to the federal legislation.

In the 6 V.S.A. § 562 Vermont Statute, it provides the following definition:

"Hemp products" or "hemp-infused products" means all products with the federally defined tetrahydrocannabinol concentration level for hemp derived from, or made by, processing hemp plants or plant parts, that are prepared in a form available for commercial sale, including cosmetics, personal care products, food intended for animal or human consumption, cloth, cordage, fiber, fuel, paint, paper, construction materials, plastics, and any product containing one or more hemp-derived cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol.

"Hemp" or "industrial hemp" means the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of the plant, including the seeds and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, acids, salts, isomers, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with the federally defined tetrahydrocannabinol concentration level of hemp. "Hemp" shall be considered an agricultural commodity.

Since the type of tetrahydrocannabinol federally defined in the 2018 Farm Bill states specifically the Delta-9 THC level of .3% is the limit not to be exceeded, this legislation makes Delta-8 THC unregulated in the state.

Vermont Industrial Hemp Act

The amended law sets up a regulatory framework for licensing and overseeing the cultivation of hemp as an agricultural crop by qualified growers. The state's Hemp Program is currently monitored by the State of Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets.
