Delta-8 THC Declared Legal in Kentucky
Delta-8 THC has been declared a legal hemp derivative after a year of deliberation.
Katie Moyer, president of the Kentucky Hemp Association (KHA), said in a statement that this was a “huge win for farmers and retailers of hemp derivatives in the Commonwealth.” According to Moyer, there isn’t any reason for Kentucky to be moving backwards by banning hemp products that have been sold for years in Kentucky already.

Boone Circuit Judge Rick Brueggemann declared Delta-8 to be a legal derivative of hemp, and issuing an injunction against law enforcement preventing them from charging retailers and hemp producers for selling Delta-8.
