Legal Hemp-Derived THC in New OrleansSimply CBD Shop

Hemp-derived Delta-8 THC and Delta-9 THC are now legal in the state of Louisiana. Canna Moons, Delta-9 THC gummies from Crescent Canna, provides the THC experience you’re looking for, without the need for a prescription.

No. But you can get the same desired effects from THC legally, safely, and without a prescription.

Though decriminalized elsewhere, recreational marijuana is still illegal in Louisiana. You can get a prescription for medical marijuana if you have certain qualifying medical conditions. But high cost, burdensome regulations, and limited supply make this a chancy option at best.

Even without access to recreational marijuana, though, as a resident of Louisiana you can enjoy a genuine THC experience. Advances in cannabis extraction and changes in the law have made THC products available to all adults in the state.

What is THC?

THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid responsible for the high associated with the use of cannabis. Its various forms include delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol, aka Delta-8 THC, and delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, aka Delta-9 THC.

Both cannabinoids intoxicate, and they are chemically similar. But Delta-8 THC binds to the receptors of the endocannabinoid system in a slightly different way, making it only about two thirds as potent as Delta-9 THC.

Users of Delta-8 report some of the same effects that they experience when using Delta-9 THC, including relaxation, pain relief, and more.

Legal Status of Delta-9 THC

Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, products that are derived from hemp and that contain less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC by weight are federally legal. This means that Delta-8 THC of any purity is legal, but that Delta-9 is legal only when present in concentrations less than 0.3% by weight.

To ensure legality, all Delta-8 and Delta-9 products sold by Simply CBD contain less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC. Even so, as THC edibles they are still highly potent and effective.

Our legal THC products are officially registered with the Louisiana Department of Health and are available without a prescription to anyone over 21 who can present a valid ID.
