Is Shipping THC Drinks Legal?

Oct 14, 2023Kim Gamez

So you've heard about these new hemp derived THC drinks that are all the rage. They promise to give you a relaxing, chill experience without the psychoactive effects of traditional marijuana. But before you jump on the bandwagon and start ordering these drinks online, you might be wondering: is it actually legal to ship them in the US?

What's the deal with hemp derived THC drinks?

First things first, let's talk about what exactly these drinks are. Hemp derived THC drinks are beverages that contain a compound called cannabidiol (CBD), which is derived from hemp plants. CBD is known for its potential health benefits, such as reducing anxiety and promoting relaxation. Unlike its cousin, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD does not have psychoactive effects, meaning it won't get you high.

Legal or not?

Now, let's get to the burning question: are these drinks legal to ship in the US? The answer is...it depends. The legality of hemp derived THC drinks varies from state to state. While CBD is legal on a federal level, individual states have their own laws and regulations regarding the sale and distribution of CBD products.

But fear not! There's good news for those of you living in AK, AL, AR, AZ, CA, CT, DC, DE, FL, HI, IA, ID, IL, IN, KY, LA, MA, ME, MI, MN, MO, MS, NC, ND, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OK, PA, SC, SD, TN, TX, VA, VT, WA, WI, WV, and WY. These states have legalized the sale and distribution of hemp derived CBD products, including drinks. So if you're lucky enough to live in one of these states, you can legally order these drinks online and have them shipped right to your doorstep.

But what about the other states?

For those of you living in states where hemp derived THC drinks are not yet legal, don't despair. The tide is turning, and more and more states are recognizing the potential benefits of CBD. It's only a matter of time before these drinks become widely available across the country.

In the meantime, you can always check with your local laws and regulations to see if there are any loopholes or exceptions that allow for the shipment of CBD products. And who knows, maybe you'll get lucky and find a local retailer who can hook you up with these drinks.

Bottom line

So, is it legal to ship hemp derived THC drinks in the US? The answer is a resounding "yes" for those lucky enough to live in the 43 states and Canada where these drinks are legally available. For the rest of us, it's just a matter of time before we can join in on the fun. In the meantime, stay tuned and keep an eye out for any changes in your local laws. Cheers!
