Minnesota Legalized THC-Infused Beverages and Edibles

Industry News - Minnesota Legalized THC-Infused Beverages and Edibles.

Under the new Minnesota law, individuals older than 21 can now legally purchase THC-infused edibles and beverages. However, edibles, such as gummies or CBD coffee, can have a maximum of 5mg of THC per serving and 50mg per package. 

Furthermore, all THC products must be derived from hemp, although, according to experts, 5 milligrams will produce the same effect whether it’s derived from hemp or marijuana.

The new law doesn’t set a cap on how many CBD and THC products you can buy, nor does it regulate who may sell them. Cannabinoids can also be added to a wide range of consumables and beverages.

Hemp and CBD products were already legal in the North Star state as long as they contain less than 0.3% THC. Yet, the threshold for Delta-8 THC products was not incorporated into state law.

That said, the fact that the majority-Republican Senate has opposed recreational marijuana reform measures in the past raises doubts about whether this move was an accident on their part.

For example, Republican Sen. Jim Abeler claims he believed this legislation would apply only to Delta-8 THC products, not all THC-infused edibles. As you know, unlike Delta-9 THC, Delta-8 doesn’t produce the same “high,” and is technically legal.
