Certain hemp-derived products in Alaska will now be regulated by the state’s marijuana regulatory agency under new rules passed by lawmakers.
The change doesn’t affect all hemp products, only derivatives containing intoxicating delta-8 or delta-9 THC as well as some “so-called ‘full-spectrum’ hemp products intended to help with epilepsy and pain,” according to the Anchorage Daily News.
Some of those “full-spectrum” products include cannabinoids that are limited by Alaska’s industrial hemp program.
Under the new regulations, such products must be approved by Alaska’s Alcohol & Marijuana Control Office and will be available for purchase only in stores licensed to sell MJ.
The new rules take effect Nov. 3, the Daily News reported.
