I am seeking some clarification on the legality of adding cannabinoids to my THC oil. Does anyone know if the law permits us to add additional cannabinoids that came from other sources? Are added cannabinoids required to be extracted from cannabis only or would hemp be ok? This is for recreational use in California.
For example, could I add CBD from hemp to my THC oil extracted from cannabis?
Are non-THC cannabinoids treated the same as terpenes when it comes to formulation? Does the state care about this and do they want to see exactly where each cannabinoid in your oil comes from?
Thanks in advance for any insight. Much appreciated.
Sorry for not including that. This is for California. The law mentions extraction from cannabis but it is unclear on formulations with other cannabinoids. Let’s say I get some CBC or CBN derived from hemp… is there any regulation against using this in my THC oil derived from cannabis?
In WA legally we are allowed to add whatever hemp cannabinoids we want as long as we list it on the sticker. We lobbied the state to do something about all the chinese cbd isolate that was making its way into products a couple years ago and killing the cannabis derived CBD market, and they said “Okay!” and made it legal as long as you said you added it. And you can call it vague ass bullshit to hide the fact that it is coming from hemp not cannabis. The recreational cannabis CBD market has all but vanished since then, which is a bummer because we are subject to much stricter requirements and regulations to produce it than hemp is, which IMO resulted in higher quality and safer CBD product offerings.
