What are the standards for THC? Is it legal in the U.S. if it is less than 0.3%?
The standards for THC vary from country to country. There are also different standards for the THC content of hemp and products, so let's check them.
【Legal Standard for THC Content in Industrial Hemp】
USA: Less than 0.3
Canada: Less than 0.3
New Zealand: Less than 0.35
Russia: Less than 0.1
Switzerland: Less than 1
Austria: Less than 0.35 to 1 (varies by state)
China: Less than 0.1
Thailand: Less than 1
Japan: 0% (use of plants containing THC is illegal)
In many other European countries, only hemp with less than 0.2% THC content is allowed to be used as industrial hemp. There is also a growing market for CBD products in Asia, but few hemp cultivation permits have been issued and only a few countries have legalized the use of THC-containing products for taste.
In the US, the Farm Bill 2018 was revised in 2018 to allow industrial hemp use. The standard for industrial availability at this time is hemp with a THC content of 0.3%.
Until now, the word "hemp" was not well known in the United States. This farm bill is a good opportunity to spread the awareness that hemp with THC content of 0.3% or less is called hemp to distinguish it from marijuana.
【Legal standards for THC content in products】
In the United States, CBD products containing less than 0.3% THC are legal.In the United States, CBD products containing less than 0.3% THC are legal. The THC content is the same as that of industrial hemp, and most full-spectrum products are labeled as containing less than 0.3% THC.
In Europe, the THC concentration standard is less than 0.2%, and in Japan, the law only allows CBD products with 0% THC to be used.
【Note on THC content】
Products labeled as containing less than 0.3% THC do not necessarily contain 0.3% THC. Cannabinoids, including CBD, are only natural ingredients, and even though there are standards for industrial use, it is difficult to accurately stabilize their composition. This is why some products have been found to contain little or no THC, even though they are listed as full spectrum.
If you want to know the exact THC content of a product, it is recommended to check the ingredient analysis chart provided by each manufacturer.
