Virginia Lawmakers Advance New, Stricter Rules for Delta-8

The bill targets permits and packaging laws.

Virginia lawmakers have advanced new, stricter rules for hemp-derived cannabinoids like delta-8.

The bill requires businesses selling hemp extract or food containing a hemp extract to have a valid permit from the state.

The state will limit hemp-based products to 0.3% THC and two milligrams of THC per package.

The bill will also require clearer packaging labels with percentage and milligrams of THC per package and per serving.

It would prohibit companies from marketing products as being able to cure, treat or prevent disease.

Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin is expected to sign the bill, according to the Virginia Mercury.
