Vermont this week adopted emergency rules banning cannabinoids including delta-8 and delta-10.
The state’s cannabis control board voted to prohibit production, manufacture, marketing, transfer, and sale of hemp-derived intoxicating cannabinoids.
The rules cover all isomers, variants, analogs, and mimetics of delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol created by chemical manipulation.
They also cover any products that have been chemically or mechanically concentrated or otherwise derived from hemp and then artificially introduced onto or into any product.
Exceptions are included for products that are evaluated, registered, and regulated by the board and pharmaceutical drugs approved by the FDA.
The board said in the coming months it will develop regulations covering hemp-derived products.
But in the meantime it’s using the emergency rules as a stopgap measure to keep unregulated hemp-derived products off the market.
