Delta 8 THC, a new product on the market, is being called “weed lite.” Unlike your standard marijuana, Delta 8 THC is being sold legally to buyers without a prescription.
“The difference, we’re talking about Delta 9 being cannabis, Delta 8 being available in hemp. If it’s hemp, it is legal. Still gets you stoned and it is made legal under the same laws that made CBD legal,” said Carlos Hermida, owner of the Chillum Glass Gallery and CBD Dispensary in Ybor City.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd says the products are the “next step in the way to stone America.”
