SAN DIEGO, CA, May 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire – Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA) (the “Company”), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States that launched the world’s first-ever cannabis-derived nutraceutical products, brands, and supply chain, announced today that it applauds the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for deeming Delta-8 THC, a compound found in hemp, to be federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill.
In celebration of this announcement, Kannaway®, a cannabis industry leader for more than 12 years, continues to expand its line of hemp-derived products with a new Delta-8 Liquid and Delta-8 Gummies. Delta-8 THC is a naturally-occurring cannabinoid found in the hemp plant, and new studies show that it may provide users with a variety of unique wellness benefits.
The Ninth Circuit’s ruling is great news for the industry and Kannaway® because there has been significant consumer interest in this hemp compound in recent years, and analysts predict that Delta-8 THC products could become the fastest-growing segment of the “hemp-derived” products market. According to The Brightfield Group, social listening data shows online conversations about Delta-8 grew 163% from December 2020 to April 2021.
“The 2018 Farm Bill made it clear that hemp with a THC level of less than 0.3% is federally legal,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Blake Schroeder. “As the creator of the world’s first cannabidiol-based product, we are proud of our accomplishments and the clarity that the Farm Bill provides. We applaud the Ninth Circuit for its decision which correctly applied the Farm Bill language to Delta-8. As a leader of innovation in the industry, allowing free access to all legal cannabinoids is something we celebrate, and we are excited about our new Delta-8 products.”
