Is Delta 9 THC Legal to Buy in New Hampshire?
If you are up on the hemp laws in the United States, you’re probably aware that the 2018 Farm Bill federally legalized hemp. However, this poses a question—is Delta 9 THC legal in New Hampshire?
As of writing this the answer is yes! Similar to federal law, New Hampshire passed House Bill 459-FN, making hemp-derived products legal in the state, including Delta 8, Delta 9, and CBD.
According to the Farm Bill and New Hampshire’s hemp laws, you can legally purchase products containing hemp-derived Delta-9 THC as long as the concentration is at or below 0.3% on a dry weight basis.
Let’s dive into more specifics of the bill:
Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:
306:1 Findings. The general court finds:
- Hemp has been continuously cultivated for millennia, is accepted and available in the global marketplace, and has numerous beneficial, practical, and economic uses, including: high-strength fiber, textiles, clothing, bio-fuel, paper products, protein-rich food containing essential fatty acids and amino acids, biodegradable plastics, resins, nontoxic medicinal and cosmetic products, construction materials, rope, and value-added crafts.
- Hemp cultivation will enable the state of New Hampshire to accelerate economic growth and job creation and promote environmental stewardship.
439-A:1 Purpose. The intent of this chapter is to define hemp so that farmers and other businesses in the New Hampshire agricultural industry can take advantage of this market opportunity afforded by the passage of the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018.
439-A:2 Definitions. In this chapter:
- "Cannabidiol" or "CBD" is a phytocannabinoid extracted from hemp plants.
- “Hemp products” means all products made from hemp, including cloth, cordage, fiber, food, fuel, paint, paper, construction materials, plastics, seed, seed meal, seed oil, and certified seed for cultivation.
- “Hemp” means the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of the plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration (THC) of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.

Marijuana shall not include hemp grown, processed, marketed, or sold under RSA 439-A.
What’s Delta-9 THC?
Thorough research shows that over 100 cannabinoids can be extracted from the hemp plant. Each of these has different effects on the human body.
You may have heard of some of the most popular constituents, including:
- Delta-9 THC
- Delta-8 THC
- Cannabidiol (CBD)
Delta-9 THC, otherwise known as Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, can be found in both the hemp and marijuana plant. You may have heard this cannabinoid associated with “weed”, but it must be sourced from marijuana or at a concentration higher than 0.3% per dry weight to be labeled as such.
What Are the Effects of Delta 9 THC?
Since we know that all cannabinoids are likely to cause different effects, this may leave you with a couple of questions. What effects does Delta-9 edibles have on the body?
You can’t pinpoint exactly how it will make you feel. However, some cannabis enthusiasts have said they’ve experienced:
How you feel depends on how much you decide to take. The effects may differ for everyone. Then there are factors to consider such as other cannabinoids and even terpenes. For example, our Select Spectrum products contain a blend of cannabinoids, including CBD and Delta-9, that encourage the entourage effect.
If you are trying Delta-9 for the first time, start small. You can always take more if you haven’t reached your desired effects.
What’s the Difference Between Delta 8 and Delta 9?
Although Delta-8 and Delta-9 are both derived from hemp, the effects that they bring on differ. Every cannabinoid is likely going to have different effects on the body, resulting in varying outcomes.
The difference between these two cannabinoids comes down to the molecular arrangement of each. Delta 8 and Delta 9 have the same chemical formula. However, Delta-9 has a chemical bond on the ninth carbon chain, while Delta-8 has a chemical bond on the eighth carbon chain.
Because of this slight difference, Delta 8 may leave you with uplifted feelings, relaxation, and an overall sense of wellbeing, while the effects of Delta 9 may differ.

Delta-9 affects every person differently, and some have reported feeling a bit “overwhelmed” after taking too much.
If you are trying Delta-9 products for the first time, start small. If you think you’ve accidentally taken too much, find something to comfort yourself. Some activities we recommend are taking a walk, listening to music, or reading your favorite book.
