CBD stores on notice amid Greenville crackdown on hemp products, THCPosted by On

Owners of CBD businesses are looking over their shoulders after a Greenville County law enforcement initiative to crack down on hemp products was announced in early February.

During a Feb. 7 press conference at the Greenville County Courthouse, 13th Circuit Solicitor Walter Wilkins and Greenville County Sheriff Hobart Lewis announced a drug enforcement unit will begin cracking down on retailers selling CBD delta-9 products over 0.3% THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive component of cannabis.

Wilkins and Lewis also announced those selling products with delta-8 and delta-10 compounds of cannabis will also risk prosecution, although these compounds fall into a murkier legal category. In 2018, U.S. Congress passed the Agriculture Improvement Act or “Farm Bill” that removed hemp products as a controlled substance, which means any cannabis derivatives with less than 0.3% THC are federally legal.
