Because cannabis is still under scrutiny, there are limitations and regulations when it comes to shipping products made with Delta 9 THC, the psychoactive ingredient in products derived from cannabis. Fortunately, laws are becoming more THC-friendly, opening up more areas for growing, developing, and yes, Delta 9 shipping.
Can Delta 9 be shipped? Truth is – it matters where you live and also whether it’s hemp derived Delta 9 THC. Some states are still reluctant to allow THC products to be shipped, purchased, or used, so, let’s take a look at Delta 9 shipping and what you can expect.
First, What Is Delta 9 THC?
To understand “What is Delta 9” you need to have a general understanding of what cannabinoids are and what it is that they do. While it can seem like a vast network of confusing terminology, a wide and overwhelming array of CBD products, and complex legalities, it’s all really rather simple if you consider these core concepts:
Cannabis sativa plants have different varieties – some are considered marijuana and some are considered hemp. Hemp plants are less productive of the intoxicating compound THC, but may be higher in other cannabinoids.
CBD products are usually made from hemp.
Cannabinoids are the tiny compounds found in hemp that offer many health and wellness benefits. CBD and THC are two of the most important cannabinoids.
Only one of these compounds is intoxicating: THC. Delta 9 THC is the most abundant and natural form of THC. Hemp-derived Delta 9 is the most popular THC cannabinoid to be used in CBD products. The 2018 Farm Bill makes this legal in all 50 states.
The government regulates THC as a schedule 1 substance. To stay legally compliant with federal law, CBD manufacturers must keep any THC content to 0.3% or less by dry weight of the finished product. At this low level, the intoxicating effects are rather minimal unless you are particularly sensitive to THC.
States have the ability to follow federal law or make their own regulations regarding the manufacture, distribution, and use of any product that contains cannabinoids, particularly THC. It’s wise to check on the legality of Delta 9 in your state before purchasing or shipping any product with Delta 9 in it.
- Shipping schedule 1 substances is legal as long as you abide by the laws of the shipping and receiving states.
Shipping Delta 9 THC Products
On the USPS site, the following instructions are given on how and when it’s OK to ship Delta 9 THC or any other CBD product that contains any type of THC: (Bold emphasis by the author of this article.)
453.37 Hemp-based Products
For purposes of this section, “hemp” shall have the meaning provided under federal law, including Section 10113 of the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, Pub. L.115-334 (7 U.S.C. § 1639o), or any successor provision.
Hemp and hemp-based products, including cannabidiol (CBD) with the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration of such hemp (or its derivatives) not exceeding a 0.3 percent limit are permitted to be mailed only when:
- The mailer complies with all applicable federal, state, and local laws (such as the Agricultural Act of 2014 and the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018) pertaining to hemp production, processing, distribution, and sales; and
- The mailer retains records establishing compliance with such laws, including laboratory test results, licenses, or compliance reports, for no less than 2 years after the date of mailing.
To be compliant in shipping THC products, you must:
Check with the legal restrictions and directions of the shipper – like we presented above for USPS.
Comply with federal law on the types of products: Made from hemp and not marijuana, containing 0.3 percent THC or less by dry weight, also the type of THC some of which may be restricted in some states. Delta 8 THC is one that is considered by some states to be a synthetic form of THC and some states prohibit it.
- Comply with state’s laws on manufacturing, distribution, and use of any THC products (again, specifically, the type of THC.)
Where Can I Buy Delta 9?
These days you can find CBD products nearly everywhere: the grocery store, gas stations, direct marketing vendors, online, or even at the flea market. Where you buy Delta 9 (whether you buy Delta 9 online or in person) is just as important as checking the legalities. This is for several reasons. One, you need to ensure you are getting quality products from a reputable manufacturer or distributor. And two, you need to order from someone you trust to be legally compliant.
Avoid third-party distributors and only purchase directly from the manufacturer, when possible.
Make sure the manufacturer posts Certificates of Analysis (COA) and other materials that show they are doing their due diligence as a reputable company to test each batch of products for legal compliance and quality.
- Avoid purchasing from street vendors, gas stations, or flea markets, as these types of businesses may mask less ethical business practices.

Delta 9 THC Shipping & Receiving Tips
When you buy Delta 9 online, there are a few things to remember. Because Delta 9 products have THC in them, you need to be aware of your responsibility as a consumer on the receiving end of those shipments. You’ll need to pay attention to shipping updates and collect your package as soon as you can.
Prevent Storage Issues – It helps to have your products delivered when you may have a day off and can ensure you’re at home to receive them – or have them delivered to a mail hub that’s indoors. This ensures your products will not degrade by being left out on your doorstep in the sun. Delta 9 THC products and other CBD products need to be stored in a cool environment that’s not overly humid and certainly out of direct sunlight.
Prevent Theft and Access to Children – Another reason to collect your products immediately is to keep them out of the wrong hands. Delta 9 products are not meant for anyone under the age of 21. And, you don’t want a sticky-fingered thief to run off with your much-needed CBD relief, either! So, check your updates and collect your products responsibly to save the heartache of a missing package.
