Delta-8 Temporarily Legal in Texas, Again

Texas CBD dispensaries are feeling the see-saw of the court system as the legality of Delta-8 THC changes sides yet again.  On October 15, 2021, the Department of State Health Services listed the chemical as a controlled substance.  Later that month, a circuit court judge denied a petition for a temporary restraining order to enjoin the enforcement of Delta-8 as a controlled substance.  Just yesterday, a Travis County judge granted an injunction filed by an Austin-based CBD dispensary that temporarily prohibits the state from treating delta-8 as a controlled substance.  

So dispensaries in Texas should know that delta-8 remains legal . . . for now.

A Travis County judge temporarily blocked the state from listing delta-8 as a Schedule I drug, which effectively made it illegal. The cannabis extract became popular because users say it produces the “high” effect of marijuana.
