11-Hydroxy-Δ⁹-tetrahydrocannabinol, usually referred to as 11-hydroxy-THC, offers a whole new way to experience the effects of delta 9 THC, acting as the “shortcut” to its high by mimicking the THC metabolite produced in the liver into which delta 9 is converted when we consume it.

Is 11-Hydroxy-THC Federally Legal?

11-Hydroxy-Δ⁹-tetrahydrocannabinol is actually a federally legal cannabinoid because of the federal Farm Bill, which passed in 2018, and had determined that all hemp derivatives legal as long as they contain a maximum of 0.3% delta 9 THC.  11-hydroxy THC is derived directly from delta 9 THC, but ultimately is considered a different compound.

Is 11-Hydroxy THC Legal in All 50 States?

Now, we’re aware that 11-hydroxy THC is federally legal, but what is its legality then, under different state laws?  Good question, we know.  Because 11-hydroxy THC is technically a psychoactive isomer cannabinoid, it’s prohibited in all states that have outlawed delta 8 THC.  Isomers are cannabinoids produced by rearranging the molecules of cannabidiol (CBD), and that’s how 11-hydroxy THC is produced.  With all that said, let’s look at each state to see what the law says.

                                                                          Guide for Using 11 HXY Legally

                                                                          It goes without saying that if you’re going to buy and consume 11 HXY, you want to do so legally, and avoid buying a non-compliant product by mistake.  Here are some tips that will help you enjoy this new cannabinoid while complying with federal and state laws.

                                                                          #1: Make Sure Your State Allows It

                                                                          Like we said, 11 HXY may or may not be legal depending on the state you live in, and on top of that, state laws regarding hemp-derived psychoactives can change at any time.  So, always be certain that your state does permit you to purchase 11 HXY.

                                                                          #2: Make Sure It’s Hemp-Derived

                                                                          11 HXY is only legal if it is derived from the hemp plant, as marijuana remains a federally illegal substance.  Fortunately, you’re really unlikely to find marijuana-derived Delta 11 unless you’re shopping on the black market. At Binoid, all of their 11 HXY products are 100% derived from hemp, and federally compliant overall.

                                                                          #3: Look for a Lab Analysis

                                                                          Always read the third-party lab report before buying an 11 HXY product.  All 11 HXY products, and hemp products in general, should be lab-tested by a state-authorized facility, and the lab reports should be made accessible to customers. 

                                                                          Not only will this lab report show you whether or not the product is compliant with federal law but will also show you whether or not it contains impurities, how potent it is, which hemp-derived compounds are present in the formula and more.

                                                                          #4: Find Out The Extraction Method Used

                                                                          While the FDA has not banned certain cannabinoid extraction methods, some are safer than others, which is just as important as making sure that they’re legally compliant.  Both pure extraction methods (isolating 11 HXY in the plant) and isomerization methods (rearranging the molecules of legal hemp cannabinoids to convert them into 11 HXY) are generally acceptable extraction methods.

                                                                          #5: Be Mindful of Where and When You Use it

                                                                          It may be legal to purchase 11 HXY in your state, but that may not mean you can use any 11 HXY product anywhere at any time.  For instance, you can still get into trouble for vaping 11 HXY in places where smoking and vaping are prohibited.

                                                                          Can 11 HXY Result in a Failed Drug Test?

                                                                          Now, let’s get back into the practicalities regarding 11 HXY.  One question that we’ve been getting ever since CBD hit the scene is whether or not hemp can cause you to fail a drug test.  Well, here’s where it gets interesting.  Hemp as a whole, in the form of flower or full spectrum hemp, will not usually cause a failed drug test. 

                                                                          This is because the amount of 11 HXY, including both delta 8, delta 9, and other Delta's is so low in hemp that it won’t even register. However, 11 HXY may be a different story, and it is possible 11 HXYproducts will trigger a drug test. That we know. 

                                                                          However, the interesting thing about 11 HXY is that it is not Delta 9 THC, and is therefore should not show up on a Delta 9 drug test. Although, depending on the concentration and if there is Delta 9 on the formula 11HXY will actually show up as a fail on a drug test. The same way as Delta 9 products

                                                                          Where To Buy 11 HXY Vapes & Products In Your State

                                                                          You can find 11 HXY products such as vape cart disposables and more on Binoid's website here! Or you can search “11 HXY” at the top header of their website. Binoid carries 11 HXY vape disposables such as This SlapzCherry Bonkerz and more such as indica or hybrid options.

                                                                          The FDA’s Role In 11 HXY

                                                                          Presently, the FDA has not yet regulated hemp products, even though they are legal.  What this means is that there could come a time when the FDA creates its own guidelines on FDA that are technically not part of state or federal law.  At the moment, hemp products are sold in an unregulated market, which means that companies can essentially do whatever they want when producing hemp-based goods. 

                                                                          This is largely why we have such an enormous selection of product types to choose from when looking for CBD and other hemp derivatives. This means that for the time-being, you can legally buy 11 HXY products (assuming that it is legal in your state) that has not been created with industry regulations. 

                                                                          This is a good thing in that it gives us a wider variety of products to choose from.  But, it also means that you have to be careful when making a purchase, to know for a fact that what you are getting is not just legitimate, but also high in quality and free of impurities and toxic substances that dilute the product formula.

                                                                          How 11 HXY Products Are Made

                                                                          To take the hemp plant and produce 11 HXY products from 11 HXY concentrate, companies can choose a few different ways.  

                                                                          Method #1:Extraction

                                                                          Manually isolating the 11 HXY compound from the hemp’s composition and extract it to create a concentrate.  As you can imagine, extracting a compound that is present in less than 0.1 percent of the plant’s entire makeup is tedious and expensive, because an enormous amount of plant material must be used to produce a fair amount of extract.

                                                                          Method #2: Rearranging Compounds

                                                                          11-Hydroxy-Δ⁹-tetrahydrocannabinol is not a cannabinoid found in the hemp plant, but rather a metabolite produced in the body after delta 9 THC has been consumed.  Delta 9 converts into 11-hydroxy-THC in the liver, as part of the metabolization process in which delta 9 THC eventually breaks down and leaves the body. 

                                                                          Basically, when you consume THC, 11-hydroxy THC emerges as the first stage of your body breaking down the cannabinoid. If you’ve ever wondered why THC edibles have such a distinctive feeling in the body, 11-hydroxy THC is to thank.  Ingesting THC means that your liver is given the task of processing it before releasing it into the bloodstream. 

                                                                          During this stage, the liver turns THC into 11-hydroxy THC, which allows for a completely one-of-a-kind type of high that’s unique from other delivery methods.  11-hydroxy THC can be replicated exactly through the use of solvents, so that the body recognizes it as this modified form of THC regardless of the delivery method that it comes in.

                                                                          Can 11 HXY THC Be Discovered on a Lab Test by Law Enforcement?

                                                                          Another concern that many have is that 11 HXY may be read if analyzed by a lab.  Let’s say a cop pulls you over and discovers your 11 HXY vape oil.  Then, they confiscate it and test it to see whether or not it’s legal.  Again as stated before, because 11 HXY and 11 HXY products are not Delta 9 THC products, that means it will likely not spike anything on a drug test.

                                                                          For now, it looks like you can carry 11 HXY vape cartridges and other products without worry. However, this does not mean using the products irresponsibility. Still do not operate machinery after taking 11 HXY. 

                                                                          11 Hydroxy THC Final Thoughts

                                                                          The good news is that in most states, 11-Hydroxy-Δ⁹-tetrahydrocannabinol is perfectly legal, with no restrictions that determine what you can buy or how much of it you can possess.  If you live in a state in which this cannabinoid is legal, we invite you to check out the federally compliant and fully lab-tested 11 HXY products available at Binoid.
