States Where Hemp-Derived Delta 9 THC Is Illegal

Binoid is truly excited to offer our federally compliant delta-9 products to those adults out there looking for a federally legal way to get high off of the most popular cannabinoid of all time.  But, there are still some states that we can’t ship these products to because for one reason or another, they’ve banned hemp-derived delta 9 THC despite it being protected under federal law.  

Let’s take a closer look at these states in order to give you an idea as to why you’re even prohibited from purchasing our delta-9 THC products, and whether or not that may change in the near future.

Many people are surprised to learn that technically, hemp product sales are banned throughout Alaska, meaning that even cannabidiol (CBD) is not allowed to be sold.  Possession, however, is permitted.  The Last Frontier did technically legalize hemp in 2018 along with it being approved for use under federal law, and on top of that, marijuana is legal both for recreational and medical use, with recreational sales first taking place in 2016.

Will Things Change?

Right now, there are no bills pending to make changes to the state’s hemp laws.  The state has their hands full with the licensing of marijuana dispensaries.  


In Idaho, hemp products are legal, but not full spectrum products.  This state strictly requires that all hemp products sold to residents contain 0% THC, which means that federally compliant delta 9 products are completely banned.  The Gem State has also explicitly banned other intoxicating hemp cannabinoids like delta 8, delta 10 and THC-O.  Products are required to state that they contain 0% THC on their label to be sold legally in the state.  Also is worth pointing out that marijuana is strictly illegal, both for recreational and medical use, in Idaho.

Will Things Change?

Right now, there is no effort to change the current laws on hemp products, meaning that for the foreseeable future, hemp-derived delta 9 THC will remain illegal.


Iowa has particularly complicated laws when it comes to cannabis.  Technically, only state-authorized medical marijuana patients are legally permitted to purchase hemp products, including CBD products, from a licensed dispensary.  Despite this, there are CBD shops that are selling hemp products to recreational customers. 

Medical marijuana patients can also register to purchase marijuana products, with the exception of smokable products (flower).  The Hawkeye State has also banned all intoxicating cannabinoids found in hemp, like delta 8 and delta 10, and while they technically permit up to 0.3% delta 9 THC in hemp products, it seems that you cannot purchase them without a medical card.

Will Things Change? 

There is currently no bill on the table that would change the law as it stands in Herky.


Kansas has very strict laws against cannabis, with both recreational and medical marijuana prohibited throughout the state.  While The Wheat State does allow CBD products to be sold, these products must contain 0% THC, which would make federally compliant delta 9 THC products impossible to purchase.  However, medical patients can apply through the state to be able to purchase hemp products that have up to 5% THC in them, although the list of qualifying conditions is particularly limited.

Will Things Change?

Right now, there is no bill on the table that would make full spectrum hemp products, and thus federally compliant delta 9 products, legal in The Sunflower State

What the Overall Hemp Future Hold in These States

As much as we’d love to offer our delta 9 THC products to everyone across the country, the fact of the matter is that at Binoid, we respect the laws of each state, and will not do anything to harm our reputation and break the trust of our customers.  Of course, should these states change their hemp laws soon, we’ll be able to ship our delta-9 products to those residing in those states immediately.
