Arkansas may have inadvertently banned hemp with the passage of Senate Bill (SB) 358. Ostensibly, SB 358 was intended to prohibit the production and sale of intoxicating hemp-derived cannabinoid (IHDC) products, like delta-8 THC.
However, the bill went much further by amending the state’s industrial hemp definition, a literal reading of which would limit the delta-9 THC concentration to 0.3% of the CBD concentration, as opposed to 0.3% of the total dry weight basis as in the federal definition of hemp.
