Slumber CBN Delta 8 Product Line Remain Legal in Texas
What is Delta-8?
Delta-8 (delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol) is a compound that is more similar to THC, the main compound in cannabis that gets you sleepy/relaxed. Delta-8 consumers tend to report similar, yet slightly potent, effects as THC such as drowsiness and relief from some symptoms such as pain*.
Consuming Delta-8 in combination with CBN may be the ideal partner to combat insomnia for some. As with any other natural sleep aid or hemp supplement, consult your physician, as there is a chance that it could cause adverse reactions for some people.
Understanding the current state of Delta-8 in Texas
Up until October 15, 2021 any CBD retailers in Texas were able sell high mg Delta-8 products, as it followed in accordance to the 2018 Farm Bill a 2019 Texas state law, House Bill 1325, both of which legalized growing and selling hemp-based products.
Understanding the 2018 Farm Bill is important because it changed the definition of “lawful marijuana extracts” to include any extract that has lower than 0.3% of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

This led to a flood of companies and products that contained high mg of Delta-8, marketing it’s a legal THC product available for consumers to consume in the state of Texas. Delta-8 has become a top-selling product because of its ability, users say, to produce the “high” effect of marijuana.
So is Delta-8 really Banned in the state of Texas?

DSHS said its notice regarding Delta-8’s status in Texas as a controlled drug was to clear up the “confusion” regarding delta-8. Here’s what the department’s site now says:
“Texas Health and Safety Code Chapter 443 (HSC 443), established by House Bill 1325 (86th Legislature), allows Consumable Hemp Products in Texas that do not exceed 0.3% Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). All other forms of THC, including Delta-8 in any concentration and Delta-9 exceeding 0.3%, are considered Schedule I controlled substances.”
From this statement, Delta-8 is considered the same as
Slumber CBN has remained compliant before and after new ruling
Slumber CBN’s founder Richard Barnes says, “When we founded Slumber our goal and objective was to provide a product that would comply with the law, so we could give our customers the highest quality products to help them sleep better, regardless of where they live.”
While Delta-8 may be banned on a state-by-state basis (particularly in states where there is access to Dispensaries), Slumber products contain low levels of Delta-8 (0.3% THC).
This means if you currently live in the state of Texas and are looking for a compliant product, Slumber may offer the perfect solution.
