THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) Federal Classification

THC is a psychotomimetic compound. By and large it is a psychoactive substance. It can cause changes in perception, mood and other mental states. As such the federal government regulates THC. It is currently classified as Schedule 1 drug.
(Which according to the government, pigeonholes it as a drug with no currently accepted medical use – What?)

Just to note: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a few THC-based medications.

  • dronabinol (Marinol®) and
  • nabilone (Cesamet®)

Does anyone else see the irony here?

Look closely! This flower bud and sugar leaves are covered in trichomes. Trichomes are very delicate hair-like crystal structures. These contain a range of cannabinoids. We do our best to ensure that the crystals are not damaged nor lost during the trimming and curing phase.

What about in the State of New York?

To note: our farm is located in the Northern Catskills, NY

To clarify, in our home state of NY the law is as follows *this is copied directly from the NY Office of Cannabis Management’ website:

  • It is legal for adults 21 years or older to possess 3 ounces of cannabis and 24 grams of cannabis concentrate (edibles, oil).
  • It is legal for adults 21 years or older to consume cannabis in a private home or in most places tobacco can be consumed, with the exception of consumption in a motor vehicle, a private business (such as a restaurant patio), a hookah or “cigar bar,” or on federal property.
  • It is legal for adults 21 years or older to “share” cannabis without compensation, to a person 21 years or older under the legal possession limit, but the sale of a service or commodity associated with the sharing is prohibited, including so-called “gifting.”
