In the wake of the Hemp Farming Act of 2018, hemp was removed from the list of “Schedule I” controlled substances and became an ordinary agricultural commodity; Bay Smokes began partnering with growers throughout the industry to bring federally legal products to consumers. Bay Smokes is a minority-owned, woman-owned small business operating in the U.S., and its mission is to provide transparency and quality while offering federally legal THC products that consumers can trust.
As cannabis consumers themselves, the founders of Bay Smokes had always wished for a milder option to the high-potency THC products on the market. “The legality of standard cannabis in many states, coupled with hemp becoming federally legal, gave us the boost we needed to deliver products that would serve consumers who wanted alternatives to existing cannabinoid or tobacco products,” says CEO William Goodall.
At the heart of Bay Smokes’ products is Delta-8 THC, the molecular cousin to the cannabinoid that makes you high, Delta-9 THC. Federally legal hemp is defined as cannabis with <0.3% Delta-9 by mass, and Delta-8 is derived from this hemp; So yes, it is legal, although specific limitations on hemp-derived products may vary from state to state.
The people behind Bay Smokes are strong supporters of plant medicine and know the benefits of creating a natural, balanced lifestyle. They believe that these values can be realized without sacrificing pleasure or quality. They work with craft growers to ensure high product standards and support other small business owners as they follow their passions.
As firm believers in quality and the natural benefits of using only plant-based ingredients safe to inhale or ingest, Bay Smokes ensures that its website only offers pure, unadulterated hemp cannabinoid products. Their popular cartridges are free from potentially harmful thinning agents, so consumers will never need to worry about MCT, PG, VG, Vitamin-E Acetate, grapeseed oil, or other dilutants in their Bay Smokes purchases.
