Riley County Attorney Barry Wilkerson says his office will enforce a recent attorney general’s opinion limiting the percentage of THC that delta-8 products sold in Kansas can have.

Delta-8 THC (tetrahydrocannabidiol) is a psychoactive compound found in cannabis. It is similar to delta-9 THC, which is the active ingredient in marijuana, and can produce similar “highs.” But because of slight chemical differences, delta-8 is legal in Kansas.
