Is Delta 8 THC Legal In Colorado?

As of 01.25.21 the short answer is: No.

Delta 8 THC is currently illegal in Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, Rhode Island, and Utah. Although Delta 8 THC is federally legal, some states have decided to ban the substance. Delta 8 THC is only legal if extracted from Farm Bill compliant hemp that contains no more than 0.3% THC. 

You are not able to purchase Delta 8 THC products in Colorado at the current moment. You can on the other hand, purchase Delta 9 THC products from any cannabis dispensary. This is given that you are 21+ years old and have valid government issued ID.
