Simply Crafted is here with the news you can use—and an entirely state-compliant menu.

Welcome to the thrilling world of THC, Minnesota! The North Star State took an interesting, and somewhat unintentional, route to partial legalization, but residents 21 and over can finally enjoy the psychoactive benefits of cannabis without worrying about the law. 

While other legal cannabis states allow more traditional cannabis cultivation, Minnesota does things a little differently—all THC has to be derived from federally-legal hemp. It’s the same species of plant, but because of the guidelines the crop has to fit into, THC extraction gets a little trickier. So with this sudden freedom and the regulations that come along with it, you’ll want a trustworthy hookup that knows hemp inside and out.

Make no mistake, marijuana edibles are legal now in Minnesota

Simply Crafted is giving away free packs of customer favorite CBD + THC High Spectrum Gummies, available in blackberry, watermelon, and peach, with 5mg of delta-9 THC and CBD.

Simply Crafted, a brand that’s been selling high-quality hemp products from their Minneapolis HQ since 2019, has the wisdom and knowledge to bring you the best possible cannabis experience from the moment you step through their doors or land on their website. And because Minnesota is their home state, they’ve formulated all their products to be in compliance with the new state regulations, whether you’re looking for excitement, relaxation, or something more subtle. They’re already one of the state’s most-trusted hemp brands; they even tripled their single-day sales record on July 1st, when the law first went into effect.

Here’s what you need to know about legal hemp-based THC in Minnesota, your product options, and how Simply Crafted makes sure there’s something for everyone.

The deal with legalization in Minnesota

Medical cannabis has been legal in Minnesota since 2014, but recreational THC kind of took the long way around. While they’re the same plant, there are two agricultural categories for cannabis. First, you have cannabis grown specifically for medical and recreational use in legal markets, but that’s still illegal at the federal level. On the other hand, you have hemp, which contains less than .3% delta-9 THC—what people usually mean when they say just “THC”—by dry weight. This distinction came into play when industrial hemp became federally legal to cultivate with the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill.

As long as it’s derived from hemp and stays within limits, Minnesotans 21 and over are free to buy and consume THC.

Since the passage of the bill, hemp producers have gotten extremely creative, starting with CBD products and eventually moving up to more psychoactive alternative cannabinoids like delta-8 THC. More recently, companies that work with hemp have started creating delta-9 THC products, staying within the dry weight limits outlined in the bill.

In an effort to get a handle on the burgeoning alternative cannabinoid market, the Minnesota State Legislature passed a bill setting potency limits for THC products and providing a legal framework for distribution. In doing so, they legalized all THC, as long as each dose doesn’t exceed 5mg and each package 50mg.

To summarize: As long as it’s derived from hemp and stays within limits, Minnesotans 21 and over are free to buy and consume THC.

As a Minnesota-grown business, Simply Crafted has made their products compliant with Minnesota law, giving residents of the North Star State a plethora of options to choose from—so whether you’re looking for an energizing high, deep relaxation, or to avoid psychoactive effects, there’s something for everybody.

Beyond just THC

New to the big wide world of cannabinoids? You might be familiar with THC and CBD, but there are a lot more where that came from, and over the last few years, some of these alternative cannabinoids have become super popular. Some are psychoactive, like delta-8 THC, THC-O, or HHC. Others have more subtle effects, like CBN and CBG. The combination of two or more cannabinoids can unlock some extra benefits, too—this is what scientists call the “entourage effect.”

If you have simple, old-school taste in pot, Simply Crafted’s Delta-9 THC Chocolate is just that: Traditional THC, derived from hemp, in a convenient edible. Of course, traditional cannabis is going to give you more than just delta-9, and if you want to add a little CBD to the mix, the THC + CBD High-Spectrum Gummies have the same, full potency with the addition of CBD for a well-rounded, balanced effect.

This loophole makes hemp-derived delta-9 THC legit

Minnesota’s 5mg-per-dose limit applies to THC, but not to other psychoactive compounds found in cannabis. While HHC is typically less potent than THC, it’s also not subject to the same restrictions. Simply Crafted’s vape pens pack up to two grams of HHC distillate into one package along with dank AF live-resin terpenes. Water-soluble HHC syrups from Simply Crafted let you add an easy-drinking buzz to any beverage with 1000mg HHC and Strawberry Lemonade, Citravana, and Mango flavors to choose from.

Want to see what minor cannabinoids can do? Simply Crafted Sleepytime gummies have a new ratio of delta-8 and CBN with the maximum allowable amount of delta-8 THC—5mg—along with 12.5 mg of CBN. In combination with other cannabinoids, some users swear by CBN for an evening wind-down and a restful night. They contain absolutely no delta-9 THC, making them a great option for those who get a little too jittery for bedtime with traditional cannabis products.

Simply Crafted’s full menu includes THC (both D-8 and D-9), CBD, CBN, CBG, THC-V, and HHC products in a variety of ratios and a smorgasbord of forms—not just vapes and edibles, but drinks, tinctures, topicals, and even flower and pre-rolls—all Minnesota-compliant. You’re bound to find your perfect fit.
