Despite its historical status as the “King” of cannabinoids, THC has seen significant competition from other cannabinoids, most notably CBD. Several factors have converged to create a rapidly developing market in non-THC cannabinoids such as CBG, CBC, THCV, delta-8 THC, and CBN. These factors include the removal of hemp-derived cannabinoids from the Controlled Substances Act, advancements in extraction technology, and an increasingly educated and engaged public. Using the current regulatory landscape of CBD as a jumping-off point, this panel will explore this new market from a regulatory standpoint. We will discuss what these cannabinoids are and how they are likely to be used; whether they will encounter similar regulatory obstacles as CBD in coming to market; and whether we should continue to think of cannabinoids as a unified “block” for regulatory purposes,or if they will each have separate paths.
