You may have recently heard about Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear’s push to legalize medical marijuana in Kentucky. Of course, that is only a partial representation of the full reality.
What Governor Beshear is trying to achieve is legalization of medical marijuana for a certain subset of the population.
For the most part, this requires having a chronic illness or other debilitating condition for you to be exempt from being charged for possessing marijuana. Also, the marijuana cannot exceed eight ounces.
Oh, and another thing—the marijuana must have been legally bought outside of the state of Kentucky in a state where marijuana is actually legal. Be sure to keep that receipt, because if you lose it then you will not be eligible to be pardoned for possessing marijuana in the state of Kentucky.
On top of all that, you are going to need a special note from a licensed health care provider that specifies that your condition indeed does warrant the use of marijuana.
Medical Marijuana Is Not the Only Form of Medical Cannabis
All of the above, more or less, sums up the state of medical marijuana in the state of Kentucky. That is, if Beshear’s hopes are realized, provided Kentucky legislators are on board with this plan.
Decriminalizing medical marijuana for a small subset of the Kentucky population is just one step toward its legalization in Kentucky.
But something that is key to realize is that there is a difference between medical marijuana and medical cannabis.
Technically speaking, medical marijuana is just one form of medical cannabis. Cannabis plants come in different varieties, but the classification that matters the most is the difference between hemp plants and marijuana plants.
The difference between the two is in THC content. Marijuana is above a 0.3% THC threshold while hemp is below that threshold. This is significant because THC is what is responsible for creating the cannabis “high” that so many people are drawn to the plant for.
However, hemp’s low THC content does not mean that it still does not offer the effects of THC, which can be medicinal as much as they are recreational.

If it is recreational cannabis that you seek, check out your legal recreational cannabis options in Kentucky below.
You have plenty of options here.
See our Delta 9 page for gummies, beverages, and more, all of which contain THC.
Same goes for our Delta 8 products page.
(Delta 8 and Delta 9 are just different varieties of THC, the way hemp and marijuana are different varieties of cannabis.)
A key thing to know about recreational cannabis is that just because it has CBD does not mean that it is a wellness product.
CBD and Delta THC work in combination to create what is called “the entourage effect”, where the pleasant effects of the two cannabinoids are enhanced by each other.
In addition, potentially unpleasant effects, such as nausea and anxiety, will be inhibited. This makes the CBD+THC combos ideal for first-time or inexperienced THC users.
