Prohibits the labeling, advertising, or marketing of any untrue “health-related statement,” which is defined as a “statement related to health . . . [that] suggests a relationship between the consumption of industrial hemp or industrial hemp products and health benefits or effects on health.”

THC (or “THC and comparable cannabinoid”) is broadly defined to include (1) tetrahydrocannabinolic acid; (2) any tetrahydrocannabinol, including Delta-9 THC (the molecule traditionally recognized as THC), as well its isomers Delta-8 THC and Delta-10 THC; and (3) any other cannabinoid (except CBD), that the California Department of Health (the Department) determines causes intoxication. The Department may exclude from the definition of THC any THC isomer that does not cause intoxication.
