It’s no secret that people love weed. If you’re selling, people will buy. If you’re not in a legal state, though, selling marijuana can be extremely risky. Ready to quit selling weed? Wondering how to stop selling weed? Read on to find out how you can get a legal, legitimate start in the cannabis business.
Legal Alternatives to Selling Drugs
At this point, you’ve probably heard of Delta-8. It’s also called D8, Delta 8 THC, or even “diet weed” or “weed light.” Delta8 is really similar to Delta-9 THC (what most people are thinking of when they think of “THC” or “pot”). Both chemicals are psychoactive, meaning that they will get you high. However, Delta-8 usually produces a much more mild, chilled-out body high. It’s a great alternative to weed for people who are looking for something mellower, for people who get overwhelmed by the effects of Delta 9, or for people who don’t live in a legal state but still want to get baked. And best of all—Delta-8 is legal in most states, even ones where medical marijuana or recreational marijuana haven’t been legalized.
The fact that Delta-8 is fully legal in most states is great news for a bunch of reasons. It means that most people now have easy, safe, legal, and affordable access to THC products. Whether they use THC as part of their wellness routine or just like to unwind with a little bit of the good kush at the end of the day, now they can.
It’s also good news for the cannabis industry as a whole. D8 has opened all kinds of doors for cannabis and the people who love it, and it’s also opening minds. Now that D8 is legal, many people are trying THC for the first time without the stigma or fear of getting caught. The future of cannabis looks bright-- or should we say it looks lit?
Finally, the fact that Delta-8 THC is legal in most states is good news for you, too. There’s a whole new industry filled with great opportunities for people who are trying to figure out how to stop selling weed. Now, it’s possible to start a career in the weed industry without breaking a single law.
As a side note: there are a ton of other totally legal cannabinoids out there, if you really want to carve out your niche selling legal cannabis. Delta-10 is legal in all the same places that Delta-8 is, but it has more of an energizing and uplifting effect. Think about it this way: if D8 feels like an indica, then D10 feels like a sativa. THCo is up to 3x stronger than the Delta-9 THC, and some people report an almost psychedelic high, similar to a microdose of magic mushrooms. THCh:THCjd is up to 10x stronger than D9, and THCp is up to 33x stronger. All of those cannabinoids are legal in most places, too! It seems crazy, but they’re all hemp derived so they’re all legal under the 2018 Farm Bill (which you can learn all about on our blog). If you live somewhere where both D8 and D9 have been banned, don’t worry—you can still make money selling weed legally. HHC is another rare cannabinoid that’s usually about 75% as strong as D9. It’s one of the most similar cannabinoids to D9, in terms of how it feels. And, because it’s not technically a THC compound, it’s legal in all 50 states! No matter where you are in the USA, there’s a way for you to make a safe and legal living selling weed.
You can read more about all of those different rare cannabinoids on our blog if you want to learn more right away. If not, save it to look at later and read on for more information about how you can sell pot legally.
How to Make Money Legally Selling Weed
Here’s what you clicked to find out! It’s easier than you think to sell weed legally, and there are a few different ways you can do it.
If you’re just starting out and don’t want to make a commitment or investment up-front, you can join our affiliate program. As a part of our affiliate program, you’ll get a unique code that you can then promote in any way you want. That code will get all of your customers 15% off their first Bay Smokes purchase, and you will earn anywhere between 10%-20% of every single purchase they make. If you have a following on social media, know a lot of people who are into cannabis, or are just a great salesperson, you can make a good amount of money through our affiliate program alone! You can advertise and promote your unique code in basically any way you want, and the more creative you get, the more sales you’ll make.

And if you become a top performer on our team of affiliate ambassadors, you’ll have access to special opportunities and deals that nobody else will even know about. With no up-front cost and no fees to pay, what are you waiting for?
If you’re ready to take the next step into the legal cannabis business, you can become a D8 wholesaler. This process is super easy too. All you’ll have to do is sign up for a Delta-8 wholesale account, enter some information, and wait to get approved. After that, you can order products at Delta 8 wholesale prices that you’ll then be able to sell at retail prices. (If you’re not familiar, retail prices are usually more than twice the wholesale THC price. Talk about profits!)
In a state that restricts cannabis? No worries. Most of the products that we carry are legal in most states, and we even have a few products that are legal in all 50 states. Even though everything we carry is totally legal, it’s still a good idea to keep the paperwork on you if you decide to go the wholesale route. What do we mean by paperwork? On every one of our product pages, you’ll see at least one image with a full page of lab test results. These lab tests, or COAs, confirm a few things. First of all, they tell you the exact cannabinoid makeup of each product. This is great in case you ever need to prove that a product contains less than the legal limit of THC. Every single item we carry is made up of less than .3% THC by dry weight, which is the federal limit laid out in the 2018 Farm Bill. By keeping the paperwork easy to access, you’ll be able to prove that what you stock is Delta-8 or another legal rare cannabinoid. This way, you’ll be protecting yourself and your business from potential legal issues.
Our COAs also contain information about the safety and purity of our products. Unlike marijuana, which is unregulated in states where it hasn’t been legalized, you’ll be able to prove to yourself and to your customers that your cannabis products are totally free from heavy metals, fungus, pesticides, and other nasty chemicals that we don’t want anywhere near our smoke sesh—and we know you don’t either.
In order to really get your wholesale weed business booming, you’ll need to treat it like a real business. After all, it is one! You’ll need to pay taxes and will be able to take deductions on your new business. It’s also a good idea to start an LLC (or limited liability company) and open a business bank account. Before you know it, you’ll be a cannabis mogul. And the best part is—it’s totally legal. Selling legal weed like D8 and other rare cannabinoids is the best option if you want to ensure a safe and successful future. Think of all that you’ll be able to accomplish with your weed business if you’re not worried about going to jail or getting into other legal trouble! Yeah, weed is great—but legal weed and personal safety is even better.

Whether you’re ready to start your business right now this second or you want to try some Bay Smokes cannabis products yourself before investing, it’s super easy to get cheap legal weed online.
There are a ton of online head shops and online smoke shops these days, but why keep searching when you’re already reading an article from the best? It’s easy to place an order and have legal weed shipped right to your door.
First, you’ll need to make sure that Delta-8 THC (or whichever cannabinoid you want to buy) is legal in your state. You can check our blog for a quick list with some general guidelines, but we recommend talking to a legal professional just to make sure. If you try to check out and you’re not in a state where D8 is fully legal, then there won’t be any shipping options for you.

The hardest part of the process is going to be waiting for your cannabis mail to arrive, but you can use that downtime to start figuring out your business strategy and generating hype around your new business venture.
Once you’ve ordered from a reputable source, printed out your lab reports and COAs for easy access, and have the product on hand, then you’re ready to go! This part is up to you—get out there and start selling. Or—get out there and let the legal weed sell itself!
