Orland Park, IL – Orland Park has officially extended its prohibition on synthetic and psychoactive substances to include Delta 8 THC, a compound often found in vape products. 

The decision by the Orland Park Village Board aims to address the complexities surrounding the regulation and safety of this cannabinoid, which is chemically similar to THC but derived from CBD through synthetic processes.

Delta 8 THC has been gaining popularity as an alternative to traditional THC due to its milder psychoactive effects. However, its synthetic nature and the lack of regulatory oversight in its production and sale have raised concerns about its safety and legality. This substance is commonly found in vape pens, where it is marketed as a legal alternative capable of delivering similar effects to marijuana.

The new ordinance is part of Orland Park’s broader initiative to combat the availability of unregulated psychoactive substances in the community, including Kratom, Tianeptine, and Other Psychoactive Substances. Officials are urging residents to be vigilant about the ingredients in vape products and to support efforts that protect public health from potentially hazardous synthetic drugs.
