Industrial Hemp

Industrial hemp means a plant of the genus cannabis and any part of the plant, whether growing or not, containing a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of no more than three-tenths of one percent on a dry weight basis.
The Industrial Hemp Program registers growers of industrial hemp and samples the crop to verify that the THC concentration does not exceed 0.3% on dry weight basis.
Registration is required for both commercial production as well as for research and development with industrial hemp.
