What is 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 (THC) concentration of no more than three-tenths of one percent (0.3%) on a dry weight basis.  

Under State and Federal law, the CDA tests for total THC through the process of post-decarboxylation.

The Colorado Department of Agriculture's Industrial Hemp Program regulates only the cultivation of industrial hemp.  The Department also administers a certified seed program. 

The Industrial Hemp Program does not have jurisdiction over the processing, sale or distribution of industrial hemp.

On June 18th Colorado submitted the Colorado State Hemp Management Plan and appendix to the USDA.  View FAQ's about the plan.
