Utah has a long history of having agriculture as a central part of its economy. Livestock, corn, wheat, and nursery products all thrive in the state’s lush environment, and are especially important to rural regions. It’s no wonder, therefore, that many farmers in Utah have taken a liking to the idea of growing CBD seed.
In Utah, CBD seed and clones are legal to cultivate within state borders. However, you must go through the process of obtaining a license and, afterwards, adhere to regulations set in place by the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food. Here’s how to get started.
