Confused about the legality of growing hemp seed in New Hampshire? So is everyone else. Under federal law, hemp is legal to grow in all fifty states so long as the grower maintains compliance with the state’s research or pilot program. But what if the state doesn’t have a hemp program (like New Hampshire)?
Good news, you can still plant CBD seeds and clones on your New Hampshire farm. Still confused? Don’t worry. In this article, we’ll discuss this further along with other common misconceptions about hemp farming in the Granite State.
The legality surrounding hemp farming is complicated. But in New Hampshire, the laws are even more confusing than other states. That’s because New Hampshire doesn’t have a hemp program. And the New Hampshire Department of Agriculture, Markets, and Food doesn’t provide a whole lot of information for farmers.
We know, it’s frustrating. But that’s why we’re here to help. Here, we’ll discuss some of the most common misconceptions about hemp farming in New Hampshire.
Nope, not true. The 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp cultivation in all 50 states. If a state refuses to adopt a hemp program, farmers can still apply for a license. This is explained in the USDA Interim Rule on Hemp. New Hampshire farmers can obtain a license directly from the USDA instead of the state.
Yes, it’s possible for THC levels to spike in the summer months. But if you start with the right seed that has high CBD ratios and low THC content, it’s unlikely. Just make sure you’re buying seed from a supplier you can trust. And test your crops often.
Yes, hemp seed is more expensive than seeds for other crops. But the profits are also much, much higher. In fact, growing hemp can be more profitable than growing corn, soy, or any other cash crop.
