Growing High-CBD Hemp in Nevada

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”What You Need to Know About Growing CBD Seeds in Nevada” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:left|color:%23a47c3b” use_theme_fonts=”yes” el_class=”hide-desktop”][vc_single_image image=”2763″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” el_class=”hide-mobile”][vc_column_text]Are you a Nevada farmer interested in growing industrial hemp/CBD seeds? If so, there are many things you’ll need to learn before you plunge right in. This crop can be extremely lucrative but you’ll want to study the ins and outs of hemp best practices to ensure a successful crop the first time out. You’ll also want to be up to date on both state and federal regulations.

Did you know it’s a felony to grow hemp in Nevada without a license? If you are interested in getting licensed to grow, produce, or handle hemp, you will need to be licensed by the Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA). And if you’ve previously investigated growing marijuana (no, they are not the same!), you’ll be relieved to know the licensing fees are much less to grow industrial hemp/CBD seeds.

Other important info about growing industrial hemp/CBD seeds in Nevada

  1. The NDA conducts testing on all active hemp fields to ensure the biomass contains less than 0.3% THC as required by current USDA regulations. If the THC is too high, the crop is deemed “contraband” and must be destroyed.
  2. Using seeds and clones which have been genetically proven is the best way to ensure the crop’s success and the correct level of THC. CBD Seed Co offers the highest quality, most reliable seeds that will grow plants in compliance with these regulations.
  3. An Industrial Hemp Harvest report showing the results of the THC testing must be submitted to the NDA no later than 15 days before the planned harvest.

Where to Get Licensed to Grow CBD In Nevada

Fact is, in Nevada, there are three different applications, depending on what you want to do with hemp. You can receive a license to grow it, a license to grow it specifically to sell the mature seeds, and a license for hemp processing, known as the Industrial Hemp Handler’s Application. With this license, you are allowed to process the plant into any of its many products, the most popular of which at the moment is CBD.

The cost of the licenses are as follows:

  1. Hemp Grower: $500, with a separate acreage fee of $5 per acre.
  2. Hemp Seed Grower: $100 with the same acreage fee as above.
  3. Hemp Handler/processer: $1000

Note that these are annual licenses and must be renewed each year by a specific deadline. Find out more on the Nevada Department of Agriculture’s website. The site contains a wealth of useful information that should definitely be read and digested preferably before applying for the license, and definitely before planting an industrial hemp crop.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Regions of Nevada Where CBD Is Grown

Nevada is cattle country!

And a lot of this state is mountain terrain or literally uninhabitable desert.

But even so, there is also plenty of agriculture in the state, with alfalfa hay being the main crop.

However, more and more farmers are turning to hemp and CBD crops. Hemp is a hardy plant that can grow easily wherever alfalfa can.

Two of the agricultural areas that have already turned to CBD crops are White Pine County and The Great Basin. Hemp is being grown in Carson City as well.

Fact is, CBD seeds and clones can be grown anywhere in Nevada where the land can be irrigated (because the state is the lowest in rain in the nation!), same as other crops.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”2766″ img_size=”300×400″ alignment=”center” css_animation=”fadeInRight” el_class=”hide-mobile”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”5816″ img_size=”300×400″ alignment=”center” css_animation=”fadeInLeft”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Nevada Agricultural Regions for Cultivating Hemp

Nevada has numerous agricultural regions in which hemp can thrive:

  • Humboldt
  • Pershing
  • Washoe
  • Elko
  • White Pine
  • Eureka
  • Lander
  • Churchill
  • Nye
  • Lincoln
  • Clark
  • Mineral

When you’re ready to purchase your CBD seed, make sure to speak to your provider about your agricultural region. You’ll want to make sure that you find the right strains ideal for your climate.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

CBD & Hemp Resources for Nevada Farmers

Joining organizations can help first-time and novice hemp farmers access more networking opportunities. This enables better ways of finding potential processors, buyers, and more.

Nevada-Based Hemp Organizations

  •  Nevada Hemp Association: Formed in 2015, its mission is to support the Research, Creation, and Development of the brand new Nevada Hemp Industry. They are actively looking for new members.

National Hemp Resources

  • Hempstead Project Heart: Hempstead is an educational, environmental, and economic advocate for industrial hemp. This organization strives to raise awareness of industrial hemp for tribes and local communities. By focusing on raising awareness on the benefits of hemp, Hempstead hopes to help redevelop successful hemp economies and connecting tribal, urban, and rural communities. Farmers can find more general information regarding hemp if they’re interested in learning more about the industry and finished product opportunities.
  • National Hemp Association: Membership is available for entrepreneurs, farmers, professors, researchers, manufacturers, investors, organizations, and businesses involved in the hemp industry. This is an excellent resource for beginner farmers and experienced farmers alike looking to joining an extensive network. Since this association serves farmers, processors, businesses, manufacturers, and researchers, you can connect with different individuals from various sectors of the industry. While local organizations are always important, having a national network can help you expand your business and find potential biomass buyers. From member directories to state-specific resources, this is a wonderful starting point.
  • Hemp Industries Association: Hemp Industries Association has worked as a hemp advocacy group for almost 30 years. The organization has fought to legalize and establish hemp as a federal commodity through legal action, advocacy, and education. They offer a great trade association for hemp farmers with reasonable membership pricing. Membership benefits include incredible networking benefits with other individuals in the industry as well as lawmakers. With significant educational resources and highly transparent access to other members, hemp farmers can create connections and find invaluable information.
  • US Hemp Roundtable: This coalition of leading hemp companies and organizations is committed to safe hemp and CBD products. The US Hemp Roundtable works with political officials for passing legislation that supports both hemp farmers and consumers. This organization also provides education and advocacy to help create a viable path for safe, legal hemp-derived products. Gain access to complimentary state action, industry updates, and federal resources when you sign up for their newsletter.
  • US Hemp Authority: Achieve better credibility, compliance, and more by getting certified through the US Hemp Authority. If you’re only interested in growing hemp then selling your biomass to a buyer or processor, this certification is not for you. This resource is for Alabama farmers that plan on producing CBD in-house or would like to sell hemp-derived products. For farms interested in branding themselves and selling directly to consumers, having a US Hemp Authority certification can provide better trust for your customers. Since the CBD industry is currently unregulated, this certification provides assurances that your growing and manufacturing standards are high.
  • US Hemp Growers Association: Gain access to hemp research and incredible resources that help farmers stay up to date on regulatory developments, certified CBD seed, and more. This farmer-specific national organization is great for connecting with other licensed growers and certified crop advisors. They offer a free six-month trial membership and have various membership levels to choose from. With comprehensive educational resources, this can be a great jumping-off point for novice hemp farmers. US Hemp Growers Association also provides extensive industry and regulatory resources in addition to events you can attend.
  • American Trade Association for Cannabis and Hemp: The trade association is a great place for both marijuana and hemp industry professionals. Their mission is to professionalize industry representation. Unlike the other hemp-specific associations, this one provides support for both cannabis industries. This can provide a wonderful networking opportunity for fellow individuals in the hemp industry as well as the marijuana industry. By focusing on advocacy and education, ATACH hopes to make cannabis mainstream and provide professional industry representation.

Hemp Biomass Selling Tips for Nevada Farmers

  • Hire a hemp broker: There are licensed hemp brokers that can help you negotiate the best price for your hemp biomass. You’ll want to look for an experienced individual with many connections in the industry and a great track record.
  • Presell your biomass: This is an ideal option since the window for selling your harvested biomass is short. Having a buyer lined up can help alleviate stress post-harvest while giving you the competitive advantage of growing specific strains that potential buyers are looking for.
  • Sell directly to buyers: If you have the connections, it may be a good idea to cut out the middle man. Selling directly to buyers can help you maximize your profits but it will require more work.
  • Profit-sharing agreements: For farmers interested in joining the hemp industry but don’t have the upfront finances, profit-sharing agreements may be a good option for you. Profit-sharing works by finding a buyer willing to pay for all upfront costs and recoups these expenses after harvest.
  • Hemp future contracts: This type of agreement is signed before you start your season with a set price arranged for your biomass. While the price provided in future contracts is usually less than the price available with the open market, this is a good option for better stability and minimizing fluctuation risks.
  • Networking: Joining a hemp association or attending a hemp trade show can offer networking opportunities for connecting with potential buyers. The more places you can find to network, the more opportunities you’ll find.
