Tennessee Regulations for Growing CBD Clones & Seeds

When weighing whether to become a hemp farmer here in Tennessee and even once you are, the rules in that state you live in are really important to be aware of and abide by. In Tennessee, you need a license to grow hemp through the Tennessee Department of Agriculture. The application period for a license to grow hemp is now open year-round. Grower applications can be found here. TDA licensed more than 2,900 farmers in 2019 and those licenses will expire on June 30 in 2020 and every 30th of June thereafter.  However, there are extensive changes coming later in 2020. One of the biggest changes is the hemp program will no longer issue licenses for certified seed breeders. But, manufacturing, distributing, or labeling seed will still need to be licensed through the TDA Ag Inputs section. If you have any questions, you can reach the hemp department directly at industrial.hemp@tn.gov or call 615-837-5137.

Here are some useful links to help get you started:

National Resources for Hemp Regulations

  • National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA): This federal agency provides leadership and funding for programs that advance agriculture-related sciences. They are a researched-based organization that invests in and supports initiatives to ensure the long-term viability of agriculture, now including industrial hemp and CBD. NIFA applies an integrated approach to ensure that groundbreaking discoveries in agriculture-related sciences and technologies reach the people who can put them into practice.
  • USDA: The United States Department of Agriculture is in charge of creating regulations for the industrial hemp industry and the growing of CBD seeds and clones. Their site is comprehensive and a must-read for hemp growers and processors. While there is a state program here, farmers looking for licensing in other states without a hemp program can often obtain licensing directly from the USDA. This federal resource is crucial to keep up with in addition to state regulations.
  • FDAThe FDA is currently creating a legal framework for hemp-derived CBD products. For farmers cultivating hemp in order to produce CBD, this can be a great resource. Once the FDA has established its regulatory framework for CBD products, this could potentially impact farmers as well as manufacturers. Farmers that are also processors and manufacturers of CBD products can also find its current instructions on how to stay compliant in terms of labeling, marketing, and more.
  • Vote Hemp: This nonprofit is dedicated to educating legislators and policymakers, advocating for progressive hemp laws, and defending standing policies that inhibit commerce. In addition to advocacy, farmers can utilize this resource for its regulatory information. The website provides comprehensive regulation education by state including ways that you can help with advancing policies. From legal cases to regular political updates, farmers can keep up to date with the ever-changing legal framework.

Tennessee’s Hemp Biomass Transportation Regulations

Tennessee requires individuals to apply for a hemp movement permit prior to transportation of hemp biomass and live plants. You’ll need to fill out this form and submit it to the Tennessee Department of Agriculture for approval prior to transportation. This form must be submitted at least three days in advance to the requested transportation.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Regions of Tennessee Where CBD Is Grown

CBD hemp plants are easier to grow than many other plants because they are very hardy and don’t require as much water as other crops.  However, some areas are better than others to grow high CBD hemp. Tennessee has fantastic farmland.  Soybeans and tobacco are a big crop here in Tennessee and top counties for these crops should work well for hemp too.   This means top counties according to soybean yield will be: Dyer County, Obion County, Gibson County, Weakley County and Lake County.  If looking to use Tobacco as a guide for where hemp will grow, you will find tobacco is grown in sixty-six out of ninety five Tennessee counties.  Meaning, if you have a farm almost anywhere in Tennessee–hemp is a reasonable crop to try your hand at.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”2879″ 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=”5991″ img_size=”300×400″ alignment=”center” css_animation=”fadeInLeft”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

CBD & Hemp Resources for Tennessee Farmers

Learn more about all the different local and federal resources available for hemp farmers on cultivation, CBD regulations, and more. It’s always a good idea for beginner hemp farmers to find a few organizations to join to help network and find the support they need for potential buyers.

Tennessee-Based Hemp Organizations

  • Tennessee Growers CoalitionThe nonprofit organization supports advocacy, awareness, and legislation in the local hemp industry. They work to promote an active coalition among farmers, processors, and anyone involved within the marketplace.
  • Tennessee Hemp Industries Association: The state affiliate of HIA offers networking opportunities for local farmers, businesses, and supporters. Their mission is to help serve the hemp industry and offer viable solutions for its members.
  • Hemp Alliance of TennesseeThe nonprofit trade organization serves one of the largest and most important states for hemp production.

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 Tennessee 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 Tennessee 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. Organizations like Tennesse Hemp Broker can potentially help provide you with buying opportunities.
  • 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.
