Industrial Hemp Licensing, Registration and Fees


You are required to have a license to grow or process industrial hemp. The grower license allows you to plant and harvest industrial hemp. A processor license allows you to store, handle, and convert industrial hemp into a marketable form. Both are lifetime licenses. If you are processing only hemp that you grow, you need only the grower license. The deadline to appy for a license this year is May 1, 2018.


Growers and processors will also need to register annually with the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection annually to continue growing or processing hemp. Because this is the first year of production, you will apply for your license and register in the same application, either online or on paper. In the future, you will need to register by December 31 to grow or process hemp in the following calendar year. The deadline to register this year is May 1.

Background check

Your licensing and registration forms include a consent form to allow DATCP to conduct a background check on the applicant. If the applicant is a business, the background check will be for the operations manager. You will not be licensed if you have any criminal drug convictions, either federal or in any state.
