Along with some 33 other states, industrial hemp was legalized with the passage of the Farm Bill in 2014. The initial pilot program was started with a view to helping farmers grow the crop, rather than legalizing the consumption of the end product. It was designed to boost employment, provide farmers with opportunities to grow sustainable products, and boost economic activities. The industry is now truly booming in North Carolina. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Abe Melbourne, Australia 2 Questions 238 Answers 0 Best Answers 561 Points View Profile Abe 2020-07-23T08:34:47-04:00Added an answer on July 23, 2020 at 8:34 am Hemp production has been authorized in North Carolina, but only as part of the state’s leadership program as deducted under federal law.

Like most states involved, you will need to obtain a license from the state and follow their guidelines for growing. Once obtained, you will need to pay fees each year, but besides that, it is a fairly easy process and regulations to follow. Have a business plan in place and identify any hurdles you may need to overcome, so you start off on the right path. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Moogdummy 0 Questions 246 Answers 0 Best Answers 521 Points View Profile Moogdummy 2020-07-11T13:05:08-04:00Added an answer on July 11, 2020 at 1:05 pm Yes, it is legal since the 2018 farm bill passed; it made it legal for all 50 states.
