But just like any business endeavor, it is recommended to have a business plan in place. Especially, obtaining the license from said state so you can not encounter legal action against you. The state should have a website that directs this issue. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp amanda.tolar Waynesburg, United States (US) 0 Questions 313 Answers 0 Best Answers 660 Points View Profile amanda.tolar 2020-07-08T15:20:39-04:00Added an answer on July 8, 2020 at 3:20 pm It is! The Hemp Farming Act of 2018 (commonly referred to as the Farm Bill) was passed, and the provisions therein went into effect at the end of 2018. This Act removed hemp from the Schedule 1 list of controlled substances and reinstated its presence as a regular agriculture commodity, along with products made from it. The particulars for growing vary from state to state, though, and it looks a bit different in terms of procedures for licensing. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wavess 0 Questions 234 Answers 0 Best Answers 495 Points View Profile wavess 2020-07-08T10:51:05-04:00Added an answer on July 8, 2020 at 10:51 am Yes, it is legal to grow hemp in Ohio.

As of Jan 2020, it sure is! Farmers have to grow at least 1,000 plants on at least ¼ of an acre based on the Ohio Department of Agriculture rules that were approved back in December 2019. Plus, there’s a proposed $100 application fee for farmers to get a license to actually grow the hemp and $500 more for each location. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
