And it is perfectly legal in Michigan, similar to all other states in the US. However, you will need to check on the specific rules and procedures applicable to Michigan. For instance, you need to apply for a license before you start growing. You’ll also have to get the plants tested to confirm the THC composition. And there’s a fee for registration and the license. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp acevedobenitez 0 Questions 182 Answers 0 Best Answers 367 Points View Profile acevedobenitez 2020-08-03T13:36:42-04:00Added an answer on August 3, 2020 at 1:36 pm Yes, you can grow hemp in Michigan. With the Farms, Bill passed by the federal government in 2018 that made farming hemp legal. It made it possible to grow hemp all off the US.

You have to state where you are growing and have it within an enclosed area, have it tested for THC, and have to show proof of licensing if requested by government officials or law enforcement.

I’m pretty sure they are still operating under the 2014 hemp pilot program guidelines but are scheduled to change into the 2018 farm bill guidelines sometime this year. 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 560 Points View Profile Abigail 2020-07-17T16:37:53-04:00Added an answer on July 17, 2020 at 4:37 pm Industrial hemp is now licensed in Michigan and the U.S., the central administration is yet developing the laws for national hemp preparation. Till now, Michigan farmers are empowered to grow hemp for study purposes only, following the 2014 Farm Bill. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Hempmaster3000 0 Questions 214 Answers 0 Best Answers 462 Points View Profile Hempmaster3000 2020-07-17T12:14:19-04:00Added an answer on July 17, 2020 at 12:14 pm Yes! But you would have to get a permit first, though. Even then, it is entirely up to your county. A lot of counties are still not issuing permits, and also, if they do, they are putting such a high price on them that the farmers can not afford them just because there is still this stigma around hemp. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wordsmith 0 Questions 256 Answers 0 Best Answers 531 Points View Profile wordsmith 2020-07-13T17:35:01-04:00Added an answer on July 13, 2020 at 5:35 pm The Public Act 641 of 2018 in Michigan allows cultivating and growing of hemp.

Their Public Act 641 in 2018 did authorize growing and cultivating industrial hemp. Law 641 requires that framers register and get a license to grow, process, and handle industrial, low THC hemp. 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.
