What is Industrial Hemp?

Industrial hemp means a plant of the genus Cannabis and any part of the plant, whether growing or not, containing a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration of no more than three-tenths of one percent (0.3%) on a dry weight basis.  

Under State and Federal law, the CDA tests for total THC through the process of post-decarboxylation.

The Colorado Department of Agriculture's Industrial Hemp Program regulates only the cultivation of industrial hemp.  The Department also administers a certified seed program. 

The Industrial Hemp Program does not have jurisdiction over the processing, sale or distribution of industrial hemp.

Application Fees are Non-Refundable
