​​​​Oregon Hemp Laws

Proposed Hemp Rules

The department proposes to adopt these rules to clarify existing hemp program rules, add additional options for hemp growers including trimming under specific circumstances as well as market options like microgreens, and create additional flexibility for those who miss the grower license application deadline. Additionally, the rules need to be cleaned up to reflect sunset dates of several statutes.
