You are a hemp handler if you process hemp into commodities or products including smokable hemp.
Register before growing or handling hemp
All registrations expire on December 31 of the calendar year and are not pro-rated at any time during the calendar year.
You must have a copy of your registration number before growing or handling hemp. Hemp registration applications submitted with complete and accurate information can take as long as four weeks to process. Applications containing incomplete or inaccurate information can take longer.
Additional registration is needed for those wishing to produce or handle agricultural hemp seed. The agricultural hemp seed production registration must accompany either a grower or handler registration and is an option on both applications to include.
