Federal Hemp Program

The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill, Section 10113) directs the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) to issue regulations and guidance to implement a program for the commercial production of industrial hemp in the United States. Find more information on the USDA Hemp Production Program webpage​. ​

States have until January 1, 2022 to begin operating under a plan approved by the USDA. Oregon will continue to operate under current state laws and rules for 2021. ODA submitted a draft hemp plan​ to USDA on October 1, 2021.

The Oregon Department of Agriculture is working with industry, the state legislature, and our federal partners to develop laws and rules to meet the USDA requirements.
