The Oregon Department of Agriculture's Hemp Program provides another opportunity for Oregon agriculture to grow.
Hemp means all non-seed parts and varieties of the Cannabis plant, whether growing or not, that contain an average tetrahydrocannabinol concentration that does not exceed 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis. (OAR 603-048-0010)
The program ensures that hemp growers, hemp handlers, and agricultural hemp seed producers are registered and that pre- and post-harvest testing of hemp and hemp products are conducted as required by Oregon hemp statutes and regulations.
As the department regulates hemp in Oregon, it is our goal that this program provide:
- assurance of compliance to state laws,
- continued good health, and
- safety and welfare to Oregon’s citizens.
