​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​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. ​
