Florida hemp plan wins USDA approval in time for 2020 applications

Last Updated on

Florida’s proposed hemp regulations have won federal approval, two weeks before the state plans to start taking applications for its first commercial hemp season.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture signed off on Florida’s plan this week. Applications open April 27.

Florida calls for hemp to be tested for total THC content in labs registered with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

Florida also outlines hemp transportation rules. Those don’t need USDA clearance but include a requirement that hemp shippers stop at a state agriculture inspection station and show:

  • a certificate of analysis on the material’s total THC content;
  • a bill of sale including the place of origin; and
  • a phytosanitary certificate for live plant material.

Also this week, the USDA approved hemp-production rules from the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians in North Dakota.
