Industrial Hemp Pilot Program
North Carolina General Statute, Chapter 106 Article 50E, establishes the North Carolina Industrial Hemp Commission which shall, among other duties, establish an agricultural pilot program for the cultivation of industrial hemp in the State, and provide for reporting on the program by growers and processors for agricultural or other research. Additionally, the commission is assigned to establish procedures for reporting to the Commission by the growers and processors for agricultural or academic research. The Industrial Hemp Commission requires within the reporting requirements of the Temporary Rules that processors of industrial hemp in North Carolina shall register with the Commission and at the end of each calendar year report the total weight and type of industrial hemp processed from the North Carolina Industrial Hemp Pilot Program to the Industrial Hemp Commission.
Processors should register with the Industrial Hemp Commission with a standard letter as outlined in the Registration Letter requirements. A list of registered processors will be posted on this website. The Industrial Hemp Commission does not have authority to license or monitor the registered processors. The list is provided as a service to those involved with the program and does not imply the processors are active or in good standing with the Commission or other participants. This list will be updated regularly and is not final at any time.
