Industrial Hemp Research Pilot Program

Thanks to the 2014 Farm act, it is now legal to grow industrial hemp in Washington State but only with a license through the WSDA Industrial Hemp Research Pilot Program. Industrial hemp was removed from the controlled substance list in July 2017. Hemp can Not be grown in this state with out a license. Civil penalties will soon be applied to those growing hemp in WA outside the Industrial Hemp Research Pilot Program. The WSDA is processing applications for growers, processors, marketers and seed distributors.
