Industrial Hemp Program Updated:02/2023

The 2018 Farm Bill legalized the commercial production of hemp and authorized states to submit state plans to administer hemp programs. In Texas, House Bill 1325 was signed into law in June 2019 and authorizes the production, manufacture, retail sale, and inspection of industrial hemp crops and products. This also includes products for consumable hemp products which contain cannabidiol (CBD), as well as other edible parts of the hemp plant. The Texas Department of Agriculture opened the hemp licensing and permit application process online on March 16, 2020.
