As many of you are aware, the North Carolina Industrial Hemp Pilot Program was set to expire on October 31, 2020. However, Congress passed a law in September that allows states to continue their pilot programs until September 20, 2021.
This means that for the time being the rules for growing hemp, licensing, compliance testing, etc. will remain the same in North Carolina. The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (NCDA&CS) has notified all growers who currently hold a hemp license of this update.
There is additional detail in the letter NCDA&CS sent to growers which can be viewed: NCDA&CS letter >>
