The New Jersey Hemp Farming Act was enacted in August 2019. This new legislation complies with the 2018 Farm Bill, which authorized hemp producers to grow and sell hemp for commercial purposes.
On December 27, New Jersey was among the first three states to have its Hemp Program approved by the USDA.
It is the participant’s responsibility to ensure that the transfer or sale of any hemp material complies with all applicable state and federal laws. All hemp materials must be appropriately identified or labeled during transit.
Please review the “2020 New Jersey Hemp Program Instructions and Attachments for Participants” whether you are applying as a grower or as a processor/handler. The packet includes forms that are necessary to complete your application and other helpful information.
