Industrial Hemp is Cannabis Sativia L and the Cannabis plant is considered Industrial Hemp if it contains less than 0.3% THC. This is not to be confused with high-end marijuana which usually contains 20-30% THC. The facility will process hemp plants and seeds into food and oil and will employe as many as 10 people on-site. It will also provide an opportunity for area farmers to grow and supply hemp under contract. The Industrial Hemp Commission (IHC), will be responsible for creating the rules and regulations to be followed by the program participants. The IHC will also be responsible for implementing university research programs. The pilot program will have a licensing cost of $250 plus $2 per acre.
