Idaho Legalizes Industrial Hemp

Brad Little, the governor of Idaho, signed the bill legalizing the cultivation, sale, and processing of hemp.

In most states in the US, industrial hemp is legal and can be consumed and processed, and Idaho is late with legalizing hemp.

However, Idaho requires that the hemp utilized must not contain any amount of THC, a departure from other states that put a 0.3% THC limit against hemp products.

Farmers in Idaho are very happy now because they can finally start to cash in on the in-demand industrial hemp. However, they will have to get licensed before they begin work.

Idaho’s state laws against CBD are perceived as somewhat limiting especially because of their zero-tolerance against THC. It would help if the law would be revised to at least include 0.3% THC.
