Hemp: Information for Marijuana Licensees

Growing Hemp as a Producer or Producer/Processor
In order to grow hemp as a marijuana licensee in Washington state, one of the following licenses is required:


Hemp licenses are issued by the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) under the Industrial Hemp Research Pilot Program

Licensees should also stay atop federal requirements outlined by the USDA for hemp production, as required by the 2018 Farm Bill.

In addition, marijuana producer/processor licensees should work with WSLCB to update floor plans to reflect hemp production/processing areas within their operation(s).

WSDA licenses should be readily available to provide to an enforcement officer upon request.
