What is Industrial Hemp?
Industrial hemp means the plant species Cannabis sativa L. and any part of the plant, whether growing or not, containing a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration of no more than three-tenths of one percent (0.3%) on a dry weight basis.
Under State and Federal law, the CDA tests for total THC through the process of post-decarboxylation.
The Colorado Department of Agriculture's Industrial Hemp Program regulates only the cultivation of industrial hemp. The Department also administers a certified seed program.
The Industrial Hemp Program does not have jurisdiction over the processing, sale or distribution of industrial hemp.
