The federal government has approved Nevada’s state hemp plan.
Under federal law, states must submit programs to the U.S. Department of Agriculture describing how the state regulations and processes will meet federal requirements ensuring hemp, not marijuana, makes it to customers. To be considered hemp, the plant must have less than three-tenths of a percent of THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana.
Nevada Agriculture Plant Industry Administrator Ashley Jeppson said his division is committed to preserving and promoting the hemp industry in Nevada.
The plan includes a system for registering growers, crop sampling and chemical analysis.
The Agriculture Department has held three public workshops and a hearing to receive input and explain the hemp plan to growers.
