Industrial Hemp FAQs
Industrial hemp and medical cannabis come from the same plant genus. This is similar to the difference between sweet corn and field corn, while both are corn, the purposes are different. Both industrial hemp and medical cannabis products look similar and contain many of the same chemical compounds, however, the concentration of compounds in the two plant species can be vastly different. The legal difference is the amount of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) the plant contains. If the cannabis plant contains more than 0.3% THC it is considered medical cannabis or marijuana.
It is also required CBD products to have labels certifying they were produced legally and certificate of analysis (COA) including:
The state requires separate licenses for cultivation and processing hemp. Each license costs $500 per application for growers and $2,000 per application for processors. To sell industrial hemp products, including CBD, hemp fiber, hemp seed oil, etc., Utah retailers must register for and maintain an Industrial Hemp Retail Permit ($50 per location).
Under House Bill 3001, passed by Utah lawmakers on December 3, 2018, legal possession of hemp extract, or CBD oil, containing less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) no longer requires a hemp extract registration card.
