CBD Hemp Seeds For Growing In Maine


To grow hemp in Maine for commercial purposes, one must first register as either an indoor or outdoor hemp grower. The registration period is open year-round but requires at least 30 days advanced notice before farmers can sew hemp seeds or transplant young hemp plants.

Get Licensed to Grow Hemp in Maine

Those who wish to grow hemp in Maine need not be residents of the state to do so. They must, however, have written permission from landowners to use their property for hemp cultivation and processing.

Those who plan to grow hemp outdoors must submit an Outdoor Hemp License Application, whereas indoor or greenhouse growers must submit the Indoor Hemp License Application. Both forms are similar and require detailed descriptions of growing site locations and licensee contact information. Note that there may be zoning restrictions. Contact local officials for details.

Hemp grower applications must also include records proving that hemp seeds, seed starts, or clones come from parents with compliant THC levels. Additionally, applicants must submit a $100 nonrefundable registration fee. Applicants must make checks payable to Treasurer: State of Maine. Send the payment, the completed form, and all applicable information to Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry; Division of Animal and Plant Health; 28 State House Station; Augusta, Maine 04333

The Department requires at least 30 days to process applications. Registrants can expedite the process by ensuring that all applicable forms and fees are attached to the registration form(s) and submitted to the proper authorities. The state also recommends that all applicants keep photocopies of all registration documents for their records.

After approval, the Department will contact the licensee with more information and an invoice for the remaining fees. The Department bases fees on the scale of the hemp operation. Outdoor fees are $50 per acre, and indoor fees are $0.25 per square foot plus a $500 licensing fee for both indoor and outdoor facilities.

Licenses are valid for 365 days and do not automatically renew. To avoid delays, the Department recommends submitting a renewal application at least 30 days before the previous one expires.

Hemp Reporting, Sampling, and Testing

Growers must submit either an Indoor Planting Report or an Outdoor Hemp Planting Report no more than 14 days after planting. The form must accompany a third-party testing report confirming THC compliance of the seed or hemp plant parent. Varieties included in the report must match the cultivars listed on the application and will ideally match the proposed location of use, as well. The name of the seed supplier and date of testing must also be apparent.

The planting report must also list the proposed harvest date, which the Department will use to determine when to sample and test hemp crops. Note that participating in Maine’s Hemp Program requires regular crop testing to ensure THC compliance. The Department may test hemp plants at any time as they deem necessary and always before harvest. If the Department does not test crops at least 15 days before the intended harvest date, the licensee must notify the Department promptly with their intent to harvest.

The Department will take random representative samples in the company of the license-holder or appointed representative. Whereas crops compliant crops can then be entered into commerce, non-compliant hemp crops (those testing above 0.3 percent THC) require immediate destruction. The Department must approve of the method by which growers will destroy the plants. Additionally, the licensee must pay all fees associated with hemp crop destruction in Maine.

Consumable Hemp Product Rules and Guidelines

The FDA prohibits food, dietary supplements, pet food, or unapproved drugs from interstate commerce. As such, ingestible hemp products sold in Maine must also be produced in Maine. However, CBD itself may be sourced from out of state vendors as long as they operate under an existing Farm Bill program.

Vendors who sell CBD products in Maine must display careful labeling, as well. Labels must list all ingredients in the hemp CBD product, including how much hemp or CBD is in the product (by weight or volume), the name and address of the hemp source, the batch number of CBD extracts, and a safety disclosure.

Buy Maine Feminized Hemp Seeds

Maine does not certify hemp seeds or offer a list of approved hemp seed distributors. It is up to the grower to ensure they buy CBD hemp seeds from a reputable dealer and to gather all applicable information from the seed dealer upon purchase. Farmers should never buy feminized hemp seeds without proper documentation like a Certificate of Analysis.
