Growing Hemp in Minnesota

The best time to plant CBD seeds in Minnesota is between mid-May and mid-June and after the last danger of frost has passed. The hemp grower will plant around 1,000 to 2,000 CBD hemp seeds or plants per acre. Moreover, hemp is an ideal plant to use as part of a crop rotation system.

Growers must give the Minnesota Department of Agriculture access to hemp plants for inspection and sampling as and when required.

The hemp grower must take reasonable steps to ensure hemp crops are secure and not at risk for theft. However, there are no fencing or barrier requirements associated with the hemp program. An ideal solution for hemp crop protection is the use of greenhouses. Please note that it is illegal to cultivate hemp on residential property in Minnesota.

It is best to test hemp crops regularly throughout the growing season to ensure hemp crop compliance. Regular testing helps growers monitor cannabinoid development so they can notify the Department with ample time to harvest. Many growers test crops weekly through third-party testing labs. Test results must be sent to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture by November in a Final Report.

Harvesting Hemp in Minnesota

Harvesting generally takes place between three and four months after planting. The hemp grower must notify the Minnesota Departure of Agriculture of their intention to harvest at least 30 days before the harvest date by sending a Planting/Harvest Report.

After receiving the Planting/Harvest Report, the Department will schedule a time to take 30 samples from each crop. The Department will remove cuttings will from the top two inches of the female flowers to determine the overall average THC content in the area. However, the Department cannot take cuttings cannot unless at least 75 percent of the plants are flowering.

Tested samples must prove that the hemp contains less than 0.3 percent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). If the samples pass that test, the Department will issue a Fit For Commerce certificate to the grower. It is illegal to sell or transfer ownership of a hemp crop without this certificate.

If the samples fail THC testing, the grower may request a retest at his or her cost. If a hemp grower decides not to have the samples retested, or if the samples fail the test a second time, the grower must destroy the noncompliant crop.
