Hemp Cultivation License
While the hemp plant is similar to cannabis, it has not been illegal to produce since 1998. The Canadian government, however, placed several limitations around the production of it to ensure only the male plant was being produced and the female flowers (if produced) were destroyed.
Since cannabis legalization in October of 2018 however, the Canadian government has placed hemp cultivation under the Industrial Hemp Regulations and the Cannabis Regulations.
This means that plants that were once only be used for products such as hemp oil, hemp seeds, or fibers can now be sold to companies with the proper licensing for CBD oil extraction with a maximum percentage of 0.3% THC per weight.
To obtain a Hemp Cultivation License, several documents are required to provide the proper information on such things as the facility, personnel, and, must be submitted to the Office of Medical Cannabis for review.
