Vermont Hemp Industry

Posted by rohanrj on November 6th, 2019

Vermont authorized hemp cultivation in 2013 and started growing in 2014, as allowed under a pilot program of the 2014 Farm Bill.

In spring of 2018, H. 663 was signed into law by the governor providing the opportunity for any farmer who registered with the Agency to grow hemp and participate in a new research program. The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets (AAFM) administers Vermont’s hemp program.

In May 2019, the (AAFM) submitted a new set of rules governing the cultivation and processing of hemp in Vermont to the Vermont Secretary of State’s Office.

The state requires separate licenses for cultivation and processing hemp.

The Hemp Industry Daily reported that in Vermont, growers made about 0 or more per pound of dried hemp flower for CBD extraction, around per pound of seed, and 10 cents per pound of stalk.

Even though Vermont allows seed and fiber production, almost all the hemp growers are growing plants for CBD extraction.

The Vote Hemp reported that 1,820 acres of hemp were grown in Vermont in 2018 comparing to 575 acres in 2017.

According to the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets, 820 growers were licensed to plant about 7,800 acres of hemp in 2019, with a 137% growth from 2018, and it has also issued 115 hemp processor registrations to perform CBD extraction.
