Missouri to Start Taking Hemp Cultivation Applications

Cannabis growers of a different stripe can begin submitting applications to the Missouri government next month for licenses to cultivate hemp.

Missouri is one of several states that passed legislation this year permitting the cultivation and use of high-CBD, low-THC cannabis for the treatment of epilepsy.

On Nov. 3, the state’s Agriculture Department will begin a 30-day application window for the two hemp cultivation licenses it plans to award.

According to state rules, the two cultivators must operate as nonprofits, and each hemp harvest must be tested to ensure that the THC level is at or below 0.3%.

The Missouri Health Department estimates that roughly 1,000 epileptic patients will participate in the program.
