Hemp Licensing In 2022

Those interested in growing, handling, or researching hemp in 2022 need to apply for a license through the Office of the Indiana State Chemist. The process of obtaining a license is the same as 2021. Both new and former license holders will need to get a federal FBI background check and upload the results into the OISC licensing software. Background checks must be completed within 60 days of hemp application submission. There are multiple videos available on the OISC hemp page in section 3 that guide applicants through the process. It is important to note that a federal background check can be obtained through the United States Postal Office in Indianapolis, by sending in a fingerprint card to FBI, or using an FBI channeler service.

This is a busy time of year for OISC, license applicants should review the materials in Section 3 before calling with questions.

For those interested in hemp licensing, an overview of the 2021 season, and hemp legislation, there is a webinar on February 3rd at 7:00pm. This is a great way to stay on top of changes taking place in the Indiana hemp industry and connect with other webinar attendees. This webinar is hosted through the Midwest Hemp Council, more information and registration can be found at this link.

Stay tuned for more virtual hemp events coming in the next several months.
