The Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection has added applications for hemp cultivation and processing for consumable products to the state eLicense website. Any products that will be made using heated or distilled hemp (extract/liquid) must have a license. Those that are just growing hemp for wholesale purposes aren’t required to have the license.
Licenses are not required for those that aren’t manufacturing hemp-based products, according to the Journal Inquirer.
Connecticut regulators are in the process of creating regulations for the state’s hemp industry. Testing requirements will also be put in place to ensure that THC concentrations do not exceed 0.3%.
The licensing process can be started at Elicense.ct.gov.
