Hemp Plans for Georgia and South Carolina Approved by USDA
A total of 14 hemp plans have been approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture with the addition of two new approvals this week. As reported by Ganjapreneur, Georgia and South Carolina are the latest two states to have their proposed programs approved by the USDA. The approval spurred five hemp processing license requests and 57 cultivation license requests in Georgia.
Currently, Georgia allows the sale of CBD products, but all legal CBD products are sourced outside the state. This ruling will allow growers and producers in Georgia to participate in this booming industry. Applications for hemp farming in South Carolina are being accepted for the rest of the year, for growing next year. So far 350 people have applied to grow hemp in 2021 in South Carolina.
