Deadline Set for Licenses for Iowa Hemp Growers

The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship is encouraging Iowans to apply for or renew their hemp licenses for the 2022 growing season.

Applications are available online through the state’s hemp licensing portal. The deadline to apply for the outdoor growing season is April 15.

Individuals interested in growing hemp must obtain an annual license. The commercial hemp production program does not license cannabidiol (CBD) products for human consumption, extraction or processing in Iowa.

The Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals regulates Consumable Hemp Products. Additional information for retailers and processors is available at dia.iowa.gov.
