Ohio Hemp Licensing Opens in November
The Ohio Department of Agriculture Hemp Program will accept applications for the 2022 growing season beginning Nov. 1, 2021 through March 31, 2022. This can be done through ODA’s hemp licensing portal on ODA’s website. All current licensees must also complete the annual update form by March 31, 2022.
ODA will process applications in the order they are received. ODA is not able to expedite review of applications. In order to ensure the application is processed in an expedient manner, please complete all parts of the application thoroughly and accurately. If any portion is missing, incorrect, or otherwise deficient, ODA will send an email notifying the applicant of the deficiency. The application will only be considered once the deficiency is corrected through the online portal. Applicants have 30 days to correct deficiencies or the application is considered abandoned.
