Industrial Hemp in Oregon

Any other growers participating / interested in Oregon's industrial hemp program? The program is pretty awesome. $500 cost to register as a grower. No cameras. No fences. No plant count limits. No canopy limits. Counties and cities can't ban it. Federally legal due to the 2014 Farm Bill and, thanks to the FY2016 Ag appropriations bill, legal to ship anywhere in the US (only catch: THC must be less than 0.3%).

We've got 5 sites running this season (you can register limitless sites under the same $500 license) for both CBD flower and seed production. Anyone else jump into this yet?

Water rights? Are you using well water?

Of course you are already on zoned AG right?

Do you have a lab help with samples and QC/QA?

Pest control?

Sounds awesome, especially if CBD oil can become a reliable alternative and be had for fractions of pennies.....

Farmers do not have to demonstrate water rights to ODA for their crop in the same way rec growers do to the OLCC, but it's always good to have that stuff figured out ahead of time. We have 5 sites around the state with various water rights, but all legal to use for crop irrigation.
Our primary field pulls directly from the Willamette river, and, yes, it is ag zoned (year 1 of organic transition).

Yes, we work with an awesome local lab.

Biggest pest concerns vary from field to field; last year was rabbits, this year mice. Bears cause trouble at one of our sites, but haven't destroyed any plants yet.

I spent a good amount of time talking to the hemp folks down at hempstalk. Hemp growing has all sorts of fascinating possibilities & some fine looking plants as well, hitting pretty big CBD numbers while keeping the THC at bay. Is anyone sourcing cannabis terpenes from hemp plants? The massive oil batches I've seen pics of are already intriguing enough without worrying about unexploited potential.
If you were a medical grower with a client who desired CBD, sounds like you could just pay up the $500 & grow hemp plants for the CBD source, preserving your THC plant count for the THC plants, is that at all accurate?

Minimum five acres plus handling and processing licensing too which weren't outlined by OP. Not too difficult, though. Hemp CBD is just like any other strain, without genomic markers we are left to search for quality cultivars. Not all hemp produces CBD in sufficienct or useable quality. So not the quite a panacea for going a "cheaper" road for medicinal quality.

Huge potential for a state that really has agriculture centered only in the Willamette Valley, which is fine...This is a borderline desert shrub; Eastern Central and Steens and Blue Mountain areas would be badass for hemp farming, especially interlaced with all the Medicago sativa that is grown everywhere else around there.....

Thanks, hemp is a fascinating topic that I pretty much ignored until a few months ago. Its also a cannabis plant that might be grown in those localities that still don't permit high THC varieties, which is most of the east side of the state. I have friends who live out south of Christmas Valley who would love to grow, but marijuana (using the slave name is valid in this context) is banned in their locality, they might be interested in hemp.

Here are some topical photos I took at Hempstalk, I got some hemp flower


Beautiful golden hemp oil, 26% CBD. Those purple stalks in the background are from hemp purps.


All them seeds


Various hemp textiles & other products

There is no longer a minimum acreage requirement in Oregon, we did away with that last legislative session. Finding high CBD cultivars that qualify as hemp is easy in this state--get a $500 license and the list of seed suppliers from ODA. Our company is the largest supplier of terpene rich, high CBD varieties in the state and will have some very cool releases for the 2017 season.

Yes, the Willamette valley is a great place to grow cannabis--as long as you have varieties that finish before the monsoons set in (which is happening right now this season)!

We like to grow on 4'x6' centers with early finishing plants and recommend this to our clients who are producing more than 5 acres of plants. Here's a 2lb'er that was harvested last week (15% CBD, 30:1 ratio).

We haven't trialed that one. We only grow our own varieties in our main production field, as they are bred for specific purposes. We do, however, run some common clones in our seed production sites (ACDC, Ringo's Gift, HarleTsu, etc.) when we improve them for Oregon's climate.
