The crop is embargoed (meaning you can harvest it, but it cannot leave the site) until you can provide an approved remediation plan. If you have true industrial hemp (type III), this simply involves mulching whole plants to achieve a 0.3% total concentration. Or extracting the active materials (CO2, ethanol, BHO, etc.) and cutting it with a useful adulterant (i.e. alcohol, olive oil, etc.) until the final "product" tests at 0.3% or below for THC, then you are allowed to do whatever you want with it. All sorts of possibilities here!
It's a hell of a lot easier to just pass your initial field THC testing though. The state allows farmers to test 30 days before harvest, and any decent plant that is 20:1 or higher will pass testing. All 5 of our farms passed this season and every single field that grew any of our four varieties of seed passed as well. If you are growing true type III seed lines, there is nothing to worry about if you test at the appropriate time. We're truly loving the law here in Oregon. For once, cannabis is REALLY legal. Love it!
