Recently Approved Applications


Your application requires processing and vetting by the NCDA&CS. Due to the large number of applications in the winter/spring, you should plan on submitting samples at least six weeks prior to planned Industrial Hemp Commission meetings. Your application will be voted on at the Commission meeting immediately following it being processed by NCDA&CS. If you turn-in your application only a few days to a week before a Commission meeting, it will not be reviewed at that meeting.

  Per state law, the Industrial Hemp Commission must vote to approve all applications for industrial hemp licenses.

Access to the conference call can be made at or by calling 1-929-205-6099 (U.S. toll) or 1-669-900-6833 (U.S. toll). The meeting ID is 502-329-222. Participants will be prompted to enter their name and email address to enter the meeting via the website or prompted for a unique participant ID for the call. They should press # to access the call.

ALL Applications voted on at the last Commission meeting (June 7) were approved. If your name is not listed below, all parts of your application were not received in time to get vetted by NCDA&CS.
