How can I legally grow hemp in the UK?
Asked 2 years ago
I want to start making hemp-based products, but I can't afford to buy the raw materials and would prefer to grow it myself. What are the conditions surrounding this? Do I need a license to grow hemp in the UK?

Hemp with a THC amount of below 0.2% can be legally grown in the UK.
However, it is illegal to grow hemp in the UK without a license obtained from the Home Office. To get a hemp growing license in the UK, the application is done online, where you will need to provide specific information regarding your future plans on growing hemp.
Specifically, you will need to supply the following details:
- Contact details
- The size of your land
- Field location number and names
- Farm map
- Seed type and THC content
- Pay the required fees
Additionally, you will need to produce a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check to confirm that you don't have any criminal record.
