PROCESSING, MANUFACTURING, AND SALE OF CANNABINOID HEMP PRODUCTS
Pursuant to Chapter 1 of the Laws of 2020 signed by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, the Department of Health (DOH) is launching a new Cannabinoid Hemp Program to regulate the processing, manufacturing and sale of cannabinoid hemp products in New York State.
The Program requires anyone who is processing, manufacturing or selling cannabinoid hemp to first obtain a license from the NYS Department of Health.
However, NYS Department of Health is not yet accepting applications for obtaining cannabinoid hemp processing, manufacturing or selling licenses. The Department has issued proposed regulations to implement this program and will be sharing more information as it becomes available.
No matter what aspect of the hemp industry you intend to participate in, the attorneys at Leaf Legal, P.C. are able to help you navigate the in-flux hemp laws.
