The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) Hemp Program will accept applications for the 2022 growing season through May 31, 2022. New applicants and renewals can apply at the hemp licensing portal on ODA’s website. All current cultivation and non-university research licensees must also complete the annual update form by May 31, 2022.
ODA will process applications in the order they are received. ODA is not able to expedite review of applications. Please complete all parts of the application thoroughly and accurately to ensure the application is processed in an expedient manner. If any portion is missing, incorrect, or otherwise deficient, ODA will send an e-mail notifying the applicant of the deficiency. The application will only be considered once the deficiency is corrected through the online portal. Applicants have 30 days to correct deficiencies or the application is considered abandoned.
Please contact the Hemp Program at 614.728.2101 or via email at email@example.com if you have any questions regarding the applications or the application process.
