The Ohio Department of Agriculture Hemp Program will accept applications for the 2021 growing season beginning Monday, November 9, 2020 through Friday, April 9, 2021. New applicants and renewals can apply at the hemp licensing portal on ODA’s website. All current licensees must also complete the annual update form by May 28, 2021.
ODA will process applications in the order they are received. ODA is not able to expedite review of applications. In order to ensure the application is processed in an expedient manner, please complete all parts of the application thoroughly and accurately. If any portion is missing, incorrect, or otherwise deficient, ODA will send an email 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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding the applications or the application process.
