The National Hemp Association is dedicated to the re-birth of industrial hemp in America. We are a mission-driven non-profit which helps connect farmers, processors, manufactures, researchers, investors and policy makers to accelerate the growth of this important industry in the United States.
The term "industrial hemp" is defined as the plant Cannabis sativa L., with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.
