Uttarakhand Becomes the First State in India to Issue Industrial Hemp Cultivation License

Uttarakhand has become the first state in India to have issued a legal license for the commercial cultivation of industrial hemp.  The Indian Industrial Hemp Association (IIHA) has been granted the first licenses to cultivate hemp on a research basis. The non-profit organization will begin growing 1,000 hectares.

“We will commence cultivation of non-narcotic hemp soon with the initial focus on creating a seed bank.” said Rohit Sharma, Founder-President, IIHA.

Industrial hemp can be manufactured into a number of finished goods and can be utilized in numerous ways to improve our environment. Textiles, finished food products, cosmetics, bio-fuel, environmentally friendly construction materials, and medicine can all be manufactured or extracted from the hemp plant.

The implementation of a commercial hemp industry in India could be a huge positive for the country’s economy and some of its impoverished cities. Industrial hemp could be a huge cash crop for the country’s farmers, manufacturers, and product distributers, as well as, hemp could be used as a major export for India. Hemp can be grown with scarce resources such as water and nutrient rich land. Farmers can also cultivate multiple crops a year in India which will help slow down deforestation throughout the country.
