1/15/2019 – The new 2018 Farm Bill does NOT change the requirement for NC hemp growers to have a license for 2019. It also does not interfere with the FDA’s authority over CBD as a human or animal consumable (in food, feed, or as a topical, drug, or supplement). As of now, FDA still does not allow CBD in consumables. Therefore, there is no license, permit, or inspections, specific to hemp or CBD, available for hemp processors or retailers. Processors are required to register that they are receiving raw hemp.

On the positive side, hemp and its derivatives (see the Farm Bill for exact language) are no longer controlled substances overseen by the DEA. So they can be shipped and transported in and out of states as are other crops. License copies should still be kept with hemp being transported to help remove questions of it being marijuana.
