*This list is for your information and research purposes. NC State Extension does not endorse any of the seed or plant sources listed here; these listings have not been vetted.
Seed and Plant Providers: To be listed on this page as a source for hemp seeds, clones, and transplants, please send your information in the format used in the ads below to email@example.com and include Planting Sources in the Subject line. Hemp plants are considered annuals so they are exempt from the NC Nursery Regulations. You do not need to be a registered seed dealer in NC to sell hemp seed because hemp is not currently considered an agriculture or vegetable seed. The NC Seed Law requires all seed packages to have a label containing the following: name and kind of seed; lot number; weight; state or country of origin; % of inert matter; % of other crop seed; % weight of weed seeds; the name and number per pound of each kind of restricted noxious weed seed present; the name and address of the person/company responsible for the seed; % germination, exclusive of hard seed; % of hard seeds (if present); and the calendar month and year of the test date. If the website link, email, or phone number become inaccessible, the listing will be removed.
Buyers: There isn’t a minimum standard germination for hemp since it is not defined as an agriculture or vegetable seed. So, for example, a company may guarantee only 10% germination on a label and still sell it as long as the seed is at least 10% for germination. Seed complaints may be filed with the NCDA&CS against the seed retailer, but it is highly advised to try to work out any issues with the seed company before filing a complaint.
Certified Seed: In September 2020, Dr. Bill Foote created a short video presentation on certified hemp seed.
THE LISTINGS HERE ARE NOT VETTED IN ANY WAY AND WE DO NOT RECOMMEND OR ENDORSE ANY BUSINESS POSTED. CONSUMERS SHOULD PRACTICE DUE DILIGENCE IN CHECKING OUT ANY COMPANY THAT THEY BUY SEEDS, CLONES, OR PLANTS FROM. IN SIMPLE TERMS, DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE PARTING WITH YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY!
6/30/2023-The industry is changing rapidly and many companies are changing the products they offer, consolidating, or folding. The listings below are self-reported and updated. If you find any are incorrect, please let us know. We will automatically remove any with broken website links. Thanks.
