More Than Half Of US Hemp Flower Grown In California

California produced 56% of all U.S. hemp flower

California led the nation in hemp flower acreage and production in 2022, according to an MJBizDaily analysis of the recent Census of Agriculture report released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Alameda County, California, harvested more hemp flower that year than any other U.S. county, with 5.5 million pounds.

Hemp farms in California’s Central Valley – including Fresno and Tulare counties – produced nearly 20% of domestically grown floral hemp, or hemp cultivated for its cannabinoid-rich flower, in 2022.

According to the USDA, more than 11 million pounds of hemp flower was produced in 2022 by 1,800 American farms covering about 10,500 acres.

California produced 56% of all U.S. hemp flower, which is used to extract CBD and other cannabinoids, including intoxicating hemp-derived THC.
