The limit of .3% has been a point of contention since the program started
Wisconsin’s Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection (DAC&CP) issued a new emergency rule that will let some hemp growers save crops that go over the federal THC limit of 0.3%. The state adopted two federal rules affecting such adulterated plants.
First, allowances have been set that shield growers from fines if their crops go “hot,” raising the tolerance level from a total 0.5% to 1.0% for THC in hemp crops. Those non-compliant crops could be at least partially saved by cutting off and destroying only the flowers, or grinding the entire plant into biomass, said Brian Kuhn, who heads the DAC&CP’s hemp program.
