Parliamentary Committee Report Backs Australian Hemp

The Hemp Gazette reports…

An Australian Parliament Agriculture and Water Resources Committee report released last month supports removing barriers faced by the nation’s hemp sector.


The Committee’s inquiry looked at how Australia’s agriculture sector could reach a target set by the National Farmers’ Federation of a farmgate value of $100 billion by 2030. While ambitious, the committee said it was achievable. A crop that could help get Australia over the line is hemp.

Among the recommendations made by the Committee was the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment should review regulations applying to the growing and processing of “low-THC Industrial Hemp”.

The term “low-THC industrial hemp” is like saying wet water. By legal definition, industrial hemp is low-THC – but anyway.
