UH Gets Federal Approval to Import Hemp Seed

Honolulu Civil Beat
The University of Hawaii has received a permit from federal Drug Enforcement Administration to import industrial hemp seeds from Australia.

The seeds will be used for Hawaii’s Industrial Hemp Research Project, which was created via a state law in 2014.

“This project is just the first step in establishing Hawaii as a leader in the growth and production of industrial hemp and its products,” Rep. Cynthia Thielen (Kailua-Kaneohe Bay) said in a press release Wednesday.
