Become A Member

Our membership includes farmers, entrepreneurs, processors, manufacturers, researchers, investors, organizations, and businesses of all sizes who have entered the emerging hemp industry.


The National Hemp Association is a non-profit organization. With your help, we can help fulfill our mission of supporting all aspects of the hemp industry, educating people about the uses for hemp, and making industrial hemp legal at the federal level.


Volunteers receive a free individual membership, which gives access to the membership directory, resources for hemp legislation, state affiliate opportunities and more. Plus, stay connected with companies and experts that are already established in the industry.


NHA and HFC are motivated to benefit the entire industry by opening new markets for hemp and its co-products by gaining federal approval for its use as an animal feed ingredient. Historically, we have successfully worked on projects together and recognize the opportunity to share resources and expand the footprint of advocacy and education centered around hemp as a nutritious animal feed product.



The National Hemp Association is the definition of a KEY industry group to support from all the game-changing work they do building a community of individuals & businesses to facilitate the growth of the hemp industry to their extensive collaborative work with government officials & the scientific community to implement much needed industrial hemp standards & regulations. 

Grove Bags joined NHA this past year and has loved being a part of the invaluable ecosystem they’ve built, leveraging their Member Forum to get in direct contact with our core customer demographics and sharing our thought leadership insights with the industry as a whole through our educational blog contributions to the NHA network. Thank you Anna & The NHA Dream Team for all that you do!

NHA is worth supporting for their progressive hemp policy lobbying alone; but it is also a living, breathing community of real people from every walk of hemp-related life, and has offered Ai Vacuum, the botanical division of Across International, a fantastic opportunity to connect with processors that benefit from our extraction and laboratory equipment solutions!  Grateful every day to be a part of this industry NHA acts as the face for and unites once a month to discuss issues relevant to us!

Being a member of the National Hemp Association has been extremely resourceful for our team at 357 Hemp Logistics.  Educational and informational with a community feel would be the best way to describe our experience. We met Anna and her team at the Texas Hemp Convention and immediately knew they were the type of people we wanted to surround ourselves with as we grew our company within the logistics component of the hemp supply chain.

NHA Initiatives

We believe the only way to grow and progress in this promising industry is to become a united front. Developing these different but important initiatives adds value and support from the National Hemp Association and the subcommittees formed. From social equity to domestic hemp organizations to international collaborations, we believe this is how we secure an equitable, cooperative, and innovative industry.
