    I am going to be growing Hemp in Wisconsin and I have been searching for Hemp CBD seeds. I have found several places selling seeds. Are there any certifications or other information that I should be asking of the seed sellers to make certain I am getting a product I can plant in Wisconsin?

    Thanks,

    Ken

    Hi Ken – I am pretty new to this as well and am in central Wisconsin. This will be my first year. I found the link below on DATCP’s website that may/may not answer your question.

    Hi Yia,

    Glad to know I am not the only new person on the block…

    Thank you for that link it. The list they give is not an easy follow or read. Also some of the licensed seed sellers they list no longer have valid website. One I had been looking at was Oregon CBD however I am looking to only start out with 2 acres and their minumum order is 5,000 seeds. I have found a few other seed sellers and based on what I am reading I will likely need to get them certified. I am not sure what the line means:

    Certified Seed Recommendation
    While the law does not require that you plant seed that has actually been certified (the above lists include varieties eligible to be certified), we highly recommend that you do so. Certified seed is more likely to produce a crop that meets the THC limit, and many markets demand hemp grown from certified seed. It will also provide legal protection; if you plant certified seed, you will not be prosecuted under Wisconsin law if your crop exceeds the THC limit.

    Can I ask where you are located..if you want to share. I would like to get a chance to talk with other farmers in WI.

    Thanks,

    Ken

    I could be wrong but my interpretation of ‘certified’ is basically a COA ( certificate of analysis) from the seed seller. Normally they should supply you a sheet with their seeds when you supply them your license and $ of course.

    The farm I’m planning on growing on is by Stevens point. Give me a call and we can chat if you’d like. Others are welcome to call or respond here as wel. Just a note that I am not an expert whatsoever. Just starting off and reading my way through.
