Industrial hemp regulations


Register for the industrial hemp regulations webinar - Friday June 26 2020 at 11:00am.

On 6 May 2020, the Northern Territory’s (NT) Hemp Industry Act 2019 and associated Regulations commenced.

The new Act provides the authorising environment and framework to regulate production of low tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) cannabis species, known as industrial cannabis, for food, fibre and seed production.

In the NT you need a licence to possess, cultivate, process or supply industrial hemp. This presentation will run through some of the basics around applying for a licence.

For more information on industrial hemp regulations and conditions, visit the NT Government website.


Join the Northern Territory Department of Primary Industry and Resources Agricultural Policy and Analysis Manager, Warren Hunt as he covers the basic licence application requirements.

Warren has 28 years of experience in rural industry capacity building, and has recently drafted the policy settings for allowing industrial hemp production in the Northern Territory.
