Is THC Legal in Kansas?
State law separately bans tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Because of this, it is difficult and risky for medical cannabis patients to try to take advantage of this provision. Most CBD products contain at least trace amounts of THC (“hemp” is sometimes defined as 0.3% THC or less). The bill — like SB 28 in 2019 — did not provide for in-state access to CBD oils in Kansas.
In 2021, the Kansas House of Representatives approved a bill that would legalize medical cannabis. As of 2022, the bill is now with the senate, but will not be up for legalization until the 2023 session.
Persons seeking to cultivate or produce industrial hemp must be licensed by the Kansas Department of Agriculture (KDA) in accordance to the Act.
Each individual seeking a license to produce industrial hemp or hemp products must apply no later than March 15 of each year to be considered.
The commercial hemp producer applicant or licensee must apply at the time of an application submission or request for modification of the license. Leverage this request when requesting planting restriction exemption.
