Hemp Manufacturers and Processors


Kentucky welcomes this new industry with roots in Kentucky. Because federal hemp laws are based on Kentucky’s regulations, the Commonwealth is far ahead of other states in the growth and attraction of hemp-related facilities in Kentucky. If you are looking for a place to manufacture hemp-related products, we are here to serve you.

NOTE: Anyone planning to process or manufacture hemp products MUST have a license with the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. Details are available here: kyagr.com/hemp.

For manufacturers and processors, we have a variety of ways to lower your cost of doing business, the same options available for any other business. Visit ThinkKentucky.com, or click on any of the pertinent links below:
