Hemp products can only be made from iHemp
Under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1975, Industrial Hemp Regulations 2006, only iHemp can produce hemp products. And you don’t need a licence to deal in hemp products, which are made of or derived from iHemp, which of course is grown under licence
This gives the iHemp industry a secure closed loop within which to operate.
The NZHIA are encouraging our member businesses to start building markets for iHemp products, you don’t need permission from the Ministry of Heath we have the regulations which allow us to do this, so NZHIA members will be making and marketing hemp products in growing quantities in the future.
As members of the public we need your support; By buying hemp products you will be supporting a brand new industry, which has the potential to create employment and sustainable land uses.
The great thing is you will be buying and using products that are going to be useful and helpful to you, your family and your animals.
Hemp seed food is a great example and when the law changes to allow human consumption the iHemp seed industry is set to scale.
Make sure you are telling your friends and people involved in industry about the virtues of iHemp and encourage them to get in touch with the NZHIA or iHemp businesses so they can get involved.
