Hemp with a tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) level of 0.3% or less on dry weight basis is not a controlled substance in the United States. First, as stated above, hemp cannot contain more than 0.3 percent THC, according to section 10113 of the Farm Bill. Any cannabis plant containing more than 0.3 percent THC would be considered hemp-free marijuana or marijuana under federal law and would therefore have no legal protection under this new legislation.

The Department of Agriculture (USDA) will review and approve commercial hemp production plans developed by Indian state, territorial and tribal agencies and to develop its own production plan. Several provisions of the Farm Bill include changes to existing provisions of the farm law to include hemp. Like FDA-approved CBD products and viable hemp seeds, entities no longer require DEA registration or import and export permits to handle hemp extracts that do not exceed the legal THC limit of 0.3%.
Viable hemp seeds were classified as a Schedule I controlled substance before the amendments to the CSA enacted by the AIA. For something to be a controlled substance under the Federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA), it must be specifically programmed and assigned one of five classification criteria.
