Where to buy certified hemp seeds
Planning to grow hemp? And wondering where to buy certified hemp seeds? We asked the same questions when we started growing hemp. It took us some time to find this information. Since certified hemp seeds are only available for purchase at authorized retailers it can get a bit challenging to find these distributors. But, worry not! We are here to help! We've made a list of seed distributors to help you on your growing journey.
But first things first, why would you need certified hemp seeds? Besides preserving genetic purity (which is important if you care about the seed quality), if you are a farmer eligible for area-based direct payments under the CAP "you must use certified seeds of varieties listed in the EU common catalog of varieties of agricultural plant species." (Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development). Read more about hemp and hemp production in EU here.
