To support the growth and development of all aspects of the industrial hemp industry.
We accomplish this by:
• Educating and informing the public about the health, environmental, and economic benefits of reviving an industry that has been prohibited for over seventy years;
• Building a community of individuals, businesses and organizations to facilitate the growth of the industry;
• Working collaboratively with industry, government officials, and the scientific community to create and implement industrial hemp standards, certifications and regulations.
We firmly believe that American industry is trending towards bio-sustainability and hemp plays a critical role in the establishment of a new economic paradigm. The National Hemp Association is dedicated to shifting the perception of hemp as being an alternative crop to a mainstream commodity.
We are a non-profit corporation created to encourage trade and discourse among hemp professionals. We are dedicated to the development of the domestic industrial hemp industry. This goal will be attained by coordinating legislation, agricultural organizations, farmers, processors, manufacturers, and retailers. The promotion of the industrial hemp industry is congruent with the desire to improve the environment through production and utilization of hemp farming and products. We see a direct relationship between the products we use and stewardship of the land.
We have developed close relationships with government agencies to establish regulations that benefit the hemp industry across the nation. We provide a wealth of expertise in fields ranging from mining and agriculture to hemp materials processing and the latest developments pertaining to laws and regulations.
