SB 5372 Guidance: Hemp Processor Registration and Hemp Extract Certification

  • SB 5372 went into effect on July 25, 2021, and creates a voluntary registration and certification program that hemp processors can opt-in to
  • The purpose of SB 5372 is to allow Washington hemp businesses to sell ingestible hemp products, like hemp-CBD, in other states that require certain safety standards. However, Washington State does not allow for the sale of ingestible hemp products (other than hemp seed ingredients) and SB 5372 does not change that.
