Hemp Program

The New Mexico Environment Department’s Environmental Health Bureau (NMED) is responsible for permitting hemp warehouses, extraction facilities, manufacturing facilities, and processing facilities throughout New Mexico. A permit is required for people engaging in these activities in New Mexico. 

NMED is also responsible for creating requirements for hemp product transportation and hemp finished product labeling.
