A research team from A&M have created a hand-held scanner that instantly reads THC levels without damage to the plant. The research paper published Jan.17, 2020 demonstrates how Raman Spectroscopy (RS), modern analytical technique, can be used to determine whether plant material is hemp or cannabis with 100% accuracy.

Texas's first year cultivating hemp requires seeds or clones from outside the state to be transported in for distribution. Texas State Seed Trade Association has been tasked with certifying hemp seeds for state wide distribution, and recently approved 6 seed varieties from Sunbelt Hemp out of Georgia.
Efficient facilitation of seed transactions will be required immediately upon license approval, which is expected in the next 30 days.
Organizations who would like to sell seed or clones in the state can submit requirements for review by Texas State Seed & Plant Board. TXHHA members have access to resources that address existing processes and best practices to ensure your business is prepared.
Texas Hemp Harvesters Association is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization.
