Thanks in large part to the growing popularity of hemp-derived products, such as the now-widespread cannabidiol (CBD) oil, Georgians can now apply for a hemp processor bond under the Georgia Hemp Farming Act. If you are interested in becoming a licensed hemp processor, however, you need to purchase a license bond. Our surety bond experts can help you through the licensing process and provide you with a hemp processor bond that meets the state’s new licensing requirements.

Georgia law requires a license for both hemp cultivation and hemp processing (please note that these are separate licenses). Anyone interested in using raw hemp to create oils, paper, wood, clothes, plastic substitutes, and other hemp-derived products must have a hemp processor license. A hemp processor bond is required as part of the licensing process.
The Georgia Department of Agriculture requires that permittees have and maintain a surety bond in the amount of $100,000.00. The bond must be issued by a surety company that is authorized to conduct business in Georgia.
Per Georgia House Bill 324, the hemp processor permit (and bond) may not be used to process or handle materials with a total THC concentration greater than 0.3%.
