Bill that would require combination of THC, THCA levels in Colorado hemp heads to governor’s desk

DENVER – A bill that changes the way THC levels are calculated in Colorado’s industrial hemp has been sent to Gov. John Hickenlooper’s desk.

Senate Bill 90 passed its third reading in the House by a 58-3 vote Friday morning. Four representatives did not vote.

The bill will change the rules regarding industrial hemp so that the state agriculture commissioner will have to measure delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) levels combined with the levels of tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) in hemp crops.

Under Colorado Department of Agriculture rules, industrial hemp has to have THC levels of under 0.3 percent so as to not qualify as psychoactive marijuana.
