U.S. Hemp Roundtable
Launched in early 2017, the U.S. Hemp Roundtable is a coalition of dozens of hemp companies – representing every link of the product chain, from seed to sale – and all of the industry’s major national grassroots organizations.
Our goal is to secure passage of bi-partisan legislation in the U.S. Congress that would establish hemp as an agricultural commodity, and permanently remove it from regulation as a controlled substance. Our efforts include an aggressive, targeted, grass-tops lobbying campaign that will bring leading farmers and business executives to Washington to secure final passage of Senate Bill 2667 and House Bill 5485, The Hemp Farming Act of 2018.
In order to build political support – and ensure the long term viability of the industry – the Roundtable’s mission also includes:
- Facilitating information exchange with law enforcement and federal agency officials
- The seeding and infrastructure development of an independent, self-regulated organization (SRO), including the drafting of regulatory-acceptable specifications and standards.
- Continued long-term legislative advocacy on other major policy issues, remaining vigilant against potential attempts of rival industries to halt hemp’s progress.

U.S. Hemp Roundtable Board of Directors
National Hemp Association (NHA)
We are a trade association working on behalf of all sectors of the hemp industry and support use of all parts of the hemp plant. It’s time for hemp to return to America where it can become a significant source of U.S. jobs and provide a domestic supply of hemp for the millions of dollars worth of hemp that is now imported into the U.S.
