Selling of hemp is legal in the Kern Country. There won’t be any action against anyone who sells it. But there is one condition applied – the THC levels must not exceed the 0.3 percent limit. It is then, that the crops become illegal.

Generally hemp has many other domestic purposes like making of ropes, strong fabrics, paper, construction materials, cosmetics and food products. But in California, the crop was cultivated to produce cannabidiol. It is responsible to produce the “high”  or intoxicated state of the said person who uses it.
