Any cannabis plant below 1% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) gets categorised and registered as industrial hemp in Malawi.
The typical use of industrial hemp has been majorly limited to the production of the grain and stalk; high quality raw materials that can be refined into hundreds of products.
The production of high CBD flowers is considered industrial hemp production as long as the THC limits do not exceed the threshold.

These plants are subject to much harder regulations to be produced and procedures to ensure traceability, quality, consistency and safety are compulsory.
