Who would have thought five years ago that the House and Senate agricultural committees would use a farm bill to amend the Controlled Substances Act and remove hemp from its class 5 category with the full support of the Senate majority?

Congressional agricultural committees then immediately mandated that hemp — and therefore cannabidiol, or CBD — become eligible for coverage and subsidies under the federal crop insurance program.

By signing the 2018 farm bill, President Trump has given all hemp farmers immediate access to one of the government’s most lucrative subsidy initiatives: the federal crop insurance program.

"Under new section 297A of the Act, “hemp” would be defined to mean “the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol [THC] concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.” A later section in the bill modifies the definition of “marihuana” within the Controlled Substances Act (“CSA”) to exclude “hemp, as defined in section 297A of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946.” The same section would exclude “tetrahydrocannabinols in hemp” from control as a schedule I substance "

This was a perfect chance for the hemp grow industry to start its rise to new heights. For the team at I Love Hemp Seeds this meant an opportunity to gather seeds from the plethora of hemp seed breeders across the nation and bring them to you!


I’m Robert Bergman. I’m a hemp enthusiast and the founder of ILGH. I’ve spent the last 25 years learning everything there is to know about hemp. When I started I was in a home-based setup where 5-plants were all I had space for!

I’ve learned a lot about hemp and CBD since then. I’ve ran industrial sized plantations and labs where we bred newer, better, and more reliable strains. Then, after years of learning I wanted to share my knowledge of hemp and I had a lot (nearly two decades worth) to share. In that time I’ve dealt with every issue imaginable from:

  • How to best care for your hemp based on their strain
  • Getting quality seeds
  • Getting the best results
  • Assuring a return of investment

Now I want to share my experience with you!

That’s why in 2012, along with some of my friends, I created I Love Hemp Seeds (ILGH). It was a place where I could share in-depth details on everything people needed to know to grow crops that produced better results. The blog’s popularity grew quickly, and so did our following. I decided to make the most of this and bring together breeders from all over so people just like you had access to the best seeds the market has to offer.

Why? Simple. We love hemp. That’s why we made the process as easy as possible.

Every order is shipped for free to each and every U.S. state, Australia, New Zealand, and the UK, right from our base in Amsterdam.

Here’s the deal. Our goal is to help you get the best Hemp and CBD experience! That’s why we provide in-depth training resources to help you get the best results possible:

My hope is that you get the seeds, resources, and hemp you want. That’s why if there’s something you need you can’t find on our site let us know.
