Hemp Defined with FLCBank

Healthline describes Hemp as cannabis containing 0.3 percent or less THC content by dry weight. It can be used to produce products like:

  • Paper 
  • Plastic
  • Animal Feed
  • Clothing and Apparel
  • Food
  • Oil
  • Concrete
  • Automobiles

At FLCBank, we believe the state of Florida, its farmers, businesses and residents will benefit greatly from this new industry. It’s important to note though, many questions still remain in Hemp Banking. 

FLCBank: A Partner You Can Trust

  • Checking Accounts 
  • Online Banking 
  • Merchant Services

To try and secure the success of every business we work with, we have taken the time to:

  • Educate our bankers in all aspects of Hemp and CBD Business.
  • Collect software needed to monitor FLCBank’s adherence to the Florida’s Hemp Program Rules.
  • Create internal procedures and controls that allow FLCBank to provide banking services and ensure FLCBank’s compliance with laws and regulations.

Currently, financial regulators such as the FDIC and OCC do not plan to issue specific guidance on hemp. Instead, they’re depending on institutions, like FLCBank, to provide those services in a safe, sound manner. 

Financial institutions which aren’t focused on hemp often decide to exit the business and exiting their clients happens frequently.
