Pacific Northwest Hemp Industries Association (PNW HIA)
Supporting the hemp industries in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho


Our Mission

The mission of the PNW HIA, a 501(c)(6) membership-based non-profit trade association, is to advance the hemp economy in the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, as well as to educate the market for the benefit of our members, the public, and the planet.

Who We Are

As the first regional chapter of the Hemp Industries Association (HIA), we are industry stakeholders working to connect and grow the hemp industries in the Pacific Northwest. The HIA has been working to promote and protect the U.S. hemp industries since 1994. Read this post to learn more about the HIA.
