Even in the military-industrial complex associated with the use of hemp raw materials there are significant problems. On paper, there are programs related to the possibility of using hemp raw materials for the benefit of the military-industrial complex of the country. However, all design professionals Russian military-industrial complex in contrast to the similar already used in NATO countries are divided about the current realities - there is not enough resource base, practically destroyed both primary and deep processing.
 
Normal development of the modern Russian konoplevodstva prevents a number of key factors. It makes no sense to describe the well-known problems associated with the lack of a normal investment climate, technology, export-oriented markets, etc. The aim of this publication is the need for a brief analysis of the negative special factors relating exclusively to the Russian konoplevodstva.
 
The lack of effective legal support konoplevodstva
 
It does not give the industry to develop normally a huge presence of administrative barriers, which the representatives of regulatory authorities actively use for their own benefit associated with regular interventions in the activities of government agencies konoplevodcheskih companies. For example, a conflict of law allows law enforcement officers to "see" or "ignore" the activities of Russian growers. On the one hand Decree №460 - 20.07.07 resolves to cultivate for technical purposes hemp varieties included in the relevant public register of the plants, on the other drug laws prohibit in Russia to grow all kinds and varieties of cannabis.
 
But there are plenty of plans for the development konoplevodstva various subjects of the RF, the RF government regulations and regional bodies of executive and legislative authorities on Subsidies and grants, allowing the paper to develop the industry, but in fact actually "cut the budget."
 
Problems in breeding and seed production
 
According to Russian growers "State structures it has withdrawn in matters related to modern konoplevodstvom. The Russian Federation has for a long time ignored the most highly profitable branch of agriculture." According to the statements of Russian breeders - the basic direction of breeding in Russia is the creation of varieties and hybrids, not containing narcotic compounds or their low (less than 0.003%) content, and the derived class must differ increased yield seed or fiber.
 
While in Russia no one talks about the medical direction konoplevodstva, does not try to answer the question - why waste resources on the creation of varieties with a THC content of zero if under Russian law allowed varieties with 0.1% of a controlled substance. The inertia of thinking Russian breeders and seed growers leads to so that limited resources are spent on useless projects (creation of dioecious hemp varieties).
 
Selection and study of hemp in Russia are engaged in several research institutions - Krasnodar Research Institute of Agriculture, Institute of Plant (St. Petersburg), Penza Agricultural Research Institute, Chuvash Agricultural Research Institute (Novocheboksarsk). Despite the fact that the Russian Federation is positioned in the presence of about 26 national hemp varieties malonarkoticheskoy, until recently, more than half of commercial seed companies in Russia bought in Ukraine. Faced with the inability to provide normal seed material governmental structures, individual producers of industrial hemp crops technical investing financial resources in building their own breeding kennels and are making efforts to develop new or maintain private interests registered in the Russian Federation malonarkoticheskoy varieties of hemp not only Russia but also Ukraine. A current research in the field of cannabis breeding conducted by public institutions designed to meet the constantly growing needs of private investors - company "Konopleks" konoplevodstva Development Fund, etc.
 
Crops and Processing
 
Interest in industrial crops industrial hemp in Russia is growing every year. For example in 2016 the total crop area was about three thousand hectares. Lack of quality seed is one of the reasons that the current Russian konoplevodstvo currently unable to cope with the needs of even the domestic market, not to mention the opportunity to enter the markets of Europe, AsiaNorth or South America. For example, in 2015, it produced about 400 tonnes of hemp fiber, and the need for it is only in the domestic market reached 1,000 tons, so the lack of raw material processors have been forced to buy abroad in Russia.
 
Even in the military-industrial complex associated with the use of hemp raw materials there are significant problems. On paper, there are programs related to the possibility of using hemp raw materials for the benefit of military-industrial complex of the country. There are plans for the replacement powders in the rocket and artillery weapons with nitrocellulose cotton to hemp, cannabis use biocomposites in armored vehicles, aircraft and aerospace products. There are experimental samples of military uniforms made of hemp fabrics, etc. However, all design professionals Russian military-industrial complex in contrast to the similar already used in NATO countries are divided about the current realities - there is not enough resource base, practically destroyed both primary and deep processing.
