Stage 2 - Production
The production stage is tailored to the input of fresh or dried hemp biomass.
For fresh hemp, the whole plant is separated into stalk, and Leaf, Flower and Seed (LFS). We separate the LFS, then pass it through the dehydration process. We dehydrate rather than dry with heat in order to preserve the maximum quality and quantity of the cannabinoid, terpenoid and flavonoid profile. We believe this underpins the therapeutic efficacy of the end product.
For dried and stored hemp, which is already less than 10% water, the production process is focused on high volume extraction of isolates which is then sold to wholesalers.
We fully recycle both the stalk and each waste stream resulting from the extraction process, including the water. We are currently collaborating with a series of research and development partners to make value added products such as bioplastics, biofuel, recreational performance equipment and consumer packaging.
