It all starts with seeds in the ground. One of the most difficult parts of starting your hemp farm is acquiring the seed, as you must buy it from outside the United States. When selecting a strain of the cannabis plant, you need to be sure that the THC content of the plant will not exceed 0.3% at the time of harvest. If the THC content is higher than 0.3%, it is legally marijuana and must be destroyed. We have tested more than 15 genetic strains of hemp for large scale farming and believe we have identified the best genetics available. These seeds are planted between the third week of May and the first week of June.
The hemp is harvested in early October when the flowers have ripened with seeds. When the hemp is harvested, it becomes biomass.
In 2019, we have 600 acres planted that will be ready for harvest in late September, including over 100 acres of a high CBD variety. We use our own biomass to ensure we have full control the final product. Our investment in our farms is extensive and enables us to control the process and create the best yields of high quality consistent product. As we grow we will be partnering with other farms to share what we have learned, and ensure we have enough availability of biomass that meet our rigorous standards for a final product that exceeds our customer's expectations.
