Earlier in the month, Hemp Inc announced the purchase of a legal hemp CBD extraction unit from NuAxon BioScience. This will be used to process raw hemp into cannabinoid (CBD) extracts and oils.
Cannabis plants bred for industrial hemp produce high levels of cannabinoid, or CBD. We can separate the hemp plants from the flowering plants to isolate them for their medicinal properties. We have since realized this would be a great opportunity for Hemp, Inc. to take advantage of and capitalize on it. The infrastructure is in place and we’re happy to be adding the CO2 Supercritical Extraction unit,” noted Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC COO David Schmitt.
Hemp Inc is currently gearing up as the Industrial Hemp Commission, in North Carolina is now accepting applications for its pilot program, to grow industrial hemp for research. With commission regulations in place, the company can finalize contracts with farmers for the next 30 days. State agriculture laws in North Carolina dictate that the crops should not contain over 0.3% THC so agents will be monitoring the crops, so as to ensure that the requirements are met.
