Land & Property Development
We are experts in constructing your strategic real estate plan to take advantage of this enormous opportunity. What is your ROI per every 10 acres of land? Regardless of where your business fits into the industrial hemp ecosystem your business will have a footprint, permits to pull and real estate needs. Hemp can also be used for environmental remediation or to increase the profit of underperforming farmlands. Let us show you how to maximize your profits.
Certified Seeds, Farming & Harvesting
We have identified the market leaders in certified seeds and best practices in the US farming and harvesting space. Industrial Hemp production starts with selected certified and approved cannabis seeds (strains that have less than .3% of THC). The plants can be genetically altered for growth time, fiber strength, and CBD output. Learn about new technology, processes and intentional steps that protect against disease and encourage a quicker plant lifecycle. As a faster growing crop, proactive best practices pay high rewards.
Processing & Testing
We are partners with the most innovative and cost efficient processors and testing labs. Are you reporting the correct information to keep your lab or facility up to code? Having a reliable laboratory to test your biomass resources or products gives you valuable metrics for your organization. Learn about equipment, time savers, refining methods, and who to hire in order to maximize your yield per acre.
Supply Chain & Manufacturing
What is your supply chain and manufacturing strategy? We can help broker hemp biomass to fuel your production needs. Processed hemp can be made into plastics, fuels, hempcrete, hemp wood, nutrition supplements, foods, pharmaceuticals and much more.
