Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that you may be new to farming hemp, and want to equip you with the knowledge you need to make informed decisions. Below you will find answers to common questions we get from farmers. If you don't see your question here, feel free to contact us.

We specialize in the CBD hemp market, therefore, we are primarily after the flower and buds, where the highest CBD concentration can be found. We are currently creating a market for the stalk so it can be utilized as well.

Hemp and marijuana are completely different in their function, cultivation and application. Unfortunately, these differences didn’t stop our political leaders from grouping all Cannabis species as a Schedule 1 drug, banning it under the Controlled Substances Act in 1970. Even after 50 years, the government still barely distinguishes the two plants. Although new legislation is addressing this discrepancy, progress has been slow. In its application, hemp and marijuana serve completely different purposes. Marijuana, as it is widely known, has psychoactive properties and is used both recreationally as well as for medical purposes. Hemp, on the other hand, is used in a variety of applications that marijuana couldn’t possibly be used in. These include healthy dietary supplements, skin products, clothing, and textiles. Overall, the hemp plant is known to have over 25,000 applications.

Biomass, by definition, is the entire plant grown from the roots to the tops of the stems including flowers, stalk and branches. Biomass is the starting point used to create the highly concentrated CBD end product through an extensive refinement process. Our partnered labs can turn it into either isolate (powder) or distillate (oil).

  1. We set up our partner farms to grow a minimum of 2000 lbs. per acre.
  2. Current prices for hemp biomass range from $5.00 to $16 per pound, depending on the CBD concentration. Example: 2000 lbs./acre X $8.40/lb. = $16,800/acre gross.
  3. The rough net profit is anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 per acre, with a maximum of roughly $30,000 for extremely high-CBD biomass.
  4. If you do not have your own processing facilities, you can calculate the expenses for these services at one of ours.
  5. Up to 1⁄3 more net profit is generated via a Lab Split/Tolling Agreement because byproducts can also be monetized.
