You can find people using CBG biomass across the centuries. It can make medicine, beauty products, fibre, fabrics, and more. Today, people are even turning hemp biomass into an energy and fuel source. Extracting and distilling hemp biomass to become these products requires expert industry knowledge and top-quality machinery. At Arbor Vita8, our industry know-how and high-end equipment mean you’ll get a superior product when processing your CBG biomass.
Once you harvest your hemp crop, and remove the flowers, the leftover plant parts are your biomass. They undergo their own process to prepare for the extraction of its lucrative oils. Milling and drying are the first steps to ensure the hemp biomass is in a more stable form for extraction. This helps yield better results. Time is of the essence though since mold and mildew can creep in and sabotage your hemp crop. Getting to a drying machine is imperative. At Arbor Vita8, our high-quality machine can dry up to 70,000 pounds of biomass per hour.
CBG is one of the most elusive compounds in a hemp plant. This means you’ll have to harvest and dry more hemp for CBG than CBD. Knowing this in advance can help you plant the right sized crop. It can take thousands of pounds of hemp biomass to extract only small amounts of CBG.
CBG biomass is ready for extraction after it finishes drying. This doesn’t mean it’s completely dry though. Hemp is considered “dry” once its moisture level is at or below 10 percent. After CBG biomass dries properly, it’s ready for extraction.
The most common by-product extracted from biomass is called hemp crude oil. Our extractor at Arbor Vita8 can produce up to 5,000 pounds of crude oil per day. Crude is just a starting off point though. Oil from CBG biomass can get processed down further into other compounds.
Full-spectrum distillate occurs at the first stage of additional refining. It retains more of its original compounds, which means it can have up to 0.3 percent THC.
Broad-spectrum distillate is a further refined version of full-spectrum. It’s considered THC-free, so can also be referred to as t-free distillate.
Like broad-spectrum distillates, isolates typically contain no measurable levels of THC. Often available in a powder, you can discreetly add CBG isolate to food and beverages.
Once you’ve refined your final product down far enough, it’s time to connect with manufacturers making the CBG products consumers want to buy. Popular options include tinctures, vape cartridges, edibles, and isolate powder, not to mention capsules for medicinal purposes.
