Reaping the Benefits: 3 Ways We Harvest Our HempAugust 3rd, 2018
By now, you’re probably aware of the benefits of CBD oil extracted from hemp plants. And you probably also remember that at Innovative Separations, we have complete control over our hemp cultivation and CBD extraction. In fact, we oversee every stage of this process, from seed, to plant, to extraction.
Here in Oregon, we’re making our way through the growing season. Our hemp plants are looking wonderful and healthy, and everything is going according to plan. We’re dedicated to getting the highest-quality CBD oil, isolates, and other products from our hemp plants, all to allow our customers the relief and comfort they derive from this all-natural substance.
And since harvest season is right around the corner, we thought we’d share some of our hemp harvesting methods with you to demonstrate the care and attentiveness with which we handle our crops.
Buck and Shuck
With this method of hemp harvesting, we remove the plant from the soil and quickly take off the leaves from the plant. Then, we carefully and gently remove the product, like flowers and other essential materials, from the stalk. This can be done either by hand or using a machine. Once we’re finished, the plants are immediately placed in a hemp drier, and will later be processed and undergo the CBD extraction process.
The Fast Freeze
In this process, we pull the hemp plants from the ground, then promptly place them into a freezer. Inserting them into this extremely cold chamber exposes them to sub-zero temperatures and turns the water inside them to ice crystals. Then, the pressure inside the chamber can be dropped to completely remove the moisture from the product, leaving dry material ready to have CBD extracted from it.
An Exact Extraction
The third technique we use to harvest our hemp is to simply remove the plant from the soil, then bring it directly to our facility to go through the process of extraction. This quick and immediate approach allows us to retain the freshness of the plant.
At Innovative Separations, we utilize a variety of harvesting and extraction methods to provide our customers with the best CBD products available. To order CBD oil, isolate, or any of our other products, call us at 800-787-0018 today!
