I’m considering offering some smaller scale (500lbs a week) hemp toll processing.
I know this is pretty tiny compared to most operations but I figure there’s some smaller hemp farmers out there that only grew a few acres and don’t have enough for most labs to even consider.
Considering how cheap cbd crude/distillate/isolate is now, this is what prices I’m considering that would still be worthwhile.
$3/lb to W&D crude
$4/lb to distillate
$5/lb to isolate
I figure with 10% cbd biomass it would be looking like this cost for the farmer.
30lbs * 3 = $90 to produce kg of W&D crude
50lbs * 4 = $200 to produce kg of distillate
75lbs * 5 = $375 to produce kg of isolate
Minimum percentage for biomass would be 10% cbd and farmer would need to provide coa showing their material tested at that within the last few months.
I may consider split processing for material of at least 10% cbd as well but it would need to be a 50/50 split however.
I’m located in Southern Oregon.
