Processing systems for industrial hemp are critical to wide application of supply chain material streams. Key to this is processing, which many off-the-shelf machines are designed to do. We have suggestions regarding workable equipment.
Modern machine technology designed for the industrial hemp sector is sorely needed in the market. Since hemp (cannabis) became outlawed, the entire hemp industry missed the industrial revolution. As farm technology, materials technology and manufacturing technology advanced rapidly, industrial cannabis was largely ignored. This has served to cripple development as the existing market is very small. Here in Canada we grow 38 million acres of canola.... and a mere 130 thousand acres of cannabis. Here in Ontario, we grow 3 million acres of corn but just 3 thousand acres of hemp.
Companies that manufacture farm equipment are simply not interested in a tiny market segment. It's not worth spending the R&D money, the engineering time and fabrication costs to develop a machine that just a few farmers will buy in a small market. This may change in the next five years.... once the acres grown reach critical mass. In the meantime, the hemp sector has a problem: how to process the stalk materials.
Bringing modern technology to the cannabis fibre processing industry in North America. Higher yields, superior product & modern industrial level production are KEY to this market. R-2 technology works on dry material to extend seasonal machine run time and production value. The R-2 system is designed to processes baled & stored (round baled is preferred) raw stalk material. R-2 will also process retted stalk. Total throughput ranges from one ton per hour up to four tons per hour depending on automation which increases the production volume. R-2 engineering design developed over ten years has produced a world class solution over previous technology.
Estimated return on capital investment is under two years with sufficient crop production.
We will be delivering R-2 processing machines to farms across North America this year.
CannaSystems will supply raw hemp fibre for industrial purposes.

Over the years a number of patents for processing industrial hemp have been designed. The earliest we've found was 1740 with a wide array of variations and designs since then. Given the state of the industry, one might conclude that the hemp sector has missed the industrial revolution.
This is a collection of some of the patents done since 1906: 1919 1941 1949 1956 up to 2006. A few new patents have turned up.
1919 Schlichten Patent. This was one of the few decorticators to make it to commercial use. The inventor, George Schlichten died four years later. Designs from Russian, Germany and Ireland came into the market. You can still find old Schlichten units in France and Russia from the 1960's that are still working.
Designs done over the years tend to be somewhat similar. From field designs for processing green stalk to large scale systems to process up to 10 tons per hour.
D-8 Decorticator Patent 2006
CannaSystems offers accredited investors and interested parties an opportunity to participate directly in the industrial hemp sector.
CannaSystems Canada Inc. is currently executing our next phase in hemp farming and processing machinery projects.
CannaSystems is developing an inter-linked portfolio of companies involved in the production of hemp; from its initial cultivation to wholesale materials delivered to product developers and distributors.
Hemp farmers with existing operations are invited to participate in our decorticator project Strategic Alliance.
CannaSystems will be developing a field harvester and a large-scale central decortication facility in the future.
