CannaSystems has assembled a list of industrial sectors for the hemp market. These include Fibre and Core categories for Household items , Paper products, Technical textile, Construction materials, Bio-composites and more. Companies across a wide range of industries are potential candidates for industrial hemp applications.
Classic "chicken and egg" scenario. In order to fill an industrial size order, one must have sufficent crops in the ground. Then the harvesting and processing capacity to meet the specifications are required. Having acres of hemp is only valuable if you can reap the harvest. Taking the tops off the plant with a combine works - dumps the leaf in the windrow behind the machine and keeps the seed in the hopper. When that has been done, the stalk left standing must be mowed, dried and baled.
Then separating the stalk into fibre and core, processing the materials, packing and transporting the load. Once all of this is accomplished, large scale contracts are available.
