Blühen uses an efficient and safe ethanol extraction process. In order to process large quantities of hemp biomass, the material is washed in sub-zero ethanol, dissolving the CBD within the plant into the ethanol, and the resulting product of the extraction process is CBD crude oil.
There are several steps that can then be taken to produce various CBD-based products.
Crude oil is sent through an evaporator to remove any residual ethanol and produces clean crude. That product then goes through a short-path distillation process to separate out any remaining particles and produces 85% pure CBD oil. That distillate then goes to a crystallization chamber to produce isolate, a 99% pure CBD product in powder form.
Growers may use Blühen Botanicals to extract and process their hemp. Cost for crude oil production is $20 per pound for a minimum of 150 pounds and a maximum of 5,000 pounds of biomass. Cost for distillate is $30 per pound, and for isolate the cost is $60 per pound. *
A discount applies for biomass exceeding 5,000 pounds.
