Hemp Value Extraction

The majority of CBD is extracted from hemp through two main processes: CO2 extraction and solvent extraction.CO2 extractionIn this process, carbon dioxide is under supercritical conditions – high pressure and low temperature – to isolate and preserve CBD. The CO2 method produces the cleanest, most isolated CBD oil that is free from chlorophyll, but requires much higher upfront fixed costs and a significantly steeper learning curve to perfect the process.

PanXchange® Hemp: Benchmarks & Analysis – May 2019

We would like to start this month’s newsletter with an update on PanXchange. At the end of April, PanXchange began on-boarding top-tier market participants onto the trading platform. This phase of the launch is to allow our market-makers a period of time to get comfortable negotiating online and building liquidity. We’re thrilled at how quickly these members took to online negotiations as we already have over $75 million worth of hemp products available for negotiations.

Post Harvest Processing

As hemp crops in the ground begin to mature, we’ve been continually asked by producers what’s going to happen to prices at harvest time. Anyone who gives a concrete answer on what way prices are going should quickly be ignored. Hemp is a new crop in many growing areas, and with so many variables inexperience affecting yields, the range of price trajectory is endless. That said, producers should know their options and use information from other agricultural markets to make smart decisions to reduce risk. Following other agricultural markets, main harvest should bring a large supply increase to markets, and with the year-over-year increase in planted acres, less developed storage and market options, and demand growth following a somewhat linear path, prices should see downward pressure at harvest.

PanXchange® Hemp: Benchmarks & Analysis – Apr 2019

The spot biomass market has seen consolidation between the Colorado, Kentucky and has generally transacted in the range of $3.30 to $4.50 per percentage point of CBD content (/point) throughout April.  At this point, hemp producers have either sold out of product or are holding positions, expecting prices to rise during the summer months. Although it is foreseeable that the biomass market could reach the mid $5/point range this summer, there has been increased reports about biomass quality degradation leading to questions on best practices for post-harvest storage.
