The owners of the BZ Sciences company, Zach Rohr and Den Davis, are converting raw hemp into CBD oil in the previous peanut butter plant at Cannon Falls for Minny Grown product.
The government of the United States had revived the farm bill almost a year ago. The production of CBD or cannabidiol is legalized across the state. In 2019, the sale of CBD reaches $1 billion, and Minnesota producers are hoping for the rewards.
BZ Sciences company owners grow hemp by themselves and get the rest from the farmers of Minnesota. The hemp plants in large quantities are brought from Mankato farms. The raw product is entirely natural and Minnesota-grown.
The Operation Chief, Ben Davis, said that it had been a year they are working on it, and it was a great journey.
Before extracting the hemp flowers, they will mill it and distill it by using a cold ethanol tank. After that, it is transferred into an evaporator so that it can extract the ethanol and leave the CBD oil.
Rohr said that everything they cultivate in Minnesota is organic, and they are providing a supply chain to offer farmers an alternative crop to grow.
According to Davis, the hemp cultivated in the Midwest is much more sustainable because it is carbon positive.
