Van Grow Biotechnology | Cannabinoid Profile

Problem | Current Landscape

  • CBD and other cannabinoids degrade immediately upon harvest when moisture is present.
  • After 30 days in storage, farmers experience a 50% loss in CBD.
  • Molds and fungus contribute to biomass degradation and are undesirable contaminants.
  • The end result is unusable inventory due to unacceptable CBD concentrations.
  • Low levels of CBD become uneconomical to extract.

Solution | New Landscape

  • Naturally occurring microbes are selected for their anti-fungal properties and amplified in our state of the art facility. 
  • Natural metabolites preserve cannabinoid levels upon application and reduce product loss. 
  • Laboratory tests show greater than 2 times more CBD and total cannabinoid after one month at ambient temperatures (post harvest conditions) as compared to untreated hemp.
