Cultivation

CBDRx  has developed a unique, proprietary strain of  hemp after extensive genetic testing and breeding of various hemp cultivars, achieving a plant rich in high levels of cannibidiol (CBD) and a broad spectrum of cannabinoids, high terpenes, and very low THC.  While most  industrial hemp cultivars contain CBD at only 2-4% by weight,  CBDRx cannabinoid levels average 12-14%.

Plant Genetics

Tissue Culture Cloning

Tissue Culture Cloning

Using protocols developed by our agronomists, we are developing specific strains, which have been grown, flowered and tested at all stages of development to produce up to 100,000 female replicas, or clones, of our high quality female hemp cultivars. These clones begin the maturation process first inside our R&D facility, then in compliant greenhouses and are finally planted on our Pueblo Farm until harvested for extraction and raw material ingredient usage.

Growing Practices

Our agronomists use a protocol of select, all-natural soil amendments (instead of petroleum fertilizers or man-made additives, we use humates, zeolites and microbial elements) that are tailored in their composition and ratios to best support the needs & properties of our farm's soil and create the optimal nutrient-rich environment. We are strictly herbicide & pesticide-free. Our soil amendment & fertilization protocol coupled with other sustainable farming practices allows for a cost effective, robust and consistent plant yield. Turns out, what's good for plants, soil, water & people is also great for large-scale cultivation of high-quality viable hemp in Colorado's outdoor environment.

Agriculture's Hemp Extract Future

Although the U.S. hemp market is estimated to be approaching $1 billion, whereas the U.S. medical marijuana market is estimated to be $20 billion, CBD/cannabinoid-rich oils appear to be becoming the fastest growing segment within the U.S. As hemp continues its inroad into our culture, we anticipate that CBD/cannabinoid extractions from medicinal hemp will be Agriculture's next big window of opportunity and Colorado's next frontier. We predict CBD and the other cannabinoids will revolutionize agriculture as much as medicine.
