SEED-TO-OIL INTEGRITY

Not only are Hudson Hemp’s crops organic-regenerative, the plants themselves are custom developed to be the best for specific purposes, processed to maintain the full plant potential, and third-party tested for quality and potency.

BREEDING

Hudson Hemp works to improve a collection of germplasm for characteristics that include cannabinoid and terpene development, stable seed production, and other agronomic traits.

  • maximize cannabinoid production for CBD extraction
  • develop varieties with consistent and predictable traits
  • accelerate plant improvement without genetic modification
  • reduce the risk of pests, drought and disease

QUALITY EXTRACTION

Hudson Hemp plants go through on-site cryo-ethanol extraction and then short-path distillation. We use certified organic, food-grade ethanol that evacuates and transfers an emulsion from stage to stage in a recirculating closed loop with a 90% solvent recovery rate.

  • cryo-ethanol extraction method has years of well-developed regulatory guidelines and is classified as GRAS by the FDA; it is the preferred extraction method among concentrate manufacturers and regulators when compared to CO2 or hydrocarbon
  • short-path distillation allows thermal separation of high-molecular and high-boiling products at high yields and product quality; short residence time, the low evaporation temperature, and the immediate cooling of the concentrate minimizes thermal stress and decomposition of the product

THIRD-PARTY TESTED

Hudson Hemp works to ensure that our quality and testing set global standards. Metabolomic scans of the cannabinoid and terpene profiles allow us to identify and target effects of the finished product through extraction methodology, and against the genetic goals. Our in-house analyzer and HPLC, and third-party ProVerde Laboratories ensure that our potency and purity adhere to New York state standards.

    Our product is tested for:
  • 243 phytocannabinoids and 152 other bioactive compounds (terpenoids, flavonoids, phenols)
  • concentration of over 350 pesticide residues
  • concentration of 12 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
