Future Farm Technologies (FFRMF) announced that its team at the Huntington Park extraction facility had extracted its first CBD batch using organic grape alcohol that gave the result of a highly pure, potent and effective medicinal product.
“We believe this alcohol extraction technology is the best extraction equipment on the market today,” says William Gildea, CEO of Future Farm. “The ability to process large amounts of cannabis flower into highly purified concentrates from day one will immediately benefit California’s medical marijuana community.”
The company posted a video from its extraction facility and can be found here.
Future Farm said, “The extraction equipment is designed to be able to rapidly scale the manufacture of premium cannabis oil to supply the growing demand for cannabis concentrates in the state of California. The equipment utilizes a closed-loop system to produce high quality oil in a high throughput system with minimal maintenance and labor.”
The company had acquired 250 pounds of high quality trim from producers in northern California of both THC and CBD strains. All the trim was tested to make sure it was free from pesticides and microbiological contamination. Future Farms said that the CBD product was suitable for patients that did not want any THC psychotropic effects. In a statement the company said it was “Working toward completing multiple purchase orders for its whole flower and extracted oil products that are expected to be completed in early September.”
Future Farms also gave an update on its Riverside County facility, which will be harvesting at the end of August. The company said it “Will be able to use this first harvest to execute a side-by-side comparison of its own LED grow lights versus the standard High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lights. The HPS lights are currently consuming 1000 watts per light whereas the Company’s LED Canada grow lights are utilizing 550 watts per light. The Company expects to use data from the harvest to better understand the savings potential per kilowatt-hour over the lifecycle of each plant.”
“We are eagerly anticipating the harvest data from the cultivation facility and expect to yield in excess of 1.5-lbs per light. In addition, the extraction operations are developing well and we expect to soon provide our investors with revenue production. We have been working closely with potential customers to understand their needs to ensure that we provide them with the high-quality product that they expect. We are adjusting operations real-time to ensure we can provide them with consistent supply for ongoing long-term contracts,” says Mr. John Sweeney, Future Farm’s COO.
