As more and more farmers join the cannabis industry in Oregon, many are interested in getting into the lucrative CBD industry. Now that the 2020 growing season has come to an end, it’s time for farmers to find buyers to sell their hemp biomass too. While it is always recommended to presell your harvest or have buyers lined up beforehand, farmers that haven’t had the opportunity to do this need to get serious about selling their biomass. Unlike other cash crops, hemp can’t be stored in silos after harvest. For farmers growing CBD seed, here are our tips for selling your hemp biomass and getting the best profit return.
Before we get started, it’s important to define the term hemp biomass. In the hemp world, this term can refer to two completely different things which can lead to a lot of confusion. Hemp biomass can either refer to the flowers or buds of the plant which contain the most significant cannabinoid and terpene content or it can refer to all other parts of the plant except the flowers. When discussing hemp biomass in this article, we’re using it to describe specifically the flowers or buds used for CBD production.
We always recommend doing your own local market research before setting a price for your hemp biomass. While there are various factors that will impact the value of your biomass, the biggest factor is the amount of CBD it contains. For farmers that grow hemp with low concentrations of CBD, you won’t be able to get the most value per pound. The more CBD content you have, the higher the price you can achieve. Investing in the right CBD seed is crucial– you’ll need to find high-quality genetics that has high CBD and low THC content.
