You might have heard of hemp biomass in passing yet you probably don’t know what it is really all about. Hemp biomass is central to the majority of products available in cannabis dispensaries. The biomass is the starting point for converting other parts of hemp plants into profitable products.
Biomass is a term that refers to the leaves, stems and stalks of a hemp plant. Though biomass isn’t referenced often by the mainstream media, it is worth noting some refer to it as the bulk form of dried herb. Hemp biomass helps to extract CBD. Hemp biomass also modulates THC’s impact. Though hemp biomass has small amounts of THC, there is not enough of the psychoactive component to result in intoxication.
Hemp biomass components are dried in unison or separately. Once the drying process is complete, the components are combined and shredded for the sake of packaging. The hemp biomass is then sold in large quantities.
Biomass consisting of dried herb is often dried and allowed to cure for sale in the form of a pre-rolls or quantities such as eighths. However, this is not the extent of hemp biomass’s utility. Hemp biomass is also used as an alternative source for a wide array of goods including those of the industrial variety.
Hemp biofuel as ethanol or biodiesel has the potential to make a meaningful impact on the manner in which our planet is sustained. Hemp is capable of fermenting for the creation of the biofuel known as ethanol. Biodiesel is created with a pressing of the hemp seeds so their oils and fats extract.
The cannabis waste generated in the harvesting and curing process can be mulched for use with soil. Recycling such material in the form of products such as hempcrete and animal bedding provides considerable utility.
Hemp biomass with top-notch hemp buds allows for the creation of CBD isolates. Such isolates have upwards of 99.9% CBD. These isolates are available in powder or crystal form for vaporization, sublingual use or ingestion. CBD isolates are quite utilitarian in the sense that they are useful for treating a wide array of medical conditions. These isolates are tasteless, do not have an odor and do not cause even slight intoxication.
Live resin is a valuable extract distinct from isolates. Live resin is unique in its terpene content as well as its cannabinoid content. Live resin is different from isolates as isolates lack THC. Live resin is loaded with THC, meaning the fresh frozen version of this dried herb is loaded with the psychoactive ingredients consumers demand.
The best part about the fresh frozen version of the dried herb is it is not likely to degrade as occurs with the conventional curing and drying processes. Hemp biomass in the form of fresh frozen dried herb does not pose the risk of reducing its important and coveted qualities ranging from potency to flavor, odor, etc. Those who swear by the fresh frozen herb form are quick to testify it carries the strain’s distinctive odor and also produces the psychoactive component that creates feelings of euphoria.
Hemp biomass has a plethora of additional uses. As an example, it can be used to make fiber products, develop health remedies and create alternative fuels. Though few know it, hemp biomass can even be used to create fiber products, rope, insulation, paper and materials used for building. Hemp biomass’s cellulose fibers are sometimes used to produce bedding, auto parts, materials used in packaging and natural plastics.
Hemp has intrinsic oil that provides extensive utility in the context of health and beauty. Take a look at the ingredients listed in your beauty products and you are likely to find oil extracted from hemp in at least a couple. The seeds within hemp are loaded with omega fatty acids. These acids are sometimes blended with additional oils to form tinctures and medicines for all sorts of ailments ranging from high cholesterol, hypertension, acne and psoriasis.
The utility of hemp biomass is likely to expand to additional products as time progresses. If you were capable of time traveling a decade or two in the future, you would likely find hemp biomass has saturated the mainstream, providing functional utility for all different aspects of life.
