All things processing facilities! So, you’re dreaming big with plans to start up your own hemp processing business. You think you’ve got it all figured out; what extraction methods you’ll use, potential investors to pitch to and what end products you’re going to make. But, there’s one factor in particular that demands more attention than you may have realized: The facility you’ll use!

There are so many considerations to choosing your facility that it may be dizzying to think about. You’ll need to factor in where your facility will be located, parking, power supply, packaging, occupancy requirements, local municipal regulations, C1D2 compliance, the startup scale of your operation, and much, much more. Before you are able to start anything in this business, the specifics of your facility are the first hurdle, but where do you begin, and how will you know what choices are the right ones to make?

In this episode of extrakTALKS, Dr. Jon discusses All Things Processing Facilities. From point A to point B, Dr. Jon is your guide to your startup plan covering everything you’ll need to consider when deciding your processing facility. From the very beginnings to your overall endgame, this episode will give you everything you need to ensure that your hemp processing facility is compliant, fully operational, and profitable for years to come.
