Arbor Vita8’s new hemp facility in Alabama will manufacture distillate, crude oil, and other products.

Seed-to-sale hemp company Arbor Vita8 announced the opening of a new 75,000-sq-ft hemp processing facility in Phenix City, AL on Tuesday that will support the agriculture and manufacturing industries in the southwest US.

“In order for the industry to be successful everyone needs to be winning. That means farmers grow crops they can get processed, processors can process quality biomass they can sell to manufacturers, and manufacturers get a great value on quality extract for use in their products,” Jason Sirotin, chief executive officer of Arbor Vita8 said in a company press release. “Whether farmers are working with us or not, farmers should not put a seed in the ground unless they have a clear path to processing.”

An industrial dryer installed in the site can dry 10,000 lb/hr of biomass. The company also acquired industrial extraction equipment that can process up to 5,000 lb of hemp per day.

Arbor Vita8 produces crude hemp oil, distillate, terpenes, and CBG and CBN extracts.
