CLC’s proven ability to grow cannabis efficiently outdoors in its first two growing seasons has optimized its yields for profitable production to develop premium distilled oil with greater commercial value. One of the company’s main goals heading into the 2022 growing season was to increase the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol-rich oil extracted from dried biomass, which is largely dependent on the genetic makeup of a given strain. .

Final remarks

CLC Master Grower Nicco Dehaan commented, “Growing cannabis always has its challenges every year from which you learn and adapt. That said, the team and I are extremely pleased with the progress of our 2022 harvest. A common misconception is that our business is strictly driven by quantitative factors such as biomass volume. While it’s important to maximize the amount you can farm from each square meter of land, if your goal is to extract oil, there are other crucial considerations that will dictate how much you can extract and the concentration of oil. Associated THC. We are confident, based on our analysis and preliminary results from recently introduced strains, that we will achieve improved yields based on more milligrams of THC in the biomass. Now it’s time for us to execute the next phase.
