A new, 2,400-square-foot CBD extraction facility in Orangeburg County is holding a ribbon cutting today to celebrate its grand opening.

The fully operational facility brings the processing operations of hemp producer Nature’s Highway, located on a 3,000-acre hemp and sod farm in Neeses, in-house and provides hemp extracting services to other companies, according to a news release from Carolina CannaTech, an industrial hemp company based in Charlotte.  

“Our food-grade facility enables us to bring hemp-processing in-house, giving us greater control of quality and cost,” said John Jameson, co-founder of Carolina CannaTech, in the release. “We now grow, harvest, and extract our hemp on-site, furthering our mission to vertically integrate our company and make CBD more accessible and affordable to the consumer.”

Carolina CannaTech partnered with New River Distilling Company, based in Boone, N.C., to design and build the facility’s equipment and systems. The facility uses high-tech extraction and evaporating methods to turn farm-grown hemp into crude oil and eventually into a distillate used in Nature’s Highway’s products.
