Our family farm has been farming for generations in the Midwest. This assures the health of the nutrient-rich soil that is critical to producing our high-quality organic products.
After harvesting, we test again to confirm the final cannabinoid levels and to again ensure that the material is contaminant-free. After extracting the cannabinoid oil from the flower using ultra low-temperature ethanol, we test the resultant oil before distilling it and testing it again.
All of our ingredients are derived from organically farmed hemp. Full vertical integration allows us to run and manage all processes related to the production of these raw materials.
Stix, a craft botanical extractor, specializes in producing high grade distillate from the hemp plant. Building upon traditional processing methods in removing the plants essence, Stix has developed efficient techniques which deliver cost effective oils without compromising quality.
Quality Is the benchmark at Stix. We started our company knowing we could do better than what is on the market- not a little better, but worlds better. We know this because the products we tested came up short. How short? If a product listed its weight, it was short by at least 10%. If a product’s label said it contained a certain amount of CBD, most of the time it came up short. What really opened our eyes was the “abracadabra” marketing method of CBD sellers presenting a QR code on their product, which would lead to you to a third-party lab report. This leads the consumer to believe that the company isn’t hiding anything because they have reports. However, when we looked behind the curtain, these lab reports were years out of date or were unable to be matched up to the products.
This was our opportunity to set a higher bar for processing. We wanted to produce a high-quality final product, which meant we would have to start a hemp processing company from the ground up. We knew we had to figure out a way to collect data to have predictable outcomes and to ensure our processing was up to our standards. Therefore, we invested in high end, state of the art lab equipment to test every step of our processing. The equipment along with our qualified lab team helps to assure our processing is consistent and transparent. This gives Stix Enterprises a clear advantage, setting us apart.
Our extraction process is based on the tried-and-true method of extracting essential botanical oils from plants using high grade ethanol. This time-proven method is simple, safe, and scalable. During our thirteen-month startup we developed our methods to prove we have the ability to scale up our processing of hemp. This learning process took us from producing just 175 pounds a day to safely and consistently processing over one ton of hemp flower each day.
Our processing capacities are crafted to our clients’ needs.
We currently process the following:
High concentrate hemp bio wash
Base oil (Crude)
Decarboxylated base oil (Crude)
High purity distillate (80-85%)
CBD/ T-Free Distillate or Isolate
