How is Hemp Stalk (Fiber) Processed?

There are multiple revenue streams from industrial cannabis, i.e. the hemp seed, hemp leaf extraction, and hemp fibers. You can even take left over raw plant material and burn it to pierce the activated charcoal market as well, but many people do not understand the processing hemp stalk goes through.

Through a machine known as a decorticator, hemp stalks are fed, smashed, and inevitably separated from their collective fibrous stalk and “decorded”.

The hemp comes out of the other side of the machinery as raw fiber ready for the next stage in the value added process.
