US (MN): St. Cloud State University granted hemp research license

CO2 GRO has announced the expanded research capabilities of their academic research partner, St. Cloud State University (“SCSU”). The State of Minnesota has granted SCSU a license for experimentation with commercial hemp production and processing.

GROW expects to sponsor hemp research with SCSU to optimize the use of its CO2 Delivery Solutions for hemp growth and metabolite production in valuable hemp plant cultivars, including commercial hemp CBD strains.

According to the company, SCSU’s research infrastructure includes 1) ability to grow commercial cultivars in an array of traditional and soil free techniques, 2) full plant material and metabolite (CBD) characterization onsite and 3) solvent and solvent free CBD extraction capabilities with a broad range of instrumentation for biomass and metabolite quantification.

John Archibald, GROW’s CEO, stated “This State approval of expanded SCSU hemp research capability will yield valuable scientific information to maximize commercial hemp growth profitability. Since the legalization of U.S. hemp growth, a number of indoor and outdoor U.S. organic hemp growers have expressed interest to use our CO2 Delivery Solutions technology.”
