While Oregon wildfires raged during the month of September 2020, hemp growers and processors held their breath fearing for the well-being of their crops and subsequent products. FSOil, a CO2 extraction and processing facility located on Iverson Family Farms in Woodburn Oregon was just under 10 miles from the Beachie Creek fire. The companies vertically integrated system conducted a multi-level analysis on impacts from the smoke and ash from field to oil.
We pulled multiple samples of soil, ash, flower, and biomass throughout the duration of the fires in order to determine the health of the plants translating to the oil.
The trials addressed:
- Pesticides and heavy metals
- Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
- Smoke Taint
Based on our data we aim to continue guiding the industry towards solutions for their hemp crops and products. Our goal is to help propel the research in this field forward concerning future natural disasters and unexpected events.
