Hemp Extraction Lab

How Our Extraction Lab Works

State of the Art


Nature's Highway has invested in a state-of-the-art extraction facility that was built on-site at our farm in Neeses, SC. In the extraction facility, we process hemp biomass which we have organically grown just down the road, into CBD crude oil which becomes the first building block of our top-quality finished products.  

Lab Trained Team


Under the watchful eye of our professional lab-trained team, led by Aarond Hidgkins, we extract up to 96% of the total cannabinoids from the hemp biomass without the use of any harsh chemicals, solvents, or other synthetic materials. Once the biomass has been processed, the extraction continues in a roto-evaporator or "rotovap" which slowly turns the extracted cannabinoids over a warm water bath, evaporating the elements we no longer need, and leaving us with a full-spectrum CBD crude product that we can distill further into various profiles for our many products.

Seed to Store


We are proud to be a seed-to-store CBD grower, processor, and manufacturer, and our extraction facility is a vital part of that process.
