Partnering opportunity

A Chinese research institution offers technology service for cannabis byproduct application in feed industry


A Chinese professional research institution for hemp crops has mastered the technology of extracting waste from industrial cannabis to produce feed and animal health products, and hopes to provide customers with advanced technical solutions in the form of technical services or technical cooperation.

Partner sought

Animal husbandry, aquaculture customers and feed producers with high demand for environmentally friendly feed


The institution is a national comprehensive professional research institution engaged in the research of hemp crops in China. Cannabis CBD (cannabidiol) is generally extracted from inflorescence tissue, while other parts of the crop are not effectively utilized. The agency found that industrial cannabis leaf stems are high-quality green fodder. After years of research and practice, the following technical services can be provided according to customer needs and local conditions. 1.After taking off the flower leaves required for extraction of the CBD, the remaining stem and leaf can be used as raw materials to carry out evaluation on nutrition and feed value , feed processing , nutritional formula and feed product development; 2.Technical research on the development of cannabis natural active extracts as livestock feed additives or pet health care foods 3.Research on mechanized production technology such as industrial cannabis harvesting and feed processing 4.research on industrial cannabis as a fungus substrate, develop its biogas feed utilization technology

Advantages and innovations

1.waste of industrial cannabis can be turned into economic corp. The industrial cannabis leaf stem is rich in nutritive value, high in crude protein content, and rich in natural active functional ingredients such as polyphenols. 2.benefits the environment. The large-scale production of modern farming is likely to lead to a decline in the production performance and product quality of livestock and poultry, and even cause disease or death. For this reason, antibiotics are widely used as feed additives in feeds, which leads to problems such as drug residues, excessive excretion, pollution to the environment, and long-term use of drug-resistant strains. Plant-derived polyphenols have attracted much attention due to their superior antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-disease effects. They have broad application prospects in anti-stress, growth-promoting and health care for livestock and poultry. Industrial cannabis stems and leaves are rich in polyphenols with strong anti-oxidation and anti-inflammatory activities. The feed application of cannabis stems and leaves can reduce or even replace the use of antibiotics.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly.
