Maximize Nature’s Wellness Benefits without the Carbon Consequences

Environmental Impact

 

Environmentally Sustainable Life Scientists

We believe our responsibility is to provide access to safe and natural cannabinoids while doing no harm to the environment. Our foundation is rooted in the belief that environmentally sustainable farming & production techniques ultimately create value for our communities, our clients and our shareholders. 

All forms of cannabis plants create cannabinoids. Cannabinoid creation starts with a singular molecular compound called cannabigerol (CBG). As the cannabis plants grow and develop in nature, CBG naturally converts into  cannabidiol (CBD) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) as well as over 150 other cannabinoids. 

Since hemp and marijuana are both cannabis plants, we believe that hemp is the best cannabis plant for sustainable cannabinoid production because large scale hemp cultivation sequesters carbon, improves soil structure, and reduces water pollution whereas indoor marijuana grows do the opposite. 

Proven Sustainable Cannabinoid Production

Clēēn:tech has studied & mastered nature’s cannabinoid conversion process.  We have developed proprietary and patented techniques that can replicate that conversion process on demand with exacting precision in controlled & regulated environments & jurisdictions. 

In turn, clēēn:tech licenses our cannabinoid conversion technology to regulated cannabis businesses where allowed by law.  We also produce consumer formulations & devices for use by our business customers. 

Our formulations use cannabinoids and terpenes from hemp outside of the traditional indoor marijuana production environments.  Our devices are lead-free and inline with our sustainable mission.  

The clēēn:tech Difference

Environmental Benefit of Hemp

Hemp cultivation sequesters carbon and improves soil, air, and water quality

Indoor Marijuana Production = Unsustainable

To grow a plant indoors, Nature’s environment has to be mimicked through man-made carbon based energy inputs which is environmentally irresponsible.

Farmer Empowerment

Sustainable cash crop for small farmers

Health Awareness

Cannabinoids appeal to health-minded consumers

Conversion Technology = Organic Reaction ≠ Synthetic

Clēē:tech utilizes proprietary & patented conversion technology that produces an organic reaction whereby hemp derived CBD molecules convert into THC molecules. clēēn:tech based THC products are true and identical to the THC molecules found in indoor grown plants. 

“Synthetic THC / cannabinoids” are molecules that are produced by addition reactions, whereby two or more molecules are combined to create a compound that mimics the desired  cannabinoid. 

Clēēn:tech technology effectively allows regulated producers of cannabinoids the ability to convert CBD from hemp into THC oil, where allowed by law. The environmental impact of this technology will save the planet billions of tons of carbon pollution and allow for complete control of cannabinoid production.

Got Questions? We Have Answers!

  • What’s the difference between hemp and marijuana?

    • All cannabis is hemp.  Some hemp is called marijuana because of how much THC it contains at harvest.  When hemp is harvested and it contains less than .3% THC, we continue to call it hemp.  If hemp is harvested and it contains more than .3% THC, we further define it as Marijuana.  
    • Marijuana plants have been specifically bred to accelerate the CBG conversion into CBD and then to continue that conversion from CBD into THC at the fastest rates possible.
  • What are cannabinoids?

    • Cannabinoids are a family of super antioxidants and a mind-altering compound that are naturally produced by one’s own body and in the female flowers of cannabis plants.  The two most discussed cannabinoids are cannabidiol (CBD) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
    • There have been over one hundred and fifty cannabinoids that have been identified. THC is the only known cannabinoid that has shown to have any psychoactive affect on the endocannabinoid system.
  • What is the endocannabinoid system?

    • Cannabinoids provide antioxidant benefits, but they also provide wellness benefits by interacting with our endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is our body’s most intricate communication system and was discovered in the late 1980s while researchers were studying how cannabinoids interact on the cellular level.
    • Modern science has confirmed that our endocannabinoid system is directly involved with our immune response and hormone regulation. Cannabinoids’ ability to interact with our endocannabinoid system is unique to the cannabis family of plants and this is one of the reasons for the recent surge in interest around cannabinoids.
    • Besides naturally occurring cannabinoids, essential oils that are rich in aromatic terpenes may also be used to optimize the endocannabinoid system. 
  • What are hemp’s water requirements?

    • Hemp’s explosive growth and quick growing season allow it to be one of the most water-efficient crops a farmer could plant. As long as hemp has adequate water during the spring season it will be resilient enough to make it through drier summer months. 
    • Hemp has a long taproot that allows it to pull water and minerals from deep from the soil and these roots sequester carbon back into the farm soil. It is this expansive root system that naturally enhances the soil for the following crop. 
    • In a perfect world, hemp will get around 25 inches of rain per growth cycle and in some areas of the country, a drip irrigation system may be needed. When compared to alternative fiber and grain crops, hemp has a much smaller water footprint. Most importantly, hemp fiber could become a more sustainable solution and a more ethical solution than cotton.
  • What are the man-made energy inputs needed to produce THC through indoor marijuana production?

    • Marijunana plants are traditionally found near the equator where there is a constant temperature and equitable amounts of light and darkness.  
    • Growing scalable regulated & controlled marijuana plants indoors for THC oil, requires mimicking the natural forest on an industrial scale utilizing millions of square feet of man-made buildings. 
    • Each of those football sized buildings must be heated in the winter to 72 degrees fahrenheit and then reversely cooled in the summer. 
    • Each grow has to water and drain massive amounts of water from public utilities and is susceptible mold and pecticies 
    • Growing Marijunana plants inside is the most environmentally unsustainable horticulture practice known to man
