Executive Summary

Bright Star Scientific LLC is raising funds to purchase a biomass processing machine and open a processing facility. Industrial Hemp is used to produce valuable products that are legal to sell to the general public, when they have less than 0.3% Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Those products, including Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabigerol (CBG) and several others, are very valuable in the marketplace.  We will start with CBD  and CBG in phase one, pay off all lenders, and then purchase the unit processing machines to create carbon related products in phase two. The machine, The Hemp Gobbler, is a low cost, easy to operate, patent-pending “Swiss Army Knife Type” BioMass Modular Processing System. It has been designed and tested and will be used for the conversion of approximately two tons per day.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, has been identified as useful for creating a healthy human body.  Overwhelming official and anecdotal evidence has proven that many Cannabinoids have a positive effect on people and animals. CBD oil has been quickly incorporated into many over-the-counter consumer products and has experienced a remarkable growth to date.  The CBD product market started just a few short years ago and is developing quickly; it is at an early stage.

The production facility will consist of an 8’ X 40’ portable Hemp Gobbler mounted on skids and carried by a flat-bed trailer. Additional processors will be added as needed and funded from revenues.

The system will be fabricated by a very established engineering firm based in Houston, TX called SepPro Systems (http://www.sepprosystems.com/).   The equipment will be delivered to the processing site approximately sixteen weeks from the order date. It is expected to be in service within 15 days after delivery and operating at capacity within the following 30 days.

The Hemp Gobbler is energy efficient and produces gas by-products which can be used during the process, thereby reducing utility costs and fossil fuel consumption.

The process does not use solvents such as ethanol, CO2, or any other. That fact means that there will automatically be at least 20%-30% more Cannabinoids harvested because solvents dissolve plant matter.  This green system is a pyrolysis machine, utilizing heat to vaporize the Cannabinoids and turning the stems and stalks to biochar. The gas that is released by the plant biomass in the process will be used to provide energy for the machine.

We have many options for sourcing biomass  as there are many producers.  However, we are building a seed to shelf system with three other farming and final manufacturers that will utilize the very best core competencies of each group. More details later.  This machine is an integral part of that plan.

Financial Details

Bright Star Scientific LLC is raising $2.75 million through debt financing which is offered to lenders with a 20% annual interest rate on a fully amortized 24-month loan with payments starting at the beginning of the month after the completion of funding.

$1,130,000 will be used for the Hemp Gobbler and related machinery, and $1,454,225 will be used for startup and Operating Expenses, and materials to begin production.

The conservative projections are based on the following assumptions: 

  • Low cost feedstock will be acquired from several sources, namely other extractors who have low performing machinery and are done with the biomass. It usually goes to the landfill or is burned as agricultural waste. We know there is at least 1-3% CBD in the biomass that has been run once. There are also many farmers who are growing Hemp and have tonnage of biomass to sell inexpensively.
  • Two, 10-hour per day processing cycles from one Hemp Gobbler.
  • 4,000 lbs. of 2-10% CBD Hemp will be processed by the Hemp Gobbler per day.
  • The processing continues to a THC-free distillate state receiving 2,600 kilograms per month and sold for a conservative $1,000 per kilogram, starting August 2020. 
  • The remaining portion of by-products create an income stream from selling THC-free distillate of Cannabinol (CBN) and Cannabigerol (CBG) to pharmaceutical companies @ an averaged $5,000 per kg (not the market price of $20,000+ CBN per/kg).

Plans call for unit process development of other product streams to commence in early 2020 and to be market-ready before the end of 2020. Our goal is to have multiple Hemp Gobbler units across the nation.

The intersection of modern industrial machines and the emerging market of Industrial Hemp is manifested in the financial projections noted below.

Market Overview

Background: 


Only once in a lifetime does a brand-new market appear.  The Cannabis and Hemp movements were borne out of pure common sense, advocacy, the utility of the feedstock, political pressures, tax revenues, and tired economic pressures. The Cannabis plant has seemingly burst onto the international stage after the United States federal government got a patent (#6,630,507) on Cannabis as a medicine. The molecule sets that can be created by this useful plant are very numerous. The immediate need is for funding. Vertical industrial services and products that surround Cannabinoid exploitation, grain and fiber and the myriad products they create, are the trillion-dollar play.

Cannabis and Hemp crops have been continuously bred and farmed for thousands of years because of their utility.  There are about 2,000 varieties of Cannabis plants and they segment themselves very cleanly into three categories - THC-rich, medical preparations, and Industrial Hemp, depending on the combination and concentration of Cannabinoids:

  • THC-rich varieties (over 0.3% legally) are called Adult Use, or Recreational. Many people believe that the medical preparations that have some ratio of THC present are the most effective. This Hemp Gobbler has nothing whatsoever to do with working with THC.
  • Cannabidiol, or CBD, has been identified as one of the Cannabinoids that has medical value for the Human body.  Overwhelming official and anecdotal evidence has proven that many Cannabinoids, and especially Cannabidiol, has a positive effect on people and animals. Each state, town, community, manufacturer, store, processor, farmer, genetics company, consumer and entrepreneur must examine exactly what that product, plant, field, greenhouse, is producing and testing at, when it comes to the cannabinoids.

Industrial Hemp is called that because farmers, processors and manufacturers take the non-THC plant down to its molecular level and sell it to industry.  Why would that be done, you ask? Because it is a very useful group of sets of molecules. Generally, you have flowers, seeds and stalk which has two parts the fiber bark called bast, and the woody inner part called hurd.  The seeds are highly nutritious and have a nutty flavor. The fiber part of the stalks have been used for millennia for ropes and textiles, and the hurd has been used for construction and building materials for thousands of years.  Modern uses include the intermediate materials for air and water filters, and composite materials for a myriad of high-tech products.

The liquid output from the Hemp Gobbler will be tested by independent laboratories prior to sale. Production will concentrate on not only Cannabidiol (CBD) but also other Cannabinoids such as Cannabigerol (CBG) and Cannabinol (CBN) which provide strong profit margins. These Cannabinoids are used in medical research, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries and are in high demand. 

According to the Brightfield Group, U.S. CBD product sales are expected to increase from around a pedestrian $600 million in 2018 to $23.7 billion by 2023. For those of you keeping score at home, this is, indeed, a compound annual growth rate of more than 100% per year over a five-year stretch. This makes CBD a much faster-growing niche than Cannabis as a whole. https://www.fool.com/investing/2019/12/16/4-things-to-know-about-the-fdas-cbd-guidance.aspx
