We Introduce Product Of The Week

The Micro-Hemp Decorticator

The HurdMaster hemp decorticator is intended for small farming and processing operations and for CBD and marijuana producers who want to capitalize on leftover stems. The machine is designed for separating the cannabis stalk’s woody inner core (hurd, shivs, shives) from the exterior bast fibers. The resulting hurd can be used for hempcrete construction, as animal bedding and animal litter, or as plant bedding. With additional technology, the separated bast fibers can be further processed for a wide, wide variety of applications. [See the video]

More about the product


Kristaps Eglitis
, who built the first prototype of the HurdMaster Micro Decorticator in his own shop, is by training an arts & crafts metal worker. The HurdMaster was inspired in part by his research of a decorticator project started years ago by Voldemars Cirulis, a Latvian developer, in the early 2000s. Kristaps is also interested in hempcrete construction and is insulating and reconstructing a family house from the material.
