Planting Carmenecta in Colorado
International Hemp announces that it is the exclusive licensee and distributor of two types of hemp fiber, Enectarol and Carmenecta, in America.
There are only a few well-suited types of hemp fiber for the southern United States. The Enecta varieties are used to the southern climate and will deliver high yields and high quality fibers. “

DENVER, CO, USA, August 10, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – International Hemp, an agricultural company engaged in the manufacture and sale of Association of Official Seed Certifying Agencies (AOSCA) certified industrial hemp seeds, announces the deal the negotiations to be the exclusive licensee and distributor of the hemp varieties Enectarol and Carmenecta in North and South America. These strains were bred by Enecta, a Dutch company specializing in phytocannabinoids, plant breeding and developing high-yielding hemp genetics. International Hemp will begin selling Enectarol and Carmenecta in 2022.
Derek Montgomery, CEO of International Hemp, commented, “This is an exciting addition to our commercial inventory of industrial hemp varieties. Very few well-suited hemp fibers are commercially available for the southern United States. These new Enecta strains are well acclimatized for southern regions where we believe they will provide both high yields and high quality fiber. ”Terry Moran, Vice President of Production and Operations for International Hemp, added:“ I am very excited to have to work with Enecta to commercialize and produce these two new Italian varieties and I will enjoy seeing seed production grow from small to large acreage for commercial scale. ”
Enectarol is a multi-purpose strain that produces high quality fiber from its stem, while its buds produce high cannabigerol (CBG) concentrations of up to 8%. CBG is currently fetching $ 1500 / pound when it is produced as crude oil. Carmenecta was bred to have a high yield of very fine fibers. It has a similar fiber quality to Carmagnola but was selected to be THC compliant.
Jacopo Paolini, CSO of Enecta, said: “We have worked on this strain to meet the needs of an industry that we have seen growing since 2012. These two strains will become very popular as the hemp growers will produce a lot more compared to the strains currently commercially available. We’re also very proud to see how well Carmenecta and Enectarol perform in the Kentucky Study Stability and Yield Tests. We believe that both varieties provide high quality fiber, while Enectarol can also be used for flower extraction due to the plant’s high concentration of CBG. “
In a recent study by the University of Kentucky, Enectarol was the number one high-yielding fiber variety. This is mainly due to the fact that Enectarol and Carmenecta were bred at 44 ° N, which is significantly further south than most of the other types of hemp fiber available on the market. Both strains have been tested and approved for AOSCA certification by state members including the Colorado Seed Growers Association and tested for THC compliance by the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
Hemp farmers in the southern states have faced challenges and raised concerns about the performance and yields of the industrial hemp strains currently available. These challenges are mainly due to the strains being bred in the northern latitudes, where factors such as varying day lengths, soil temperatures, heat, and water stress lead to premature flowering that is catastrophic to strain performance and the overall ROI for farmers. While still in the preliminary research and development stages, early data suggests that both new Italian strains will outperform current commercial strains available in the southern regions of the US. Agronomic data, trial data and yield information are made available on the International Hemp website.
In 2022, International Hemp will begin producing Enectarol and Carmenecta in commercial quantities with its domestic seed production partners. International Hemp expects to have samples of Enectarol and Carmenecta with corresponding yield data by 2023.
