With more than six generations of commercial farming knowledge, the Yakima Chief Hemp growers cultivate their hemp with the same quality best practices and consistency as their hops, due in part to the similarities between hops and hemp plants. Operating for more than 20 years, the hemp is processed using YCH’s extract facility under the same internationally-recognized quality standards as their hop products.
Using its patent-pending technology, SōRSE Technology has converted the distillate into a water-soluble 3 percent emulsion for seamless integration into functional beverages for the growing Beyond Beer sector.
“On behalf of Yakima Chief Hemp, we are thrilled to be working alongside SōRSE to supply brewers with even more solutions for creating new and exciting beer styles,” said Yakima Chief Sales & Marketing Officer Bryan Pierce. “We know the beer industry thrives on innovation, and it is our goal to continue providing brewers with quality ingredients that allow them to continue expressing their creativity and talent. We look forward to building on this partnership with SōRSE as they work to provide the brewing community with leading Water-Soluble CBD distillate.”
Yakima Chief Hemp’s Water-Soluble CBD Distillate is classified as broad-spectrum and contains an array of minor cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils, which contributes to the product’s flavor profile. The new product offering allows brewers to expand their product line with CBD-enhanced beverages utilizing a one-step, “drop and go” solution directly into the brewing process.
The CBD solution offers accurate dosing, a refreshing and enjoyable taste — and it’s available at scale. Water-Soluble CBD Distillate is available for product evaluation and purchase through Yakima Chief Hemp.
“SōRSE is excited to partner with Yakima Chief Hemp, a clear leader in providing quality ingredients for the craft beer industry, and introduce a superior Water-Soluble CBD distillate to brewers,” said Lee-Ann Loser, SōRSE VP of brewery product lines. “As the Beyond Beer category grows and hemp continues to gain interest, SōRSE and Yakima Chief Hemp are now able to bring hemp from their fields to brewers in a format that makes building out a beverage portfolio quick and easy. This product release marks the beginning of a greater journey for SōRSE working with brewers and a sneak peek of what we have to offer the beer industry.”
