Problem

Farmers worldwide are struggling to grow enough industrial hemp needed to produce CBD. An even greater demand exists for CBD extraction companies, which cannot yet meet the demands of the farmers. The price of CBD oil can cost upwards of $50 to $100 for a small-sized vial (typically one fluid ounce), this is due to a limited supply as retailers race to meet the demands of the population.

Our mission

Erba Cultivation was founded on the belief that quality CBD products should be accessible to those who need them most. Our company proudly stands by the potential of hemp products and will continue to follow our mission through community education and assistance programs, providing discounts to veterans, low-income households, and anyone on long-term disability.

What is Tokenization?

Tokenization is the process of representing ownership of real-world assets digitally on a blockchain. First popularized by bitcoin, a blockchain is a decentralized digital database overseen and maintained by the masses, rather than relying on a single entity.

Governance & Rewards

While most blockchains today are used as currencies, we use them to represent much more. The (ERB) Erba Cultivation token gives access to the Erba Platform, granting voting power within the network. Furthermore, 45% of the company's profits will be distributed back to token holders via the buyback-and-burn program and the remaining 55% towards business expansion.

Transparent

Using the blockchain as a central source of truth, every token holder shares the same rights and rewards. We will provide the highest level of transparency of the project at all levels. This includes making source code public on Github, publishing frequent updates and providing a budget for use of proceeds.

YOU BUY TOKENS

All proceeds raised during the Initial Coin Offering will be invested into Erba Cultivation to purchase land, seeds and machinery. Investors who participate will receive (ERB) tokens representing voting power and future Buybacks.

Erba Cultivation / INDUSTRIAL HEMP FARM

Once thousands of hemp plants have been harvested, the raw materials are processed through our CBD extraction facility or sold to manufacturers and distributors.

Token Buyback and Burn program

When Erba Cultivation sells industrial hemp or CBD extracts, the revenue generated is distributed back to token holders via the Buyback and Burn program. Technically speaking, the company will routinely buy ERB tokens and destroy them in an irreversible smart contract, thus increasing the price of the remanding tokens. This method sets best practices for the new economy and serves in the best interests of token holders.

CUP-30 Extractor
by Delta Separations

The Most Efficient, Safe and Eco-Friendly Methods of CBD Extraction

Erba Cultivation has partnered with Delta Separations to utilize their patented CBD extraction equipment. Delta Separations is a leader in cutting-edge extraction methods, modernizing the use of ethanol—as opposed to CO2 or butane—to harvest CBD from hemp. The CUP-30 is the company’s flagship extraction system with the capacity to process over 1800 pounds of plant material every 24 hours. This partnership will provide us with installation, training, and customer service for Delta’s core product line, including the Centrifuge Utility Platform (CUP-30), Falling Film Evaporators (FFE-60), and the Rolled Film Distillation (RFD-27)

PURITY

The CUP-30 extraction system combines closed-loop alcohol extraction with a mechanical centrifugation, ensuring high purity extractions with 98% target compound removal. Our hemp is 100% grown and produced in the USA. Finished extracts are also tested for Potency, Pesticides, Residual Solvents, Heavy Metals, Microbials, and Glyphosate to ensure product efficacy and purity.

SUSTAINABILITY

The CUP-30 is built to run consistently for large capacity commercial projects, extracting about 1,800 lbs of hemp biomass every 24 hours. Precise engineering combined with a fully automated operation allows the CUP-30 to deliver outstanding performance and durability even when used at maximum capacity on a daily basis.

SCALABILITY

If necessary, we can seamlessly expand our operation by combining additional extraction systems. The extraction procedure generates no chemical waste; leftover ethanol can be filtered and reused, reducing environmental impact and lower operational costs.

SAFETY

Ethanol is a safe and efficient solvent used to extract both CBD-rich and THC-rich plant material. The FDA classifies ethanol as a safe Class 3 solvent and is already used in many common foods and medicines. The closed system process avoids the use of high pressure or exposed parts, further ensuring safety.

Distribution

Erba Cultivation will launch its first crowdsale of (ERB) tokens internationally via an Initial Exchange Offering (IEO). Of the total 1 Billion token supply, 70% or (600 million)tokens will be sold through a partnered exchange.

The team has locked 20% or (200 million) ERB tokens into a 3-year vesting smart contract to be distributed overtime to early team members and advisors. This ensures Erba Cultivation becomes a stable, self perpetuating business and provides ongoing and consistent demand for ERB tokens.

The remaining 10% or (100 million) ERB tokens have been locked into the Erba Treasury smart contract. The purpose of locking up these tokens is to effectively raise funds for the second phase of our operations at a later date, without ever creating new tokens.

What is the Erba Cultivation Treasury?

Along with growing hemp for the lucrative CBD oil it produces, Erba Cultivation will give back to the Earth by producing hemp for fiber and seed. Our long term vision is to make sure hemp-based products are available at a competitive price over synthetic and environmentally damaging materials, thus contributing in a small way to reversing the ecological crisis.

Hemp as a Competitive Crop

“Buildings are made of concrete and steel, both of which produce a lot of emissions when they’re being made,” says Bill Gates. Significant innovation in construction is one of five areas that Gates believes will avoid what he calls a “climate disaster.”

Hemp-Based Timber

According to the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, one acre of hemp can produce 4 times more paper than one acre of trees. Hemp could potentially replace anything that is made from timber, resulting in lighter and stronger wood products.

Hemp-Based Concrete

Cement is the second most-consumed resource in the world. As a result, the industry generates approximately 8 percent of global CO2 emissions. Hempcrete is a natural material made using hemp fibers and lime that can replace concrete, drywall, and insulation.

Hemp-Based Steel

The steel industry generates between 7% to 9% of global CO2 emissions. Hemp can be used to produce a steel alternative that can hold twice the weight as steel before it cracks and breaks. Additionally, Hemp can bend and mend almost six times better than steel.

Hemp-Based Plastic

Today’s plastics are derived from petroleum-based cellulose, yet these plastics are toxic and take between 500 and 1,000 years to decompose in a landfill. Hemp-based plastics offer the same capabilities of synthetic Plastic yet are non-toxic and biodegradable.

The Erba Platform

The Erba platform is a web and mobile application, utilizing both off chain governance models and on-chain protocols. Token holders can create and vote on proposals concerning technical upgrades, governance decisions and even new products. We leverage the unique attributes of blockchain technology to design the next generation of voting systems for governments and organizations. To learn more about our governance structure (see page 17).

Is hemp cultivation legal in the united states?

Hemp was legalized on a federal level when Congress passed the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018. One of the significant components of this legislation was to immediately remove hemp – defined as cannabis below 0.3% THC – from the Controlled Substances Act and into the Department of Agriculture.

CBD or Cannabidiol is a naturally occurring chemical produced exclusively in the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. It’s one of many powerful cannabinoids found in hemp and is known for providing relief for chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, depression and many other conditions. But unlike THC, CBD does not make a person feel intoxicated.

Industrial Hemp refers to a variation of the cannabis plant, which only contains 0.3 percent or less THC, the chemical compound that causes psychoactive effects. While Industrial hemp produces little or no THC, it does contain CBD. New genetic mapping of the cannabis plant shows that humans are closely related, sharing over 40% of our DNA with the plant. Studies have revealed that cannabis has evolved with us over thousands of years in a process called co-evolution. Industrial Hemp may have been used for our first rope, fabric, paper, and one of our first medicines. Today there are an estimated 35,000 products derived from hemp spanning nine major markets, including medicine, textiles, personal care, food/nutrition/beverages, construction, personal care, automotive, and furniture.

While they both belong to the Cannabis family, they are distinctly different. Industrial hemp has extremely low levels of THC, the ingredient which gives marijuana its buzz. The legal term for hemp is a strain of cannabis that does not contain more than 0.3% THC. Unlike the more famous molecule, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), hemp contains mostly CBD, which is not psychoactive.
