The HurdMaster MD1000 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.

• The input is manual, so it means that the output is divided into roughly 1/1 shivs/fibre.
• Produces shivs 5-30mm long for Hempcrete, animal bedding and plant bedding.
• We are developing separation machinery to divide the shivs (which can be separated in 3 parts such as fine dust – very good to add for lime plastering).
