Phasex Corporation, dba PHCO2, has been granted its 2021 processor license through the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR), which gives hemp product manufacturers a new source to extract and remediate hemp biomass to compliant to ultra-low (non-detectable, in most cases) THC levels for Commonwealth of Massachusetts-grown hemp.
