More on Extraction
Our extraction methods employ one of two methods: hydrocarbon solvents or high-pressure CO2, resulting in the foundation for all other end products known as crude hemp oil. Extraction processes remove volatile compounds from the plant itself, while many lipids and other compounds remain. This necessitates further reﬁnement through a process called winterization, used to remove these remaining, undesirable compounds (e.g., lipids). After winterization, isolated cannabinoids must also undergo decarboxylation, by which the compounds are heated enough to activate their medicinal potential. The result is also known as Rick Simpson oil.
Regardless of the method, our crude oil is ultimately made 100% solventless through decarboxylation and distillation methods that follow.
More on Distillation
Distillation follows the extraction process and is a method of separating the components of a mixture, using selective boiling and condensation. Distillation can result in partial or complete separation of components, in some cases increasing the concentration of selected components in the mixture. The process is driven by differences in the relative volatility of the mixture’s components. Distillation is a keystone practice is modern industrial chemistry.
Cannabinoids, terpenes, and ﬂavonoids are pulled from the vegetative material of the cannabis plant together though various extraction processes, when creating a CBD distillate. We use additional refinement in the form of “fractional” or “short path distillation,” in order to distill these compounds into their purest form. The result is single compound oils that test at over 99%+ purity.
The future of cannabis derived concentrates may well be distillate formats. Distilled hemp-derived oils provide a clean and potent product, with limitless application potential, unparalleled purity, and incredible versatility.
More on Chromatography
Chromatography is a sophisticated technique, employed when separting a mixture. First, a mixture is dissolved in a fluid and carried through equipment. Then, because its various constituents travel at different speeds, the process causes them to separate. Chromatography is either preparative or analytical. The purpose of preparative chromatography separating the components of a mixture for later use and is, therefore, a form of purification. Analytical chromatography is usually performed on smaller amounts of material for the purpose of establishing the presence or measuring the relative proportions of analytes in a mixture. We leverage both in our proprietary processes, so chromatography is a cornerstone of our extraction and processing methods.
Not only is chromatography advanced, it is has also stood the test of time, with recorded use since the early 1900s. This unique branch of chemistry is dedicated to the natural separation individual molecules from the multitube of multi-compound formula found in Nature.
Our unique ability to extract and purify individual compounds from Cannabis sativa L is at the core of our results: legally compliant hemp-derived comsumer packaged goods. We offer a level of experience and expertise rooted in proven sciences that was have innovated for our purposes that sets us apart in an industry lacking rigor. We’re proud to offer customized formulations that are tailored to your needs.
We ensure that the critical attributes of taste, color, potency, and purity consistently meet quality control speciﬁcations for making phytocannabionoid-rich ﬁnished products with rigorous and frequent third party testing.
