Supercritical CO2 Extraction

Cannabis CO2 Extraction - A Basic Overview
How does the Supercritical CO2 Extraction process work? It begins with water vapor flowing through a membrane that captures the steam. As the water vapor enters the machine, it is cooled to approximately 190 degrees Fahrenheit. The water vapor then flows through a tube, which sucks out the moisture.
Once the water vapor passes through a separator, it is cooled further to approximately 75 degrees Fahrenheit. The steam produced is passed through a series of filters that trap the carbon dioxide gas. The steam that is left in the machine is condensed by the heat and pressure from the evaporator.
The condensed carbon dioxide is collected, purified, and heated to make hash oil, which is the most widely used form of cannabis. Hash oil can be used in a variety of different ways for recreational and medicinal use.
The cannabis extract, or hash, is collected from the cannabis plants, which are used as seeds or stems, during the growing cycle. Cannabis plants grow from one to five feet in height. Most products available today are made from cannabis flowers and seeds. They are usually marketed as "hash oil."
Cannabis plants and flowers have a high level of THC, the active component. When the plant is harvested, the produce known as concentrate is produced in a very concentrated form. This concentrate is then sent to the extraction process.
Extracts can be different grades, depending on how the plant was processed. There are products available that have been enhanced for potency, or are just plain pot. Different forms of cannabis, including hash, can be described as having a certain percentage of THC, as determined by various labs.
There are small-scale processors who operate by themselves. They generally have small machines, which they use in their own home. Many have a place where they keep the machines, and the machines are part of the machine shop business.
Cannabis CO2 Extraction is a growing industry that provides customers with many different products that include oils, tinctures, and edibles. If you are looking for the highest quality product at a lower price, there is a home-marijuana extract that is right for you. Take some time to learn more about the processes involved in Cannabis CO2 Extraction and see what your next product will be.
