Nowadays it is very important to understand as much as you can about botanical concentrates and extracts. Consumers should take time and consideration when deciding to purchase or create a botanical extract that is intended for human consumption. There are a lot of companies out there lately that want to cut corners to save on expenses and time, using abrasive chemical solvents that can be very dangerous for the consumer. Do you want to ingest harmful chemicals? I know I don’t.
Liquid CO2 extraction & filtration is a safe method that uses carbon dioxide to extract desirable terpenes and cannabinoids from a marijuana or hemp plant. This process removes harmful pesticides and provides an end product that is pure, good color, clarity, and retains more terpenes and cannabinoids present in the concentrate than other extraction methods.
Co2 Extraction is actually a standard extraction method for lots of herbal supplements and food industries. Decaffeinated coffee is a great example of CO2 extraction as it relies on carbon dioxide extraction equipment to remove caffeine from the coffee beans. At this point, you probably know that carbon dioxide presents itself as a gas at standard pressure and temperature. However, sub-critical or liquid CO2 extraction is actually the fluid state of the gas, taking place around 500psi and present actual liquid CO2 extraction and filtration at subzero temperatures.
Liquid Co2 extraction takes CO2 in its gaseous form and then heightens the pressure and lowers the temperature to change the gaseous CO2 into a liquid that maintains the density and flow of a liquid while at subzero temperatures, breaking off the trichomes and capturing a good percentage of the active compounds that are available within the extraction material. Furthermore, liquid CO2 can be utilized to gently filter extracted material to clear up dark crude extracts, or separate terpenes from crystallized cannabinoids.
Liquid Co2 Extraction or Sub-critical Co2 Extraction is a non flammable and non toxic botanical extraction and filtration method used to produce pure, clean oil for plant based products. Essential Extraction Corp provides ASME certified extraction equipment & components and delivers professional extraction solutions for liquid CO2 extraction & filtration.
