We take pride in joining the new and budding industry of cannabis extract manufacturing with our commercial extraction system. As a leading stainless-steel manufacturer for over twenty years, we can deliver the best in quality machinery. Cedar Stone Industry has faithfully served Coca-Cola, Bluebell, Anheuser-Busch, GEA, Tetra Pak, Heineken, and GE Pharmaceutic, and many others. We hope to soon work with cannabis manufacturers, as well, with our new products.
Seeing someone carrying a vape pen filled with CBD oil, THC, hemp, or hash oil, or some cannabis extract is now a commonplace occurrence. CBD or cannabidiol is one of the 113 identified possible cannabinoids found in Cannabis Sativa. However, it makes up 40% of cannabis’ active ingredients. It is important to note that THC, the psychoactive component, makes up most of the rest. Through extraction, we separate THC and CBD, meaning we can use CBD oil without the psychotropic effects of THC affecting us.
Marijuana Extract Uses
Research on the effectiveness and possible uses of cannabis extracts has only begun as of very recently. In fact, trials only started as of 2019. And even now, some prescriptions have come out. There is evidence that we will find many more as well. Before the clinical trials launched, the people had already acclaimed their efficacy.
A prescription medication that uses CBD, Epidolex, was approved by the FDA. It treats certain forms of epilepsy that resist treatment. Doctors prescribe it Epidolex for Dravet Syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome. Another prescription, a nasal spray Sativex, was developed to help with the symptoms of multiple sclerosis.
People continue to use CBD and other cannabis extracts to treat different ailments, while research is still ongoing. Many with bipolar use CBD to control manic episodes. We are also still looking into what improvements it can make on those with Crohn’s disease, dystonia, fragile X syndrome, GVHD, insomnia, social anxiety, and those experiencing withdrawal from heroin, morphine, opiates, and nicotine.
Many athletes are using cannabis extracts to improve their game. Plus, The World Anti-Doping Agency took CBD off its banned substances list in 2018. The NHL Alumni Association also funds research to see if it can help long-suffering athletes from head injuries. Celebrity professional athletes have even done promotions for companies that are developing CBD specific to sports.
For these reasons, CBD is becoming more and more common. In the future, we will certainly find many other ways cannabis extracts can help us. Cannabis extraction and cannabis oil manufacturing are promising business. It would be beneficial for businesses to take part in the growth of CBD oil now rather than getting into it later.
The Extraction Process
The cannabis extraction process has many steps to it, and every one of them needs to run smoothly. We supply the highest quality stainless steel for all steps along the way. The hardware of our system is durable, which means it will last longer than other systems.
- Centrifugal Extraction
- Solvent Recovery
Our Commercial Extraction System
Cedar Stone Industry stocks and sells the CEX Series Extraction Series. We also offer closed-loop low-pressure ethanol extraction equipment. It is the perfect commercial extraction system available for your marijuana, cannabis, and CBD oil extraction. Throughout the extraction process, the solvents remove the soluble materials from the biomass inside the extraction vessel. Then, the filtration and separation that follows, the centrifuge makes sure to recover the biomass.
The CEX Series model is a complete turnkey system and includes the following:
- Pre-chilled ethanol tanks module
- Centrifugal extraction module
- Filtration skid module
- Ethanol recovery module (falling film evaporator/wiper film evaporator)
- Vacuum skid
- NEMA 4X stainless UL listed control
- UL listed pumps and integrated piping
- Explosive proof (Class 1 Division 1), Intrinsically safe, ATEX/SGS certified control tablet
The state-of-the-art control panel has health and safety as its priority. More importantly, it is approved by the ATEX/IECEx Zone 1, SGS to UL 913C I, II, and III Division 1. Furthermore, the tablet is rugged-built and explosion-proof, safe for Zone 1, Division 1 hazardous areas.
The C1D1 remote control panel uses real-time Wi-Fi connectivity. This way, you can operate from the safe room. It also works on a Windows OS system and uses a Siemens application. Additionally, the screen is a 10.1 inch WUXGA display and has a 1920×1200 resolution. The battery allows for twelve hours of browsing with a three-and-a-half-hour charge time. Finally, the device is equipped with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space.
Our Other Extraction Equipment
During the extraction process, the ethanol solvent bidirectionally spins at high speeds, and the biomass is agitated inside the rotor barrel. Our centrifuge reactor is built with a sanitary design in mind and rated at an Ra less than or equal to .2 micrometers without any dead corner.
A more sophisticated method than the usual boiling point difference distillation, this employs a liquid-liquid separation. In safety, it rates high for purifying thermally unstable molecules with low volatility and high boiling points.
CBD and THC does not appear naturally in the Cannabis Sativa plant. Firstly, they need to be brought out from their natural precursors: Cannabidiolic Acid or CBDA. More importantly, the decarboxylation process brings out their pharmacologically active properties in the extract.
It is possible to reach a high purity level in CBD without sophisticated equipment. However, the only prerequisite is you need to have winterized and distilled the extract to a rating of eighty percent.
