What Is Extraction Equipment Used For?
This type of equipment is used for the development and purification of cannabis oil. This is a very potent and concentrated oleoresin that contains many of the terpenes and resins that are psychoactive in the plant. In order to acquire this oil, there must be a large quantity of cannabis which is combined with a specific solvent (The type will vary).
The solvent will then separate the plant matter from desired compounds like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC/THCa), cannabidiol (CBD), and other cannabinoids and terpenes that are found within the flower. In some states, the development of CBD based products is another highly sought after industry due to THC prohibition. CBD is another compound found in the plant with many medicinal benefits that range from anxiety relief to general well-being.
More About Cannabis Oil
This sort of substance has been around for around 50 years since the original technique was first invented. In recent years, it has been growing immensely in efficiency and quality tremendously. Initially, it may have had only 15% THC concentrations due to the difficulty of creating a stable process to extract the compounds. However, with the technological advancements of this modern era, THC content has grown to remarkable levels.
In the last 40 years, the THC content has risen from 40% to 90% in cannabis oils. Their effects are also enhanced as a result of this. As a result, their popularity has skyrocketed and there is now a very stable industry supporting oil production. With higher rates of concentration and purity, these medicinal substances can be used at great effect to treat a number of illnesses, mental disorders, and day to day stresses.
What’s Better, Ethanol or CO2 Extraction?
There are many different types of extraction equipment that you can use to get cannabis oil. The variance in the equipment is based on two main factors. Quantity and Solvents. If you use a certain type of solvent, there must be specific machinery that corresponds to that substance as they require different routes to extraction.
These will regard the use of either Ethanol or CO2. As for size, you can opt for either large-scale or small business scale or even home scale. Our product line will feature options for the largest and mid-grade commercial quantities of raw hemp or cannabis. That will range from 5lbs-50lbs and 250lbs-10,000lbs of marijuana. This amount volume is ready for efficient processing in the system throughout the business day.
CO2 Extraction Equipment
Whenever you utilize Carbon dioxide, there will be different equipment used. This is because using CO2 will force you to turn the gas into a supercritical fluid via high pressure. The benefit of Carbon Dioxide is that it’s a simple but strong compound and will not leave traces behind. This is why a CO2 extraction method is a popular option for food, soft drinks, and even in the removal of caffeine from coffee. However, it is also a reason why it is going to be an expensive purchase as well.
Nevertheless, this is a great method because it ensures some of the highest levels of purity in cannabis oil. The process allows you to extract the proper substances without damage or the presence of toxic materials. CO2 extraction works by pushing the compound through the raw cannabis content at incredibly pressurized levels. This results in a seamless separation of particles in cannabis. After the CO2 has dissolved, the residual substance is a pure and potent amount of cannabis oil.
Ethanol Extraction Equipment
Our company will be offering Ethanol extraction equipment instead of CO2, though. This is due to the immense commercial value that Ethanol provides over CO2. Through the extended process of distillation, the ethanol can extract a more precise array of terpenes and cannabinoids. These are the compounds that are desired and produce the medicinal effects which are highly sought after. When utilizing Ethanol, contents like waxes or lipids are able to be bypassed. This reduces the number of steps needed for purification. We will be offering tanks starting at 100L and up, and these turnkey systems will come with all of the necessary equipment needed to fulfill the extraction process.
Ethanol extraction is an inexpensive alternative to supercritical CO2 extraction, and it can greatly benefit your company. Your volume of production will increase, and the cost of equipment for production will be reduced. You can find our products and services on our extraction systems page, which we have linked below. If you have any questions or would like to inquire about custom sizing, you can contact our customer service and a representative will be happy to assist you further.
Local Texas Laws And Federal Regulations
There are many states that currently allow the research, development, sale, and consumption of Cannabis oil but there are some that don’t. While many states have access to the research, they may be unable to directly make their own oil due to the state regulations. Some do not allow access whatsoever and prohibits cannabis use or research.
In Texas, the location of our headquarters, there are criminal aspects and legal aspects for commercial cannabis use. You are unable to grow or distribute cannabis with high THC content (the substance that creates the intoxicating effects), but you can use CBD, which is a non-psychoactive supplement that is naturally abundant in Cannabis.
As a result, Cedarstone Industry is able to lawfully sell the contents for the explicit purpose of manufacturing CBD based products. This compound is legally available to research and develop products and services around whether for can commercial, scientific, or medicinal purposes.
We are capable of selling and crafting extraction equipment for all parties located in legal regions of the United States. If you want to procure one of our machines and fall under the proper regulations and state codes, then please give us a call! We’ll be happy to work with you on building your very own extraction equipment. The end results will certainly be a highlight.
