CO2 extraction is an extraction method used to isolate desired chemical components of plant matter. CO2, when controlled, and placed under high pressure, becomes a “tunable solvent” allowing for the creation of multiple end products. This phase change occurs when CO2 is placed under high pressure, transforming into a supercritical liquid. This phase change creates a stable environment for the isolation of different cannabinoids, despite their varied molecular weights.
Utilizing a blend of butane and propane, i.e. “blended solvents”, can provide your light hydrocarbon extraction process with the capability to skillfully manipulate the quality and consistency of your output [...]
