Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), once the darling of the industry, seems now to be playing second fiddle to its counterpart, cannabidiol (CBD). THC-free products are now all the rage in the wellness and pharmaceutical space due to their powerful therapeutic effects without the intoxicating experience.
Cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) is a little-known cannabinoid with major therapeutic potential. In preliminary studies, CBDA has shown to treat inflammation, anxiety, seizures, and even certain types of cancer. CBDA is now seen as the next frontier in cannabinoid-based therapy.
The battle of the titans: ethanol extraction vs. BHO extraction vs. CO2 extraction. Which one produces the best cannabis oil? Which one is the best and most cost-effective method for cannabis producers? In short, it depends.
Butane hash oil (BHO) of the highest order is vacuum purged for better taste and aroma. As part of an optimized post-processing workflow, a vacuum purge removes all of the excess solvents, in this case, butane and/or propane, to deliver an oil worthy of medicinal or recreational use.
Cannabis distillates are the ultra-refined extracts from the cannabis plant found in vape cartridges, edibles, and topical products worldwide. Distillates contain a single cannabinoid in pure and potent oil. Their amber-colored and translucent appearance does not start off that way. A series of extraction and purification processes convert the raw cannabis and hemp plant material into the marijuana distillate found in a significant amount of cannabinoid-based products.
Hemp harvests are finally seeing their time in the sun. From its inner hurd to its CBD-rich flowers, hemp serves several industrial and therapeutic purposes. Hemp's legalization has particularly allowed the market to catch up with demand.
Hydrocarbons are the ultimate solvent in the extract market for creating a high-quality concentrate product. Strong enough to pull massive amounts of cannabinoids from any quality cannabis and hemp biomass and gentle enough to keep the sensitive terpenes intact in the end product.
Cannabis oil might as well be called cannabis gold due to its high demand and value across the world. In the United States, the world's largest cannabis market, marijuana and hemp production has been fueled by the vast amounts of medical and adult-use marijuana products available. Think marijuana extracts, topicals, edibles, and other infused creations.
Maintaining a competitive edge in the extraction segment means staying ahead of the fast-expanding cannabis industry. As a pure-play cannabis extractor, you’re subject to unique scaling challenges that cultivators and retailers don’t face. Throughout every step of the supply chain, large scale processing companies are met with risky business decisions that could slow down cannabis production and compromise consumer trust.
Hemp and cannabis have kickstarted a green revolution where a single plant can provide many sustainable uses. From the live resin vape cartridge to the soothing cannabis topical you use to relieve minor aches and pains, the product’s life cycle begins on the farm. After months of careful plant care, the crop is ready to be smoked, vaped, or infused.
