Cutting Edge Cannabidiol Extraction Technologies Used by Industry Leaders
The benefits of the cannabis compound, cannabidiol (CBD), are now well-known throughout various parts of the world. Its benefits are one of the primary driving factors to the strong demand for products derived from the miracle compound. Behind the demand are industry leaders who are doing their best to provide the public with the purest CBD products on the market, but getting the compound is an arduous process.
Getting CBD is not as easy as serving the masses with hemp and marijuana. There are two main compounds in cannabis compounds and those are CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). While CBD provides the health benefits many are clamoring for, THC is responsible for the psychoactive effects of hemp and marijuana. Industry leaders do their best to make sure that there are no traces of THC in their oils or that the THC amount is kept at the recommended level. In doing so, they are able to provide products that carry only the medicinal benefits of hemp plants.
Pure and high-quality oils are a must for the top distributors in the industry. Ensuring the purest extracts of CBD provides consumers potent products that have all the benefits of the compound. Here are some of the ways the top CBD leaders are extracting the compound.
While most CBD leaders would focus their products on human consumption, Petabis would like to do otherwise and create products that could benefit animals like cats and dogs. Even if their products are mostly for animals, Petabis ensures that the CBD they produce is of top-quality through their patented water vapor extraction process.
Petabis describes it as a “revolutionary thermal extraction process.” The company uses heated air and condensation to vaporize THC and to carefully extract cannabidiol. What’s left of the plant is a very fine extract that contains no trace of the psychoactive compound.
NCM Biotech centers its functions on creating medicine using naturopathic treatments, which include the production of high-quality CBD products. To further its endeavors, the company has entered into a deal with Greenbelt Resources Corp. (OTCMKTS:GRCO) to use the latter’s bioethanol product. It is in line with NCM Biotech’s efforts to find new sustainable and effective ways of extracting CBD. NCM views Greenbelt’s renewable bioethanol as ”better than organic” with a much lower carbon footprint.
Greenbelt Resources is a biotech company that focuses on producing bioethanol and other bioproducts from food waste through its proprietary ECOsystem. The company’s technology has been in use and tested by many businesses in California since 2010. Its propriety technique has produced high-quality bioethanol that has apparently met the standards of NCM Biotech for use in its CBD extraction process.
Supercritical CO2 extraction
As the wholly-owned subsidiary of CBD giant, PotNetwork Holding, Inc. (OTCMKTS:POTN), Diamond CBD is able to provide its huge customer-base with the finest extracts of the miracle compound through their meticulous process called supercritical CO2 extraction.
The supercritical CO2 extraction process, as described by Diamond CBD, is the most gentle approach to getting high-quality CBD. Through this technique, the naturally occurring beneficial molecules of the hemp plant are retained.
This method of extraction not only provides Diamond CBD with the purest extracts of the compound, it also produces clean and quality oils that do not need any post-processing methods. Other companies have to use chemicals to create safe and consumable CBD oil, but with supercritical CO2 extraction, Diamond CBD’s oils come from their laboratory and go into their products as is.
Although Diamond CBD doesn’t have any post-processing methods for their extracts, they still quality-check their output to guarantee that their customers get only the finest and purest oils extracted from hemp. Each batch of the extracts undergoes lab testing to ensure the purity and consistency of the products.
These three industry leaders are meeting the heavy demand for CBD using sustainable and efficient processes. For now, these extraction methods are already top-notch and time-tested. However, as these companies gain more support, we can expect their techniques to further develop.
