Co2 cbd

One of the most trusted ways to extract CBD from cannabis or hemp, the CO2 extraction method is categorized into three different types: supercritical, subcritical and mid-critical. Most professional and reputable companies use the CO2 extraction method simply because it’s the safest way to create the purest product.

In terms of CBD products, how the hemp oil is extracted drastically impacts the final result. Although all methods are attempting to do the same thing – create a highly concentrated version of cannabinoid for human use, there are definitely right ways and wrong ways to extract the oil. And, of course, even when you’ve narrowed it down to the right ways to perform the extraction (keeping in mind the purity and potency, among other things), there are still several different “right” ways being put into practice. All of this makes it extremely difficult for consumers to know which method really is best – and where they should be spending their money.

The Pros and Cons of the CO2 Extraction Method

CBD products are becoming increasingly popular, leaving many consumers wondering where to start. While it’s true there are almost more options than you can count in the world of CBD today, there’s one important factor everyone should consider before buying and consuming a hemp product: How it’s made.

Understanding How the CO2 Cannabis Extraction Method Works

Far from inexpensive, the equipment needed to extract CBD with CO2 is highly technical machinery that often is separated into three distinct chambers. As expected, each chamber has its own specialized task:

Enrichment of cannabis plants via supplemental carbon dioxide makes them grow around 30% faster, which increases yields and typically enables commercial growers to get another crop from the same floor space.

The Perma-Max™ 1400 XHP MicroBulk CO2 System and CO2 Trifecta® Gas Supply System are designed to help extractors decrease operational costs and optimize batch processes

Chart products are used to increase plant yields, maximize safe, non-toxic extraction of CBD oil, promote longer product shelf life and reduce waste during the packaging process.

Increase CBD Oil Extraction Output and Grow Yields

Pressurized carbon dioxide provides the capacity to extract dozens of desirable cannabinoids, tepenes, plant waxes and flavanoids from marijuana and hemp plants. Unlike other solvents, carbon dioxide is non-flammable and produces no toxic by-products.

Science is uncovering the benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) oil for providing pain relief and the treatment of a host of illnesses without giving users a ‘high’. Chart’s carbon dioxide products are increasingly used during the plant growing and extraction phases and our nitrogen dosers prolong product shelf-life and reduce packaging.

The Perma-Max™ HP and VHP models, bulk storage tanks, and Carbo Series systems can reliably improve botanical yields.
