CO2 Extracted Cannabis Oil
A method used by the finest companies in the world, CO2 extraction or Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE,) is known for being the most effective way to extract beneficial essences from plant matter. This method is not only used for cannabis concentrates, but is also used to create pure essential oils and to strip out or separate different elements of botanicals. Popular products manufactured using this method are: herbal essential oils, hops for beer, high value pharmaceutical precursors and decaffeinated coffee.
Supercritical CO2’s high diffusion rates allow it to penetrate solids faster than a liquid solvent. The benefit of using Carbon Dioxide as an extraction solvent is its place in nature. Carbon Dioxide is a natural product that leaves behind no residues. CO2’s purity is its biggest advantage over all other solvents used for plant extraction. Currently, a popular extraction solvent is butane that can potentially leave heavy metals behind in the finished product.
The amber oil produced by the CO2 extraction can be vaporized in a variety of ways, one of the most popular being portable vaporizer pens. They use disposable cartridges containing CO2 oil and a medical grade solvent called polypropylene glycol which gives the oil its liquid consistency.
