Cannabis concentrates are the fastest growing segment in the market. There are many extraction techniques involved to create these products, some using organic solvents and other methods using pressure or even water. In commercial sized facilities, hydrocarbon, ethanol, Co2 and solventless are the most typical extraction processes utilized at scale. What’s the difference between these extraction types, and how do you determine the best cannabis extraction method for your operation?
Cannabis is the latest buzzword in the business and investing sectors. But despite this new era where cannabis is seen as a legitimate commercial playing field rather than a Wild West frontier with a dubious future, there are a number of unique challenges when it comes to marketing cannabis businesses.
Live resin extracts are unusual because the cannabis used for extraction is the fresh flower directly from the garden. The flower is frozen within 30 minutes of harvest, putting the plant into a stasis before the changes that begin during the typical drying and curing process can take place. It is then put into deep freeze storage until the extractor is ready to extract the material. As the fresh flower is frozen immediately following harvest and basic trimming, the live resin extraction process preserves the aromatic and flavor profiles of the plant at the peak of the plant’s life cycle.
