Extraction Methods for CBD vs. THC
You may already be aware that CBD and THC ultimately have the same origin, but for the purposes of your business, it may also be important to understand how to process and extract each one. Each process is distinct and requires unique preparations. As with many aspects related to running a company in the cannabis and hemp industry, perfecting extraction methods is largely a matter of planning and understanding. Just as you may make sure to secure a CBD business insurance policy to protect your company ahead of time, it’s important to research these extraction methods now so you can be prepared to process high-quality products. Here’s what your business needs to know about these different extraction methods.
Comply With Safety Regulations and Stay Protected With the Right Insurance
Whether you want to extract THC or CBD, it’s imperative that you ensure full compliance with relevant safety regulations each step of the way. The extraction process does come with several inherent risks related to flammable materials, operating the equipment involved and more. You may want to consider protecting your business preemptively with CBD business insurance.
Carefully Consider Calibrating the Three Most Important Parameters
The best CBD extraction methods are typically reliant on getting a few different parameters just right. For quick reference, these include the amount of pressure applied during the extraction phase, the temperature of your solvent, and how much time that solvent has to directly interact with the product. Any tweaks made to any of these three parameters can throw the process off and ultimately have an effect on the final product, so make sure you calculate exactly how much time is needed, what temperature you should set and the amount of pressure to be applied, as well as techniques for applying it.
Make Sure You’ve Prepared With the Proper Machinery
It’s worth mentioning that you’ll need proper equipment in order to have a successful extraction process. Different cannabis extraction methods hinge on different types of machinery, so you may want to identify which piece of equipment you’ll need to move forward. These can include, for instance:
- Distillation equipment like a short path apparatus for CBD extraction
- A centrifuge for CBD extraction, and potentially other ethanol-based machinery
- Filters and vacuum drying ovens for processing THC
Whether you’ve already secured equipment for processing and simply want to learn more about the extraction process or you’re new to running your business and need a deeper understanding of CBD versus THC extraction methods, knowing how the processes work and where they differ is essential to a successful outcome. With this easy guide to refer back to, you can fully grasp the important distinctions between the two and prepare your company for processing quality products.
