Fractionation, Concentration & Downstram Processes

Stage 7. Fractionation and concentration of CBD from the cannabinoid-enriched material. There are a number of processes that could be applied to the cannabinoid-enriched material to isolate a CBD-enriched product. These include Supercritical Fluid (CO2) Extraction (SFE), Centrifugal Partition Chromatography (CPC), Molecular Distillation, Crystallization, etc. Ultimately, we are seeking to produce an purified extract that […]
