EXTRACTION

During this process, a solid is placed in a solvent to remove soluble components. Making coffee or tea are common examples of extraction.

 

DISTILLATION

In this process, a liquid or component is isolated by selective heating, vaporization and condensation. Distilleries use this to make spirits from a mash mixture of fermented grains.

 

VACUUM DISTILLATION:

This process uses distillation under reduced pressure. Placing a liquid mixture under vacuum enables the distillation process to occur at a lower temperature. This lowers the liquid boiling point, increases the rate of distillation and reduces exposure of temperature-sensitive components (this eliminates unwanted degradation due to high heat exposure). A simple example of the difference pressure makes to the boiling point: Water at sea level boils at 212°F (100°C); in Denver, CO, it boils at 203°F (95°C) due to lower atmospheric pressure.

 

DECARBOXYLATION

Prior to extraction, plant matter is often enriched to increase THC content. Quantities of non-psychoactive Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) in the plant matter can be converted to THC by exposing it to heat. The heating causes the THCA to decarboxylate (a chemical rearrangement which expels carbon dioxide) forming THC. Similarly, heat treatment of CBD-A rich material decarboxylates forms CBD for medicinal purposes. For dry plant matter, this is typically accomplished by taking
chopped plant material and heating to 100-150°C for a sufficient time to facilitate the decarboxylation. For extracts, the decarboxylation process takes place after winterization by heating the extract oil to 100-140°C.
