Extraction of active substances

Producing fine oil

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a drug-free hemp product which does not produce a psychoactive effect, unlike other products derived from this raw material. But it is said to ease cramps, inhibit inflammation, reduce anxiety and relieve nausea. The best way to obtain fine CBD oil is through the process of supercritical extraction with the aid of supercritical carbon dioxide. In this state, carbon dioxide is highly compressed and possesses an enormous dissolving capacity for organic substances. Only relatively small amounts of CBD are contained in the resin of the legal hemp plant, and this process allows it to be extracted from the hemp oil in a particularly efficient and non-destructive way.
