The Science Behind Cannabis Extraction Methods: A Deep Dive

Exploring Cannabis Extraction Techniques

At Nuna Harvest Dispensary, located in Mount Vernon, NY, we’re passionate about providing our customers with high-quality cannabis products. As we prepare for our grand opening, we’d like to share some insights into the fascinating world of cannabis extraction methods.

Common Extraction Techniques

Cannabis extraction is a crucial process in creating various products, from oils to edibles. Here are some of the most popular methods:

1. CO2 Extraction: This method uses pressurized carbon dioxide to pull desired compounds from the plant material.

2. Ethanol Extraction: A solvent-based technique that uses high-grade grain alcohol to extract cannabinoids and terpenes.

3. Hydrocarbon Extraction: Utilizes butane or propane to strip cannabinoids from plant matter.

The Science Behind CO2 Extraction

CO2 extraction is widely considered one of the safest and most efficient methods. Here’s how it works:

1. Pressurization: CO2 is pressurized in a chamber until it reaches a supercritical state.
2. Extraction: The supercritical CO2 passes through cannabis plant material, dissolving the desired compounds.
3. Separation: The CO2-cannabinoid mixture is pumped into a separator where the CO2 evaporates, leaving behind the extracted compounds.

This method allows for precise control over temperature and pressure, resulting in a pure, high-quality extract.

Coming Soon to Nuna Harvest

As we prepare to open our doors at Nuna Harvest Dispensary, we’re excited to offer a range of products created using these advanced extraction methods. Our team is committed to providing Mount Vernon with top-tier cannabis products that showcase the best of what modern extraction technology has to offer.
