Solventless Extraction

Solventless botanical extraction techniques involve no use of solvents at any stage during processing, not to be confused with “solvent-free”. Common methods involve heated presses, ice water and agitation, sifting, and combinations of each in different stages to create very flavourful extracts.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF STEPS INVOLVED

PRE-PROCESSING

Typically trimmed or whole material; weighed and logged portions are kept in freezing storage before the process begins.

INITIAL EXTRACTION

Introduction of ice and mechanical agitation result in the removal of trichomes as they fall off of the substrate.

COLLECTION

Using a series of mesh PPM bags, the extraction process isolates the yield in stages based off the mesh PPM. Each stage represents a quality derivative and less and less quantitative yield as the PPM sizes decrease to generate higher purity.

SOLVENT RECOVERY

The best part of this process is that there are no solvents in residual to recover; simply allow the material to dry out in something similar to a cheese cloth over time to remove residual moisture and allow the product to be combustible. This material can also be integrated with edibles for those seeking non-combustible methods of consumption.

POST-PROCESSING

This would be additional and not neccessary, however, there are some SOP’s which rely on further post processing to achieve certain product derivative criteria’s
