About the Creation of PotDispense SuperCritical Cannabis Oil Cartridges:
Carbon dioxide (CO2) extraction is commonly used to make various food and other products – and it’s becoming increasingly popular for extracting top quality cannabis oil high in cannabidiol (CBD).
Cannabis oil – Supercritical CO2 Extraction
In fact, subcritical and supercritical CO2 extraction is rapidly becoming the preferred method of extraction in the medical cannabis and therapeutic hemp industries; particularly with larger commercial operations.
CO2 – A Safer, Cheaper, Greener Solvent
As we mentioned in our guide to cannabidiol (CBD), cannabis oil is usually extracted on a commercial scale either through the use of solvents such as hexane or butane, or through more modern supercritical/subcritical CO2 (carbon dioxide) processes.
Carbon dioxide based extraction is considered to be more environmentally friendly, considerably safer, cleaner, cheaper and less toxic than using fossil fuel based extraction – and results in a consistent product that is more palatable.
What Is Supercritical Carbon Dioxide (ScCO2)?
At standard temperatures and pressure, carbon dioxide is a gas. At 60.4 psi it’s a liquid and at -78C at standard pressure, it’s a solid (dry ice).
When heated to above 31.10C (critical temperature) and at 1,071 psi (critical pressure) or higher, it has the properties of both a gas and liquid. It becomes what’s known as a supercritical liquid.
Supercritical liquids can pass through porous solids and also dissolve materials, making them ideal as a solvent. The “tunability” of supercritical CO2 extraction enables targeting maximum outputs of cannabidiol depending on the type and quality of cannabis material being used; while keeping undesirable compounds such as chlorophyll out of the product.
