Utrasonic topic: "Ultrasonic cannabis extraction"
Cannabis is a genus of flowering plants in the family Cannabaceae. There a three species of cannabis, namely Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, Cannabis ruderalis. Cannabis sativa is the most well-known and widely distributed species.
When it comes to cannabis and cannabinoids, which are the bioactive compounds of cannabis, it must be distinguished between hemp and marijuana. The hemp plant has less than 0.3% of the psychoactive compound THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the substance that makes you “high”), whilst marijuana is defined as Cannabis sativa plant with a THC content greater than 0.3%. Hemp is grown for production of CBD (cannabidiol) and industrial fibre; marijuana is used for its THC content, which is administered either for medicinal or recreational purpose.
To isolate the bioactive compounds, known as cannabinoids, from the cannabis plant, a powerful and reliable extraction method is required. Ultrasonic extraction excels conventional extraction techniques such as supercritical CO2 extraction in extract yield, extraction speed, operational safety and user-friendliness. Hielscher Ultrasonics is your experienced partner for sophisticated cannabis extraction at any scale. Covering the whole range from compact, hand-held ultrasonicators up to full-commercial inline extraction systems, Hielscher will offer you the most suitable ultrasonic processor for your extraction process and target.
