Producing pure and safe CBD-oil is the goal of every quality-conscious manufacturer of cannabis products. Raw hemp extracts contain high concentrations of cannabinoids, and will also contain contaminants and impurities for example plant particles, chlorophyll and debris as well as unwanted oils and waxes. Therefore certain contaminants should be removed:
• bitter taste and highly unstable
• will cause degradation of cannabinoids
• very sticky components
• removal leads to smoother texture and consistency
Filtration and purification steps of CBD- oil
In order to ensure product quality and safety for CBD-oil products, filtration is essential. The following chart shows a typical filtration process. Variations might be considered depending on extraction method and type of product as well as desired quality.
Filter Presses and CBD Oil Extraction from Hemp Plants
No doubt you have heard about CBD Oil. CBD stands for Cannabidiol and is an extract of the hemp plant which does not contain the “buzz”-inducing “high” associated with THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol. THC is the main psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis. CBD is not psychoactive, unlike THC.
CBD Oil is typically used for health-related and wellness-related reasons, rather than for recreational purposes. CBD Oil is an increasingly popular natural remedy used for conditions such as for pain relief, reduction in anxiety and depression, fibromyalgia, arthritis, diabetes, treating side effects of cancer treatments, and a variety of other conditions. According to Forbes, The Hemp Business Journal estimated that the CBD market will grow to a $2.1 billion market in consumer sales by 2020. CBD Oil is also being marketed for man’s best friend, canines.
