Why We Use Co2 Processing

Tuesday Aug 13th, 2019

Super-critical Co2 processing is widely accepted as the safest method of cannabinoid extraction today, both for consumers and those doing the processing. Other methods require hemp flower to be suspended in harsh solvents such as low-grade alcohol or butane which can irritate the lungs and leave behind contaminants such as chlorophyll. Not only do these introduce potential health risks to the consumer, they are extremely volatile substances which greatly increase the likelihood of accidents in the workplace. Co2 acts as a solvent without the dangers of being one.
