IST is a leading manufacturer of solvent distillers and purification systems for the Cannabis and Hemp industry. Our systems are widely used among major Cannabis Oil manufacturers using extraction process to separate Cannabis Oil from organic solvents. The end result is a highly concentrated, solvent-free Cannabis Oil with a purity of over 99.9%.
Cannabis by-products are part of a growing market in today’s economy. As of 2019, Canada and ten States of the U.S. have legalized recreational marijuana, and there are more to come. More and more jurisdictions around the Globe have gained interest in legalizing marijuana for economic and public health reasons.
Cannabinoid is one of the major chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant, which acts on human neurotransmitters. At least 113 different cannabinoids have been isolated from the Cannabis plant, all of which have a different impact on brain cells. The most studied cannabinoids include tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), and cannabinol (CBN). While smoking marijuana may cause serious health issues in the long term, Cannabis by-products have proven to be beneficial for certain people by reducing anxiety, reducing inflammation, relieving pain, controlling nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy, stimulating the appetite, and much more.
For these reasons, medicinal cannabis is gaining popularity among the health system’s professionals.
How to Extract Cannabis Oil?
Most cannabinoids are concentrated in a viscous resin called trichomes, which are the tiny hairs found on cannabis buds and flowers. It is possible to separate different types of cannabinoids from the plant structure by extraction with organic solvents such as ethanol, hydrocarbons, and alcohols.
The first step is to soak and stir dried cannabis material in a small quantity of organic solvent, which will quickly extract different kinds of chemicals from the plant. Then the mixture can be filtered to get rid of solids and collect only the mixture of organic solvent and cannabis oil.
These powerful organic solvents may be efficient in extracting cannabinoids and other chemical compounds from the Cannabis plant, but they are also hazardous to human health. Therefore, the next step is to separate the Cannabis Oil from organic solvents by a distillation extraction process to obtain pure cannabis oil extract.
That is where ISTpure’s line of solvent distillers comes into play! Our solvent distillers provide the best cannabis oil extraction method.
