Winterizing the extracted CO2 oil prepares the solution for removing any water, and filtering the waxes, fats, and lipids. Winterizing steps do include mixing and blending often done with jacketed reactors or mag drive stirrers.
After proper winterization we filter out the fats, waxes, and lipids. There are a few options for filtering and various size micron filters that can be implemented.
For edibles, tinctures, capsules, balms, and lotions it is important to decarboxylate the oil (or you can decarb the plant material prior to CO2 Extraction) to active the THC and CBD.
ROTARY EVAPORATOR Rotovaps (rotary evaporators) are used to distill off the ethanol and water, leaving the pure oil ready for end product. This final oil can be used directly into vape cartridges for vaping. Rotary evaporators come in 2-50liters, and either manual or automated units available.
There are a variety of fraction distillation technologies available for making pure oil distillates like short path distillation and wiped film distilling. Chromotography is used for separation of specific cannabanoids. There are now proven lab, pilot scale and production chromatography systems used for separation of cannabinoid very effectively. This allows you to isolate specific molecules such as CBD, CBN, CBG, CBC, CBDV, Delta 8, etc.
