Do I need to fractionate?
It depends. Keep in mind that most fractions are not 100% – there is always some mixing of the different fractions. In competitive systems that utilize fractional separation, a large portion of the yield is dark green due to the aggressive extraction parameters they use. In order to utilize the entire plant, the green fraction will have to be secondarily processed as well. Most customers don’t like the limited yield of “the good stuff” and just mix the 3 fractions back together and secondarily process anyway.
