Smart CannaLC Test Application

The Smart CannaLC has been used to test the quality and purity of cannabis extracts prepared using supercritical fluid extraction equipment. The need for pharmaceutical grade cannabis oil has increased as researchers continue to investigate the application of cannabis oil for the treatment of various ailments such as muscle spasms, glaucoma, nausea, mood and behavioral disorders, sleep disorders, and chronic pain. With a myriad of cannabinoids present in the marijuana plant that can be used to treat a range of ailments and conditions, the investigation into producing a more effective extraction method and purer product has just begun.

Supercritical Fluid Technologies, Inc. is a manufacturer of a wide range of supercritical fluid extraction systems for researchers who want to produce a high quality of Cannabis extraction products through the use of an efficient, green supercritical fluid carbon dioxide (scCO2) extraction process.

Supercritical Fluid Technologies, Inc does not endorse the use of our products for use in any cannabis applications that are not in compliance with federal and state regulations.
