TN-141 – Cannabis Extraction by Supercritical Carbon Dioxide – Dewatering

All Cannabis feedstock contains water, even that which is properly dried and cured. Removing this water from the extract after processing raises the cannabinoid concentration of the extract, prevents it from spattering when consumed directly though vaping or in a rig, presents a cleaner taste to the consumer, and enables a more attractive appearance.

CO2 processing creates extract that will be laden with dry ice.  Depending on the equipment and processing conditions the extract will need to be de-gassed and/or heated prior to dewatering.
