Hydrodynamic Cannabis Extraction

Last updated: September 6, 2022

What Does Hydrodynamic Cannabis Extraction Mean?

Hydrodynamic cannabis extraction uses a combination of pressure, hydrocavitation and heat to process whole cannabis plants which have been harvested freshly. This method extracts full spectrum terpenes, cannabinoids, and terpenes.

Compounds that are volatiles or unstable remain intact because it processes fresh material and the way it is processed.


Maximum Yield Explains Hydrodynamic Cannabis Extraction

Step one involves freezing to retain aroma, preserve biomolecules and increase bioavailability. In step two, the plant material, using ultrasonication and hydrodynamic forces, is converted in nanoemulsions. The cell walls of the plant are broken, and this transmutes them into the aqueous phase. Step three involves centrifugal separation methods to separate the molecules. In step four, a cold extraction process is used to isolate cannabinoids.

After this step, the active particles are in the solvent phase. Step five involves using low temperatures and a short combination path to keep the extracted elements intact. Residual solvents are removed in step 6.
