The Chemistry of Cannabis Love: Supercritical CO2 Extraction

The chemistry of cannabis love – take a closer look at how our chemists use CO2 extraction to create your meds. With CO2, what you extract is what you get and there’s no need to worry about anything in your oil except the purest medicinal compounds.

Supercritical CO2 Extraction Process

Supercritical CO2’s high diffusion rates allow it to penetrate solids faster than a liquid solvent. The benefit of using Carbon Dioxide as an extraction solvent is its place in nature. Carbon Dioxide is a natural product which leaves behind no residues. CO2’s purity is its biggest advantage over all other solvents used for plant extraction.

CO2 extraction at FLUENT

At FLUENT, we use a handcrafted, full spectrum, a proprietary method of CO2 extraction that removes the cannabis terpenes from each batch of flower. After carefully blending the full spectrum of terpenes back into the oil batch, the result is a pure, finished oil that captures the nuance of each strain, from flavor to effect.
