With the cannabis oil market projected to quadruple in the U.S. and Canada, cannabis oil, the oil extracted from the cannabis plant, is on a fast track for growth! Today, the biggest challenge for manufacturers is to meet the ever-increasing consumer demand for a high-quality, compound-rich oil with a clear, golden character that is free of chlorophyll. To produce cannabis oil, the compounds must first be extracted from the plant. There are several ways to extract the oil, however, the two most common methods are CO2 extraction and ethanol extraction. Following extraction is the challenging process of filtration to remove the undesirable wax that causes haze and the green color from the chlorophyll in the sativa plant. Current filtration methods pose consequences including product loss, reduced quality and consistency, and are not scalable for increasing product demand.
