Why Is CBD Important?
Every human, bird, mammal, and all vertebrates have a body system called the Endocannabinoid system. Scientists believe this system’s main function is to maintain bodily homeostasis by producing our own levels of cannabinoids. The receptors for these compounds can be found throughout the body in your organs, skin, and immune cells. Research has linked the Endocannabinoid System to appetite and digestion, chronic pain, inflammation, mood, sleep, skin and nerve function. Cannabis is the only natural source to replenish and supply the body with these compounds that are the basis for the Endocannabinoid System to exist. Liquefy provides a reliable source of full spectrum cannabis products, supplying your body with cannabinoids directly to those receptors throughout your body.
Liquefy technicians are experts at extracting the beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids from cannabis. Liquefy uses only the highest grade certified organic flower to produce our full spectrum CBD oil as the basis for our products. The cannabis extract is made using supercritical CO2 extraction technology, one of the safest and cleanest extraction methods to capture CBD. Supercritical CO2 extraction uses highly advanced technology to produce full spectrum extracts in an ultra sterile environment. Supercritical CO2 extraction isolates desired cannabinoids and terpenes in to a crude form of CBD oil. After initial extraction, the crude oil undergoes another process called “winterization.” This process filters out waxes, lipids, and the final remaining impurities in the CBD oil. Once the oil has reached this stage it is custom blended into all of our cannabis products.
What is Supercritical CO2 Extraction?
Supercritical C02 extraction is a highly advanced technology that uses liquid C02 to produce a full spectrum cannabis extract. The cannabis is dried and decarboxylated, a term used for using heat to convert CBDA into CBD. It’s then crushed into a fine powder and loaded into the stainless steel extraction chamber. Once chamber has been sealed, the chamber is blasted with super high pressure supercritical C02. When a molecule becomes supercritical, it takes on characteristics of both a gaseous and liquid state. This allows for the liquid C02 to act as a solvent and a carrier simultaneously. With pressures between 1000 and 2000 psi, the supercritical C02 penetrates the cannabis completely while extracting and carrying the desired cannabinoids into the collection chamber. During extraction operations, the temperature and pressures can be adjusted to capture specific molecules from the cannabis.
