Super Critical CO2 Extraction: Full-Spectrum, Clean & Pure
- Super Critical Fluid extraction is the safest, most sustainable method and as such the superior method. Using state-of-the-art equipment PMB takes harmless Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and compresses it at upwards of 10,000 psi (300 times greater than car tire pressure) Source: Elixinol’s site.
- At these extremes CO2 becomes ‘super critical’ where it possesses the properties of both a liquid and a gas at the same time. It is also very cold so it does not harm any heat-sensitive nutrients like enzymes or vitamins.
- This super critical fluid is an exceptional non-toxic solvent. When added to this nutrient-rich hemp oil it fully liberates the entire treasure of phytonutrients hidden within.
- The CO2 is then released and recycled leaving a highly concentrated, totally pure extract that is more easily digested and assimilated.
- The whole plant super-critical Co2 extraction process used to manufacture PrimeMyBody’s hemp oil yields a clean, unaltered, consistent medical-grade oils without harmful solvents.
- While CBD is an abundant constituent, it also has CBG, CBN, CBC, CBG-A, CBC-A, and dozens of others, as well as other nutritional constituents such as terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, fatty acids, trace minerals, and proteins.
- In other words, PMB’s process yields all of the synergistic cannabinoids, terpenoids and other natural compounds of the whole original plant. To appreciate this fully, it is helpful to understand there are more than 400 phytonutrients that exist in hemp plants. These compounds work synergistically in the body in a powerful way to create an “entourage effect”. In other words, the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts.
- The final product is a Hemp Extract containing hundreds of active constituents in addition to the cannabidiol – the complete profile of cannabinoids and terpenes will be available at the product launch in mid-June.
- Some techniques for extracting Hemp use high heat and/or toxic solvents which are dangerous, unsustainable and don’t extract the full complement of nutrients from the plant. Even worse, they cannot always be fully separated from the end product which is therefore not clean or pure.
