A Revolution In Ethanol Extraction

A Revolution In Ethanol Extraction

A revolution in ethanol extraction. Ethanol extraction is far from new, it goes back to ancient shamans. In 1996, Eden Labs ushered in a revolution in ethanol extraction with the launch of Coldfinger technology. This prepared the industry for scaling in the current hemp and CBD extraction markets. Yet Eden Labs’ vision to promote clean, healthy extraction methodologies across various industries has not wavered in nearly 25 years. To learn more about the versatility of ethanol extraction, connect with Eden Labs at edenlabs.com.

A Revolution In Ethanol Extraction

Ethanol is a relatively common solvent for performing cannabis extractions. As a polar solvent, ethanol binds to water-soluble compounds within the plant material. Full Extract Cannabis Oil, or FECO, is well-known for the wide array of plant compounds. This contains including not only cannabinoids and terpenes, but aldehydes, ketones, esters, and other beneficial compounds in the raw materials. However, ethanol extracts like FECO typically look like the plant matter they were extracted from a dark, thick and muddy, mostly due to chlorophyll content. With a higher boiling point than butane, the recovery of ethanol is typically more difficult and much slower. Additionally, ethanol extracts typically don’t create products like shatter and require more post-processing than other methods.
