As a trailblazing innovator in cannabis extraction, ABX demonstrated how to use CO2 to extract distillate cannabis oil way back in 2018. Since then, extraction tech has continued to evolve, and today at ABX, we use a variety of techniques and solvents, including ethanol.
Efficiency and THC potency are booming as top producers offer potent, pure cannabis distillate oils using these techniques..
Here's what you need to know.
The History of CO2 Extraction And The Shift To Ethanol
In previous years, ABX always used CO2 extraction to create distillate oil. The process is ideal… Read more
