Abstract

With the ever increasing demand for the isolation of chemical compounds from Cannabis, supercritical carbon dioxide extraction serves as one of the most safe, effective, and promising extraction techniques for producing high purity Cannabis concentrates. In this presentation, many of the chemical principles involved in the extraction of desirable compounds from Cannabis Sativa will be explored. The complex mixture of the natural compounds present in Marijuana, and their general properties, will be detailed to set the stage for the chemistry behind their separation and isolation. The specific focus will be placed on the theory and methodology of utilizing supercritical CO2 to produce high purity concentrates for medical, recreational, research and pharmaceutical purposes.
