The ONLY Cannabinoid and Mushroom Extraction Certification Available
The course covers conventional processes currently used in cannabis and mushroom extraction. The theory of concentration of natural products is based on Formulation Centric Theory.
From the 1980s to 2014, used basic extraction principles. From 2015 to 2021, more technology has been available. The process is and productivity has increased significantly over the past two years. In the next two years, it will double. The newer technology includes hyphenated technology, including microwave- assisted, acoustic-assisted, pulse-field energy, in rapid decompression. The use of multiple solvents in multiple ways of solventless extraction has increased.
The differences in similarities of cannabis and mushrooms are like popping a balloon versus blowing up the walls of a castle. The course explores how to increase the extraction of compounds in plant matter.
