Short Path Distillation Techniques: CBD Hemp Extractions

The short path distillation process has become increasingly popular in the extraction industry for its versatility and efficiency. The short path method can produce yields of up to 99.9% CBD while taking up a fraction of the space of conventional fractional distillation equipment. Distillation is a method for separating compounds based on their unique physical properties, like melting point, boiling point, crystallization, etc. One of the most common forms of distillation is by using boiling points. When the compounds’ molecules are heat-sensitive, processors use Short Path Distillation to separate them from one another.

Short path distillation can be used to separate cannabinoids from the other therapeutically beneficial compounds found in cannabis. This shortens production times and reduces equipment size, while increasing overall purity of the extracts produced. The short term method has become increasingly popular because it is a versatile technique that can accommodate a wide variety of starting materials, as well as high boiling point compounds. In addition to CBD, short path distillation can also be used to produce high-purity extracts from other cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. This allows for the creation of custom formulations that are tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual patient.

The short path method has quickly become a preferred technique for processors interested in shortening production times while increasing the overall purity of their extracts. Not only does short path distillation produce high-quality CBD, but it also allows for a wider variety of starting materials and higher boiling point compounds to be processed through it as well. In addition to CBD, short path can process other cannabinoids such as THC, terpenes and flavonoids, giving processors the ability to create unique formulations for each individual patient.
