Purity, the ongoing quest that drives every producer worth their salt toward achieving product perfection. As consumers become more informed on the degrees of quality and safety of cannabis products, purity continues to rank as a top priority.
With no singular definition, the perceived quality of consumer-driven cannabis products comes down to a combination of important factors including the growing environment and production techniques. However, achieving perfection doesn’t rest on the effort of a solo player. It is a culmination of everyone in the cannabis supply chain from growers and manufacturers, to retailers doing their part to ensure the end result is as nature intended.
The licensed cannabis space continues to grow at a rate that has made it challenging for businesses to keep pace with consumer demand without resorting to shortcuts, especially those focused on maintaining the natural essence of the plant. So how do you get the best for the grower, processor, and retailer without making compromises? Combine the purity of CO2 with the power of ethanol.
Cosolvent Injection System Results Backed by Data
The Cosolvent Injection System (CIS), new breakthrough technology from Vitalis Extraction Technology, is offering the ability to preserve cannabis’s natural purities and minimize harvest-to-extraction time, while delivering unmatched operational efficiency and throughput.
The Vitalis CIS injects a small amount of ethanol earlier into the CO2 extraction process, as opposed to during post-processing, leaving unwanted compounds in the raw material. This is achieved by using a combination of adjustments to the pressure and temperature of the CO2, and the concentration of ethanol. The Vitalis CIS even allows for the flexibility to bypass the ethanol injection entirely, capturing and preserving the plant’s natural benefits using CO2 as a mono-solvent if desired.
The introduction of a cosolvent option helps to support quicker processing times. In addition to reducing the volume of ethanol required in comparison to ethanol-only extraction, the Vitalis CIS system enables processors to pull the natural terpenes and cannabinoids in the extraction process, pinpointing the plant’s natural potencies to create pure, top quality products.
While extended customer research is still ongoing, the patent-pending Vitalis CIS is already helping companies adapt to evolving market conditions, and scale their operations by reducing their overall cost per gram. At a moment when efficiency and scale for business is at an all-time high, a simple boost to CO2 extraction is giving processors, farmers, and retailers one leg up on the stiff competition.
Flexibility & Adaptability to Extractor Operations
Designed as an add-on, as opposed to an alteration to the CO2 extraction operation, Vitalis CIS means greater flexibility and operational efficiency in the extraction process, allowing producers to pivot their production lines, without breaking the bank.
To make installation of the new add-on unit as easy as possible, Vitalis CIS features a ventilation line that satisfies all fire regulations (fully C1/D1 compliant), avoiding the need to alter the room classification, and can be used safely in ‘non-hazardous’ areas. Requiring only a standard 120V wall outlet and transportable on a small, wheel-mounted frame, the system has been designed to fit easily into any facility design.
The introduction of Vitalis CIS aims to best serve the company’s core customer base that includes producers of cannabis and hemp, while setting the benchmark for safety, service and performance.
