The CO2 extraction process

Weedley products are all-natural, so we make sure to keep in sync with nature’s own lifecycle
Our products originate in the ground, when we first plant carefully selected seeds from which the ideal plants grow, and all, of course, subject to the requirements of European Union certification.
The plant grows on fertile soil, free of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and heavy metals. Then, when the time for harvest comes, we gently pick the flowers.
The process takes time and is done in traditional methods, which best preserve the plants’ trichomes.
Therefore, providing us with the natural and organic hemp biomass we need for the drying stage. We let the crop dry naturally at the appropriate temperature for ensuring that the cannabinoids and terpenes will be completely ready for the extraction.

How Do We Extract the CBD from the Plant?

In order to obtain the purest oil, we use an extraction method called CO2 supercritical extraction. First, we bring the CO2 to a supercritical state (the specific temperature and pressure at which it can be changed into liquid). Then, we force the CO2 through all the parts of the plant we want to use, and this extracts liquid, full of cannabinoids, terpenes, fat oils and all the essential nutrients. After the liquid is extracted from the plant, we proceed to the “precipitation stage” where we select the ingredients we want, such as the cannabinoids, and get rid of the unnecessary ones, chlorophylls for example.

Why use CO2? Is it safe?

A few quick facts about CO2: CO2 is odorless, tasteless and environmentally-friendly.

The mere fact that CO2 is not toxic and there are no CO2 residues in the extract, makes it the safest solvent. As opposing to other widely used solvents such as butane that might be highly toxic. Supercritical CO2 is popularly used in the extraction of coffee, vanilla and many other essential compounds from plants that make our lives better.
