#WeedWednesday CO2 Extraction

June 28, 2017 , , , ,

Welcome to the first edition of cannabis college. I plan to present a short informative post each Wednesday about the current state of development in the science of medical marijuana. Much has changed, and I anticipate more science based therapies will be developed using cannabis in the near future. I work at the Desert Bloom Re-Leaf Dispensary grow, where we grow indoor and outdoor crops. In the lab and kitchen we produce a wide range of products, which is expanding as new products are tested and developed for the patients.  I am new on the job, and learning more every day.  I know I am curious about all the varieties being grown and the products on the market.  I hope to enlighten both myself and the gentle readers in this series on the science behind this growing industry. Patients now have amazing control of dosage and specific medicine for various conditions.  I want to find out more about this, and share what I learn with you.

Justin McKenzie is one of our head growers, with years of experience in growing and processing cannabis.  He was good enough to join me in the lab to answer some questions about CO2 extraction.  This is the beginning process for many end products. Next we will cover butane extraction in the lab, then go to the kitchen to see what happens there.  I am very curious about all the new ways to micro dose cuisine.

Sounds interesting. I’ve been wondering how they figure out the dosing, appropriate type, etc. 🙂

I love this. It really helps clarify information and put it into easy-to watch, easy-to- understand small bites!!
Thanks Pam!
