Solvent extraction for soluble components of plants is one of the safest forms of extraction and is one of the least expensive options available.
Botanical Extraction is placing a solid (plant) in a solvent in order to remove soluble (dissolvable) components, similar to making coffee or tea.
Extraction techniques are used to separate the components and remove them from the plant matrix. Various methods can divide plant material into parts, or extracts, that contain different chemicals. Extraction techniques are often used to isolate specific desirable compounds or a producer may seek to create a single extract with many desirable compounds; sometimes called whole plant extracts.
When it comes to plant material and essential oils, keeping your finished product at certain temperatures plays a critical role, from transport to a lab, or when it arrives at its final destination for sale.
Keeping the plant in a cool, dry place away from sunlight is of the utmost importance. Light can quickly degrade cannabinoids and a temperature 70 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, is a perfect breeding ground for mildew, mold, and other forms of unwanted bacteria.
For short term storage, keep your product in a cool, dry location at a moisture range of no greater than 50% relative humidity. For longer term storage, a freezer can be used, as long as the container is properly sealed. A desiccant or desiccator can also be utilized to keep the material at this relative humidity range.
