How Its Made
What separates the distillation process from others is, well of course the technology that’s been incorporated to Cannabis laboratories. Using a “Short Path Distillation” process that is new to the marijuana field.
Due to cannabis’ requiring a very high boiling point for its cannabinoids to vapourize, a short path distillation process with a high power vacuum was designed to distill at a lower temperature.
By introducing Root Sciences short path distillation process, we can now distill cannabinoids at very low temperatures. VTA’s distillation process equipment has a very low “residence time” ( The amount of heat a substance is exposed to while being evaporated. The more powerful a vacuum, the lower a temperature is required to vapourize any substance.
Using molecular distillation, virtually everything is separated; from your THC, to terpenes, to additional lipids, pesticides, plant material and all other components.
The THC distillation process is split into two parts where on the first cut you remove the Terpenes (which can be reintroduced to the THC distillate) from the cannabinoids and the second cut removes the lipids, impurities and solvents leaving you with an odourless high value clear distillate. The wiped film evaporator creates a distillate that can produce a fine oil used in vape cartridges, tinctures or edibles
Cannabinoids’ high boiling point results in a very high viscosity, or thickness. The system must be designed to cope with a very viscous substance (honey, for example), or cannabinoids in their purest form. In their purest forms, CBD is crystallized, but THC is a very thick substance. It must be handled and processed with care and skill to refine efficiently. VTA is Root Sciences’ company of choice: a uniquely qualified manufacturing system that can refine cannabis oil properly.
Advantages Of Distillate
The process not only creates a very pure cannabis extraction, it also leaves out the necessity for using solvents to bind with the marijuana products. Extractions such as BHO and Co2 require alcohol based solvents for their final product.
Although it’s not necessarily a bad thing or harmful for you, achieving a high purity of THC without any impurities is always a bonus.
A main attraction of Distilled cannabis is it’s extremely high THC content. This process allows for a 90-99% THC finished product! Miles ahead of the 15-25% flower THC content and 60-80% of BHO and Co2 Extractions. Paired with a very clean extraction process, you can see why THC Distillate is becoming an industry leading product.
The method in which pure, distilled THC is achieved also leaves us with a product that is inherently odourless and flavourless. Perfect for being discreet with your medical applications in a work space, even if it’s not 100% keen on it’s employees using cannabis as a medicine.
Benefits Of Using THC Distillate
Not only is distilled THC a very clean and pure extract, you can use it in almost any method you like, making it an extremely versatile medicine.
Thanks to having had all the impurities and chemicals removed, you’re left with a very clean smoke or vapour. Most of all this greatly improves it’s overall appeal to users who are adverse to harsh smoke.
Distillates effects are felt almost immediately after consumption. Due to having already had the THC activated, it will bring extremely quick results for patients who need fast acting medication.
Commonly Used By Medical Patients
Since the introduction of RSO ( Rick Simpson Oil ) high THC extracts are a proven method to incorporate high doses of cannabis to patients without having to smoke an entire tree a day. THC Distillate only requires a drop or 2 for it’s effects to be felt. Couple this with an almost immediate onset of effects, distillate is a perfect application for medical patients.
