CBD powder is incredibly simple to use. CBD powder is comparable to your typical smoothie protein powder additive. It is ingestible and is most commonly used as an additive. Like other baking ingredients that are in powder form, it is extremely easy to work with.

You can produce hundreds of kilograms of CBD isolate with system like the extrakLAB Bulk CBD Isolate package. The system includes all of the equipment required to manufacture isolate at approximately 2 kg per hour.

Adhering to the mainstream development of CBD infused goods and products, another attention grabbing alternative is being made available in large quantities for people wanting to experience the natural hemp plants therapeutic effects without the risk of mind altering effects from other psychoactive cannabinoids.

When properly manufactured, CBD powder will be tasteless, scentless, and Delta-9 free. These factors give quality to your inventive endeavors. CBD powder provides you with such consistency, and ease of use no matter how you decide to use it.

CO2 has a particular selectivity and solvent power dependent upon temperature and pressure. CO2 has adequate solvent power at elevated pressures of 5000 psi at 50 degrees capable of extracting 90% of cannabinoids in about an hour. At low pressure and low temperature, CO2 can be used selectively to extract terpenes and terpene rich mixtures. This is something you can’t do that with ethanol.

Without the presence of psychoactive cannabinoids found in other hemp derived goods, while still offering a means of enjoying the hemp plant’s products, CBD powder has the advantage. Starting with CBD Isolate for your CBD innovation is almost effortless. CBD isolate might be the ideal product for you if you’re looking for a place to start.

To make any concentrate you first have to extract. Manufacturers can use either a hydrocarbon solvent, like butane or propane, or ethanol solvent. Typically, we see ethanol used for the production of CBD isolate often with the use of a larger commercial extraction system – like a centrifuge. Smaller extraction systems can be used, it just depends on your throughput goals.

Making CBD isolate requires more steps than creating a CBD oil, as you have to remove every other element, such as phospholipids and flavors, from the product. While the process is more complex and requires additional equipment, it creates a totally pure end product that is free of anything besides CBD.

Step 1: Extraction

Depending on what end product you’re trying to make you may prefer to use a CBD isolate powder when manufacturing lotions, edibles, beverages, etc. In order to make a powder you are simply taking the CBD isolate crystals and grinding them down into a powder-like substance.

While under vacuum, the extract is loaded into the feed tank where it passes over a heated rotating plate. From there, the heated oil then enters a secondary vessel where there are spinning wipers and a thin film is created around the heated, jacketed vessel. A long condensing coil in the middle of the vessel, cooled with recirculating fluid, recondenses the vapors back into liquid form. Receiving vessels then collect the CBD (known as ‘main body’) from the terpenes, volatiles and high boiling point cannabinoids (known as ‘heads’ and ‘tails’).

This crystallization process is started by putting the CBD oil into a large vat, or reactionary vessel, with a stirring attachment. The mixture is heated while constantly being stirred. Then, the temperature is lowered and the rate of stirring is slowed down. Once the mixture has cooled and nucleation starts to occur (the initial stages of crystallization), the stirring rate is drastically increased, which causes the crystals to separate from the solution. After this, the crystals are rinsed with pentane, or another chemical solvent, to remove any remaining unwanted impurities.

The second type of machine that we produce is a high-performance liquid chromatography machine. The high-performance liquid chromatography equipment uses a stationary phase that is in the form of particles that are packed into a column. The sample is pumped over the column and a separation of THC and CBD takes place. We do not use a solvent gradient unless we are cleaning the column.

The next step in the process is to concentrate the matrix by removing the solvent so that it can be injected on the chromatography column. The chromatography in this case is tuned to remove THC from the remaining CBD that is left in the supernatant.

CBD Manufacturing is a growing industry worldwide and it is important that manufacturers meet facility, equipment, process, and training quality standards.

Broad Spectrum Production Machine

CBD isolation from hemp is an important manufacturing process that is used to make CBD isolate, or CBD crystal. CBD isolate is a purified form of hemp and is derived from industrial hemp. CBD isolation can also take the form of broad spectrum distillate which is a distillate without any detectable THC.

CBD isolate manufacturing involves two different potential techniques:

Then the CBD crystal is typically washed and dried so that it is also THC free but does not contain the phytonutrients, pigments and terpenes.

Due to the high level of processing, CBD isolate is not considered organic nor can it be certified organic. However, broad spectrum distillate can certainly be made organically and labeled organic.
