Short Path Distillation of THC Using Cannabis or Hemp

Short path distillation of THC sometimes referred to as molecular distillation is a process that creates a high value clear distillate containing THC and CBD as well as other cannabinoids. The percentage of THC and CBD in the distillate depends on the strain of cannabis or hemp that you use. Your starting material can be cannabis trim or hemp which then needs to be turned into a winterized BHO (Butane Hash Oil) or winterized CO2 Oil. The process is split into two parts where on the first cut you remove the Terpenes from the cannabinoids and the second cut removes the impurities and solvents, leaving you with a solvent-less and odorless high value clear distillate. The THC distillate can be made into dab, shatter or a fine oil used in vape cartridges or edibles. The cannabis distillation industry has advanced by leaps and bounds in recent years, and demand for CBD & THC distillate is at an all-time high. There are lots of benefits to oil and distillate, which has skyrocketed its demand and led to price increases at the same time.
