Post Processing

By adding nanoemulsion systems to our lineup, Root Sciences is (yet again) changing best practices in the production of infused beverages and edibles.

Post Processing

1. Extraction

Root Sciences is proud to announce our partnership with DEVEX, the global leader in Cryo Ethanol Extraction Equipment, paving the way for cryo ethanol as a sustainable solution for pre-distillation crude cannabis oil.

2. DISTILLATION

By using molecular separation, we separate THC from terpenes, lipids, impurities and solvents to leave an odorless and golden distillate. Our standard unit processes up to 1500 ml per hour of concentrates into high quality distillate.

3. Post-Processing

Compared to traditional hemp and cannabis edibles and beverages, products produced with nanoemulsions take effect more quickly, deliver more consistent experiences, provide a cleaner taste, and significantly increase the bioavailability of the active ingredients: cannabinoids.

Step #2: Distillation

Step 2: Best-in-Class Distillation

Root Science’s Short Path Distillation System is one of a kind, featuring a short path evaporator with an internal condenser and atmospheric discharge arms for producing distillate that ranks top amongst the competition. With short path distillation, a decrease of boiling temperature is obtained by reducing the operating pressure. It is a continuous process with very short residence time. This is great for making large quantities of continuous feed with greater consistency. High evaporation rates allow for more distillate to be captured while the relatively low processing temperatures contributes to the fact that there aren’t any solvents needed to move the extract material through the process. Most importantly, this system will separate cannabis oil into high concentrations of THC and CBD distillates. Flavor and experience are more consumer-centered advantages but for producers, there are many more that come with employing either a short path distillation system or short path wiped film distillation process.

Separate, evaporate, concentrate or purify by using the superior process of short residence time, at a lower temperature, without degradation of your heat-sensitive material with the wiped film technique. In some cases, the separation efficiency of a single stage wiped film distillation unit is not enough to achieve decent product qualities. In such cases wiped film evaporators combined with a rectification column with several separation stages (theoretical plates) are used to increase the separation efficiency.

Short Path Distillation is sometimes referred to as molecular separation which is a process that creates a high value distillate from cannabis oil concentrates. As global distributors of the VTA Short Path Distillation Plant VKL 70-5, Root Sciences ensures new customers are properly setup, trained and ready to make high-quality distillate on day one.

Step #3: Nanoemulsification

Step 3: Post-Processing Nanoemulsions

Hemp and cannabis nanoemulsion-based products provide substantial benefits when compared to traditionally manufactured edibles and beverages.

Recent studies indicate products created with nanoemulsions take effect more quickly than traditional infused edibles and deliver more consistent and enjoyable experiences for overall consumers in this market. Most consumers will also report a much cleaner taste upon consumption. The proprietary nanoemulsification encapsulation and micronization technologies also greatly increase the bioavailability of the active ingredients: cannabinoids.
