Short Path Distillation of THC

Short Path Distillation - sometimes referred to as molecular separation is a process that creates a high value clear distillate from cannabis oil concentrates. The percentage of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabidiol) in the distillate depends on the strain of cannabis or hemp trim used in your cannabis extraction process. Your cannabis or hemp trim needs to be turned into winterized BHO (Butane Hash Oil) or winterized CO2 Oil concentrates through an extraction process before you can begin distilling.

THC Distillate


A Turnkey Solution

The short path distillation process is split into two passes - the first pass in the evaporator isolates the Terpenes (which can be reintroduced to the distillate) from the cannabinoids and the second pass removes the lipids, impurities and solvents leaving you with an odorless high value clear distillate. Our distillation equipment creates a distillate that can produce a fine oil used in vape cartridges, tinctures or edibles. The cannabis industry has advanced by leaps and bounds in recent years with new discoveries on the rise. There are lots of benefits to distillate, which has skyrocketed its demand and led to price increases at the same time.
