Root Sciences and VTA announce major product line expansion to provide a wide range of cannabis distillation equipment solutions worldwide.

Root Sciences and VTA joined forces in 2015 to introduce one of the first distillation equipment solutions to the cannabis processing market. Today, they’ve expanded their options to the market with 8 new standard distillation models, now ranging from a throughput of .65L to 22L per hour, with larger custom options available.

Machines are available to suit a range of operations, from small-scale labs focusing on the recreational THC market, all the way up to large hemp processing facilities focusing on industrial-scale CBD production, and everything in between.

Root Sciences has a wealth of experience working with suppliers and manufacturers to tailor equipment specifically to the hemp and cannabis industries, with honest and accurate throughput/yield rates that reflect that.
