Denver – Decarbitation is bringing new technology to the market for the decarboxylation of cannabis at unprecedented efficiencies. Decarboxylation is the “activation” of cannabinoids (like THC, CBD, CBG, etc.) by removal of CO2 with heat. The cannabis plant initially produces cannabinoids in their acidic form. THCA, for example, is the acidic form of THC and is not psychoactive. To become psychoactive, it must be decarboxylated or activated to THC. Decarboxylation in the past has been achieved with resistive heating technology, which tends to cause hot spots and scorching. These historical methods generate losses of 10% or more of the valuable cannabinoids and terpenes.
Decarbitation, however, takes a different approach with their patented controlled cavitation technology. With a Decarbitation System, typical losses are less than 1%.
Benefits of the Decarbitation System include:
- 99+% cannabinoid activation in 30 minutes
- 10% yield improvements or more
- Maintains max terpenes and cannabinoids
- Scalable precision heating
- Single user operation
- Typical ROI less than one season
By extracting more and degrading less, the Decarbitation System pays for itself in less than one season. The system can be seamlessly integrated with other equipment and is readily scalable to meet your processing needs.
