CBD isolation from CBD hash material (entry level)

Thank you for the response coppertop, the difference of THCa and THC i think is what I am confusing my self with. Ive only ever read about THC distillation really, all my CBD related info is about 2 days deep right now.

Thank you for the links qma very much appreciated.

going to see if I can compile and CBD processing info, and if I can determine the scale / volume a smaller set up would allow with my sort of starting material…

If I can figure out those things I think I would be willing to take the plunge on making it a reality and paying a consultant to help me with getting it all done to finish.

If you balk at paying more than 100k for a chromatography column you are gonna have a really bad time when it comes to securing permits. To be competitive in the extraction and distillation side of things, you need access to a lot of very expensive equipment that hold certifications. Same with your building.

You read wrong. Columns dont cost 100k, CPC machines and other specialized for the industry do. I am clearly just saying I want to avoid industrial means because Obviously I am not capable of it. There is a clear point and mission in this post to isolate cbd at an entry level. Meaning in your home even. This sort of input isnt very pertinent. You can barrade me all you want with " In the commercial industry this is how they do it" But you know ive probably already read about that, and thats not stuff I can do, So right now I need to work in baby steps.

Yes you can isolate CBD very efficiently with large scale equipment, we already know this.

User’s QMA and QGA both reported to moderation for harassment and scamming.


just so everyone know QGA is the guy who messaged me pretty much saying " hey I have a school degree pay me money for consulting" Without actually providing any actually useful info to add any merit to their credibility or skill. This person is a scammer, and NOT a resisted consultant in the community from what I have been able to gather.


lol let em know baby!!!


nice shit posting and making this community a worse place than it could be very nice man!


:joy: Its good to know we have such diligent members to stop these consultation scams! Some members really expect to be paid for their time!!! :rofl: The GALL


the best part is you think you’re right about anything when this is all legal and happening with a bussiness, Just trying to do research into a " possibility" but people like you make the effort entirely fucking tedious dude. Point of my thread isnt to explain my fucking life situation to you. What are you a fucking cop? do you need my fucking bussiness info? jesus dude. give me a goddamn break. You know nothing you asked is fucking relevant. SURE the brokering company im working with may put down big bucks for a large lab maybe I want to proof of concept before making a pitch to them ?? You dont know my life stop trying to assume you know everything and trying to be an elitest dick about it dude like common.

You snapped when i asked you a question. It kinda gave me an idea of your situation. I still haven’t been insulting, but it’s kinda funny how you you expect the community to help you with the attitude you have. I’m gonna go ahead and let you know that if you try to do this out of a residential zone, you are gonna have some REAL issues on the horizon.


I greatly appreciate your concern if it helps you out personally I’ll let you know that your " residential " worries are not an issue and are not a reality. The point of the thread was to inquire on Entry level separation, simple enough that someone could do it " From home" I Never once said anything was being done in an on professional envrionment or in a home (Or even happening in reality Ever at all period). Please dont misunderstand… As far as everything goes Everything I discuss is All theoretical as it literally All is. I Just wanted information and i got a goddamn War out of it.

I suggest you step away from this for a bit and come back when you’re less worked up. Both of the members you’re attacking have tried to be helpful, and have been helpful contributors to this community.

Much of the information you’re seeking has been posted in previous threads, many of which have been posted above.


Warnings all around. Get this thread back on topic or quit posting here. Any more off topic discussion in this thread, from any parties, will result in a 1 day shadow ban.


Here is a thread of people trying to make ice wax while pretending bentonite clay doesn’t exist :man_shrugging:

BHO is one of the best methods for extraction. @Killa12345 has the abbsolute best deal on closed loops, and he also ships faster and responds quicker than anyone else in the industry.


@qma I laughed at your response as much as the next guy, but so this kid does not get hurt doing something dumb, or worse harm others…

Newbarist please take a look at this article. Butane can have serious risks if you hook stuff up wrong / have a leak / don’t know what you are doing.

This happened just down the street form one of my homes recently. Butane is no joke and not something to play with inside a building without a properly vented laboratory setup. (Not affordable as a beginner)

That said, desipite your attitude, I wanted to say something. (Also my post might help others reading this stay safe.)

If you really want to get started on a budget invest in a 1 or 2 liter short path distillation system. Buy winterized Ethanol crude or BHO crude oil from another processor that has the equipment to do it safely, things like flammable materials laboratory freezers designed to be explosion proof for winterization and such. Sure it will cost you. Several thousand for just a liter, but then you can use your 1 to 2 liter distillation system to process it into distillate fairly safely without harming yourself or others on a small budget. You will most likely, if you have done your homework, more than double the value of the crude you purchased. Then you can flip the distillate or trade it for more crude oil. If you want to take advantage of your “source”, I would find someone local to do Ethanol extraction or BHO extraction on it and then use the winterized crude they produced for distillation. Once you have flipped many batches, learned lots along the way, and hopefully made some cool friends and some good money, you can invest in the proper equipment and facility needed to do what you want to accomplish safely. Hope this helps.

despite the smart ass unhelpful responses of the many prior to your post I already had a decent grasp on all of this. Its just to my disadvantage when looking into something for the first time I go in asking as if I have close to zero background … Why? because it leaves you in a better position to pull in information that you may have overlooked that can be useful…

By no means will I ever work with butane…

The fact i am referred to as " kid " is quite comical.

We’ve already been designing our own spinning band distillation apparatus’s and have manufactures on standby to manufacture them to our engineer’s specifications.

(we also have a biotage HPFC system)

We have a lab currently being built by the producer of the material mentioned in the original post that I am closely working with…

we already have lab’s that are equipped for distillation we already have access too. I only Just wanted to " cannabis industry’s " stand point but I got just that. A horde of unhelpful money hungry ass hat’s.

It greatly makes me laugh to see summit research’s latest videos talking about setting their SPD to work in a modular manner… Its almost Like these people Smoke weed first and learned about lab technique second… Its really quite hysterical to see how little anyone knows in this industry compared to a lab trained educated individual. I am not saying people dont know anything, nor am I trying to insult those who are skilled. I only speak on what I have observed as a whole in the " cannabis science " industry.

Honestly This thread went to shit and went entirely useless when user’s like QMA decided they wanted not allow this thread to gain any usefulness and continue to harass about illegal activity and other bullshit taht is entirely irrelevant. QMA doesnt know my life. QMA doesnt know the farm and businesses I am speaking of or working with. He was literally just being an ass hole its pretty obvious. And all he wanted to do was to instigate an argument and make the situation difficult. Why in the hell do I owe any sort of life explanation to a random internet bully ? It just doesnt make sense unless they are just trying to derail the subject and be just that… A bully. Does every thread on this forum start with questioning the legality of someones activity? No it doesnt its just plain insanity. We have full COA’s, paper work, and license for the product we have and are working with.

I appreciate your intention in your response greatly. We have everything on lock in this realm already. It wasn’t hard to figure out, but this thread was zero assistance unfortunately.

I didnt make this thread solely for my own information, but so when others who ARE new to this come into it they have quality and safe information they wont do something stupid with. But nope We just got a troll fest from a user in this community that literally only isnt banned by future BECAUSE he has good information despite him being a frustrating mess to communicate with despite your feelings on them or how much you’ve paid them apparently.

Everyone want to be a useless ass hat, Thank you for having good intentions and attempting to help.
