Hello everyone !
I am currently trying to figure out how to go about entering the CBD isolation scene…
We have access top a large bulk of CBD hash material testing at about 47.7% CBD and 2.6% THC. (nearly 100k lb’s)
So with access to this material for very low wholesale cost I am trying to figure out how to entry level isolate CBD from this material at a good enough yield to scale up after some work…
all of the industrial CBD isolation equipment starts at 100k +, and I dont have investors just a very very good source of material thats inexpensive and good quality to work from.
From what ive read I will have to rely on some sort of chromatography type separation weather it be through a column through sillica, or liquid phase transfer(no sillica) using CPC (centrifugal partition chromatography) . But as I stated those systems are retailing at base costs of 100k + Not a resource that is an option for me.
I am unclear on the possibilities of distillation, from the bit Ive read before I read that heating the material at all will cause it to not beable to be isolated similar to how isolate is, and that distillate will always be runny / is different from the " CBD isolate" we all know in the “CBD community”
( or maybe some one can clear up the possibilities for me )
The end goal is to produce CBD isolate from the CBD hash material, and a bonus would be saving the THCA portion of the material as well. and scale up the business from there.
Only other possibility from working up from nothing is applying setting up the bussiness and then some how having some company who already processes CBD isolate to buy it off of me ( the raw hash)… and from the looks of it most people are looking for already made material… not material to process.
Looking for a solution to climb the ladder up into the CBD isolate world to be able to properly utilize the source of material I have access too.
edit: another question How much would people pay for this type of starting material to process it? I am seeing quotes of 300$/lab of 18% cbd biomass. I imagine this stuff is a MUCH better starting point than any of the material ive seen discussed.
