I’m currently working on a large CBG disty order and found out rather late in the process that the CBG is hot for chlorpyrifos. I’ve never dealt with this particular pesticide and have done enough research to know its something we need completely out of the material.
Does anyone know if using 10a sieves would do enough? What about the common remediation methods, outside of saline washing as I know that wont work for this particular compound. If I cannot go the regular route, which it seems someone else has tried and it didnt work. What does that leave me with? Dissolve the disty in some sort of hexane, methanol, water mixture, and separate the layers hoping the chlorpyrifos has an affinity for one?
Well any type of degradation process is gonna give you a chance of undesirable breakdown products. I would highly recommend trying it on a few gram scale and testing the waters, otherwise you will have to go through much more expensive and labor intensive methods.
Some slight loss in total cannabinoids but decent. Not sure what isomers could form. Might be worth a small test sample run to see what happens. I know your looking to baby that cbg lol. I would maybe try breaking a sample down in heptane and run through a stacked filter like c.r.c. Then distill
Hi OregonCBD32, ok we work with a company that uses a unique product for removing pesticides. They currently work with many of the large soft drink companies doing this. They have a lab and would be willing to take a sample of your product in house and screen it to see which of there products would do the best job of removing the Chlorpyrifos material. Then they would send the product back to you for your own testing. Just le t us know if you would like to do this. Thanks, Greg firstname.lastname@example.org
