Co2 vs ethanol extraction

I have a question to ask. Co2 vs ethanol extraction, which method will yield more potency after going through short path? Thank you

That depends completely on how the solvent was used as well as how the crude is post processed.

One could reasonably get the same potency from either.


way too many variables to just answer that question easily. With that said, co2 tends to make a great looking distillate that wont be possible with warm ethanol extraction without polishing beforehand. Cold ethanol and co2 will make similar qualities of distillate

So if the end product is the same, what kind of short path equipment do I need to get to produce that kind of quality if I were to exact using ethanol?

Use the search function. Their are several threads that have information that will help you answer that question.
