What’s going on Future Fam? My friend’s lab is crushing CRD. The market increasingly wants uncut, 1,000mg CBD range 1 gram vape carts. So cutting down full spec distillate below 50% cbd isn’t as attractive to cart companies in this market. My friend has been selling kilos of CRD for $2,500! I have been pursuing it, as full spec disty gets increasingly commoditized.
I’ve read through all the threads here. I want to have my boys play around with mixing our extremely high potency CBD distillate with CBDa non-decarboxylated crude. Our crude is in the 78% cannabinoid range, so it seems like we have a great potential to pull this off.
I asked my lab manager that runs our crude (hexane wiped film extraction) if we can extract without decarbing. His answer was that in our process, decarboxylation is necessary for our solvent recovery process. While, I’m heavily involved in our operation, I’m certainly not a chemist like many of you. I was wondering if there was a recommendation on how this could be done, or if my lab manager is incorrect.
Unless I’m mistaken, I don’t see any CRD threads dated 2020. This industry moves fast. Thought it may be time to get the band back together. Thanks everyone!
EDIT: Am I correct that non-winterized crude would be the same as CBDa crude, and that winterizing/decarbing is what converts the CBDa to CBD? Thanks!
