Hive Extracts CO2 Oil Pen Kit (Includes .5ml Cartridge)
CO2 extraction uses pressurized carbon dioxide to take as many desirable cannabinoids from a marijuana or hemp plant as possible. It involves taking out the plant’s essential waxes, cannabinoids, and terpenes. In the end, CO2 oil is a healthy-looking amber-colored oil which you can use as a tincture or vaporize.
Manufacturers use carbon dioxide because it is a versatile, ‘tunable’ solvent. It acts as a solvent at a specific temperature and pressure range. However, it doesn’t have the dangers associated with solvents. As a result, consumers benefit from a premium-quality, clean oil with no toxic by-products.
Did you know that CO2 extraction is a standard extraction method in the herbal supplement and food industries? If you drink decaffeinated coffee, for example, you are already using a product that relies on carbon dioxide extraction to remove caffeine from coffee beans. Also, the gas is an extraction solvent in essential oil production.
Each kit includes:
- 1 x 0.5ml Single Pass CO2 oil cartridge
- 1 x C-cell Battery
- 1 x USB Charger
