Ethanol extraction is not only popular at chemical and industrial fields, but also used in people’s daily life, because ethanol has a very good solubility. So many people have been extracting substances by using ethanol as washing solvent for a while. And next let’s go through the process of making extraction at home and the equipment we need:
1. The first step is to wash the hemp plant, in order to extract cbd from hemp plant. For this step, you can make it at a set of glassware. After this step, you could get a liquid mixture of cbd and ethanol and solid residue, then next step what you need to do is to separate the two substances.
2. The second step is to separate the liquid and the solid. For separating liquid and solid substances, we often use the filtration method. The equipment we need is a filter. And then pour the mixture on the filter, then the solid substances will stay on the filter, while the liquid substances will flow into the other container. In this case, we can generally get the cbd liquid.
3. The third step is to get the ethanol within liquid evaporated , in order to concentrate the cbd. After evaporating ethanol, you will get a highly concentrated form of the botanical components harvested from the hemp plant.
Ethanol is very suitable for extracting the THC, CBD, terpenes, chlorophyll, fats, lipids and wax compounds from all kinds of plants, which is widely used in so many fields. For example, it is widely used to wash plant materials in chemical experiments, chemical purification, chemical pharmacy, preparation of traditional Chinese medicines and many other fields.
