What is the process for extracting hemp oil?
The process for extracting hemp oil begins with the hemp plant being harvested and dried. This is done in order to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant. Once the plant is dried, it is then put through an extraction process. This can be done either through a C02 extraction process or a solvent-based extraction process. The C02 extraction process is the most popular as it results in a clean, pure oil with no residual solvents. After the extraction process, the hemp oil is then filtered, decarboxylated, and distilled. This process results in a pure, high-quality hemp oil.
How does hemp extract differ from CBD oil?
Hemp extract is the oil extracted from the hemp plant, which contains cannabidiol (CBD) as well as other active compounds. CBD oil is specifically derived from the hemp plant and contains higher concentrations of CBD, as well as other beneficial compounds like terpenes and flavonoids. Hemp extract can contain varying levels of CBD, while CBD oil is more standardized and contains a higher concentration of CBD.
What are the benefits of consuming hemp extract?
Hemp extract is a natural supplement derived from hemp plants that is rich in beneficial compounds like cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. Hemp extract can provide a variety of health benefits, including reducing inflammation, relieving pain, and improving sleep. It can also help to boost the immune system and reduce anxiety. Hemp extract can also be used topically to treat skin conditions, including psoriasis and eczema. Additionally, hemp extract has been found to contain a range of antioxidants that can help to protect the body from damage caused by free radicals.
What types of hemp extracts are available?
Hemp extracts come in a variety of forms, such as tinctures, capsules, oils, and topical creams. Tinctures are alcohol or oil-based extracts that are taken orally, while capsules are ingested as-is. Oils can be used for cooking and topical applications, and topical creams are used to target localized areas of the body. There are also topical balms and salves that provide relief from muscle and joint discomfort.
How does the hemp extractor machine work?
The hemp extractor machine works by using a combination of mechanical, thermal, and chemical processes to extract the oil from hemp and other plant material. The machine typically contains a series of chambers, one for the hemp material and another for the extracted oil. The hemp material is placed into the first chamber, where a pressurized, heated solvent is injected. This solvent breaks down the oils and releases them from the hemp material. The oil is then collected in the second chamber and filtered to separate the extract from the solvent. The extracted oil is then ready to use.

Maratek believes this is the best extraction method for providing scalability for the future, as it is very easy to build out from your starting point. FDA Approved Solvent allowing you to store more solvent on-site to process higher volumes of biomass. We chose Maratek for there long standing reputation in the industrial plant fabrication industry. Their willingness to work with our redesign perimeters and special needs made it so we are able to produce more high grade cannabis oils per sq ft than almost any other lab in the world. Their techs answer when I call and have walked me through several complex troubleshooting exercises and have gotten me replacement parts quickly. This unit is beyond reliable. We have ran our evaporator almost for the last year and have very few problems beyond simple wear parts. I highly recommend Maratek. It has lived up to every Maratek claim. We had tried another system that was nothing but headache after headache. We are pleased the Maratek Solvent Saver was able to help use reclaim our waste solvents. They have enabled us to clean up our contaminated solvent waste so that we can re-use it on-site. Maratek has been a pleasure to work with since the day we first connected. I had been having a huge bottleneck in the recovery section of my processing line from using a falling film system, and a rotary evaporator. There were also issues of getting oil recovered with my ethanol, making it have a yellowish-orange tinge. After purchasing the Maratek C system, which was properly sized for my operation, the bottleneck disappeared and the system automatically combined the falling film, rotary evaporator, AND decarboxylation steps into one unit. My operators literally just ensure there is an infeed, a place for the outfeed, and set it and forget it. Their quality of equipment, along with confidence to give throughput guarantees made it easy for me to decide. Maratek is a great Canadian company that has taken decades of solvent recovery equipment manufacturing experience and brought it to the cannabis industry. Theyve been great to work with on clients projects which their equipment seamlessly integrating with our EV-MASS ethanol extraction solution. Both Marateks and Evolveds Sales and Engineering teams have developed and provided turn-key ethanol extraction solutions that are proudly manufactured in Canada. The Maratek Solvent Saver was installed just over 3 years ago and I can say it has lived up to its claims of being able to provide quality recovered solvent for reuse on our Heidelberg sheetfed presses. We had looked at other systems but the flexibility, small space requirements, and being able to use our current solvent without switching made the Maratek system our final choice. We feel we made the right decision. Lake Country Press believes in doing its part in helping our environment, the Maratek Solvent Saver definitely plays a big part in our environmental and cost saving initiatives. We have had the Maratek Solvent Saver for several years now and without a doubt it helped us achieve and maintain lower waste generator status and make our waste volume more manageable. I allow tours for Maratek because I am proud of what it does for us and feel everyone that creates solvent waste should have a Maratek System. We have had very few issues with our recycling unit. The installation and on-site setup was simple and fast. Request a Quote. Automating the Cannabis Oil Extraction Process Extracting oils from cannabis and hemp is not an easy process. Learn More.
