What is solventless extraction and why should I care?
Solventless Extraction is the process used at Power Biopharms to pull the cannabinoid compounds out of the plant. This is done using heat and pressure, which results in a syrup or sap-like substance which is the base of our farm’s full spectrum products.
Other extractors may choose to use solvents like Butane, or gasses like CO2, to pull their compounds from their plants. At our farm, we wanted to keep true to the plant thus giving our customers the most whole representation of the beneficial compounds.
