The advantage of Vantage Hemp Co.’s CBD extraction process
Our extraction process takes place in our two purpose-built facilities located in Greeley, Colorado named Falcon and Raven. The Falcon building is set up for the receipt of hemp biomass where rigorous testing will be performed to ensure it meets predefined specifications for quality before being logged into inventory. Once logged into inventory it will then undergo various processes in preparation for extraction. The Falcon building houses our CO2 extraction units. Also housed in Flacon is the analytical laboratory in which we are able to perform cannabinoid profile and moisture analysis. It also houses lab scale versions of our full scale equipment to allow us to perform process development to optimize various purification steps. The Raven building houses our hydrocarbon extraction equipment along with all the further purification steps which include winterization to produce full spectrum oil, wiped film short path distillation system to produce CBD distillate and a Nutsche filtration system for the production of CBD isolate. It is important to note that both the Falcon and Raven buildings were designed and built in full consultation with the City of Greeley and the Greeley Fire Department.Vantage Hemp Co. focuses on the production of CBD extracts from hemp grown in the U.S. The combination of CO2 and hydrocarbon extraction coupled with large scale cutting edge purification to produce oils, distillates and isolates yields highly pure extracts.
