Flash Chromatography For THC Remediation Explained #2
Flash chromatography is used in the hemp and cannabis industry for a number of important reasons. One of the most important reasons for a hemp extraction business to use flash chromatography is to remediate psychoactive cannabinoids like delta 9 THC to ensure that the final extract is legal and safe for human consumption. Without flash chromatography, it would be difficult to ensure a legal hemp based product that remains under 0.3% delta 9 THC as mandated under the 2018 Farm Bill that legalized hemp processing. In this episode of extrakTALKS, Dr, Jon and Randall Thompson follow up on flash chromatography, how it is performed and why it is so critically important to the hemp and cannabis extraction process.
