Separations, testing and remediation via chromatography are critically important parts of hemp and cannabis oil refinement that need to be fully understood. Due to the currently illegal status of cannabinoids like delta 9 THC, remediation of those cannabinoids is not only important, but absolutely essential to ensure that you create and sell a CBD product that is safe and legal to your customers. Using chromatography to remediate delta 9 from hemp derived extracts is the most efficient way to perform this task. In this episode of extrakTALKS,. Dr. Jon sits down and explains the ins and outs of chromatography in the extraction industry. Listen up as he details the critical importance of remediation, testing and separations using chromatography and the pure99 HPLC system from extraktLAB.
Dr. Jon goes in depth Into the chromatography system: pure99. He shows when to take samples, what to consider to get the best separation, and how to read a chromatogram.
