Abstract

Hydrocarbon and Ethanol based extracts and the processes which produce them will be a significant component to the second part of Canadian cannabis legalization (also known as “Legalization 2.0”), coming October 17th, 2019. This next wave of new and exciting cannabis products will bring a variety of new extract products to market, some that have gained popularity over the last several years in other legal markets, and some that are on the leading edge of cannabis product development.

This webinar introduces those products and methods of production, drawing upon examples in other fields to draw relatable comparisons. The webinar also touches on the chemistry and the process engineering involved in creating these products.
