Supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) has been studied and optimized for a variety of purposes in the food and nutraceutical industries. However, optimization data related to the use of SFE for extracting cannabinoids from Cannabis sativa is limited. This talk will focus on how cannabinoid extraction can be optimized by altering the static soak and dynamic flow durations of CO2 while maintaining a consistent solvent-mass to feed-mass ratio. Mass balance and extraction efficiency data will be presented and discussed.
