The Problem

•“Extraction is the key operation in the manufacturing of a botanical ingredient.” (Falcao et al, 2015)

•“One of the biggest problems in the industry today is consistency.” (Miller, 2015)

•The NEW botanical extraction industry has few regulations and very little control over the extraction process with little regard to SAFETY or STANDARDIZATION.

•As the MJ industry has exploded unwitting first time extraction companies that have never extracted before are popping up all over using dangerous uncontrollable processes created by companies that made poor copies of prior working models.

•Current industry followed aggressive marketing controlled by a lack of knowledge in the Extraction Art.
