With advanced facilities, designed and built by Entexs, the expertly qualified staff at Arbor Vita8 complete high-volume hemp extractions to produce the highest quality CBD and CBG oils and distillates for manufacturers. Our system and processes give you a safe, clean, and environmentally-friendly extraction..


How Ethanol Extraction Works

Through extensive research into the options for extraction, Arbor Vita8 selected an ethanol extraction system from Entexs. This high-tech approach allows us to offer a cost-effective extraction process that’s not only safer than other options, but helps us produce a superior product..


To create high-quality CBD and CBG oil and distillates using ethanol extraction, the hemp flowers and biomass are first saturated by ethanol. Soaking the hemp dissolves the plant waxes and extracts the cannabinoids. During the evaporation process, which comes next, cannabinoids get left behind as an oil.

Properly processed, oil produced from ethanol extraction will appear light-to-dark amber in coloration.


Why We Use Ethanol Extraction?

There are a variety of benefits to using ethanol over other options like butane or CO2 for hemp extraction. While each choice has pros and cons, our research has shown that ethanol proves itself the best in the essential categories of cleanliness, safety, and cost effectiveness. It’s also the option that’s best for the environment.

When compared with other extraction mediums, ethanol is the cleaner choice. Since it’s essentially alcohol, it presents little risk of toxicity..

/   2


As the least flammable extraction medium, ethanol is considered one of the safest solvents both in the hemp industry and beyond. As a water-soluble chemical, it’s easier and safer to handle and requires less complex and dangerous machinery to complete extraction.

Ethanol can help create a more cost-effective process because you can reuse it. It’s also more efficient since it bonds with both water-soluble and fat-soluble plant compounds for a full-spectrum extract.

Environmentally Friendly:

Through Arbor Vita8’s extraction process, we’re able to recycle 85% of the ethanol used each time. We waste less and use less, decreasing the byproducts of extraction we put into our environment.
