Consumers have become increasingly critical about what they put into their bodies, meaning the need to target, and preserve natural cannabis terpenes during the extraction process has become a top priority. While the results are worth it, the technical process has long been one of challenges and patience, which can lead to processors cutting corners on account of profit. Now, you don’t have to choose or make a trade-off between quality, purity, or revenue.
Christina Lake Cannabis Corp is a Licensed Producer of cannabis under the Cannabis Act which also received a Research and Development License from Health Canada on May 20, 2020. CLC’s facility consists of a 32-acre property, which includes over 950,000 square feet of outdoor grow space, offices, propagation and drying rooms, as well as research facilities, and a facility dedicated to processing and extraction.
Already unable to keep pace and seeking to scale, Christina Lake was looking for a solution that would compliment their current setup and operations.
The culmination of 12 months of intensive research and controlled real-world testing has offered partners like Christina Lake Cannabis Corporation the leg-up in an ever-evolving cannabis market - as the first of select few to receive the Vitalis Cosolvent Injection System (CIS). With flexibility at the core of it's design, the Vitalis CIS retains the ability to capture terpenes, operate using CO2 as a mono-solvent if desired, and remediate residual ethanol from the spent biomass. We set out to create a solution that would enhance the extraction process for our customers without making a trade-off between quality, purity, or profit.
Once concerned with their ability to get through their anticipated 88,000 kg of low-cost, high-quality, sun-grown cannabis annually CLC saw a staggering decrease in extraction runtime, lower operating pressures, greater selectivity in the extraction process, an increase in extract quality, and utilized minimal quantities of ethanol.
