Cannabis Oil Extraction and Filtration – The medical and recreational marijuana industry is growing fast. The newest trend is THC and CBD oil extraction for a purer product to be used as is, or to be put in vaporizer pens, and other forms like topical creams, edible products, etc. CBD and THC Oil filter paper is needed for final filtration in CBD/THC extraction.
Great Lakes Filters carries cannabis filter paper grades ranging nominally from 0.7 to 250 micron.
We supply any diameter of cannabis lab filters needed of Buchner funnel filtration, and cut right in house in our facilities, meaning affordable prices.
We can also supply the funnels, glassware, filter housings, and pumps.
Using Whatman? We can cross reference that too!
Cannabis plant matter with CO2, Ethanol, or Butane is run through an opened or closed loop extraction to create crude oil. The next step is critical for cleaning that crude oil, and removing the plant waxes from the mixture. The mixture is rinsed and chilled in lab grade alcohol. That chilled mixture is then filtered using cannabis oil filter paper in a Buchner funnel, under a vacuum.
The filter paper circles for filtering cannabis oil are used to remove plant wax. They are disposable, cost effective, and filter the mixture down to the desire micron range needed to eliminate that wax. Membrane filter discs can also be used in the process (We can supply those as well).
Once plant wax is removed from the extract, leaving a mix of alcohol and THC/CBD. The alcohol is then put in a distillation system and reclaimed. You are left with the cannabis oil.
Since the Buchner funnel filtration method uses a vacuum, the lab paper needs to withstand the strength of a vacuum, especially when wet. If the incorrect paper is used, it may tear. Popular Buchner funnel sizes can vary in size, from a few mm to up 36 inches in diameter.
