When it comes to cannabis extraction, supercritical CO2 effectively dissolves and preserves the delicate cannabinoids and volatile terpenes without introducing harmful chemicals and leaving unwanted residues. The BOSS CO2 Extraction System uses a low temperature, natural, non-toxic process to extract concentrates simply and efficiently.
Supercritical extraction uses higher temperatures and pressures, creating more powerful or stronger solvent action. Supercritical tends to produce a fuller extract with more waxes and plant materials. It offers a faster extraction time with higher yield.
Subcritical has a lower relative solvency, pulling lighter oils while leaving behind most plant matter and waxes. With a relatively cooler temperature range, it’s an ideal extraction method for preserving delicate terpenes and more volatile cannabinoids. These cycles take a little longer.
