An Inside Look into Our Cannabis Oil Concentrates
At Bakked we choose Supercritical CO2 Extraction to create our concentrates because it yields the highest quality oils and are 100% hydrocarbon free, leaves no residual heavy metals, and boasts potencies with over 80% of fully activated Δ9 THC.
CO2 Cannabis Extraction
Raw Material Sourcing
Premium cannabis oil concentrates are carefully created from the right ingredients. All raw material that is extracted by Organa Labs for use in Bakked-branded products is sourced from high-quality, locally grown cannabis (bud or trim) with regulatory compliance in mind. We ensure our CO2 cannabis extraction methods involve only the best raw ingredients so you can experience pure quality.
Supercritical CO2 Extraction
We choose supercritical CO2 cannabis extraction to create all of our cannabis oil concentrates because of its ability to separate cannabinoids, terpenes, and other non-polar components from the plant material. What’s left behind is a pure cannabis extract, free of all harmful residual solvents.
After extraction, our cannabis oil concentrates undergoe winterization. This freezing process using ethanol to filter the cannabinoids and terpenes from unwanted plant matter such as waxes, fats, lipids, and chlorophyll. This process creates a purer and clearer oil.
THC-A is a non-psychoactive compound in cannabis which requires heat and time to convert it to the psychoactive form of Δ9 THC – this process is referred to as decarboxylation. At Organa Labs we use the slow and low method to decarboxylate our oil to ensure volatile cannabis terpenes remain intact and your oil reaches its full psychoactive potential.
Proprietary Carbon Filtration
The final step of our CO2 cannabis extraction and refinement process involves a proprietary carbon filtration process to create the purity and clarity unique to our oil products. This process removes unwanted chlorophylls, anthocyanins, water soluble vacuolar pigments, undesirable flavors, and even heavy metals that may reside from soil used in the growing process. The result provides us with pure and translucent cannabis oil concentrates.
Before any of our cannabis oil concentrates hit the shelves, our Quality Assurance Team inspects all aspects of our oil to ensure they meet our standards. Our in-house analytical lab monitors and controls potency and cannabinoid levels throughout the CO2 cannabis extraction process for a superior level of quality assurance in our finished product.
