No doubt you have heard about CBD Oil. CBD stands for Cannabidiol and is an extract of the hemp plant which does not contain the “buzz”-inducing “high” associated with THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol. THC is the main psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis.

Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive. CBD oil is typically used for health-related reasons, rather than for recreational purposes. CBD oil is an increasingly popular natural remedy used for conditions such as for pain relief, reduction in anxiety and depression, fibromyalgia, arthritis, diabetes, treating side effects of cancer treatments, and a variety of other conditions. According to Forbes, The Hemp Business Journal estimated that the CBD market will grow to a $2.1 billion market in consumer sales by 2020. CBD oil is also being marketed for man’s best friend, canines.

Using Filter Presses to Extract CBD Oil from Hemp

Naturally, your filter press will need to be designed to your exacting specifications and Micronics can help. This may typically involve a stainless steel manifold and tri-clamp fittings (food-grade) for easy disassembly and reassembly. We offer expandable press models so that as your business grows, we can easily support your added throughput.

Micronics’ 470mm, 630mm, and 800mm filter presses are all reliable, safe, and easy to operate and maintain.
