About the talk

Methods and protocol change all the time. But what’s the current stance on extraction methods? CO2, ethanol, butane, propane... What are the pros and cons of each? Of course, cleanliness, safety, and eciency are always important to talk about, however, many things change, and you never know when a method will outweigh another with regards to sustainability, eciency, or something else entirely. Let’s see if we can take a crack at guessing the cards before the hand is played.

On the scientific side. You're actually we're actually talking about concentration. But anytime we put concentration up there. We spend the next ten minutes of telling why we consider concentrations out of extraction slice 5 minutes. Doing that. It's also the mode of all the different solvents that are available. So on my side, I keep preaching that when people ask me what the best extraction is the best extraction started out as a formulation Centric. So we have a panelist that have experience across all the different solvents and I've seen over the industry from the

2013 moving into a where everyone had their they're lane they stayed in their Lane and they had big walls over there Lane. No butane is the only way to do it CO2 is the only way to do it. Ethanol is the only way to end its and now I'm seeing if you get 2019 they're crossing over Lanes the same case if there's a lot of product out there, there's a lot of pluses in and minuses. So it's really you start formulation Centric and you start off of what you're trying to make for your patient or for your customer and then you back up to what ingredients you need to make those and what broadband of

ingredients you're needing to do that with and then from there. Can you move towards the economics you move towards three things that I've always said you get the speed you get scale and you get slacktivism pick 2. I'm not getting all three going to be really hard to get all three and then the fourth one you add to the tip of the pyramid that I like that and that is Spin and I may have to spend into a dollar design because it's my own work. So you have fees like activity scale and then spin what it what are you trying to do? And so we have the number of panelist year
