THC/CBD Cannabinoid Extraction System
Sixth Wave is uniquely suited to develop a commercially viable and highly competitive process for CBD and THC purification based on its IXOS® bead MIPs technology. The Company is developing the Affinity™ Extraction Process, an extraction solution specifically designed to extract THC and/or CBD from cannabis/hemp crude for the production of pure THC and CBD compounds. The technology and process will provide a robust, cost effective method to provide high purity THC and CBD for the commercial market.
The availability of pure CBD and THC allows for controlled specialty cannabis extract formulations for different medicinal indications and recreational adult uses. Pure CBD isolate, in particular, is desirable as a means of obtaining the medicinal benefits of CBD without the psychoactive effects of other cannabinoids. Studies have indicated that the majority of CBD products being marketed do not contain the amount of CBD indicated on the label and 20% contain some amount of THC.
