Title
(EN) COMPOUND EXTRACTION FROM PLANT BASED MATERIAL UTILIZING TEREPENE SATURANT
Abstract
(EN)

A method for extracting compounds from plant material utilizing terpenes as a solvent is described. The invention includes the excitation of the plant material and terpene solvent with microwave, ultrasound, heat input, and physical agitation or combinations thereof. The invention particularly covers the process as it relates to the extraction of THC and CBD and their derivatives from cannabis and hemp for the use in products for medical and recreational use. The combinations of terpene saturant, plant material strain and process variables can be tuned in order to dial in the final resultant product for several variables including but not limited to terpene content, THC or CBD potency, ratios of THC or CBD and their derivatives, or flavor profile.
