Making a Profit from Botanical Oil Extraction

PDF Download: 20170822-infinity-supercritical-co2-extraction-profit-review

Introduction: The market segment which is making money right now is oil extraction and concentrates. This might be cannabis oil (vape pens), hemp oil (CBDs), or in the nutraceuticals industry, phenols and metabolites. The later is mainly used in the supplement industry in tablet, capsule, and concentrate form (tincture – used to drop into tea, flavor drinks, etc.).

Oil extraction is a value-added segment of the industry, which is more profitable than cultivation, due to the limited number of extractors. Lots of cultivators and large supply, drive prices down. Limited extractors, and small supply, drive prices up.

Research: The best strategy is to research and study the area you want to focus on, and which industry and consumer to target. If you focus on a niche market, you will have better results, than if you do what everyone else does.

Branding: Having your own brand will identify your product with consistency. It allows the consumer to quickly chose your product, and refer your product to others. Word of mouth is sometimes the best advertising, and best of all it’s free.

Steps to Profit

 

Step 1: Identify your botanical, product, and market. What product do you want to sell, and who is going to buy it ?

Step 2: Identify attributes to your product, and benefits of the botanical. Choose a brand name.

Step 3: Establish a botanical supplier and purity. Have a certified lab test your botanical sample, and indicate pesticide free, and available oil. Negotiate your best price on the botanicals, and insist on regular sample testing, and tracking from growth, harvest, and final delivery.

Step 4: Flavinoids. Do you want your brand product to have flavor ? Botanicals are flavored by compounds called terpenes, which can be removed in the extraction process. They can even be removed, and replaced, with a different flavor (such as removing a hops taste or smell, with vanilla).

Step 5: Establish your market network. This may include direct-to-customer sales (via a website or sales agents), for non-regulated items Amazon, or through retail organizations like dispensaries.

Step 6: Source and assemble your extraction process, including the extraction equipment and any post-processing equipment needed to put the oil or concentrate into a consumer ready format (i.e. vape pens, tincture, etc.). Get competitive quotes on equipment, and go see it in operation before you buy.

Step 7: Develop a comprehensive website, which includes ordering direct, publications on the product, including any scientific research. For fast set-up, use WordPress.

Step 8: Test run your production line, and provide free samples for a limited time.

Step 9: Price your product. A brand name will command a higher price than a generic product. A niche market will also bring higher prices. Do you want a one-time sale, or offer a subscription ?

Step 10: Return on Investment feedback. Set a loop in the chain of supply and sales that allows you to capture and analyze metrics of the cost of goods versus your profit. Adjust your supplier price, and sale price accordingly.

Summary: While this is not a comprehensive list of everything that needs to be done, this will get you on the right path. These steps are merely guidelines, that can get you on the road to profit. You may need to re-number the list, according to your priority and product development. Redefining markets, customers, and profits is a dynamic strategy, since none of those factors are static. Over time, you need to constantly innovate new ways to market and develop your product for a savvy consumer.

Infinity Supercritical Botanical Oil Extraction Machine Which Uses CO2 as the Solvent

Heisenberg Honey uses Infinity Supercritical CO2 Extraction System to Produce some of the Best Products on the Market in Southern California

Located in Southern California, Heisenberg Honey produces a CBD Infused Oil and Tincture, and concentrates for gourmet edible candy, using organic ingredients. The group uses a Infinity Supercritical CO2 10L extraction system, which runs on almost a daily basis. The system produces a superior extract, which is then winterized and distilled into a pure concentrate, which is then used in medicinal products.

Customers say it’s some of the best extract they’ve had. And that’s a result of a experienced professional running a great extraction machine.

From Todd at Heisenberg, “What’s unique about our lab is that is it run by licensed chemists who know exactly what they are doing. We do not use any kind of Butane and do not make BHO as Butane extraction can be very toxic as it is from petroleum derivatives. Instead we only use CO2 for our extraction process SFE (supercritical CO2 fluid extraction) which is a “green solvent” and safe for consumption. We want to make sure that everything that leaves our lab is 100 percent safe for the consumer to use. This is why we also have our own testing lab to make sure that all product is tested before it goes into our extractor for pesticides or toxins. The product is also tested after processing for potency so you will know exact dosages.”

Todd himself has about six years of organic chemistry, and likes how the Infinity Supercritical machine works. And the results are outstanding. Todd has built up a experience and knowledge-base on the system so that the CO2 pump rarely has to be cleaned. Todd likes the simplicity of the machine and that it is semi-automated. “The fully automated extraction machines tend to blow out all the CO2 when there is any issue during the extraction cycle, which can result in large CO2 supply costs, not to mention software updates. With a semi-automated system, you can set the pressure and temperature zones, and they will automatically maintain those settings by use of feedback sensors, which results in some great extraction results,” Todd said.

“If you make a effort to run the machine properly, and and focus on collection of oil instead of blasting through the closed-loop cycle, you don’t have to clean the pump,” Todd commented. Todd has his botanicals tested for both pesticides and total oil content. That insures that the botanicals are organic (pesticide free) before processing, and knowing the oil content helps to determine the amount of crude oil extract that will be  produced. “Typically, we expect about 5 percent oil content from trim, ” Todd said. “After the post processing and concentrated distillation (polishing), you can expect to lose about 20 percent of the total crude oil extract from waxes, which make the concentrate even more pure, clear, and produces a wonderful aroma (terpene rich oil).”

The Infinity Supercritical CO2 Botanical Extraction System is Certified in California, for use in the Cannabis Industry: The system is completely silent in operation, and has several energy saving features which make cost of operation low, and low demands on a electrical system.

Todd is also offering classes on post processing, including winterizing,  distillation, and the nuances of licensed cannabis extraction for the Los Angeles, and Southern California region. His experience in the industry can help new entries into the cannabis space, which will go recreational legal in 2018.
