What Is Purification?


The purification process reduces or removes unwanted constituents or foreign substances to help make a purer ingredient that meets your needs. 

  • Reduce or remove pesticides—those that the process is capable of removing; specific requests to be qualified
  • Reduce or remove tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
  • Reduce non-essential components in the crude—such as fats, lipids, waxes, terpenes, chlorophylls, etc.
  • Remediate solvents—from pre-existing extraction processing performed elsewhere

Food-Grade Purification


PHCO₂™ provides a food-grade purification service using a proprietary CO2 process. The CO2 conditions include highly calibrated parameters of pressure, temperature, time, etc. Our founder, Val Krukonis, co-wrote the book on supercritical fluid extraction.


These are not trivial points—CO2 process and extraction it is what the PHCO₂™ team excels at. We’ve earned the reputation as innovators of a quality, reliable extraction process that yields consistent, superior purification, and has the ability to capture relevant minors in the whole plant hemp extract.
