Did You Know..Ion exchange helps to purify cannabis by extracting the specific cannabinoid delivering targeted health benefits.
With over 100 different cannabinoid molecules found in cannabis, it is important to separate the ones with medicinal properties such as CBD from the psychoactive or harmful ones such as THC
Fine mesh adsorbent resins, also called reversed phase resins, are a very effective way to purify many of these cannabinoids into their pure forms where some specific cannabinoids help in suppressing appetites, while others target pain receptors or can act as anti-cancer agents or fight epilepsy and multiple sclerosis, without the side effects of addiction or psychotropic behavior.
While most medicinal marijuana products of cannabis have focused on THC and CBD, the fine mesh adsorbent resins proved to be an effective way to minimize the amount of THC and enrich the CBD concentration where it is “safe” to sell over the counter in many of the US states. As more health benefits are discovered each year with the dozens of cannabinoids being studied, finer separations will be needed with Purolite’s fine mesh reverse phase resin offering.
