The Valens Company Publishes Article in Health Europa’s Medical Cannabis Network
The Valens Company has published an article in Health Europa’s Medical Cannabis Network, Issue 3. The article focuses on creating market-leading cannabis-infused products for Europe.
Significant opportunities lie ahead in this emerging market. The piece highlights why the future of the industry is in value-added extracts and cannabis-infused consumer packaged goods produced using advanced extraction and formulation techniques.
The Five Key Types of Cannabis Extraction
The Valens Company is one of the few companies in the world that can facilitate five extraction techniques using customized and proprietary methods and technology. The extraction methods include: Supercritical and subcritical CO2, Ethanol, Hydrocarbon, Solventless, and Terpene extraction.
Collecting Cannabinoids & Targeting Terpenes
The key to producing high quality extracts is in the development and optimisation of extraction and processing methods that target desired compounds (like cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids) and leave behind unwanted components (like chlorophylls, lipids and sugars).
There is currently a lack of standardization in cannabis testing methods, which risks allowing potentially contaminated or improperly processed products into the market. Every batch of extract and cannabis-infused product processed by The Valens Company is tested for purity and safety.
Emulsion & Infused Beverages
The unique, industry-leading combination of The Valens Company and proprietary SōRSE by Valens emulsion technology delivers water-soluble cannabinoids with consistent, accurate dosing to the last drop. This amounts to better bio-availability and a superior cannabis-infused product experience, providing European companies with the opportunity to create an exciting new beverage product category.
