1. The cannabis plant contains upwards of 80 known cannabinoids
. These are all very similar chemically. Crude extraction methods are unable to make the distinction between these cannabinoids. These methods are analogous to using a fishing net, some of the desirable products are caught but there is no specification.
2. The organic solvents used are flammable and in some cases toxic and carcinogenic. Hexane is thought to be toxic to the nervous system and skin; prolonged use can produce target organ damage. Symptoms of butane overexposure include dizziness, headaches, nausea, loss of consciousness and cessation of breathing.
Medical Cannabis Clinic Australia uses cannabinoids separated using carbon dioxide, the safest and most stable means of extraction. In this separation process, carbon dioxide is pressurised and heated until it reaches its ‘supercritical phase’. In this state the solvent properties of CO2 can be manipulated to extract a particular group of cannabinoids selectively. The final stage of purification utilises a chromatographic process that removes all unwanted cannabinoids and compounds.
Medical Cannabis Clinic Australia is committed to producing the highest quality cannabinoid pharmaceuticals. The cannabinoids are tested using state of the art analytical laboratories for purity and biological contamination.
MCCA engages Botanists, Engineers, Pharmacists and Doctors to ensure the purest and safest cannabinoid therapy. Our products are a culmination of the latest research and development in the field and customised to satisfy the needs of individual patients.
