    • Intro to Extraction with Sub and Supercritical Fluids
      In this video segment, Eric Kawka gives an introduction to extraction regarding sub- and supercritical fluids. Eric's background is in supercritical fluid extraction and supercritical fluid chromatography.
    • Appreciating the Complexity of Cannabis Sativa
      In this video segment, Eric Kawka talks about appreciating the complexity of cannabis sativa. Within cannabis there are two compounds that are vital, terpenes and cannabinoids. There are more than 80 different cannabinoids. Both terpenes and cannabinoids interact with our endocannabinoid system with over 300 hundred receptors.
    • Extracting Cannabis is Like Brewing a Fine Cup of Java
      In this video segment, Eric Kawka shows how extracting cannabis is similar to brewing a cup of coffee. Two compounds of similar properties with respect to polarity will be soluble together. Water, which is polar, and oil, which is non-polar, will not mix together. But like coffee, cannabis must start with the proper cultivar.
    • Key Parameters for Process Control
      In this video segment, Eric Kawka looks into the key parameters for process control. Thermodynamics is one of the critical parameters that pertains to pressure and temperature.
    • Is Supercritical CO2 Just a Marketing Term?
      In this video segment, Eric Kawka answers the question, is supercritical CO2 just a marketing term? A supercritical fluid is a fluid brought to a temperature and pressure higher than its critical point, where physical and chemical properties change.
    • Terpenes and Cannabinoids are Synthesized and Stored in Trichomes
      In this video segment, Eric Kawka covers how terpenes and cannabinoids are synthesized and stored in trichomes. Trichomes dictate what the end product is with extraction. In the SC-CO2 efficiency curve, there are two sections that dictate things, the mechanical region and the diffusion limited region.
    • Molecular Structure of Cannabinoids
      In this video segment, Eric Kawka dissects the molecular structure of cannabinoids. Terpenes and cannabinoids create an entourage effect, while myrcene has an analgesic effect. Terpenes also go through isomerization, oxidation, dehydration, polymerization, and thermal rearrangements.
