The SCB-15 THC Remediation System is very flexible.  It can remediate all sorts of starting materials


The remediation system was developed CBD in mind.  When CBG became popular, parameters were optimized for CBG rich extracts and distillates.  Now you can make CBD and CBG oils. that arelow THC and non-detect THC .

Winterized vs Non-Winterized Crude Extract

Crude extract does not need to be winterized.   The SCB-15 can handle both winterized and non-winterized crude extracts. The final use of the remediated product will determine whether the crude extract should be winterized or not.

Decarbed vs Non-Decarbed Crude Extract

The SCB-15 doesn’t care if the crude extract is decarbed on non-decarbed.  The heat of the remediation process will naturally decarb any CBD-a, CBG-a or THC-a present along with the acid form of any minor cannabinoids.   No need for a separate decarbing step.

CBD and CBG distillate can be remediated.  Just keep in mind that distillate will darken during the remediation process.

Mother Liquor

Mother liquor from making isolate is rich in CBD that did not crystalize but also is high in THC.  Turns out that it remediates great, allowing the valuable CBD to be recovered and THC removed.
