« We believe this alcohol extraction machine is the best extraction equipment on the market today, which allows us to be able to process large amounts of cannabis flower into highly pure concentrates from day one, » says Bill Gildea, CEO of Future Farm. « This equipment will immediately allow for high-volume and highly pure extraction production. With this purchase, Future Farm is now formalizing the marketing plan to include its own brand, as well as offering contract manufacturer services for other brands and cultivators across the state of California. »
Cannabis concentrates and edibles are the largest and fastest growing segments of the cannabis market, which many experts believe will overtake cannabis whole flower sales by 2020. The market for cannabis concentrates is booming because they are used to make edibles, topical ointments, capsules and other packaged products that require a more professional extraction. As the recreational industry gets underway in California, many in the concentrates niche believe it’s going to continue to explode in popularity.
« We are excited to begin creating unique extraction products, that are very high in quality as defined through a full complement of technical laboratory analysis, » says John Sweeney, Future Farm’s COO. « We will make data driven decisions that guide us, in further refining our processes to maintain the very best cannabinoid, flavonoid and terpene profiles. The chosen method of extraction is safe, non-pressurized, reliable, and easy to use. The low temperatures and short residence times helps to preserve all of the essential oils, and the consistency of operations including temperature, vacuum, and feed rates make it an ideal solution for scaling up. »
