Flake ice is often used when processing hemp. In fact, many hemp processing plants use flake ice to help them in the extraction process. Ice water extraction is a tried and true method for extracting pure and pristine cannabis.
Flake ice is also remarkably cost-effective to produce. Flake ice uses less energy to produce the ice needed to effectively store and cool hemp plants and extract CBD. It only requires 1.3 tons of refrigeration per ton of ice, making it an economical choice for many in the CBD industry.

Flake Ice When Extracting CBD
During the agitation process, the cannabinoids in the trichomes separate out and fall to the bottom. Trichomes are the part of the plant that carries the most THC and CBD. They are responsible for the health properties and benefits of CBD. The process of ice water extraction works because these trichomes are denser than the water they are in. However, it is important not to damage the plant while trying to separate it.

CBD is one of hundreds of cannabinoids that exist in the Cannabis sativa species. These natural compounds are unique because of the way they interact with our bodies, and CBD is no exception to the rule. CBD’s function as a cannabinoid is diverse, but one of the main reasons it is so accessible is due to its non-psychotropic characteristics and excellent safety profile.
