In yet another sign that the cannabis industry is going mainstream, marijuana extraction expert and Evolab CEO Alex Cahoj will give a presentation at the American Chemical Society’s 249th Annual National Meeting on Monday, March 23, evolab announced on Monday. ACS is the world’s largest scientific society.
The ACS invited Alex to educate their membership on his methods, bringing together an old-line, mainstream science society and a cutting-edge cannabis producer.
Evolab is a pioneer in the use of chromatography and CO2 to produce pharmaceutical-grade cannabis extracts. Cahoj, who has overseen more than 2,000 cannabis extractions, has been invited to give a presentation titled “Safety and Health Standards of Cannabis Extractions with an Emphasis on CO2.”
“People have been concentrating cannabis for thousands of years,” said Alex Cahoj, founder and CEO of evolab. “We’re building on that tradition using the latest technology.
"Unfortunately, not all of the new methods in use today are safe – for workers, consumers or the environment," Cahoj said. "At my company we are committed to producing cannabis extracts that are pure, raw and potent – in a manner that is completely integral – using only CO2.
"We never use hydrocarbons like butane or additives and cutting agents," Cahoj said. "We’re dedicated to developing healthier, more efficient technology for extracting cannabis – and I’m grateful that a prestigious scientific organization like the American Chemical Society is interested in learning about our methods.”
