Did you know👉 in addition to manufacturing #distillation equipment (and any other processing equipment lines) Pope also manufactures lab grade dewars? Dewars are used for handling #cryogenic materials like liquid nitrogen. This picture shows some freshly silvered glass dewars in production.

❓ What is the typical purity and yield of CBD isolate when starting from distillate? ⁠

This can vary greatly, but for example, it is typical for a > 85 % purity CBD distillate to become > 99.5% purity CBD in an #isolate, containing from less than 0.01 % down to an undetectable amount of THC. The yield, i.e., the amount of total available #CBD in the #distillate which ends up in the final isolated product, has been found to vary anywhere from 65% to 85% (from 15 to 35% yield loss). Higher quality starting material and higher operator skill will lead to greater yield and purity.⁠
