Embark Health Inc. has secured a 40,000 square foot facility minutes from downtown Vancouver.
In addition to being the production hub and lab for Embark’s cannabis extraction, this facilities’ proposed design to include quality assurance and formulations labs.
Exceptional Quality + Purity
We select growers and suppliers of exceptional quality. Our extraction process involves the removal of undesirable compounds, while preserving the active terpenes and cannabinoids of the original plant. Embark’s state of the art facility will be able to provide exceptional quality and superior purity with the following extraction methods in its quiver of capabilities: Ultrasonic Cryo Ethanol, CO2, Whistler Technologies Ice Water, Steam Vac Distillation, Hydrocarbon and Rosin Press.
Embark will be the only company producing CO2 Isolate and one of several producing CO2 Shatter, HTE and Crumble.
The Quiver of Capabilities
ULTRASONIC CRYO ETHANOL
Produces full spectrum oil which can then be run through molecular distillation and processed into distillate for THC or CBD distillate or be further processed into isolated, pure cannabinoids (CBD). In the Embark lab we have the capacity of 7500 lbs per day, input biomass 95% plus extraction efficiency, 500L per hour or solvent recovery, less than 2% ethanol left in biomass implementing the largest turn key system available.
CO2 EXTRACTION METHODS
Produces oils that can be processed in an abundance of textures: HTE, Shatter, Isolate, Wax, Sap, Pen Oil, Dust, Crumble. Advanced extraction allows Fractional isolation of cannabinoids, separating cannabinoids from terpene oils, and fractional Isolation of isotopes of cannabinoids. Embark Methods: Super Critical CO2 (SFE), Subcritical CO2 (SBE), Expanded Carbon Hybrid (CXE), Super Fluid Chromatography (SFC).
ICE WATER EXTRACTION
Trichome Isolation Centre: the largest ice hash and dry sift toll processing facility with the largest water hash extraction system in Canada.
STEAM VAC DISTILLATION
Unique access to terpene profiles, offers increased purity: clean, unadulterated terpene extraction, gentler form of extraction.
Our hydrocarbon extraction methods involve the use of propane and/or butane as the solvent to extract the concentrate immediately following harvest of flowers.
This cold extraction method leaves little or no hydrocarbon residue when properly utilized. At the end of the extraction process, the resulting clean extract contains very high levels of cannabinoids and terpenes. The highly concentrated extract is then used to create products such as HTE high terpene extract, diamonds, shatter and live resin oils.
Extraction of terpene rich cannabinoids via heat and pressure to make a premium solventless oil for multi-purpose use, efficient, fully automated systems.
Tricrome isolation: mechanically separated glandular trichome heads, aka dry sift or hash provide full spectrum flavour, with minimal processing. Low temp ultrasound sieving grades glands into favourite gland sizes (73, 90,120um) while Electostatic separation cleans contaminate from dry sift.
Unprecedented Volume: State-of-the-art facility and with superior technology and equipment.
All-new equipment enables large scale extraction processing without sacrificing efficiency. Experienced industry operators will manage a fully automated system, further ensuring efficiency.
Integrated data collection with flow and turbidity meters will measure extraction yield in real time.
The Embark Lab will enable development of new and exciting products and brand extensions for consumers.
We take a human centered approach to design and development throughout every aspect of our business.
