HIGHLIGHTS 

AVAILABLE NOW: THE CANNABIS EXTRACTION REPORT

The emerging extraction industry is proving to be one of the most active areas of innovation and growth in the cannabis industry. The Cannabis Extraction Report takes a look at this rapidly-growing and diversifying industry, analysing methods of extraction, types of extracts and extract-based products, technology, supply chain, regulations, and the current state of the market.

Extraction is core to making cannabis more mainstream, as well as being a key point of transition for more traditional industries. In particular this is essential reading for the Pharma, CPG, Health, Wellness and Industrial sectors.

The Report features interviews with leading experts in the extraction industry and sponsors of the report, including: Andrew Megahy, Chief Scientific Officer at Always Pure Organics, Benjamin Britton, Founder & CEO at PurePressure, and Joel Sherlock, Chairman & Co-Founder of Vitalis Extraction Technology.
