Making an Extract, from Planting to Bottling PDF Print E-mail

As soon as they are picked, our precious green allies are immediately sent to the extraction room to ensure that not a single drop of their precious vibrancy is lost.pressage

That is when processing begins. We draw on three decades of herbal extraction experience and a solid Western herbalism tradition to help us choose the appropriate herb/solvent ratio, the cut, brewing type, pressing method, alcohol concentration, level of filtration, etc. We have research, analysis and experimentation protocols in place to continue validating our knowledge, refining our methods and maximizing the potency and stability of our extracts.
While our researchers attend to their work, the herbs, immersed in their assigned solvent, permutate and transform during a full lunar cycle.

When the maceration period is over, we move on to the pressing room. At this point, the herbs and solvent have merged, becoming an extract, which is
then turned into a tincture (hydroalcohol), glycerite (vegetable glycerine) or macerated oil (olive oil). The preparation is placed in a hydraulic press and pressure- filtered to remove any suspended particles. The liquid is decanted one last time before we check the quality, colour, taste, stability and turbidity. Bottling is the final step. It is thanks to the watchful eyes of our herbalists, their extensive experience, vigilance and the meticulousness with which they carry out their tasks that we are able to produce clear, superior-quality and consistent extracts.produit-fini

While samples are sent to the laboratory for analysis, the residues from the pressing process head to the garden where they are composted and eventually returned to the earth that took such good care of them. Throughout this adventure, despite the large amount of herbs that pass through their hands, our herbalists put their hearts and souls into making extracts that are efficient, vibrant, stable and powerful.
