Pesticide Removal From Cannabis and Hemp

Today, cannabis and hemp farmers are required to follow strict regulations on the use of pesticides. Regardless, cannabis and hemp extracts are often found to be contaminated with pesticides, leading to serious issues for manufacturers including profit loss. Since the 1960s, U.S. Silica's Florisil has been established as an industry standard for effective pesticide adsorption from agricultural, environmental and other analytical samples. Florisil is excellent for pesticide removal from cannabis extracts. Recent case studies demonstrate Florisil's performance:

Case Study 1:
A contaminated cannabis extract (120.8 ppm of pesticides) was cleaned using Florisil PR. (125 g of cannabis extract was dissolved in an alkane, applied to a column of Florisil PR (1 kg), and eluted with additional alkane.)

Case Study 2:
A hemp extract was spiked with 53 regulated pesticides (>300 ppm). This spiked extract was cleaned using Florisil PR. (4 g of hemp extract dissolved in hexane was applied to a 40 g column of Florisil PR. The valuable components were eluted with hexane, and finally the pesticides were eluted with methanol for analysis.)
