According to researchers, all it may take is an espresso machine to be able to extract cannabis ingredients in under sixty seconds.
A recent experiment detailed in a manuscript that is due to be published in The International Journal of Pure and Applied Analytical Chemistry found out that this is possible.
As part of an experiment, the team wanted to see if espresso-based extraction, could be applied to the drug marijuana.
The researchers had used a Nespresso Essenza Manual XN2003 machine, which goes for just a few hundred on eBay.
The researchers had wrote, “The use of hard cap espresso machines has been recently proposed for analytical extractions due to its easy use, speed, availability and low price, providing efficient extraction of organic compounds from solid samples in few seconds.”
“It has been evidenced that the developed method for the major cannabinoids extraction is a really encouraging example of the wide range of possibilities that a conventional and low cost hard cap espresso assisted extraction could offer in analytical laboratories,” the study said.
“The quantitative extraction of THC, CBD and CBN from buds, leaves and stems has been achieved in a single and fast extraction of 40 seconds.”
