New Product Launching Soon: Micro Extractor. From farm to table, this infused oil extractor is perfect for full spectrum hemp and other botanicals. Silent solid state Patented technology allows touchless extraction and mixing, in the same dispenser for topical use. Buy hemp, grind, put in dispenser/extractor and you have a finished project ready to use.
Home use unit: $249.00 (includes shipping via USPS). What’s in the box: Induction mixing base (US power cord 110V), extraction jar with pump dispenser, oil filtration unit (in-situ as part of the pump dispenser).
How It Works: Using a carrier oil, induction mixing, and time, the oil in the botanical is pulled out and is attracted to the carrier oil. As a topical oil, this is the holy grail of extraction since it is simultaneously mixed with the oil as it can be applied to the skin. For oregano oil, we recommend the bottom of the feet. For Amla (Gooseberry) we recommend anywhere on the skin. For hemp, topically on the body for aches and pains.

Can I use this to produce commercial topical products ? Yes. This is perfect for DIY small business extractions. You can mix then put into standard Mason jars with dispensers which you can buy from Amazon. We will offer a DIY plans and Amazon links kit shortly.
Is this better than commercial processing ? Yes. From farm to table, you control the extraction, without any unknown processing. If you are buying hemp, buy from a reputable farmer, and confirm they are on the state registered grower list. Request a COA (Certificate of Analysis) to confirm it’s legal, and has all the components for a good quality oil extract. Buy a dried product. If you purchase a wet or freshly harvested product, you’re buying 50 percent water weight. Buy the material buy the pound. Do not buy based on a points system. You should be able to buy quality hemp for $30 or less per pound. You’ll find groups trying to sell smokable hemp for up to $100 a pound. Buy fresh, or a properly dried hemp flower product from last fall. Do not buy any product from the prior year harvest unless it was properly dried and stored.
How efficient is the carrier oil extraction process ? The process varies depending on mixing rate and time, but expect around 80 percent or higher. This method produces a full spectrum high quality craft oil. The best part of a in-situ extraction is that the consumer gets the entire product, and it only gets better with time. 100 percent of the botanical and extract are in the same Mason jar container, which is also the extraction device. The induction base mixer reduces oil infusion time from weeks to a few hours or less.
Why can commercial ethanol processing be bad ? The problem with fly-by-night ethanol processors is that you don’t know what you’re getting. Please see our article on this sketchy processing method. Many unreputable ethanol processors use charcoal filters to filter out chlorophyll (green color and bitter taste). Unfortunately, this also filters out the primary healthy medicinals from the hemp.
Is CO2 processing good ? Yes, it’s probably the best method out there. CO2 extracts command a very high price from anywhere from $60 (250-500 mg) to $150 a gram mixed in with 30 ml (one ounce) of carrier oil. A good quality CO2 extract looks like honey or if it has waxes and lipids, a peanut buttery color and consistency. This method can produce a high quality full spectrum oil if it has a higher pressure (above 1,500 psi) extraction method, or an even better near distillate (with over 85 percent CB D) if run at a lower near supercritical pressure (less than 1,500 psi).
Can the pump in-situ jar filter be reused ? The food-grade stainless steel filtration elements can be put in a dishwasher (or ultrasonic cleaner) and reused. The standard filter element for topical use, should be replaced after a 8 oz extraction (one jar should last months). Replacement filters are available for a few dollars, and sold in multi-packs.
Do you offer discounts for volume purchases for those who want to make a business or resell products ? Yes. For quantity purchases of 100 or more units, we offer a 20 percent discount. Keep in mind you can always do a primary mixing and extraction in the 8 oz or larger Mason jar, then subdivide out into 30 ml (one ounce) bottles.
What sizes of wide mouth Mason jars are there ? Wide mouth Mason jars coming in 8 oz, 12 oz., 16 oz., and 32 oz. sizes. Infinity Supercritical can build a custom multi-jar mixer base, or a larger mixer base version for a 32 oz. size. Under this strategy, you can do multiple extractions, or multiple larger extractions which you can then sub-divide into small 1 oz bottles for retail sales.
Can this be used for other antioxidant botanicals ? Yes. We actually recommend Oregano, Amla (Gooseberry) and other similar botanicals rich in antioxidants, and which are considered superfoods.
Do you offer a large mixing system ? Yes. We offer a bench top mounted SDR (spinning disc reactor) for commercial continuous extraction of oil based extraction (price $49,000). With this system, you will need to remove particulates from the solution using a Fast Filter ($19,000) system, unless you want to bottle the entire solution, and provide the retail bottle in a wide mouth Mason jar with a pump and filter solution. We can sell large quantities of the pump mechanisms with filter. These are for topical (skin application) retail products. We do offer a food grade stainless steel filter system for superfood oil solutions for edibles. Superfood retail products include antioxidant, salad oil dressings, hot sauces, multi-nutrient oil, etc.
