Phyto Extractions(TM) - Hydrocarbon Extraction Now Producing Shatter for Canadian Market

·4 min read

LANGLEY, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 21, 2021 / Phyto Extractions Inc. (formerly, Adastra Labs Holdings Ltd.) (CSE:XTRX) (Frankfurt:D2EP) ("Phyto Extractions™" or the "Company) is pleased to announce that it is now producing cannabis shatter products for the Canadian market after wholly-owned subsidiary Adastra Labs Inc.'s commissioning of new hydrocarbon extraction equipment ahead of schedule.

With the arrival of the ExtractionTek Solutions MeP XT70 system, a high-performance hydrocarbon extractor, the team at Phyto Extractions can now process over 400 KG per day of cannabis biomass into a variety of hydrocarbon cannabis concentrate products. Focused on shatter production currently, this translates into over 50kg of high-quality product output per day.

Phyto Extractions™ has launched three new shatter cannabis products: Pink Kush, Blue Gorilla OG, and D. Bubba that will serve the over 9 million Canadians currently in the cannabis market with its one-gram offerings. The Company's increasing market share in the disposable vape, vape cartridge, and live resin markets, strengthens the brand's launch of its new flagship 'shatter' product line.

With relatively few players in the niche of shatter product space in Canada, this market expansion represents a significant opportunity given the forecasted growth of the Cannabis extract market.

Phyto Extractions™ growth in cannabis market shares

The current cannabis extract market has seen a huge boom in sales from the past year, in which demands for cannabis extracts are rising steadily. Canadian cannabis extract sales observed an exponential 315% growth rate for the past two years, from 320,201 non-medical sales in Oct. 2019 to 1,328,769 sales in Oct. 2020, and over 200% sales growth rate including all medical and non-medical sales. Rising demand for cannabis extract products requires reasonable supplies from producers for cannabis enthusiasts.

As a leading producer of cannabis extracts, Phyto Extractions™ continues to innovate and adopt trusted extraction methods, like hydrocarbon, to bring Canadians quality cannabis products.

Hydrocarbon extraction is the most popular cannabis extraction method used to extract tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) from cannabis plants. Usage of hydrocarbons like propane or butane is heavily involved in the extraction process. One of the popular hydrocarbon extractors that uses this method is the ExtractionTek Solutions MeP XT70 system, which is the current system in use at the Company.
