Hot off its successful IPO, The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TGODF) has been granted a supplemental license from Health Canada for the production of cannabis oils. Extracts have become a fast-growing part of the cannabis industry as consumers have opted towards the convenience of vape pens.
TGOD produces its cannabis oil using a supercritical CO2 extraction system and is capable of processing up to 6,600 kg/year into ultra-pure, environmentally friendly, organic cannabis oils. The company said that this process is free of toxic solvents and does not require any winterization protocol.
“This license is instrumental in driving our research & development forward through product innovation, the discovery of novel traits, and expanding our intellectual property portfolio. With over 125 years of consumer packaged goods experience, TGOD is well-positioned to be the world leader in the organic cannabis industry, providing a range of safe, consistent, high-quality organic products,” said Robert Anderson, TGOD’s Co-Chairman and CEO.
TGOD also said that it is giving concentrate makers control over the process provides access to cannabinoids within the plant in addition to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). The company stated that the result of this specialized extraction process is a precisely concentrated, aromatic golden-brown oil that is as close to the original plant composition as can be achieved.
“Our oils will be as close to the original plant as possible, including terpene profiles to realize entourage effects. Our process is easily customizable to create full-spectrum strain-specific oils, as well as oils of varying cannabinoid and terpene concentrations,” said Anderson.
TGOD’s laboratory was built to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) specifications, and work is currently underway for European Union GMP certification. Patrick Baker, the Extraction Technician, will be heading up the Company’s extraction facility. Mr. Baker has a B.Sc. Biology and Chemistry (Honours) with an emphasis on radiochemistry, and synthetic organic chemistry.
