Hemp extraction to mushroom extraction?
…can cannabis equipment be used for mushroom extraction?
Psilocybin and cannabis are polar opposites – literally. Cannabinoid molecules are nonpolar, while psilocybin is… because cannabinoids are nonpolar molecules, typically extracted through CO2, hydrocarbon, butane or ethanol, that equipment wouldn’t suffice to extract a polar molecule, like psilocybin. There are some exceptions, however… natural extraction methods of psilocybin are significantly less [costly] than synthetic alternatives… Ray believes that cannabis growers could create a sustainable cycle between… two compounds. “…there’s a whole ecosystem that can be created. You can take one room and dump the CO2 from your mushrooms into your grow. That way, you’re not using propane burners or [additional] CO2, you’re just using growing life to create your CO2.”
