The Institute of Extraction Technology packs its first year with significant changes expected to maximize the time of attendees.

The cannabis and cannabinoid extraction industry continues to be one of the fastest growing sectors. Offering those interested promising careers as Extraction Technicians, Extraction Specialists, and Extraction Manager. With more technology out now than ever before, it’s crucial to get proper training and education as more physics and chemistry are involved in the extraction process. “People typically feel that chemistry is too hard for them to understand.
