PASO ROBLES, Calif., Aug. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Greenbelt Resources Corporation (OTC: GRCO) has announced that its bioethanol will be tested for potential use by Natures Comfort Meds Biotechnology (NCM Biotechnology) during its patented CBD (aka canibidiol) extraction process. The bioethanol being used is produced from local brewery waste, and NCM Biotechnology selected Greenbelt for testing because its bioethanol is a greener, cleaner and more sustainable bioproduct.
According to NCM Biotechnology, its CBD extraction process removes cannabinoids from plant material in higher levels than other methods. The company's CBD extraction process uses ethanol to convert the cannabinoids into liquid form, or oil. A recent study has shown that using ethanol as a solvent during the CBD extraction process increases the cannabinoid levels and therapeutic attributes. NCM's cannabinoid-based product is currently being tested in the treatment of respiratory diseases such as asthma or COPD.
Greenbelt CEO Darren Eng anticipates that their bioethanol will perform well during the testing phase and foresees its ethanol being used successfully in other CBD extraction processes.
Puration Inc. (OTC:PURA) has also selected Greenbelt's bioethanol for testing in its patented CBD extraction process for potential use.
