Nextleaf also noted that the pricing and value of the deal are based upon the volume of distillate produced by Nextleaf Labs from the client's cannabis biomass. The extraction services are paid in cash and are based on a minimum of 1,000 kilograms of dried marijuana per service order.

"We are thrilled to add another strong LP to our Commercial Partners Program,” said Nextleaf CFO Charles Ackerman in a statement. “OILS will supply high purity cannabis distillate to help support our partner's cannabis 2.0 strategy nationally.”

As for the new patent, Nextleaf said the process describes a method of extracting cannabinoids from cannabis biomass in a non-flammable and inexpensive co-solvent system using a flow-through ultrasonic extraction system.

"This technology has the potential to differentiate from the established extraction methods through the use of an innovative continuously-fed cannabinoid extraction system," said David Novitski, co-author of the patent. "The ability to continuously extract THC from biomass is a gamechanger in the realm of extraction."

Nextleaf added that the new patent is the latest example of its commitment toward the development of new technologies that result in high-quality and low-cost distillate products.
