In the not-too-distant future, cannabis extraction labs will be expected to cater to every consumer's taste, from the budget-conscious newbie to the connoisseur looking for a full-spectrum experience. Labs can future-proof operations by investing in butane hash oil (BHO) and ethanol extraction technology to keep up with demand.
Maximize Profitability Through BHO and Ethanol Extraction
For solvent-based extraction, BHO and Ethanol have emerged as the best methods to process most all types of cannabis biomass, from high-quality single-strain nugs to trim.
Butane hash oil (BHO) extractions are one of the most efficient methods of producing cannabis concentrates. While this extraction method can produce a high-terpene full-spectrum extract better than any other solvent, the SOPs used can elevate the process to an art form.
The battle of the titans: ethanol extraction vs. BHO extraction vs. CO2 extraction. Which one produces the best cannabis oil? Which one is the best and most cost-effective method for cannabis producers? In short, it depends.
Butane hash oil (BHO) of the highest order is vacuum purged for better taste and aroma. As part of an optimized post-processing workflow, a vacuum purge removes all of the excess solvents, in this case, butane and/or propane, to deliver an oil worthy of medicinal or recreational use.
Hydrocarbons are the ultimate solvent in the extract market for creating a high-quality concentrate product. Strong enough to pull massive amounts of cannabinoids from any quality cannabis and hemp biomass and gentle enough to keep the sensitive terpenes intact in the end product.
Butane hash oil (BHO), or hydrocarbon extraction, is the MVP of the concentrate game. Everyone from medical marijuana patients to recreational consumers to extraction technicians, overwhelmingly, prefer cannabis concentrates made using light hydrocarbons such as butane and propane.
Light hydrocarbon solvents (butane and propane) have been the powerful, nonpolar compounds favored by the upper echelon of artisan edible makers.
From the colorful, sugar-frosted gummies to the rich and decadent fudge brownies cheekily laced with cannabinoids, these infused edibles are used for their therapeutic, and often, intoxicating effects.
For home amateurs, an easy ISO quick-wash can produce a rudimentary and solvent-free extract without blowing up the house. For commercial extraction, butane and propane extraction for concentrates provide the highest possible quality, purity, and throughput.
Butane honey oil is the golden and resinous sap that contains a treasure trove of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other active compounds ready to give concentrate users the relief they need. Also known as butane hash oil, butane honey oil is the pinnacle of marijuana extracts in terms of potency, flavor, aroma, purity, and safety.
In today’s rapidly expanding world of concentrates, it’s hard to keep track of all the available information about exciting new extract forms. While BHO extraction was popularized in the late 1990s, new technologies and techniques have enabled extraction technicians to produce even more flavorful and potent extracts than ever before.
In the world of cannabis extraction, light hydrocarbon extraction is the gold standard for producing everything from cannabinoid distillates to full-spectrum concentrates featuring a range of therapeutic cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other compounds. Butane and propane, in particular, are the go-to solvents used to separate cannabis resin from the rest of the plant matter.
