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.
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.
Cannabis consumers are increasingly getting hip to the science and production methods of their favorite products. They are not just looking for the highest THC possible anymore. Cannabidiol (CBD), minor cannabinoids, terpenes, and other components are more in-demand than ever.
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.
Ethanol has a long history of extracting oil from plant materials for therapeutic use. In today’s highly competitive marijuana extraction sector, extraction artists have a wide range of extraction solvents to choose from such as carbon dioxide, light hydrocarbons (propane and butane), and ethanol. These solvents are used to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes from the cannabis or hemp resin.
