Extracting cannabis is something that has significantly become more popular in the cannabis industry. It provides a whole new way to create quality products from cannabis like oil. Trust me smoking marijuana buds won’t go out of style as it provides an easy way to enjoy a high from the THC but many cannabis and marijuana enthusiasts have the desire to try out new things and find new ways to be able to enjoy THC and marijuana. These days BHO Extractors have become very popular since people can buy them and gather a few materials and be able to create their own butane hash oil at home to enjoy.
There are also other ways to be able to extract cannabis and this variety has actually stirred up an argument as to which method is the best one to use. Well basically all these different methods (water, CO2, alcohol, butane) do the same thing as help one really remove the oil from the plant materials. The differences lie in the solvents that are used to remove the oil form the plant itself and this can result in differences in the quality of the oil made. So today, we are going to take a closer look into those different methods and try to see which one would be the best.
1.) Oil Extraction with Hydrocarbons – Cannabis oil extraction with hydrocarbons is basically just BHO extraction as butane is a hydrocarbon. Due to its popularity, many new companies in the cannabis industry are adapting their machinery to use butane in their oil extractions. Businesses have also gone to sell BHO Extractors which one can use at home to extract the oil by himself.
2.) Oil Extraction with Water – In this extraction method, the plant material is dried or frozen and is put into a mixture of cold water and ice. Once in this mixture, the marijuana will be mixed so as to agitate it. This can be done by hand or using a machine. The agitation will cause the trichome heads to break off and then the solution will then go through filters.
3.) Oil Extraction with CO2 – Although CO2 extraction is not that popular in the food industry, many cannabis businesses have embraced the process. There are those who say that this would be the best way to extract the oil from the cannabis but its popularity is usually among big businesses that are able to profit lots from this method.
4.) Oil Extraction with Alcohol – Alcohol is quite clean and removing it is very easy. Due to how simple this method is one would wonder why it isn’t that common. Well using alcohol or ethanol to be more precise can result in the extraction of too much undesirables that can ruin the quality of the oil and not favored by marijuana enthusiasts.
So among the four extraction methods which would be considered the best? Well if you are looking for some high quality and strong oil then go for BHO extraction. The THC levels are high in the oil and with the availability of BHO Extractors you can easily make your own oil at home.
