War of the Solvents

Which Solvent is Best ?

BHO and Ethanol Solvent

​

Hydrocarbons (such as Butane or BHO) and Ethanol are cheap solvents, that can degrade terpenes, nutraceuticals, and extract non-desirable components that require a great deal more post-processing. Both are highly flammable and explosive. So much, that specially designed blast rooms are required for code, and are outlawed in some areas. BHO specifically, can leave residues, which if are not properly removed during distillation, can result in nose-burn or heart aches (Google - butane in the bloodstream or dangers of butane ingestion for more info). If not properly processed, BHO only has a shelf-life of a few weeks. Reference: Human Toxicity of Butane

​

​

Want to lose terpenes and beneficial cannabidiols ? Use ethanol as an extraction method:

While ethanol is a beneficial solvent choice for its low toxicity, it also readily extracts the chlorophyll producing an undesirable flavor in the resulting oil. The author experimented with an activated charcoal filter post-extraction step to remove the chlorophyll but lost approximately half of the cannabinoids and terpenes as a result.

CO2 Solvent

​

CO2 is one of the preferred solvents for botanical extraction, which can better target oil (minimize wax and other undesirable extractions which need to be post-processed removed). It has a relatively unlimited shelf life if properly prepared. With proper extraction technique, CO2 can preserve both terpenes and nutraceuticals.

Organic Extraction Using Water

- Eco Extraction

- Green Extraction

- Hydro Extraction

Using water as the botanical oil extraction method is the holy-grail of methods, since it does not require high-pressure gas containment, and uses one of the most abundant elements available, water.

​

Retains terpenes.

​

Retains valuable cannabidiols.

​

An additional benefit is that it is a organic process, can be continuous feed, and smaller footprint with less overall equipment costs in large processing operations.
