BHO, also called butane hash oil or butane gas extraction, has become the preferred method for many large-scale medical producers because of its flexibility and scalability.
Nowadays BHO can be accessed from home by anyone who has access to a computer. With the invention of a number of BHO kits, it is now possible to produce your own BHO through a process of glycerin and butane conversion.
Read on to find out more about how this new method of production can help you break free from the confines of your local pharmacy.
Butane Hash Oil – This is one of the most popular forms of BHO and is also one of the most dangerous to make.
You must keep in mind that butane is highly flammable, therefore it is extremely dangerous if you are not sure of how much to extract from your herbs or how to properly use the extraction device or machine.
However, if you are careful then it is a very safe way of creating your own hash oil. You should also be aware that although butane is very flammable, it also produces carbon monoxide when being burned thus producing carbon dioxide which can be extremely harmful.
This is one of the reasons why it is illegal to sell BHO in some retail outlets.
However, a BHO is incredibly easy to create by using a concentrate extractor. When butane hash oil is created it is made by heating cannabis plant extract into the butane flame. Once it burns, the butane concentrates the heat and creates BHO.
However, you must be extremely careful when working with concentrated BHO because it can be extremely dangerous and even deadly if it is inhaled.
Concentrated BHO is very cheap to produce so you should not worry about the cost factor as much.
If you are interested in starting a home business or making a profit by using BHO to sell, then it is highly recommended that you go to a supplier who offers BHO extraction as part of their starter kit.
If you are looking for quality products then you need to make sure that you buy only from a supplier who deals with premium cannabis concentrates. In this way you can be assured that you will get the best product that is worth the money.
Apart from BHO oil, butane can also be extracted from medical marijuana plants. However, the process used by most suppliers is a bit messy. Most people prefer butane extraction to the oil extraction process because it is much easier and less messy.
When using butane for BHO make sure that you buy organic butane instead of the synthetic kind because the latter tends to contain carcinogens and other hazardous chemicals.
Apart, from butane, another popular BHO solvent is a mixture of closed-loop extraction methods and mineral oil. The closed-loop extraction method refers to the use of butane under pressure rather than directly inhaling the oil. Mineral oil is used because it serves as a lubricant and allows for easy stirring. In addition to these benefits, mineral oil is also known for its ability to absorb quickly into the bloodstream without being burned or contaminated.
Another popular method used by suppliers to produce BHO concentrate is the charcoal-infused extraction method.
Charcoal is extracted from fresh herbs using a method called caustic plating. This is done by dropping the concentrated form of BHO in a chamber with co2. The chamber is later refilled with fresh charcoal and the process is repeated.
This process is highly effective because it produces a concentrated form of BHO with almost double the amount of active ingredients compared to the normal extracted dose.
With the widespread use of biofuels in modern society, there has been an increased interest in the safety of these BHO solvents.
However, despite the research and developments in safety practices, there are still instances where exposure to volatile organic compounds (VOCs) may be harmful. A common example is when operators fail to follow flammability warnings on industrial grinders and extractors. To minimize the possibility of exposure, operators should wear safety goggles and gloves and work in a well-ventilated area.
