Hydrocarbon Extraction – What you need to know

An extraction method that uses a hydrocarbon solvent to extract cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD), and terpenes found in the cannabis plant, creating a concentrated product. The solvent is typically butane or propane, which allows for low boiling points and high pressure, making them the industry standard for quality. When mixed with the solvent, the plant material is stripped of the desired compounds (cannabinoids for example). Then through different methods of refinement, the isolate is processed into a concentrated extract which can be used to create a variety of products such as oils, shatter, wax, and others. When done correctly the extracts will contain little to no hydrocarbon residue after the extraction is complete. Due to its low cost, output quality, and efficiency, hydrocarbon extraction has become a popular method for the refining of cannabis plant material.
