Hydrocarbon extraction is the most popular extraction method used to strip the cannabinoids, such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and terpenes from cannabis plant material. The process involves the use of hydrocarbons such as propane or butane as the solvent to extract the concentrate.
Some forms of hydrocarbon are butane and propane. To learn how these solvents are used to extract cannabis, keep on reading.
Butane & Propane
The most popular solvent-based concentrates are almost certainly butane hash oil (BHO) and propane has oil (PHO). These use liquified hydrocarbons to strip the cannabis plant of its resins. It’s a heavy industrial process requiring closed-loop extraction machinery to produce safely. The common availability of butane and propane makes it an accessible extraction method for small to large scale producers.
