Alcohol extraction


Alcohol extraction is one of the extraction methods commonly used to make cannabis oil and cannabis concentrates. This process uses two types of alcohol, either pure ethyl alcohol or isopropyl, as a solvent to remove essential oils and trichomes from the marijuana plant.
For the extraction of cannabis, ethanol is the safest and healthiest alcohol option than isopropyl. Alcohol is combined with dried cannabis plant material and functions as a solvent and transports THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), cannabinoids and terpenes from plant material.
This method requires that the flower be soaked in alcohol for a defined amount of instance. Once the extra plant is washed, it is filtered, and the alcohol evaporates, the last sticky and potent hash oil remains. Thus, to further remove the remaining liquid or any residual alcohol, use vacuum pressure, a low heat source, or agitation.
Therefore, depending on the extraction process, it can change the texture of the golden hashish from oil to oil, bud, or shine to create a product and concentrate on pure and finished cannabis oil. It is a relatively straightforward process, but it is essential to follow a careful process by cannabis growers when trying to make concentrates at home.
