Butane is just one of many cannabis-like products that have recently increased in availability in the cannabis retail goods, illicit market, and medical.
It is used to extract the oils from the cannabis extraction process and involves passing liquid butane through the raw vegetation and highly concentrated tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in plant material. Trichomes dissolve easily in butane, and then pass through a filter with butane. Further, the butane is allowed to evaporate from the solution or it is actively purged with vacuum or heat.
In result, depending on its consistency a product with a much higher THC concentration than cannabis seeds or flowers is developed like honeycomb, oil, shatter or wax. This process can occur in a regulated business environment with modern, closed-loop equipment, or in a home garage with tools or cannabis extraction equipment. ”
