What Is Meant By Solvent Extraction?
Solvent extraction means the solvent-based process of extraction which uses the chemical solvents like carbon dioxide, propane, ethanol for striping terpenes and cannabinoids from cannabis plant and butane. For the post-extraction stage purging is done to ensure that all the residual amount of solvent is extracted to the acceptable level set by the country’s or state regulators.
A lot of manufacturers prefer chemical solvent because they are pretty effective to gather up all the available trichomes present in the cannabis plant. This chemical extraction process is a lot more fast that the solventless process of extraction.
Although solventless extraction has its advantages they are worth some price. Solvent extraction over the year has become a less healthy choice in the marketplace because of the dangerous reputation of butane hash oil which cause explosions and fires
Which is an Attractive Option: Solvent vs Solventless?
Solventless extraction is an attractive option because of lower obstacles to entry and also because although the equipment for solventless extraction cause a considerable amount of money but it is worth it. Solventless products sell good in the marketplace because of the quality and safety.
The solvent based extraction machinery require a lot of safety to work and operate it at high temperature and pressures with various volatile material that can result in disaster if not handled with care or used properly.
According to ROI which stands for return on investment, the leading method of extraction is solventless extraction because of high-quality and reassurance in products like craft rosin.
Craft rosin are doing amazing in the market with over $100 per gram and intense loyalty by consumer, attractive margin even though slow production time period compared to solvent extraction products like BHO.
