Cannabis extraction is a crucial process that determines the quality, potency, and effects of the final product. Understanding the different types of cannabis extraction methods can help you choose the best products to suit your needs. In this post, we will explore the main types of cannabis extraction and highlight some top products from African Smoke that utilize these methods.

Solvent Extraction

Solvent extraction is a method to separate compounds based on their relative solubilities in two different immiscible liquids, usually water and an organic solvent, featuring products from African Smoke.

Solvent-Based Extraction Methods

1. Butane Hash Oil (BHO) Extraction

BHO extraction uses butane to extract cannabinoids and terpenes from cannabis, producing potent concentrates like shatter and wax.

Key Tool:

  • Honey Puff Dab Extractor: A simple and effective device for extracting plant oils using butane. Fill the extractor with plant material, inject butane, and let it evaporate to leave a pure concentrate.

2. Ethanol Extraction

Ethanol extraction uses alcohol to dissolve cannabinoids, suitable for creating tinctures, vape oils, and more.

Key Tool:

  • Ethanol Extraction Kit: Comprehensive kits typically include all necessary components like filters, jars, and ethanol for a complete extraction process.

Featured Product: Honey Puff Dab Extractor

How to Use:

  1. Fill with ground cannabis.
  2. Inject butane.

Safety Tip: Always use in a well-ventilated area to prevent gas accumulation.
