What is BHO?
BHO, or Butane Hash Oil, is a Cannabis extract that is concentrated using butane as an organic solvent. Once extracted, the oil is put through a process called Winterization, where it is frozen for several days. This process ensures that the full cannabinoid and terpene profiles remain intact in the final product.
BHO’s can vary in consistency. As a result, they come in many different forms, such as budder, sauce and shatter. The consistency of BHO’s depends on the techniques used during the extraction, separation and purification processes. Variations in these techniques will provide different results, in fact, some strains are even more likely to produce certain textures than others.
The active Cannabinoid in BHO is THC, though there are many other cannabinoids and terpenes that will add different effects. In most cases, BHO can reach a potency of upwards of 80% THC.
Is BHO Safe?
Butane extraction processes have made huge advancements over the years. Not only have these advancements improved the safety of the extraction process, they have also increased the overall purity of the oil. Additionally, with the use of new refining techniques, many residual chemicals that would have previously ended up in the final product are removed. These new methods ensure that BHO’s are as safe and as clean as possible. However, there are some producers who still use old extraction methods, which leave residual chemicals behind in the final product. That’s why we only deal with accredited producers to ensure you receive the cleanest product every time.
Can I make BHO at home?
Butane is a highly flammable solvent and we do not in any way recommend using solvents in your own home. BHO’s should always be purchased from experienced distributors to ensure the safety of everyone involved.
