BHO / BHO Extraction

BHO / BHO Extraction is an extraction method using liquid butane to extract essential oils and resins from cannabis by pushing liquid butane (which liquefies easily) through a tube packed with frosty buds of the marijuana plant. The final consistency of the product extracted differs depending on the manufacturing method, and may be referred to different names like honeycomb, shatter or earwax, descriptive of these different textures.  Using this form of extraction can produce a product with a THC content as high as 80-90%. Because Butane is highly flammable, and improper production practices can lead to explosions and fires, this method of production is not favored in commercial applications.
