Butabe Hash Oil (BHO) Vs CO2 Cannabis Oil

A lot of marijuana smokers have shifted their direction to a new and pure form of the cannabis plant known as concentrates. Cannabis concentrate is obtained through some type of extraction process. Concentrates are very potent and tends to get the marijuana consumer very stoned.

Cannabis concentrates are obtained through a extraction process where marijuana resin is extracted from the leaves and buds of marijuana plants. These extraction processes are possible through the use of solvents. The two most popular solvents used for cannabis extraction: butane and carbon dioxide. Marijuana extraction using butane is popularly known as butane hash oil (BHO). Cannabis extraction using liquid carbon dioxide is a little more complicated and this process is known as Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SCFE) where liquid carbon dioxide is used to extract from the cannabis plants. A great benefit of marijuana extraction using CO2 is that a lot of molds, mildews, and other unwanted ingredients. A popular way that marijuana concentrates are consumed is by vaporizing which is said to be less harmful than a joint.

Butane Hash Oil (BHO)

Butane Hash Oil (BHO) has taken its name after the process it goes through. Marijuana is extracted by passing butane through cannabis trimmings in an airtight container, in such a way that the trimmings remain intact and marijuana resin is forced out and mixed with butane. This mixture is then evaporated to get rid of most of the butane; all of the butane is you are using a vacuum oven. The end product is cannabis concentrate products by way of butane extraction.

BHO is very controversial as it uses a chemical solvent to extract cannabis. For this reason, butane hash oil is often rejected by health fanatics. There has also been numerous reported explosions when people are extracting marijuana using a combustible gas such as butane.

Super Critical Fluid Extraction (SFCE) CO2 Hash Oil

Compared with Butane Hash Oil (BHO), CO2 oil is a costly procedure and requires a special set of skills along with very expensive machinery. CO2 oil is obtained by passing liquid CO2 through marijuana buds and cannabis “sugar” trim at extremely high pressure. This process is known as Supercritical Fluid Extraction and mostly uses CO2 for cannabis extraction. This form of extraction also captures a collection of cannabinoids and terpenes from the marijuana buds.

CO2 is a very ‘in demand’ oil, because it isn’t as harmful as butane when ingested being that CO2 is a naturally occurring inert gas. BHO, on the other hand, is known to leave traces of heavy metal even when all the butane has been evaporated. CO2 extraction of marijuana also does not involve a combustible gas…..although it does involve freezing CO2 gas at very high temperatures; hence, the need for expensive machinery.

Both forms of these marijuana concentrates can get the cannabis consumer very stoned. BHO is more readily available but CO2 cannabis oil is much more pure. CaliCannabisExpress offers the best marijuana concentrates on the market today. These cannabis extracts can have really high THC content from 50% to 75%. CaliCannabisExpress also offers CBD-only cannabis extract products for people that do not want to consume THC in their medical marijuana products.

Marijuana Edibles 101 – Safely Consume Cannabis

Marijuana edibles are becoming more and more popular these days, especially with the advent of recreational marijuana in Colorado. Cannabis edibles offer a more discreet way to consume marijuana. Edibles are made by mixing marijuana or cannabis extract into various food products. The most popular marijuana edible are the “pot” brownies but a cannabis consumer has many options from chocolates to gummies containing some form of marijuana.

Marijuana edibles come in many sizes and forms i.e. gummies, ice cream, soda, lollipops, cakes, chocolate, etc. There are a few guidelines that a cannabis consumer should adhere to before eating marijuana edibles. Marijuana-Infused edibles are a good and discreet way to consume your medical marijuana and get the feeling that you want. You have to limit your serving size with edibles as overdosing can take place. A marijuana consumer should know how much cannabis they are consuming in the form of these marijuana edibles by way of accurate information on packaging such as THC content.

With the legalization of medical marijuana in over twenty states in the USA, cannabis edibles now know exactly how much cannabis (and THC) you are consuming with each edible. A small amount of THC, 10 to 30 milligrams of THC for example, could be enough for one serving and can result in as high for up to six hours if someone’s tolerance is low. Cheeba Chews are marijuana-infused candy that is popular among the medical marijuana patients. A Cheeba Chew is a type of chewy cannabis candy that is infused with THC and provides a more discreet way to consume your medical marijuana.

A cannabis consumer’s weight and metabolism plays a vital role in how their body will react to these marijuana-infused edibles. If you are new to consuming marijuana-infused edibles that contain a good amount of THC, you might want to start with a low THC dose of 10 milligrams. As a medical marijuana consumer, you can increase your dosage of THC with time as you find out how your body reacts to marijuana-infused edibles. If a medical marijuana patient does not want to “get floored”, it is important to be careful not to go overboard with consuming too many cannabis edibles.Marijuana Edible for sale

While there are many companies that are now making cannabis-infused edibles, home-made marijuana edibles are still just as popular as ever. If a medical marijuana patient decides to make their own marijuana edibles, it is a good idea as a precaution, to label any edible that you make using marijuana as there is a high risk for children, friends or family ingesting cannabis by accident. It’s easy to overdose on marijuana-infused snacks; which is why it’s always safe to keep normal snacks on hand to be consumed instead of munching on the edibles containing cannabis. This is a big waste of these medical marijuana products.

Consuming marijuana edibles sounds like a good thing but consuming too much THC found in marijuana edibles can result in paranoia, hallucinations, problems with coordination, dizziness and even worse medical conditions. If a medical marijuana patient thinks they may have overdosed on a marijuana edible, there’s no need to panic. The medical marijuana patient just needs to wait it out a few hours to let their body metabolize the marijuana and the high will eventually subside.

A guide to different forms of cannabis concentrates: Dabs, wax, earwax, honey, honey oil, shatter.

What are dabs?

Dabs are a way of smoking weed concentrates and there are different forms of concentrates. Dabs is just a word for any kind of concentrates excluding hash, Wax, and oil, and shatter. There are various forms of concentrates, or concentrated active content that is derived from the buds and and or leafs. There are also many extraction methods for extracting all the THC, THCA, CBD other cannabinoids out of the marijuana plant. The big difference between all of these forms of cannabis concentrates are mainly in the form of the concentrates are how they were extracted from the cannabis plant and to what degree they were refined. Wax versus oil refers to the consistency of the concentrate and how they were extracted. Shatter and honey oil tend to be a little more concentrated.

Cannabis CO2

Dabs, wax, earwax, honey, honey oil, shatter all refers to Butane Hash Oil or Co2 extracted hash oil. They are a strong THC high. If it is gooey then it is an oil and if it appears to resemble earwax then the concentrate is generally referred to as a wax. If it is solid and shiny/glassy, that is referred to as shatter. The term dab is also a little more palatable than the other names concentrated hash oil goes by, like earwax or shatter.

The main difference is that oil is generally a little less refined, or extracted differently, meaning it was only heat purged (but tech. this could make it shatter) while wax was likely heat purged and then vacuum purged to further increase the quality of the concentrate. Cannabis Oil appears to be more solid brown to yellow to black oil and wax tends to be more of a light amber gold color. Wax and oil are forms of concentrated THC. Dabs referring to dabbing, a specific method of smoking concentrates, but can sometimes mean gooey oils like BHO, because those are the form of concentrate that’s typically used for dabs. Dabs are a method of consuming concentrated THC.

Dabs were known historically as the term of taking a piece of metal resembling a large nail is held at the end of a curved glass pipe then heated until glowing with a lighter or kitchen torch; applying a small ‘dab’ of the thick marijuana hash oil (greasy and thicker than cold honey) is placed on the end of a thin glass rod and then touched to the hot nail. The smoker inhales the instantly vaporized concentrate through the glass bong or pipe and gets you seriously stoned.

Weed oil, also known as “honey oil” comes from a potentially dangerous extraction process of turning marijuana plants into oil via super critical fluid extraction processes involving either usually Co2 or butane (also known as BHO).

What is butane hash oil (BHO)?

Butane hash oil is extracting honey oil out of the marijuana plant and these cannabis concentrates approach 70 to 90 percent THC. They get you really medicated.

Concentrates can be consumed via a small portable vaporizer that resembles an e-cigarette. This delivery-system is a little more incognito than smoking weed in terms of dealing with law enforcement.

Concentrates covers all of the forms: honey oil, wax, shatter, etc. Dabs are what you do when you smoke concentrates with a nail or dome and a dabber. Hash oils are hash that has been made by using a solvent (usually either butane or CO2) to dissolve the thc out of the cannabis plant matter. This process is referred to as critical super fluid extraction. There are two main ways of super fluid extraction methods: butane hash oil (aslo known as BHO) and then there is CO2 cannabis oil. For extraction, you use CO2 as a gas or a liquid and pressurize it to the “Super Critical” state where it pulls the cannabis oils, waxes and other materials out of the marijuana plant. When you run Super Critical fluid extraction via CO2, you destroy microbial bacteria, mildews and molds so it is a little cleaner than butane extracted hash oil (BHO). Keif is unprocessed trichomes usually tumbled off of the marijuana, or cannabis plant material. That is where you get the most concentrated THC. They look like shiny green crystals but you can take keif and apply high pressure or a low amount of heat it will change to more of a putty substance. This is hash. Typical Hash, meaning the brick black kind is usually known as bubble hash. Bubble Hash is the lowest form of hash.

Kief – The trichromes that fall off the plant. Generally people like to sprinkle a little kief in a packed bowl on top of some marjuana nugs.

Hash Oil – My personal favorite. Hash Oil is a liquid form of THC and is usually made with an alcohol base. Since THC becomes it’s most concentrates in oil form, the THC levels can usually be pretty high for oils, without the price being out of reach. CO2 has oil tends to be a little more expensive because it is cleaner and the equipment needed for CO2 super critical extraction is pretty expensive and requires a little biochemistry know how.

How to Apply Hash Oil – Hash oil, you just dab a little on a smoking device and smoke it.
