Butane hash oil (BHO) is a potent concentrate derived from the hemp plant by using liquid butane for extraction. The process involves combining raw hemp with liquid butane in a high-pressure, high-temperature system. The butane acts as a solvent, effectively extracting the delta 9 resin containing THC from the plant material. To ensure the safety of the oil for consumption, the BHO undergoes a butane elimination process using a vacuum system. This system creates an environment where the butane evaporates, transforming from liquid to gas. Once the butane has completely evaporated, the BHO becomes safe and ready to be enjoyed.
BHO comes in various forms, such as shatter, budder, crumble, wax, etc. Each type of BHO concentrate possesses its own distinctive consistency, texture, and color. Regardless of the specific version, this remarkable concentrate is best experienced using a dab rig or a vaporizer.
