One of our biggest questions is "What is It"?
Our product is a cannabis extraction that is performed with a mixed hydrocarbon solvent. This mixed hydrocarbon solvent is Propane/Iso-Butane/N-Butane. We do not recycle our solvent so contaminants like sprays or treatments do not carry over from one client to the next. We maintain the full spectrum cannabis extract using the solvent as a carrier, allowing the biomolecules to remain unmolested.
During this event we dewax and it is during this process that the HTFSE liquid is born. The entire extract after dewaxing has its solvent removed and is placed in a vacuum oven to purge long low and slow. After the residual solvents are brought below a level of 0.05% (<500ppm), the extract is bottled and the natural biochemistry is allowed to mature which typically forces out all of the THCa in the form of crystals we call sugars.
What about Solvent Sources and Residual Solvents?
We source our 99.5% purity triple blend hydrocarbon gases from known local suppliers.
We run our experiments as scientists do, with proper respect for solvents, personal safety, and environmental considerations. With the proper safety equipment and experimental design we have the capability to operate in the safest working environments known to the chemical industry which also includes a custom built C1D1 laboratory.
Safety of both ourselves while making the product, and for the consumer of our product when finished is our ultimate concern. Cannabis extraction isn't meant to be performed by farmers in garages or sheds. Even when these farmers descend from the hills and buy industrial buildings, they are still simpletons.
Cannabis extraction is extremely complex. Don't let lesser companies convince you otherwise. It takes science, chemistry, specialized non consumer equipment, understanding, and the ability to work safely around solvents in industrial and laboratory environments.
A store bought "CLS" can kill an untrained operator faster than any open solvent work.
A store bought "CLS" can still run canned solvent.
Distillation isn't the "cure all" to ensure clean solvent.
