An Interview with Curious about Cannabis



In this behind-the-scenes (BTS) interview we sit down with Dr. Daniel Hayden of Extractioneering to talk all about extraction and Cannabis extract quality. In this conversation we discuss misconceptions about hydrocarbon extraction techniques, the meaning of the term “full-spectrum”, how Extractioneering makes its carbonated extracts, using spectral fingerprinting to identify the quality of extracts, and much more.

This interview has an accompanying video available on the

Curious About Cannabis YouTube Channel.



Daniel Hayden, PhD of Extractioneering to discusses some of the traditional ways of producing Cannabis extracts and why Extractioneering has adopted a CO2-Butane co-solvent method for their Cannabis extractions.

In this behind-the-scenes (BTS) interview clip, we talk with Daniel Hayden, PhD of Extractioneering about their mission to change the public's perception of THC.



Extractioneering on a New Benchmark for Extracts.

Daniel Hayden, PhD of Extractioneering about his desire for a new quality benchmark for Cannabis extracts based on light absorption and spectral fingerprinting.



Extractioneering on the Vilification of Butane as a Solvent.

In this clip, Dr. Hayden discusses common misconceptions about their extraction processes and products - highlighting his concerns about the frequent vilification of butane as an extraction solvent.



Extractioneering on Vaping Temperatures and Vape Pen Quality

Extractioneering to discuss what temperatures to use for vaporizing Cannabis extracts, why higher temperatures are not always better, and common quality issues that arise in vaporizer pens.



Extractioneering on Thinking Critically About Hydrocarbon Solvents.

Extractioneering about the use of hydrocarbon solvents. Are they safe? Are they bad for the environment? Dr. Hayden outlines his vision of a truly closed-loop hydrocarbon extraction process.



Extractioneering on a New Benchmark for Extracts pt. 2

Extractioneering about his desire for a new quality benchmark for Cannabis extracts based on light absorption and spectral fingerprinting. In this clip, Dr. Hayden demonstrates the spectral fingerprinting principle in a simple demonstration using a smartphone flashlight and glass jars containing different extract products.
