Technically, “solventless” is not a term, but we’ll imagine like it’s exactly like everybody else into the cannabis industry. Anyhow, this post is overdue because many of you have got been coming and seeking vape cartridges that aren’t filled with anything or BHO else that’s extracted with hydrocarbons, and until recently, CO2 was the best we could do, but that’s over now because we recently put the Live Rosin carts from Dab Logic on our shelves.
But First, I should back up just in case no clue is had by you exactly what I’m discussing. Whenever many cannabis vape oil is manufactured, they focus on dried flower. Chances are they grind it finely, bake it to decarboxylate the cannabinoids, then they place it in an extraction vessel (which appears like a huge steel pipe). After which they “blast” some kind of solvent during that pipe, which separates the cannabis oil through the plant product, then that oil is put in a vape cartridge. If a hydrocarbon such as for instance butane ended up being utilized in place of CO2—which can be the truth, because butane is a far more solvent that is caustic removes more from the plant material—they must remove the solvent from the oil thanks to Colorado’s regulations. So, the oil must go into a purge oven before being put into cartridges: the purge oven heats the oil and creates a vacuum, which pulls from the oil all the residual solvents.
This is why BHO (butane hash oil) has never scared me—I trust the manufacturers we use for vendors, and I know their product has been tested for residual solvents to make sure it’s below colorado’s level that is permissible. Frankly, I’m more worried abut the butane that gets to my system using a butane lighter to smoke cigarettes regular cooking pot (we offer hemp wick inside our Durango dispensary in the slightest.
That if it bothers you as well), so the tested, butane-derived concentrates we sell don’t bother me being said, there are still plenty of people out there who avoid hydrocarbon-extracted concentrates for one of two reasons: one, they’re worried about the butane that is residual and two, they such as the flavor and most of solventless extracts. The previous is not a deal that is big to the testing, but I get the latter preference completely. Solvents such as CO2 and butane work well to remove cannabis oil from the plant, but they leave quite a bit behind, meaning the high you get from BHO will never be as complex as a flower high, and even though the butane has been removed, hydrocarbon extracts have a taste that is certain them that some individuals merely don’t like, that is legitimate. And that’s where hash that is solventless, or “SHO” comes in, bringing us full circle back to where this blog started.
Rosin and Bubble Hash are two examples of solventless hashes because both products are made with only water, heat, and pressure, but both products are solids, so they don’t do you any good when it comes to vape pens; you need SHO for that. But this stuff hasn’t been around for long, which makes sense: you don’t need to be a scientist to figure out so it took this burgeoning industry of ours quite some time to figure it out that it’s extraordinarily difficult to turn a plant into vape liquid. But we finally first got it done, and right here’s exactly how:
First, as opposed to beginning with dried, cured flower, in order to make SHO, manufacturers focus on “fresh-frozen flower,” which can be frozen with dry ice just after harvest. They are doing this since when you allow flower dry, most of the terpenes evaporate, which means that taste is lost. The next phase is to just take that fresh-frozen flower and provide it a bath in Bubble Hash (that is divided through the flower with ice water and technical agitation), and also this is completed to bump the potency up in the final product. Then, the bubble-hash bathed, fresh-frozen flower is wrapped in a mesh bag before being put in a press, which applies gentle heat and pressure to squeeze out from the plant matter all the hash oil contained within. After this step, you have something called “Live Rosin,” which we also sell in our Durango dispensary, but it’s still a solid, so one more step is required. Next, the Live Rosin is put in a large, deep tray to be baked. This denatures the Rosin that is live and all of the solids float, that are scraped from the liquid below, which can be then collected and place into cartridges as finalized SHO.
Crazy, right? And about it, even though SHO carts look like other carts, this complicated process is why you end up paying more for solventless vapes, but the price is worth it if you think. The flavor from these things is as good you get from flower, which is awesome as it gets, and since everything was removed from the flower mechanically, and since the flower was fresh-frozen, the high from a SHO cart mimics the complex one. Therefore, because they really are that wonderful.
And if you’ve never tried an SHO cart, I recommend running here to get one You covered if you’re just now realizing that most concentrates are made with hydrocarbons, and you’d like to try something that isn’t besides the new Dab Logic carts, we’ve got. We always have Live Rosin from Kush Masters on our shelves when it comes to solventless, full-melt concentrates. This is the solid form of SHO that didn’t undergo the denaturing process to make it a liquid, so it looks a lot like wax, but it’s as true to the plant as any concentrate out there, meaning it’s the best solventless dab on earth.Or, if you’re old-school you don’t dab, but you’d still like a solventless hash experience, The Greenery is Durango’s only dispensary that sells traditional, kief-based hashish like me and. We now have our personal Hash Factory that creates Moroccan and hash that is lebanese both of which are completely solventless, and all you need to do to step things up a notch is sprinkle some of either on top of you bowl (or roll some into your joint).But what about all you fans that are edible? Did you dudes realize that many gummies are infused with CO2 oil, or that many of them contain butane-extracted cannabinoids exactly like hydrocarbon dabs? Well, we’ve always sold Love’s Oven edibles such as their Turtle Brownies and Chocolate Chip Cookies, both of which are made with canna-butter, which is technically solventless for you. With edibles such as theses, cannabis flower is mixed into butter and then heated, which causes the cannabinoids to solventlessly infuse the butter (which
is not a word). However in the coming months, we’re planning to expand our solventless selection that is edible introducing “Dialed In” gummies, which are made with the same SHO you’d find in a Dab Logic vape cart, which is very exciting, because it means you’ll be able to get a flower-like high from an edible (and because these things are delicious).(*)And that’s that! SHO carts are the“it that is newest” thing into the cannabis industry, and now we get the best people in city, therefore come see us. As well as for that matter, we constantly make an effort to generate the latest and best innovations such as for instance SHO carts before everybody else in Durango, because We’re Your most useful Buds!(*)
