Watch as we host a battle royale between the three main cannabis extraction solvent methods: Ethanol, BHO, and CO2 — and reveal the winner.
We know that extracts already represent at least 25 percent of retail sales in mature cannabis markets today and that hydrocarbon extraction is uniquely suited to produce a wide range of high-quality extracts. But do different extraction solvents really make a difference consumers will notice? We put products from each solvent method to the test with industry experts: a good old-fashioned blind taste test featuring budtenders who (should) know best. Myths are busted! An extract champion is crowned!
After revealing the subjective results, we walk you through objective data behind the samples, unpacking the science that determined the taste that reigned supreme. Then, we go even deeper to show you why it is so important to maintain the integrity of a flower strain, preserve terpenes, achieve the entourage effect, and showcase products that bring in the most profits.
