Cannabis concentrates (cannabis oil, wax, shatter, RSO, etc.) refers to undiluted cannabinoids which have been extracted from the plant through a number of possible extraction methods. Concentrates are generally much more potent that cannabis flower or regular hashish, and their medicinal applications have proven very effective, but cannabis extraction is a unique and dangerous process requiring significant training. Cannabinoids are not water soluble, and to remove them properly, the cannabinoids and other active plant material must be dissolved in a solvent.
What are solvents?
Solvents are the chemicals used to remove the cannabinoids from the cannabis plant. When cannabis flowers are put in these solvents, the cannabinoids, terpenes, and other active ingredients are dissolved into the liquid or gas. Remaining solid plant matter is filtered out, and the liquid solvent/cannabinoid mixture is cleansed or purged to remove all solvents, leaving only cannabinoids and other active compounds of the cannabis plant.
Is removal of solvents important?
Expert precision is imperative to properly extract all traces of solvents from a cannabis concentrate, as any residual solvents can be harmful to patients. Iron Laboratories offers residual solvent testing for all smokeable and edible concentrates to comfirm the safety on concentrates for patients.
