Butane honey oil or BHO for short is the product made when extracting the resin from the buds of the cannabis plant in a process known as BHO extraction. In order to extract butane honey oil one must have a BHO Extractor. The extracted BHO is actually quite strong as it contains a high concentration of the compound THC. This is also primarily the reason why many want to try out butane honey oil with users wanting to experience the kind of high that it can give.
The process of extracting butane honey oil from cannabis is actually quite simple. You don’t need any fancy lab apparatus, a secret recipe, or doing lots of trial and error. All you need is your BHO extractor and obviously your cannabis from which you will be extracting BHO (and a few other minor things). However, it is important to take note that this is more suited for those who are serious enthusiasts of marijuana and cannabis and really want to sample BHO.
If you want to be able to make a considerable amount of BHO, you will want to have a lot of cannabis buds to work with. If you are on a budget and can’t get your hands on a lot of buds, you can work with some leftover trim and such. But if you really want to make the best BHO, you will want to use buds as that is where a lot of the resin is which contains all that THC. Using a BHO Extractor means you will be working with butane so it is very important that you take a lot of caution when extraction BHO from the cannabis.
The process of extracting BHO starts with putting in the buds into the BHO extractor. The buds have to be evenly bread inside making sure that they are not packed into one area. After putting in the buds, a filter is placed into the extractor.
Once the buds are secure inside the extractor, the butane canister is then attached to the BHO extractor. The liquid butane will then flow through the BHO extractor and basically mix with the buds inside. As the butane comes in contact with the buds in draws out the resin and oils from the inside and carries it as it passes out through the BHO extractor.
The mixture that flows out from the extractor is then collected into a separate container. Inside this container the liquid butane is boiled off using a boiler. As the boiling continues it is recommended to pop the bubbles with a toothpick as they appear. After all the butane has been boiled off, you will be left with some oil stuck to the container. This is the BHO you have made and it is scraped off and collected into a container until use.
That is basically how you use a BHO Extractor and extract the oil and resin from your cannabis buds. Once you have your BHO, feel free to enjoy it and have a good time.
