When you want to extract the valuable CBD or THC from your cannabis, for tinctures, butters, and edibles, you need to have the right equipment. Many factors need to be considered when choosing the extraction equipment that is best for you: the size of your operation, what kind of solvents (if any) you want to use, and what will give you the best value for your investment. Whether you are new to extraction or a long-time producer, knowing what equipment is best for you can be a challenge.
What Are Concentrates
Botanicals concentrates have all of the desirable compounds — cannabinoids and terpenes — of the plant with none of the excess impurities and plant material that come with straight flower. Concentrates are made one of two ways: either physically separating the trichome from the plant by shaking or pressing; or by using a solvent to extract the trichome.
