Cannabis Distillates Concentrates
Cannabis Distillates Concentrates: These days we have dozens of different cannabis extracts on the market, but the newest hit is THC distillate which is totally different from BHO and other extracts.
What is THC distillate?
You’ve surely heard of distillation before—distilled water is a good example we can use.
Distilled water is water that gets evaporated and then rapidly cooled, so that it goes back into liquid form. This way the water gets purified.
Before we get into what THC distillate actually is, let’s first go over the definition of distillates in general.
According to Oxford Dictionaries, distillation is “the action of purifying a liquid by a process of heating and cooling”, and distillates are liquids that are the end result of this process.
Once you throw THC into that definition, the formula is pretty clear:
THC distillate is a cannabis extract made through short path distillation of cannabis oil, and it can be made from any type of cannabis oil (CO2, BHO, ethanol extract).
High-grade THC distillate is made in laboratories and takes an actual chemist to safely make.
During the process, all impurities and unwanted parts of the plant are removed.
THC distillate is so pure that it doesn’t even contain chlorophyll and it can reach up to 99% cannabinoid content. Impurities such as pesticides and fungi residuals, plant fats and waxes are all removed in the process.
The distillation process involves heating up and cooling explosive liquids, turning CO2 into a supercritical fluid, and several more steps. It’s safe to say that the process is much more complicated than BHO extraction.
In fact, labs that make THC distillates from scratch have fully automated systems that do decarboxylation, winterization, fractionation, and short path distillation one after another.
If you’re wondering whether you can make THC distillate on your own, I would always stick by the good old “if you don’t know what the word you’re reading means, don’t even consider doing it”.
It is safe to say that THC distillate is the clearest and most potent cannabis concentrate you can buy on the market today.
