How to Make Homemade Moroccan Hash
BHO is short for Butan Honey Oil, is an extremely concentrated oil – honey, which can exceed up to 70% THC, the chemical that causes the psychological effects of marijuana.
The BHO is a cannabinoid extraction, which is done by passing the butane gas for marijuana. When the two components are mixed, it leaves a liquid which evaporates all gas, leaves a residue which cold break as glass and hot, is like honey as it has the same color, the same identical texture and density.
This kind of marihuana, is very popular among consumers of medicinal cannabis, because the oils obtained through BHO, can be diluted with other oils (with olive oil, for example) and this makes that the dose can be adjust perfectly to the needs of each patient. In addition, having a large percentage of cannabinoids, it makes the BHO is very versatile as its transportation is very simple and unobtrusive.
The BHO due to the high level of psychoactive containing, becomes the most powerful products that can be obtain from cannabis. This element is via an extraction, using butane as solvent. It is important that the gas is used, it is as clean and pure as possible so that in this way, it is also cleaner and healthier for consumption is to be performed.
Making these concentrates marijuana, is performed more or less elaborate techniques.
One is that which is performed using a compressor and a vacuum chamber for purging. With this technique, the temperature of marijuana low, to keep the terpenes that give flavor to the resin. Must first purge gas water bath, to obtain a liquid oil while dense, then passed to a baking paper, and gets into the vacuum chamber, maintaining its dense texture, and the vacuum will draw the gas resin.
Another most widely used techniques is to be carried out with a tube of stainless steel, in which the grass is introduced. In the top has a nozzle with a non – return valve, and in the bottom a nozzle carrying filter.
When handling the butane gas, it is clear that it must be done in an enclosed space, and free of any type of flame (including the cigarette). Withdrawals are to be made, if possible, outdoors, to prevent gas from building up, since when do extraction, gas evaporates without applying heat. You should use rubber or latex gloves, to avoid any spark arising from static electricity buildup. It is also recommended to do this operation between two people, if something unexpected happens, this way, if something happens to a person, the other can help or ask for help if the case arises. When we remove the liquid from the extraction, must be careful because it could cause serious burns.
Depending on the type of extraction we make, we get different textures: the Shatter, the Budder texture or Amber Glass.
Shatter is a crystalline structure. The product, when is gathering room temperature, part like a sheet of glass. But do not worry if this happens, because it means that the process was successful. If the result was soft, it would signal that there are still traces of gas, which, of course, is not convenient.
With type Budder extraction, the end result is a product with the texture of a cheese, and where the smell and taste is very concentrated.
Extraction achieved through Amber Glass, is containing higher concentration of THC, as it is clean wax.
You may seem too complicated or sophisticated make yourself this type of extraction process. Do not worry, once again from Piensa En Verde we want to make your life easier, and service we offer you everything you need to make the BHO process. For example, we propose a Vacuum Pump BHO , an electrical device that will help with the purging of BHO oils, with the connection hose connected to the dryer, you can clean effectively resin of the remaining particles butane, thus totally pure and ready to sample oil is obtained. These professional HBS pumps have a power of 30 bar pressure, more than enough to leave no bubble butane in the resin. In addition, this device incorporates a pressure gauge to control the pressure at which it is working.
And not only that, but also has an integrated sight glass to monitor the oil level, and it is much quieter than other pumps. We offer you two models: one capable of extracting 170 l / min (6 CFM), and other 283 l / min (10 CFM: cubic feet).
Another of the most versatile and easy product to use that you can find on the market is the Vacuum Pump for BHO , a fundamental tool for purging the BHO oils, with which automatically clean the resin remaining particles of butane, in this way the oil is obtained completely pure, and ready to inhale.
In addition, this device incorporates a control valve to protect the system from oil contamination, if there was a power failure. This German – made professional pump is rated at 34 bar pressure, a more than sufficient amount, so that there is not a bubble butane in oils that we will perform.
Finally, you know that we offer a direct route, so you can send us all your questions or advice. We will be happy to assist you.
