Hydrocarbon extraction is the most popular extraction method used to strip the cannabinoids, such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and terpenes from cannabis plant material. The process involves the use of hydrocarbons such as propane or butane as the solvent to extract the concentrate. The highly concentrated extract is then used to create cannabis oils, shatter, glass, hash, wax, and other products. Hydrocarbon extraction is a clean extraction method that leaves little or no hydrocarbon residue when properly utilized. At the end of the hydrocarbon extraction process, the resulting extract is clean and contains very high levels of cannabinoids and terpenes.
