Alcohol Extraction

What does “Alcohol Extraction” mean?

One of many ways of making cannabis concentrate. This method requires flower to be soaked in food-grade alcohol for a certain amount of time and then strained, with the remaining liquid put over a low heat source to remove the alcohol while still preserving the cannabinoids. Though the process is relatively accessible, it can be unsafe if not done properly, so it's important to use a reliable recipe when attempting to make concentrates at home. The concentrate made with this method is not suitable for smoking or dabs, but it can be great for edibles.

Example usage:

“The other day, we tried an alcohol extraction method.”
