Solventless extraction

Solventless extraction refers to a method of extracting compounds from plant material without the use of solvent chemicals. This technique is particularly significant within industries such as the cannabis industry, where it is employed to isolate cannabinoids, terpenes, and other valuable components from the plant matter. Unlike solvent-based methods that might use substances like butane, ethanol, or CO2, solventless extraction relies on physical means to separate the desired elements. Techniques include manual or mechanical processes such as dry sifting, where screens are used to filter out trichomes; heat and pressure applications, as seen in rosin pressing where heat plates squeeze out resinous sap; or water-based methods like ice water hash or bubble hash production, where cold water and agitation are used to break off and collect trichomes. Solventless extraction is lauded for its ability to produce pure, potent, and often more flavorful extracts without the potential for residual solvents, making it a preferred method for health-conscious consumers and those seeking a more natural product. Additionally, it is considered environmentally friendly due to the absence of chemical solvents that require careful disposal. The increasing demand for clean and green products has made solventless extraction a growing field of interest, leading to innovations and improvements in extraction technology and techniques.
