Definition

Alcohol extraction is the process of stripping the essential oils and trichomes from the marijuana plant by using either ethyl or isopropyl alcohol. Once the extra plant material is filtered out and the alcohol evaporates, a sticky and potent golden hash oil remains. Further purification through vacuum pressure, heat, or agitation can change the texture of the golden hash oil to oil, shatter, or budder, depending on the extraction process.

Usage


“I bought some golden hash oil that was made using ethyl alcohol extraction”
