Cannabis concentrates are used by a wide variety of people. From patients that are seeking relief from symptoms of a chronic illness, to people that are using it recreationally, the popularity of concentrates is continuing to increase. With the use of cannabis becoming more widely accepted, it is spurring on the continued use of these products and therefore the demand for higher output is being exerted on the different marijuana extraction companies. Unfortunately, this is also leading to more and more people that are not professionals in the field of cannabis extraction that are attempting to profit from the increasing demand for more variety and more potent cannabis concentrates. Now, any person can go online and purchase a closed loop extraction system and begin to play around with creating their own concentrates.
Some of this experimentation has led to some new cannabis companies that are thriving, but in many other cases it can lead to products that do not have the proper testing done on their concentrates and may have contaminates in them. Some methods of extraction such as butane extraction are considered dangerous and should not even be attempted at home. Unfortunately, the industry is still trying to catch up with all of the new businesses that are popping up in the cannabis industry. This means that there are still not hard and fast regulations in place that prevent someone from trying to create their own amateur set up with extraction equipment that they have piecemealed together on their own. This can lead to potentially dangerous situations and imperfect products. If you are interested in getting into the cannabis concentrates industry, then the best way to go about it is to start off by making sure that you are learning from the experts. Study up on your chemistry, as well as your knowledge of different extraction methods. Talk to other extraction companies and see if you can intern with them for a few months. Most important, make sure that you are using professional extraction equipment that has been purchased from a reliable company. The last situation that you want to end up in is one where you have blown up your kitchen or set your house on fire because of faulty equipment or lack of a solid foundation of working knowledge of how cannabis extraction works.
There are a variety of ways that you can extract the THC from the marijuana plant, and they all make different end products. Make sure that you know what the different methods are and what the end products will be ahead of time. It would be a shame to invest in a high quality extraction lab set only to realize that you do not like the end result, so again this is where working with a professional first is going to benefit you. Marijuana is showing no signs of slowing down in its rise up the popularity ladder, but that does not mean that you should sacrifice safety and quality in order to be a part of that rise.
