Why is BHO extraction risky? How do BHO products harm my health?
BHO extraction is risky and should only be completed by professionals because of the flammable gas used in the process. The “gas takes liquid form in the tube during the extraction process, and then quickly evaporates when the heat is applied to the mixture. After it evaporates, heavier-than-oxygen butane quickly ‘falls on the floor’ This is why making BHO indoors is extremely dangerous” (The Growth Op).
Are Butane Hash Oil Products High in THC?
BHO products are extremely high in THC as it is a concentrate. Majority of THC molecules are in the oil making it more potent than the dried herb itself.
Can Butane Hash Oil Products Cause Cancer?
Since this product in new in recent years, scientists are still testing the severity of cancer-causing agents in the butane cannabis products. However, it must be noted that BHO products/butane products have classified carcinogens in them from the butane extraction process. When the BHO product user heats up the BHO product, it begins releasing carcinogens immediately, which you then inhale.
If the BHO product is manufactured properly, there should be less than 1% of butane left in the product once it is ready for sale. There are many varying opinions, but our opinion at Canada Wide Weed is that BHO products are harmful to the body and shouldn’t be used as the main inhalation of cannabis.
