Extraction

The legalization of recreational cannabis is changing the landscape of the California market, and Eureka Oxygen is changing with it.

As Northern California’s leading welding gas supplier, we are well-equipped to meet the needs of this burgeoning cannabis market, especially within the world of concentrates. Concentrates (a term used to refer to products created through a process known as extraction) are now one of the most popular ways to imbibe cannabis due to their higher purity and all-around quality. This is especially true for Butane Hash Oil and CO2 cannabis oil. We offer everything you need for making cannabis oil safely and effectively, including Butane tanks, ISO Butane Blends, CO2 tanks, and cylinder gas refills.

Local CO2 Tank Filling

If you’re looking for equipment for your BHO or CO2 cannabis extraction business, we here at Eureka Oxygen have you covered.  Not only do we offer BHO, ISO Butane Blends, and CO2 tanks, we have four locations to serve Northern California and beyond. We believe in the highest standards of concentrate technology and our technical experts have years of experience working with cylinder gases and equipment.  Check out our locations page to find all of our CO2 tank refill locations in Northern California.

CO2 Cannabis Oil

CO2 Cannabis Oil is most effectively obtained through a process known as Supercritical Fluid Extraction , which utilizes a CO2 extraction machine to separate plant material.  This sophisticated method is one of the most effective ways to reduce cannabis to its essential compounds.

While the biochemical details of CO2 cannabis oil extraction is complex. the process, especially when using a CO2 extraction machine, is not.  CO2 is a supercritical fluid, which simply means it converts to liquid form when pressurized.  A CO2 extraction machine makes it possible to change CO2 gas into a liquid by increasing pressure and keeping the temperature low.  Once the CO2 gas is in a liquid state, you raise the pressure and temperature of the liquid CO2 using your machine’s compressor and heater.  This changes the CO2 into its “supercritical” state, allowing it to pass through any plant material contained in the machine’s extractor.  This is the point where the CO2 is able to pull the THC, CBD, and terpene oils out of the cannabis, and this solution is then passed through a separator, which lowers the pressure, causing the CO2 to separate from the extracted product.  The CO2 is passed through a condenser, turned back into liquid form, where it can be used again.  

Differences Between BHO vs. CO2 Cannabis Oil

BHO Benefits

Butane Hash Oil is one of the most popular forms of cannabis concentrates.  The process tends to allow for stronger terpene preservation and expression  than CO2, which results in a tastier and more aromatic cannabis concentrate where the individual strain flavor can really shine through.   

Butane Hash Oil extraction results in a variety of consistencies, all with differing tastes and effects.  This allows for a wide selection of BHO products for consumers, including shatter, wax, oil, crumble, and live resin.  In addition,  BHO extraction is one of the strongest cannabis products on the market, with an average THC content of 75% but many products can contain up to 90%.
