What Cannabis Extraction Equipment Should I Invest In?

Cannabis extraction is an industrial process for converting target molecules in cannabis raw material into a usable form. It uses sophisticated equipment designed to perform specialized functions, such as a cannabis chiller for precise temperature control. The purpose of cannabis extraction is to remove plant oils and target and collect potent compounds, such as THC, CBD, terpenes, and other precious cannabinoids. These compounds are used to create high-demand cannabis products, such as tinctures, capsules, hash, and oils. 

The most common solvent-based cannabis extraction methods are:
