  2. Addressing Extraction Issues

What is Medusa stone or fast crash?

These are industry terms for cannabinoid acid (specifically THCa) crystallization problems of “chalky petrification” and “runaway precipitation,” respectively. Careful analysis has revealed the root cause is impurities—mainly organo-amines and methanol from the petroleum refining process—in the butane used as solvent to extract BHO or “butane honey oil” from the Cannabis.

Carbon Chemistry has been at the forefront of solutions to this menace, providing adsorbent filtration media to control, minimize and even eliminate these phenomena easily, safely and efficiently.
