We are committed to helping people create the highest quality of oils and concentrates using our products, and to promoting the benefits of whole-plant ethanol extraction.
RSO or “Rick Simpson Oil” is named after the man who cured his cancer by creating and consuming the oil years ago. His story “Run From the Cure” has helped many people searching for alternative cancer treatments. He has taught thousands of others how to make their own oil. The oil, which has a dark color and extremely sticky consistency, has shown promise in treating nearly any type of cancer as well as several neurological and chronic disorders. It’s characterized by high CBD and THC levels as well as other essential chemical components.
At Extractohol, we prefer to use the term Full Extraction Cannabis Oil (FECO), or just CO. (Cannabis Oil). Rick Simpson advocates the use of toxic solvents such as Naphtha and denatured alcohols (toxins have been added to prevent consumption) like isopropyl alcohol. These have important industrial purposes, but should have no place in our tinctures, oils, concentrates, etc. !
Anytime you are making oil for a patient in need, you need to be using Organic or Food Grade Alcohol. Below are a few reasons why an ethyl alcohol extraction process is absolutely essential to preserving the quality, purity, potency and overall medicinal value of your oil.
Safe & Efficient
Popular butane (BHO) and CO2 extraction methods have their benefits and drawbacks, but when it comes to the actual production process, there are important things to consider...
Butane is highly combustible, and without the right systems in place, it may put manufacturers at risk of fire or explosion. CO2, on the other hand, is clean, but the equipment used is very expensive. Both often use ethyl alcohol (ethanol), in the final process. By using an ethanol process for extraction instead, producers can produce a clean, high-quality product, and keep their facilities safe at the same time.
Extraction methods using other popular solvents have the potential to leave residue behind in the oil. These remnants are then passed on to the end user, upping his or her risk for illness or irritation. This is unacceptable, and can easily be avoided simply by switching to an ethanol-based extraction process.
Ethanol is a high-proof alcohol that will evaporate completely during the extraction process. There’s no risk of poisoning your patients with any harmful chemical leftovers.
A cannabis extraction process using a high-proof ethyl alcohol as a solvent produces a safe, potent and effective FECO. All you need to provide is the right strain of flower!
Ethyl alcohol dissolves away all the plant matter than you don’t want. What is left after evaporation, translates to only the most essential oils and active chemical compounds that the cannabis plant offers.
Using Extractohol for your FECO will help produce the highest quality oil, for yourself and your customers.
