Butane Hash Oil (BHO)

Last updated: September 6, 2022

What Does Butane Hash Oil (BHO) Mean?

Butane hash oil (BHO) is a marijuana extract that is favored by cannabis users because of its high tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content. It tends to contain THC levels of 60 to 90 per cent. It is created by using butane as a solvent to extract the oil from dried cannabis plant material.

Butane hash oil is also commonly called honeycomb, honey, honey toast, wax, shatter, comb whip, and hash oil. When manufactured correctly, butane hash oil is fairly pure. Butane hash oil is used by vaporizing the substance with a pipe or vaporizer and inhaling the vapors.


Maximum Yield Explains Butane Hash Oil (BHO)

To make BHO, first the dried cannabis plant material is placed into a glass container such as an extraction tube. A screen is then attached into the bottom end of the tube holding the cannabis. The nozzle of a butane can is then placed into the top hole of the glass tube. The glass tube is held over a glass bowl while butane is pushed through the tube and the dried cannabis inside.

It generally only takes a minute of heating the plant material up with the butane before the golden-colored oil drips out of the glass tube and into the container. The oil in the glass container is then heated to evaporation levels by the butane and harmful substances from the oil are removed. The cleaned oil should be stored in an airtight container until time to use.
