Does anyone have experience with Steam Extraction


I am just curious if anyone has experience in Steam extraction? We have an ethonal extraction system that creates a bubble hash before we turn into distillate and our Screens kept breaking over and over so we my lab techs want to move over to steam extraction.

I am not in the lab ever as i run a few other companies and live in the east coast and the lab is in colorado (Hopefully soon ill be out at the lab 24/7) but i just wanted to know if anyone has experience with stem extraction and what you could tell me or my techs about it.


Elaborate the extraction wanted
Biomass ?
Steam distillation i only use rarely for terpenes or poisons :grinning:Another hobby of mine


We extract Wet and dry biomass into Bubble Hash, So terpenes would be amazing to capture but we are looking to make the switch for our bubble hash needs.


One moment your goal is to extract cannabinoids by means of Steam to make bublle hash


Steam disstilation is a slow method of extracting anything of biomass
If done under vacuum very dellicate oils can be extracted
Like the real rosé oil
The oil comes allong with the solvent that passes treu in a vapor form
Even water can be used as solvent
But your end product is a liquid there is absolutly No biomass at the other side
Solvent and extracted oil or light volitile fraqtion


Like i said i am no lab tech. Sales person at heart.

I am just a partner in my new lab have equity and a little bit of say. They wanted me to find out if anyone has used steam extraction from biomass to bubble hash so im here asking.

Basically what you are saying it is best for terpenes and other oils so we wouldnt end up with a bubble hash.


You need someone else on here. I don’t think you have the necessary background to even be asking these questions. Ethanol extraction doesn’t produce bubble hash and if you tried to distill real bubble hash you wouldn’t get any kind of good result. Better question might be this challenge you think you’re having with the screens breaking; why don’t you ask about trying to fix that one because it should not be a problem.
