Cannabis extracts are more popular than ever. Check out the dispensary trends of the past few years and you’ll see that there are a lot of people moving from flower to an extract of some kind, usually hash, oil, or edible infusions like THC or CBD butter.
While infusions and other extracts from the dispensary are created in a processing facility, you can do your own extractions at home. Sound crazy? Far from it. Imagine the satisfaction of enjoying your own extractions, you’ll be the envy of your friends, not to mention you’ll be able to enjoy your extracts without the hassle (and prices) of a dispensary.
But what do you need to start doing your own extractions? You will need some equipment. Fortunately we’re here with some recommendations no matter what your price point.
