At primo we’re continually doing research and building relationships with companies that are leading the way with innovation in the areas of legal healthy extraction processes and the best, most fresh product. With so many new techniques coming to the market as regulations change and producers get more creative all around the world, our job is to know what the safest, strongest and most effective ways to consume the mighty cannabis flowers is.
Our ultimate and only goal is to please our community and make sure that your individual needs are met. Nobody will be left behind.
This being said, almost all of the shatter and budder on the market these days come from closed loop butane extraction processes and here is what you should know about them:
How the butane extraction process works:
In an oversimplified but effective explanation, butane hash oil (otherwise known as BHO) is made by placing marijuana in some sort of holding container and pushing butane through said container so that the butane pulls all of the cannabinoids from the cannabis trimmings.
This liquid is then evaporated so that the butane leaves and the rest of the good stuff stays. Hopefully. This isn’t the most healthy process as you can tell. Hint number one, it uses butane. Is butane good for you? No.
Popcorn lungs. We suggest you look it up.
Butane is not something that should be ingested by the human body. Would you drink lighter fluid? No.
You can isolate THC or CBD to high levels but you’re losing a lot of the terps and cannabinoids during the extraction process.

Now we get to the good part, otherwise known as the happy ending…
At primo we have done a lot research over the years to understand what the best extraction process on the planet is. After consulting with industry experts in both the cannabis industry, cosmetic industry, and many other food industries, we feel extremely confident and invested in C02 supercritical extraction processes as we see this as the future of cannabis and here is why:
How the extraction process works:
The Supercritical Co2 extractions compresses and freezes gases into a cold-liquid state. The process is by no means exclusive to the cannabis industry. Infact premium coffees, fragrances and hop oil extraction for your beer utilize the same process. Supercritical Co2 is “green chemistry”.
It’s non-toxic, non-solvent and much more favourable to the environment. It gives producers maximum range and acute targeting of the whole spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes beyond just THC and CBD. So which is better? Butane or Supercritical? This one should be easy to answer.
First of all, there is no health concerns and that is a huge upside considering all of the health concerns that are married to butane extraction.
Supercritical give the use a full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes
You will taste and smell the beauty of that which you are vaping
You will experience new experiences of psychoactive effects

Here’s the thing, and it should be obvious now, when you break it down the couple dollars you may save buying butane extracted concentrates is hardly worth the price you may pay in the long run. In major US states the butane extraction process is banned due to the numerous factors we have shown you above.
At Primo our ethos is being committed to finding the very best: the best process for the best results so that you don’t have to worry about damaging your health.
