Is it possible to do clean CO2 hash/oil extraction at home (without having to be an engineer)?
As it turns out, this is indeed possible.
The Super C the world’s first tabletop at home supercritical co2 botanical extractor.
Doesn’t that sound like fun?
Even though this isn’t a closed loop system, it’s still quite effective at extracting oil from your cannabis material.
In the above video, they run through the entire extraction process.
Essentially, there’s a chamber that you fill with material and then seal.
Liquid CO2 is then pumped through that chamber at extremely high pressure for about an hour.
In the end, you are left with a mixture of CO2 ice and really pure hash oil.
The low down
While this is technically an “At home”/DIY CO2 extractor, it isn’t really a product that most people would be comfortable using.
Even if you look past the price of around $3000, most people probably won’t:
- know where to find liquid CO2
- feel comfortable working with liquid CO2
- know how to safely work with liquid CO2
That being said, if you know what you’re doing and have the money, this is probably a great product for you.
If you’ve used the Super C or have any thing to share, please chime in via email or comment.
