Root Sciences, a family business run by two sets of brothers, is the worldwide leader in distillation equipment. We recently had the opportunity to sit down and speak to co-founder Nenad Yashruti, about their next level technology and the importance of high quality distillate when it comes to the future of infusing edibles. One of the first things he said was, “It’s the evolution of concentrates.”
You can eat it, you can dab it, you can vape it, you can rub it on your skin. Cannabis distillation is the process of purifying crude oil that was processed via extraction. Typical solvent extraction methods utilize a hydrocarbon like butane (BHO), propane (PHO), methane (MHO), carbon dioxide (Co2) and Ethanol (sometimes known as RSO which stands for Rick Simpson Oil). Each has their pros and cons. We often get the question from our readers whether or not RSO is better than distillate. To clarify for our readers, RSO would be the crude oil you distill to make a clear clean oil.
