    I do not want to sound presumptuous, but my proprietary machine is awesome. It is cheaper and more efficient than any other manufacturers' that I have come across. We can vary the size of the extraction vessel and pumps, but my current rig holds approximately 2-4 lbs. I can do ten runs a day by myself. It takes 1.5 minutes to get supercritical and start cranking. Its fully automated, except for filling the extraction vessel with herb, and connecting the co2 bottle. It will run any pressure between 1000psi and 5000psi. It is a laboratory grade piece of equipment. I sell, lease and rent the machines.

      Do you know of a do it yourself system more up to date? We stopped exploring passive extraction, once we understood its limitations, and so haven't kept track of bright new innovations that contradict that position. I've seen developments in small SCFI CO2 units using pumps that are of note, but are not DIY. GW

      I think that depends on "best for what"? There's the usual Apeks, Waters, etc machines but I recently read about new startup in California that seems to be doing innovative things with high-pressure machines (up to 5,000 psi): Applied Extracts (www.appliedextracts.com). Can't hurt to talk to them I guess.

    The information here gives me a good start for my research on this subject. What I am looking at isquality of product is being produced both as a consumer and a possible business model. In my opinion a good diagnosis starts with good product, that's how we get quality.

    Congratulations on your purchase! First, don't over tighten anything and don't pack the tube. Make sure what you run is 100% dry. I typically run one tube of high quality stuff without decarbing to get the terpenes while running at 1100-1500 psi 45c. Then 3-4 runs of decarbed material to get all your psychoactives. You're most potent extract are going to be after decarbing (baking at 250 degrees for 45min) and then running your ground up material in a full but not packed tube At 3200 psi and 60c or 3600psi and 55c you'll get almost pure THC-A jelly. Now, you'll want to winterize with alcohol to remove the wax and lipids. I've also heard from another Super C user that you can skip the winterization process by using a centrifuge.

    1. Skunk Pharm Research,LLC

      Since decarboxylated material shouldn't have any THC-a left over, wouldn't the jelly ostensibly be in the phenolic diterpenoid state? IE: THC delta 8 and 9.

      Skunk Pharm Research provides information as a public service, but sells no equipment. To your question, the lowest cost per gram to extract quality meds in volume that I've found, is closed loop butane extraction. Sales@pharmgold.com is the company now building the WolfWurx Mk IVC and VC designs by Graywolf. What we found with our passive SCFE CO2 extraction, is that it extracted over the whole heating/pressure curve, so we lacked precise pressure control. CO2 is a small molecule, so it requires a lot of flow to extract effectively. Without pumps to recycle existing CO2, more than our passive system volume. Our passive test sled lacked the ability to recover the different fractions on decompression, which active systems make effective use of. An experienced SCFE CO2 consultant, not employed by a specific equipment supplier, whom can elaborate on those issues chapter and verse is Paddy at: scfepatrick@gmail.com GW

        Mike, if you are still looking for SCFE Unit contact me. Our units outperform anything on market of similar size and most companies 20liter units at a fraction of the cost. Plus they produce a final product on par with hydrocarbon extraction in both potency and flavors. Without having to winterize.

    The law does not allow for any type of bho extraction without a mips(marijuana infused product) license anymore. Even closed loop. They made it a class 2 drug felony. Which can carry a sentence of 8-24 years. We designed our co2 system similar to Edens or apeks. It uses a plc with custom and adjustable programs. A heater pump and chiller. If anyone has any info about using co-solvents, I would greatly appreciate it.

        There should be any issues with just buying the system as essential oils from many different kinds of plants are made with this method. The vanilla I use is like that and one of the best on the market.

      If it's Co2 extracted product then it doesn't come under restrictions for butane extractions. One of the things I love about Co2 over N-butane, cleaner, safer & legal. ;) Cheers!

        CO2 may not be combustible, but 5,000-10,000 psi is not "safer" Also, where is the evidence that a few micrograms of Butane is "unhealthy?" I don't know why people want BHO or CO2 oil. I get just as high hit for hit from straight flower

          Even at the higher pressures it is not as much of a hazard because nothing would ever explode with CO2, it might rupture, but never explode like butane Even small vessels when ignited will explode, causing casualties and damage. Also when butane is used, it often leaves behind heavy metals, which cannot be removed. These have been found in Colorado, and they are going through a huge recall. In 2014 Americans used 119K barrels of butane a day, nearly doubled since 2007! Butane hash extractors, though they make beautiful product, are creating a devastating impact on the Environment. This is a huge issue, and it is being overlooked for the sake of making money. Not only are the amounts being used a problem, it's also a problem when butane is not burned and it is released into the atmosphere it reacts with the ozone layer and damages it. So no, not all extracts are created equal.

    Hey I love your site. A long time friend and I just built our first co2 SFE. I have two closed loop butane units as well. Law changes in my area forced us to move over to co2. I have been running bho for a long time, and am wondering if there are any tricks or tips that you'd have for co2. I am based out of colorado. If you ever find yourself here, then please come hang out and we can mess around with the machine and burn one.
