Learn About Tinctures On Wikipedia

A tincture is typically an extract of plant or animal material dissolved in ethanol (ethyl alcohol). Solvent concentrations of 25–60% are common, but may run as high as 90%. In chemistry, a tincture is a solution that has ethanol as its solvent. In herbal medicine, alcoholic tinctures are made with various ethanol concentrations, 20% being the most common.

Other solvents for producing tinctures include vinegar, glycerol (also called glycerin), diethyl ether and propylene glycol, not all of which can be used for internal consumption. Ethanol has the advantage of being an excellent solvent for both acidic and basic (alkaline) constituents. A tincture using glycerine is called a glycerite. Glycerine is generally a poorer solvent than ethanol. Vinegar, being acidic, is a better solvent for obtaining alkaloids but a poorer solvent for acidic components. For individuals who choose not to ingest alcohol, non-alcoholic extracts offer an alternative for preparations meant to be taken internally.

Learn About Extracts From Wikipedia

An extract is a substance made by extracting a part of a raw material, often by using a solvent such as ethanol or water. Extracts may be sold as tinctures, absolutes or in powder form.  The aromatic principles of many spices, nuts, herbs, fruits, etc., and some flowers, are marketed as extracts, among the best known of true extracts being almond, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, lemon, nutmeg, orange, peppermint, pistachio, rose, spearmint, vanilla, violet, rum, and wintergreen.

What Is A Plant Extract?

A plant extract is a substance or an active with desirable properties that is removed from the tissue of a plant, usually by treating it with a solvent, to be used for a particular purpose. Extracts may be used in various sectors of activities : Food and functional properties for foodstuffs (antioxidant, texturizer, etc…), Processing aids, additives – chemical replacers, pharmaceutical for therapeutic properties - preventive and/or curative – cosmetic for functional properties for beauty and well-being, etc..

Chloroform Is Used As A Solvent

Chloroform was formerly used as an inhaled anesthetic during surgery, however, the main use of chloroform in USA industry is as a solvent. Around the glove, chloroform is also used in pesticide formulations, as a solvent for fats, oils, rubber, alkaloids, waxes, and resins, as a cleansing agent, grain fumigant, in fire extinguishers, and in the rubber industry.  It is used as a solvent in organic chemistry, in photography and in making dyes, drugs and pesticides.

It is not illegal to have laboratory grade chloroform in America. According to U.S. regulations, it is legal to buy chloroform online from Lab Alley.  Chloroform should be used with exteme caution because it can be harmful and fatal in someone is exposed to extremely large doses for an extended period of time. 

As of September of 2019, most of the chloroform sold by Lab Alley in the United States is used in homes, pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities and laboratories to manufacture botanical oils, nutritional and dietary supplements and other chemicals. Chloroform-assisted phenol extraction is a popular application of chloroform in the USA.  It is useful for the extraction, separation and purification of alkaloids (such as morphine) of pharmaceutical importance from plant materials. It is also a reagent for certain chemical reactions.

About Uses Of n-Heptane In The Botanical Industry

n-Heptane is a paint solvent and rubber cement thinner. Lab Alley sells a high purity (99.9%) grade of n-heptane. Heptane is widely used in laboratories in the United States as a non-polar solvent. In some Botanical processing labs, heptane is used to replace hexane. Heptane and methanol are often used for herbal wax extractions. Although ethanol is the most common solvent used in large scale Botanical extraction and processing operations, hexane and heptane are also used at these facilities.  Organic non-polar solvents such as hexane are used to extract non-polar compounds from plant materials.

Heptane is used by industrial botanical extraction and processing facilities in the USA. Some botanical extraction equipment used at these facilities are compatible with ethanol, heptane and hexane. Heptane in 55 gallon drums are sold online by Lab Alley and are used by large scale industrial agri-processing facilities.

How 200 Proof Ethanol Completely Denatured With Heptane Is Used In U.S. Botanical Industries

Ethanol denatured with heptane is a high purity extraction grade. Ethanol and n-heptane are non-polar solvents. This extraction solvent is ideal the production of "crude botanical extracts". Crude extract is an unprocessed material that must be refined by Botanical processors to produce final products sold to dispensaries and consumers. Crude extracts are produced using ethanol extraction or CO2 extraction. End products such as vape pens and edibles have varying extraction requirements. Note that heptane should be purged from final botanical products and crude botanical extracts.

Heptane is used in the USA to dissolve or remove waxes/ lipids during the extraction process. Because heptane is nonpolar it is a good solvent for extraction. Heptane’s boiling point is around 209°F, so it is important to properly purge the heptane before consumption. When processing plant materials the first step is to dry it out and then soak it in the solvent until it dissolves. Then the extract can be collected from the solvent. Next is the purging process, because hexane is not pressurized the purging process may take longer than using ethanol denatured with hexane. But using heptane as a solvent has its benefits. It creates a more potent and flavorful botanical oil. Lab Alley provides fast shipping in the USA. You can order heptane for botanical processing facilities in a 55 gallon drum for $900. Heptane is also used to remove botanical resin concentrates, as a "wash" for butane hash oil/ butane honey oil (BHO) products and for recrystallization processes.  

Butane Hash Oil, or BHO, is a botanical concentrate (extract) produced using butane as a solvent.  Because of its effectiveness, pricing over CO2 extraction and purity - butane hash oil extraction is a popular process for manufacturing botanical concentrates in the United States. Consumers in the USA purchase vape pens that contain botanical concentrates which are evaporated during the inhalation process. "Evaporating" botanical concentrates by using vape pens is termed "dabbing" by some consumers in the U.S.

      What Is Hexane Used For In The Botanical Processing and Extraction Industry?

      Hexane can be used as a solvent and a wash in the botanical extraction process. n-Hexane is used to extract oils and other compounds from plants and seeds. Hexane is used to remove chlorophyll from plant materials and extracts. The hexane extraction is a process frequently used in food industry and soyfood processing. Hexane is a popular solvent for extraction of oils, chlorophyll, bioactive compounds and other constituents of plant foods. Hexane removes undesirable constituents from plant foods, Botanical. Buy hexane for Botanical oil extraction from Lab Alley online in the USA.  In solvent extraction, n-hexane is used as a solvent for its attributes such as simple recovery, non-polar nature, low latent heat of vaporization (330 kJ/kg) and high selectivity to solvents.  Hexane has been widely used for oil extraction because of easy oil recovery, narrow boiling point (63–69 °C) and excellent solubilizing ability.

      It is important to understand the safety and efficiency of various Botanical Extraction methods.  Hexane is highly flammable and explosive. It is important to use hexane in the correct environment and take the necessary safety precautions. Hexane should be used in a well-ventilated area or outside. People use hexane to produce a final product that is much more potent than the original herb. When using hexane for Botanical processing it allows the user to isolate more desirable compounds than the herb provides freshly harvested. The purpose of using hexane or other solvents such as ethanol, pentane or hexane are to reduce the plant in solution then remove the chemicals. If done incorrectly the oil and compounds can remain full of chemicals that could be harmful to the human body. In order to purge hexane from the finished product there are two options; heat and vacuum using thin film techniques or washing it in food grade ethanol. Hexane is ideal for dissolving the waxes and lipids during the extraction process. It is important to use a good grade of hexane or distill the hexane before using it for the extraction. This will produce better results in the end. You can purchase hexane for Botanical processing and extraction at Lab Ally.
