Overview Of Extraction Grade Ethanol Products Sold In The USA
Today, in 2019,food grade ethanol (pure non-denatured 200 proof ethanol) is gaining popularity, hailed as the safest and most effective solvent for extracting a full-spectrum concentrate intended for medicinal and recreational use. The terms "botaniacal extraction" and "botaniacal processing" are often used interchangeably. The "Four Pillars Of Quality Botaniacal Extraction" involve cultivation, analytics, extraction and biochemistry. Lab Alley ethanol products sold in the USA are perfect for the extraction pillar in the equation. The extraction process converts target molecules in raw material into a usable product. Using ethanol as a solvent is very popular in the herbal and processing industry because it is relatively safe for edibles and oils that people consume every day.
Lab Alley sells organic solvents, organic chemicals, green solvents, bio-based solvent formulations, organic compounds, food grade solvents, natural solvents and bio solvents in bulk in the United States.

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.
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.
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..
Companies And Businesses In The United States Purchase Chemicals and Solvents From Lab Alley That Are Used For Botanical Analysis, Testing, Extraction, Processing, Refining and Analysis
In the USA Botanical industry solvents like ethanol are used to produce botanical oils from plant materials. Ethanol can be reclaimed and reused and/ or evaporated off. Botanical extraction and processing facilities in the United States buy high purity liquid solvents from Lab Alley to separate and collect specific molecules from plant material.
Lab Alley sells ethanol, pentane, hexane, heptane, isopropyl alcohol, methanol, acetone, chloroform, denatured alcohol, food grade ethanol, extraction grade ethanol, hydrogen peroxide, MCT oil, methylene chloride, ethylene glycol, propylene glycol, acetonitrile and other chemicals that are used in the expanding national botanical industry. Because the United States Congress passed the "Farm Bill" and individual states are enacted laws enabling industrial botanical production, Lab Alley has become the leading retailer wholesaler and distributor of solvents used for processing, extraction and refining of botanical material in the USA. Sales of botanical extraction equipment that use compatible solvents such as ethanol, heptane and hexane to remove concentrates and terpenes started skyrocketing after the provisions of the 2018 Agriculture Improvement Act that became law on December 20, 2018.

Testing firms in the U.S. check for microbial contaminants and heavy metals in botanical products. Testing laboratories in the USA check for the presence of mycotoxins caused by molds, perform pesticide residue analysis and screening, perform residual solvent analysis and use infrared analysis to verify the potency of botanical extract products.
HPLC testing labs in the USA buy solvents (polar, non-polar and medium-polarity) and solutions from Lab Alley such as phosphoric acid 30% solution, acetone, ethyl acetate (for HPLC mobile phase testing), HPLC grade chloroform, ACS grade diethyl ether (ether), heptane, hexane, ethyl acetate, methanol, pentane, HPLC grade acetonitrile and ethanol. For more information on HPLC/ UV bioanalysis methodologies, click here.
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 botanical 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 hexane are used to extract non-polar compounds from plant materials.
Heptane, ethanol and hexane are used by industrial botanical extraction facilities and botanical 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.
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 botanical extract the first step is to dry it out and then soak it in the solvent until it dissolves. Then the botanical 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.

Choose Between Two Types Of Extraction Grade Ethanol
Food Grade Ethanol For Extraction
Food grade ethanol is pure 100% ethyl alcohol. It is 200 proof. It is non-denatured. It is an essential chemical compound used in many plant processing facilities in the United States in 2019. Food grade ethanol is very safe, when properly used, for Botanical extraction and processing. It is approved for use in food and beverage processing facilities. Excise tax and HAZMAT fees may apply to these products.
Excise Tax High Purity Ethanol (Blended and Denatured)
The High Purity Ethanol Blend sold here by Lab Alley has one slight advantage over food grade ethanol. Although some botanical processors prefer to use food grade ethanol for use with more optimally efficient processing equipment, others prefer the high purity blend. Companies that want save money by avoiding paying excise tax fees buy a denatured high purity blend of ethanol that also safe for extraction purposes. Both types of extraction grade ethanol (200 proof and Blended) have different advantages and slight disadvantages related to price and quality. There are two blended versions, one with Hexane and one with Heptane. Specially Denatured Alcohols (SDA 2B-5 and SDA 2B-4) are denatured with N-Hexane and N-Heptane. Both are non-polar solvents used to denature 100% ethyl alcohol.

100% Ethyl Alcohol is sold in the USA by Lab Alley online here. Food Grade Ethanol and High Purity Denatured Ethanol normally ship the next business day after you place an order over the phone at (440-653-8151) or online here.
Advantages Of Using Ethanol At Botanical Processing Facilities
Advantages over other common extraction methods- like alternative solvents (butane, hexane, isopropyl alcohol), hydrocarbons and supercritical CO2- include high yields, increased terpene counts, reduced impurity levels, and lower energy use. Entrepreneurs are working with increasingly thinner margins within which they can develop quality extracts, oils, and edibles. One of the largest expenses is the excise taxes associated with undenatured ethanol used for botanical extraction, which costs an additional $27.00 per gallon.
How To Buy Tax Free Ethanol
A breakthrough alternative that avoids excise tax has been developed in Colorado. It is a solution comprised of 95% ethanol and 4.5% n-heptane – an equally effective solvent that is legally sanctioned in Colorado - after which many states have since modeled their legal structure.
Because n-heptane is unsafe for human consumption, this solution addresses two big problems:
- An ethanol and n-heptane solution cannot be safety consumed by a human being, and therefore is not subject to the federal excise taxes that are notoriously high. This legal distinction can take the purchase of a 55 gallon drum of ethanol, totaling over $2000, and lower costs by over $1400 per drum.
- N-heptane has a similar solubility parameter to ethanol, and only a slightly higher boiling point than ethanol (ethanol’s boiling point is 78.37C, where n-heptane’s is 98.42C), making it an easy addition to the extraction process requiring very few adjustments.
Companies using extraction grade ethanol report only slight changes to their extraction methods and processes. Regardless, it is crucial to put products produced with unfamiliar procedures through vigorous analytical testing to ensure the product remains safe for market consumption. While pure n-heptane is a legal solvent under many state laws, it is not a food grade chemical, meaning it must be completely purged from final products, and of course, cannot be used in tinctures for edible manufacturing. You can buy tax-free 55 gallon drums of this ethanol solution in our shop.

Non-polar solvents such as hexane are used for botanical extraction in the medical industry. Some medical polishing applications require greater purity and potency, so it is desirable to remove inactive ingredients like fats, lipids, and plant waxes, as well as any chlorophyll and other water solubles by using hexane to re-dissolve and filter compounds extracted from plants. For more information on polishing extracts, click here. Ethanol is also used in extraction processes. 95% HPLC Reagent grade hexane is used, along with water, to clean up or "wash" an alcohol extraction. Hexane must be evaporated, purged or scrubbed from botanical extractions for health and safety reasons.
