Cannabis consumers looking for potent intact terpenes are increasingly turning to solventless products since solventless extracts give the user a more “authentic” cannabis experience than other extracts. Because no additional ingredients are added to the cannabis during the extraction process, solventless cannabis products are generally considered safer for consumers.
At Klone Colorado, we work with clients to choose the most effective products for their end consumer. With dozens of strains to choose from, our team can help to recommend which clones will yield the best results for your project.
What is Solventless Cannabis Concentrate?
Rather than using solvents to extract cannabinoids, solventless extracts use heat, pressure, ice, or water instead, leaving behind no chemical residue. Cannabis consumers are increasingly favoring solvent-free concentrates. Solventless cannabis concentrates give the user an experience that closely resembles smoking or vaping flower.
Common cannabis products made using the solventless process include rosin, dry sift kief, freeze-dried hash, bubble hash, and more.
What Genetics Work Best for Solventless Extraction?
Since the goal of solventless extraction is to produce a product that retains the essence of the cannabis plant it’s made from—the terpenes, for example—it’s important to choose high-quality cannabis from the start. Strains that produce large, resinous flowers are best, specifically those with robust trichomes.
Capitate-stalked trichomes—which are the largest trichomes found commonly in cannabis—can be seen with the human eye, and have a long stalk topped by a bulbous head. Strains featuring these robust trichomes are considered the best for the solventless process. Some examples include:
- Cake strains (e.g. Truffle Cake, LA Kush Cake)
- Pie strains (e.g. Sherb Cream Pie)
- Tropicana strains (e.g. Tropicana Cherry)
- Meat Breath
