FOR 60 YEARS, THE MOST COMMON AND CHEAPEST METHOD TO EXTRACT CANNABINOID OILS (ALSO KNOWN AS “WAX”, “BHO”, AND “SHATTER”) FROM CANNABIS PLANTS HAS BEEN THROUGH THE USE OF PROPANE AND BUTANE.
IT WASN’T UNTIL RECENTLY THAT THE PUBLIC STARTED TO VOICE THEIR CONCERNS OVER THE RISKS AND HEALTH RELATED ISSUES THAT COULD BE CAUSED BY THE USE OF OILS THAT HAD BEEN EXTRACTED WITH PROPANE AND BUTANE.
PROPANE AND BUTANE ARE BYPRODUCTS OF PETROLEUM OBTAINED DURING THE REFINING PROCESS, OR THEY HAVE BEEN COLLECTED FROM THE CAVITY ON TOP OF PETROLEUM DEPOSITS. WHAT THAT MEANS IS THAT PROPANE AND BUTANE SHARE THE SAME HEAVY METAL PROPERTIES AS PETROLEUM.
EXTRACTORS USE SO CALLED “PURGING” METHODS TO ELIMINATE THE HEAVY METALS – AND THEN FURTHER PROCESS THE EXTRACTION BY WINTERIZING, BOILING, ETC. HOWEVER, PURGING AND WINTERIZING DOES NOT GUARANTEE TOTAL ELIMINATION OF HEAVY METALS. FURTHERMORE, SINCE SO MANY PRODUCERS RELY ON VARIOUS MODIFICATIONS TO THEIR PURGING PROCESSES WITHOUT ANY STANDARDIZATION, THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES THAT HEAVY METAL WILL BE SAFELY REMOVED FROM THE EXTRACTION.
Additionally, propane and butane extraction methods do not preserve the Terpene elements that are extremely important to medicinal, sensory, and taste qualities of the extraction.
Our goal from the start was to engineer and produce a gas – an organic gas – that can replace butane and propane while also preserving valuable Terpenes during the extraction process.
Our goal was to produce a gas that :
1. Extracts better than propane/butane,
2. Is not harmful to human health,
3. Is safe for the environment,
4. Preserves Terpenes & CBDs,
5. Eliminates or shortens the purging process,
6. Extracts oil that smells and tastes like the plant it was extracted from,
7. Is less explosive than propane/butane,
8. Is non-toxic and won’t contaminate
1. Will produce 2.5+ times more extract than propane and butane,
2. Won’t harm humans, animals, or the environment,
3. Preserves all terpenes (average terpene values of 12% - 30% using MZ12X),
4. Preserves the scent and taste of the original plants,
5. Is non-toxic, contains no heavy metals, and won’t contaminate the oil,
6. Is not as explosive as propane/butane.
In fact, MZ12X is the only product that is NOT required to use a “Closed Loop System” in the state of Colorado. Washington State is also planning to impose similar modifications to its recreational and medical marijuana laws.
MZ12X is flammable like butane, but it is safe to use in open air blasting using open tubes.
A number of pro-marijuana states are considering imposing limitations on marijuana use to CBD based products only. Should there be a change in Federal or State laws to ban THC infused wax, oil, etc., MZ12X will survive the changes because it is just as effective in extracting CBDs while still preserving the Terpenes
• Is designed to be an ENVIRONMENTALLY STABLE SOLVENT and is formulated from A NATURALLY OCCURING Organic gas.
• Has an explosion point that is much HIGHER than a petroleum based solvents.
• Has a Complete Evaporating Point (cep) or FULLY VANISHING POINT that is even lower than that of petroleum based products such as butane.
• Contains zero heavy metals.
• Is refined 12 times and is engineered to be MORE POWERFUL than butane
– it will remove any oil particles from the surfaces and grooves of the processing equipment that Butane may leave behind.
• Is biodegradable.
• Is safe for the environment.
• Is harmless to human, animals, and plants.
• Is odor free, color free, and residue free.
• Contains no heavy metals.
• Is absolutely non-toxic.
