San Diego County Releases Butane Hash Oil Study

Various forms of marijuana hash have been in use since Egyptian times.  In the 1960’s it is believed that major hashish production and distribution started in Morocco.  A new method of extracting THC from marijuana has caught on like wildfire in the last few years, Butane Hash Oil (BHO) or some call it Butane Honey Oil (BHO).  This is a method where flammable butane gas dissolves the THC resin and concentrates it when the butane boils off.  That is the problem with this dangerous method.  The flammable butane vapors accumulate low to the ground and can find ignition sources causing an explosion.  These explosions have severely burned the BHO lab operators.  Not only do the lab operators get burned this often results in major damage to the dwelling structures where this BHO lab was in operation.  Often innocent people are involved in these incidents as the fire spreads.
