Here at Black Fin we have been hard at working developing the Cryogenic-Ethanol Extraction (CECO) method to bring you the best way to get a flavorful, high percentage THC product. And we’ve had much success. We’ve been able to make some of the tastiest extracts around using a completely legal, organic, and safe method.
Cryogenic Ethanol Cannabis Oil, or CECO for short (and easier), is the newest trend to be taking the stage in the Cannabis community. And of course, we at Black Fin are always on the front line bringing you the future. When a new product comes to light, the first thing everyone asks is “what is Cryo-Ethanol Cannabis Oil anyways?”
The “C” in CECO cryogenic means cold, super cold. Around -70C type cold. And the entire process has to be done at these extreme low temperatures, it’s basically like working at the North Pole without getting to work inside Santa’s workshop. The “E” in CECO is referring to the solvent that is used to extract the THC from the Cannabis. At Black Fin we make our own in-house 100% ethanol, so you know that the CECO coming from us is 100% natural, organic, and controlled by us.
We take the Cannabis that we receive from local Vancouver Island federally licensed craft growers and “rinse” it in in a series of complex tubes and reactors with our solvent to extract all the goodness from the plant (THC, cannabinoids, terpenes) and none of the badness (water, chlorophyll, carbon). Then, using state of the art high grade ovens, and cold purge vacuums, we remove the solvent, leaving us with a concentrate that we can now use to make shatter, budder, THCa diamonds, or…who knows what else we will discover!
The thing is we haven’t gone and reinvented the wheel; we saw something that wouldn’t “fit” under the new regulations, so rather than starting from scratch we found a way to redesign an already existing process. We took your favorite cannabis extracts, changed one key ingredient, and the outcome is a new legal, organic way to produce all the concentrates you’ve known and loved. And the best part of all of this, the experience stays the same, you are still left with terpy, flavorful high quality dabs.
