High Science: The Future Of Home Extraction Is Here

Tired of buckets of ice and screen bags? Tired of dangerous open air homemade butane extractions? Sick of crushing nugs with a curling iron?

When it comes to homemade concentrates there have only been two choices in the arsenal of the average amateur. One is bubble or ice hash, using screen bags and ice to make your own hash in a tedious process with varying degrees of quality. The other is the dangerous process of BHO extraction in a homemade setup that could potentially blow up your garage or apartment. Even with the innovation of Rosin extraction, the process is still time-consuming and inefficient, but no longer. The revolution of homemade concentrates is here. 

Mr. Extractor

Connoisseur Concentrates has the tabletop system to blow all others away. It is simple to use, fast, and safe. A truly closed-loop system of medical grade components, Argon welded for leak proof design, Mr. Extractor is the first passive device to rival the speed and efficiency of large and complex active systems.

Rather than high-pressure systems, it uses “Thermoflux” technology to yield extractions of up to 30% weight of the raw material! All you need is some dry ice, a few cups of alcohol, and your chosen herb. This machine can process up to a pound at a time! With a recovery time of 10-20 minutes, this machine is not only efficient but fast.

How it works

First, you will vacuum your device out with a simple vacuum pump. Once it is vacuumed, you will fill with laboratory grade butane through the safety valve into the top chamber.

Remove the material chamber, fill with your plant material, and place back into the machine. Tighten it down, and then vacuum your machine down again.

To extract, open the top valve to let the butane in, and let it saturate your material. After it has soaked for a few minutes, you will open the bottom valve and let the butane drop to the bottom.

To recover, you will add dry ice to the open area at the top of the machine, then slowly add alcohol to start the cryo process. It will chill the upper chamber, and create a vacuum. The butane will be sucked out of the bottom where your concentrate is forming. Add warm water to the bottom area to speed up the process.

Your extract is vacuumed clean in minutes, and all your butane is back in the top, ready for another run.

That’s the basics

In the time it has taken to read this article, you could be up and running your own extraction process. This machine is not only a state of the art device, it is also a functional piece of art. You can get 3-D laser etched face mods, different upgrades, custom chambers, and more.

The video below is a comprehensive guide to working Mr. Extractor, where you can learn the whole process in 15 minutes and see some of the amazing results at the end.

The science of extraction at home or on site at your grow or dispensary has never been simpler, or cooler. This machine gives me the chills just thinking about what I would want to put in it first.
