Welcome to Lighthouse Sciences.


What is BHO (Butane Hash Oil)?

BHO is the product of the Cannabis extraction method referred to as “blasting”. It is the cleanest form of Cannabis extraction. Due to its low boiling point the extracted oil is purged of the residual solvent without heating the terpenes, which allows for a more flavorful product and a more complicated entourage effect.


Is it safe to consume?

The FDA has imposed a limit of up to 0.02% of the total oils in food to be TBHQ  (tert-Butylhydroquinone).


“Butane, as a food additive, can usually be found in the form of TBHQ. It is used in crackers, potato chips, microwave popcorns, chicken nuggets, butter, some fast foods, varnish, lacquer, and resin. TBHQ prolongs the shelf life of a food. It is also considered safe to consume as long as it is consumed in a low level.”



Per the Medical Marijuana Control Program (MMCP) in Ohio the safe limit for residual solvent including butane is 5000 PPM (parts per million)  .005%

Why choose BHO extracted Cannabis?

“Butane hash oil (BHO) extraction and resulting products offer certain advantages over traditional whole-flower buds or other extraction methods. Compared to solventless concentrates like kief or rosin, BHO concentrates come in a wider range of consistencies, higher potencies, and can contain a fuller botanical representation of the strain’s original profile. 

BHO extraction equipment can delicately strip marijuana’s intoxicating compounds from the plant without damaging the flowers’ volatile terpenes. BHO concentrates like live resin or terp sauce are able to retain a higher-than-normal terpene count giving it a richer and fuller flavor compared to concentrates without those aromatic terpenes.”
