The infamous BHO syrup recipe is a popular way to enjoy cannabis. It’s also an easy and well-known way to make it into a potent form that can be used at any time of the day. The process for making this type of syrup involves butane, which is why it’s called “Butane Honey Oil”.
What is BHO Syrup
BHO syrup is a form of concentrated cannabis extract. BHO stands for Butane Honey Oil, which describes the process that creates it: using butane and oil to create a potent concentrate from marijuana flowers or leaves. This type of hashish can be made at home with just three ingredients: ice water (or if you’re on limited funds, cold tap water will do), high-quality pot (medium quality bud should work in a pinch), and some food-grade butane.
BHO oil (Butane Honey Oil) has been gaining popularity over the past few years as an alternative way for people to enjoy their marijuana without having to light up. Instead, you can mix BOH syrups into food like baked goods or desserts. You could even add it to your morning coffee! The possibilities are endless when it comes to how this stuff can be consumed.
How to make BHO (Butane Honey Oil) Syrup
To make BHO syrups, there are some materials and equipment that needs: – Container like a glass jar or coffee pot from which butane can be poured off without spilling into product; silicone sealant or plastic wrap so the container is airtight
Stainless steel bowl large enough for plant material plus at least another inch
Pyrex measuring cup to hold the solvent, for example, a large coffee mug or similar sized container made of glass or plastic. Dish soap is not needed if you are using stainless steel bowl and silicone sealant; dish soap can make your BHO syrup taste bad because it will mix with the oil that has been evaporated from plant material to form crystals (butane honey oil).
Making BHO syrup is not a difficult process, but it does require some patience. Here are the three easy steps to making this potent pot concentrate:
First, grind up your marijuana and carefully place it in a jar or other airtight container
Next – Fill the container with water and shake vigorously for about an hour
Last – Add food-grade butane using the dropper that came with your canister of butane (be careful!) until you reach the desired viscosity. A quick way to tell if there’s enough butane dissolved into the solution is when it turns from cloudy white milk-like liquid to light yellow honey color. Shake again for another few minutes before separating THC oil on top by letting it “settle.”
Now wait – The longer you let it sit, the more THC residue will be left behind. So if you’re using this for dabbing purposes and want to keep all of your product in one place, just make sure that the container is sealed tight so nothing evaporates while waiting.
Once it’s done sitting, pour off any remaining water or butane from the bowl (but not too much!), then put on gloves before breaking up chunks into a tray lined with parchment paper. Allow cooling until solidified then remove by scraping away gently with a knife or spatula-like butter cookie dough! Trim off any excess plant material first as well as around edges where baking soda spilled over onto the pan below; when cool, it’s easier to scrape away.
Once you’ve done this with the whole batch, let baking soda dry out before reusing by allowing it to sit open in a well-ventilated area for about two days where any remaining solvent will evaporate or be drawn outside.
When ready to process the next batch of BHO syrup (or trim), just repeat steps one through five until finished!
The risks of making and using BHO (Butane Honey Oil) Syrup
The risks of making and using BHO (Butane Honey Oil) Syrup are not just that you might blow yourself up or burn your house down. You can also hurt others if the butane in BHO is at a higher pressure than it should be, for example from faulty equipment. For this reason, use extreme caution when handling pressurized containers such as propane tanks to ensure they are compatible with airtight sealers like silicone seals or plastic wrap around the sealer
– make sure the gas tank screws on tightly before attempting to fill any pipes with liquid butane
– only ever store and transport carbon dioxide gas cylinders upright, never upside down
– keep all pathways leading away from where you’re working clear of any obstructions
– never use a lighter to check for leaks as this can cause an uncontrollable fire or explosion in some cases. Use soap and water instead, also do not smoke when trying to find out if you leak.
How much does it cost to make a batch of BHO (Butane Honey Oil) Syrup?
A batch of BHO syrup will cost anywhere from $50 to $150. This is a matter of how much butane and time you are willing to invest into making it. The more pure the gas, the better your yield will be (aka cooking for less time). Experiment with different concentrations of butane in order finds what works best for you!
Use BHO syrup to make a fruit bowl, as a topping for ice cream or gelato.
You can also use it in your coffee! Simply put the syrup on top of your cup and pour coffee over it. You will enjoy an extra sweet treat with every sip.
BHO (Butane Honey Oil) Syrup is a substance that has been used for years in marijuana edibles. It’s made by using butane to extract the THC from cannabis and then mixing it with honey or sugar. People use this type of syrup as an alternative way to ingest their medicine because they believe it’ll help them avoid any toxic chemicals like those found in other methods, such as smoking joints or vaporizing oil.
