What are cannabis extracts? Cannabis extraction is every bit as complicated as the art of growing the plants used in the process. A cannabis extract is any oil-like substance that concentrates the chemical compounds like THC or CBD from the cannabis plant.
A cannabis extract is defined by the method through which it’s made. The people who do the extracting are called ‘extractor technicians’ and usually work for the cannabis grower. While concentrates like hash and kief are made with natural methods, extracts are defined by the fact that they’re made using a solvent.
