Ethanol 190 Proof

SKU 111000190DM55-1 Categories , Tags , ,

A.C.S. (American Chemical Society) and U.S.P. (United States Pharmacopeia) Grade Ethanol 190 Proof represents a near-pure form of ethanol containing 5% water. Suitable for both laboratory and pharmaceutical use, this grade of ethanol ensures a solvent of high purity, making it ideal for the extraction of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other essential compounds from the cannabis plant. Prioritized by professionals committed to producing top-tier cannabis concentrates, A.C.S. and U.S.P. Grade Ethanol 190 Proof is a trusted solvent in the extraction industry.

  • Cold Extraction Benefits: When used at colder temperatures, A.C.S. and U.S.P. Grade Ethanol 190 Proof can further improve its extraction efficiency by reducing the extraction of undesirable compounds, like chlorophyll.
  • Sustainability Aspect: Ethanol, when responsibly sourced, can be an eco-friendly extraction solvent due to its biodegradable nature.
  • Regulatory Adherence: Utilizing A.C.S. and U.S.P. Grade ethanol can simplify compliance with regulations, as many jurisdictions demand high solvent purity standards for cannabis extraction.



FAQs about A.C.S. and U.S.P. Grade Ethanol 190 Proof in Cannabis Extraction:

  1. What distinguishes A.C.S. and U.S.P. Grade Ethanol 190 Proof in terms of quality? A.C.S. Grade meets the purity standards set by the American Chemical Society for laboratory chemicals. In contrast, U.S.P. Grade conforms to the United States Pharmacopeia’s standards, ensuring its quality for pharmaceutical applications. This dual-grade guarantees a high-quality solvent with minimal impurities.
  2. Why is A.C.S. and U.S.P. Grade Ethanol 190 Proof utilized in cannabis extraction? The combined grade ensures a near-pure solvent, making the extraction process efficient and yielding a product with fewer contaminants. The presence of 5% water can also aid in extracting certain polar compounds.
  3. How safe is A.C.S. and U.S.P. Grade Ethanol 190 Proof for extraction purposes? Ethanol, in general, is recognized as safe (GRAS) for consumption in trace amounts. When appropriately purged from the final product, cannabis extracts made with this ethanol grade are considered safe. However, as with all ethanols, it is highly flammable and must be handled with care.
  4. What makes 190 Proof different from 200 Proof ethanol? While both are highly pure, the 190 Proof contains 5% water, making it slightly less pure than the 200 Proof. This water content can influence the extraction efficiency for certain compounds.
  5. Are there specific storage requirements for this ethanol grade? Given its flammable nature, A.C.S. and U.S.P. Grade Ethanol 190 Proof should be stored in a cool, well-ventilated area, away from any ignition sources. Ensure it’s kept in sealed containers to avoid contamination and evaporation.
