Solvent & Solventless

“Solvent” refers to extraction methods that use chemical solvents (e.g., ethanol, hydrocarbons) to extract cannabinoids and terpenes. “Solventless” refers to extraction methods that do not involve the use of chemical solvents, relying instead on mechanical separation techniques (e.g., dry sifting, ice water extraction).
