710SPIRITS® is a product that was designed to alleviate the burden of Federal Excise Tax from the Ethanol herbal extraction industry while using only the highest-grade materials to maintain the absolute best end product. We saw a growing problem in the industry and found a solution.
Many extractors prefer to use pure ethanol for a variety of reasons including high yields, larger terpene counts, low impurities, and environmental considerations. Pure ethanol is taxed heavily by the TTB as a byproduct of the days of prohibition. While using pure Ethanol has been the preferred method, the tax implications greatly restrict production capabilities.
710SPIRITS® is an Ethanol formulation that can be used for herbal extraction with no Federal Excise Tax, no permitting, and no additional record keeping.
710SPIRITS® is a blended product made with premium food/pharmaceutical quality 200 proof ethanol that has been denatured with a small amount of a High Purity industry standard solvent. Because the material is completely denatured, TTB regulations relating to sale and use of pure Ethanol do not apply.
710SPIRITS® can therefore be purchased and used without paying Federal Excise, obtaining a permit, or additional record keeping requirements.
710SPIRITS® Quality and Performance
The n-Heptane used in 710SPIRITS® is extremely high purity with very low levels of other organic solvents, heavy metals, and impurities. Blending this high purity n-Heptane with food/pharmaceutical grade Ethanol creates a solvent capable of producing an exceptionally clean, premium quality oil.
710SPIRITS® performs much the same as pure Ethanol in cannabinoid extraction. Several oil producers have successfully switched from pure Ethanol to 710SPIRITS® with only minor modifications to processes or procedures. Additionally, these producers have reported producing oils that have no detectable residual solvents or heavy metals.
Because Heptane has a higher boiling point than Ethanol, it may be necessary to heat the oil to a higher temperature and increase distillation times in order to completely remove the Heptane.
