During the last several years, extraction of the soluble components of hemp and marijuana has greatly improved. What was done on a very small scale several years ago is now being performed on a scale of 1x10^6 lbs. per month.
For some extraction techniques, glass has very useful advantages compared to stainless steel:
- Glass does not rust and can be easily incorporated into processes that are related to food and medicine without worry of metal leaching.
- Glass is optically clear, making it easier to judge reaction progress.
- Glass is also highly inert and thus can be used for a wide variety of chemical reactions.
- Glass can easily be cleaned with acids and bases.
