Extraction Methodology Class

Level 2: Basic Extraction Refinement

(This class will be a requirement for our future Level 3 Extraction Class)

This will be a 2-3 hour class at American Beauty Garden Center where we will be demonstrating the foundation of extraction polishing and refinement. We will be taking the BHO (Butane Hops Oil) yielded from our Level 1: Hydrocarbon Extraction class through winterization, filtration, and distillation. Students will follow along by filling out the Standard Operating Procedure log and will be free to ask questions during a Q&A session at the end of the class.

We will also be covering:

  • Proper maintenance and storage of equipment

  • Methods for safe handling and storage of solvents

  • Basic principles behind steam distillation

Ticket Price for the class is $250 prepaid

No refunds for no show

Class will be limited in size, so please sign up ASAP if you are interested.

You can sign up in-store or over the phone at 704-334-8651.  See you there!

Good Day Beautiful Gardeners!

“April showers bring May flowers.” We should definitely have some gorgeous flowers come May! What’s new here at ABGC? We have brought a new nutrient line onboard, “Emerald Harvest”. This line of nutrients uses plant-based proteins and you can choose either a 2-part or 3-part base with a core of 4 supplements. The Emerald Harvest line is specifically designed for hydroponic use. We have been testing it out on some zinnias in our grow room at the store and it is definitely a heavy hitter! (click on our Instagram Link to see the pictures!)

We have also introduced a new Customer Loyalty Program. You can sign up in-store (just talk to any of the staff) or online here. This program will keep track of the points you earn with each purchase, and these points can be used for special discounts and offers.

Don’t forget about our Hydrocarbon Extraction Class-Level 1 on Sunday, May 7th at noon. This is a repeat of the class we had in March; it was so popular we decided to do it again! Sign up for class in-store, online here or over the phone. This will be a 3-4 hour long class here at the store where we actually run an extraction of hops in a closed loop system while explaining the process as we go.

We had a great Spring Sale last week! Special thanks to Joe from Fox Farm, who hung out all day to help answer questions for our customers. Keep in touch for details on upcoming events, and keep growing!
