Making extracts with solvents can be dangerous and even deadly. Depending on where you live, it may also be illegal. Unfortunately, there is no shortage of terrible information and advice on the Internet. Learning by watching YouTube videos or by trial and error is not something we recommend.
The best way to learn is from people who already know how to do it right (hint: if they don’t have a closed-loop extractor and a vacuum oven, they aren’t doing it right).
Closed-loop manufacturers can be good sources of information, and some offer certification programs or training when you buy equipment.
International Cannagraphic has a very active extraction forum where many industry thought leaders share information.
Our friends over at EdenLabs also have an active Extraction Community forum.
Remember that when it comes to Internet forums it’s important to remember that there’s always a mix of good and bad information and an investment in time is usually required to determine which is which.
