Las Vegas, NV – Of the many exhibitors at the 2021 Marijuana Business Conference, HAL Extraction will be the only one showing a UL-Listed Extraction Booth. HAL’s CID1 rated Extraction Booths are the first and only extraction booth to date to achieve this safety certification.
UL, Underwriters Laboratories, is a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory approved by OSHA to perform electrical safety testing on household products and beyond. For well over a century since its founding in 1894, UL has been ensuring product safety. If you look around your home, chances are that you’ll notice the UL seal on at least one electronic product nearby.
A Need for Safety in an Emerging Industry
In the early days of cannabis legalization, plant oil extraction was a risky business. Fires and explosions— and resulting injuries—were common due to dangerous extraction methods using highly explosive solvents.
“I knew thousands of lives would be at risk if the effective but dangerous open blasting extraction method—using butane camping fuel and turkey basters of flower— didn’t modernize to the safety standards of a legal industrial process,” says Linn Havelick, Certified Industrial Hygienist, and founder of HAL Extraction.
Seeing the dire need for a safer plant oil extraction process in the nascent cannabis industry, Havelick designed and patented the HAL Extraction Booth.
