Why is my hash oil always very dark?

Every batch I make comes out dark green or brown.
I don't use butane ever, but try all the other solvents.
What is the trick?

Sadly for you, the secret is butane. BHO is just fucking good.

You are letting the solvent be in contact with the material too long.

Try a 15 second wash..

Not sure what process you are using, but heat darkens cannabis oil, as do contaminants.

How are you preparing the material, what alcohol are you using, how long are you soaking it, and how are you removing the alcohol?

I use alcohol and yesterday, I tried acetone for the first time. I normally put the trim in a jar, add the solvent, and shake for 30 seconds. Strain, and repeat with more solvent. I let it air dry in a flat pan.
With the alcohol, I get an oil that sticks to everything! The batch with the acetone looked just as green in the liquid form but once dried, was easy to roll in a sticky ball. The ball looks green, but not black!
Do you have any experience with naptha? I am not sure what the difference is.
From what I can tell, there is a lot of heated discussion over solvents and what is safe or not.
In my mind, acetone, mineral spirits and lacquer thinner are all the same!
I really appreciate your input!
