If say cold butane bound to something ( butane as a solvent ) is poured into warm water, then what happens. I don't believe anything will happen except the butane will boil off and what is in the solution will fall off to the bottom till the water is cooled completely but I'm just checkin with you guys to make certain that no other interactions will happen. Also will this method have less impurities then if it just boiled off in a warm water bath.

It may depend on what is dissolved.

So it probably shouldn't matter. Question is whether the process is not too fast and vigorous, as if it will be splashing you may lose part of your extract. Besides, you will get water solution of your extract, instead of (more or less) dry residue.
