Only had a small amount of naphtha left so no point to save it til next extraction so put equal amounts in each jug and will do one last pull.
Looks like there might be some goodies left

Next will be a xylene pull for any jungle spice as I need xylene for my upcoming Mescaline project.

Very, very pleased with the results;

10.23g total from 500g of bark.
And this is all very crystalline, not all goey yet.
May do a xylene pull and see what else I get.
(May even do another quick naphtha pull as the last gave me a more crystalline yield than I thought)
Despite having another K of this bark, I may want to buy another while the good times last.

hell man a 2 percent yield.

dont get much better than that..

I used to use way too much solvent, which caused the need for reduction for freeze precip or full evaporation otherwise.
I've been using less solvent and getting much better results.


Also, whenever in doubt, do another pull.
Used minimal solvent (20ml) and did another pull on the 3 extractions I had going and got this for my efforts....

Indeed, best bark since I used to get it from a vendor in Peru that used to be a sponsor here.


Had a small amount of naphtha left, just enough for one last pull. Turned out to be perfect as I got a little bit more but it's clearly pretty exhausted.
Will do a xylene pull to see if there's any jungle in it or not, then it will clean out our pipes lol.

Whole bunch of (not quite so) old-timers chiming in here ;)

 

Nice to see that 2% bark is still out there, and I'm digging your crystals SL!  

 

Happy to see any extractions at all around here, but definitely looking forward to your mescaline experiments. Don't leave me hanging...

Current play has been a little bestine work....
Interesting results, not 100% what I expected but interesting. May have to grab some more and do a side by side comparison of naphtha and bestine Rec.

Odd arrangement of pics.....
Will have a couple more tonight and will say what is what and so forth.

Well, one more day......

Did get the pics together for my Mescaline extraction thread. (Just need Xylene and that will begin)

Watch this space :)

TY!
Will take pics of it spread out on a plate as there's not much to see in the shot glass.

And I've ground my cactus chips and have my lye solution made.....
Will be starting that Mesc. Ext. shortly...

Another thread that got sidelined just a bit.
Vendor has been rock solid and the yields have been nice.
Mostly was looking for a new apt and securing same.

As anyone familiar with Entropy's thread on all the various types and consistencies of dmt extracted from natural sources will know that there are many and all have their own feel.

After working through just one kilo I've seen just about every one of them. Even have some of the reddish, jungle looking stuff.
May still do a xylene pull just to see what I get for my troubles.

Have many new pics and am doing a couple of larger, hot naphtha recrystalizations before I grab the bestine and do a final purification and prepare to set up shop in the new joint.
Watch this space mate!

Hey Shadowlord nice to see you’re still around!
Still doing the good work too I see.
I’ve had a lot of fun messing around with heptane and full spectrum extracts by fractioning them out at various temperatures to get everything from clear crystals to red crayons. A side benefit of having kilos of good bark I guess.
Small cactus extraction of my own going on right now will post any interesting results. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
Busy like everyone else keeping my chin above the shit.
Cheers!

I'm starting to wonder if it's ever safe to dump an extraction down the drain......
Now, I'm not complaining here but I have 4 jugs that I have suiting around since I first started working on the new bark source I stumbled on.
I had naphtha in the jugs but didn't expect much more as the yields were diminishing. R6
I put all the pulls in one glad and just evaporated it rather than try and freeze previo.
Imagine my surprise to find this! ;

20190317_165255.jpg 20190317_165240.jpg

Starting to think the bark continuesto break down and give off more goodies.

We'll see, I've got another month or so before I'll need to dump them. Love experimenting!

Wish my Mescaline extraction was going as well. Normally kick ass with cactus but this last attempt has humbled me a bit.
