I know some of you guys are just here for the porn so here's the money shot lol. First 4 pulls weighing in at about 3.6 grams total. I like how you can see each pull gradually becoming more and more impure
If I were going to purify that flight of Mescaline I'd leave #1 alone. It's good enough by itself & doesn't need purifying.
I'd chop #2 & #3 together with a razor blade & wash them in a purification column like Greenskeeper did.
#4 needs to be ground around in a frozen mortar & pestle under freezer-cold acetone before being vacuum filtered. Getting any crystalline mesc HCl out of that goo ball will be pretty tricky...
One hears that well purified mesc is the closest thing to good acid.
I repeat, PARTY AT HUBBIRDS' PLACE!
Damn it, when I was reading this thread as a guest on my phone I swore it was a more active thread date-wise
The quotes above are just so y'all get the notifications, hi y'all!
So I've extracted dmt maybe 20x now, and I always use cyb's salt tek, so I have the muscle memory built in for an a2b extraction and have a basic understanding of what's happening.
I'm so dizzy from reading a bazillion cactus extraction threads, so here's a few questions:
1) I gathered that there are people who prefer using powdered cactus, either pulverized by user or purchased that way, and another group that seem to be very anti-cactus powder, due to its sludge like consistency. Can anyone chime in on their preference and why?
2) Assuming that I proceed with fresh, the alkaloids are found only in the skins, correct? So one should use just the skins and discard the flesh/core?
3) Does one need the freezing stage if one is pureeing in a blender? I imagine the pureeing process will break the cell walls, but I could be wrong.
4) Can I use the materials on hand and essentially do the Cyb tek/crossed with Kash's tek? Meaning, I don't need two gallons of HCL acid that I'd get from paying cash at a box store or local pool supply. I have acetone, naphtha, crystalized citric acid, acetic acid (white vinegar 5%), NaOH, and Ca(OH)2
(I did sub lime for some of the lye in the middle of a dmt pull, not realizing that lime is hydrophobic or not very soluble in h2o and even though it took a few more days, I pulled white-ass xtals out of the freezer! More about that some other time)
4.5) Can one use acetone or naphtha as the main solvent for the mesc pulls? How does one know if one's acetone is anhydrous? Isn't all acetone anhydrous?
kk, that's all the questions that I can remember for now, thanks in advance for your attention,
