LB this is a sample of what my FOAF got when using the above ratio- http://mycotopia.net...38&d=1267906552
to be exact that was-(4 drops of 31.45% hcl to 120ml of dh20)
this photo is right after the water evaporated, no acetone or iso wash ect..
am I understanding correctly that the salt that would be made in this way would be a mix of all alkaloids present in the cactus, and will not isolate mescaline only (he hopes to get the mix, not mesc only)?
No you will not get a full spectrum by salting with a dilute hcl aqueous solution.
however when gassing with hcl it's alot easier to get a "better" spectrum... having h20 in the mix seems to make room for lots of fats (impurities other then alks) making it hard to get a good product not all f'd up with wasteful impurities.
This is a sample from a "gassed" NP alkaloid rich solution- http://mycotopia.net...39&d=1267906552
It's not perfect as the gas was not completly dry,
however a bio assay deffently proved that it contained more alks (still not a full spectrum) and had "alot" more punch then the previous sample that was titrated.. even the sanchez that you get from titrating doesnt seem to have these alks, but in my FOAF opinion cleaning up the gassed mesc with chilled cold anhydrous acetone then again with chilled anhydrous 99% iso makes the best most powerful extract he has ever done..
If you want a more full spectrum extract there are better ways to go, however the ending result will not be as crystaline. depending on what cacti your working with I would suggest different teks to take advantage of what that specimen has....
but my understanding is that it is also easy enough to recrystallize sulfate salts to remove excess H2SO4. I think it is a hot water/cold water reX, no?
To my understanding no, not with just h20, you would need to perform a dual solvent rextal....
Then of course you wont want to wash it with acetone as you will loose some of the alkaloids that are soluble in acetone. this is my intention in my next extraction, hopefully a more "Colorful" experience.
In my FOAF experience this is not desirable, it doesnt pull a full spectrum and having those other alks that solute into the acetone make it kinda of weird (sleepy), much better to get rid of those imo.... dont get my wrong I love nothing more then working with the spirit/synergy of the cactus but it's just weird lol..
