Good looking, bro! So, tell me, A/B worth it? FOAF personally likes them the same journey wise. I have noticed though the A/B visuals seem to last longer, at least for me.(after slamming back into my skull):headbang:
Good job on the write up. MD
No comments yet on biological differences between the extracts, they're still with Freddy on the sloop in international waters. Honestly though, I don't expect much difference between them. Let it be known that I am a DMT lightweight, 20mg of white crystal is more than enough to send me to Eastwood's "Geometricfractopiaville."
wow. you convinced me to never do stb again lol
so much more rewarding in a/b obviously. just look at the difference in yeild and prettyness lol
fuckin a man.
phineas you dog you :lol:
Hooray, an A/B convert! Before you convert fully though, the yield data so far is not complete. Freddy expects at least another 0.8g to come out of the STB solvent when it is frozen again after another reduction. So far the experiment is lining up quite nicely with the hypothesis...
The prettyness factor is why Freddy loves A/B, plus the chemistry of extraction is just as much fun (if not more! :)) as smoking the final product! :lol: He plans to fully evaporate both solvents eventually as well, just to see what kind of weirdness doesn't precipitate, and for accurate gravimetric analysis.Future plans:
1. Reduce and freeze both solvents again in an attempt to boost yields.
2. Evaporate both solvents completely after freezing and weigh the resulting goo.
3. Carry out and evaporate one more 100mL naphtha pull on both solutions, just to make sure all the goodies have been pulled out.
4. Carry out and evaporate a xylene pull on both solutions to see what kind of "jungle spice" can be pulled out of "spent" A/B vs STB extractions.
5. Evaporate the solvent used to defat the acid phase of the A/B, just to show what kind of nastiness is pulled out during defatting.
Thanks to everyone for their help in making this experiment possible!

Even more nit-picking :)
