Here's a couple of pics on white background - the first is taken with the camera flash, the second is taken using a cold white cfl lamp:

Excellent thread, man! :eusa_clap

Very methodical approach, hopefully there will be some product left for a bioassay when we meet.

longtime no login- hi everyone. I have some very nice amber- golden colored oil of a "Budder" type consistency, it's very fire- sativa dominant. Now all I have is a bong and screens,and this brings me to my question- in your opinion what is more effective using 2 screens or 3, screens with herb ash on top? to all of your who have enjoyed oil with a bong and screens I would like to know what you think works best as I DO NOT want to waste. Good to be back!!!(not trying to hijack thread or get off topic, saw this oil thread,thought it would be a good place)

LunarSageMan, I can't answer your question.

2 purification steps:
1. Dewaxing

Dissolve the extract in a minimum of room temperature acetone. Place this acetone in a freezer and watch as bunches of white wax precipitates out. Filter the acetone off the wax (save the wax for your surfboard) and evaporate.

2. Activated Charcoal

Dissolve the now dewaxed extract in hexane. Add a spoonful or two of activated charcoal, shake it around and filter. Then evaporate and reclaim the hexane.

Your extract is now pure.

Would it be possible to combine the de-waxing and charcoal stages and filter the solvent off both the wax and charcoal at the same time?

Possibly, but I wouldn't recommend it. The de-waxing portion of the process makes use of the solubility rules in that it only works because the wax is much less soluble in cold acetone than warm acetone.

That same solubility conundrum might make the charcoal filtration problematic, but I'm not sure if it would or not. Give it a shot and report back, won't you?

Welcome to Mycotopia!


So far I used warm then cooled ISO, a coffee filter half filled with activated charcoal and poured through that 5-6times (still VERY dark) while the ISO was warm 47deg C and cooled to room temp the fridge then freezer, with about 1/4 cup activated charcoal floating in bottom.

Admittedly this was a "second pass" in fact it was a "long" 2-4 minute second wash and more ISO to rinse after it was almost done dripping. Before this experiment it smoked pretty well, not harsh, but a bit low potency for oil, I

This was an experiment to see what I might get.

I tried a naptha extraction for the first time (usually iso), and there seems to be something left in the oil. Im not sure if the glass had something in it that i didnt clean out firts or if its from the naphtha. would a water wash maybe seperate it out?

any help is appreciated
