So he would probably not try this method because he would be affraid to waste a bunch of good pills, by messing up this process and soaking away all the good stuff with the bad stuff..
I am sure he is a moron!!
It's an extremely easy process, If SWIY can operate a coffee
machine he can do an extraction process.
SWIy can't use too much water, although using more than neccasary will mean waiting longer for it to evaporate. Microwave sounds like a bad idea, it'd probably destroy the product, SWIM
's never tried using an oven, but increasing heat will speed up the process tremendously, SWIM used a portable space heater. Also, increasing surface area speeds up evaporation. A pool of water with 100 square inches of surface area would evaporate 20 times faster than one with only 5 square inches of surface area.
1.) Crush pill into a fine powder, and dump powder into a shot glass.
2.) While stirring, slowly add water until nothing dissolves anymore.
3.) Stir some more to make sure anything that's water soluble has dissolved. Not everything will dissolve because not all of it water soluble.
4.) Rubber band a coffee filter over the stem of a funnel, and then pour the water through the funnel.
5.) When All water has passed through the filter, pour a little bit more water through the filter to assure that all water solubles are washed out of the filter. There should be non water soluble materials left behind on the filter paper.
6.) pour water into a dish to increase surface area, and leave out to evaporate over night.
7.) if there is still water in the morning, use a heat source to increase evaporation.
8.) Scrape up the film that was left behind on the dish. These scrapings contain only water solubles.
Also, if SWIY tries this with rubbing alcohol, make sure it's pure and doesn't contain water. If SWIY uses rubbing alcohol that is diluted with water, then materials that aren't soluble in alcohol but are in water will still make it through the filter, and the procedure would more or less be pointless.
It does take along time to evaporate, so it's not something to do when SWIY is in a rush to get high. And SWIY can always do one or two extractions with only a pill or two. Then if SWIY decides that it's effective and worthwhile, he could try it with larger quantities.
