    has anyone tried or know anyone who has tried to make weed extract like they do with salvia?



    take an ounce

    set aside 1/4

    soak and strain the 3/4 remainder in ipa/acetone (like for oil)

    boil/evaporate the ipa/acetone to the point where you have just enough
    to soak your 1/4 that was set aside and evaporate the remaining
    ipa/acetone

    now you have a 1/4 of weed that is the potancy of 1oz

    You can also use the Butane hash-oil technique described another place in this forum, works great and takes no time. The above mentioned method should probably work too, but I haven't tried it.

    the butane method produces oil. I have oil and I perfer the high
    to bud. What I was hoping was that the reminader of the dried
    bud/leaf would soak up the THC in the ipa. Then dry the THC rich
    gerb and smoke. The butane produces too thick of a cubstance to
    absorb in the dry product.





    BTW is this anything like how they make hash?

    No, hash is usually made by sieving the resin from the buds. You can buy hash-makers pretty cheap, it's just a plastic container with a sieve in the middle, you put the weed above the sieve, put the container in the freezer for 30 mins and then shake it. Resin will drop underneath the sieve for you to collect.


    Hash oil is quite thick, no matter how you make it, a friend of mine made oil with acetone and it was slightly thinner than My butane oil. It might work, try it. Worst case scenario is you'll end up with something that's difficult to smoke in a joint.Edited by: sunyata

    If you make oil with the butane method, you can smoke it with a hollow pen above aluminum foil, this gives a very small amount of smoke(that nevertheless itches like hell) that will make you very,very high.

    yea hot knives have given me a high like nothing else, they take it to
    another level... Me and my friends made the lightbulb vaporizer last
    night and i tried it this morning and it gave me a nice high, but still
    different...

    yeah one of the things I understand is hard to get right is the temp
    you don't want to burn the weed just vapo it. Even still at
    proper temp I think I still perfer smoking it. Damn those knives!

    i also prefer weed or good hash instead of oil but i also tried the
    butane-extracted oil and extracts made with isopropanole or naphta.

    the butane method produces a really clean, honey-coloured oil which
    contains 60 to 80% canabinoids. other extracts also contain chlorophyll
    (e.g. isopropanole) or other oils and waxes (ether for example).

    if your starting material is good and its not to much i recommend the
    butane method, otherwise i'd use another solvent, because butane is
    simply to expensive.
