    Just thought I would show Swims results of a 24 hour soak in 91% isopropyl alcohol.

    Swim did 2 more pulls

    2nd pull was another 24 hours and resulted in about the same amount as the first pull.

    3rd pull was sitting for about 30 hours and results were about a 3rd of the first pull.

    So swim has concluded that 3-4 days max will get all the goodies out.

    The first 2 pulls the alcohol turned so dark green it was almost black.
    3rd pull the alcohol was pretty light green..almost see through.

    Swim can say the full amount of oil that was because he doesnt have a scale.

    But I think swim said the amount of cannabis put in was around 7-10 grams of shake and stems.

    If that image dont show up Ill post it up again later.

    CoryInJapan added 2 Minutes and 41 Seconds later...

    Oh and incase you all were wondering if I had the pictures for the second and third pull. No, i do not.Swim didnt take any unfortunately.

    SWIM was wondering what kind of screening process SWIY used to remove the shake and stems that was mentioned. SWIM has a LOT of shake every several months that SWIM has always just thrown away. SWIM is tired of that and would like to take advantage of this TEK but needs further instructions. Also, SWIM checked checked some alcohol that he had and it seems it's only 70%, where might SWIM find 91% plus. Hell vodka is only 80%!?!?!?

    Vodka is typically 80 proof which is 40%. 70% works fine, SWIM has used this same method with 70% and it works fine. He uses a fine jelly strainer - like a mesh basket - to filter. If you can find a flat glass dish it works best - rounded ones like the bowl shown here are harder to scrape.
    You can let it evaporate or if you get impatient you can put it in an oven on like 250f and speed things up - make sure there's no flame inside the oven if you do this (the broiler could lead to a terrible accident with all those alc fumes). SWIM thinks three pulls is good - he's compared the quality of each pull seperately and after three there's no point.
    If SWIY has a good connection for shwag this is a good way to make it worth smoking, or eating (you can just whip this stuff into a creamy pasta and it dissolves nicely.)

    Swim used a metal sifter. Like the one you have in your kitchen, SEE BELOW. Then coffe filters to get the rest(which was mostly kief)

    Its pretty simple. Good luck, hope swiy gets good results. I know swim did.;)

    As SWIM mentioned he is doing this same TEK with some 70% ISO. When he used the coffee filter though the liquid wouldn't really go through it, but instead stayed on it like if it was non-porous. Also SWIM didn't get any Hash Oil but normal Hash instead, why is this?

    SWIM thinks coffee filters are probably too fine - he never uses one, just the mesh screen.
    The consistency of the product will vary - if you evaporate the alcohol completely the result will be gummy, but not quite 'oily', if this is what you mean.

    Yea the only way it will be truelly oily is if swiy did the butane blast extraction.Iso hash oil is always more gummy like said before.

    swim suggests going down to your god ole' hydroponics store and investing in some 50/50 screen. works wonders for ISO oil.

    Possibly.

    The butane extraction does not soak the material for long, just long enough to saturate it and then the butane, once it fills the extractor (honey bee extractor is a popular one) it immediately comes out again and brings all the THC resin out of the material.

    This means less flavour and contaminants off the vegetative material would be in the finished product. It is likely as not purer than the iso extraction.

    With the iso, some soak the material for a long time, and resoak it to leech all the resin. The flavour is different, maybe more harsh although both are fairly harsh if smoked in a UK joint.

    Well swim never smoked any hash anything out of a joint as its a waist in swim opinion.

    Swim smokes it out a special hash pipe and the only difference is the taste...Taste more chlorophylly but the high is identical for the most part.Honey oil taste better because if done right there will be very little or no chlorophyll.

    Possibly the ISO oil has more cannabonoids in it.

    SWIM started a 24 hour soak of 70% rubbing alcohol. But SWIM being his usual self, forgot about it until just now. Total soaking time was around 2.5 days that left the alcohol looking like a very dark greenish black color to it. SWIM is currently drying the left over alcohol in a small room that he's heating to about 85-95 degrees, hot but not too hot for the time it'll take to evaporate the alcohol. SWIM thinks it shouldn't take more than 24hrs or so. Wish swim luck, this was his first alcohol extraction.

    Swiy did everything fine and the end product will work as desired but,to get the best taste and least Impure oil is to use at least 91% if not 99% iso or everclear.

    Also that means there is 30% water in there collecting more plant matter into the final products.

    Swim personally would have coffee filtered it a couple times to try to get some out.

    Though since swiy used 70% swim would have left it in there for 5 days instead of 3 days using 91%+

    Though swiy should have got most of it anyways so it wont be that big a deal this time around/

    Actually, SWIM made a pretty big mistake, he didn't rinse his 'trash' with fresh alcohol, he was thinking of doing a 24hr soak this time with the alcohol he's already added to the container and let it strain through a few coffee filters first. Gonna need a bigger plate though, what do SWIY use to hold all the liquid.

    If Swiy means where do I hold all the liquid for evaporation? then he uses I large pyrex pie glass plate.

    Mason jars for anything else.
    He ended up picking up a pack of large mason jars for under 10 bucks and had like 12 mason jars.

    Ever since then all his liqiud projects have been so much easier with all these mason jars.

    How long should SWIM let his second run go? Remember, he didn't rinse the leftovers from the first. Just poured the alcohol through a little coffee filter type cup and that was it. SWIM was thinking of letting it set for 24hrs or so. Also remember that it's 70%, not 90%.

    another 48 hours should get anything thats left or worth swiys time

    Yea swim didnt rinse he did what swiy did but squeezed as much of the plant material that swim could.

    then did a second extraction and swim got some good results still so 2 days is swims guess from experience.

    My dear friend Dr. Raoul Duke is also mid-way through his own alcohol THC extraction. Having only ever extracted alkaloids from cactus, he fallowed the same proceedure he would with Peruvian Torch powder; soak powdered marijuana in 99% IPA, (marijuana filled 1/4 of the jar, IPA filled it to 3/4 total volume) for 3 days, shaking vigorously multiple times a day, decanted liquid layer, re-added fresh IPA to the same level, soak, shake, decant, repeat a third time. Dr. Duke plans to evaporate his extraction this weekend. However, he gathers, after reading this thread, that this length of time and number of pulls was probably unnessary, and possibly just served to extract more unwanted material. Can anyone confirm/deny Raoul's thinking? Do any SWIMmers have any advice, or a better way to do this in the future?

    Edit: If it helps, Raoul used 9 grams marijuana, and probably 500 mls 99% IPA - so far anyway.
