You know I've seen the pics and I haven't yet! I should, because I have a few zips of bud that didn't pass the test but may be fine rosin'd.

Note the filtering today went quicker than last time, only a few hours. Probably because the material was very dry. I filled up the coffee filter three times, changing the filter each time.

This everclear + berry scented trichome mix could probably be sold as is for use as shots or mixed drinks, it smells that decent. Like I said the original buds I called anise (i.e. liquorice) cheesecake and the resultant wash is totally berry boozy in smell.

Woolybear's Berry Boozy Cannabis Tincture Recipe Idea
1oz WBBCT, 1oz Cranberry Juice, splash of tonic
Pour ingredients over ice into a strainer and shake

I finished the batch I made in the original post today. No change in texture, still shatter quality. Really tasty, minty, piney, fresh.

Regarding the heat pressing, I'm wondering if its even necessary with high-quality ethanol washes. It does help because the material when scraped is basically crystal dust and the heat press makes it much easier to handle... plus marketing. its shatter

Ethanol update

I made the 190 proof wash with ethanol. Here's some pictures:

squish

I took about .3 grams of this powder into a folded piece of parchment paper.

285 degrees squeezed briefly a couple of times to melt the hash. Result is shatter that breaks and does not get sticky upon immediate skin contact:



Full melt no residue shatter. If anything was lost there may be a TINY bit of terp loss, but more of an immediate head effect.

Math calculations:

Solvent cost: $30 (May be less)
Weed cost: $0
Amount of weed used: 40 grams (ballpark estimate)

Oil obtained: 9 grams (22.5% return)
Cost per gram: $3.33
Cost per dab : 0.35 (0.10 gram dab)
Retail value per gram: $35-$50
Retail value for 9 grams: $315 - $450

- This was from a good strain of weed, but i let it go to long and it wasn't something I'd smoke in the end in terms of dryness
- Retail value is for fun, but I imagine the shatterness and taste would make it worth more in the right area. Retail shops charge $30 for half grams of bho for example

I did a small run of my sugar trim and popcorn buds of my med man rock star skunk strains.

No pics, i dabbed it all - but very light blonde color. This was after exposing the mixture to sunlight for a day to burn off the green.

The immediate taste upon exhale is like cotton candy. not as sweet but you can taste it. very interesting,

The fresh frozen run doesn't turn into shatter like the cured nug run.

It has a matte finish, bend and snap texture.

However, it doesn't seem to be as potent as the cured trichomes. Definitely doesn't taste as good; tho there is the mild cotton candy taste of the initial exhale it turns into a more savory taste.

so quick question from an old timer who sees that bho as a crack equivalent:

what is the difference to a normal pressed hash from kief or w water hash ?
return of product ? better hi ?

no hate - just trying to understand why people add chems to a natrual product

bho is 'dabable' whereas toking bubble hash or regular hash is a more involved process.

bho is also much better looking than hash, so a lot of the marketing is built around that. 'if it doesn't shatter it dont matter' for example.

from what i understand crack is a cheaper, faster-hitting drug than cocaine. BHO is more expensive than herb by far but i don't think it hits harder than good herb. it is a different more convenient high because you are are not burning material - so i can use bho in my apartment without getting complaints.

however, i have never gotten truely 'blazed' off of bho. its not the same as smoking herb.

this thread is about alcohol tinctures that 'dab' like bho. bho is dangerous and is very expensive to do properly, hence why i am doing ethanol washes.

trichomes are trichomes wheter u wash them off with water or separate with alcohol or butane. the difference is that with alcohol/bho you get a dabbable product right away.

my next experiment will be taking bubblehash and winterizing it in ethanol. if i can shatter this way then it would be a lot easier to scale than alcohol washes alone.

tldr; Marketing & Convenience

hope this answers your question!
