I'm extremely slow at pulling descriptive language out of the air, but you're right I think that looking at it someone might think maybe $25/g (retail, here in SoCal,) but looks taint everything... so let me say it has a regal tone with a death stroke of power befitting it's name, Lil Dragon. Indica, but no old fogy couch lock dragon, a squire of an all day high flyer.
I used two cans of a clean lot of the original Puretane n-butane, the extraction was done using a Mason jar open at ambient, so the extraction temp was at the Bp of n-butane, 32F. The first soak pour off was the lightest yellow piss tint I've ever seen, any brighter and I could say electric.
That's a Corning ceramic dish with a Pyrex lid,
I use Stator Bros generic parchment paper, which does have a silicone coating, just like most other brands out there.
Btw, I tried the silicone coated kitchen spatula, the oil adheres to it but lets go fully to a stickier material. I collected the remaining oil onto a SS spatula, extreme agitation, you guys wouldn't have included that part of the scrape with the rest out of fear of nucleation, ratted the heck out of it, and it just melted in with the rest of the patty. Go figure.
Which brings me to why I say 115F down to -29.5" Hg. It was 20,000 microns when I first started preaching this,
(3/6/'13 - SkyHighLer)
Boiling point: 119*C / 246.2 degree Fahrenheit
Properties: Antiinflammatory, Cytoprotective (gastric mucosa), Antimalarial
seems to be the first to boil off, according to this info:
Since caryophyllene starts to boil off before THC, I made a data table of some of it's boiling points under vacuum just like I presented for THC. What you want to do is stop pulling your vacuum at about the 20,000 micron level and keep your temps below about 120F. That way you'll still be boiling off the trapped butane and moisture, but leaving all the oil components intact and unstressed, and all you'll ever get is sap.....imo."
I noticed GW was saying 115F/-29.5" Hg in a thin film, and agreed that was a good stand.
As you can see from my micron meter readout, I don't go all the way down to -29.5" Hg (~10,000 microns as GW pointed out,) I stop at about the 20,000 micron level(-29.15" Hg) so I have plenty of room for overshoot. I recall seeing a low of about 13,000 microns this purge.
Interesting about the color, the trichs were clear (see pic,) so from the nice yellow first soak pour off, each subsequent pour off was still yellow or in the final pour off, clear. What I find interesting is just how green the butane/oil solution in the jar appears from the finely ground material, and that the 2.5 micron filter paper holds it all back.
One of my reasons for posting up is to counter the assertion that high cannabinoid strains often come out wax. Knock on wood it didn't happen to me, scrapping, agitation, what did I do differently?
Thanks again for the kind words!!
