whole plant extraction

Hey guys!

Former med grower and patient, went back to my day job after 502 went into effect and I didn't get a license.

I used to average about 1.25-1.5lbs of bud per light on a single ended bulb, but I never really kept detailed notes, and pretty much never weighed my trim. My trim used to bring anywhere from 12-18% yield, but I have never done a whole plant run.

I am wondering what you guys experience for total weight per light (bud and trim) and return on whole plant extraction.



I plan on only having the legally allowed amount of plants so I can only have 15 plants. I'm not breaking the bank buying from the rec store so I want to make sure it will make sense to start, but nothing is more frustrating than paying 40/g for shitty oil that looks good in the packaging and the budtender says its fire, but ends up being mids at best.

Not sure about yield for a plant but I have found that when I do a better job like cleaner product and not a ton of butane the yield is lower but stronger, make of that what you will. The lower yield but high recovery and potency is a good thing if that makes sense.

I separate my trim and flowers for a variety of reasons, including the ability to extract separately. With every strain having a different calyx to leaf ratio, it is difficult to say, but I would guess that trim adds about 20-25% to total weight of extract return. Something like this from a frosty single plant - 3 oz total dried flowers yields 20 grams extract with 1.5 oz of trim yielding another 6 grams. Some trim will be less than others.
