Shatter is just a term that most understand as translucent, clear solvent extracted cannabis oil that is firm and brittle. I figured most would understand that, as it is quite common term for this texture and would be shorter than saying translucent butane extracted cannabis oil with cannabinoids in their carboxylic acid form.
Oh I read your posts and my reply to your decarboxylation creating an "almost pure" still stands it doesn't create a more pure product than it was originally. I follow the graph provided by jump and grey wolf along with the co2 and h2o bubbles that form during decarboxylation. Decarboxylating at anything less than 250f is a waste of time.
I don't seem to have mixed up anything, you claimed shatter what most know as a clear translucent brittle solvent extracted oil as under purged or full of solvent and that wax/budder is fully purged or properly made.
I would also like to add that I have made very tasty stinky wax, I still prefer to only consume absolute shatters, single solvent extracts that have waxed up reek havoc on my lungs making it feel like they are coated in glue.
lol. I take it back your not an ass hole or anything, you just dont pick up on things in reading. Perhaps my terminology is not matching yours. I am doing a pictorial because I figure that will explain things better. you maybe reading my post, but you are not reading them well.
again. I never claimed all budder is fully purged. I said if done right you can fully purge it. I will show you the difference momentarily. It will not make you cough. It is very very smooth.
again. 99 percent of the time when people hand me clear shatter I put it back on heat and it clearly needs more purging.
again. It is done Decarboxylating after a short period of time. you dont need it at 250 after that. turn it down and you will slowly activate the cannabinoids and not degrade your oil in the process.
Again, 5-15 percent waxes is ALMOST PURE. The best bubble hash has a lot more waxes.
Also I did not say stinky, I said sticky. If it is sticky at room temp, you are doing it wrong. You may have read my friends graywolf's threads, it doesn't mean you are doing it right. I have read the same thread, multiple times. he is doing it right. his shatter and oils are not sticky, unless it is his winterzed oil, that is sticky because all waxes are removed as you suggested. I have some of his winterized oil right now. In fact I'm gonna go smoke it. while i make this pictorial for yall.
