dybert - would you care to share your methods and solvents used?
my question for pangea or anyone else that wants to weigh in - is there a reasonable way to produce thca isolate anywhere from 90%-99% using low quality shatter that has sugared? i am starting work on cleaning up some shitty slabs, and while i am likely just going to be winterizing, this thread makes me wonder if i can take advantage of the crystallization that has already occurred and produce a bit of isolate, but there isnt any seperation happening, the oil as is isnt pure enough, so its just a big mass of sugar goop.
i currently have a small jar with about a gram of the oil that i diluted with essential oil to mimic terpene content, mixed well, and added a small dab of the unmixed sugar was as a kind of "seed crystal", but its not really a crystal, and there might be to many impurities for seperation to occur.
dybert - im very interested in your method since your starting material seems to be a much higher quality version of what i am working with...a mass of tiny crystals, rather than the larger seed crystals which can be mechanically washed over a filter or with very minimal agitation.
