I read about ' ear wax' after we were attempting (1st time ever) to press out a plug of hash found this blob af black tar above the presses top plug, stuck to the inner/upper walls of the press, a week later. Another individual that smoked some called it that.. I read about EW and it doesnt sound like that is what we did.
Here is how it went: Taking 5 grams powdered (160 micron) matter, put it in a hash press add 1 tsp of Sky vodka: twist/press, heat with heat gun, rest, 15-20 minutes. (The heat timing isnt very scientific at this time) repeated this 6-7 times, each time the press turned 1/4 turn or so, tighter.
Took a piece of that blob of tar, rolled it up ina ball and threw it into the vaporizors wand, on top of some bud ..... vape... AWSOME! The bud, SSSDH, is too much for many, the tar ball (ear wax? I'm told) was opiumesque.
I want more.
The question is> What did we do? Is this a mystery only to me? I leade a sheltered life here in Floorda, can talk out loud about it, the LEO have ears everywhere (parinoia) and laws arent kind. Can I improve on this process?
The return was about 1gr tar from 5 grams 'hash'. It left a 4 gram plug that was very well recieved.
