I was turned on to tinctures...they help me get through the day and a good nite of sleep. Soak your buds in everclear and then evap it off or straight into bottles. Well im sick of the taste of everclear. And it tastes like SHIT....so i have been looking at this machine a while.

In Canada legal is rosin and bubble hash....and this machine. A closed loup ethanol extraction machine.

Soak buds in everclear (i froze the buds and the everclear overnight)

Filter off some everclear...the crucible holds 300ml

put it in the cruicible and start the machine.

there is a flat cake pan thing that sits on top of it you can fill with ice to help speed up the evap...this works GREAT because i didnt figure out what it was for until later !

The end result...300ml recaptured in a measuring cup 280ml of pure clean everclear. And whatever is on this sheet.. it is tincture runny at first and you have to spread it around and move it. When its ready...wow does it work.

Everclear costs me 60 dollars CDN 48 USD for 1 fifth....crazy shit eh. Illegal in my province so high taxes and fancy shipping. This machine will pay for itself in 1 year in the savings of Everclear !

Bazooka blast 50 grams in a 1 quart jar with 750ml of everclear. But it only holds 300ml so the rest i run tomorrow.

Smells like everything GREAT about bazooka blast...powerful bubblegum terps..OMG so good....

It is expensive but i am going to REALLY use this. I might not need the rosin press soon.

Thats a nice investment right there!

I think I'm gonna get something similar to this so I can make my own vape carts. The one I was looking at was like $1500 but can make a decent amount of shatter. No need to winterize rosin!
 
Nice to see another ethanol extractor in, hit me up if you need any help with filtration or anything like that, I nerded out hard on this subject, last run I had three of them running for about a whole day lol the end product 100% is fire as long as wash temps are kept super low, I went into some details in my ethanol extraction thread

Well if you extract below -40 and filter immediately your good to go, but if you do a room temp wash you'll pull more but will need to de colorize with activated carbon, then freeze it and winterize that way, I feel the super cold wash and immediate filtration is the easiest route, I definitely noticed a difference once I got the temps as low as possible, you can take huge dabs of the stuff and not even cough, quite dangerous lol 🤣🤣🤣✌✌✌

Looks like I'll have to wait till winter time or get a big ass walk in super freezer, lol. Thanks for the heads up.

This is exciting!

How much flower can you run per batch? Its only 300mL of liquid to reduce.

Yield? How many grams you getting?

Did you decarb first or after and did it effect terps?

So many questions!
 
You wash the product in whatever size batches you like, then run about 400 ml per go in the source, I've been averaging about 20% running popcorn and sugar trim, it's definitely not as terpy as rosin but you can smell it from across the room for sure, and for making smokeables there is no decarb needed, once you purge off the ethanol via vaccum, light heat or both your good to go with pull n snap or shatter

I had this half gallon mason jar i put all my stuff in and it had a frozen bottle of everclear in it. Left it in the freezer for 2 weeks then remembered it was there.

I did 2 runs of 300ml each with it and ended up with 7.4 grams of product that looks like hash oil. It hits like a sledgehammer.

And you can vacuum purge it INSIDE of the source turbo. I watched a couple more videos. If you leave the pressure on and unplug it when its ready it will pull out the EC over hours. I checked overnight and the pressure was still held.

Because it is a closed loop vacuum extraction machine...geeze.

The end result was a product with no everclear smell....it doesnt spark and it spreads real nice on a paper. BUT the doobs are dangerous. You wont know how high you are until 20 minutes after you smoke them and then the bell rings...like for whom the bell tolls BONG....why didnt i use a Bong...

But i got a buchner and that vacuum pump will make filtering take mere seconds. My next batch i will run a 3 minute wash of something super tasty stop in the middle...2nd filtration with the buckner and then take it to dabs.

What is really fantastic is i am not thinking...was that wasteful...did i get it all. Because i just keep filling a half gallon jar and add the recaptured EC when it gets low. I have already probably saved 100 CDN in EC. This machine will be paid for by Christmas.

And the RSO/hash oil i made...that stuff just melts into your coconut oil when making gummies. There is a residual flavor but it is mild. The gummies are not.
