Best butane?
    #544424 - 04/08/11 01:44 PM (3 years, 5 months ago)

So, whats the best butane to use for BHO?

Best, as in most "pure" or "refined" or whatever you wanna call it.

I would have to say its the Power 5x



Its definitely a bit cleaner then the Vector, however it costs a lot more if you don't know where to get it. I find these cans though for $5 a piece at a special corner market around here.

I'm kinda limited to ebay unfortunately. So I pay double with shipping. But I don't mind.

Was looking at Colibri, dunno if thats good. It seems that 5x stuff is about the same price.

Also, how many cans for about 50 grams of herb?

You could probably get by with one and might have some left over.

Well, 50 is my minimum, so I'm just trying to figure out how much per 50 haha. :thumbup:

I have a 66 gram extractor and I run 2 cans through it. I feel 2.5 - 3 might do better because I feel my plant matter still smells like herb after I run butane through it and not plain plant matter. I usually get 4-5 grams of good BHO from 60-66gs of mixed sugar leaf, popcorn buds and some regular herb.

I hear Colibri is good, but the majority of people that I know who are BHO enthusiasts (including me :smile: ) choose the Power 5x, and if they can't afford that they get the Vector.

Well, since the Power 5x is about the same price (on ebay anyway) I'm gonna go with that. For $15, a potential 4-5 grams of good BHO is well worth the return. I'm gonna *try* to save up trim until I have a good hundred+ grams. Should be a fun time.

My original plan was to save up for an entire year to 4/20, and do a BHO/Gumby/whatever run each year on that date. Make it a tradition.

But I doubt I can last that long :wink:

Oil will fuck you up. I have been sparingly smoking mine because of how high it leaves me lol. Im sure you could do a few runs and it would last a bit longer. Ive had my last run of 4 grams for what seems like a month now.

Oh god, I wouldn't smoke 4 grams of oil in a 6 month period probably haha. Its just a novelty for me to have around...I prefer smoking buds most of the time. I cook with oil and hash :shrug:

Lol well there you go. BHO is a expensive novelty around here. Dispensaries charge $50/g of some high quality BHO. That's why I bought the $40 extractor and now I get those Power 5 cans for $5. So every $10 I make around $200+- of high quality BHO.






I don't know what kind of extractor your using but I have a 50micron screen for the filter on a aircraft grade aluminum tube and I think that helps a lot too (the filter). If you use a coffee filter or a smaller mesh screen I think it makes the oil look darker because my oil came out black when I was filtering through coffee filters.

I haven't built my extractor just yet...but it'll probably be ghetto :lol:. I was thinking of a mesh screen reinforced with a coffee filter, but I dunno. We'll see when the time comes.

I don't know how mods feel about me posting eBay listings so I will just send it to you via PM.

But its a good extractor for $40 + free shipping. Comes with two 50 micron steel screens and a hose clamp. There are even options to have a tripod base but I chose the most basic for 39.99 and the thing works great.

I find the easiest way to shatter is to leave it spread out on your pyrex dish after all solvent has seemed to be evaporated. Take a 3 temp heating pad and set it on high, leave the pyrex dish over night heated up on the pad. Come back in the morning and your oil will be slightly harder to peel but you have to scrape it while its heated up, otherwise if it cools it starts to shatter and gets stuck to your fingers.

So basically;
longer evaporation = harder oil = shatters
re melt + whipped = more pliable oil = rolls, bends, shapes

I'm about to do another BHO run tonight.
Ill do a step by step science to different oil states.

Mainly the remelt + whip because that is a awesome step to know, it makes your oil into hash.

interesting ,i think im going to have to put this to play ,sounds like fun stuff,now when your talking about whipping do you mean just stir it up in a dish ,like whipping or is this something else ,that step by step would be pretty nice when you get around to it as well , thanks for the tidbits
peace~

Yeah I put all my oil in one of those regular mouth 1/4 pint jars. I then put the thing on my Mr. Coffee plate (a hot plate would work too) making sure that no liquid will trickle down (sometimes it does). I just sit my jar with my oil in there on the plate and let it go for about 30seconds, once it heats up you will see more bubble start to form, I just use my picker packer poker to whip it kind of like I am using a whisk with 1 wire, you can use a paper too. Just whip it and whip it as your turning the jar I usually whip for about 10-15 seconds. I then will lean the glass slightly on its side and let the oil accumulate in a puddle at one spot. Let cool for a little bit or you can smoke as is.

Remelting and whipping has become a vital step for my oil so it doesn't shatter when you try and break off a piece. Really its all a matter of personal preference how much you want to whip it. I just do it enough to make it pliable and buttery but some people whip it until it does this dry thing with the oil but I found that to be not worth it.

I hope this helps, I hope that link helps to Ras :wink: that was one of my better purchases this year and it didn't even cost that much.

I think if you look closer it says BHO Butane Essential Oil in the description. They don't reallly give hints unless you know what BHO is, I had to actually figure out what BHO by searching it when I heard about it first. They sell a lot of the extractors on eBay now and what not.
