winterizing bho with 99% iso
    #750802 - 10/02/14 10:43 PM (2 years, 2 months ago)

Can I winterize bho with 99% isopropyl alcohl , or must it be ethanol ? And if ethanol must be used , can I use 95% ethyl rubbing alcohol ? I must say that the rubbing ethanol has some really and I meen REALLY shitty tasting additivest , far worse than any iso that is sold in Vancouver , British Columbia pharmacies , and high test ethyl alcohol cannot be bought here , the highest % drinking ethanol that is clear and colourless is 62.5 % and the cost is insane - 45Canadian $$  for  12 imperial ounces ! So needless to say that takes food grade ethanol out of the fucking picture ! any help ???

Appears to be a process of de-waxing.
First I heard of it, reading up on it now.

Ethanol is preferred because it's a less aggressive solvent. You don't want the plant waxes to dissolve into solvent, you want them to coagulate so you can filter them out of solution. You can use 99% iso, but you will accomplish nearly nothing.

Blackdove on the shroomery has a neat tek involving acetone and a heat/freeze process that does make rocks. Brings a lot of chlorophyll with it but it gets the job done.

pizza:

When you're winterizing BHO aka absolute grade there's very little difference between trim and bud of the same strain as you're left with a very clean product, almost identical potency. If you're not winterizing the quality difference is due to the contaminants in the leaf. The leaf has a smaller ratio of trichomes vs plant matter compared to the calyxes.

Mex would be out yielded by homegrown and have more stuff to clean up.

Same thing goes for trim, it's about composition. You might have double the contaminants using trim and less cannabinoid concentration but once you clean the product up you're removing contamination thus increasing potency.

It's akin to distillation of alcohol. You can start with a 2 % mash or a 20% mash, less work will be needed to get the 20% up to 95% and the product will be easier to clean starting with the 20% mash (although not always the case). There are virtues of using bud such as higher yield vs solvent used and also with less purification you can retain more flavor as the winterization process removes much of the flavor.

Fact of the matter is, if you remove all the solvent and contaminants from a product it can't be any purer, it can only vary in it's composition. When working with absolute grade, there's not much of a difference.

if you guys are talking about getting all the wax from the weed I would go with butane butane yes is very harmfull if u don't use it right but if you use it right and know how to use it it makes a very good payoff at the end and is not harmfull atall if you remove all of it

Holy fuck, is English you're 6th language or something?

I think, I know what you're talking about, maybe....... Butane has nothing to do with winterization.

absolute is as pure as possible, 200 proof or 100% ethanol grain alcohol.  or as close as you can find/get/make.  :smile:

put down the dabs when you type pizza guy  :laugh2:
