Here's a step by step method for extracting THC goodness form Schwagg, trim, or buds with common Isopropyl alcohol.
I didn't invent this method, Ganja Nazi and Nardsofdank have been doing this longer than I have, but I'm pretty good at it .
All extractions are done in a well ventilated place, outdoors, as alcohol is VERY flammable and can EXPLODE!!!!
14 grams frosty trim
70% Iso alcohol ( 99%,91%,70%,or even 50% is fine... only difference is evap time)
permanent coffee filter
paper coffee filter
corning ware plate
pot of boiling water
razor blade scraper
For this example, I'll be using 70% ISO.
Store brand "Isopropyl 70%", contains 70 % Isopropyl alcohol and 30% distilled water.
The trim is placed in the jar, and covered with Isopropyl alcohol.
Lid is placed on jar and jar is shaken for NO LONGER THAN 2 MINUTES.
That's the key.
2 minutes or less. Any longer and the solvent pulls too much chlorophyll and plant sugar into the mix.
The alcohol is poured though the paper coffee filter ( held firm by the permanent filter) and strained into the plate.
( plant matter is discarded. It's useless now as all the goodness is dissolved into the alcohol.
the plate is set on top of a pot of boiling water, so the heat from the steam can warm the plate without degrading the THC.
as the last of the moisture is evaporated, all that is left is a golden goodness filled with THC essence.
Goodness...folds of golden goodness...hehe
