    I hear good things about the presses, but they are out of my price range for now. I just made a batch of RSO that is coining out ok. I took the plant matter from the Tincture and I am making some infused coconut oil with what would be trash. I still see some trichs in there and having that going in the crok pot at the same time makes it easy to clean up the gunked up spoon.  

    I use a rice cooker to evaporate the everclear, it works but next time when it gets close I think I will find a slower way to render the last bit it, happens quick in the rice cooker.

      I think rosin has to be the purest extract, its nothing but bud. heat and pressure. A Rosin press is in my future for sure.

      Yes I agree that the rosin is probably more pure but BHO is so easy to do and you can make all the different types of hash.... shatter crumble... gooey if you like that lol

      I love the RSO and the infused coconut oil, the RSO is like an old school hash high. I have never used either in cooking but I am making gummy bears from both this week

    I have a press but some strains don't produce as much as others. You just have to try different strains. The stuff it does produce is very good and very strong good luck

    As notsohigh sez the better the nugs, the better the resin. On close trim, you need a little mold to pre-press a little puck. You will be better off to stay with bud. I'd suggest you get one that has plenty of pressure. That way you can press at a lower temp, better flavor. Also get one you can control. Once you make contact with the plate to the product, it needs a moment to heat, then you press. It will cost a little more but bigger plates and more pressure is what you want.

      Would a hash plant be a good choice for for making rosin?

      I bet it would. I noticed Delicious has a graft that tells the BHO yield...pretty cool.

    I purchased a nugsmasher mini and it works great. As not nosohigh said different strains produce more some less. Great stuff without using alcohol or butane.Best of luck!

    dont forget the easiest method of extraction. Dry ice hash. all you need is a 5 galon bubble bag, dry ice (some places still sell it) and either trim or fresh buds

    I just made 15 grams of BHO while i had nothing else to do. I have a very easy method for making this. I have several glass tubes for blasting the trim or buds, and i fill them all up to start with and make them ready to blast. Once i blast the last one that i first filled up i stop and fill them up again. Next i finish blasting all the trim and keep warm water under my pyrex container to help boil off the butane. I let it sit and periodically change the water to keep it warm not hot until very few bubbles are left. Next i scrape the BHO out of the pyrex dish and put it on parchment paper and into the purge tank it goes. I purge it for 5 minutes about 3 times and then leave it in the tank for 24 hours. That's all it takes, and my oil is more like stiff honey, but it has no impurities in it at all. You can dab it, eat it (because i decarbed it before blasting it), or whatever you want to do with it. Some of my friends who get shatter from the dispensary say my shatter is much better than the dispensary. Sorry for the long post.  Peace

      Correction on my bullshit answer...for ORAL ingestion, it STILL must be decarbed...but as in other forms of extract, combustion decarbs, converting into THC...found the link...good one! :)

      To answer the question about making my purge tank, I DID NOT make it. I purchased a 2.5 gallon unit on amazon along with my pump. I just had another friend try some of the oil, and he said it was better than what he gets at the dispensary. I do decarb my ...  more

    Yes I agree with Harley and IDA I like to do BHO it’s fun to make and the product is really a nice product if you have the pure ultra refined butane

      Yes I definitely agree with that.... first times I did it with no vacuum chamber and no vacuum pump and the end product was less than desirable.... but after getting the chamber and pump man you can make some good end product

      The BHO is fun to make for me as well except the part of scraping up the BHO from the pyrex dish. I tried this product that the BHO is not supposed to stick to but it was a total failure. I only tried a small batch with this stuff that is kind of like a s...  more
