    Vape Juice

    I found this recipe on "I Love Growing Marijuana" has anyone tried it this way? Does it work well? any other info would be much appreciated.
    1. Put the marijuana into the sterile canning jar. Add alcohol until it covers marijuana by at least one-quarter inch. Place lid on the jar and shake vigorously. If the plant matter absorbs the alcohol and increases in size, add more alcohol.
    2. Place the jar (still tightly closed) in a dark location for 10-14 days. At least once per day, shake it up vigorously.
    3. After 10-14 days, strain the mixture through the cheesecloth, and pour it into the second sterile canning jar. Mix in your 100% USP-food grade vegetable glycerin. Put the lid on and shake vigorously for a minimum of two minutes.

    If you want to remove more of the alcohol, this can be done by straining the mixture more or simply adding more vegetable glycerin to make the mixture thinner. Keep in mind, some of that alcohol will naturally evaporate.

    Maybe it's just me but I wouldnt want to vape any alcohol at all. And also a 2 week soak in alcohol seems a bit much. Most of the thc will dissolve in a few mins, after that you'll be extracting chlorophyll. Jmo

      You are correct. Ethanol has the ability to extract chlorophyll due to its polarity. Not the best for vaping at all. Maybe some eatable RSO would be ok.

    Major details missing from the instructions. Isopropyl alcohol would not be the right kind for vaping. I believe they are talking about Ethanol alcohol. And what proof? I think 151 proof works best if we have no other solvent options. Flavored alcohol? I believe grain alcohol (no flavor added) works best. Maybe suggest ever clear? Or a different extraction solvent all together.
    Love step 3... mix in veg. glycerin. What is the proper mixing ratio? Does it depend on the viscosity of the THC/CBD extract? I don’t know the answer to this, but that last step is one of the most important to making the cartridge burn properly.

      #Toker1, Here are the ingredients. Guess my copy/paste skills need some work.lol
      INGREDIENTS:
      • 5 grams of pure, blonde, powdered hash or 7 grams of high-quality bud (ground by hand)
      • 2-4 ounces of high proof alcohol (180 proof or higher; must be drinkable alcohol; 100 proof is the absolute minimum) — vodka is preferable, for its flavor neutrality
      • 2-4 ounces of 100% USP-food grade vegetable glycerin
      • 2 sterile canning jars and lids
      • 1 cheesecloth

        Thanks for sharing uncledoug
        You can put the alcohol mix out in the open on a flat glass tray over night to let it evaporate. Scrap the glass tray with a razor blade the next day for a easy concentrate without the ethanol alcohol.

          To be honest The VG/PG is kind of weak but it has its place in my day to day.

          Use 7 to 14 grams of weed
          Chill your ever clear, weed and jar in the freezer over night

          Don't break your weed up that much, especially don't use a food processor or coffee grinder.

          Cover weed in cold ethyl alcohol and continuously Shake gently for 3 minutes then strain, cheese cloth, then coffee filter. it should be golden not green.

          Over night the mix on a glass tray as mentioned above

          Heat your VG about 3 ml. in a shot glass sitting in a water bath not above 185f, and mix in concentrate in. This does not take but a minute on the heat, just enough to thin and mix.

          You can add store bought VG/PG mixes for flavorings or buy Terpenes flavors. Distilled water can thin down a thick mix.

          When I do it that's what I do.
          Easy.and no waiting weeks

          Mr.furley, I strained the mixture 3 times then poured it into a glass casserole dish, let it evaporate like you said, used a razor blade and ended up with goo. Worked great, added glycerin a little at a time until the viscosity appeared about the same as regular vape oil. The effect is about half of what I would like.
          I washed it for 7 days instead of 10/14 so maybe that's why the weakness, or maybe just a bit to much glycerin. Not sure why. I'm going to try your method this weekend.

          Couple thing to mention.
          1. Depending of your setup Decarboxylate before hand can sometimes help. Vaporizer should get hot enough but it was mentioned to me. .
          2. Make sure to do a second wash of your product with new ethanol alcohol, that can help.
          It took me a couple different time before I hit a somewhat good one. If you could get your hands on some wax or oil it would improve your final product . The alcohol wash in this way is not that super, but it does work to some extent .
          They do make extractors for some bucks alltatup has this one I think.

        Yes, I don’t think any other vodka comes in 180 proof besides Spirytus. Polish stuff that will strip the paint off a car. Lol
        still leaves the issue about polarity. If you want to get the best tasting vape oil, the solvent polarity must be correct. Ethanol alcohol will extract chlorophyll as well as THC/Terps.

          I used Everclear, 190 proof, Put some in OJ and that's some strong vodka. I've heard folks say Don't smoke and drink at the same time, not sure why, I feel great.

          Technically ever clear is grain alcohol. More potent than vodka. Tastes similar though. We used to call it the clever ear.

        Sounds more like a Green Dragon recipe.

        I am pretty sure chop is on 5/11 for me so love the idea of a recipe that can be Green Dragon from the dropper and Vape-ready :-) Thank you!

        Is there anything good weed can't make a little better?

          Scroll about 1/3 of the way down. It is a tincture made from decarbed weed and grain alcohol.

          Yes the only difference is Time and Glycerin. Did you see Mr. Furley's comment above? I'm going to try his method this weekend.

        Howdy all: I agree with Billyboy: recipe at the top is for Green Dragon tincture. You can't make a vapeable or dabbable concentrate if you leave the cannabis to soak for a long time: you will end up with RSO which can't be vaped/dabbed. Here's my concentrate results using a very quick wash of the frozen cannabis, a Buchner filter to remove any solids, and my Extractcraft Source machine: https://forum.growweedeasy.com/forum...-sap-from-trim

          Spidermite, Is your doctor a Cannabis specialist? A "Buchner" isn't an extractor: it's a kind of filter for removing very fine particles of like 5 microns and suchlike. It's used for making concentrates--I like all the green stuff in my tinctures.

          Yes I know what they are just was poking fun at alot of so called healers (Drs.) They dont cure anything and not even sure alot still manage illness or symptoms. And yes in my tinctures i dont even really strain it much. I love the flavor and love edibles made with good old fashioned Cannabutter from the crock pot. I want the full array of nutrients it provides.

          But would still love some of those toys you have alltatup. You would think we were making moonshine with our old fashioned tools here. Lol At least for making essential oils.i did go back through some of your writings and would love to have some of the tools you have at your disposal. But I did at least order a full Buckner Filter kit.

          Can't beat homemade. Actually, I am making tincture for various friends--some with much more CBD than THC, some THC-heavy, and some 50/50. I've been concentrating tincture and reclaiming the Everclear for two days, so yeah, I love playing with these marvellous cannabis machines.

        Did this a LONG time ago with Everclear and a mason jar. Had it in my closet, shook it up often. When put into a hotplate to reduce, we noticed it started smelling like plastic.

        The Everclear dissolved the plastic ring on the metal lid and the entire oz. of Mexican Brickweed was ruined. Well, ruined-er. Unusable.

          Freeze the weed for at least 3hrs. and freeze the alcohol for 12hrs. then filter. This will give you filtrate almost free of clorophyll. Try filtering outside in freezing temps and you get a clearer liquid. I would love to try filtering in below freezing temps but never gets cold enough here. Tried once in freezer and worked great but wife was not happy.
