    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    alltatup i just need to come play with all your toys so I can make my medicine better.

    My Dr says I dont need a Buchner Extractor, or a machine to decarb plant matter and he also wouldnt sign off on a bottle of Spiritus 195proof or Everclear 190 proof as he says thats not medicine. Oh well. Guess my Green Dragon, RSO, etc will have to do.

    All kidding aside in his most recent book "Harvest" Ed Rosenthal says in several places that soaking bud in water before being decarboxylated would remove a significant amout of the chlorophyll and more importantly the green taste many dont like in edibles, or tinctures. So assuming vap juice too but cant remember. Anyone else know that to be true? Obviously you cant use cold water or agitate it or you would lose all the outer trichomes. But i dont see how it would not weaken the final product somehow.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

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

    Oh Ok, Now I get it. Thanks I'll let ya know how it comes out. I don't suppose you have a good recipe?

  • Mr.furley

    You want to get it when it's still a goo. If you wait to long it will harden. Depending on temp 12hr is about right. Then mix that with your VG.
