    I was considering the rice cooker on the deck method. It's been a while since I watched a vid on the Phoenix tears website.

    We used to make oil with iso back in the day on the stove . Extremely dangerous. Can't believe we didn't blow ourselves up

    #1802 34 days ago
    Quoted from Brett-L:

    Is that live rosin? There’s some stuff that looks like that going around here but it’s $100 a gram

    My regular site has live rosin as cheap as $40/gram but as expensive as $120/gram

    #1803 34 days ago
    Quoted from Luckydogg420:

    Years ago I made some butane oil. It’s really simple to make, pretty dangerous if done indoors. I CANT STRESS THAT ENOUGH. there have been a couple houses in my area that have been blown apart.
    So, outdoors is a must.
    There’s videos online, but the gist of it is to grind up your dried leaves and put them in a sealable container. I’ve heard people use everything from pop bottles to a copper pipe with a cap on each end. You’ll need a small hole at both ends of the container. The one on top you start loading with butane, it takes a lot, eventually it will turn liquid and dissolve all the thc out of the leaves and drip out the bottom hole. I collected it in a glass jar, and left it out in the hot summer sun until all the butane boils off. What’s left is oil.
    Quantity and quality will be dependent on the original herb that is used.
    Today the expensive professional machines use propane and pressure to make clear distillate. The propane doesn’t react with the chlorophyll as much, so you get a cleaner more pure extract. But those machines can easily start at $10k and go up from there.

    You're pretty much right but I would add a few things. Even with the highest quality material will still come out looking like crap using a backyard method like you described vs an ETS machine that also uses butane and hexane gas but produces much higher quality than the method you described. Even though it evaporates off at room temperature, you really also want to use a purge oven to help pull everything out properly instead of just leaving it in the sun.

    I would also consider $10K to be on the very low end of a decent extraction setup. If you're running it with only your home grown product and only on occasion sure, but facilities that are processing daily are using butane/hexane machines that will run $50-100k or more. If you are looking at a Co2 extractor (which in Vermont we have banned butane/hexane) getting a facility up and running is around $250k minnium.

    I'm sure it's a little bit different in Canada, but that has been at least what I have seen first hand while working in the cannabis industry in the northeastern United States.

    I got a package today too. What could it be?20181220_133338.jpg

    I put a seeds for sale ad on kijiji and I traded three 12 packs to a kind Ontarioan in exchange for a couple golf ball pipes. 10 minutes after he replied, kijiji removed the ad

    Not sure if Canadians thought of this but buying online with a credit card can be viewed by US CBP agents when trying to cross the border into the US.

    Just an FYI guys.

    #1808 30 days ago

    Everything is direct deposit online. Never seen a dispensary offer credit card payment.

    Does anyone have any information on the Canadian government issuing pardons for possession charges?? I heard by 2021 but can't find anything confirming it. Thx.

    #1809 30 days ago

    https://www.ctvnews.ca/mobile/canada/buying-cannabis-with-a-credit-card-why-you-should-think-about-privacy-1.4182055

    Credit card payments are accepted online and in store. Maybe not all...but plenty do. So just a word to the wise for those who travel to the US.

    In terms of a pardon...wouldn't an expungement be better? All government records of a conviction would be destroyed with an expungement. As opposed to a simple pardon which still shows up and you have to answer "yes" when a peace officer asks if you've been convicted of a crime.

    Not sure about timelines but I predict it'll take years...

    #1810 30 days ago

    My experience is unless you're (were) a major trafficker, in a current investigation, no big deal. I was nervous to drive into Canada and saw that if you had DUI convictions, they might not let you drive in. The border guy (customs) just smiled at me. I know that I probably cant get into quite a few countries from marijuana convictions. So I have to do research as I've had friends who were convicted of only a few hundred pounds of pot that were denied entrance to either New Zealand or Australia. They had to sit in a cell in an airport before they sent him back to US. Ive had other friends convicted of a few pounds who weren't considered traffickers and were allowed entrance. I've never had a problem anywhere, and was convicted of alot more. While under investigation, a whole different story. There is a restaurant owner I met who shared my name. During the investigation he told me and my attorney that he gets pulled into customs everytime he comes into the country. His comment to me-James my boy, they dont like you. Since being released almost 20 years ago, no problems. Just smiles when I enter Canada. Sorry for upside down edible package. I had skills in high grade marijuana, nothing computer related to be able to delete picture. Time for a bong hit as I've finished my coffee.

    I've had several different edibles I tried but, they simply do not do anything for me. Have had many warn me to only eat half etc. but to date nothing.

    #1812 30 days ago
    Quoted from RWH:

    I've had several different edibles I tried but, they simply do not do anything for me. Have had many warn me to only eat half etc. but to date nothing.

    I've tried many, many different types and brands. Nothing is uniform. 180 mg chocolate bar from brand A is as strong as 400 mg bar of a different brand. 1000 mg brownie described in an earlier post about the same strength as a 400 mg chocolate bar, which is about the same strength as a different 180 mg chocolate bar. With gummies delivering a different kind of effect than the chocolate bars. My take. I eat the company's suggested portion, and go from there until I've had too much and sleep. So my portion ends up between wanting to feel the edible, and falling asleep. Pretty damn scientific. It just comes down to trial and error for an individual. I've found chocolate bars work best for me. But laws keep changing and potency of the bars can change accordingly, so it can get even more confusing. What's mind boggling to me. Most of us are serious stoners. Imagine the confusion for the average public wanting to learn.

    #1813 30 days ago

    I"m going to label my homegrown organic and charge double

    #1814 28 days ago

    I have tested edibles extensively. The absolute best that works for me is chocolate.

    I get liquid gold bars and eat about 25 percent.

    Everything else to get the same effect

    I have to eat the whole thing. Gummies taste good but they effect me very little.

    My fiancée would try the same thing though and her effects are greater off any edible pretty much.

    Also eating some edibles takes 2 hours to hit me.

    That can be problematic if you are not expecting it.

    Really though as a result of my injuries I can eat and smoke more than most everyone in the room, normally.

    It makes me an odd comparison. IMO.

    This is super early, but I wanted to have a taste before it finishes. This Kali Mist smeels really good and brings back memories of Bonaroo! 2003 I think? Maybe 02

    Received my half lbs. of Tom Ford from weedsmart, I have squished an ounce (7 grams at a time) and I am getting 20% returns! Best returns I have seen at this price range. Taste could be a bit better, but still a knockout high. Also received Super lemon Haze and Blue Moon Rocks, both of those strains are definitely AAAA.

    I did a little research on the history of prohibition and the parallels are interesting.

    Alcohol was prohibited from 1920 to 1933 until it was repealed when more voters wanted alcohol available.

    This article explains when and why cannabis was prohibited.

    Just a heads up to Southern Ontario.
    HaZe was the first shop to be shut down under the new legislation. The police handled the matter poorly and the owners will be making their arguments in court soon.
    In the meantime, check you weed maps listings for updates on HaZe at home's upcoming delivery services.
    Dont forget to voice your opions to Hamilton's city council. The support received from the public has been overwhelming and appreciated.
    For non-locals, HaZe is one of Hamilton's leading cannabis shops specializing in CBD care. HaZe is the first shop to be seized under the new "laws". Media was called in to the event by the police as a scare tactic to other shop owners. Hamilton currently has over 50 dispensaries still operating withing city limits.
    Government lottery? Crooks! Leave our dispensaries alone.

    can anyone give me some info on Rick Simpson Oil (RSO). I have a friend who is under cancer treatment and I am looking for alternatives/additives to his treatment. I have certainly heard some things in the past regarding this and tried to do some online research but just do not know what to believe. Can anyone give me any insight that I can pass along to my suffering friend? Thank you.

    #1829 9 days ago

    It’s all marketing. any product will work great.
    Don’t be shy to try them all, I see value in having a few options And verities.

    #1830 9 days ago

    In thread Poll....Im curious to how many use minimal...one hitters.... Thumbs up if you do.
    Thanks.

    #1831 9 days ago

    Volcano at home.
    Mighty or vape pen while out.

    May go full mighty at my last QP just to stretch it.

    Based my yearly usage (mighty) before I bought a volcano.
    Need to shoot for 2+ lbs.

    Wow, only three of us use one hitters. Would have really guessed that wrong, thought many did!

    #1833 8 days ago

    I used a 1 hitter and dugout exclusively for well over a decade. About 6 months to a year ago I switched to a vape pen with distillate toppers, not long after that I started filling empty toppers with oil. This worked, but I wasn’t completely satisfied. Now in using a vape with shatter. I really like the ease of use, how inconspicuous it is, taste, and lastability of product. I’ve been smoking 1/2oz a week for a really long time, now I vape about 3g of shatter a week. Price is relatively comparable, but the experience is better then before

    Thanks for sharing....usage levels are interesting.
    In the days of Woodstock maybe we got 5% THC, so it took a few hours to get high, and maybe pushed to "Stoned"
    Today, its "0" straight to 60 MPH. Different for sure, and tolerance gets built up.
    Much like my Pain Meds, I continually strive for the lowest levels to protect against this.
    An in thread Poll would be cool, but at the levels of usage for someone like this, comes out to 1-2 Oz A YEAR!
    Friends I know, Plow through that it in a month, and I have trouble understanding that other than conditioning to tolerance
    or Pure Joy....

    #1835 8 days ago

    I go through about an ounce every three weeks. I smoke most of mine at home with a nice glass pipe but, anywhere else I use my 1-hitter. I smoke every day and have been for decades.

    #1836 8 days ago

    I use all kinds of glass at home and keep it clean with grunge off. Grunge off is key.

    Veronika doesn't understand why I have five pipes. My favorite pipe is the big Dynamite

    With the side pipes.

    #1837 8 days ago

    I use 420 cleaner on my glass and have been for years.

    #1838 8 days ago

    I use rizzla x's & only smoke doobies! !! I use glass for my whiskey sours tho!
    *shatter is just too much for me lately & I usually turn down joints rolled in thick papers like zig-zag blues! Yuuck

    #1839 8 days ago

    I smoke about an oz a week through mostly glass pipes. I've been using 99% ISO for a few years now and have found it the cheapest here: amazon.com link »

    A single gallon is around $28. I usually sell three of the gallons for $25 each to friends of mine who also need it to clean their glass, and then I am left with the last gallon for free.

    I like the thin rice paper leaves but they can be hard to roll with. I smoke doob's once in a while, paper makes me hack for ten minutes after I smoke.

    You ever soak your weed with 99% for under 2mins and pour it through a coffee filter!? Then slowly boil off the alcohol. I've made honey oil like that for 20 years! But even that stuff Is too powerful for me! Doooobies only!

    #1842 8 days ago

    I only check this thread once in while, it is painful when you post photos. Given Illinois' financial troubles, only a matter of time.

    I've not had the best of luck with just alcohol, of coarse I've not been using 99% so that could be it in a nutshell. I add micro sand to it like the type use to make pictures out of.

    That's how all the old school farmers have been doing it for years! I personally have not done it myself due to the availability of cannabis product due to my line of work, but if you're going to make homemade concentrate, I'd rather it be through a method like this than pouring butane into a column in your kitchen.

    I have found that with the 99% I don't need to use an abrasive anymore. Before switching to the 99%, I would use 91-93% and found that adding epsom salt worked well. I recently used a product that a friend who owns a head shop wanted me to trial. It seemed to be a high iso concentrate with dawn soap added into it. Seemed to work really really well. The soap didn't react to the iso and I only realized what was going on when I started to rinse out the pipe and got bubbles. I will say though that it tasted much better than when using straight iso!
