- start with your SOP for regular crc extraction
- I run a coil prior to injection i have ran room temp solvent with decent result . I just run regular ice in the coil for a happy cost effective middle ground instead of dry ice . Temp gun says solvent gets between 0-5 F
- For indoor i use 1 cup B80 per pound , light dep or really high end outdoor 1.5 cups , and 2 cups for regular outdoor or aged older material followed by a thin layer for celite below the B80 to prevent powders slipping through. I can get water clear somewhere in this range just material dependent. I fully saturate my column with solvent wait a couple minutes. I turn on my recovery pump and start the hot vapor loop / continuous flow process . First i turn on my recovery pump . Next i slowly open the ball valve under my column until its barely cracked and let solvent slowly trickle through . I then open my vapor line on my collection chamber . Then finally opening my recovery ball valve on my solvent tank with solid fast consistent flow instantly . I leave the ball valve under the column barely cracked to have the longest exposure time to media .Once flow stops shut down liquid line on solvent tank and proceed with standard recovery
2.) Recover all solvent possible without hindering recovery time . I normally pull to -5 Hg or slightly less. Reason for this is to save costs and loose the least amount of solvent per run possible . For this reason i do not normally pour i scrape .
3.) Scrape oil into jars with thca seeds
4.) Set vac oven temp to 120 put jars in with snug lids but not as tight as possible . Be careful about amount of residual solvent left in the jars I ALWAYS HAVE VERY LITTLE TO NONE LEFT ! No visual off gassing in large volumes very little to none . Its actually normally very thick and or starts to slightly muffin from the surface temp change so its a little messy or hard to work at times . So get it in there and get it sealed fast so it can melt done and turn to liquid so everything can be pressurized and mobile to fraction off.
5.) Anywhere from 30-60 mins in the oven and the oil should transition from being a muffin in the sealed jar to a runny but viscous consistency like warm / hot honey or real maple syrup . As soon as its totally translucent and liquid drop oven temp between 80-110 It will start off totally clear then fog up with swirls as thca grows . This process can happen very vast or over the course of a couple hours .
6.) Depending on desired growth time and crystal size leave the jars set for the rest of the time between 80-110 starting off low slowing increasing with time . You can do this in hours or days it all just correlates to temp. It has to warm enough for the oil to be liquid or none this will work . Obviously on fresh material we keep the numbers lower for terps for older material who cares about the terps so a little hotter and faster. The first time i did this was on accident i had no lid on my jar and pulled slight vac at 120 and had total crystallization and terp separation in 6 hours . I was trying for crumble and ended up with diamonds in 6 hours almost fully purged lol. So for this method anything over 2-3 days in the oven is really beating a dead horse for growth purposes . I have even achieved ghost diamonds on fresh material just not huge boulders using this tek .
So thanks again #Cloroxcrew and the CRC community hope this can help some people out !
