How much weight does winterization remove


#1

Hello I was just wondering how much % of weight you lose from your crude oil when winterizing. I know it’s going to vary depending on starting material and what not just looking for an estimate of what everyone else experiences. I’m using trim fyi


#2

if you don’t pick them up, you don’t have to drop them. a lazy sob like me looses nothing on winterization,because they work hard to avoid it. -70C solvent

hydrocarbons or ethanol.
CO2 is a different beast. and it again varies on how you run.

About 20% after decarb to, is what my numbers have been for years. 15-20% unless like @soxlet said you use very cold temps in your extraction. I average a 8% loss just from decarb

don’t follow the weight.
follow the mg THC.
the right question is what % cannabinoids do you loose upon winterization.

and I don’t know.

warm solvent will get you more cannabinoids.

iin my experience 10% loss on winterization, even more with carbon. Decarbing is around 10% as well
