Here it is! How to convert CBD to THC. Detailed instructions.
Attached is a COA of latest product.
With one set of equipment. 100L Reactor, 50L sep funnel, 50L rotary evaporator and one 20L SPD we can crank out 13kg every 4 hours or so.
Reaction starts with 13kg of CBD isolate as that is the maximum amount of isomerized product that can be comfortably held in the boiling flask of the 50L rotary evaporator.
Reaction is performed in the 100L reactor.
13kg CBD isolate is dissolved into methanol or ethanol.
Solution is heated in reactor to 63C.
300g of catalyst is added (P-TSA
Reaction is allowed to carry on for 47m to achieve the results in the attached COA.
Solution is then drained into buckets. Filling 1/3 of each bucket. 15 buckets total.
Buckets are then filled to 2/3 level with organic solvent (hexane/heptane)
Buckets are then filled to the top with water to elute the cannabinoid solution and separate into an aqueous/organic separation. Catalyst is dissociated into the water alcohol mix while the cannabinoids go with the organic solvent.
The mix is then poured into the multiple 50 or 100L sep funnels and separated…
Dispose of aqueous layer. Retain organic layer for solvent recovery.
Feed organic solvent solution through rotary evaporator and recover all solvent. Bath temp starts at 40C and is raised as high as 90C once most organic solvent is recovered. Diaphragm vacuum pump is then switched out to a 2 stage rotary vane to achieve a deeper vacuum and remove Max amount of solvent.
Cannabinoid mix is then poured into 20L SPD and distilled to remove any remaining solvents and byproducts (p-cymene)
Reaction time can be decreased to achieve more ∆9 or increased to make all ∆8.
Bam THC distillate on the cheap.
I hope this information serves all well and helps make the consumption of THC for medical and recreational purposes more affordable and available for everyone. CBD is legal to ship throughout the US and most parts of the globe. THC will no longer need to be shipped across borders.
Also I hope that this information brings about or helps push through the global legalization of marijuana.
It costs $300-$500 to make one pound of 92% THC distillate. Let’s bring the price of that 25% THC flower down to $125/lb =P
If anyone appreciates this posting buy your CBD isolate and equipment through me. I can also come in as a consultant to assist in the development of labs of scale for minimal cost.
