I’m new here and new to this whole extraction thing.
So I blasted some AAAA+ with butane, cooked it down in a double boiler in a mason jar, but them outside to cool off a bit (Canada it’s cold) and threw them in my vacuum oven. Within seconds it started bubbling and then they exploded. I was trying to make shatter but I got a crystalline substance. Posting photo. Any help would be appreciated as my source is out for a while due to a fire.
Couldn’t resist the typo lol. But in all seriousness I don’t think anyone is trying to give him too hard of a time. Just surprising seeing people still using pvc. Glass or SS tubes are pretty readily available online as far as I know.
That color looks nice, I wouldn’t want to do anything about that. Do you have $30 to get a glass tube to blast through online? PVC doesn’t stand up to butane very well so you no doubt have some PVC in any extract you get out of it. Please at least get a glass tube or if your can afford it a stainless steel tube.
As for how to improve quality, the colder your conditions the better the resulting extract. Get everything cold as possible. Remember that if you’re using cans you have to stay above 0°C to maintain pressure, so just refrigerate your cans and freeze your packed tube.
And if you’re wanting a shatter consistency melt it down at 30°C with vac in a thin sheet. At this point what you have pictured may be too far gone
Thanks everyone. We can definitely buy better products to blast with but Iike i said I’m new at this and I’m here to learn which is why I posted.
What kind of stainless or glass tube do you recommend ??
I boiled it off in a jar in a double boiler, then let it sit inside for 15 min, and then brought them outside for 15 min before I put it in the vac.
I don’t have the tube here my friend did the blasting for me cuz I’m afraid I’ll explode lol
I’ll definitely get a better tube tomorrow !!
