    Making RSO with Everclear and Distiller

    Thanks for chiming in @Brian420pm. Very informative. Lots of great detail to consider. I've never done before & after scoping at the different stages of processing. I'll have to do that. I was hoping that by decarbing 1st (and using sous vide so it's controlled and precise), I could avoid...

    Making RSO with Everclear and Distiller

    oh, in case anyone notices... I do have a GAS stove, and NO, I did not use it. I cooked off the last bits of Everclear using a hot plate with the stove's fan on and windows open. Should have done that last step outside as well, but it was windy and I didn't want pollen and dirt/dust getting into...

    Making RSO with Everclear and Distiller

    Maybe I'm talking to myself here, but for anyone following along or finding this later... I started with 6oz of larfy buds / trim that I had curing for the last few months and 1.75L Everclear. I decarboxylated it using sous vide at 200°F for 1h 40m. It was in two vacuum-sealed bags, and those...

    Making RSO with Everclear and Distiller

    I'm about to cook... Just about to drop the weed into the sous vide to decarb, and realized that's not done for RSO. OR is it?? If I decarb, and then cook will I convert more?

    Mistake in making a tincture?

    Yup. Strain it, FILTER IT, and then boil off all the alcohol. That link I sent above details everything, as do a million articles and videos. Your double boiler idea will definitely work. Just NO OPEN FLAMES. Obviously. Strain: I like to take some cheese cloth and put that over the top of my...

    Making RSO with Everclear and Distiller

    I'll be making some RSO soon. Maybe I've read too many articles about tinctures and RSO. There are so many techniques and opinions. Let the weed soak for weeks vs. just do a quickwash. Shake, stir, do not agitate. Use this solvent or that... it's crazy. I've made many infusions and...

    Mistake in making a tincture?

    @Doctor Trevor I'd turn your "tincture" into Rick Simpson Oil (RSO). Basically, cook your tincture (outside, NO FLAME) to boil off all the Graves alcohol (How To Make Concentrated Cannabis Oil). You'll be left with a small amount of "oil" / sludge. Doing this will decarb, and you'll be left...

    TIFU: DWC Transplanting

    @Enjoil - VERY nice roots indeed! I haven't had any issues in previous grows; and actually my multi-plant bucket is humming along just fine. I've had root bundles like that before - that's why I decided to go for that 20 gallon bucket... Wanted to see if the plant would get huge if it had enough...

    TIFU: DWC Transplanting

    @The Phantom, thanks. I use General Hydroponics FloraMicro/FloraGro/FloraBloom. I also used General Organics Bio Root, and General Organics CaMg+. I've been tempted to add peroxide, maybe a day or two before adding nutes, but never know the amount to use. I used bleach to clean the buckets and...

    TIFU: DWC Transplanting

    Thanks @sativuhhh. Can't argue that advice, blocking light and bucket insulating is always a good thing! The yellow bucket is actually quite thick and the wooden board cover extends over it enough that I don't think too much light gets in there. I seem to be growing "sludge", not traditional...

    Will White Widow be OK to make RSO

    I've made RSO from White Widow a few times. Traditional RSO does use Indica leaning strains, so WW is a good choice. I very small amount will get you very high and can make you very drowsy. I think the "paranoid" aspect comes from THC itself, and not terpenes, so it's likely that any strain you...

    Isopropyl Alcohol or 151 Proof Everclear

    Hi everyone. So thrilled to find this current topic, since I'm trying to figure this out too. I assume everyone is talking about making RSO and not tincture? I've made RSO a few times. The instructions for RSO always say to use 99% ISO, but I've always used Everclear (I can buy it here in MA)...

    TIFU: DWC Transplanting

    They're both still alive, yay. I discovered both buckets decided to grow a crazy amount of brown goop, even though I cleaned both with a healthy amount of bleach. Maybe I left them open under the lights too long after adding nutes? Not sure, but I think that's why the plant in the red bucket was...
