Hey Grandpa :48: I was away for a while and still trying to catch up. Nice dabs as usual here :bravo:

I was harvesting my Dinafem Super Silver yesterday and tried something new. I've been extracting with butane, ethanol, dry ice and some other stuff for a few years and my first choice is ethanol because of safety. As we all know things get sticky on the harvest day and normally I prefer to carve the resin from my hands to make some charas to lift my mood up on that exhausting day. This time I poured some ethanol from the freezer into a wide glass and soaked my sticky hands in it. As I expected, cold ethanol took all of the stuff with gentle rubbing.

I am now waiting for the ethanol to evaporate(I don't use heat, only some wind) but let me share the result from one of the previous tests. I dank my hands into a glass full of cold ethanol after trimming(I had to because of the high RH) on sixth week of flowering for my Purple Punch. That plant is a beast and I got 0.2g of extract by defoliating for 5 minutes in the end. It felt great to smoke that because we can't find decent weed due to lockdown. I filled my stash now and I think I won't be in trouble anymore :lot-o-toke: Anyways, here is how that puppy looks;


And here is another cold ethanol extract from previous tests. I put my jars and grinders in freezer with turbo setting and poured cold ethanol in them. I collected the material on the glass by shaking the eth. and transferring to the next jar to repeat the same step. In the end, that one weighted 0.4g and suddenly I realised that I haven't been cleaning these jars for almost 6 years :laugh:

That one was more glassy. Here is how it looks;

I am back with the Super Silver oil extracted from my hands :laugh: With a glasslike texture this puppy weighted 0.56 grams and now in a single joint with some dry Purple Punch nugs and tobacco. I'll blaze that one after posting this.

Peace and happy dabbing folks :48:
