The different colored compounds in extract

Thread starter #1
Here is a vid I put together on my ipad. It demonstrates what colors are all lurking inside the extract that we love to dab. Did you know alpha pinene, normally clear, gets water white? It does. Assuming each color present in a chromatography seperation is a unique component, it is clear the number of unique things that are in our medicine.

The added bonus of learning this is that we can catch each color seperately then make it usable by purging solvent. As a patient it becomes obvious which color combinations work best, and which ones taste good and which bad and so forth. This technique can tailor a small extract sample to a patients desired mix, discarding the undesired seletively. Of course it takes a commitment to learning laboratory grade purging techniques but it is all pretty simple if you see it done.
