I recently made RSO using grain alcohol, which everything about this extract is natural and or organic. I highly recommend this over edibles if you can and really wanna taste the terpenes in edible extracted form. I just take it in a shot of Maple Syrup so it doesn’t stick to my teeth. The Dude would be proud ehh!… Here is the steps….
1. Soak your material in jars in the freezer up to 2 days.
2. Strain material using unbleached coffee filters……should be bright green. I found a funnel helps back into Everclear jug if u need to save some of the green dragon.
3. Open kitchen window and make sure it’s well ventilated with fan. You will get a buzz from alcohol fumes.
4. Pour mix into 2 to 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup.
5. Set up a double boiler technique bringing the water to a light simmer.
6. Adjust heat accordingly but go low and slow 5 to 6 hours.
7. Halfway through you’ll want to swoosh the sides.
8. DONT BURN IT……it should look a lil runny it’s like a glaze. When the alcohol smells gone its done.
9. When all is said and done and I recycle them but these little plastic syringes off Amazon really are the most effective storage method for this stuff..
It’s very tacky and sticky. Dries on contact with teeth but the flavor n high are incredibly profound since it’s so pure. Hope this helps.
Sensi-mi_ya, I make QWET for my wife who has MS and it helps her A LOT! I have been making it for years and have found through trial and error some little tricks. If you soak it too long, it pick up too much cholraphyll and lipids which bothers my wife’s stomach.
I decarb the flower first- 240 deg. for 40 minutes, turn off the oven and let it sit for 5 minutes more.
I use dry ice to freeze the everclear and the buds. Put the everclear in 1 gallon freezer ziplock and the flower in a separate 1 gallon ziplock. Sandwich them in between 2 pieces of dry ice. After 2 hours combine them and re-sandwich in between the dry ice pieces. After 30 mintues, manipulate the bag so the alcohol gets everywhere. After another 30 minutes, strain through coffee filter (the liquid should be golden, not green; green is chloraphyll). Pour in a pyrex dish and I use my fan for my carbon filter with duct attachment to evaporate the alcohol. After about an hour (depending on how much you are evaping) it will be sticky goodness that you scrape with razor blades.
This way you don’t have to cook it afterward.
I always run a second run with the once used plant material and new everclear.
I put the dry ice and bags of product in a cooler to freeze and stuff towels in there to keep the dry ice from evaporating too quickly. The dry ice really gets the trichomes to break off and avoids unwanted residuals. It still sticks to your teeth, but it tastes much, much better than the green extraction.
That is great advice for removing plant fats and lipids thank you! I thought about that as well thank you… and I think if I was using trim I would have but this was popcorn and nugs I was using.
Thank you for the info Sensi! If our outdoor plants are successful I hope to give making RSO a try myself. Do you know by chance how much material should work with a fifth of Everclear? For example if I were to want to process four oz, how much Everclear should I have on hand, is what I’m wondering.
Btw: I have found with the stuff I get from the store here in Chicago, I place however much I want in a small blueberry with a little of the berry’s center hollowed out, using a small wooden skewer. Pop it down the hatch and sleepy time tonight. 🙂
Thanks again, cheers! 🙂
I’d say for a QP you’d want about a half gallon….possibly more…..I tried to save alil clear….too so I had some to clean utensils or any residue off.
I will say I probably could have rand NOT the Cannabis twice….But the ALCOHOL twice with a second batch of reefer…….
REALLY! put my ass too sleep hahahaha. Unfortunately it was a hybrid so I just got really evenly high…..taste good tho.
🙂 Thanks ever so much Sensi!
coconut oil cleans your rso tools perfectly and it make a great treat for later.
If you sit those jars of green liquid out in the sunshine the sun will clear out the chlorophyll and leave you with a nice golden colour in improved flavour 🤙
I did my last run outside in the sun and it came back a nice honey brown
This would be a great video tutorial. You hardly ever find folks explaining how to on RSO.
