    That is exactly what it feels like. I can actually get stoned just working out or doing outdoor activities while sober, my eyes are blood shot 24/7, i actually gotta walk around work with eye drops lmao. You see those dudes taking fat ass 6" slabs of bho one time? That used to be me for years lmao then it caught up with me eventually, thats when i noticed the anxiety problems and i feel pretty stupid for abusing it but its too late now. Rosin does it too but not as bad

    The only way to know for sure that it is "organic" and "solvent-less" is to grow/extract it yourself. 99.99999...% of commercial growers/cash croppers are using pesticides and fungicides. There is more than just THC being extracted/concentrated.

    That would be another type of contamination in the extract...
    With rosin-tech your eliminating the solvent contamination.

    You'd be ingesting the pesticides no matter what way you consume it.

    I don't use pesticides + I don't see how that would make flowers better than concentrates considering you'd be ingesting those pesticides either way.

    I wouldn't extract pesticide laden bud, but I wouldn't smoke it in either form(flower or concentrate) either.

    Yep, living soil and no pesticides is the way to go for me. I won't smoke anything else, my health can't afford it lol.

    I was fortunate enough to take Frenchy's workshop A couple of months ago. It was great to see that he preaches the importance of organics and not using pesticides. I could see that it made a big impression on those who weren't truly organic.

    Oh yea and Frenchy's said don't freeze your trim/flowers lol. The water in the trichome head expands and ruptures the head.

    First press the rosin, then BHO the chips. Why use more butane than necessary? If you can still press rosin out, you don't need butane yet. Granted the yield would be low but what else are you going to do, throw the chips away? Has anybody ever ground the chips up and seen how much BHO they can get? Probably about 5% still in there. Whether it would be worth the butane idk, but could use a cheaper solvent. Wonder what happens if you extract with alcohol and then dissolve that greenish extract with butane. Would it dissolve the chlorophyll too or would it come out amber? Maybe you don't have to do the initial extraction with costly butane.

    Vaping 95% for 5 years and choose flowers for their powers. More to the plant than thc. Not everything is best when highly refined or concentrated. Sometimes the personality of the plant may reside in the "green" parts themselves. I choose to let the plant speak.

    Are you in a legal state? They have plenty of choices for bho that go above and beyond and test their product down to 0ppm residual n butane...sooo... Literally nothing more dangerous about it than smoking a j.. In fact look inside your pipe, then look at your dab rig. Which if the two would you want in your lungs?

    Also worth noting that legal enterprises are using pure n butane in closed loop systems so the butane is reusable. Don't know the specifics on how many times they can use it or maybe forever idk

    I've smoked Rosin/Sap+BHO from greendotlabs made from the same strain + I can taste the difference...
    Not that I don't trust their tests, but I don't care to spend 1/4-1/2 a million on a large scale extraction setup that requires me to buy tane repeatedly.

    Rosintech just feels right to me, heat+pressure to release that precious tree sap(just like nature)
    Also, eliminates the steps required to clean BHO extract properly...

    I totally agree with you on that being the better extraction method, especially if yield isn't your main goal. I do think well tested "legal" bho is still better for you than smoking buds though. I've never smoked rosin but I've heard it does taste different kind of burnt taste or so? In your experience is it still a very pleasant taste and high not lacking? Do they really pay that much I'm pretty sure you can get a professional closed loop system around ten grand?! Then again you can get a bomb press for six grand and don't have to do any type of purge so if it's comparable product that's the way I'll go in the future.

    Crazy I smoke blunts and dab regularly. Granted I smoke between me and my girl a qp a week and I make concentrates non stop soooooo ya lol I feel like they are different highs that flower is more medical for my stomach than anything but I add dab chunks and shatter snakes to my blunts as well lol I get what your saying your tolerance goes thru the roof IMG_20160810_091848084.jpg

    Full melt bubble is still the best smoke hands down with rosin, PHO, and then BHO lol

    Problem is I've made bubble, and have done it well, but it doesn't ever seem to be full melt more like kief in a brick... Although I've only tried to dab the bubble twice before I decided out doesn't work well... Any tips?

    Pho (f •uhh) - Vietnamese noodle soup lol thank you food channel.
    Don't think it's dabable haha ;)

    Seriously though what's pho? I've heard of co2 extract haven't tried it and there's always qwiso which I think personally tastes gross and is a waste of bud but that's just my opinion.

    Oh wait.... Propane no? That doesn't seem like the way to go but I'm no chemist.

    Have to use a strainer or micro plainer once you pull out Patty's freeze them. When you keep it brick it won't melt properly. Well made full melt looks like grains of sand/brown sugar. So take Patty's freeze for like 15 mins after drying on damping cloth and make it go back to individual trichome heads
