    Yes. We must find the root of all evil and extract its essence. I'll smoke it. Bring it on.

    Wow mr.Educk, you know your stuff ! So if I acidify the water with orange juice, will this help extract the alkaloids? I'm talking a much simpler then A/B method, just boiling in acidified aqueous solution for 6 hrs. then straining, then cooking down on low heat until I am left with a "paste". Going to try some soon and report back with the results :-)_~

    Using slightly acidic solution should help speed it up. Let us know how it goes.

    That's not gonna work. You wouldn't want pure THC anyway. It's far less enjoyable that a full spectrum extract.

    Mates of mine got some pure THC from some crazy club promoter. Said it was a terrible experience. WAY high, but not in a nice way. Sounded awful.

    let us suppose one could no longer obtain ether and one wanted to disolve cocaine base, would toluene work?

    It should work just fine.
    How are you planning on salting it? Dry gas or a solution of HCl in IPA?

    hcl acetone, I had hoped it would work as well in toluene?

    It should. The toluene residue will take a little longer to evaporate than ether but that shouldbe the only major difference. An hour in an oven at 105C will dry it completely and shouldn't damage the product.

    Salts have much higher boiling points and are not suited to smoking.

    VERY good post. I think this is a great post that will help alot of people understand the basics of organic chemistry. Extraction is used in alot of situations, even by nonchemists. Lets say you have some Weed and you want to extract some hash-oil, youll need to know this stuff. Youll need to know what kind of solvent youll need, what kind of solvent will dissolve hash oil? Youll need a non-polar like butane or something else. Lets say you have meth or sudafed pills you want to extract, youll need to know what substance these things dissolve in and how to go about it. Excellent writeup, i hope to see more chemistry posts on this site :) .
