    I read some stuff on here and tried making some qwiso.

    A liquid is considered polar once its dielectric constant is greater than 15. Isopropyl has a dielectric constant of 19.92 and the water 80.4, so the salt and water are more attracted to one another than the alcohol. More is the key word, because salt is marginally soluble in mildly polar...

    Questions getting kief from a micron bag

    I prefer to freeze the trim 24 to 48 hours and JP notes, you stop when you see it starting to turn green from plant debris. That is only around a 50% yield, so a secondary method is needed to harvest the rest.

    Cannabis Oil Extraction Question

    You need to remove the plant material within minutes to limit chlorophyll pickup. The tincture will store months in a dark cool place.

    RSO help loosing my booze!
