    Well Marc is back home, good stuff. Glad I'm not paying to keep someone in jail that shouldn't be there.

Can you still harvest after frost?

THC is not effected by frost, is it?

If we can extract THC and make hashish from cannabis using the ice water extraction method, it stands to reason THC would survive frost.

Would the weed still be smokable?

If not smokable, which extract method would you recommend, and why?

The plants die after the first HARD FROST. When that happens, the trichs start to degrade the longer they are left in the SUNLIGHT> The plant will also start to dry up and fall apart.

If you can get 198 proof ethanol, I'd do an alcohol extraction.

Others like 99% ISO, I'd prefer Food grade alcohol myself.

Thanks, I agree. We are ingesting this fine commodity. It makes sense to ensure the herb is clean and pure.
