what is your process for getting the really pliable almost powdered hash from bho? some guys are even making white shit!
No method is available for the way my stuff is processed, its a scientific method.There is no cook for x amount of time with x amount of heat.In my case ill give some tips that in my experiences make it more pliable.
4.The biggest tip to make it pliable is it all has to do with surface area,ill let you figure it out from there.(No one came to me and said here's the pot of gold..The best stuff is made with an all natural heat source,as in it never touches the stove/oven, that i can confirm
No offense but i can make pure gold with old stale leaves so starting material isn't everything.....
And for those with a bit of a background read up on this and you'll understand what makes it pliable enough so you can leave prints on it, i have made stuff so pliable they could lift your prints rite from the stuff lol: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terpene
(The first pics are of older stuff, the newer stuff all comes out the same...pliable like putty. I used to use a different process before i came across this one....)
in its pure form, it(THC) is a glassy solid when cold, and becomes viscous and sticky if warmed.
So i can guarantee you this, the pliable part of it is not from the thc if you catch my drift
Final tip (NEVER EVER USE A VAC THERE GARBAGE...YOUR STUFF EVAPORATES,IM NOT ABLE TO DISCUSS WHY ATM BUT THE THE PLIABLE PART LITERALLY IS GONE AFTER A VAC OR TWO.ANY ONE THAT'S SMOKED PLIABLE STUFF KNOWS THE TRUE PECKING ORDER) & Look into Essential oils
thats were the bho process was lifted from in the first place....
Most flowers contain too little volatile oil to undergo expression and their chemical components are too delicate and easily denatured by the high heat used in steam distillation. Instead, a solvent such as hexane or supercritical carbon dioxide is used to extract the oils. Extracts from hexane and other hydrophobic solvent are called concretes, which are a mixture of essential oil, waxes, resins, and other lipophilic (oil soluble) plant material.
Although highly fragrant, concretes contain large quantities of nonfragrant waxes and resins. Often, another solvent, such as ethyl alcohol, which is more polar in nature, is used to extract the fragrant oil from the concrete. The alcohol is removed by evaporation, leaving behind the absolute.
Supercritical carbon dioxide is used as a solvent in supercritical fluid extraction. This method has many benefits including avoiding petrochemical residues in the product and the loss of some "top notes" when steam distillation is used. It does not yield an absolute directly. The supercritical carbon dioxide will extract both the waxes and the essential oils that make up the concrete. Subsequent processing with liquid carbon dioxide, achieved in the same extractor by merely lowering the extraction temperature, will separate the waxes from the essential oils. This lower temperature process prevents the decomposition and denaturing of compounds. When the extraction is complete, the pressure is reduced to ambient and the carbon dioxide reverts to a gas, leaving no residue. An animated presentation describing the process is available for viewing.
Supercritical carbon dioxide is also used for making decaffeinated coffee. Although it uses the same basic principles, it is a different process because of the difference in scale.
The Budderking(Aka:Marc Emery) was not waving around a tube or following some crackpot on youtube,there was an underlining scientific basis to creating the world famous "Budder".True budder is the work of a master not an impostor, you cant just try to replicate some fools process who doesn't know how to make the shit in the first place.Base your methods on science and not youtube videos and you will go very far
And im not an all knowing being but i HAVE talked to MANY people high up in industry and many longtime concentrate users and they all say the same thing:
No matter who makes it,or how, the pliable stuff is the strongest by weight, the easiest to manage, and the way its SUPPOSED to be made. All this shatter is bullshit, not trying to offend anyone but its true.....
