It's pretty crazy I usually run it twice once it cools and the viscosity increases not much movement occurs but that honeycomb oil is more of a novelty item it looks cool and is just more pure I would say.. I notice my yields go down the more I run it wight wise which kinda make sense as it smells like weed so something must be evaporating off it... I don't get oil anymore it's all earwax all day overhere
There is a very small amount of water that sticks to the oil, but if you stir it up for 2 seconds you can just pour it off. Afterwards, you just have a very small ring of oil to clean off the bowl. 2 reasons I like this method is the ease of obtaining the bho after. And 2, nothing is wasted or sticks to the plate and clean up is easy. The color of running pure thc is almost translucent with a tinge of gold. I personally have never seen anyone do it this way nor have I seen the same quality. :wink::peace:
Not a good method at all in my opinion and from experience. The last thing you want in your oil/budder/wax/shatter etc is moisture. And to top that off you didn't even vacuum purge meaning you 100% for sure have solvents in your product still.
The proper way is to grab a pyrex dish with a layer of parchment paper/oil slick inside or a silicone baking tray and blast into that. Have that either sitting on a griddle at low heat or in another tray with warm water in it (You want your dish around 110-130 degrees for blasting) Blast into your dish and let sit on the griddle or hot water bath until you have a thick gooey consistency. At that point scrape things up or fold into place if using parchment paper or oil slick.
Than put that in your vacuum chamber with the oil at a temp of around 150-165 degrees or when malleable. Then vac to 25-29hg (depending on pump) and purge until your product holds steady at room temps. That's a quick overview of how to properly make quality BHO..
However BHO kinda sucks in comparison to a true "Ice Wax" which is solvent-less and smokes much smoother with a full flavor. Bho will come and go. True hash has been around forever and now Ice wax is killing it in the scene.
Well the boiling point of butane is -1 degrees C. That means that the solvents are all gone by the time your finished. The fluid oil afterwards contains no byproducts as long as your using the correct butane. Same as if your blasting it into a dry bowl then heating it up to release the last of the butane.`As far as ice wax, you'll note from my profile that I am more than familiar with the benefits and the best way to prepare it. This isn't a comparison thread, Just a different way to make bho using only thc crystals.

Edit: This recipe only works with pure butane. I'm assuming thats what everyone uses
I'll take that deal, I am in whistler lots ;-)

Yes butane has a very low boiling point that far below room temps but it gets trapped in the product itself do to its viscosity. As for quality butane yes you can use Dodo/Newport or Vector instead of the Power 5x and 7x which is known to contain paraffin and leave behind solvents. Go do some research and get back to me. You will see i'm only trying to help you not make you look dumb.
Once purged properly you will a quality product like this (Two examples)
What do you consider "Pure Butane"? N-Tane?
I'm open minded, don't get me wrong. Just the first time anyone ever said this was a bad idea, and I'm not exactly new to the game. I am having a hard time finding mention of impurity residue.
I get my Butane from the same place I get my CO2. It's 99.7% pure.
The stuff I end up with has the consistency of warm caramel but with a lighter color. Similar to your second picture.
By all means, educate me if I'm wrong, I'm not trying to sell my method. Just trying to provide people with a different way of making bho
Edit: Not worried anyone is going to make me look dumb my friend.
Been working for Intrawest/KSL for too long. Still, I'm glad I can ski to work everyday
