    [SIZE=-1]*WARNING: This specific guide on how to make hash oil calls for the use of acetone – a very flammable solvent. Be sure to never inhale acetone or work with it around any sources of flame, heat or gas. Before smoking the finished hash oil, be sure all of it has evaporated to ensure you are smoking pure hash oil goodness!*[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=-1]Ingredients:[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]- Half ounce of mid-grade marijuana or better[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]- 80-100% pure acetone(most nail polish removers - the purer the better)[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]- Small glass bottle[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1] [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]Step One:[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]The first step to making hash oil is decarboxylating your weed. To do this, simply grind or cut up your weed very fine. Place it on a baking sheet with aluminum foil underneath and put it into a pre-heated oven at 325° F for five minutes. The more surface area the weed takes up over the baking sheet, the better. [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1] [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]Step Two:[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]After the five minutes in the oven, the second step on how to make hash oil is to put this grinded weed into the small glass bottle. Then add twice the amount of volume in acetone than there is weed, so if there is an inch of grinded weed in the bottle, add two inches of acetone. Close the bottle well and, in order to know how to make hash oil, it is imperative that you shake it very, very well. [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1] [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]Step Three:[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]The third step in making hash oil is to place this bottle in a dark place for two days, allowing the THC to dissolve into the acetone. After the two days, use a coffee filter to strain all of the liquid into a flat dish. [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1] [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]Step Four:[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]The most important step in knowing how to make hash oil is to allow this acetone-cannabis liquid to evaporate. In order to make perfect hash oil, allow it evaporate for about 3 days in a dark, well-ventilated area. This is exactly how to make hash oil, as the resulting product after the three days is a dark, oily substance that needs to be scraped from the dish. [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1] [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]There it is, a four step process on exactly how to make hash oil! The recipe usually yields in hash oil about 1/10 the weed put into it, so this recipe will give you about a gram and a half of nice oil. Now that you’ve been given a simple hash oil recipe, there is no excuse now to saying you don’t know how to make hash oil.[/SIZE]

    step one is unnecessary unless you plan to disolve it into alcohol and take it as a tincture??

    people who smoke hash oil don't 'need to decarboxylate, the heat from the flame does that as you smoke it.

    Step one is completely unnecessary, end of.

    Heat is not required to remove the carboxyl group although it WILL speed up the process.

    Decarboxylation occurs naturally over time as the cannabis bud dries. As we are more interested in harvesting the trichomes with the solvent rather than the cannabinoid content within the vegetable matter it's self, full decarboxylation of the capitate stalked trichome glands occurs well before it does in the vegetable matter.

    This makes the heating of properly dried cannabis bud to 'decarboxylate' a redundant act and has potentially detrimental effects on the finished product, Rick Simpson heats his oil to decarboxylate because he makes his oil in large batches from fresh plants in vats of naptha.

    A proper understanding of what is a very, very simple chemical reaction helps.
