    So I feel like I should be yielding a lot more BHO than I am although I could be wrong.



    I need some advice on how to maximize my yield.


    Ive read conflicting opinions on almost everything I can find about BHO.



    Is it better to use ground up plant material or keep it together?



    Should I pack the extraction tube lightly or more tight?



    How many canisters of butane should i put through a 40 gram glass extraction tube?



    Is vector really the best butane to buy for the price?


    Any answers are much appreciated.


    Ive been getting 3-5 grams after running 4 canisters of butane through two separate 40g extraction tubes. 2 canisters per extraction tube.

    BHO means Butane Honey Oil............

    Run your shit ground up, but not ground up so fine like your rolling a joint. To increase your yield, use better weed. :) Average 10-15% yield is not uncommon, less too.

    Just a quick tip: Search box "Sr. Verde's Concentrate Corner" hit enter, read up a few pages and I think all of your questions will be answered =)

    oh sorry guys, im very familar with butane oil, ive been making that for years, I was getting confused this being in cannabis cafe, I thought bto was some kind of food lol. but you say you use actual bud? Ive only ever used shake and Ive made some bomb ass oil, do you find using bud gives you any more oil as opposed to using shake?

    Of course, buds have more thc than shake does. So, yield goes up. Back to the "Need better yield use better weed" :)

    not exactly all quality diff you can have some bomb bud but the trichrome heads are smalll compaired to other strains with larger trichrome heads

    that alone will change the yield/texture of the stuff


    as well strains with denser coverage in the trichrome fiield will always be nice for hash


    i find the best hash comes from the strauns i have that get that resiny styrofoamy texture feel when you break them up

    5-6 grams of wax from 1 oz of nugs is the norm here :) as much as 7 grams has been acheived. (15%-25%) Only ever using 1 CAN. Deffinately relook your methods.

    Even though you can run one ounce with one of the ~300mL butane cans, I'd rather toss two cans down and spend the extra $3 for the can. If I get two extra hits out of it, break even! :)

    Well then you are willing to sacrifice quality for not much more quantity then...which im not willing to do. While butane is an excellent solvent for this purpose, it will still strip some non actives from the plant matter...Its not 100% actives your extracting. Your also making the process twice as dangerous and bad for the environment by evaporating more butane. With 20%-25% returns already with only one can, id rather be using that second can to make 6-7 more grams of wax than a few more little dabs and more time blasting and waiting:)

    exactly i use 560ml i beleive they are vectors and 56 grams per a gram per 10 ml of solvent is a perfect ratio

    We've done the two pan test, where one can of butane empties into one pyrex dish. The other can of butane empties into a second pyrex dish. See if you can tell the difference? I couldnt....... Looked the same smoked the same........ Perhaps a third can would result in something but I dont know......

    sure it will smell and smoke the same


    i just worrry about spending another 5 bucks on a smidge extra in the first run

    when you can just up the amount of material you run 1 can through and get more out of it

    im telling you 10ml solvet / 1gram of product an easy 6 -8 g of one can (bud willing)

    thats if you have the big vector cans
