Any dangers with Vaping or making ISO hash from plant treated with colloidal silver?

    looking for a bit of scientific knowledge here!

    I misted 100ml of 25ppm Colloidal Silver over about 2 weeks and kept stunted plant in a semi dark cupboard for 2 more but no signs of pollen and fading signs of life.

    Im not going to smoke the plant as I suspect the silver within the plant could potentially be vaporised at combustion temperatures. i believe silver 'boils' at around 2000 degrees C, which is also the temp of a normal butane lighter. However, in theory it should not be affected by the much lower temperatures of a vaporiser. am i correct?

    also, for making ISO hash, silver would not, presumably, dissolve in alcohol, and so should be filtered out with the remaining plant matter after the iso wash?

    if anyone spots any obvious flaws in my logic please shut out, i dont want to ingest silver!

    Thanks for reading!

    I don't know if CS will affect ISO hash.

    But, do not smoke any weed that has been treated with CS, it's toxic that way (or so I've read).

    gee it doesn't sound like it's worth it really - I'd always be wondering if I had contaminated myself.... I'd chalk it up to experience and junk the plant, and maybe next time take a clone of the one you want to reverse and treat that instead. you can grow another plant easier than you can repair damage to your health

    Yeah as others said I wouldn't risk it for a bit of smoke, no way.

    hi guys, i appreciate the safety first approach, and in all likelyhood that is what i will do.

    However, there is so much contradicting info out there. for example this site (http://www.colloidalworld.com/colloidal_silver_dosage.html) suggests taking 1 tablespoon per day orally, 50 ppm as a health suppliment. that is double strength of what i used, plus a fair amount of mine would have dissipated in the air. 1 tablespoon = 17ml. 100ml at 25ppm = 50 ml at 50ppm. so, in theory, i could have safely drank the whole bottle in three days and felt better for it!

    I'm personally dubious about the benefits of CS, but i'd welcome comments on the extraction methods above as a means or eliminating the trace silver.

    From what I understand, there's a big difference between eating and smoking something, especially stuff like CS.
