"Iso hash" (Easy and potent)

    Hey everybody. My first thread here on rollitup is gonna be a HOW TO on making a smooth and potent concentrate known as "Iso hash" Ive been growing indoor and outdoor for a little over a year and done over 15 strands but to be honest this was my first try at making hash I found it extremely easy and I wish I would have started doing it alot sooner. Thank you for the read, good luck.

    1- trim, buds, or hash
    2- isopropyl alcohal (for this one I used 50% isopropyl rubbing alcohal but you could use 98% or similar and probably get a stronger yeild; this worked perfect for me. Also, some people say you can use acetone (nail polish remover) instead, I can neither confirm or deny if that works. The alcohal did though)
    3- A container capable of holding liquid and sealing. (a mason jar works).
    4- A glass tray. (i used a small round one about the size of both hands put together. for bigger amounts you could maybe use a caserole dish. You're going to want to use glass that wont just break from being heated.)
    5- A straight edge razor
    6- Patience

    In your mason jar you will add your trim and isopropyl alcohal until the mixture is thin enough to allow the thc to be seperated from the plant matter. (So a little more alcohal than weed.)
    Then you want to stir it around for about 20 minutes before you close the jar.
    At this point I enclosed the jar inside of a few bags, then put that in a box. (this is to make sure no light touches the project. It will lower your final THC potency.)
    After two days I took the jar out. It should be really dark green maybe even black. Seperate the liquid from the solid and throw away the trim leftover. You should now be left with just this dark liquid.
    Add the liquid to the glass tray or casserole dish and put the dish on a warming center or very low heat until all of the alcohal has evaporated from the liquid. You DON'T want to boil this.
    You are now left with a sticky yet malleable hashish thats easy to smoke too just scrape it off with the razor and store for usage.

    why do you want all the dark gross stuff? everything I read says the thc is in the alcohol within seconds of it touching it. so a quick shake should be good enough. This is all theory and congencture on my part but I do have some iso evaping on top of my fridge right now after a quick shaking. We'll see if it gets you high... I'm not putting my glass bottom bowl on my gas range. Just redid the kitchen and my wife would kill me if I burned it down.

    I have only made it 2 times the first time I followed oakleys (if I remember correctly) recipe and it turned out very clean and potent. The second time I figured I could just wing it and did not use measurements and let the alcohol contact the material too long ETC.. long story short I will not do that again. I will however always make a second run at the used material because although it was not as clean there was still plenty of thc to be had. 2 batches does not make me an expert by any stretch of the imagination but I suggest reading a few of the stickies and run a batch where no shaking is involved. I appreciate the fact that you took the time to write out what you have discovered but having went from one extreme to the other I can say for sure that your method is not really the best way to go.

    How did it come out? Ive read that too but I figured it wouldnt hurt to let it set.

    @charface thank you for your input and I agree. Not the best method of creating hash. There are far better ways.

    yep char, thatd be me.

    Cool, I`m actually glad I messed up the second time so I could see the difference for myself.

    oakley1984 Well-Known Member

    I've seen lots of Oakley's work..... phenomenal....

    I've personally used Oakley's method for ISO oil, and it turned out exceptionally well.... just takes a lot longer than BHO.... Quality is very, very similar!

    just scraped it right now. Damn shit was taking forever to evap so I put it on the cable box and bam done.
    Not sure I want to smoke it though. Better wait for a test subject to come over lol. I dont actually like hash much but my buddy smokes one of those electric cigs with oil in it all day.
    This shit is not oil. Its gooey on the outside but cutting it with the razor broke it more than cut it.
    so anyway my method was to freeze the shake and the iso overnight. Filled a mason jar with shake. Filled it up with iso. Shook it a few times. Put it in the freezer for 5 minutes. Shook it one more time. Poored it through 3 coffee filters. Let it evap. scrap with razor.
    One thing though is you cant poor a full mason jar through the strainer so some of it sat in the jar for more than 5 minutes. Probably more like 10 or 15 additional as I slowly kept the filter topped off with the jar.

    You only pour the alchohol on the weed and shake that thing for 30 seconds and then pour it off. It should be an amber sort of color. When you get that black colored hash, it has all kinds of clorophyll in it which hurts your overall products flavor in a negative way. There is some thread here on RIU that is a great reference on how to get some nice amber colored oil, and I know for a fact that he didn't leave the alchohol and the weed together for 24 hours. Lol! I have also heard that you don't want to use ISO that is below 90%. I can't remember the reason why though. Anyways I am not saying the shit that you made won't get you high or anything but it just won't taste as good as it would have if it was an amber color when finished.

    yea i just read that thread. This was just a test run of 1 jar. I have a bunch more that Im going to use oakleys method on. i like the look of that oil.
    for the record thats my dirty fingers that made it black. it scrapped up light brown until I rolled it into a ball with my fingers. My butt fingers. Wanna smoke it?

    Cannaboss91 Member

    Yeah I just was posting my personal experience and it came out dark and the flavor was similar to weed butter for edi les honestly. I suggest BHO hash lots of youtube videos on it. Definetly if you are going to make iso you probably shouldnt let it sit as long as I did haha. But better to learn from my mistake than your own
