    I know you are not. It just made me chuckle.

    No ISO here. I feel you, Ethanol all the way. Thanks for your help. Happy extracting!

    I think iso is just something people use if they can't get high proof ethanol.
    Some people claim to love it though

    I prefer naphtha for a cleaner extract when I'm not using butane. I just double distill Coleman's camp stove fuel and get about 3L from a can. Use it to clean up an ISO or methanol/ethanol wash too.

    The word Naphtha designates a boiling point range which includes Benzene, an known carcinogen. Benzene not only can be, but is commonly found in Naphtha. Always read the MSDS before using.

    In the case of Coleman fuel, it doesn't list Benzene, just the following:

    Hydrotreated Light Distillate, CAS # 68410-97-9, OSHA-500 ppm, 100.0
    This product contains:
    *Cyclohexane, CAS # 110-82-7,
    OSHA-300 ppm, ACGIH-300 ppm
    *Nonane, CAS # 111-84-2, ACGIH-200 ppm
    *Octane, CAS # 111-65-9, OSHA-400 ppm, ACGIH-300 ppm
    *Heptane, CAS # 142-82-5, OSHA-500 ppm, ACGIH-400 ppm
    *Pentane, CAS # 109-66-0, OSHA-1000 ppm, ACGIH-600 pp

    The C-6 Hextane, C-7 Heptane, C-8 Octane, and C-9 Nonane are more difficult to remove, as compared to propane, butane, or pentane.

    I can't recall the BP range I take but it's only about 4C between top and bottom 71-75C seems about right. I bought some of the no-name stuff and the lowest bp was around 77. Good enough for me. Not giving it to patients.

    Thank you for this write up, the world is a better place with folks like you. Been playing with distillates over the past yr having a blast (or non blast I should say). 2?: What temp do you run your Soxhlet And do you just collect all in a single flask vac distill and not an utter to catch your different temp varieties? Thanks again and good luck to all!

    About 69c or the boiling point of ethanol.
    It all collects in a single flask and then gets filtered then distilled
