    Thanks. I can handle the expense. Actually runs me about $10/pint for 100%, not 190 proof. I just wanted to make sure I am not ending up with inferior end result.

    It does extract chlorophyll leading to a green taste if it's not a very quick wash but a well made EtOH extract is as good as any BHO any day IMO.

    I do a quick wash (30-45 seconds) and do so under dry ice so very cold! Second run I use for RSO and go about a minute.

    Sounds like a good process. You could probably even go longer to get everything for the second run since taste won't be a concern but getting all of teh goodies out will be.

    Not sure what you mean by green hash. I use it to make an oil, same as QWISO. I just prefer to use something that is safe to consume in case I don't get it all out....

    What about LIMONENE as an extract solvent, thats gonna be the new favorite like PureGold, HolyWater, LiveResin,ect are 10-20% LIMONENE.( Natural or food grade Terp's)

    As mentioned a small jar of holy water, I think, has the same dankness as a bag of weed!

    Yes, chlorophyll is rather soluble in EtOH.
    Limonene boils right about where the cannabinoids do so you could have a solution of them in limonene but you couldn't concentrate it.

    Thats fine because terps Like limonene have healing properties and flavor of there own. I want the limonene in the final product.

    I think the point is that if you don't want to consume a ton of it to get the impact, then you would need to boil it down and doing so would remove the cannabinoids. I don't think Limonene is like an alcohol base that evaporates with air...

    You're going to have to consume an awful lot of it and that doesn't strike me as the healthiest idea.

    I think @Dan Kone may be of assistance. He was using it to "addback" so as to replace terpenes lost with some d-limonene, a controversial practice at best since this addition wasn't from the cannabis plant, as if say reclaimed from a cold trap.

    If I were you I'd pass on d-limonene as a solvent, purging will be difficult to say the least.
