Anyone else starting to see faces in their rosin? Perhaps I should lay off the product...
I want to make a happy new clear pun but i wont
Can you make iso shatter?
Also what is your method for extracting the alcohol ?
I dont know probably.
Basically all shatter is, hash OIL
Spread in thin layer and heated up in a vacuum oven dried and cooked to a crispy shatter consistency. Makes it easier to handle i suppose. About the only advantage i can think of.
But, your cannabis oils are, and want to be,
Its just who they are dont make them change.
I see what you mean. I extract using ISO alcohol and when I see that it is still in a honey oil form it makes me nervous as I think there's still alcohol in the oil , if I got BHO that is a bit runny I'd be even more parroid . maybe its just me but I find when it is in the form of shatter it taste nicer and much smoother.
A few extract pics. Bho and drysift
This is some mk ultra live resin mid purge and getting whipped.
This is some forum cookies x lbl sift
A mix of mk ultra and silverAK crumble

I heard recently on Hash Church that THCA, CBD, and CBDA are are crystalline compounds. Whereas, THC is an oil. This made me wonder about the role of temperature in rosin production and the various changes in physical form the finished rosin can take (e.g. thin oil versus a more buttery consistency that clearly looks more crystalline). Do you have any experience with extraction temp. being correlated with extract form and consistency? My experience to date, working with about 15 different strains, is that the resting state of the rosin (oily, shattery, buttery, etc.) at room temp. is not significantly effected by either extraction temp. or post-extraction temp. (such as freezing the extract immediately on pressing). Rather, I've found that such characteristics of the finished rosin are predominantly strain-dependent. Thank you.
Yes. Thca crystalline aka thc acetyl.
Yes temp would effect the extract but strain can as well like you discovered. I think more so in solvent free extraction. But i don't do the pressings around here myself.
You would have to setup a experiment with 1 strain and a whole bunch of different controlled variables
When you say recrystallization, do you mean the molecule has recycled from THCA>THC>THCA...or is it more akin to crystals moving in and out of solution, similar to when you condense/reduce a phenolic- or sugar-rich hydroethanolic extract (e.g. Crataegus berry) via rotavap and you see the precipitation of what can no longer stay in solution?
Precipitated out of solution. Just so happen to be working on it today as luck would have it. Must be Tuesday Someone posted a patent on this or another thred here if you want the details
white widow and longs peak blue shatter. 13grams

sum stuff I made few weeks ago it was Tahoe,whitewidow and Marionberry mix
Sum white widow fresh frozen blast it was tasty
Here are a few shots of my dehydrator purged bho. I'll be getting a vac chamber in the near future, but I've been pretty damn happy with the results i'm getting from the dehydrator.
I just ordered one of them inductions heat how do u like yours?
Some Live Resin extracted from living soil grown Cookies. Sugaring up nicely and oozing the terp sauce. Totally blown away by the flavor when I tried it for the first time. Nothing I've made before compares, had to share.
Got a new rig and some terps to go with it.
