Above average question! Maybe you could do an ice water extraction and collect the resin heads. Then do an alcohol extraction and have it tested to see what the difference is. I don't think the question is really answerable because every plant has different said compounds.Can anyone tell me what compounds the decapitated stalk contains?
The workshop was full sorry, double Tangie Banana sound unrealFrenchy is the San Diego class full?
Jess and I would like to attend.
PM is fine fopr response
PS a grower at my work produced a 1/4 of some pretty fine double tangie banana trim which we ran .
it came out really nice Ill have pics soon.
I get that. But at what point do we as consumers have to decide when something is a fair price or not. Im saying as a consumer 60 bucks per bag is price gouging. Not when their direct competition is 20 bucks cheaper. Then you have to consider size of the business. Do they have the ability to buy in bulk and make a profit. Or are they small time and have to charge more to cover thier overhead.
Now as a consumer i come here and see what people are using, I also go over user reviews. Complaints about things are easy to find. Like most of the bags on amazon. Lots of complaints on here and on reviews. Also those were around 30-60 for a 8 bag set.
Now I have seen a lot of good talk about Original Bubble Bags, Boldt bags, Willys bags, and another set I cant remember. Then I do a price/feature comparison and and make my choice from that.
Boldt bags were eliminated for 4 reasons, price, no single all mesh buying option, price gouge on their machine(frenchy bags @250 and machine @150 plus shipping Same machine on amazon for 99 free shipping), and incorrect sizes in their "frenchy approved set" the 160 73 and 45. When the correct bags are 190,160,45,25.
I went through their website and not one user review.
Of the 2 remaining I chose willys as they have all mesh over the Original BBags.
Hey Sorry it took me so long I have not checked my RU for a while. I prepare moist patties for the freeze dryer but if I dry in a room I want to take off as much humidity as possible before chopping as fine as possible the resin and spreading it wide on parchment paper. Good luckHey Frenchy, Weedlaw here.
Watching your excellent video for the 20th time. Towards the end you talk about drying with a wet 45 bag in your hand with medicine in it, and you explain how you would dry if you had a drying room. But then you say you won't press it dry with a towel, etc because you want to make a big patty and being moist helps.
My question: it seems to imply you are prepping big patties for a freeze dryer. Is that what you are doing in this video? Of course, the info about extraction is amazing, down to debunking the idea that ice knocks the trichomes off. I always knew this was bunk. Ice is there to keep the water cold so the trichomes are not sticky in the collection bags. God, that makes so much sense.
Anyway, curious if the way you are collecting in this video is going towards a freeze dryer and not a drying room. I have studied sublimation a lot in the last three days and am very sure (see my note above) I can do 90% on the cheap and get very good results.
That is my question, stated again, are you using a freeze dryer during the time you made this vid? The answer will help because if you are then I won't go through the process of trying to hand dry it before going into the deep freeze and vacuum.
Love ya Frenchy...one of the best instructional vids of all time and I watch them hours a day on many topics. OLD SCHOOL HASH RULES!!!!
(say hi to the Mendo boys if you see them)
Cool. Thanks for the reply.Hey Sorry it took me so long I have not checked my RU for a while.

UPDATE: I have kept a 150mm hg of pressure in the Foodsaver container at 5F for 2 days. Not bad for a cheap pressure vessel and pump set up.Cool. Thanks for the reply.
I have fashioned a cheap freeze dryer.
Foodsaver is where I got the pressure vessel. I got a square one which is 6x6x5 and a long one which is 12 x6x5. Very sturdy non-toxic plastic. They come with a fitting for a Foodsaver vacuum coupling and a small dimple that shows when the vacuum is in place. The red thing on the right with the guage on it is a simple break bleeding gun. $19 dollars for the vacuum gun and $29 for the two pressure vessels.
From Foodsaver I had to also buy, at the exorbitant price of $3 each, the 'male' coupling...which is the black piece in the picture..and a plastic tube with two fittings on either end that fit into the black coupling. I had to cut the tube in half since the other end of the tube had a Foodsaver coupling on it as well, and all I needed was a plain piece of plastic tube to fit on the red vacuum gun. If you blow up the picture, I have it at 50 mmhg (millimeters of mercury).
To test it, I cooked up some carrots and mashed them, put them in a bowl, and put 100mm of vacuum in the chamber and put them in a 5 degree freezer. It has been holding pressure for two days at this temp.
So, when I do the extraction, I will lay a layer of tyvek wrapped food grad dessicant at the bottom of the chamber, put a steel mesh on it, then another layer of dessicant (more surface area exposed this way rather than just pile it up at the bottom) and another steel mesh on top of that. I will put the 25 micron cloth with the medicine in the chamber, get it frozen first, then pull a vacuum and let it sit for a day or two. Then, put it in the refrigerator at 36 degrees for a couple of hours. This 'heating' under pressure is when sublimation happens. Then back into the freezer for a few more hours.
Of course, I will start out with a small amount. I figure i will try for removing about 70 percent of the water (I will weigh everything first so I know how much water was removed). I figure the hot water bottle and a small fan when I 'mash the terpenes' will also remove water vapor caused by the increased temp.
I will be all in at about $50. If it works, which I am certain it will, I will have a freeze dryer to meet my needs.
I will keep you guys posted. Of course, the cost of the machine, extra buckets, new dedicated bags for just this and the micron cloth probably put me back about $175. But, as Frenchy said, it pays for itself very quickly.
