Squishing thread

Recommended Posts

Did a bunch of rosin tonight. Was drinking a bit so maybe not 100% clean but I won't mind. 

 

Did some Irene first then cyborg Bette, Medicine Cookies, gorilla fuck, KKush5. 

 

I I did a lame quick squish in another thread but this time I waited for everything to heat up properly. Here's some random pics.

I'm using a manual press from medisun sun farms. Basically an arbor press with machined aluminum heads that accepts a heating element...same they use for electric nails. This particular model has dual elements...top & bottom. 

 

Technique-wise I set temp to 600-650. Let it heat up like a half hour. Then parchment paper a nug & press. I've added a little bottle jack so I get a lot of pressure without hanging off the handle. Works good for personal use.

Thanks @Limos - I see you are all tooled up - I should have known - I'm going to have to 'borrow' the steam iron from the missus

and do my best with that - off to youtube to perfect the technique if poss.

Thanks again mate.

@Slick rick I would say yes & better yieldeder. 

 

@highdihigh  yeah I picked this up when I decided to stop making BHO. This seemed like a much safer alternative. I'll let the closed loop guys run my stuff if it builds up or sit here jacking it all day lol. 

 

I have done the flat hair iron before with less than spectacular results & really I wasn't happy with this press until I added the bottle jack. Pressure seems to be key.

Perhaps I can persuade 'her indoors' to sit on it (looking round nervously to make sure she's not listening) hehe

So what's the basic idea?

Extracting oils using heat and pressure?

The Thc doesn't evaporate at that high a temp?

I might try doing a few nugs next run.

Looks good Limos nice color and really like the fact that NO Solvents are used.

I tried it once with her hair straightener. 

it worked but seemed scant.

also need a rig to smoke it, it seems.

I just laced a bowl with it.

But if your set up for it, it was very nice.

Yeah I can get a hold of it @Slick rick...might have misrepresented that a bit. These were some beans I got from Zoot a long time ago. They were supposed to be Autos but they did not auto. Got 2 different ones at the tent spot but I wouldn't classify them as stellar just ok.

Had some BHO run stuff the other night & it was very potent but I did not care for the flavor. I think I'm becoming a hard core rosin snob lol
