Ice Extracts Vs BHO
Category: Concentrates | Posted on Wed, November, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
More people hurt themselves trying to make BHO every day. Considering most of the people that are getting hurt are simply just not educated enough to be doing what they are, it's an extremely frustrating situation. If people are getting hurt using marijuana products, it doesn't look that good for the rest of us. But now, with more simple ways of making the extracts with ice rather than butane, it's time people made the switch.
Not only is BHO extremely dangerous to make for those without experience, it can be very unhealthy. Since the substance is made with butane fuel, it can cause major damage to the human body if not purged properly. Inhaling too much butane can cause severe headaches and issues with the lungs. It'll make you sick, basically. This method of obtaining a substance with a higher THC content should only be attempted by those who know what they're doing. The cannabis community can't handle more mistakes made by those who don't know what they're doing. From making the material in small, confined spaces to using the wrong amount of butane, amateur BHO makers need to stop... Now.
Since BHO can be made in a such an awfully unhealthy way, it can be very dangerous. Personally, I believe that if you're going to be looking to get stoned off of some sort of extract, you need to be aware that BHO is bad for you when made in the wrong conditions. If you're getting it from a reputable source, by all means, go for it! But your friend's backyard or kitchen for that matter is not a good place to be making this substance. That is the stuff that will make you ill.
Ice extracts are completely different. They are more difficult and time consuming to make but the end result is worth it. Instead of using the butane fuel to get the THC extracted, this method uses cold water and ice. In making hash this way, you eliminate the danger of an explosion. There's no gasses or flames involved. You won't blow yourself up using this method, even though it's going to be a time consuming matter. The taste of ice extract will also be a higher quality, as well as the high that you get from it. Since the end result contains no toxic substances and is only made with ice and water, there is no risk for the butane sickness that can come with BHO.
Even if the ice method takes more time and is more complicated, the level of risk is extremely low. Making ice extract is the smarter way to get concentrated THC. It won't make you sick if made improperly. If more stoners were using the ice method to get their extracts, then there would be a lot less of this negative attention that the bad BHO runners are getting the cannabis community. Ice is the way to go.
How To Make Ice Hash
Category: Concentrates | Posted on Tue, November, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
Ice extracts are a much safer way to obtain highly concentrated THC, rather than the "easier" butane method. Ice hash is clean and earthy, definitely something every stoner should try at some point. It's not as difficult to make as some people think. Here's a step by step tutorial on how to make ice hash yourself and get a good yield of some serious fire.
What You Need;
3/4oz marijuana (can be gross shake or high quality bud, either will work)
1/2 gallon milk jug
First, take the bud and put it in the coffee grinder, turning it in to a powder. Don't try to put all of it in at once. Grinding about 7 grams at a time usually works pretty well. Once all of the marijuana is ground up, carefully pour it in. Use a funnel of some sort to make sure that you get all of it. Then, take about 7-8 ice cubes and place them on a washcloth. Fold the top of the washcloth over and hit the cubes with the rubber mallet until they're almost powder. Pour that in to the milk jug as well. Next, add cold water to the jug, bringing the level of the substance 3/4" of an inch above where the marijuana level was.
Put the cap on the milk jug and shake it for 5 minutes, then put it in the freezer for 5 minutes. Repeat the shaking/freezing process two or three times. Now, grab the coffee filter and strain out all of the liquid in the jug. Make sure to get all of the liquid strained in to the bowl. With your freezer set to the highest setting, put the bowl of water in the freezer. Be very careful with it and try not to disturb it too much. The bowl should sit in the freezer for around 45 minutes, or until the fluid begins to form a delicate ice layer. It's also a good idea to tap the bowl lightly with a spoon. The trichomes are in the water and the most dense, heavy ones will fall to the bottom of the bowl.
After the liquid forms the thin layer of ice, remove the bowl from the freezer. Don't let the liquid swish around or you'll disturb the settled trichomes. Using a turkey baster or something similar, slowly remove the liquid from the bowl. This is a time consuming process because you can't disturb the settled matter at the bottom. Once the liquid gets down to a very low level, you can use paper towels to help absorb. After you've removed the liquid, take a hair dryer to the mixture, carefully drying it. The mixture should get lighter and be about the same color all the way around.
I'm sure that there are more complex ways to make ice hash but for those without access to better equipment, this is a pretty easy way for anyone to make their own ice hash and without a lot of bud. I hope that this method works for you! If you think you're method is better, let me know! Email your tricks to firstname.lastname@example.org!
