Step 1 (Preparation): Before starting this sequence, it is very important that you take proper precautions, have the proper supplies and the a decent preparation area.

You will need the following supplies: 1 ounce of super dry marijuana, 1 gallon of high proof alcohol solvent (Everclear works best), medium sized Pyrex mixing bowl, large wooden spoon, straining device (Muslin Bag works best), a separate container to catch strained liquid, double boiler setup, silicon spatula, plastic syringes.

Preparation Area: You must also be sure to have the proper ventilation(open windows/fan), as well as an electric stove (gas stoves are more dangerous with solvent), and a fire extinguisher.

Step 2 (Grind): Place 1 ounce of extremely dry and ground up marijuana (sativa or indica) into a medium sized, Pyrex glass mixing bowl. Make sure you can spare a few inches above the marijuana grind, as liquid will be added soon.

Step 3 (Dissolve): Add Everclear or another high proof alcohol solvent which will cover the marijuana in it’s entirety, with about an inch of additional solvent on top.

(Caution: never use rubbing alcohol as a solvent)

Step 4 (Mix): Slowly mix the Everclear and marijuana together in the bowl for just about 3 minutes. Use a large wooden spoon/large fork to mix the marijuana with the solvent, allowing for the solvent to dissolve resin and oils from the herb.

Step 5 (Strain):  Delicately pour the marijuana solvent mix through a straining device e.g(muslin bag, grain, cheesecloth, Thai filter, steeping bag, etc) into a separate 2 quart mixing bowl or large bowl.The strained concoction should be dark with greenish undertones.

 Step 6 (Repeat): Place marijuana material back into original mixing bowl and repeat steps 2, 3, and 4 in order to remove all oil and resin from the marijuana a second time.

(Caution: repeating the straining process a third time will ruin your batch as the remaining marijuana resin will have little to no benefit.)

Step 7 (Boil): Pour dark green mixture from both washes into the top of a double- boiler. Make sure that the bottom pot of the double-boiler is filled with water before turning on the heat.

(Caution: if you don’t have enough space for all of the mix in the double-boiler you can continue to add the remaining marijuana mix as the level in the double-boiler begins to drop during the evaporation process. )

Step 8 (Evaporate): Begin heating the liquid on high setting until the top pot of the double boiler starts bubbling, then turn the heat off promptly.Allow the heat from the bath of water to heat the top pan until the Everclear or high proof alcohol solvent has evaporated. Once you see that the dark green mixture is bubbling, immediately turn off the heat. This process can take anywhere from 15-25 minutes.

Step 9 (Almost Done): You are done when the liquid has become a thick green substance and no longer bubbles. If the liquid has ceased to bubble but is somewhat runny, you can turn the heat back on low until it starts bubbling again and you are satisfied with consistency.

Step 10 (Cool Down): Use plastic syringes to draw up the remaining which will allow you to create individual portions for future medical use. The semi thick liquid will become thicker once it cools. Be sure to dry the left over oil in a cool, dry place.

Reminiscing my first date with dabs: Hash concentrates are the future

smoking bho dabs

Yesterday my mind was blown. I had just went to my local dispensary in Riverside and bought 1g of blue dream nug run crumble and boy was I blown away. This was the first time I tried using dabs and utilizing my oil rig and boy I have never had a high like that before in my entire life and I have been smoking marijuana for over 15 years. It was by far the single most incredible high of my life. Just one puff and I felt as if I had smoked a whole joint by myself. Granted I went all out on a full dab rather a half, but nonetheless it is some strong shit. The price of the dab was pretty high though at my local dispensary. I was charged $50.00 for just 1g of this shit. For the same price I could get an eighth or a fourth of weed, but I doubt it would give me the same effect if I smoked it all at once.

So how did it feel? At first I felt a huge rush to my head and was light headed for a bit. It was like a wave had just came crashing down upon you and you just completely lose your balance. The effect lasted about 10 minutes and after that the hair was still left standing on my arm just from the rush I just had. My body was relaxed and I had an amazing feeling of not caring about any of the problems in my life. The next time I hit up my dispensary I know I gotta save some serious cash and purchase 3 grams of this shit.

Are Dabs Better than Traditional Bud?

dabs

I find myself running into this problem on several occasions. What Should I Smoke? I have some oils but at the same time I have some nice blue dream flowers and a little bit of Sour OG Kush. Usually when I hit the oils I get knocked on my ass, but when I smoke my bud I just get that relaxing high. I know oils are a lot stronger than bud and a lot cheaper, but sometimes I just have that urge to chill out and just smoke bud. Maybe it is because I have been smoking bud for over 10 years and have only just started hitting dabs.

Whenever my buddies come over we always hit the bud and never the oils together. They seem to prefer passing the bong around rather than using wraps or joint paper too. Below I put some of the pros and cons of hitting bud and oils to help you make your decision when you run into this same problem.

BUD

DABS

PROS

CONS

PROS

CONS

▪You can never go wrong with some good bud

▪I prefer the taste of some good bud, sometimes you can get a sweet tangy taste that lingers for awhile

▪ Easier to get a hold of than good quality oils (although my local dispensary is carrying dabs now)

▪ Seems to be the go to product when hanging out with friends and just relaxing

▪More expensive than oils

 

▪Cheap $$$$

▪Can be made from using the trim

▪ A greater high than using bud

▪Quicker acting than Bud

▪Maybe healthier than bud if you have some well purged shit as the resin content built up in your lungs is lower

▪Unless bought, it is dangerous and time consuming to make

▪Sometimes the concentrates can get me too fucked up to the point where I am on my ass

▪ Can be expensive if you are using buds to make it

 

As you can see there are arguments on both sides on why you should get fucked up using one of the other. The consensus is that dabs for personal use will get you higher than you have ever been before, but bud will allow you to chill with friends without that freaking out you will get from wax.
