Dictionary of the RAE (Royal Spanish Academy), definition “concentrate” to “concentrate” Chem. Increasing the proportion of the matter dissolved in the solvent.
The scene of both recreational and medicinal cannabis is a plot evolving.
While the history of Spanish wine always linked to cannabis imports hashish from Morocco and the self-cultivation developed by the “people of interior”, about 15 years or so ago the thing was changing, grows first opened, the first monthlies and gradually all the cannabis culture of our Dutch neighbors was introduced in our country, being the model to follow more or less stores and growers.
Throughout the years we have developed our own Cannabis personality, learning models such as the Dutch and also from a few years of cannabis culture Yanky-cannadiense ago.
in the United States, especially in the West and Canada, where they are doing the most important advances, both from marijuana dispensaries, such as farmers working for them coast.
They have taken a step forward and in a normal clinic can find different types of yerba both bio and hydro, food (muffins, cookies, chocolates etc), and different concentrates marijuana (Budder, oil, glass, wax, solventless etc. ).
This is where we will stop to explain that are concentrated, types and differences exist and what are the main techniques used.
There are two main strands to schools or when making concentrates. Those who use chemical solvents such as n-butane, ethanol, isopropyl alcohol etc and instead just use water and ice. Not for me to decide which technique is most appropriate. From my own experiences, both work very well as long as done right.
There are many nicks “user webs” American / cannadiense who has been researching the different techniques and the results hanging in both specialized internet forums ( icmag, tokecity etc), and Youtube. Names such as “Mattrize1 ”,” Skunkman “,” Bubleman “,” Gray Wolf “etc.. are known within this culture. Here in Spain, for years, this way of consuming cannabis has been leaking slowly and more and more users. It is also to thank people who, altruistically, have been developing and perfecting the various techniques on forums and websites. Names like “blond”, “susantidad”, “skywalker”, “Leocaudios”, “Jeep” etc are an inexhaustible source of information thanks to post in forums like Cannbis Cafe .
Chemical solvent extractions.
BHO (Butane Hash Oil):
This stands for defining the quintessential Yankee concentrate. It is an extraction solvent which is used as 0% Butane impurities.
BHO (X-Kush) BHO (Gum Machine)
The technique is simple but has its risks to be a highly volatile gas such as butane gas. Material is introduced into a steel pipe or usually inoxsidables borosilicate. On one end of the tube to the gas cylinder tube pass through dissolving cannabinoids yet to deposit as liquid gas in the glass container we use to pick it up is downloaded. Is typically used as a filter or a mesh of 50 microns or coffee filters. And the result is a semi translucent oil of power and excellent flavor. We will explain in another article each technique in a more developed form.
It is a way of presenting the BHO crystallized form.
If BHO is well done almost all varieties normally crystallize after heating to a certain temperature.
This technique was discovered by Canadian Budderking which said it had discovered a cannabis concentrate very powerful and spectacular flavor.
This is merely concentrated emulsion of a BHO. It often happens unintentionally, by subjecting the BHO at certain temperatures, this can become emulsified oily texture changing to something more solid. Looks like toffee depending on BHO. If you want to make Budder just have to submit our oil at a temperature of between 40 º c-60 º c and scrape with a stick until emulsified.
Another highly chemical solvents used in the extraction of cannabis. Pure ethanol or 96% is usually the most used.
There are different ways of extracting cannabinoids ethanol. From a laborious extraction where we can recover the ethanol simple extractions which do not need any laboratory equipment. The result is a resin in which its quality is dependent on the type of extraction and the quality of the material used.In a normal extraction where we do not recover the ethanol, much depends on the material used.Yerba If we use the resulting oil can contain much chlorophyll if the grass was not cured or if we leave it too long to act ethanol. When the resin resulting from dry pollen extraction (kif) used oil goes much clearer, with less impurities and taste better.
These are primarily concentrated chemical extraction, now let’s see the other side where only water, ice and different meshes are used to extract the trichomes of the plant, creating a concentrated extraction “without chemical solvents” called in the Anglo slang: Solventless.
The first person in my opinion (although there are references in the book HASHISH) started or rather popularized make water hash was, Mile Pollinators. It would take a few years until various companies began refining the technical and market quality as other meshes: bublesbags, X-tor, etc.. Within this strand are many Anglo characters or by a commercial motive or altruistically’ve been debugging this technique on the Internet.
Mazar Ice wax solvent less
Nicks as Buble Man, Matt Rize or Seleccta Nikkita have become authentic “chocolatiers” across the pond, but have nothing to envy the “chocolate masters” of our country, which have become the homemade hash consumption in authentic delicatessens . They are many and great wisdom of the post left by nicknames such as “Jeep” in Cannabis cafe where information and sample quality shine on their own. To find out more read here.
There are different names to call the result of water hash extraction: buble hash, hash-ice, ice wax solvent less, water hash, FMCD (full melt clear dome), hashish etc complete fusion.
Concentrate such as oils normally smoked in pyrex pipes. These pipes are authentic works of art made by blowers broscillate glass which is maximized concentrates. There are different models and forms from bublers, bongs , etc. oilers. and soon we’ll see a new article.
To thank all the people who have been slowly and are developing different techniques discussed in this article because without them would have been impossible to get here.
