Extraction & cartridges
Yesterday we finally got together our small batch of grape 🍇 ape 🦧 cartridges. Let’s go through the process..... 👇
(after packing the 12 inch tube with 60 grams of Devine breathe) we blasted it with 2 cans of pure322 organic solvent by Meta Vega into our Pyrex dish. After allowing the rest of the solvent to drain out of the tube we got the dish into a warm water bath
Once the bulk of the pure322 had been purged (find this awesome sauce solvent at www.pure322.com and use “waxroom10” for a discount.)
And at this point we don’t have a way to see what the weight of the contents are in the dish but a pretty good guesstimate would be 15 grams as that’s what we average when using this material, which has been consistent for nearly 3 years. We flood the dish with grain alcohol and enough to just cover the extraction. Once dissolved we collect it into a mason jar.
Once collected and sealed, this goes into the freezer. The freezer is where the solution will seperate. Alcohol doesn’t freeze, the fats and lipids do creating solids that we can then filter out later. Minimum of 12 hours is needed for this to occur with our tech and process. Longer the better in the freezer. At this point we prep our Buckner funnel with two simple coffee filters.
Attaching our Buckner funnel to our vac pump it takes about one minute to filter this small run, actually less. More time setting up then Anything. Once filtered 👆 you can see a much clearer liquid.
👆 as you can see that fats and lipids... you don’t want this shit in your carts. A few problem will occur if this step is overlooked. One, you will clog your carts almost immediately and 2, you will get a burnt taste.
after filtering we poured the alcohol solution into a food safe silicone and placed it on a heating mat to purge off the bulk of the alcohol. YES this is a very primitive way of doing this step 🤷♂️ I dont have the money for the basic proper equipment for this step so I have struggled and made something work. Once the bulk of the alcohol has been purged, Honeycomb kept an eye on it and once it was thick she took it off the heating pad. At that point we are ready for the vac chamber.
The vac chamber can purge the remainder of the alcohol within 2-3 hours with the amount we have. Staying at the chamber and playing with pressures and heat to properly purge the rest of the alcohol out.
👇 the final weight of the winterized Devine breathe came out to exactly 12 grams of extract. We used all of it and made this next batch of grape ape carts stronger then usual
Adding this and the flavoring to our mixing glass and gently heating the content we mix. Allowing the contents to cool after mixing we opened the new 100 count box of full glass carts.
We got our gloves on and we do fill by hand still (we have a vape filling machine but will not be able to use it until we are filling at least 200+ carts at a time.)
We filled 27 of the new full glass carts
January 6th we are full bavk and will be going at it harder then Ever. Bare with me and we will be getting back to the film grow and extraction updates Monday, Wednesday and Friday’s. we appreciate all the support 🎉 💯 💚
