Default Quit burning the grass?

So with the advent of vapes and so many butane extractions it seems like the burning of grass is just gonna get less for me....but I have a question..

What is the OIL in hash oil? Is it petroleum? Olive? I just don't have the scientific mind for the process I tried to read up on it but I just don't get it....The point of the question is if I am vaping a hash oil pen...what is that oil made of? Is it just basically concentrated plant material?

Spent the weekend with a crazy raw food organic eater / herb vaper and when I told him about dabbing and oil pens and whatnot he was super concerned about harmful byproducts vs vaping weed.

I'm pretty siked to goto a butter oil rig (water bubbler) for at home and some portable vapes.

Just picked up a Pax. And while it seems to do a good job for a portable grass vaper, it seems you can just get way way more bang for your buck vaping earwax or hash oil out of one of those pens.....

I think its mostly straight THC and some lesser known cannaboids(think CBD is another one) with all the extra plant matter taken out. I'd guess there would be a lot less tar smoking oil because most of it is probably from the plant matter itself.

Not sure what that pax thing is, but if your looking for another good portible vape I hear the magicflightlaunchbox is one of the best. Ive never used one but they sure do look cool!

Oh haha, seemed to have good reviews but I could see them not being the greatest. I guess you were looking for one for oil not herb anyways.

Enjoy zee hash!

I was just watching a vid on youtube of how hash oil is made.

It's basically leftover plant material (no stems or seeds) distilled in high proof/food grade alcohol (190 proof everclear or even bacardi 151 rum will do, but nothing lower). The plant material is then filtered out and the resulting liquid is boiled until all the alcohol is gone. The final product is super concentrated natural oil from the plant + the drug(s) and nothing else.

from what I gather, the only difference between this and, lets say, olive oil is the extraction method (in this case, chemical as opposed to mechanical)...and, of course, cannabis oil will get you high as a mofo

haha I used that exact box like a week ago it does pretty much suck but it will do in a pinch.

As for the byproducts of vaping well there is no "tar" which is basically the leftover raw combustion from burning carbon-based life forms... It's always been my understanding that the THC oil is basically what you "smoke" when you're blazing anyways. I'd not be at all worried about whatever else might be in the mix of vapors. It's still 95% less shitty for you than smoke.

The oil is the actual THC stripped off of the plant. So basically, the crystals get extracted from the plant without getting activated. This is mostly done by using Butane or Co2, though the second method is not as common...yet. The reason for using the butane is that butane gasses off at an incredibly low temperature.

So the process goes like this, get a bunch of green, shove it in a glass tube, cover the large opening with a fine mesh screen, then blow the butane through said tube. Now, the butane is instantly freezing the THC, pulling it off the plant, and depositing it into whatever you have for a catching unit. Pyrex glass works great for catching. Then, once you blow your butane through the tube, you are left with a liquid in your pyrex. Then you put the whole thing in a bath of near boiling water. This causes the majority of the butane to gas off and leaves you with the straight THC oil left behind. At this point, there are several things you can do, but the preferred method is to set the pyrex dish on a griddle set at 150 degrees. Then let it cook for a few minutes, scrape the oil into a pile in the center, whisk it a few times, let sit, rinse and repeat until you get the desired consitency. This also gasses off any butane that may have been left after the bath. Finally, as an additional step, some people choose to vaccuum purge the oil. This is how you get "shatter". Oil is getting huge here in WA, and I suspect CO to be on a similar path.
