CHILLAX – CHILLed Alcohol eXtraction method for making marijuana hash oil
read original tutorial by RadiantBlueLight here
Do you love marijuana hash oil? Interested in ultra-potent cannabinoid extractions?
I've been working on better ways to extract cannabinoids from cannabis for 15 years so here's CHILLAX (CHILLed Alcohol eXtraction). New name, same great taste.
Most cannabis extraction methods pull out too much green plant matter for good hash oil. Here's how to make the cleanest oil ever seen without using butane or expensive hexane.
Depending on the potency of the cannabis, you may extract 20-30% by weight of what you started with.
So for example, you’ll get about 4g from 0.5 oz of buds.
How to CHILLAX For Hash Oil
Chill a bottle of high % alcohol overnight in a freezer. 91% isopropyl is ideal.
Also chill a small drinking glass overnight. About the same size as a coffee filter.
The next day, put the cannabis in a coffee filter. Use two filters in case of rips.
Bake cannabis in a preheated oven at 250° F for 30 mins to decarboxylate. It will smell. If you're using your vape remains, you can skip this decarboxylation step.
Crumble up the cannabis while it's in the coffee filter. The buds are dry so it's easy.
Place the coffee filter containing cannabis open side up into the frozen glass.
Put the glass with cannabis in the freezer for an hour. It's still warm from the oven.
Pour enough chilled alcohol into the glass to just cover the cannabis.
Freeze the glass and its contents for 30-60 mins. Swirl the glass and check the color every 10 mins.
If the alcohol starts to turn light green, end now and go on to the next step.
Remove the glass from the freezer.
Carefully lift out the filter and let the remaining alcohol drip back into the glass.
Gently squeeze every last drop out the filter into the glass. Be careful, it's really cold and don't tear the filter.
The alcohol should be yellow with no green. Pour this alcohol into a bowl and let it evaporate with or without low electric heat.
Pictured here is 7 grams of California's finest dissolved in half a cup of alcohol. Ready to be evaporated. See how light colored the final product will be?
It will end up being very sticky but you can do a lot with it at this point. Such as scrape it up and smoke it like hash, roll a bud in it for cannabis caviar, or mix it with butter for edibles.
My favorite way is to mix it with a spoonful of peanut butter and eat it.
Anything you make with this oil will not have that nasty green taste but will smell and taste like the essence of cannabis without the stuff you don't want.
The coffee filter full of cannabis will be white when this is finished but later as the temperature rises it will become intensely green.
Here's a super cryo shortcut to freezer alcohol:
- Dry ice chunks are put into the room temperature alcohol already in the glass.
- Put the coffee filter in after the chunks have gone.
- You'll look like a real mad scientist with all the sublimated CO2 gas floating around.
