  1. UGORG Disco Biscuit Flower Rosin

    From the album Various misc

  2. Thought i would document a little project we are doing.. It will be a 20t rosin press, hydraulic. It has taken us some time to think about sizes of plates , heat insulation and a few other ideas.. This is the last thread of the rosin journey that started last year here http://www.uk420.com/boards/index.php?showtopic=359903 . I hope this will work out ok ... The 20t press comes tomorrow. The plates are here and ready to go. The PID control and thermocouples/heaters are also on way... Quick peak of the plates they are 4 inch by 5 inch, might get a smaller set later on , see what happens with these first.. That it for now till next time take it easy
  3. Hey all so excited to be apart of this community. Im going to start this off as transparent as possible. I've been coughing blood (waiting on insurance rn to get checked, GO USA! -___- ) and as a result i've had to stop medicating as frequently. (dabbing .1 was my preferred method of consumption. Now i only use my Mighty Vaporizer) My chronic pain has intensified and life has become more difficult. I wanted to consume more cannabis than my body was allowing me to, so I decided to decarb some rosin and mix it with some ever-clear. It worked wonders on me, little to no pain although I had to double my dose by the end of the week though. With this successful experiment, Ive decided im going to switch over to ebibles, RSO to be exact. Ive been doing a ton of research on RSO and it seems that everyone has a opinion on the matter. So there's a few things im considering before making RSO. 1. decarbing in the oven before doing the alcohol wash or decarding during the evaporation process until only oil is left and all the bubbles subside. 3. decarbing temp 4. duration of how long i should do the wash? How many times i should do the wash? 5. winterization. Should i do it or not and whats your winterization process. Im not too concerned with plant matter getting in my final product. My only concern is making sure i get every bit of my medication. Regardless of how pure it is, ill just take more if needed. I dont want to loose THC to a coffee filter. 6. what solvent do you prefer and why? I used ever-clear to make rosin tincture but i recently purchased XFB 200 proof to use for RSO. Bit on the pricey side but i also purchased a distiller to make sure i get back some of my solvent. 7. Any tips and tricks on high yields? I typically get 20-23% yield off 24-26% THC flowers when i make Rosin. Im expecting the same if not more with RSO. Thanks in advance for contributing to this topic! I went out of my way to purchase everything i saw in the video i attached. I'm sure its not necessary but it was the best tutorial i came across and i want my setup to be as official as possible. I spent on total 220 dollars for all the material used in this video. VIDEO I USED TO LEARN HOW TO MAKE RSO:
  4. A thread about mechanical seperation/solventless extracts. Please feel free to add your own processes and experience to this thread. This first post will be a few pictures and some basic description with future posts detailing the process we use for our extracts. First up are some Tangie heads separated using screens then cleaned up using the static tech. This was with parchment wrapped around a DVD case and I've just started with the paint roller tech. I will detail the whole process from kief to heads in a future post. We have a Sasquash V2 rosin press which we've been playing with trying to find a way to make the process as productive as a butane extraction without a dip in quality..... it's difficult. After pressing a lot of flowers with varying results we are now pressing bubble hash and having greater success. For the bubble hash we use a camping washing machine with the 220u full mesh bag then filtered through a 5 bag set. 220, 150?, 90, 73 and 25. This is the 90 and 73 from the ChemD which was then pressed inside a 35u rosin bag at 165f. I'm really pleased with how this came out. As tasty as bho and bags of power. About 50% return. Here is a shot of some Jack Herer flower rosin which was pressed at 190f and returned 13.5% Next time we squish I'll do a full process with pictures.
  5. Thought I would show how to purge air or fill the pump with hydraulic fluid.. Sometimes you can loose pressure and not have any leaks with a new press or when it's moved..The way to fix it is quite easy..My new press came without enough fluid in the pump,so I filled it up and bled it the following way...Most of the press stuff I do will now be in here, lots of info in the sig from old threads... its also good to add ptfe plumbers tape to any thread on the hydraulics even if they look ok.. the hydraulic oil I use for top up is from machinemart The press used, most bleed the same way... The next pic shows the "dipstick" bolt , the bottom of the thread should have oil on it there is no level mark, just so the threads covered..Best to check when the pump is verticle..Undo the big black "dipstick" bolt .. then bellow is a sliver thumb bolt, this is for letting air out the system and also for filling up with fluid...IF no oil on "dipstick" undo the silver thumb bolt and slowly top up fluid..When the "dipstick" bolt has oil on the thread at bottom the level is correct.. The next pic shows bottom of pump , the release valve.. after you have done up dipstick bolt and silver thumb bolt for air up top open the release valve a good half turn...Then undo silver thumb bolt again, give the handle around ten full strokes, when handle verticle with pump screw shut the silver thumb screw first ,then do up release valve.... The press should now have correct level of fluid and no air in system and active and hold pressure ... How handle should be when shut all release and air release bolt... Thats it for now till next time take it easy....
  6. Hey people. I'v had this press set up for a while now so thought I'd share. The press was around £170, which is about as cheap as I could find a 10 ton. It came needing the hydraulic fluid topping up, hence the plates are mounted higher. The plates came from one of the many cheap chinese sites. I took a gamble as the package was around the same price as the press and came with an enail heating element and enail. The enail is far from the finest quality but is still reasonable. I'v been pressing at anywhere between 240f-300f, though one of my first presses must have been around 190f and produced the finest Rosin I'v ever seen. A few random shots... Random Bud Rosin. Lemon Haze Bud Rosin. Any questions feel free to ask, and it would also be interesting to see other peoples temp/time/pressure routines. Mouse out
  7. Hiya! Another question to throw out to you all. Has anyone tried any sort of rosin press not including hair straighteners? In a nutshell I don't and can't smoke (asthma = reduced lung capacity/low oxy/sats) so I need to either make edibles or make rosin. I am still on my 1st grow (wk 17) but obviously I have to look ahead and I don't really want to be sold a heap of crap costing way too much and as good as a Pork pie in a synagogue! Cheers again and thanks for any info. Respect.....As always Cmoon
  8. Hi, I just want to throw this one out to you all, first because I am new to growing my own (I am in week 17 of my first grow and although it was a mess at first due to trying to grow too many plants in a tiny tent all is now OK and flowering/budding nicely) secondly because I have angina with narrowing of the arteries and hence an abnormally fast heartbeat. My question is fairly simple:- Does all cannabis increase your heart rate i.e. Sativa, Indica, high CBD, high THC etc.? Use will be mainly for painkilling but I don't mind getting a bit of a high out of it too. I will be making tinctures at first and then rosin extraction when I can sort out a reasonably priced press. Any help on this will be much appreciated as I've had enough of the crap poisons my quack throws at me thinking it solves the problem......It just don't! Thanks to all Respect, as always, Cmoon

  12. I've been playing around with flower rosin again, experimenting with using filters and higher pressure this time and have finally managed to get my Blues flowers to press out at 20%! I wanted to post this for the people who say that Rosin is too low yield to be worth the trouble and also to prove that good old Ugorg Blues can keep up with all the US mega-hybrids which rarely exceed 20% yield! My largest single press so far has been 2g which yielded 0.4g of really light almost see-through Rosin pictured below (apologies for the poor quality photo, I didn't check it until after it was all collected!).
