Lemon Haze x Purple Kush BHO – Homemade (DleafSmoke)

2

Dleafsmoke experimented with using pure N butane with this batch of wax.  It may not have been as good of an idea as he and his friend had initially hoped… the flavor on this definitely sounds nasty.  –Tokeahontas

Very medicating but nothing I would dab again. I would use this for edibles or capsules as the effects were decent.
Type:
Concentrate - Wax. Made using pure N butane, not as good of an idea as we had hoped
Price G:
A friend of mine wanting to experiment with using pure N butane, I went over to help out. Extractions are always easier with help.
Looks:

Very dark greenish yellow oil.  Was extremely sticky, dabbers up.  The oil, when spread thin, is translucent.  But when collected it has a wet grainy look to it.  My friend and I took a dab each and there was no sizzle or sparking and the smoke was a thick white.

I wasn’t expecting much from this extract; after it started to turn greenish in the water purging portion I kinda gave up on it.  A very large yield, ran 24 grams and got back 5.8 grams, but I know that the butane extracted more than usual so the extra weight may not be such a good thing.

Smell:

The physical oil had absolutely no smell. Even when brought right up to your nose the slab had 0 smell.  When stringing off a dab, a sickly sweet smell was on the end of the dabber.  It wasn’t very enticing.  The slight bit of vapor that escaped the HMK pad had a burnt hashy smell like testing bubble hash.

Taste:

Well this is really where this experiment went to hell.  Using full nugs I expect a somewhat decent final product.  That is not the case here. The taste was a pungent foul sour that sat in your mouth for about 20 minutes even after some Doritos and iced tea.

My friend takes larger dabs than I do and continued the trend here, which led to him unfortunately throwing up.  The sour taste reminded me of milk that had gone bad.  There was something just truly wrong with it.  The nugs were beautiful and used in another BHO run that tasted amazing so I know it wasn’t the material.

Buzz Type:

The buzz was very heavy on this oil.  My eyes were almost immediately lowered and I felt fairly lazy.  Sitting around it took almost 30 minutes to find something to watch for really no good reason.  About an hour in I had a 15 minute daze out period that I couldn’t really focus on the movie anymore and was just spacing out.

The effects started to wear off almost 2 hours in. At this point we switched over to some shatter that was made and tried to figure out what to do with 5.7 grams of nasty.

Buzz Length:

The length of the buzz was surprisingly long for 2 people with good tolerances but that may be all the different cannabinoids that were extracted.  It was a very lazy dumb stone that I don’t personally enjoy. Paired with the flavor I wouldn’t dab my worst enemy this junk.

After some real dabs we decided it would be best to make a glycerin tincture and capsule all of it.  He has several patients that require pill form cannabis and ended up selling these at cost.

Overall:

I will never be trying pure N butane extractions ever again. It was a complete waste of some beautiful nugs and the taste was just ridiculous.  The quantity of product obtained may make this extraction method useful for people looking to make capsules in bulk. I would otherwise never suggest this to anyone, I would not use the oil to make any edibles for the fear that ANY of the taste could come through.

After this experience my friend got a large empty canister that holds about 10 cans worth of butane. He uses his own mix 70%pure N butane/25%pure propane/5% 99% Iso. It is a perfect mix that always creates crystal clear shatter product that doesn’t butter up even after a week and some pocket agitation.  –DleafSmoke

    damn sounds bad. i would expect better from n tane, if thematerial was good then it had to be the tane or something else. good review. andive had some qwiso shatter not budder up for well over a week. i thinks it has something to do with the moisture in the buds or something

    how long did you let the butane soak the material???? did you weigh the butane before purge and after purge to make sure it equaled the same amount???// i think u guys did something terribly wrong here lol

    You guys are crazy n-tane is the shit! looks to me like you had too much pressure. Also, a lot of people like to use a mixture of n-tane and n-propane as it pulls a nicer range of terps.
