Look at you grow Making RSO already! I am very impressed indeed.
I’m a bit lazier though and like things a lot more automated. I use magical butter machine and run two cycles on that for it to infused into pure isopropyl alcohol “not the cheap nasty chemical filled poison” Gallon and a half cost about for me $90. 99.9%.
If people want to remove the green or nasty taste as in helps the remove it a bit can place into clear glass bottle with the top on and place outside for a few hours and the sun will react with it and it will no longer be green. Got a few methods out there but that usually the one I use.
Next for me is a distiller to recover at least 80%-90% of the alcohol. “since i make large batches for cancer patients and recreational purposes.” Pays itself off in the first two runs. Pouring it out of the distiller onto a small stone blasted pot. “stoneware heat up slower and retains a lot of heat.” I do use a hotplate and fan on very low setting just enough so it lightly simmers and the alcohol can evaporate or what left.
At which point when it really thickening up and the flow is like syrup i add in a few drops of water. "the alcohol has a lower boiling point than water does and you want all of the alcohol out of the RSO. This is really important to keep an eye on it as it the real turning point in making that RSO or ruining it. “by overheating the RSO.”
With 99.9% alcohol has a safer method that does exist without the need to use heat. “Decarb the herb though since no heat is used.” Low container or cooking tray so it has some surface area not too big. Fan next to it running over it and this is evaporate the alcohol in a day or overnight into RSO. In which case the container or tray has to be heated up to work with since it is basically the consistency of grease when at room temperature so has to be heated up to a liquid state to move into syringes/pills or where you want to store it.

I have left out about 2/3 of the details that required to make it perfectly intentionally. Mainly because people that already know how to make RSO can fill in the blanks in their head and appreciate the slight differences in method I took. Anyone looking to make RSO please do many days of research before attempting to do so.
But yes you don’t need magical butter machine, you don’t need a distiller, you don’t even need to use 99.9% alcohol. I do so because i want maximum return.
@AnneBonny you doing good. I need to catch up on some reading on what the other folks be doing and I may actually make an in-depth guide on a few things but you seem to have things worked out pretty well for yourself though!
Demand for quality RSO is always high for it medical benefits and the only strains people should be using is heavy indica with high THC. I don’t think it can be called RSO if people don’t follow his methods in producing RSO and Rick Simpson have said it from the start indica is best for fighting cancer as it allows the body to rest and THC for fighting the cancer. 60 grams for a full cycle of this is needed for a full treatment and up to 180 grams in some cases where radiation and chemo is used or in severe situations. It is not cheap
Takes about half a pound of high quality flower to make an ounce of RSO. A pound of flower in essence should get you at least 60 grams or close to that maybe over if it really good quality. In cases when a patient may need 180 grams for a full treatment that process of making it and time plus cost of 3 pounds of flower can be high. But if it has the chance to possibly cure a loved one from cancer and in most cases give a bit more time and make things easier. I don’t think that can be measured in dollars.
Knowledge on how to grow and making the RSO yourself is the most surefire way and most economical.
