making hash oil with alcohol

The active ingredients in marijuana dissolve readily in alcohol. You can find rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) at any drug store. It is cheap — usually about a dollar per bottle.
Pour the liquid through a coffee filter into another jar. This will remove the plant fiber and give you a green alcohol mixture that contains alcohol and the active ingredients from the marijuana.
BE SURE YOU DO NOT GET DENATURED ALCOHOL. Denatured alcohol contains ingredients that can be POISON. “Denaturing” is a process where they add ingredients to make the alcohol unsuitable for human consumption. If you use “denatured” alcohol, you will wind up with hashish that is unsafe to consume, and it will probably taste terrible, too.
If you put this hash oil in a pipe, it will bubble and cook like road tar. Because of this, getting a good high from it may be difficult with conventional smoking methods. It is not that you can’t get high — you can — it will just be more work than smoking a joint and you may wind up with a clogged pipe. Think of how difficult it is to work with road tar and you will get some idea of what it is like.
If you cannot find alcohol in your drug store, you can also use any high-alcohol content rum or vodka, such as Everclear. If you are going to use rum or vodka you should note that the alcoholic beverage may contain additional ingredients that may modify the flavor of the resulting hashish, or make it harsher to smoke. Plain alcohol is to be preferred, and plain alcohol is cheaper.
Put the marijuana in a jar that can be sealed tightly and pour the alcohol over it. Put enough alcohol in so there is enough to cover the marijuana completely, and then some. Let it sit for about 24 hours. By the end of 24 hours, the alcohol will have turned distinctly green. (If you have real bunk, the alcohol may turn brown.)
Some other methods recommend heating the mixture on the stove to evaporate off the alcohol. This can be dangerous , as described above. It is far better to just be patient and let the alcohol evaporate naturally. It takes a little longer, but it is far safer and a lot less work.
Please be extremely careful when you are handling alcohol. Do not smoke or get near open flame while you are doing this process. Alcohol can be extremely flammable, and it burns with a flame that is often hard to see until it is too late. Some methods elsewhere recommend evaporating the alcohol off by heating the mixture on a stove. I would NOT recommend that. For one thing, the alcohol vapor can be extremely flammable and, because the flames are hard to see, you can have a big problem (like the whole house burning down) before you know it. For another, the alcohol vapor can get you very seriously drunk in a hurry. Seriously. You can a couple of good whiffs and be staggering.

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.
Pour enough chilled alcohol into the glass to just cover the cannabis.
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.
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.
Place the coffee filter containing cannabis open side up into the frozen glass.
The alcohol should be yellow with no green. Pour this alcohol into a bowl and let it evaporate with or without low electric heat.
Freeze the glass and its contents for 30-60 mins. Swirl the glass and check the color every 10 mins.
Here’s a super cryo shortcut to freezer alcohol:
Carefully lift out the filter and let the remaining alcohol drip back into the glass.
