Once filtering is over, you will be left with a jar containing a clear liquid with a green tint. You might ask, where the hell is my concentrate then? It is dissolved into that alcohol, we need to remove the alcohol now.

You may also want to prepare your larger jar to save time later: take 1 coffee filter and put it onto your jar making sort of a bag (note: I used some thread to make sure the filter doesn’t fall into the jar), or, if you are making lots of extraction, cover entire surface of your larger sieve with filters and place smaller sieve on top of it.
Making extracts isn’t as difficult as you may think, just requires some patience. There are several different methods for making high-quality extracts (other popular being BHO, but it is way more dangerous and complex due to usage of highly flammable butane, so I will stick to QWISO method).

Firstly grind up all your buds into the small jar (ground buds have larger surface area, so it is easier to extract all the goods from them that way). Then put that jar and your alcohol into a freezer for a few hours or just overnight to make sure they’re as cold as possible (don’t worry, isopropyl freezes only at -89 C). Freezing is necessary, since trichromes fall off the leaves of the bud way more easily at low temperatures, making the extraction significantly more successful. Extracting without freezing results in smaller amounts of the final product.
First of all, what is a QWISO (Quick-Wash ISOpropyl) extract? Cannabis buds consist of two main parts – plant material and, what I like to call, “effective material”, which gives all the desired effects from consuming it. In other words, plant material is more or less useless. An extract (also called concentrate, shatter, wax, oil, budder) basically contains only the desired “effective material”, and is intended for many uses, but mainly for vaporizing.
If you have finished growing, drying and curing, it is time to consume it. There are many ways to consume marijuana, one of them being vaporizing.
First of all, make sure all containers (both jars and a plate) are really clean and totally dry (you want them totally clean, since the unwanted material might get into the extract, causing you problems later trying to remove it, and you want them dry, since water evaporation takes way longer than alcohol).
Pour jar’s contents into the plate or any other flat-surfaced container you have chosen. Pour a little extra alcohol into the jar to again make sure you don’t leave any trichromes in it. If you have a fan, then set it to blow into the liquid at lowest setting. Important notice: make sure you leave the evaporating alcohol in a garage/basement/a ventilated area, since you will be evaporating all the alcohol you used, which is flammable and slightly toxic. The evaporation might take between 12 and 24 hours.

Once the evaporation is complete (there are not even the slightest traces of any liquid on the plate), grab your razor blade and a chosen container for storing the concentrate and gather up from the surface. I used a toothpick to remove gathered material from blade into a container.

If you have finished growing, drying and curing, it is time to consume it. There are many ways to consume marijuana, one of them being vaporizing.

Any type of plant material can be used, flowers and shade leafs are better than stems, but stems work very nicely. Most grow operations just throw them out.

filter ethanol from solid material with large pore filter
place material in round bottom flask with condenser.

Also, when using everclear, which is not the same as isopropyl at all, you end up with a product made with a food grade solvent, istead of one not labelled to internal uses.
Just dying to make first post here.
the product is pretty potent and i will definitely do this again in the future
The product is much more oily than solid, and is best smoked solo in an oil bulb, but it is dyno-mite for sure!
I let the trim dry on a piece of window screen until it’s getting crispy
I fill a large mason jar 1/2 way up with dry trim and add 1 bottle of 99% ISO. It should just cover the leaves.
Shake vigorously for 30 seconds .
Strain the liquid through a funnel lined with silk screen into a glass cake pan.
Aim a fan across the pan to help it evaporate.
When everything is dry scrape it into a pile and it should look like this.

. seriously, is llama using a quart mason jar?
