    Hello, I'm trying to make thc liquid for e-cig but without any success. I'm using Rick Simpson oil and PG/VG 50:50 but when i try to dissolve the oil in pg/vg it sits like oil in water and no matter what i do (heat cold) it can't be dissolved. I've just tried only with PG or VG and effect is the same... Did someone have a same problem like me? I will appreciate any help. Thank you.

  2. From what I have read about it, oil just will not do very well in a vape pen. About 80% vg works best from my reading but still leaves a lot to be desired. The article pointed out that vape pens with thc bought in legal states... no way to know what is actually in there, unless you have it tested with a mass spectrometer. Lol. Yeah, I looked into that too, decided it wasn't worth pursuing. Just my take on it. :cool:

    Do not use VG at all. It won’t meld with the concentrate. I am currently using rosin and pure PG. Just heat the PG to about 140-160 degrees F in a double boiler (pan of water with a shot glass in it works too) and let the concentrate melt for a few minutes. Then stir it until it’s uniform and then inject into your carts. I use CCELL brand carts (not knock offs those tend to leak) and have had great results. I use a 1:1 ratio for the best results. This means 1ml of PG to 1 gram of concentrate. If the concentrate does not melt then something is wrong with the concentrate. I have a rosin press that uses pressure and heat to extract the resin and it works great for eliquid suspension.

  4. Wax liquidizer is what a head shop will sell. Sds sheets say pg 100, pg 200, pg 300.
    Same process. Just buy the pg 3 way mix from Texas labs or something like that.
    I bought the flavors from nicvape, they throw ya an extra for buying 5

    I use a product called Herbal Suspension. Works for BHO will def work for RSO. Just don’t want to make too much at one time because the oil will settle out and or the fluid will evaporate if not used in a timely fashion.
    It usually takes a day for the oil to evaporate to a nice consistency. Left covered it should last about a week if you make too much.
     
  7. The article I read must of suggested pg, not vg, just didn't remember right. But, they mentioned that it still separates even after its blended when warm, and that there was still issues. Could of been an older article too. As I'm retired, live alone, and rarely travel, I really have no reason to pursue it. I also have a heat press, I been pressing at 120 and 100 micron but have 75 on order. You get almost as much oil, as using say a 220 vs. 100 microns if you prepare it well. I use a dab rig, have a reclaimer on there. And, if I do go somewhere, I have a Yocan torch. Hope you get the OP going and glad you have luck with the vape pen. :cool:

    PEG 400 can be used as well. I have some coming to try out but have read that ejmix is just a blend of PG and PEG400 and works well. That is what I’m going to try and replicate to see if it’s any better than pure PG like I’ve been using. I’m not anticipating much but will give it a try and will report my results.

  9. I use the double-boiler method and only had problems with vg. I use food grade pg 400 (1:1 for leisure and 2:1 general use). I have found the key element to be keeping the heat of the mixture as close to 180 as i can get without going over, for 3 minutes. I also use a 10 mil or larger syringe to ensure complete mixing and contact by sucking it up every 10 or 15 seconds during the 3 minutes. If turps are big concern this is probably not for you. I am in a situation where i need to avoid the smells associated with my indulgence. Good Luck

  10. I am guessing the consistent temperature and time, are the main keys to your success. I think I'd try your same process if I ever pursue that. Thanks.

    It really does not take long to melt the concentrate (rosin in my case) into the PG. Just a couple of minutes. I keep the temp between 150-160 in the double boiler. The shot glass actually stays just a tad cooler and I make my batches in 1-2ml increments as I have .5ml carts that I fill with it. Just be sure to use enough concentrate as it can be a tad harsh with too much PG.
     
  12. If it is too harsh, then a couple of drops of vg will help take it down a notch or two (directly into the cart. will do just fine). We usually start with a 7g sheet and add drop it directly into the shot glass along with 14mil of pg. Stir with the syringe tip as it heats up (you will notice the lump start to go away). Be careful not to let the water get to a rolling boil; water will splash into your shot glass and really piss you off, not to mention screw up about 20mil of ready to use oil.

    Yeah gotta be careful with the water. I have had some close calls but have never had it splash into the shot glass. I did try VG but it separated. Even at a 10% ratio it separated. Thats why i'm curious to see what a mix of PG and PEG 400 does. I'm looking to see if it takes a little harshness out of a lower concentration mixture or if its the same. If it is better then i'll most likely start using it, but PG with a 1:1 ratio seems to be the best (I've had so far) and does not have any harshness that I can tell. But i'll give it a go and see what happens and report back. The PEG 400 arrives tomorrow so we'll see :)
