my method has been:

  • decarb concentrate @ 225f for 3-4 hours
  • take out use 3-6 drops of pyur thinner
  • use needle to mix for 5-10 min until it cools down
  • if consistency is ok after it cools down put it back in oven for 5 min or so to melt it
  • use syringe to get oil into cart
when i stir the concentrate with the needle after decarbing i get bubbles before the thinner, i also get bubbles when i stir in the pyur thinner. after about 5 min of stirring there are less bubbles but still noticeable so after i put it in the cart i will let it sit over night. in the morning most of the bubbles are gone.

my questions are,

am i getting bubbles because i need to decarb longer or is it normal to have some bubbles? im currently going for about 4 hours

will i melt the thc away or evaporate it if i leave the the concentrate in the oven too long?

how hot does it have to be before it starts melting/evaporating thc away?

i put the glass container in a brownie pan and after i take it out of the oven there is oil on the pan, is that thc being evaporated?

i just want to make sure i don't leave it in there too long or that im not wasting too much of the concentrate..

long post but any help is appreciated!

What is the source material? How was it concentrated - like Short Path or Eth extraction or a press?

I seen this thread and thought cool someone’s gonna post a recipe- nope! Lol
I should have known @Moe.Red has all the info! Lol since I started growin I hate to smoke or eat anything I didn’t grow ! Lol

if ya have a good process I’d love to read it. I’m not a full on organic is believer but. Try and keep it simple and natural extract as I can I prefer to press my flower into concentrate - I’m also learning to love dry sift.

So you are looking for a recipe for putting pressed rosin in a cart? Do you have the cart hardware already?

Biggest problem is the amount of waxes when pressing tends to not flow so you gotta thin it out. Also some carts don’t do a good job of decarb so the whole process is important

Sounds like she is buying .5 to 1ml extract made with whatever process and loaded into tiny syringes, running a decarb cycle and then thinning it out to the consistency she needs.

I do have everything except the knowledge to even start - decarb I’ve experimented with so I got an idea - but the thinning agent? And consistency needed well that’s another story if I just had a trustworthy place to start. I’m sure experience is the key

I understand but that’s a pretty generic process I’m looking for names and numbers temps times etc.
sorry op for high jacking your thread

Not on my pc or I could give you a link but there are many companies that sell thinners. I use True Terpenes. If you have everything else ready dropping thinner over the wax and stirring is the easy part.

I’ve recently started doing this. Doesn’t the THCA decarb when the mixture is vaporized? I just press a gram of flower rosin and add 2ml of Wax liquidizer. So far the SPRK carts are shit. The THC CCell carts seem to work better. But that’s about as far as I’ve gotten.

Sprk are one of the ones that do not fully decarb. But they are really nice. We use them. What don’t you like? I’ll check out the one you mentioned

Short path will be decarboxylated already.

-Eskander
Agreed.

OP has something else going on. 4 hours of decarb after short path is not necessary. Actually destructive. I don't really know what to say here.

Having oil in the brownie pan makes no sense either. There should be no oil in SP concentrate.

@leannaepulido are you in control of the extraction or are you buying it as is? Maybe some pics of the process to help you figure this out? Something doesn't add up.

Please please please do NOT use true terpenes anything. They sold US (cart makers) MINERAL OIL as a dilutent for carts. I/we have proof. I paid out of my pocket got a lab test. Its NOT terpenes!!!

Floraplex has a much better terpenes available.

No need for a dilutent or thinner. Rosin is tricky to put in a cart, as the could will burn out due to the lipids and waxes still in the rosin.

I also make thousands of carts monthly.

How long ago was that? Which product did you use?


That is mineral oil?
