Without lab grade equipment and multiple (terpene destroying) washes, iso is inherently unhealthy. Home extractions of iso should be the last option of the desperate and only for a one time thing.
Ethanol is the go to for clean and healthy, home kitchen extractions.

It's pretty easy to get down that low or lower with proper technique.
Your body can handle small amounts of isopropyl alcohol. In fact, your kidneys remove approximately 20 to 50 percent of IPA from your body. The rest is broken down into acetone by enzymes known as alcohol dehydrogenases. This acetone is filtered out of your body through the lungs or kidneys.
However, when you ingest more IPA than your body can manage (which occurs around 200 mL for an adult), poisoning can occur.
manufacturers add chemicals to make rubbing alcohol extremely bitter and undrinkable. These additives include sucrose octaacetate and denatonium benzoate. Neither chemical is toxic; indeed, small quantities of denatonium benzoate can be put on a child’s thumb to prevent her from sucking it.
Sucrose octaacetate is an acetylated derivative of sucrose. It is used commercially and industrially in a variety of applications. It is used as an inert ingredient in pesticides and herbicides. As of December 2005 sucrose octaacetate was determined by the EPA to be completely nonharmful as an ingredient in pesticides.
Sucrose octaacetate has been approved by the FDA as a food additive. It has a bitter taste which has led to its use as bitterant and an aversive agent. The chemical has also been used to determine tasters from non-tasters in mice..
Denatonium benzoate is one of the most bitter substances known. Just a few parts per million will make a product so bitter that children and pets will not be able to swallow it. Denatonium benzoate makes sweet but highly toxic products such as antifreeze and detergents taste foul. Research shows that people can detect denatonium benzoate in water at 50 parts per billion. Denatonium benzoate is bitter at 1 to 10 ppm and most products will become undrinkable at 30 to 100 ppm. Denatonium benzoate is also stable and inert. In addition, so little is needed that the properties of the product remain unchanged.
Both the National Safety Council and the American Medical Association recommend adding denatonium benzoate to products that are defined as mild to moderately toxic. Some countries, such as France, have made denatonium benzoate mandatory in antifreeze. Others such as Italy have made denatonium benzoate the number one denaturant for ethanol. The State of Oregon has required that it be added to antifreeze and windshield wiper fluid since 1995. We offer denatonium benzoate in powder form, both technical and pharmaceutical grade, and in a granular form (technical grade only). Your best source for denatonium benzoate is Aversion Technologies, the world’s only company dedicated to the supply of products to protect people, plants and pets.

I use little to no heat and mine turns to a wax consistancy after a few days under a fan blowing up helping evaporate, makes for super terpy low temp dabs. I also freeze the stuff Im extracting when its not quite fully dry just as the stems start to snap, it seems to help extract only the stuff I want.Gotta make sure it's purged lol.
I purge it on low for a long time and if I take it off the heat and remains gooey I put it back on.
I'll turn the water in the water bath to boiling this time and the oil thins down and allows the final bubbles to pop. The thin film low temp gets most of it. But the 5 mins over boiling water seems to finish it off turning it to shatter.
If it's not shatter when cooled down it needs to be purged longer or temp needs to rise.
I believe you meant "truths you'd rather ignore." Right?"alternative facts"! Haha
Yes, proposed due to it only being used perhaps a few times in the history of a patient. Doctors routinely prescribe drugs and treatments which harm the patient in various ways, they deem the good to outweigh the damage. Again, for short treatment periods.Isopropyl Alcohol Inhalation: Alternative Treatment of Postoperative Nausea and Vomiting
Do you own a liquor store?Yes, proposed due to it only being used perhaps a few times in the history of a patient. Doctors routinely prescribe drugs and treatments which harm the patient in various ways, they deem the good to outweigh the damage. Again, for short treatment periods.
When it becomes a case where the treatment will be frequent or for extended periods of time, doctors try to look for less damaging methods of treating their patients. Daily dabber or medicinal user? Skip the iso, go for ethanol. Zero risk of long term use causing harm.
found this:I apologize if I missed it, but what are best practices for ethanol extraction?
And as to purging isopropanol, how does one know when enough is enough?
