@gabba, that's crazy expensive, I get 97% from the pharmacy at R70 for 500ml.

That's why people like to use stills to make oils that way you get most of your solvent back at it does cost a small fortune.

And what's the other 3%... more than likely water. Water is a solvent in its self but you do t want to much in there. oils are used to treat sick people and you have to get the very best solvents . Get a well known brand and know what's in it

Thats why i am wanting only 99% and thats why its R5000 for 10 Litres, its the purest you can get, i am just trying to find out if i can get it cheaper. Im using this to treat people and myself so it needs to be of the highest quality

That's the right way to do it bud , you won't find it much cheaper any were else. With 10l you can make a lot of oil , if you going to be doing it often look at getting a still . That way you can reuse the solvent a few times

They guys overseas have adopted a great little desk top distiller that works really well. You can find them on ebay. With this still you can produce your own high quality solvent as well

No I moved away from chemical solvents a while ago. I have had just as good a result from using water as my solvent as I had from RSO. A friend of mine has one and swears by it

Can get ethanol from a chemical supplier, about R550 for 25lts.

I wouldnt make medicine with it though, and would only use it to purge the butane from a BHO extract. Have to make sure to burn it all off.

Iso/Eth/everclear are polar/non-polar solvents so you are extracting chlorophyll and other compounds as well as the THC/CBD compounds. Hence it looking black.

RSO can be made with water, or coconut oil mixed with a high concentrated extract (bubble hash).. one in the same.
