  1. Watsup guys. So yesterday was the day. We went to the Cannabis expo!!!!!!! It was lots of fun. We saw so many people from different walks of life all in the same place with a passion for the herb. There was cannabis being smoked at an outside venue and also a VIP lounge which there was a guy serving dabs. He had a small selection but it was free an man did that lift a person up. A great observation was even though here were sooooo many people there was not an ounce of shit. I understand that it is not a huge expo but this is still just the beginning phase. As soon as there is clearer legislation and laws set in place, we should see alot more people coming out the woodwork. So it is understandable that there were no seeds or cannabis being sold. I do understand that the expo is more on the bussiness side of the herb. None the less it was an absolute fantastic day. Myself and @John Stonedwell just had to leave our marks.
  2. What is up oaks. This weekend is going to be awesome. It is the Cannabis expo in JHB at the sandton Convention centre. I for one am suuuuuper excited and will be there with family and a bunch of friends. Tickets are R150 online and R200 at the gates. Anyone from the forum going to just have a look and are there any suppliers also going to be there? It will be my first cannabis expo and am super excited. Any tips or cool advise for the expo is welcome.
  3. Very cool. Looks like a pshycadelic party going on in there.
  4. Welcome dude. This forum is fantastic for learning and there are plenty of people with tons of knowledge here. Checking your post on reddit and doesn't seem to sound like someone I know on this forum. Everyone here is very welcoming. Let us know what you are growing, indoor, outdoor, autos, fems, soil, coco, hydro etc etc etc. We love seeing new setups and ideas. Enjoy
  5. Wow!!!! These plants recovered so well and look really amazing. 😲 Good job dude. 👏👏👏
  6. I recieved my order on Monday morning at 9:20!!!!! Over a long weekend this is very impressive. I must give credit to TheCourierGuy as they play a big role too. None the less. Great service from @TheGroBro Very happy thanks
  7. Great grow. 👍👍👍love the pheno. first donkey dong photo I've liked.
  8. I just ordered from them aswell. Their price was also the best I could find on that specific item. Ordered last night, shipped today.
  9. One thing which is noticable, when you "crack" the plants properly, a few weeks later you actually see the branches thickening between the nodes. Love it
  10. Hey dude. Looks like a good option. Not too expensive at all. So I usually use Kingbrite as a supplier (you can search for them under suppliers) and haven't had any shit with delivery. Check them on alibaba and look through their product categories. You'll find bars and boards. They are also verified and have been active for years on Alibaba. Just remember to work out your costs properly. I see the delivery is estimated at $40 and your import might be about 20% which is roughly $20 - $30. The customs you will only pay before they release it. Mine was so quick last time. I paid while it was passing through the UAE, and when it landed in SA it was cleared immediately. I am not 100% sure but if you pay the customs within 48 hours they release it quickly, but if you take abit longer it falls onto a pile which could take weeks. Good luck dude. Let us know what you get.
  11. I absolutely love this video. One of the first videos a friend showed me when I grew my very first proper outdoor plant. A gem and atleast top 5 video any grower should watch. I love the feeling of doing the chiro on the plants, feels quite satisfying. The cracking scares people usually 🤣😂
  12. Howzit oaks. Just a short one again of a few little vacuum chambers I have made. There are bigger vacuums that you can make using perspex and pots but that I have not done yet. One day maybe. So this guide would just be for a little chamber and a hand pump. An extreme budget job. For the noob like myself. So a list of things: Jar and lid (preferrably small as possible (200ml)). WondaFix (pratley). 1/4 inch ball valve. Some 1/4 inch fittings and nozzles. Plumbing tape. Hand brake bleeder pump (tube included) So I also have one that uses an 1/8 inch valve which is awesome but fittings are quite tough to get hold of so just for the ease of it, we will refer to 1/4 inch in this quick guide. I managed to find all my fittings at a shop called Adendorff. What a shop. Lots of cheap tools and crap. I asked them if they do vacuum pumps and sounds like they have a huge request and might bring something in. Quite simple. Drill a hole into the lids of the jars. I used a 6mm drill bit. The 1/4 inch fitting fits nicely into it. I actually just screwed it into the hole using the thread on the fittings. Depending on your valve being a male to male or female to female, you will have to figure out the best fittings/adaptors for the job. I used female valves so I basically only needed a 1/4inch male to male adaptor and a 1/4inch male nozzle. Once screwed in I used the wondafix to seal it nicely. I used the steel pratley but doesn't work because the lid of the chamber flexes a little when you suck all the air out. Let the glue settle overnight and then make sure everything is screwed in tightly. You will notice in both photos that I am using different jars and lids but they are still small enough. The reason for the small jars is because you have to remove the air using a hand pump. It takes suuuuuuuuper long if you use a 1lt consol jar and pump it with a hand pump. Smaller jars are much easier. I am on the look out for second hand fridge compressors because the old school ones have an inlet and outlet. As far as I know you can get a really nice vacuum going with one of those. With the hand pump and small jar I can get about 24"hg. With a compressor pump/vacuum pump you can get very very close to a perfect vacuum (29.92"hg). Last two photos is from vacuum to no vacuum. When warming the extract with a mat or warm bath it helps get all the bubbles of gas out easier. The extract can also be directly blasted into the glass jar, then purged from the jar too, and utilized from the jar for consumption. Total estimated costs: M/M adaptor 1/4inch (R20) F/F ball valve 1/4inch (R40) M nozzle 1/4inch (20) Brake bleeder pump kit (R250) Small jar and lid (R25) Plumbing tape (R20) Pratley WondaFix (R80) TOTAL: R455 Hope this manages to help someone else that is also using chemical extraction methods and wants cleaner dabs. Thanks for watching.
  13. @Prom Thank you kindly sir for the awesome info. I did buy myself some coffee filters and have tried one before. I stopped because I kept reading that they must be "unbleached" but I guess it is just for the purests. Will do a run through one again. I like the silicon bowl. Works very nice. I have several different kinds of silicone things that I try with. I struggle though because I want to get it into the vacuum chamber without getting it on the glass of the chamber. Then I have to clean it with alcohol and becomes a mission. So what I used to do was blast straight into a glass jar that I put a cap on and purge. I manage to get it to remove the butane but then all the dab is stuck to the glass. Has anyone had experience with using 99.9% alcohol to remove the butane while evaporating the alcohol (like in the glass jar I mentioned).I have heard this works great. I am abit scared to try. This is the alcohol. Absolute ethanol to be axact. This alcohol is the shit. Been cleaning everything with it.
  14. Thanks man. I always forget about the heating mat. I do have one which I use for my clone dome. Will defs use it. Thanks for the reminder. My vacuum chambers are small (small consol jars 250ml) as I use a manual brake bleeder to pull the air out. It obviously isn't a perfect vacuum but every bit helps. Still looking for old compressors to make a proper vacuum pump. Yeah the screen is the only filtration I use to make sure I don't blast the plant matter into the dab and only allow butane through. I think I have one that is in the 70 micron if I'm not mistaken. 20 micron is the lowest I should go, or 25 mocron. Not sure. If I recall correctly with the bags for bubble hash the last one is quite low, 20 to 32 micron or something. I am in it for the pure gold, no green stuff 😂
