Broken glass in bud - what to do? you decide!

Ya soak in alcohol then filter is my vote. Leave the bottoms of the liquid in the soaking jar.

You could use a bong and hypothetically the water should trap the glass dust… I’d use something with alot of water and haul sloooowly though lol

Would it be safe to run through a press?
No glass would escape (pick out visible chunks)

Alcohol extract. Make hash oil from it. Soak it in alcohol and strain it through a coffee filter. Then waft off the alcohol in a double boiler on low heat. No glass that way. Also works for moldy weed. Safe & reliable. You can smoke the oil or make it into a skin cream with coconut oil and bees wax.

You can also pack it into a metal pipe and make BHO shatter with butane. Not my preference, but that is another option. A solvent extract is your best bet here to get rid of any glass.

I’d think it would be ok in a bubbler or a bong, glass would sink in the water!

I like this idea.
I make qwiso usually but i guess the cannabinoids would still go into the drink. And be felt. Would there be any need to decarboxylate first being as its not being burned. Not trying to be annoying i might try this on this couple year old jack in my freezer. Should i decarb trim first since it wont be smoking at end and if op was to do it should they decarb the bud first?

Yes you need to decarb it. Here is a link to my tincture thread. It should have all the info needed to do this.

Cool, if you want to drink a shot or two, I would suggest about 7 grams of decarbed bud in a fifth of booze.

Unpopular opinion, but dude, just trash the whole thing. It will be difficult and you’ll likely shed a tear or two, as we will for you, but l… I dont really know where I was going with that sentence.

i would blast some bho.

Bong. Glass could cut your filters, rolling joints could cut your fingers,

That’s been my thoughts on moldy buds for awhile. Wouldn’t the alcohol kill any spores and fungi present in it anyways? It’s sad, but my trim jar went moldy. If I can save it I want to. Sorry to hijack the thread :sweat:

I would just give it a quick ISO way and be done with it.

Good to know. The heatwave and thunderstorms we’ve had were the downfall of that jar

So yes the alcohol will kill mold and the spores can be filtered out with a 25 micron filter. It won’t, however, remove any of the metabolites of the mold, which can be harmful.

This.

Currently smoking shatter made from molded bud. I’m well aware that mycotoxins will still exist in the end product, and even to some extent be concentrated. But you wont have to worry about living spores entering and spreading in your lungs (win!)

I choose to be okay with it, but it can definitely be harmful. Haven’t noticed any ill effects yet though.

As for glass, I would think doing an iso wash and running it through a couple of coffee filters would be more than enough to remove the glass.

… But not any mycotoxins or other byproducts of the mold.
