I am considering my options on creating tinctures ( directly of by creating extraction first )
I wish to keep (as much as possible ) of goodies (cannabioids, terpentines…) usable (within extraction)
I have ruled butane extraction out due to risk of explosion & other issues…
At this point I am considering green dragon extraction (dissolving to alcohol-and water it is mixed with- 40% vol. ? 80% vol. ? (- or 80 or 160 proof?? ). And Rosin press method. (high pressure – lowish temp ) … lets put something to nail things down a bit… 10 metric tons pressure for 1 sq.inch ( 6.5 cm2) @ 160F or 70C … that should be fairly big while not ‘big ass’
What would be the difference in total amount of goodies extracted between these methods? I do understand that rosin press will have big swings depending on pressure used (see follow up questions). Try to word what you refer to -the low end (hair curl) and/or high end ( big ass press) in your comparison.
Please do post your view - preferably with notes on what do you base your view on on this matter.
Second… Dose anyone have scientific research or similar hard facts regarding the properties of each method and how then affect the process and efficiency (and/or terpenes) ?
I mean things like temperature in dissolving to alcohol. Time allowance for dissolvment to alcohol(and water). pressure in rosin. temperature in rosin.
Thanks for reading and sorry for spelling errors and weird structures – non native speaker and flue is bugging me.
