Bho

Looks like it's a go for BHO!

The product is problematic. It really is a different experience than flower. And, personally, I find it too strong, the feelings are uncomfortable to me. We in Colorado are struggling with the best way to regulate this market. It is a result of this "informal" move away from the insanity of the War on Drugs.

I would like to note that there is a significant difference between a BHO lab and meth lab. Regardless of what you do, a meth lab leaves the location essentially uninhabitable (even if nothing goes catastrophically wrong) while a BHO lab just blows up. Well, it seems worth noting to me.

For some folks nothing is ever strong enough, no high is too high, no low is too low.

The thing about this article that struck me is that it offered absolutely no explanation of why Mr. Rize claims BHO is dangerous nor any suggestions as to anything that shows it is. Now that several states have legalized pot and its variations it strikes me that it would be money well spent if the government funded a university study on it. Given that it is so popular at pot stores, getting volunteers shouldn't be difficult.

I have to admit that that was my first impression, but I am mildly dyslexic.

But how is it dangerous? This is what I don't get about any of these claims that such drug is dangerous for this and that reason. I'm not saying, however, that drugs like meth or heroin aren't bad. Hell, that's completely the opposite of my intention. There's proof, both academic (through medical records and such) as well as anecdotal (I bet you everyone knows someone who's life has been fucked by heroin, meth, or some hard drug) of how bad it is. But, weed? Acid? Shrooms? That kind of stuff begets academic research into their benefits and their drawbacks.

Two points were raised: Residue from the butane (lubricants, etc.) and pesticide residue. Both are concerns.

Two of the local growers cultivate organic cannabis.

And like CD, I don't like it. High quality bud is every bit as potent as hashish from the 60s and 70s, and the high is "clean" for the "up" varieties, no sleepy hangover.

Sure RP, for some folks nothing is ever strong enough. That's why we have billionaires.

Here's the real insanity:

Quote:
But even if Congress passes and President Obama signs the recently introduced CARERS Act, which would allow federal agencies like the FDA to start studying hash oil, it will take five to ten years of research before we know anything definitive.
Reefer Madness still rules.

I have no idea how toxic butane itself is, but getting ultrapure butane is not difficult and not even that expensive. And the butane is highly volatile. Think butane lighter. Would pesticides be any worse for the pot used here and any other?

I guess it is possible that some garage based illicit processor might get a source of cheap, contaminated butane. But in a state where it is legal, hopefully that would be minimal.

What is the process to make hash oil or whatever it is one feeds vap machines with?
