[Technique] Microwave-Assisted Extraction

Migrated topic.

BundleflowerPower: presumably you just drink the liquid after filtering or decanting away from the solids?

Yes. An interesting note is when I combined some of the rue and acacia teas which were both microwaved, alkaloids immediately precipitated. I'm not sure if it was the harmalas or dmt. The rue tea was acidified while the acacia was not.
 
I think centrifuging is a cheaper/more reliable solution to breaking up an emulsion.
 
Emulsion breaking: freeze - thaw , very much worth an attempt, quite effective in many cases.

I did a simple experiment with P. Harmala. 12 g was covered with a minimal amount of water which was acidified with 1000 mg of vitamin c. This was microwaved for 1 min.

A freind and I then consumed the rue along with 10 g each of normaly prepared ACRB brew. We drank this over the course of an hour and a half. A very powerful experience resulted.

The tea made from the rue was also very easy to drink compared to the normal 3x boiling method.

I should note that the effects of the rue seemed a little different than normal. More of an electric feel. Perhaps some of the harmalas were reduced to THH in the microwave?

Edit: today I decided to attempt to brew acacia using this method, a sort of bio essay guided research. I covered 5 g of ACRB in a small glass and covered with minimal water. No acidification used. Microwaved for 1 min. I had 140 mg of harmalas which I re-constituted in water and drank, followed 15 min later by the light.

It works. It was almost as powerful as the 6 g rue + 10 g ACRB brew I mentioned above.

Btw, the taste was very tolerable. Better than the egg white trick or letting it decant over and over.

. Was wondering if anyone is using the microwave to brew rue? I think im going to give this a try....it only takes a minute after all.

things should be powdered finely for this to work..
edit[also if he's using a minimal amount of water, he must be drinking the whole thing with plant material, nasty...] apparently not.. reading the rest of the thread
 
The subject of using a microwave brings back memory of years back as a some people have used microwaves to dry out green pot...

I was told that it would dry the pot quickly.. but cause a re arangment of the molecules sometimes making it more potent!

Only a couple years back i played with the idea of using a microwave in the process of dmt extraction..now the subject is brought up!

I think we are dealing with altering molecules here...
 
What i talked about in my post above i knew about many years back...

just found google link below ... is a link about using microwave with pot...

Jun 10, 2007 - I looked at all of the stuff about microwaving your weed to make it stronger and i tried it. It turns out ... But it's pretty suspiciouse how much more potent it made the weed. ... There are some people who don't like to use a microwave at all, but if you feel comfortable using it for food, than it should be fine for bud.
 
I have tried to dry pot like this many years ago.
Only once because imo it was the worst thing that you can do to it. Didn't really dry properly and tasted harsh and I think it probably made it weaker. I think heating like this would vape off the THC as this method with correct equipment can collect condensated essential oils...so i guessing pretty high temperature

I think it would suit rue as the harmalas are pretty tough

This is strange because there are [MANY READS] on line claiming that pot [even crappy pot] was made much stronger by microwaves...

Ive also read that microwaves have a power enhancing effect used in process of DMT extraction or tea form...

Is it posible your pot was extra weak to begin with?
 
Also remember... a microwave turned on low might have a very different effect on pot or anything else.. than when turned on a higher setting!:thumb_up:

I think the higher the setting the higher the chances are of destroying the bud ...bud. 😁
 
Efficiency of MAE compared with Heat Reflux Extraction and Ultra-sound Assisted Extraction.
Optimal conditions (temp. solvent, time) for MAE determined.
I wonder if it possible to use some kind of thermometer inside a kitchen microwave oven.

Well I just want to drop here that I once used my regular microwave compared to the real cooking TEK and it got far less goodies 😁 😁

Therefore did never go that way again : /


EDIT: Just read briefly through that paper to check if I totally misdid something - why do they always change between "vasicine" and "visicine" :roll: :d
