Since I smoke for the effect and must be stealth in many cases I put about 4 oz in jars last tonight with RO water and filled to the brim wit’s a plastic cup holding it down. Not over packed Emptied it after 18 hours and the stink along with the water looking deep brown was fascinating to see. Will be changing the water every 12-24 hours for a week or more.
if there is any interest on process, pictures and final smoke im more than happy to document here.

Picture is of my first small jars . I changed to quart jars tonight.

Yes, Exactly what is suppose to happen, the water starts off very brown crappy looking and will be almost clear in about 5 days or so.
Make sure you dry the bud out and put it in front of a fan hanging in a strainer basket helps.

I was thinking of using a salad spinner to get most of the water out. It doesn’t move the buds around which should protect tris and get most of the water out of them.
here is 4 oz in water after second day drain.

from what I’ve read the smoke and taste is almost non existent.but will be one of the smoothest smokes. Buds are smaller won’t look as nice but I’m more interested in the effects. Will post pictures after I change water tonight.

Bud washing ultimately helps to remove dust, pesticides, insects, and other unwanted particles from cannabis flowers, leaving them squeaky clean and in better condition.

Here is drained water after two days and water after 5 days the buds shown are from the small 5 day jar. Drying this tomorrow if the water is clear again.

I wonder what would happen if you pulled a vacuum on that jar down to say 1000 microns? Should dry it in no time.

I can remember preparing weed for an Isomerizer I owned in the 70s or there abouts.

You got all the weed in this hopper basket that had a big coffee filter, about a 1/4 pound all chopped up.

Step one was to pour a bunch of just about boiling water. It would start coming through almost black, then clear.

Squeeze out water dry out in a cookie pan in low heat oven. Once dry, it lost quite a bit of weight/volume and smoked very smooth.

Then of course weed went back in hopper for the alcohol perculation.

That had to take real bravery to fill those jars with water! Looking good so far! I was thinking, wonder what if anything would yield if the water was then poured it through bubble bags? Refrigerate until cold, pour through....

The right water temp comes into play you want the water to be tempered (room temp) not hot but not cold either , cold water will start to knock the Thrics off.
But if it is just right no thrics should break away from bud , thus none to to speak of if strain in bubble bags.
