    Hello all. I've tried some of the commercial vape juice, and I liked it. I would like to make my own, and I was wondering if there are other diy folks that can give me some tips and trick, and how to stay away from stuff, to make the vape that is no good.

    Just got my harvest for this year in and ready for some THC juice. So if you can direct me to some good tutorials and or videos I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks for reading my post. ;)

    Hey Rebel !-- At the right temp and pressure hash oil can be squished out of bud or hash !-- A Rosen press can be a commercially available hydrolic press with heated plates
    Or one of the commercially available Rosen Press-- The weed is placed into mesh bags and then between Parchment paper -- Then placed into the press- the heat and pressure force the hash oil thru the mesh bag and out onto the parchment paper for collection !-- If U see a product with "Live Resin" ?-- That means the hash oil was pressed from fresh weed !-- Hash oil can also be collected from Super Critical CO2 extraction -- The hash oil and sometimes a little terepene to make it flow a little better are used to fill vape cartridges !-- Nothing else should be in a cartridge !

    So, what are you going to use for a thinner?

    I have no idea what a thinner is or what kind to use.

    You generally cannot use straight oils or other concentrates in a vape. You need some kind of "thinner" or liquidizer to make them thin enough to load into a cartridge. But (and it is a big but), we really don't know what kind of thinner is safe. Many people used either vegetable glycol (VG) or propylene glycol (PG). But now there is evidence that inhaling the vaporized fumes of these products is bad for your lungs. Things like vitamin E acetate and hydrogen cyanide have been found in carts. People are dying but no one knows why. The CDC and doctors have found no definitive common denominator in the illness and deaths. As no one really knows what is causing all this, it might be better to not make and use vape products at all.

    Rosin is a purer, thinner extract than many others. It doesn't use any chemicals at all to extract the cannabinoids, just heat and pressure. But it is still too sticky and thick to get into a vape cart without thinning it some. You can smoke rosin, like any other concentrate. Vaping may be more dangerous than smoking.

    this guy isn't bad if you can get by his voice. me personally, i avoid all things vape related. way too many variables we have no idea of the affects on the human body.

    Making your own vape juice is quite complicated. Maybe you get a really qualitative one but personally I'll choose to just purchase it. I got used to purekana products and I'm not sure that even making my own will make me want to replace them. Although, maybe I should try.

    You can "smoke" Rosin as is with a PAX 3 (deluxe edition) that comes with a concentrate oven. No thinning agent is required.

    20191031_212109.jpg I'm not sure if you can see this but this is pure CO2 extractate, unthinned. It has a fantastic flavor with all the notes of the weed it came from, super clean and crisp. Note how it is a solid at RT and does not flow. If you pre-warm it for a bit before use (near a light bulb, or your car heater vent on hot, or my personal favorite The Toasty Armpit), you can use it in a vape.
    But!!! Because it doesn't flow, you can't just hit and hit and hit like passing at a party, it should be set down to settle in a warm place for a bit. It lives in my purse. A single cc has lasted me a whole year and counting.
    I don't like thinners because we don't understand them yet. Glycerin tincture is GREAT in a bottle of Polar blueberry lemonade seltzer, though. Holla, Woostah!
