Making a potent RSO out of trim


If you are a grower like me you end up with a ton of trim. I used to toss it in the burn barrel, then I started using it for vape leaf but stll and a ton. So then I decided to make useful meds with it. My favorite, which I am gonna share with you here, is very easy and VERY much worthwhile doin. So here is how I do it.

I start with any amount of trim/flower, either will work and flower produces much more potent RSO but TRULY DON"T Underestimate the potency of RSO made from good trim, the stuff is great. I decarb this @ 250 degrees for thirty minutes. I always use quart canning jars to decarb, this holds any vaporized trics in the jar so you don't waste any.20211025_124529.jpg

After cooling I open the jars and draw off the "hit" of any vaporized trics.;) Then I give it a quick grind or run through it w/siszers. Then the ground up material goes into a pint jar where solvent is used to extract the trics from the plant material. I use Everclear mostly for my solvent but one could use Moon, vodka or any "DRINKABLE" potent alcohol that carries little or no flavor.

OK I missed this picture:rolleyes:

Then I shake the jar with plant material and alcohol well for a few minutes, always do this several times before cooking.
OPTIONAL: I shake my mix twice a day for 1 or 2 weeks before cookin, seems to make a stronger batch.;)

After the shake period I strain the darkened liquid off into another jar.

Then I strain of the precious liquid. I use cheese cloth to strain and use a spoon to help strain more good out of the material

After straining I put the old plant material in another jar and fill it to just 1/4 inch above the material and rinse any leftovers out of the plant material, this will surprise you how dark it will be with goodies. In this pic. I have my ground plant and some rinse from the last time which will be mixed with any new everclear that is needed. Sometimes I save my rinse for the next batch when I have a big amount like i did before this batch so I will be using it in this batch.

Notice the color of this rinse, this will make a GOOD ONE.:)

Once the liquid is strained into another jar it's off to the crock pot.
I usually put my pint jar in the crock but I ALWAYS put a canning ring under the jar (for RSO) so they don't create a hot spot, remember heat is good and bad, too much can create a loss of potency so use something under the jar just to be on the safe side. I cook my RSO on lowest possible setting on the crock.;) You can also just let the alcohol just evaporate off but it takes a long time.
Ok the rest in part 2 cause the system wont let me do it in one

Now it's cookin time
Here I am in the process of cooking it down, at this point you can either make RSO or a liquid THC (liquid THC you only evaporate half of the liquid), I posted that in a previous article. The advantage of liquid THC is the time it takes to effect you, with liquid THC it can effect you in as little as 20 minutes as to where RSO typically takes close to an forty five minutes to hour to feel the real effect of it. That is if you do it right but pretty hard to mess this one up;).
Being de-carbed your RSO could even be made by simple evaporation though it would take MUCH longer.

I usually cook mine over night, I put it on later in the evening and when I get up it's 3/4 done. Remember KEEP ER ON LOW. and this is the results of this process. I usually evap mine down to thick but slightly runny so it effects me a little faster. leaves about 3/16 inch of gooey RSO in the bottom of the cook off jar.
This syringe contains about 13 or 14 grams of RSO, in the dispensary here they get 50 a gram, ouch

When you dose go slowly, even though it wasn't made with actual flower it still will kick your butt if you do too much. I usually do a line outta the syringe the length of 3 grains of rice, if made right and from decient flower that is plenty. Try a small dose and in an hour if not enough try a little more. I never used to get much off edibles till I found this.
I hope I have made this understandable, if not you can always PM me and I will try again

Hey @St.Roostifer

Thank you so much Jimi! I have a pound of trim I was going to make bubble hash with but I might give RSO a try. I’ll try the slow evaporation without heat to see how that does.

Ha ha my lungs are probably too trashed to notice lol. I’ll vape it in my atty like I do with bubble hash. I’m in a very limited diet due to digestive issues so I don’t bother with edibles. Still should make some hard hitting oil nevertheless. 👍

Yes but RSO is taken under the tongue usually and only takes a line out of a syringe about the length of 3 grains of rice. It's a completely different type of high, feels like you are floating, wonderful effect that lasts 6 to 8 hours.

I can't get much effect out of any other edible that I have tried because when I was 3 yrs. old I had over 3 foot of intestine removed, eaten things go through my system faster that most and my body doesn't get a chance to absorb much before it passes through. But RSO under the tongue gives me full effect. Caution it tasted strong, very strong.
