I tried the butane as described on Erowid at
and found that it worked extremely well. I used approximately 1 ounce of some dried leaf clippings and about 1/16th an ounce of some really old buds that I had lying around.
I extracted using two 3.5oz cannisters of ultra-refined butane (lighter
fluid refill) into a 12 inch PVC pipe with a 1.5 inch inner diameter. I used several small holes in the bottom with a piece of paper napkin as the filter. My result was about 1.9 grams of pure hash oil (about 5% yield).
I rolled two 1.5 gram joints and put a small amount (perhaps .2g) of this oil in only of of the two joints. Then two friends and I compared the effects of these two joints. The hash-laced joint was clearly much stronger to all three of us-- a much more uplifting, heady high and no 'couch lock' effect. The comedown took longer than with the unlaced joint as well.
The source material was headed for the trash -- I now can't believe I almost threw this away! This oil is absolutely a treasure. It took only about 20-30 minutes of effort from start to finish to make. Highly recommended!
