I've been cleaning my pieces for years using alcohol with a combo of some salt which works great for me. Lately, i've been looking into making hash oil for health reasons since lately i've been feeling like i've got the smoker's cough. I've been reading many threads and different sites about making oil using hash/trim/bud but never resin. I'm not one to clean my pipe then smoke a ball of resin but I have in the past. It's obvious there still THC in the resin. I'm wondering if anyone has tried using that resin to make oil. I know the amount of resin is probably small but I was thinking if that was possible I would just start saving up and trying this out. Most methods I've read for making hash oil have used alcohol to extract the THC then evaporate off the alcohol leaving the oil. Since i already have the resin in an alcohol solution i was thinking that maybe I could go one step farther and extract some oil out of it. Anyone?
I've been up since 5am yesterday (now almost 7am) and can't sleep since I had to quit smoking for a drug test coming up so don't rip me apart if this is a stupid question. I'm not trying to dispute the actual process of making the oil I just summed it up real quick to get my question out there. Also, i'm still not sure whether or not it's still called "Hash oil" if it's made from say.. trim but regardless.
