half ass recipe for the oil:
step 1-take a pound of ragweed(very cheap, low grade pot) and chop it up with a spice mill, blender or other suitable appliance. it should be finely chopped up into tiny bits, but not powdered, that's overkill.
step 2-put it in a bowl.
step 3-pour enough grain alcohol on top of it to saturate it completely, then cover it with saran wrap, to keep the alcohol from evaporating.
step 4-leave it in your refrigerator overnight. then check it to see if it needs more alcohol added to it to keep it covered completely. add the alcohol, if it needed it, and cover it again with saran wrap as before. put it back in the refrigerator overnight again.
step 5-take the bowl out and throw the saran wrap away. get an appropritate sized container and affix an appropritate sized round piece of cheesecloth on top of the container to act as a filter for the solid debris. put rubber bands around the container to hold the filter in place. the finished contraption should look something like this
but the substance will be a green mush instead of white, and don't forget to affix the cheesecloth firmly with rubber bands or whatever, otherwise the force produced in the next step will cause the whole thing to sink down into the bottom of the container.
step 6-stir the contents of the bowl to facilitate pouring the semi-solid mixture into the container prepared in step 5. pour the mixture into the container, and be sure to scape all the remaining bits from the bowl into the container, and let the mush drain for a few minutes. unaffix the cheesecloth carefully, without letting it dip down into the container, and without spilling any bits into the liquid at the bottom of the container. wrap the mush up so that you can squeeze the excess juice out of the mush, letting the pure liquid juice drip into the container.
step 7-put the already squeezed ball of mush aside, preferably in your refrigerator.
step 8-pour the contents of the container into a large plastic jug, and label it or remember it as "Solution A". put it in your refrigerator.
step 9-using the mush that is still wrapped in cheesecloth from step 7, perform steps 2 through 7 again.
step 10-pour the contents of the container into a large plastic jug, and label it or remember it as "Solution B". put it in your refrigerator.
step 11-if u are a cheap ass, or you had to use normal quality weed because no low grade weed was available, you can perform steps 12 and 13. otherwise, skip to step 14 and throw away the mush that you saved from within step 9.
step 12-using the mush that is still wrapped in cheesecloth from the steps performed from within step 9, perform steps 2 through 6 one last time. throw away the mush.
step 13-pour the contents of the container into a drinking glass. drink at your own risk. a word of caution, a friend of mine was knocked out for about 30 hours from drinking everclear/thc mixture, which is what this is.
step 14-combine "Solution A" with "Solution B" and put it in an appropriate sized container with a wide open top.
step 15-add some pure almond extract to the mixture.
step 16-put the container in your refrigerator, uncovered for a few days.
step 17-put the container inside a bell jar, as pictured here.
step 18-suck as much air as you can out of the jar(there is an opening at the bottom of the base) according to the instructions that came with it.
step 19-when you see that the liquid is evaporated as much as it can(maybe a day or so), take it out.
step 20-if it came out thick and oily, you can use it as hash oil, and smoke it in a glass bowl, or put it on a bowl of weed. also, you can consume it. if it came out too liquid, you can soak a bag of weed in it, and let it dry. if it came out solid, or near solid, you did a good job, and it is almost gonna be like hash. smoke it in a pipe.
