Using a Pressure Cooker to make cannaoil ???
Posted 09 October 2011 - 01:05 PM
What I was thinking about trying was...
take 1/3 cup coconut oil and 8 grams cleaned herb
add that to a pint mason jar and seal it up
pressure cook for ___?___ minutes
would this work ???
or have I smoked one too many bowls today and just need to go to bed

I cant recall the vaporization point of THC and other cannabinoids but i believe you are unnecessarily adding variables (+heat, PSI) to the situation when they are not needed for adequate extraction.

Wouldn't the fact that the oil/herb was in a sealed container, prevent any evaporation of the thc?
Again Im just looking for some feedback before I attempt this (if I attempt this)
I got the idea from looking at this group of pictures a few weeks back

And it looks like 15psi = ~250f so I really don't see why this wouldn't work.
I've made cannaoil in the oven @ 250F for ~ 1 hour and had good results.
I will ponder this a bit and do some more reading on the subject.
I would really like to hear more input from GC on this as well.
If I'm treading on new ground here ...
I have no problem trying this ... for Science !!!

I can't find any reason why using a PC wouldn't work.
I've had many people tell me ... Don't try it, you're adding a variable that's not needed
Well....heat really isn't needed to make cannaoil either but it helps
So I tried yesterday it with some vaped weed and it definitely wasn't a failure
I added ~30g vaped herb to 1/2 cup coconut oil and PD'd for ~60 minutes at 15psi
My only real issue was trying to keep the oil/herb mix stirred whilst in the PC.
I made a decent scaffolding with bamboo skewers and aluminum pie pans
but I believe that i can do a better job keeping it stirred with a different method
My next attempt will be with a regular batch of herb/oil
a lower pressure (5psi rather than 15) and an improved stirring method.
I have faith that this can work, and work well.
Once I've eaten this batch of brownies.
I will attempt this and report back

Im hoping that the pressure (like heat) will aid in the extraction process.
I can't find any reason why it wouldn't help
and no one seems to have tried it before .... so here we are
Look on youtube, theres a few tutorials on how to use a pressure cooker for cannaoil, ive only tried one time with trim, works about as well as cooking in a 'sealed' container, a little easier to use if you have a lot to process
