So I was in Cali for two weeks visiting a friend recently and DAMN I fell in love with dem concentrates. I have no rig or bong at home right now so I was debating on whether or not to get one. I will also have to buy a torch, apparently torch lighters aren't even allowed to be in checked bags... so I had to leave the nice one I bought in Cali. \nAnyway, the big question is: should I start making oil myself or buy 50-60 dollar grams of honey oil, crumble, shatter, etc from sketchy dealers. I'm currently getting 250-270 dollar DANK ounces from someone, so would it be worth it to try and make my own oil off that? It's incredibly sticky bud... almost too sticky, and has crystals ALL over, on the stems and even the leaves that didn't get trimmed... good bud for making oil or no? or should I just stick to buying the oil? or just don't bother with it at all and stick to bud? \nI know the process of making good oil is almost like an art and takes skill and practice to master but I'm pretty confident with my internet-tutorial reading abilities. One thing I haven't put too much thought into is the cost of the materials needed to make good oil, is it pretty costly? I'm someone who likes to go for the best, and the oil that I've tried here (midwest) is actually pretty superb, even better than the stuff I was getting from dispensaries in Cali. I just don't like dealing with sketchy dealers that I do not know too well. \nRe-posting this here, can't figure out how to delete the one I made on the Q&A forum haha, and it's not getting much attention so I thought I'd post this here.
