Scooter Posted August 23, 2012 Report Share Posted August 23, 2012 (edited) Many people get confused between Simpsons Oil ( aka Phoenix Tears, RS Oil, etc ), Butane extractions, Alcohol extractions, Hash oils, cold water extractions, the list goes one. I am focused on Alcohol tinctures myself; almost anyone can do them, they're more easily dosed, fast acting and very effective. But I also use the residual solids for ointments and lotions. I have an old ISO and an ISO-2. Both are virtually identical, and both do a superb extraction job. I've had the one for 30 years; had the instructions but lost them. Read them so much as a kid I had them memorized anyhoo! I have made some universe rattling hash oil with them, and the raw tinctures are excellent. I've used chloroform and alcohol ( potable and isopropyl ) as solvents. I know the machine my way and the company way. Other ISO owners; what are your techniques? Do you use the acid much, different solvents, found some tricks maybe? I can answer any questions you may have regarding their use as well.
