Don't throw it away use Ethanol. I buy cheap vodka and distill it down to 185 proof 90%+ in one of these:Glad i read this in time! ... 3 bottles of iso ... 2 jars of suspect moldy weed .... and a click away from getting the coffee filters!!
Think i may have dodged the bullet!! (like this)

Perhaps i can use the ISO for making a Covid-Killer Spray!!
Yeah .. I'm quickly going off the idea!!
Looks like my jars are destined for the dustbin!!
Thanks MoG .. It's a great suggestion and super informational! Clever stuff!Don't throw it away use Ethanol. I buy cheap vodka and distill it down to 185 proof 90%+ in one of these:

I get 2 - 1.75L of vodka for $20 and distill it down to about 1.3L of ethanol.
The ethanol extraction is equal in stripping power for the cannabinoids as ISO. There are still toxins remaining but Probably not more than drinking a beer.
A cold quick wash with winterization is best for carts etc. Long warm wash for edibles.
After the wash put it in the distiller and get about 80% of the ethanol back and then I cook off the remaining ethanol in a rice cooker. I do a long soak on all of my rosin chips. It makes Sludge. The ugliest stuff you ever saw and tastes bad by itself. I make it into chocolate using my recipe and 3 - 4 drops of synthetic Terpenes to give it a flavor - This shit will get you so high!
I did not think the yield would be very good either but 3 qt jars of rosin chips yielded 50g of extract that has got to be ~600mg of cannabinoids per gram that is 30,000 mg of medicine. Yes it is a pain in the ass to process. I do it outside even though the explosive power of ethanol is only 1/10 that of butane it still has the potential to pool and explode. It tastes bad without adding some synthetic terps. The Strawberry Banana makes it actually desirable in my chocolate recipe. Bubble Gum and Green Crack work well also.Thanks MoG .. It's a great suggestion and super informational! Clever stuff!
To be fair, i don't think I'll get the kind of return from my jars to warrant going to these measures! It's super cool it can be done though!
I was hoping to throw some iso in jar, give it a swirl, coffee filter it out, and wait for an evap to scrape up a bit of goo that would be smeared on a rizla and smoked up! !
Even that process was sounding a little involved for me!!
Thanks again - you're a legend!!
