Equipment & Ingredients

  • Equipment
  • 2 Buckets

  • 1 large wooden spoon or stick

  • 1 strainer

  • coffee filters

  • rice cooker

  • Ingredients
  • 1 oz cannabis decarbed

  • 2 cups everclear or high proof alcohol


  • Place the decarbed cannabis in a plastic bucket and crush the plant using a large wooden spoon. While crushing, add in 1 cup of everclear alcohol until all of the plant material is completely soaked.
  • Stir the mixture for about four minutes, and as you stir the mixture the cannabinoids will begin dissolving which is exactly what you want.
  • Next, using a strainer, strain the solvent mixture into another bucket. Repeat this process for the second wash. Again add 1 cup of everclear to the plant material and work for another four minutes to extract the remaining THC. Strain this new solvent mix into the bucket containing the first mix that was previously separated.
  • Discard the twice washed plant material.Pour the solvent mixture through a coffee filter into a clean container. Boil the solvent off in a safe environment. A rice cooker will boil the solvent off nicely.
  • CAUTION: the solvent is flammable and the vapors are toxic.

    CAUTION: Avoid stove-tops, red-hot elements, sparks, cigarettes, and open flames as the fumes can be extremely dangerous.

  • If you're using a rice cooker, add the solvent to rice cooker and turn on heat.
    Make sure you are in a well-ventilated area and set up a fan to carry the solvent fumes away. If you can complete this step outside.
  • Continue to add mixture to cooker as the solvent evaporates until you have added it all to the cooker.Continue to reduce the liquid until you have roughly 1 cup liquid left.Place in a container or jar and let stand for at least 24 hours.
  • Then you can add to a dropper and use as you wish for edibles or wellness!
