There IS an extract available. The essential oil is also active.

Hi, KTB. Do you know if odoratissimum works well in water extract?

Hi Ghoststar... to my (limited) knowledge on this plant, I believe that the actives are in the oil... I would recommend a hydroalcoholic extract i.e. vodka. If anyone knows better than I, please step in here, but I think you will need some alcohol in there to pull the goodies out of it.

dissolve a hydro alcoholic extract of it in high proof grain alcohol, and absorb and evap into mullein or damiana.

or, simply soak in vodka for a few days, and reduce the vodka to a very small amount of liquid, and then put it straight onto a base herb, and evap, and load in a pipe.

silica dessicant will help get the last of it evapped n dry. i usually first put mullein in a glass jar, then pour my grain alcohol w/ whatever extracts or isolates in it, then put that jar in a glass cup with very hot water, let it sit for an hour or two, then remove the glasss jar from water bath, put a screen of metal over the material, put a couple silica dessicant packets on screen, and cap jar, let it sit overnight, and it be bone dry.

I just bought an ouce of Imphepho after hearing about the experiences in this thread and I don't have any flowers. It looks like cotton. I read online that the leaves have tiny white hairs that make it appear wooly, but it looks like straight cotton with no leaves in sight.
I'm certain this is Imphepho because I bought it from one of the more well thought of stores on the internet.
Should I smoke this stuff?

Cant give you advice on what you should or should not smoke.

That 'cotton' would be the flowers.

That's what I was thinking. After doing some research there are different strains.
I mixed with tobacco in a joint about 75% tobacco and 25% imphepho, and it's fantastic. It's really strong in it's current form. I'm making an extract so I have high hopes for that.
