Soft extract with ethanol. -

Post by egasimus » Wed Jun 08, 2011 3:48 am

Hi there. Sorry if I'm violating any rules, but I have a quick question, and then I'm probably outta here.

I'm trying to use sagewisdom.org's recipe to prepare soft extract. However, I have no access to isopropyl alcohol. Could I use ethanol? My guess is that it would work just as well, but I'd rather be sure before I waste any plant material. Thanks in advance :)

Salvinorins are sparingly soluble in ethanol; if you use a large enough volume, it should be ok. Depending on the solubility in isopropyl alcohol - which I don't know - you might need to use a good bit more. Pretty sure I read the acetone's ok too. & I think a better solvent of salvinorins than ethanol.
