    A titanium spoon or spork is sounding good, can just use as is for a poor man's ti vape. What should one look for regarding grades.

    Also, we say ti vape. Essentially it's a really nice hot knife, does the honey oil vaporize 100% as it hits the heat or is there some combustion in the mix?

    :science:

    this is a realy good question ...my guest on it is pure canaoil cant burn ,just sublimis realy fast cause there is nothing to burn .....like burning water ....cause the other day I just try to vap some honey on my famous ceramic heater (right in the red ,so hot enough to burn) but no ....oil disapear ...no fire no intense smoke ,any trace on my stick ....so i think it make fast vaporization/sublimation but i can be wrong

    Thats the cool part vtac....making BHO, you dont dissolve any plant matter into the mix. As such, because we never apply a flame, it never combusts! The hot pad heats it to the point where it boils and pours out vapor. Its REALLY fast vaporization.

    As far as grade go, we're using grade 2 titanium, .063 " thick. grade 2 is essentially the same as grade 1.

    Nice! That's what I was hoping. What would constitute BHO, mainly just melted trichomes?

    It's such a beautiful thing, rock hard amber until heated... it's like taffy, complete with super long strings as you pull it apart. :ko:

    I'm looking at this ti spork, just says polished titanium, I emailed 'em about the grade used.

    Heat that spork!

    vtac, BHO is Butane Extract Honey Oil, or oil made using butane. The color and clarity of the oil you posted showed that it clearly didnt have plant matter in the oil, so id say vape that oil up!

    Yep, it looks really pure. :)

    What I'm wondering is, what exactly is extracted by the 'tane... What does the final purged product consist of? Mostly melted trichomes (for high purity BHO)? They are essentially oily resin, so that makes sense.

    I've been vaping it with the SSV, on top of herb. It works, but surely hot Ti (or ceramic) is more efficient. 2 Ti sporks on the way, haven't heard back from either place about the grade they use. This one is made in Japan... hopefully one of them is quality.

    Need to blast some more bud pretty soon. :D

    So heres the deal

    You've seen Trich pictures, wehre its a head and a stalk. The trichomes are all just waxy plant husk. Inside the trichomes is the plant's resin, or sap. Full melt hash displays this beautifully....you have a block of large fat heads, which means very little plant matter compared to resin. When you hit it with heat, the trich's disintegrate, and the resin oozes out. That resin comes in contact with the heat, boils, and is vaporized up. In the case of a bowl of weed, the thc vapor is carried along with the burning plant matter, and in the case of full melt hash, with a miniscule amount of plant matter.

    So, BHO is essentially just the resin sitting inside the trichome.

    I'm thinking those okief tubes could be made pretty easy hey, maybe not as nice but a shit load cheaper with a local welder, just find the 120 micron steel screening a hose clamp for the bottom end & a rubber bung up top with an approriate hole & that's it isn't 50 - 60 euro's then postage is a bit to pony up for, something that looks so simple, some peop's use fucken PVC (prolly not a great idea) don't they.

    Colibri is pretty good, the best are Vector and Lava. You can also consider Lucienne and yes, Colibri.
