So I just started making BHO with a glass extractor after reading tons of info on here and toke city, and have a question involving BHO taste since this is really my first time dealing with actual BHO. Within the past few days, I have done a few tiny runs. Since my runs all used below 3 grams of relatively decent weed, I didn't utilize any vac purge, just water baths, oven purging at 150 and some torch razing. I'm pretty sure I over did the temps/purging for a majority of the runs, because the product was pretty dark at normal light but in the light it clearly looked like amber sap. Every time the BHO has smelled really good and looked great on the pyrex plate even if it was overpurged. The smell was exactly like what I have smelled when making Glycerin tinctures and other various edibles. I use a TI pad to vape it, and there is always some level of taste of this strong, earthy almost vaped opium like smell...it doesn't remind me at all of fuel and I'm using high quality Lucienne butane so I'm almost positive its not a problem with tane taste or underpurging. When I'm heat the back of the pad up and the previous oil marks vape off, that also smells strongly of the particular smell. The smell remains strong in the room a few minutes after a few dabs too, although sometimes the oil does taste sweet and weedy, the taste and smell I'm talking about is still a part of it and is released off when the pad is heated up before a hit and it varies between whether it was from darker oil or lighter oil. I didn't notice any weird colors or obvious impurities from potential worst case fertilizer/pesticide/chemical contaminated flowers, nor did the product sparkle/sizzle noticeably. So am I just inexperienced with the different range of tastes in BHO? I should note that this is my first known BHO experience, I tried dabs initially a little bit back at a friends and it the light greenish buddery material did have a similar interesting strong taste from recollection, but it was through a dirty smoked out of bong so the taste was already mixed with smoke so I can't properly rank that taste. I have read that the taste of good BHO can range greatly sometimes with what properly purged product will taste and smell like when vaped/smoked depending on the weed used, but I'm still unclear on if I'm fine or not.
