Hello everyone! First let me say thank you to the FC crew for having us; I have learned an enormous amount from this forum and its members and am honored to present you our product: http://www.liquidizer.com/ The Liquidizer Herb2Vapor Kit is an all-in-one package that includes everything necessary to safely, quickly and easily extract essential oils from your own raw herbs, creating an artisanal e-liquid that can be enjoyed anywhere with our mini-vaporizer. We believe in “oil for one and all,” safely and easily. Existing tube style extractors all needlessly endanger the user in a cloud of butane vapor. After extraction, creating a potent stable emulsion from the extract has been a problem. We provide the solutions, tools, liquids, techniques and detailed instructions that allow a smooth transformation from raw herbs to the ultimate e-liquid in as little as 15 minutes. Advantages/Features: Safety – The Liquidizer Butane Extractor was created to make butane extraction safe and easy for everyone. The Liquidizer keeps the user far from the butane vapors during all times they are present in the air. There is no reason you should risk horrific burns by standing next to an extraction tube in a cloud of butane vapor, waiting for a canister to empty. Even if done outdoors, one outlier event – the one time you are forgetful of safety and either a cell phone, or tiny static shock, or glint of sunlight ignites the vapor – is all it takes to permanently damage your life. That once inescapable danger of butane extraction, physical proximity to the butane, is now obsolete with the Liquidizer. Stand Alone Design - The Liquidizer has a patented, compact stand-alone design where the user moves the Liquidizer outdoors (extraction MUST ALWAYS be done outdoors) and with a squeeze of the clamp the user then immediately clears the area / returns indoors and allows 10 minutes for the butane to evaporate before returning to find the finest herbal extract. Artisanal Batches – The Liquidizer is designed around the use of 100ml butane canisters, which are safer to use than 300ml canisters (although 300ml canisters will also work). The 100ml butane canisters are smaller, lighter, evaporate away faster and still thoroughly extract sufficient herbal material for individual users. They allow for the Liquidizer’s compact size and even use from a window with a steel cable. We’ve found 1 gram of herbs to 10 ml of butane to be the ideal ratio, and typically we extract between 7g – 10g of top quality materials with a single can, or we’ll use two consecutive canisters for 20g at once. These manageable quantities are what allow the use of small amounts of transport alcohols that evaporate quickly and keep the process quick, safe and convenient. Quality – Thought and attention has been put into every detail. The butane leaves the canister, flows through our acetal nozzle and nitrile stopper (both materials with excellent butane compatibility). Our extraction tube, hose clamp and filter cloth are all made of stainless steel. Our stainless steel filter cloth is reusable and has a fine enough pore size to act as filter for wax particles during winterizing for advanced users (a process described in detail in our instructions). Technique, Tools & Liquids – We include the tools and instructions to make the difficult task of working with small liquid quantities easy and efficient. We use blunt tip syringes for the storage and transportation of extract liquids. We include an aluminum “boiler buddy” ring to keep your glass beaker at a tilt at all times while heating your mixtures, allowing liquids to easily pool and be drawn up. We describe the “Zero Waste Technique” of working with very small amounts (2 ml) of transport alcohol to ensure no residue is left behind. We fully describe “winterization” of herbal extracts, and how to use our beaker, extraction tube, and stainless steel cloth to filter away wax precipitate to create “Virgin Electric Juice.” EJmix – One of our proudest achievements is perfecting the formula for EJmix, a blend of PG and PEG 400 (as well as PEG300 and PEG200) for the ideal molecular weight and solubility for a permanent stable emulsion of natural herbal oils. Herbal oils and EJmix will never separate out. We recommend everyone begin with concentrated mixtures of 70:30 to 50:50 oil to EJmix blends to create one-hit knock-out punches of vapor, and only then progressively dilute according to their preferred method of use. EJvape & Infinite Wick – The EJvape & Infinite Wick are designed to be the simplest and smallest possible portable vaporizer. The EJvape uses a minicig battery and a hand customized clearomizer to create an exposed bare silica wick for direct dripping of Electric Juice. We find direct dripping concentrates to be the most efficient and most flavorful method of use. In our instructions we describe “vaping the spectrum” and how to ensure the oils are gently boiled and never burned. Once the flavor turns, we “blaze away” the heavy residue into the air by allowing the wick to glow red for a rapid auto-cleaning that restores its purity for the next drop. No more buildup of dark crud on the coils; every hit is as clean as the first. The incredibly long life of the bare wick is what merits the name Infinite Wick. It is the ultimate in portability: the battery, infinite wick, and dropper bottle all fit into the small pocket of your jeans. You have everything you need for discreet public use anywhere at all times. Benefits of Going Liquid – One of the goals of the Liquidizer is to move users away from solid/wax extracts and toward concentrated liquids. The most obvious benefit of such a transition is the convenience of using a dropper/syringe to dispense precise drops rather than toiling with scraping tools, rods and vials of dabbing. Further, during vaporization the EJmix moderates the temperate of the boiling extract to avoid rapid overheating and burning, guaranteeing the best in clean flavor. Additionally, going liquid allows for very rapid purging. The viscosity of natural extracts traps residual butane and requires prolonged heat/vacuum conditions for a full purge. Adding EJmix dramatically reduces the viscosity allowing the trapped gases to quickly and visibily bubble away in minutes. Even with an oil to EJmix ratio of 70:30, a smooth flowing liquid is maintained at room temperature with the equivalent potency of raw extract, but none of its inconvenience. Odorless Juice, Full Flavor – We have found that the true secret to creating full flavored juice with muted aromas for public use is to toast your herbal material before extraction. By “toasting” we mean a very mild process of 20 minutes exposure to low heat (220F) in the oven. This reduces any remaining moisture and more importantly boils away the volatile aromatic organic compounds which are what give herbs their signature “green” smell and taste. The color of the oil will darken and the yield from butane extraction will increase, but most importantly, the fierce aromas will be muted yet the flavors amplified for smooth and potent artisanal oil. The improved flavor that toasting imparts also means the Electric Juice in your dropper can be used orally with minimal bitterness and astringency. One or two drops under the tongue or in a drink will create a gradual yet highly satisfying herbal experience. This process works for tobacco, lavender, cloves, mint, hops, cinnamon, vanilla, and any other herbal material. The Liquidizer is strictly for use in extracting legal plant resins and oils, and we will ignore comments involving or referring to federally controlled chemicals. Please note that the oil content of herbs varies widely. Leafy materials contain fewer oils than flowers or buds. Butane extraction does work for tobacco; the yields are low but the aroma and flavors will be faithfully captured. Snus is particularly well suited for extraction. Also adding a few milliliters of alcohol to the extraction tube prior to using the butane, will add a touch of “dirty” flavors to your extract, if you so prefer. Whether you are a new user who has never heard of concentrates or an experienced veteran of extracting herbal essences, the Liquidizer has something to offer everyone. It is the missing link - if you’ve ever dreamt of all the possibilities ecigs have yet to offer, now there is a way to make your own liquids, granting you full freedom and total control over what you inhale.
