Coldfinger?
    #2923509 - 07/24/04 01:56 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Hello out there,
I'm just getting turned on to the idea of increasing the potency of various herbs so I'd like to know...
Is there a FAQ about extraction for the extreme newbie?
Is the Coldfinger Extractor worth the money?
Any other advice is greatly appreciated!

There's some posts about different extractions, including a very good Salvia extraction thread alive at this very moment on the front page of EG.

I made 2 posts outlining the basics of A/B extractions and Recrystallization, pretty much as good as a college orgo lab manual IMHO ;-).

>>Is the Coldfinger Extractor worth the money?

No in my opinion, for the newbie steam distillation is enough, and for the not so newbie then buying a soxhlet apparatus is sometimes cheaper and workds better.

Speaking of steam distillation, here is a simple foolproof little trick. Get yourself an expresso maker and run your herb through it. It will bring over stuff that isn't normally soluable in water or only slightly soluable. It only takes a few minutes and you can do two passes to get it all out.
