Salvia Extraction Questions!
    #3694491 - 01/28/05 07:23 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Hellllllo,

I have a couple of questions I was hoping you guys could help me out with.

How do you make Salvia extract from dried leaves?

How much of the weight (if any) is lost in the extraction process?

For example if I put an ounce of leaves in, how much extract will I get out?

Thanks!

See http://www.erowid.org/plants/salvia/salvia_extraction4.shtml and http://www.erowid.org/plants/salvia/salvia_extraction1.shtml for good extraction guides.

If done properly, very little should be lost.

Good luck :sun:

Thanks so much for the links! I have a further question though, in the link below it talks about the amount of salvia leaves to use in order to get the certain concentration. (5x=20g, 10x=10g, 15x=6.5g, 20x=5g)

This seems counterintuitive to me. Can you explain this to me? Thanks!

Ah, alright confused me there for a second too. That extraction tek assumes you are starting with 100 grams of dried Salvia leaf. Then he says that 5x=20g. He's saying that for the end product (in this tek you extract the salvinorin into acetone, and then soak a certain quantity of regular unused leaves in the acetone while it evaporates, leaving the salvinorin in these leaves), you would need 20g of unused leaf to absorb the salvinorin from the 100g, leaving the 20g 5 times stronger than normal. Ok this seems a little confusing so let me try to explain it better.

You have 100g originally. You take out the goodies, and put them onto unused leaf, and then you smoke this end leaf product. If you use 20g here, then (since 100/20=5) you are left with 5x. If you use 5 grams of unused leaf, then (since 100/5=20), you would have 20x strength. Theoretically you could use only one gram and be left with 100x leaf, but I don't think the leaf can absorb that much.

If this still confuses you (hell I'm confusing myself just writing this), then just lemme know and I'll try to come up with a better explanation.
