Salvia extraction - is my method ok?
    #3868066 - 03/04/05 03:48 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Hi there

Just wanted to check if this all looks okay, gonna be doing my first ever extraction next week with 162g of dry leaf.

-Do about 5 extractions on the 162g dry leaf with 99.9% isopropanol

-Combine extracts


-Clean extract gently with small amounts of IPA (very small so as not to lose too much salvinorin)

-Re-dissolve extract into around one litre of IPA. I figure that if IPA holds 0.74mg/ml of salvinorin-A, and salvia has an average salvinorin-A content of about 2.5 mg/g, a litre will easily be enough. It would theoretically be enough even if my salvia had, by some fluke of nature, a salvinorin content of 4.5mg/g.

-Add this solution to about 30g dry leaf.


This should give me about a 5x extract, right?

I'm not using acetone because finding reagent grade stuff proved impossible and I would rather not deal with dodgy residues if I can possibly help it.

If anyone can give me the go ahead I'd be grateful.
