Open Blast VS Closed Column

Recommended Posts


lets say I've been making BHO for my personal stash for years, and had previously been using an open ended glass blast tube, but I recently got  a tiny little closed column extractor to see how it works. What are the differences in using a CC setup as opposed to an open blast setup? Haven't had a chance to use it yet so I figured I better get an idea before I theoretically start... not sure why I'm being theoretical, but oh well lol... Any tips, tricks, etc are appreciated. 

            Growers Love,



PS I know I'll need to pull a Vac in the tube, I got that covered. Thanks, all!

I can not recommend techniques for BHO because the use of gas makes it really dangerous. However, have you tried rossin? it is a form of extraction by means of pressure and heat, 100% pure, 100 free of dangers.

Just to add to Jose.gh's comment- I gotta agree %100... Recently JUST switched to using a press (nugsmasher) from the Open Glass Blast Tube, for my extraction needs. The taste is by far, hands down, without a doubt, MUCH BETTER, When using the nugsmasher compared to Butane.

Nugsmashers are available in a few different sizes & I believe each different unit has its own options as far as settings & controls...(amount of pressure used, temperature settings, Etc etc...) & I think I read it somewhere, that some folks were able to pinpoint almost the exact temps & pressures needed to maximize extraction yields, based on the strain... & Besides the taste & The High, I'd say one of the bigger benefits from a pressed product compared to a butane blasted product, is the money you'll $AVE, NOT HAVING TO BUY SO MUCH BUTANE.

*Oh, and there's no extra wait time with a press, to purge the butane, or whatever solvent is used when blast extracting...
