I am about to make my first very small batch of RSO and I have read that some people freeze their bud and alcohol when soaking.  Why do this?  Is this to remove the chlorophill?  Or is there some other benefit to doing it? 

Thanks!

If it is about removing chlorophil my understanding is it can be a good thing so maybe I'll skip it.  But if it helps with extracting more medicine then it's worth doing...

What sort of test are you doing?

It was thought that removing the cloraphil it would reduce the irritation that big doses of oil taken to healcause I don't know if it worked I have not tested it yet it wasn't done to increase potency only to make it more friendly to my gut.You may not have a problem with cloraphil at all but I was up to one and 1/2grams a day.the nno doesn't bother me it must be the coconut oil. ill have some numbers next week on the oil. all the best bob

a froozen tricom stock is easier to snap off the bud than one @ room temp.

freezing or winterizing an oil during an extraction doesnt remove chlorophyll.

 

the temperatures and wash times limit the amount of chlorophyll picked up during the wash.

 

but freezing the washed solution removes plant waxes.  Plant waxes dissolve in the solvent but then precipitate out in very cold temperatures.... kinda of like diesel fuel that gels at super cold temperatures.  so the freezing step is one in which you can clean up and refine your oil

 

making oil is an art and takes practice.... good luck
