Possibly the best way to consume Cannabis
This is a great price for a great oil. Be aware, there are no terps in it so no smell or taste and it causes it to be very thick. I know Secret Garden says its 94% but that's a conservative claim. The Co2 process is closer to 99% these days. A true 2 hit product.
Some hints for use:
1. When you first use the syringe, remove the entire plastic cap assembly if you are going to be filling a vape. Keep the screw on cap to reseal but you can lose the screw collar. This leaves you with a eye dropper type spout.
A secondary reason to do this is that once the oil gets on the threads it can be hard to remove the cap from the collar even after warming. Also removing the screw collar may allow you to apply it directly to your dab rig.
2. It's thick. You will need to warm it or it won't budge. I see people suggesting warming it with water. THC hates water and it can cause it to spit on a dab rig. I prefer a hair drier. Don't worry about the syringe, it's made from a Pyrex type glass so it can take the heat.
3. Planning to vape this? If you are using the disposable carts, be sure they are ceramic coils. Wicks wont work. Buy the largest diameter feed hole. It can be thinned out using terpines but it takes some trial and error.
Also, used as is, it's best to warm up the coils for a few seconds at first or expect a lot of oil to just seep out of the air holes, particularly bottom feed air holes. If this is your rig, invert it while pre-warming the coils to prevent the same seepage. I recommend using a mod box capable of delivering 3.8 to 4.1v at 1.8ohms. Pen Vape batteries will waste a lot of product as they just don't get hot enough fast enough for pure distillates.
4. The closest comparison to old school concentrates would be honey oil, but this is much purer. As such, it is excellent for spreading on a paper with tobacco or weed.
5. Baking? Yes! Eating as is? Not really. Unlike other distillate methods, Co2 extraction does not decarb the oil as the process usually doesn't get warmer than room temp.
6. What a mess! So you had an accident and now your distillate is all over the table. Here's a secret that can recover your spillage. You will need 6 things: A synthetic fiber cloth like a J-cloth (natural fibers retain too much) , 90% or stronger Isopropyl alcohol, a kitchen funnel, a coffee filter and 2 clean jars.
Use the alcohol on the cloth to wipe up the mess. Now stuff the cloth into one of the jars. Pour more alcohol over the cloth until it is covered. Cap the jar and swish it around for 2 or 3 minutes. You can leave it as long as you want but 2 or 3 minutes should suspend most of the oil. Prepare the second jar by placing the funnel in the opening and the coffee filter in the funnel. Carefully pour the solution into the coffee filter, keeping the cloth in the original jar. A second wash of the cloth can be done if desired. Pour the filtered solution on to a flat bottomed glass baking dish. You should cover the dish with a splatter shield or similar item to avoid collecting airborne dust and allow it to evaporate overnight. Scrape the dish with a razor blade to recover your oil. If it is thinner than it was originally, wait longer for all the alcohol to evaporate before using or expect a hangover.
You can skip the filtration steps, however it will most likely end up with bits of cloth or dirt in it.
