Got extract but lost starting weight...

A friend of mine extracted a ton of leaves after the fall season a few years back. He did the typical Acetone extraction with Naptha and IPA washes. He has 3 vials of the light green powder. His problem... he has moved since then and lost his notes so he has no clue how many pounds were extracted.

Any clever idea's of how to figure potency?

Without knowing the starting mass of the materials, as well as the mass of the materials lost, and the final mass, it is impossible.

Crude extractions like that seem like a waste of time. You might as well consume raw leaf. You have to keep going and acquire crystals to know that you have a relatively pure chemical, or any isolated chemical at all.

I figured as much. The extraction was more for educational purposes than anything. Plus, what am I gonna do with a couple garbage bags full of foliage after a freak storm knocked it out? Experiment! :geek:

Guess I'll be going for the crystals.
