Isomerizer

Recently I have been searching for an isomerizer machine and you may be thinking what in the world is an isomerizer?

It is used to extract oils out of plants, using the plant material and grain alcohol.
This machine can save you a lot of time and effort in creating as close to pure cannabis oils as possible, without as many of the safety concerns in dealing with alcohol fumes.

Simple to use, 100% isopropyl alchohol is placed in the machine and will flow through the plant material to leach out the vital oils. Then the alcohol is evaporated by the thermostatically controlled heating element.
Aluminum fins, located in the top of the device condense the alchohol which will then flow back through the plant material.
It works similar to a coffee maker.
After that, the plant material is removed and the reclamation cup is put in place to collect the alchohol, which leaves you with the vital oils reclaimed in the bottom of the stainless steel unit.

It can extract plant oils out of almost any plant you can think of and because of that it has many uses.

It can be used to create:

  • Holistic Medicines and Ointments

  • Organic Soaps

  • Scented Candles

  • Bath Oils

  • Natural Organic Dyes

  • Perfumes

  • Mosquito repellent

  •  The idea of isomerization was introduced in a slim booklet, CANNABIS ALCHEMY by David Gold, published in 1973.

    Thai Power, Inc. created and produced an isomerizer in 1975 for $275.00, then in 1976, they introduced a new model called ISO2 for $159.00.
    Other companies produced imitation isomerizers called Maximer for $29.95 and another one called Kik for $69.95 soon after that.
    Even though they were expensive for that time, it was estimated that 20,000 had been bought.
    By 1982, isomerizer ads and isomerizer imitators had all but disappeared, due to introduction of anti-paraphernalia laws.

    Now, you can go on Ebay and purchase an original circa 1970's isomerizer, but you better be willing to shell out the dough. The 4 I have seen are $449.99, $499.99, $1250.00 and $1420.00, pretty steep for a used machine that is over 30 years old.
    A definite NO. If I am going to spend at least $400.00, I am going to get a new machine, not someone's 30 year old worn out piece of junk.

    And I found it. Super Flower Tower, the company's name, has created an isomerizer called Super Flower Tower and it is $499.00.

    So now I just have to come up with the 500 dollars.

      1. That is cool, Paul.
        You have a good friend to give you that machine.
        The units I looked at when I created this post were not in good shape and they still were asking more than a thousand for them.
        For a working unit, of that age- you are right- it is a good machine, but the ones I saw at that time, were not well treated.
        Your friend knows how to treat machinery. I wish that so much stuff wasn't treated as if it were throwaway trash.
        Would you mind answering a question?
        How much does material does the extraction basket hold?
        I am only curious, mine holds about 2 cups finely processed material. It would be nice to be able to process more material at a time.
        Thanks for looking at my blog!
        I hope to hear from you.

      6. The manual may be incorrect, I would say a 3 or four ounces at the max,whatever you can fit into the basket!

    7. I had the original Thai Power Isomerizer back in '76, a serious piece of extraction equipment. Here's the whole story by the designer and author of Cannabis Alchemy, David Hoye (D Gold.) Pictures of the original are at post #22. https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=332963

    8. The development of high CBD marijuana should continue to help completely remove the stigma from its medical use.
      Vaporizing involves heating marijuana to a point where it produces a vapor, then inhaling the vapor into the lungs.

    10. But when I recently read a news story about people having to choose between gas and food I did some research and came up with a more extensive list of gas saving and money saving tips.
      There are also some department and grocery stores that offer discounts at the pump when you use their store membership cards.
