Fasfill is a cheap 5x that I found was the same quality as Vector and a couple dollars cheaper by the case on ebay.
12- 10 oz cans were about $50 shipped and thats enough for a lot of oil.
I think that ear wax, budder, gold flake or whatever is all good, but it is important to focus on making bho. Given that bho needs to made safely, thats what I would focus on, because it is easy to make it safely. Purging it of butane after making bho isn't hard, just give it 100 degrees for 24 hours or let it sit in a sunny window for a few days.
It seems that the quality of the bud that goes into the butane is the the strongest factor determining quality of the end product. But, even a dark purged bho will rock your socks off. I find that bho purged of butane to last a lot longer than the bud that went into it and have a cleaner high. Also, I find the effects are more heady, making the bho seem more sativa leaning in its high than than the bud it came from.
This could be very good for some patients, but I find it very hard to sleep after smoking oils. But, I have mostly made oils out of sativa dominant or 50/50 indica sativa strains so far.
It is important to know that some strains and strains that having been curing for a long time sometimes cannot be made into ear war and they naturally come out a darker color and cannot be whipped up into anything else.
I would like to say, BE SAFE
Butane is very dangerous and lots of people have died or gotten burned alive from being stupid.
If you can't work safely outside, make iso or quick wash iso hash, its much safer. It doesn't taste as good, but its much cheaper, safer, and easier to make. But, the high is pretty much the same, so qwiso is very very good too.
