Cold water extraction of codeine from ibuprofen and paracetamol. What am I doing wrong? by Alice Duckstone - Thu, 08 Nov 2018 14:20:22 EST ID:8NKAAdt7 No.602034 Ignore Report Quick Reply

So I crush about 10 nurofen and 4 cocodamols. First time I did it, I was careful. Dissolved them in cold water in a jug and let it stand. Poured them into a bottle and kept it in the freezer. Then filtered through a kitchen towel and it was perfect. Clear but slightly cloud, only mildly bitter and gave me a good buzz and little nausea. Today I did the same thing but am getting opposite results. It's extremely cloudy and tastes very strongly of ibuprofen. I'm not risking drinking it. Any ideas where I'm going wrong? I even repeated the process and triple filtered. How much water should I use? I used about 300-400ml. Was this enough? Should I use little or more? Any help or advice much appreciated.

I mean depending on the amount of APAP used might be risky but it doesnt look too bad.

If the total amount was 5000 or lower Id say youre good to go

It would've been about 2-3g. I've given up on it and put it in the fridge. See if it will turn out better tomorrow. Gonna have kratom tea instead tonight.

OMG that's WAAAAAY too much water man, what the fuck?

I'm pretty sure it's like 10mg/ml solubility for APAP. What is that, a fucking liter of water???

You legit should only use enough water to cover the crushed pills...

what a massive fuck up OP, lol.

I used a third of that amount to mix with pills. I only added more because I thought it was too cloudy and it was better to be safe.

Yeah no, adding water does the opposite. Pretty much all the APAP got through.

So I should add a lot less water next time? Thanks. These are really old pills anyway so I don't mind experimenting with them. I'll add only 100ml or less next time.

jolly african-american, what are you DOING

I thought no one could be dumb enough to fuck up a CWE I really did. You will be able to dissolve every single bit of codeine with only 50ml of cold water.
Where did you even get the idea to use this much water?

Why is pretty much everyone in this thread being an asshole? Yeah, made a mistake. Big fucking deal. We all do. Now I know what to do next time. Maybe you should try and chill the fuck out.

I used to use 50-100ml (200 at the outside for formulas with heaps of gluggy binders) for about 60-80 pills. If it was just the APAP I'd say take it anyway, but that's a lot of ibuprofen. If you really wanted you could evaporation off the water and start again.

Meh /opi/ is essentially a ragtag of berating monkeys at this point

I'll get my technique right. Just takes some practice. I read many tutorials and they differed in saying how much water to use. Some said to use a lot to not risk getting APAP in the water. I'll try with less water and see if it comes out clear. Thanks.

No worries. Keep in mind some brands/formulations will never come out clear even with minimum water due to soluble dies etc. How much goop is in your filter is a good indication. There are some bad guides for sure, more water will always mean more APAP. Crush or grind the pills beforehand too to speed things up.

There was a lot of APAP in the filter. About the equivalent of the amount of pills used.
