I had promised to make an extraction tek on here quite a while ago but never got around to it because I'm lazy as fuck. Figured I'd post this as it's a good tek and is pretty much exactly what I do with a few minor differences:


Credit goes to u/unclejeev on circlejerk for making this.

Some notes I would like to add though:

-You don't need to use caustic soda/lye, any base stronger than baking soda will work fine. I use washing soda, or sodium carbonate. It's cheap, non-toxic and safer to use and isn't a watched compound anywhere. You can get more than you'll ever need for like $4 at Wal-Mart.

-If you plan to store it for long periods of time, converting it from its freebase form to a salt form is necessary as the freebase degrades slowly over time. You can do this by reacting it with an acid fairly easily. For instance, if you have some distilled white vinegar, just dissolve the DXM freebase in that and then set it out to evaporate. This will yield DXM acetate.

-DXM freebase takes a long time to kick in, for me its always 3 hours before I feel effects. Keep this in mind when dosing, don't redose thinking it won't kick in. Converting it to a salt form should fix this issue.

-Be careful inhaling naphtha fumes, it contains benzene and is mildly carcinogenic.

Enjoy! It's a really fun extraction tek, and if you evaporate slowly you can grow some beautiful DXM crystals.

Oh and before anyone asks, no you can't smoke it, it's rather dangerous to do so. Stick to oral, all the other ROA's aren't very effective or are really uncomfortable.

thanks for the tek! In addition to not smoking it, dxm should not be snorted either. The most effective roa should be oral, as you said. I thought it was cool how when it separates, you work with the top layer; unlike with a dxm poli cwe extraction, you work with the bottom layer.

If it takes longer to come up on it, do you notice if the effects also seem to last longer than regular dxm hbr syrup/gels? Do the effects seem stronger?

Can this work with any product that is only DXM hbr or just syrups? I would expect attempting these directions exactly may have a different outcome if done to gels; I'd suggest poking holes in them first. I want to try doing this on Robocough. I just need NaOH, Ph paper, and maybe naphtha. pic is product of a dxm poli cwe from my past.

It'll work fine for any product that contains only DXM and it will also remove Guafinessin (it'll form a layer of guaif sometimes but it's easy to separate). If there are any other active ingredients they will remain in the final product.

I did try it with cough gels once though and I ran into issues, produced a layer of gelatin like emulsions and I never could get it to separate. I used a bunch of different random bottles of DXM cough syrup though so I have no idea if the cough gels were the issue or not. But yeah if you want to extract from cough gels you need to get the liquid out of the gels and extract that. I have no clue if the actual gel capsule is soluble in naphtha or not, wouldn't be hard to figure out though.

The effects are more or less the same as HBr with a delayed onset in my experience.

Shit, that last sentence was in reply to >>366893


Also I'd say just get some washing soda/sodium carbonate and use that as the base, it's cheaper, safer, and lye is a watched compound in the US which might be an issue if you decide to do this often. Never used lye for DXM extraction, the yields are fine and there's no real need to use such a strong base.

You can also wash the tussin prior to adding the caustic soda by adding some naptha to the jar, shaking vigorously and then separating the tussin solution and the solvent the same was as in the tek. I have seen teks online suggest that this would remove anything that may end up in the final product. IDK if it is necessary if your syrup only has dxm, but it does remove the guafinessin. Another poster stated that it does separate as a layer. I have also seen some cheapo store brand syrup that has some emulsion layer that just never separates from you naptha layer.

There isn't much need to do that to remove Guaifinessin as it's already insoluble in naphtha after basifying the solution. That said though there is a bit of Menthol in a lot of syrups so doing what you just described will remove it so it's worth bringing up.

I saw this tek on circlejerk too. It seems pretty straightforward but I had a question:

When you add the 50ml of solvent, is that amount dependent on how much product you currently have in the jar? Or does it not really matter that much? Should I put more/less depending on how much initial DXM Hbr I put into this?
Lillian Lightgold - Wed, 12 Jun 2019 13:13:29 EST huE+DZZ+ No.366981 Reply

It doesn't really matter that much, I just eyeball it but 50ml is probably about all you'll need. I tend to get pretty much everything with a single pull so DXM freebase seems to be very soluble in naphtha.

Thanks. Another question; for testing the pH would the strips that you get at pet shops to test your fish tank work? Or are they not as accurate. I know the obvious answer is to buy off Amazon but I'm trying to avoid that.
William Hoddlelock - Thu, 13 Jun 2019 15:59:15 EST huE+DZZ+ No.366992 Reply

No problem! I have no idea, I think some pH strips have a limited range, no clue if the brands sold at pet shops are like that or not. The ones I have go from 1-14, if it's any less than that then it's probably not going to be as useful. Ebay has them if you don't want to order off Amazon.

You could also get away with not testing the pH, when I first got started I didn't bother and I never had any huge issues. It's better to use them, though.

I was thinking about getting the pH strips from a hot tub store if there is one nearby. pH strips for aquariums should be accurate enough too. Another place to check can be stores like home depot or lowes or ace.

Gave this a trial run with a few bottles of robocough; the expected yield was 3000 but i fucked up at the bag part and wasted a lot so i only got maybe a g. Still it was a success and ive got the supplies on hand to do it more. I havemt tried the dxm and wont be able to for a few days so im just gonna let it dry more. Ill come back to this thread to let you guys know how it goes

Bump, Waiting on the outcome of this.

Seems kind of like a waste of Robocough to me, since that shit is literally designed to go down as easy as possible.

Pics are golden when it comes to this stuff.

Robocoughs disgusting, honestly. You don’t have to drink much but it makes me fucking gag like crazy. I drank some with 3 friends and my girlfriend and 3/5 of us puked. Nobody exceeded one and a half bottles

My friend E and my friend N did but only N threw up. Me and my friend A did too in the order we drank it. It was a nightmare until 2 hours in lmao. Its mostly the taste that does it to me.
Anyway my first batch is slightly colored so im a bit scared of it. Just made a new batch though and it should be around 420(eheheheh) mgs. Pure white and grainy. I’m gonna take it with charcoal on and to test it out, then ive got a few friends that seem interested in it. The supplies (naptha, lye, ph strips, blah blah) cost me about 35$ and will last me probably 5 batches if not more. As for the dxm itself, a 24 pack of robocough (10,800 mgs total) is about 50$. In the end, 80-90$ for about 20 average doses of pure, not disgusting powder. My friends have been offering me 40$ for 1000 mgs as well so id make it back too.

Tl;dr this is a really good process and I’ll update yall once i get the naptha evaporated and have a good time to take it.

It ended up being 250mgs (there was some spillage but i didnt think it was that bad). So i mixed it with cranberry juice and slowly downed it over 10 mins. The taste still wasn’t great so I guess some of the bad taste in cough syrup is the dxm itself. Either way this is better than anything else. Just a few gulps of slightly more bitter cranberry juice.
So I came up over the next hour while smoking weed and it felt kinda like ketamine in the sense that it was pure dissociation without some nasty process or nasty liquid in my guts. I have a fair tolerance so 250 mgs normally wouldn’t have gotten me as high as i did with the powder. I was at a reasonable 2nd plat and it was pretty comfortable. I had charcoal pills with me incase i fucked up but they never left the bottle. So this was a success for sure. To whoever op is: fucking thank you my man

I think they make you throw up and help get all the nasty shit you're trying to throw up out of you

Basically incase i poisoned myself, which I didn’t do, fortunately. Im doing one more extraction and taking it with acid tonight so wish me luck guys.

i'm pretty sure it just absorbs shit, i don't think throwing up is involved, they use it in hospitals all the time

Eating charcoal capsules sometime before alcohol intake prevented any hangover effects for me. Reading online revealed to me that it adsorbs impurities in alcohol.

Im legit the guy who make this circlejerk guide and just came to this board to ask if anyone knew how to turn freebase into a salt as I failed make DXM Hcl. I thought I was tripping when I saw a pic I took already on here haha.

They actually don't use charcoal that often anymore. It's only useful up to a point and in pills it would basically useless. You need to take a fair amount of the shit and mix it into water and then drink the nasty fuckin sludge. That's how activated charcoal works, and it only works if it's taken within a small window of time. Otherwise the stomach empties itself or absorbs all of the shit already.

If you're the author of the guide I have a question.
You say pH strips aren't completely necessary, so if I don't use them (and say for instance I'm using OP's method of using Washing soda instead of lye), how will I know when it's basic?
Walter Lightfuck - Mon, 29 Jul 2019 07:49:34 EST 1iK52Ukw No.367649 Reply
To add to that, if I add a bit of the solution to vinegar, and it reacts then it's alkaline (basic), right? So would that work as an alternative test?

Big thanks for the guide. Especially nice to see something local. It's always a pain trying to translate foreign products to the local equivalent.

I used sodium carbonate instead of the lye. I was also extracting the DXM from six bottles of Robocough. When doing the separation I got this gunky third layer between the Robocough and the naphtha. Had to wait for all of that to drain out and some of the naphtha would go with it. So of a maximum 2079mg I only got 1435mg.

Anyone else able to post the yields they're getting from this?
Anyone know what that gunky stuff might've been?

Sorry for the late reply, keep adding your base slowly until your solution goes really cloudy all of a sudden. This is the dxm freebase crashing out.

That's called an emulsion, its a pretty common issue when people are doing dmt extractions so i'd have a look on the dmt nexus for ways to deal with an emulsion.
