How to Scrape a Pipe

We've all been there, out of bud and desperate for a hit. We've all stooped to the same lows; scouring the house for weed, smoking the stems, and scraping the pipe. None of these methods is very satisfying, and worse yet they are all a pain in the ass.

Scraping your pipe is the worst of the desperate options a stoner has. I have learned from personal experience that this can oftentimes end very poorly. Three of my pipes have been broken during resin collecting accidents, and considering how much a glass pipe can cost, this can be very disappointing.

Odds are, you're still planning to scrape your pipe, but before you do, let me say this; DON"T DO IT MAN! ARE YOU FUCKING CRAZY?! No, seriously, don't do it, I have a much better alternative.

What You Need: -A glass jar large enough so that your pipe will fit inside
-Something to cover the jar
-A full supply for 99% isopropyl alcohol (Don't opt for the cheep/weak stuff, it will fail you)
-Another jar
-Some paper coffee filters
-A glass bowl (if it isn't glass or ceramic don't go there)

Ok, now if you have any inclination to use anything other than glass for your jar and bowl, don't. The process that you will be doing will not work well with plastics (and it could be harmful to your health).
What You Do
  1. Put your pipe in the jar
  2. Pour alcohol into the jar until your pipe is fully submerged
  3. Put a lid over the jar and let it sit for at least a day
At this point you are probably thinking that I'm just fucking with you, but fear not, for the Guru doesn't do that kind of shit. I'm your friend remember.

Now that you have given your pipe a day to soak, the alcohol should look and smell pretty gross. This is good. Go ahead and pull your pipe out of the alcohol and rinse it off. Now don't get rid of the alcohol because you aren't done with it yet. As you will see, when your rinse your pipe out, the end result will be a practically new looking pipe. This is because alcohol is a strong solvent and a damn good cleanser.

Here is the best part, getting back all of that THC that was stuck to the inside of your pipe. If you don't know it already, THC is absorbed by alcohol and other solvents, so the THC that was in your pipe, is now in the alcohol.

Now, do you remember the bowl, coffee filters, and the other jar I told you to get? Of course not, you're probably stoned, that's ok, I don't frown on that, but you should probably read go get those things if you haven't already.

Go ahead and secure a coffee filter in your empty jar with a rubber band or some tape. Now slowly pour the alcohol that you used to clean your pipe through the coffee filter and into the other jar. This will ensure that the bits of soot and what not will be filtered out of the alcohol. After that, pour the now filtered alcohol into your bowl. Have you done all that? Good.

Now just go ahead and leave your bowl of alcohol in your garage or outside (away from the weather) and let it sit. Check back on it now and then, but it should be evaporating. On a hot day in the sun, it should evaporate within a day or two, otherwise a week or so. DO NOT BE IMPATIENT! DO NOT, AND I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH, DO NOT USE A HEAT SOURCE TO INDUCE EVAPORATION, YOU COULD BLOW YOURSELF UP. I said it, that's your one warning, if you burn your house down doing this, it won't be my fault because I told you not to do it.

Once all of the alcohol ( and I do mean all so don't be impatient) has evaporated you should be left with a black goo. It will be very sticky, and have the consistency of toffee. This is hash, use a razor blade and scrape up every last bit. Use it sparingly, it will get you plenty stoned with even the smallest quantity.

Enjoy!

    1. Okay smartypants it's not 'your' it is 'you're.'
      Secondly dude, shut the fuck up.

      Not everyone is a ganja guru. I highly doubt you accumulated all the knowledge you have gained about weed upon taking your first hit.

    2. He was actually right with "your". "You're" is short for you are. "Your" shows possession.

    3. Wrong. "You're" is correct. "You're" is "you are" which would be the correct statement. "So you are basically making oil." "Oh ya if you are too stupid..." He also misused "to" and "too".

    4. Wrong. It would be "Oh ya if you are too stupid to figure out...". Dumb cunt. Jesus fucking Christ you're an idiot. Go kill yourself, you fucking disgrace little bitch.

  2. Its oil, its low grade, however its much cleaner smoking than a ball of resin. Also, you would be pretty surprised how many people visit my site because they were searching the phrase "how to scrape a pipe." Everybody has to learn somehow.

You know that smell of achohol, well, the resin ALSO tastes, and kinda smells like it. I was retardly stoned, But left a retched taste in my mouth... Any other Methods?

    1. HAHA, you and me used to think the same while we were stoned. You probably don't anymore, because your comment was three years ago. I ALWAYS come up with random names when I'm baked.

  6. Looks good, but you should add "rubber band or tape" to your list of required items rather than requiring it half way through the process.

    I also found a couple of typos, but I won't point them out here.

  8. Hey, does that work for metal pipes as well?
    I mean, it couldn't be too bad, right? Because alcohol cleans metal, too. Could I soak a metal pipe in it?

    ReplyDelete
  9. I would be cautious with a metal pipe, you might get something nasty in your hash. In general I would not smoke out of a metal pipe period.

  10. How about 95% everclear? Can't find any 99% isopropyl but I have a bottle of everclear lying around.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Is there a better solvent to use that rubbing alcohol? I feel like THC is pretty hydrophobic, so don't you think using something like benzene or hexane work better?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Uh, that isn't hash.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Does this process really works on glass pipes? However, it is quite a long process. Isn't there any way to make it a bit faster?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Will this work on a metal pipe?

    ReplyDelete
  15. my buddy attempted this and it worked great! but i think maybe when evaporating it a bowl with a smaller surface area is the best way to go.
    wow... that took me like ten minutes to write haha

    ReplyDelete
  16. Will this work with 70% Isopropyl ?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes but youll be left with some water in it afterward. And its not called hash! It would be hashish and there is a faster way to do it. Just fill your pipe with the rubbing/isopropyl(or however its spelled) shake it a bunch, dump it and do it again like 2-4 times and put all of the resin/alcohol mix on a glass plate and light it on fire. The alcohol will dissolve. But dont burn your resin or let it get too hot. You will be left with some water(unless you use 99%). Just let it dry in the sun or(if impatient) with a microwave(not recomended) or use your hands to soak up the water. Dont lose any resin tho ;)

  17. This process sounds like it would be worth trying but the whole point of scraping is that it is an opportunity to get high more or less immediately. By the time this process has finished it could be possible to procure more weed.

    1. Yes but hash is the ultimate THC experience. Trust me.. Hash is well worth the time and effort. 1 gram can have you higher than a fucking kite. Preferably smoked through a bong.

      Delete
    2. Thats not hash! Its still resin or hashish. Big difference, hash is gathered from actual bud or leaves. Usually involving ice and water in a bucket with a bunch of weed. Tho there is different ways of gathering it. In my opinion, hash is the best form of weed. The most potent lol

  18. I'm in the process of doing this right now and I'm wondering of you are just fucking with us or if this really works

    1. It would work. Though there is other ways involving similiar materials

  19. Where can one go about buying 99% isopropyl alcohol? i've called all the local pharmacies, walmart,etc... and the highest they carry is 91%. Also, will 91% produce the same result? I'm very eager to put this article to use =]

    ReplyDelete
  20. This is the same method that you would use to turn your trimmings and shake into oil. Instead of putting your pipe in the alcohol put the trimmings and shake in it, let it sit for a couple of days shaking every once in a while. Then filter and evaporate same as above. I used to boil it on a hotplate outside (DO NOT do it inside as the possibility of your house exploding is very high).
    And yes you can use metal pipes or bowls the same way, alcohol does not eat metal.

  21. Scraping a pipe more less should be the smokers choice aka what there more comfortable with but I found the boiling of a glass pipe and using a filter and a flat surface to dry it on after is the best option for me works better then using anything on or in your pipe.THC like any other plant is sensitive to chemical reactions. And using a Metal Bowl I just wouldn't for many reasons.

    1. Just means extremely low quality pot was smoked.

  25. you can greatly speed up this process by boiling a pot of water and putting your bowl full of iso over it. use an electric burner and WAY less chance of explosion. the taste will linger for a while but if it sits overnight it should be pretty much gone but its resin its not really gonna taste all that great to begin with, and no 70 percent wont work bits 30 percent water wich kills THC and unfortunatly YES you will always have to scrape the bowl you did it in

    ReplyDelete
  26. THIS WORKS FOR SPICE AS WELL.
    If you scrape your pipe and smoke that or if you soak it into 99 percent alcohol it's exactly the same. Active ingredients (whatever they are) are pulled into the alcohol in exactly the same method and may be harvested again in exactly this same way. Potent result. Might never scrape again. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Haha if you niggas think that you have enough resin to make hash then you probably wouldn!t need to be scraping to get a hit. If you got anything to scrape in your piece and you want a quick hit, then just hit it from your piece. Don't pack anything and light it deep. Let me know how well this works for you, a little feed back. =]
    Ps: ....A little fucked up right now....

  29. What if my bowl / pipe is acrylic?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Just light it on fire. I've literally done this so many times, and I didn't learn it off this site. Instead of a big ass fucking jar, put your pipe in a plastic baggie, you won't need to use as much alcohol since your pipe will be laying down rather than standing straight up in a jar. Now, put the alcohol in there, 97-99% will do fine, let it sit! Doesn't take a night like this Guru is telling you, takes probably about two hours. Now here is the dangerous part, GO OUTSIDE WHEN DOING THIS, DO NOT DO IT INSIDE, STUPID, pour that shit out of the bag and on too a larger sized plate if you have one, if not, it might take a few pour. On a ceramic plate of course, pour that shit on there and get it nice and on there, NOW BE CAUTIOUS, and you need to light that shit on fire. The flame is going to be MASSIVE so do it OUTSIDE in an OPEN space. It'll probably burn for about 3-10 minutes or some shit, than when it's done it's done it's ready to be scraped off the plate! Repeat the process until your bag is empty.
