After STB extraction from 50g mimosa hostilis root bark, the amount was about 0.5g of oily stuff. After recrustallization the amount of pure dmt was 0.1g. This means only 20% survived the recrystallization.

Are these amounts normal?
From 50g mhrb to 0.5g oily?
From 0.5g oily to 0.1g pure?

Also, i foudn this thread:

That suggests that oily stuff is mostly DMT. So is there a point in recrystallization?
Because if most oily stuff is dmt, then it seems that good dmt was wasted.

Trippy glass for trippy people.

It depends, bark may not contain more than 1%, or you didn't do enough pulls, or used bad solvent and etc. You can't really say. Generally 1% is normal yield, but if it was too contaminated it may not be.

What you could do was vape a few milligrams and check the potency.

Never done re-x and can't say for sure but I guess that depends too. it's possible you used too much solvent..

My last extraction:

2.89 g oily
1.18 g pure (40% yield, recrystallized from heptane)
1.41 g residue (0.3 g loss)

The residue is still perfectly active and seems good for changa.
