Cold Water Extraction
The Cold Water Extraction process, also called CWE for short, is a widely used health improving practice that can be applied to any medication (mostly painkillers) that contains opioids, like codeine, mixed with a light pain reliever like paracetamol or aspirin (which heavily damage your body in higher quantities), with the goal of extracting the opiate and discarding all the other harmful substances.
Cold Water Extraction is Used Medically and Recreationally
Cold water extraction is used by both medical and recreational users, the first being people that want to protect themselves from these very taxing substances (especially for your liver) or that while having liver problems still have to safely take the medication and the latter being people who want to enjoy the effects and sensations that opiates provide in a much safer way, purely for personal enjoyment.
Cold Water Works Wonders
Cold water is the reason behind the process working incredibly well because:
As such, by crushing the tablets into a fine powder, mixing them in water and then cooling the solution, you can easily separate the unwanted substances which stay solid and sink to the bottom while the opiates stay dissolved in the water. Then, by using any sort of screen, like a coffee filter, you can pour the water solution into it, quickly discard the solid residue and drink the final water solution which contains only the opiate and a few other harmless substances.
Cold Water Extraction Is Legal
Performing a cold water extraction is absolutely legal.
The tablets you choose to apply a cold water extraction on always contain an opioid substance that, depending on where you live, may have a different schedule than the unchanged tablets themselves. For example, tylenol 3 is rated schedule 3 or 5 but the opioid that it contains, codeine, is a schedule 2 drug.
This schedule difference only applies if you have a pure opioid substance, which doesn’t happen with cold water extraction (although it can come close, depending on how well you perform and filter it). Furthermore, the end solution of a cold water extraction is the opioid mixed in water, not in tablets or powder form.
There is absolutely no reason to worry about the legality of CWE, it being a process even taught in college level chemistry classes as a standard technique in quantitative chemistry (it is part of the educational curriculum).
Our Opinion on CWE
As long time users and consequently experts on cold water extraction, we think it’s an extremely healthy practice that everyone should start doing – no matter the reason (medical, recreation, prevention). It can prove extremely hard or even impossible to get prescribed an opioid, like Codeine, without any added substances especially outside of the United States. Most patients get prescribed painkillers that contain the toxic substances mentioned before and while we understand that pharmaceutical companies do this to either lower the drug’s schedule or to prevent people from abusing the medication, it doesn’t make it any less vile to put people in harm’s way for that reason alone. Many of the cases of hospitalization (and death) related to this type of prescription drugs are from people who, without knowing the dangers of paracetamol, take a higher dose than the recommended and overdose on it – leading to heavy liver damage.
All we want is to prevent this issue, which is possible by performing a simple cold water extraction before taking medication that falls in this category. The simplicity, speed and effectiveness of CWE makes it the very best solution to this problem, all that’s needed is for people to get introduced to it (as most painkiller users don’t know about the method)
