97%, Impressive! If it is dry material that you decarbed, that is outstanding!
I just had some decarbed (252F, ~20min) QWET (190-proof Everclear) lab tested. I also use this for cookies (yes, I know) at the rate of 5-6 grams of hash to 1 cup Ghee. 1/2 cup of Ghee budder makes 35 small cookies. Dosage is 1-2 cookies. Three and I walk like I am drunk! I made this hash to put in caps. I think the bioavailability of just putting it in caps is not as good as mixing with coconut oil and then into caps.
yeah the skunk pharm oil bath, I did this method and I'm still finding that I don't get high even though I"m consuming the equivalent of 1.5 grams of bud in one capsule. dunno what's going on, I've tried lecithin, ghee, coconut oil, etc. not sure, I've been super high on edibles before so I"m not sure why it isn't working now when I have literally all the tools I need to get this going. hmm.
yes material was dry. thanks for the complement
How are you doing what you are doing?
A quote from the Cannabutter for Dummies thread.
I love this.
"There was one time I put in 4 ounces to 4 sticks of butter; after was strained returned it to the crock pot tossed in another half stick butter and ADDED in 11 grams of bubble hash, waited 5 hours then unlike the first time, no straining, put in the freezer until solid and when removed from the water the hash stuck to the bottom of the butter. 3/6 people that tried that butter will never eat cannafood again. Long time medical patients too =/. Put it all on the double boiler mixed it up with a couple bars of hersheys chocolate and handed him a spoonful, he ate half of that spoonful.....That was the first time I had to sit and pray with a grown man and his wife, for 4 hours, I felt very very bad...Be careful....it can be traumatizing. - Friendly J"
QWET extraction of 15.5 grams of dank herb concentrated into 2 teaspoons of coconut oil. heated at 250 until CO2 bubbles tapered off.
I followed skunk pharms frozen QWET extraction, the result of the first run was what I used. not sure if its as potent as it should be? it looked like pristine amber/orange oil. maybe I wasn't extracting as much in the first run as I suspected?
Is that about 1:1 (Oil to Oil), If so, that should have worked. I'll ask someone that makes these all the time and see what he has to say. It will be a couple of days
well after the alcohol was evaporated it was probably not a 1:1 ratio, probably more like 4:1 or something like that.
4:1 what to what? My friend says he likes the strength of 1:1 and that it is a strong dose.
hey man it was great to meet you yesterday. i decided to do sum math to compare our views on dosage/strength. im curious on your iso/bho yield. i based my numbers on 15% return on a bho run. if we did a bho run with our material prior to a butter infusion and i got my typical 15-18% return, our products would contain over 28grams of bho per cup of butter or +7grams per stick if i infused the bho into butter.
Has anyone on this board tried adding honey oil to already made cannabutter?
it will work fine, heat slowly and watch for saturation.
Hey man, I have a couple questions for ya. . .can you pm me?
This is after you decarb correct?
What brought you to that temp? I go about 250F for 12 hr but without knowing the exact temp THC binds to fat molecules i'm flying blind.
Also any reason you stir every 5 min as opposed to an hour?
The decarb takes place during the infusion so no we do not decarb prior. I stir so frequently to break off and or saturate as many tricombs as possible. Kinda like agitating bubble hash was my thought process. I also think it really helps speed up the entire process.
according to skunk pharm, what that is doing is removing the boundry layer between saturated cannabinoid material and unsaturated material definitely a very good practice to get into as an oil maker!!!
btw I achieved 100% activation (lab tested) with 0 CBN detected... used 240-250F following the decarboxylization scale, watching the bubble formation until it tapered off (which occures in sync with the decarboxylization graphs there was also no THC-A detected.
Wow 95% transformation with only 230F max for 90 min....
Meaning the multi hour one that is titrating the temperature up and down? The one I cant find online to link to at this moment lol.
here you go
