Some of the beneficial elements of cannabis are destroyed at 246F. So it's important to keep temperatures below that during decarboxylation.Eating decarboxylated hemp is pretty cool. 1.5 grams gets me going. I am experimenting with decarboxylation in terms of temperature and time.
The high temperature i have used is 250F for 30 mins. Next, im going to try 280F for 60 mins.
Anyone offer input, please do
Wow, that's a lot of CBD! 2 grams of isolate is 2000mg - about 100 times more than I consume daily. Your liver must've been working overtime to metabolize that much CBD - comparable to drinking a couple kegs when a six pack would suffice. I wouldn't recommend taking more than 250mg of CBD daily because of how it taxes the liver.CBD does absolutely nothing for me I've ingested and Vaped grams of broad-spectrum in full spectrum distillate as well as isolate it never felt anything. When i8 a couple grams of CBD isolate it upset my stomach and I felt a little nauseous other than that nothing
I respectfully disagree. My Guinness has 4.2% ABV and my whisky is 40% ABV. Tylenol, vitamins and all medications are produced with a specific scientific unit of measure to establish consistency.Ive never used it at a dose that I would know. I feel like CBD oil is something i would need to eat grams of or use grams of as a topical to know if it has any affect. The whole dosing it out in milligrams like its a drug is what makes it snake oil.

I do agree that there are many products on the market that are completely worthless. Whole plant matter extracts are the only way to go imo, as single cannabinoid extracts (isolate) do very little for some people. Grow your own, get it tested and formulate extraction accordingly.
Yes, absolutely. Hash can be made with any CBD/THC strain. Dry sift is a great way to get the goodness from the plant. I enjoy kief (or hash) in a bong with a screen - very simple, effective, tasty and immediate. Dry sift (kief) has a longer shelf life than hash as one is not popping the trichomes. Agreed, that some THC enhances the beneficial attributes of CBD. Sort of like a smile to go with the relief of what ails one.On that note:
Is there such a thing as CBD Hash?
re: My favorite pain killer med is full melt hash - the best has a definite narcotic effect that rivals a low dose of an opiate - half a vicodin 5 if you will.
I'm wondering if there is a similar full-plant concentrate for the CBD / Low THC* market?
*I feel a little THC enhances CBD greatly.
I agree that based on the current cost per mg is what makes it not work for me. I have no issues with buying CBD isolate or full spectrum CBD distillate and then making my own tinctures because it makes things exponentially more affordable. I generally also prefer my CBD with THC for an entourage effect. Making my own tinctures with CBD allows me to choose the strain the THC comes from as well as choose my own CBD to THC ratios.The whole dosing it out in milligrams like its a drug is what makes it snake oil.
Interesting, I've never seen the cost broken down like that, important perspective. I've never bought any myself, just toying around with what I grew.I agree that based on the current cost per mg is what makes it not work for me.

When I use CBD personally I try for a single dose around 75mg - 150mg of CBD. So for example CBDistillery full spectrum CBD Oil Tincture = 30ml / 500mg CBD @ $45. Translates to $.09 per mg CBD. 75mg dose costs $6.75 or 150mg dose costs $13.50.
I can get full spectrum CBD distillate for as low as $1.50 a gram if you buy more than 500g at a time. More realistically from $3.5 to $5 a gram if I buy 10 to 20 grams at a time.
Very true. There is no exact singular answer for every situation and it's important to keep that in mind.Interesting, I've never seen the cost broken down like that, important perspective. I've never bought any myself, just toying around with what I grew.
Also interesting that your dose is that high--I was more in the 40-50mg range. I'll have to experiment more. Based on my research so far, everyone responds differently and there's kind of "sweet spot" in terms of dose. Taking more doesn't always translate into bigger effect--sometimes you can overshoot and feel nothing. The whole endocannabanoid system is very mysterious!
A friend of mine didn't get any relief from his carpal tunnel by consuming CBD orally. So he tried vaping buds which too provided little relief. When high CBD bud was combusted, he received the most relief. Sound weird, but that's his experience.I have pinched nerves in both L4 and L5 on the rightside. The doc said it came from 30 years of sitting behind a desk on a fat wallet. The pain isnt just limited to my back but runs down my buttocks, back of my thigh thigh and behind the calf (the calf often is the worst) on the right side. Ive had the corticosteroids injections that only l;ast 2-3 days and now Im on opioids just so I can function and try to stay active as a cardiac patient. Must stay active! Unfortunately, my experience with CBD oil as a standalone pain reliever before being prescribed opioids failed completely. I tried high dollar types, and slightly less priced brands and not just a few, probably a dozen different brands and strengths. It just didnt work for me. But that was two years ago. I thinking about trying it again as the opioids only offer small windows of relief. And maybe "together" the CBD may work better. As the Opioids work better with OTC Ibuprofen is taken with it. Also Ive been thinking of getting a good CBD strain and making my own if I can do without expensive equipment. The best relief I get is doing my cardiac exercises in the pool. The weightlessness works better than anything.
