When the goal is NON psychoactive...

I’m looking for advice on making edibles with NO psychoactive properties. We’ve been cultivating cannabis since 2018 to incorporate the raw leaf into green juice smoothies. For the personal challenge, my husband has brought his plants to flower and now has several pounds of cannabis stored up. I’ve heard that if I make an alcohol tincture without decarboxilating first, I’ll get a product high in CBD-A and THC-A. I’ve also heard that as the flower ages it also loses its potency.

But our oldest flower is quite dry, and I'm afraid it might naturally be activated. (I once got a buzz off a smoothie made with raw sugarleaf that had gotten dry in the fridge.) I absolutely don’t want to get high. I used to be a smoker but I’ve been sober for 20+ years and it just makes me paranoid and uncomfortable. My goal here is anxiety-calming properties. Any suggestions as to method or technique would be appreciated.

PS I’ve already ordered some seeds for a high CBD variety, so by next year this won’t be an issue but for right now I need a solution so I can put our harvest to use, and avoid the pharms my doctor wants to prescribe.

I don't have any definitive answers to this but am genuinely curious as well.
A few questions if you don't mind -
What variety/strain have you been growing? I'd suggest a "pure" (or as close) CBD variety if you could. Something like a 1:10 (THC:CBD) to avoid accidentally giving yourself a buzz.
Even hemp may give you the benefits you seek and depending on your country of residence may keep you out of trouble if it ever comes down to it.

I'll be following this thread along, I hope you find the answers you're looking for!

I'm using San Fernando OG kush crossed with Sleestack. I put 14g into 4 cups of Everclear split into 2 jars and I'm letting them develop in the freezer.

Hi Granny. I don't believe you'll be able to achieve what you're looking for as your starting material does not possess calming attributes - could be wrong though, depending on how it was grown. That hybrid strain is more energizing than calming. You're on the right track though by considering a CBD rich strain for your next grow.

14 grams in 4 cups of ethanol is a very weak tincture imo. I use 120g in 4 cups of MCT oil (instead of alcohol) @160F for 4hours. 1/2ml would be a great starting point at that ratio.

Many people have experienced paranoia from cannabis and the cause is often from consuming an immature product. Green peaches don't possess nearly the nutritional attributes that ripe ones do either.

Good luck in your pursuit of calm. Don't be afraid to experiment along the way. :grin:

if u press fresh, lightly cured cannabis flowers, down to 68 or so rh, the resin/rosin will be mostly thc-a and non-psychoactive. keep it in the dark, sealed, in the frig and it won't decarb.

I should have mentioned I'm only making edibles. I don't want to smoke. Unless I'm missing something with cancerkiller's post.

I'll admit, I had to go to youtube to learn how to make and use rosin. You young'uns today :wink: Things were so much simpler in the 80's when I was sucking down bong hits.

if u have raw flower, just eat the raw flower. break up some nugs on a salad and use lots of dressing.
u don't need to extract. i extract because i'm taking 400mg at 8am, 2pm, 8pm and when i go to bed.
if i thought raw cannabis would help me, i'd just eat the flower. kinda bitter, hench lots of ranch.
cannabis decarbs at room temperature, that's why it gets more psychoactive, then eventually it becomes less psychoactive turning into cbn.
go eat a raw flower and if u feel anything then it's partially decarbed.
edibles are hard to dose.

i'm envious of ur pounds of flower.
i'd get a 12 ton dabpress, about $700 from dabpress and squash out raw resin and mix that into whatever u wanna eat. actually raw resin tastes terrible. i'd put it in capsules.

solventless cannabis flower extract is recreational as far as i'm concerned. ingested it just makes u feel good. probably has prophylactic benefits, but doesn't kill cancer. u gotta be out of ur head to kill cancer using thc, at least until u acclimate.

A hit of Nyquil is a nice topper/nightcap on special occasions ( like when there is some left)............I'm not sure.....hard to tell at that point what the hell is psychoactive. It's trippy shit on top of a good buzzzz-......yum,yum. Woke up midway on a flight to Sao Paulo once, after performing this buzz enhancement, with my hands all over this Braziliaian businessman's face, like a blind person trying to figure out an image...........not good! The man was not smiling at me.......Yikes! The asshat strikes again.
