I don't know enough about the vaporizers but I would think a chrushing & fine chopping, then a soak in some distilled water - to make a kind of tea - and then a fine meshed strain, would get close to what you'd want.

I'd love to grow ... and I know for a fact I'd give nearly all mine away. I want to do it to contribute to the research. Shy

RE: Official Cannabis Thread
The resin that contains all the good stuff isn't soluble in water.

The basic method for making cannabis oil is to strip the resin from the plant with a solvent, most commonly isopropyl alcohol. The solvent is then removed through evaporation. Once the solvent is gone, you are left with cannabis oil. Quality depends on dozens of factors, most importantly, filtration.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Cannabis oil?? I didn't even know that was a thing! Of course that doesn't mean much considering I've never even smoked pot. Geeze...I didn't realize I had been wearing such a halo over my head. Looks like I need to go visit someone in a legal state!!

Cannabis oil mixed with grape seed oil (about 40:60) and heated gently for about 15 minutes. 1/8 tsp in a gel cap. No smokey. No drinkey. Just three hours of being One with the couch.

So, you soak your buds with the iso for a while, filter the liquid, then wait for the iso to evaporate. Then mix your oil with grape seed oil and heat in a pan on a really low setting for about 15 minutes, and I assume use like an eye dropper to fill gel caps? Consider

Sounds like a lot of delicate work (much more delicate than my adventure with the cannabutter Laugh out load ). Do you get a better bang for your buck converting to cannabis oil than to butter? Even adding some keif to my butter I was only getting about half the potency of just smoking what I'd converted Undecided did three batches just in case I didn't let the slow cooker go long enough. Didnt notice much discernible difference with extending the time in my crock pot.

If converting to oil is a little better exchange rate, I may try it. Still looking for ways to avoid smoking if I can. Though, I don't know why I still haven't just bought a vaporizer. Probably the easier solution for someone like me who isn't used to this kind of tinkering.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you.

RE: Official Cannabis Thread
There's LOTS more to it. Plus, without proper recovery equipment and good safety training, the process is dangerous. THere's obviously plenty of tutorials out there on the interwebz, but I actually don't advocate people making there own concentrates. It's just not something that's safe to do outside a lab.

RE: Official Cannabis Thread
My bro in law just came back from a trip to Colorado, his first trip. Had some edibles which I tried, nice mellow body high. Had some bud, which he had a coupon for when he got to the shop so he got to pull from the "coupon bud". I didn't try it, he said it was good, but not anything to write home about.

The coolest thing he had was the "E-cig" he got. Good high, not mindblowing but he only spent $15 on the thing and it lasted him over a week. The best thing about it was on thanksgiving. He pulled it out in the living room when everyone else went into the kitchen or was elsewhere for the moment. We passed it around a couple times and quickly hid it when someone came in. I thought for sure someone would smell something, but for the next five minutes everyone who came through didn't even notice a thing, even those who used to smoke and I was sure would smell it.

That was fucking cool. Looking forward to the day that I can legally purchase something like that here.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Re: Official Cannabis Thread
I'm one of the few who have never smoked it. But I wholeheartedly support its legalization.

That's what I am after, the ecig - that is not smoke, it is vapor. Guess I'll have to wait til the stores open mid next year.

RE: Official Cannabis Thread
Ok, I have been studying vaporizers at gotvape. I am utterly and completely confused. Spending $400+ is crazy - is that what works? What about the whips? Years ago I had a glass vapor thingie that looked like a whip but worked by itself - the whip descriptions here have all listed what they are compatible with - can they be used by themselves or not?

Oh, I am so confused, that store seems to have everything but isn't exactly informative...

Shocking
