Weed needs to be decarbed to be ingested orally. Decarbing is achieved by time, but can be greatly accelerated with heat. Green dragon (or any alcohol tincture) takes a long time because the marijuana slowly decarbs as it sits in the booze. By carefully decarbing, you can make a green dragon tincture in 24 hours.
The whipping syphon (we call em pressure whippers) works of for infusing THC, but it's only effective with something like heat pressed hash, oil, or some other form of decarbed weed. Not the best system though. More of a pain than it's worth to be honest.
your knowledge about this stuff amazes me every time
