Alcohol Extraction

Recommended Posts

 

I have a question about decarboxylation. I have no experience with these processes.

When cooking your cannabis at 225ºF will it not cause the trichs to vaporize? Or is this not hot enough. I'm nervous to do it, I feel that I will loose potency? This is most probably a stupid question?

Hi @Stinger96, here is a graph that shows effect of heat on THC content.

     decarboxylation-graph-1-11.jpg.1c98a3a67d84132f1bb55304ca045ff0.jpg

 

You need to heat the flower to convert from THCA to THC (etc), notice how the THC content peaks and then slowly declines. So follow the graph roughly to work out the time and temperature you need to get to the peak but not too far past it.

Also are you doing alcohol extraction or make cannabutter/oil?

Thnx

Want to try canna caps. Grow weed easy has a few great processes but as I have no experience wondered about the cooking of the bud. Really thought that would vaporize the trichs.🙈

From your experience, will Sativa dominant or indica dominant oil be better? I'm a absolute novice when it comes to oil.

well that question is subjective

what end goal are you aiming for  why are you making the oil

Well I have PTSD, night terrors, some insomnia and back pain. I find that smoking helps but was told I'm bulshitting myself and should start using oils. From all I've read nobody really talks about what kind of cannabis is better. In my mind THC is THC and maybe all oil is basically the same but I do not think that's the case. Read allot about chatlotte's Web and it seam to  be the perfect strain but I still have allot to learn before buggering up good genes. So for now I want to experiment with the bag seed I have and move toward the better genes once I have educated myself enough. I enjoy getting baked too. So a all in one is my end goal.

My 2c, ethanol extract is a full plant extract. I find that sativa keeps me awake but not my girlfriend. So you need to find what works for you. I will try it again when i have a good INDICA.

Been making oil for a very long time now and Sativa is chief on my grow list. I get really big trees which is wonderful for my feco.

I say start with bag seeds and refine every cycle. Yes, different folks get varying results, but generally they get healthy if adjusting some life functions inclusive.

Been taking my dose using a Vapresso by preference.
