    If you don't taste anything anyway you should try out a water cure, that definitely helps to give a smoother smoke but this goes at the expense of the flavor.

    That sounds good, but really I don't even smoke any more, just grow it. I quit July 6th or 2017, it was fun while it lasted, but was time to move on, so now I just grow it, and I doubt I will go to any trouble for any of my friends that might still smoke A little once in A while, if they want the smooth taste stuff, they can grow it them selves. lol

Some methods remove the chlorophyll for flavour and then the guy mentions the chlorophyll has benefits too. I'm not fussed about the flavour if it means theres more benefits. The more I read the more confused I get lol. As for thc, I have northern lights canna butter in the freezer so dose a peas worth every other day atm, sometimes daily
    Solvent wash it. If you make infused oils the flowers retain too much of the good stuff imo. A solvent wash will strip it pretty much completely. You also can monitor the doses way easier too. Use a good carrier oil and sunflower liquid lecithin.

    You really must keep the liver busy before dosing orally and also use as suppositories. The higher you are, the less effective the oils will be.

    Can’t stress enough too in regards to a plant based diet!

    Personally I'm medicating my dog... so suppositories isn't an attractive option lol. I think I'm now decided on the wash 1st method. Would a cooker hood extractor be advisable (got electric glass topped hobs) or better near an open window with fans blasting out? Got a few Kilner jars and a laser thermometer on their way. Debating if I need to buy a hot plate. Need to find a good pan for the final reduction. I've heard teflon is a no no

    Depends on the solvent you are going to use doesn't it?
    Something to also keep in mind is that the higher you go with the temperature the more terpenes you are losing/degrading.

    Lol! Sorry mate, totally missed that bit. Doubt a plant based diet would go down well either!

    Don’t use a cooker hood mate. Not worth the risk. I use a flat bottom wok filled with water and the frying pan on top with electric hot plate. Best to aways do it outside. The fumes are dreadful when boiling off and flammable

    PTFE & PFOA Free non stick pan and some 1ml oral syringes is what I use. Suck it straight out the pan with those and you have your one gram per syringe. I find that easy to keep track of your doses and ratios

    When boiling off the solvent the fumes are very potent but they don’t hang around for long. Seeing as you only have two ish oz there won’t be a huge amount of ISO. Get the pan up to temp then add small amounts each time. Once it starts fizz it’s gone very quickly.

    Whichever way you do it, there’s always gonna be a smell unfortunately

    It’s well worth winterising too. Chuck everything in the freezer for 24hrs. Weed, solvent, jars, funnels the lot. Filter in the freezer too if you can. That will lock out the unwanted fats/wax’s and chlorophyll etc and give a much cleaner finished product

    Not allowed to link it, but if you do a search on YouTube for How to extract CBD/THC from Cannabis with Alcohol/Everclear (a dude in a cap and sunglasses), then you'll see my favourite video so far. Thinking of copying his method.

    So far I have jars, funnels, laser thermometer and of course the erb. Need to buy a hot plate, cheese cloth, coffee filters, and the solvent and carrier oil. Plus some dropper bottles to store it once done

    Go with whatever suites you best mate. His wash isn’t winterised and that can cause an upset stomach with some people. Wouldn’t have a clue about a dog though...


    This is my quick wash ISO that’s winterised.

    The only thing I might add is to give the waste material a 2nd wash at the end and getting a little more out of it.

    This guy didn't seem particularly concerned about efficiency
    I'd give the material a good squeeze to get the most out of it and also pre soak the filters with some everclear so they absorb a little less of the solution that you are after.

    Otherwise a great video and interesting to hear about these trychome skins or what did he call them? I'd never heard that before.

    That was it! I was too lazy to check back in the video. I do hope he is right though because if he isn't he is wasting even more :P

    I wish I could look it up for you but I read it on facebook which is a nightmare when looking for things said way back. I do trust the person who said this to know his stuff.
    In the end trust is kinda what it comes down to because if you look online you can find "evidence" and studies for both sides of the argument about cancer treatment and weather THC is better or CBD is better and there seems to be a debate about this especially when it comes to hormone related cancers such as breast cancer.
    This guy says both are valuable medicines but not to use them at the exact same time because they counteract each other.
