Green Dragon

Post by fibrosux »

I recently made some green dragon with my AVB (already vaped bud) and was thinking of trying it with fresh trim, it took a fair bit of time and effort to make but the results were pretty potent.

I put the AVB into an electric coffee grinder to chop it all up, then wrapped it in cheesecloth and soaked it in water to remove any burnt taste, probably not necessary for fresh, changing the water frequently and storing in the fridge.

After I was happy that any water soluble matter was gone and the water was clear I then spread it onto a foil lined baking tray and popped it in the oven for a while to dry and decarb it .

I then bought the strongest rum I could find (Any 70%ABV spirit will do) and soaked the decarbed bud in it, again storing in the fridge and shaking it up frequently, I think I left it for around 6 weeks like this.

Then I filtered out the solid matter, once through a permanent coffee filter and then a second time through filter paper.

The result was then placed into dropper bottles, all you need to do it place a few drops under you tongue and a short while later it hits!

Has anyone tried anything similar with trim?

:oik!: Hi fibro!

Yes.

I used whole buds ground up and soaked in overproof rum for 2 months in the kitchen cupboard. Then I filter the buds out and leave the rum for another month or two in the cupboard.

It decarbs naturally with the heat and days passing. :oik!:

It's potent enough with AVB, I'm guessing it's even stronger with fresh bud!

Yeah, still plenty of cannabinoids in it afterwards, shame to waste it!

I make coconut 🥥 oil from my ABV.

Everything all in a slow cooker for 24 to 48 hours. I've done it for 3 days before.

Then into a cloth hot, drain it all out. I then find you have to let it set, then take them solid off the top and disguard horrible black smelly water, just carbon deposits from any burnt bits in ABV.

Hot boiling water and then set again and repeat this process until I get clean water.

I only decarb any leaf or bud material. ABV goes straight in.

One of my cookies 🍪 blasted my shoulder pain at work the other day. Lunch time treat helped loads and I find its a very clear high when at work and keeping busy.

I'm goimg to look into baking cakes 🎂 soon too.

Also things like ginger, peppermint and dark chocolate 🍫 all help mask any ABV taste. But they smell gorgeous 😍

Ive made the green dragon before with pure alcohol but not for me. Green dragon you don`t decarb anything by the way and anyhow your AVB will already be decarbed from using it in vape. Here`s a safe way i used to make iced dragon (green dragon if you don`t decarb your buddage) https://wakeandbake.co/freezer-cannabis-tincture/

I use vg fluid to make tinctures with around 1oz of bud which makes around 500ml. I decarb bud, sling it in a jar and cover with vegetable glycerin, which i then sling in slow cooker on low for 24hours before removing it and letting it cool and fridging it ,i then remove it from fridge and top it up with rest of vg fluid to 500 ml before putting it back in slow cooker on high for a few or three more days stirring as much as possible in that time and running the mix through a few hot and cold periods during this time. The vg fluid isnt as harsh as alcohol and has a real sweet taste to it, you can use it for many things even for sweetening your morning coffee, it takes on around half the amount of cannabinoids and whatever else as pure alcohol so you take twice as much. You could use it in ecigs i suppose too if you added 30% pg fluid after finishing the initial process. Basically i do this here https://skunkpharmresearch.com/glycerin-extraction/ to create this here which is bloody lovely stuff and much prefered to alcohol tinctures by myself.

Never tried this recipe in my ecig although yes i can`t see why not by adding 30% pg fluid and flavouring if ya like at end .

A better proposition for ejuice would be to make some pure RSO and mix with the wax liquidizer https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from ... s&_sacat=0 which is made with PEG fluid so canna doesn`t just fall out of it to bottom. Or even better use some real Terps for taste and RSO https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from ... s&_sacat=0 i think you`d still need a cutting/thinning agent like PEG400, VG or PG fluid but not sure tbh.

If i do make RSO i either eat it or blaze it pure in a yocan evolve plus.

It's all foreign to me guys but I never fail to admire the amount of effort people put into finding the effects they need or want from this most versatile of medicines :Stoned:

Some great work going on here.

Carry on exploring brave canna explorers :bye:
