      After waiting for all these weeks, I'm really excited. I have used the time waiting to get a lot of research done. The very first thing I want to try is a small piece of decarbed Cannatonic under the tongue!!!

        I am drying all my trim in paper bags; will make tincture next week as well. ;-}

      I was going to wait until you guys reported back but I just succumbed to a delayed impulse buy. Even if it's not as great as they claim, as long as it works it should be worth the expense.

      Now I have to decide -- decarb the trim or make dry ice hash and then decarb that? (Or, of course, "why not both?".)
      My first grow

        I made dry ice hash first and then turned it into tincture my last run and I liked it.

        It made decarbing and extracting with Everclear easier as it was less volume to deal with. Only thing is, I think there were plenty of trichomes left, I had a quick look at the spent material after my shakes. I think Everclear extraction is a more effective method.

      Sooooo I couldnt wait so I decarboxylated about a half ounce of Painkiller XL with the NOVA. Its a 1/1 THC, CBD mix designed for pain management among other things. It came out absolutely perfect color and texture for all the pieces, even those in the center. No smell throughout the cooking( about 90 minutes), Some smell on opening it,No surprise there. Its now soaking in Everclear overnight.To be continued........

        It decarboxylated the cannabis perfectly in about 90 minutes ZigZag. I should have taken a picture. Allatup will be making some and maybe will post a picture.

      1/2 oz of cannabis, 10 oz of everclear, soaked overnight with a shake now and then. Fan reducing as I type in the rectangular pyrex container.

          Looks like Golden Tiger. Anxious to hear reports.
          Of the 10 oz of EverClear, how much did you recover? What kind of press did you use?
          I use a little garlic press. Its a bit of pain as its small, but very effective.
          How easy is it to get the oil or tar off the glass? I used a Teflon BHO pan of sorts and its still a pain to scrape it off.

            I recover none of the everclear as Im just blowing a fan over it. I dont press any of it as Im trying to get the trichomes only. I dont want fine material or chlorophyll in the oil. I dont reduce it as far as you do Jason. I reduced 12 oz of liquid to about 3 oz ( took about 2 hours). Since there is still a few ozs of alcohol left its easy to scrape off the side glass while swirling the remaining alcohol. Then I just pour it into a 4 OZ bottle while scraping the bottom with a rubber spatula to get all of it.Then I add about a teaspoon of glycerin and about an ounce of water and and 4 or 5 drops of Tangerine flavoring.
            Normally I have it in a bottle with an eye dropper for precise dosing but this time I put it in a 4 OZ spray bottle. I took two sprays and Im comfortably baked with no pain.

            Well, I have you to thank alltlatup. Thanks for the tip on the machine.

          #41
          Ya, Im so happy alltatup, I couldn't have asked for a smoother process. Ill never decarboxylate in the oven again and ill never boil alcohol ( dangerous) on the stove again. The fan reduction took about as long as it usually takes me to boil it off. 2 hours per 10-12 ounces of liquid.. It reduces the chances of burning off the " good stuff" by a huge factor by fan reducing the volume.

            You can't burn off any of the good stuff with this method!

            Dutchman, I don't understand the vegetable glycerin thing: what does that do for the tincture? Does it thin it?

            And.... so 14 grams of cannabis, and it sounds like you end up with around 4 oz of medicine; how many drops do you take? I know that 4 oz is a lot of drops!!!

            Glycerin is to keep the resin from sticking to the eye dropper and side of the bottle.I found it did with just water and much less so with a little glycerin in there. The water is to thin it. My dose is usually about 10 drops ( 1/2 milliliter). Its pretty concentrated but then Im fairly low tolerance so dont need much. My friends take a half a dropper full to a full dropper full. 20-30 drops and sometimes even more. Also the cannabis Im using is fairly low THC as its a 1-1 THC-CBD. 9%THC 9% CBD.

          Thanks for posting your technique. That would definitely result in some very powerful medicine.
          Of the 10 oz of EverClear you started with, how much goes into the glass pan?
          I sometimes reduce it down to tar or don't reduce at all and drink (mixed).
          Good to know what glycerin does to viscosity and handling. I have some, but never used it.

            About 9 ounces so I lose about 1 ounce by not pressing it. I end up with 3 or 4 after reducing. I try for 2/3 to 3/4 reduction just to make it more concentrated. You could use it just as is in a drink as you mentioned.

            I generally dont measure how much everclear. I just put the herb in a mason jar and cover it to about 1 inch above the material. If i have more weed then i get more tincture. I also do a "second wash" as previously mentioned in this thread. Its much weaker but still effective enough for me at a higher dose..

          #44
          My machine was waiting for me when I got home from work: brightened my day way the hell up!!! I immediately decarbed the small harvest of Cannatonic I was drying, and now there is some Lithium OG Kush in there, which I plan on vaping when it's done. I have next week off work, so I will be concocting all kinds of medicines and potions then!!!
