    CB Scientific makes a test similar to this. I'm not sure what ingredients they use but I was planning to but one just to see what it's about.

    Please be understanding if I act a tiny bit unusual at times. Thank you.

      the alcohol passes by a filter (there it is activated charcoal) which takes care to separate
      You can see in the photos, the pellet is not being used as a filter here. Your input is still greatly appreciated.

The pictures strike me as more representative of time lapse - 50% alcohol not extracting well, the carbon doing nothing as the green shows, and CBDA or CBGA slowly reacting. There are Beam threads where I've probably suggested extracting as usual then making the determination in a different way. By finding the minimum amount of diluted decarboxylated extract required to produce a tint with a particular intensity under certain repeatable conditions. Once that's been calibrated with pure CBD and after using TLC to get some idea of what's up.
      I see what you mean. Sounds like a lot of work. lol

        Jeese. I just QWISO (0.5-1g flower/14-28g veg plant), dry, decarb, redissolve, add 2x the KOH as resin. More CBD=More purple. Just use clear extracts to begin with. Not sure why you would do this to a joint. If you didn't get high, it has high CBD or would have little resin to begin with. You will not find use for discovering high concentrations of anything but CBD> CBDA will show negative results and so will every other raw cannabinoid. There are two colors here. Rose for THC and Purple for CBD. This only meant to produce a positive or negative result and is not qualitative in any meaningful way out side that.

        Some terp profiles give differing colors and will produce purple on the rare occasion (rosemary oil will do it I think). THC gives a rose color but can be darker even with no CBD (did this to lab tested stuff). A 50:50 pheno was indistinguishable from a 05:95 pheno (lab verified) unless you control for concentration and do a dilution ratio.....the 05:95 pheno taking 2x the dilution of the 50:50 for similar purple tint results.

        These pigments are unhealthy for you. Be advised

          It can be quite easy to compare plants, without calibrating for %. You see how many drops it takes to produce the color.

          As an alternative to weighing out 80 mg. of NaOH for each vial, it may be wiser to dissolve batchwise the calculated equivalent amount in the water needed to dilute the alcohol to 50%.

            of course not accurate however if can get 1-5% and 5-15% thats still pretty informative. and cheap way to find what pheno has some and or MOST at very least.

            I am not sure of the chemistry, GO JOE, mentioned using a titration type technique, but easily could be "calibrated" simply using fairly easy to get CBD Xl isolate. and again the only issue with #of drops per color change, and i browsed quickly so may be understanding, but wouldnt this also create more accuracy issues? ie temp, time between drops, terpenes etc of dif strains changing ph slightly?

            while we all can agree "a pinch" is far from scientific, the idea is that its easier for people to get the materials. and as it said it needs to be refined, which as some have pointed out could be relatively easy to do. cbd isolate, if in acid form? should be easy way to calibrate without a lab or of course compared to some known tested CBD var, which of course would be ruff but thats all this really is for, presence of cbd pheno and perhaps get a ruff idea which has most?

              Thanks to everyone who participated in this thread. Thank you, clearheaded for posting it up.

              It took me a minute, but here's the refined, 8 minute home test for CBD content, which is highly accurate.

                Sorry I know its an old 3d .

                I' d like to understand apart from the availability of the ingredients
                what are the advantages (if any)wirh your test over the classic beam test?

                How to spot high CBG plants over high CBD ones with this as with the original test?

                  I see what you mean now Sante, no worries.

                  The test has a few advantages. Speed. Availability of ingredients. Low cost. The accuracy is difficult to determine by color alone, so it is only a rough estimate of CBD content.

                          I need to look into it more, but found "grow buddy" THC/CBD test kit. Looks like it does 20 tests for about $100, and refills should be cheap, since comes with scale, thermometer, and other re-usable items. Uses chromatography at home without sending it out ( I think). Have to research it.
