    Absolutely. I am getting off better on my edibles than I EVER have.

    You can read about some of my issues in the "Adding Terpenes to Edibles" thread (if you care. LOL) but my dosage was 2 full grams of rosin, decarb'd and mixed with coconut oil, in caps and food. And, even that resulted in almost no effect.

    I have done sous vide in the last 5 or 6 edibles and my dosage is almost 1/10th of what it was.

    I was getting pretty good results adding terps back after decarbing and that's when I realized it's all about the terps. The pressing process and the decarb (whether oven or beaker/hotplate method) was taking too much away. Adding back the terps enabled me to make 'party mixes' and 'pain mixes' and 'sleepy-time mixes'. That simply confirmed that it's all about the terps.

    When I read about sous vide, it just made too much sense to me, not to try it. So, I did. I'll never go back.

    I don't add terps to my edibles any more. My edibles are 10x more effective now. And, (not related but) I use lecithin now to increase the bioavailablity.

    All-in-all.... My pot will never see an oven.... ever again. LOL

    And, for the first time in forever, I am getting high again.

    Another score for the French...... LOL

      This guy actually decarboxylates using water and cannabis sealed in vaccum bags.

      The reason he does this is to save the Terps which normally escape when decarbing is done in a regular oven.

      He has also a video.

        In the case of Sous Vide, everything is sealed inside a vacuum bag. Nothing actually touches the water.

          so how much can you actually process at a time with this method? ideally i would want to do a minimum of 20 gr up to 60 or even 80 grams.

          i like that it works for you ringo...this seems to be the best way to keep strains individual characteristics when making caps/edibles

            That is really cool.

            I think that the bags sealed even in a pot of boiling water, or in the second pot in a double boiler would be extremely close in results. The transition from water to water vapor makes the temp pretty stable at around 100C/212F.

            I'm not saying it's exact, but for those not wanting more gadgets. Yeah, those people really exist!

              Hey Oz, what's up bud? Yeah, you remember the problems I had in that other thread. I am amazed that I am getting high again. Just about to make some beer. LOL

              As to how much you can decarb at one time........ as much as you can fit in your pot of water. LOL

              I imagine the cheaper units might have trouble keeping 20 gallons of water heated but those nice expensive 1500 watt Sous Vide machines would probably keep up. Load up a pound and put it in a 20 gallon drum. LMAO

              I bought the cheapest one I could find and I am going to buy a better one. It takes forever to get 2 gallons of water to 200F. LOL However, once it's there it maintains it just fine.

              About 90 minutes in 200F water in a vacuum sealed bag. Best decarb I ever did. And, easy and clean to boot. No smell AT ALL.

              Then, about 6 hours to extract.

              In a 2 or 3 gallon stock pot, you could easily do an ounce, maybe 2.

              They have "sous vide" 'racks' that you can set in the bottom of your pot and stack bags in. They hold 4 or 5 bags, each one capable of holding about an ounce of weed.

                Why lose any Terps if you don't have to? This method is better.

                    Keep it around 200F for 90 minutes.

                        French: Sawed-off sissies who eat snails and slugs and cheese that smells like people's feet. They take filthy pictures of each other with cheap cameras, wash nothing but their dicks, fight with their feet, and perform sex acts with their faces. Utter cowards who force their own children to drink wine, they gibber like baboons even when you try to speak to them in their own wimpy language.

                        Good Points: Invented the blowjob.

                        Proper Forms of Address: Froggy, froggy-wog, frog-eater, French-lips, Franco fuck-face, clit-lick.

                        An Anecdote Illustrating Something of the French Character: A Frenchman goes home with his best friend and they find the friend's wife laying naked on the dining room table with her legs spread apart. The Frenchman takes a close look at her pussy and says, "Zees looks like zee menstrual blood!" Then he bends down, takes a deep whiff, and says, "Zees smells like zee menstrual blood!" Finally he gets down on his knees, eats her out for about twenty minutes, and says, "Zees tastes like zee menstrual blood! Without a doubt, it eez zee menstrual blood! Mon dieu, I am glad zat we did not fuck her! !"

                            Oh, cut it out. It's humor. Straight from the National Lampoon. My god, when did the world loose it's sense of humor.

                            Besides, I gave you credit for inventing the blow job. Geeze. What more do you want.

                            ITALIANS

                            Racial Characteristics: This least appealing of the European peoples combines natural criminal propensities with an attitude of slavish idolatry toward that Whore of Rome, the Pope. When speaking, the Italians gesture frantically with their hands in an attempt to distract your gaze from their ugly faces-upon which are clearly etched the marks of their moral and intellectual degeneracy. They cannot stop stealing, and will sometimes go so far as to steal money that is rightfully theirs from the pockets of their own trousers even as they wear them. Worse yet, they rarely catch themselves doing so. (Not that it matters, since their currency is worth nothing.) Otherwise, they amuse themselves by kidnapping the neighbor's children, voting for Communists, and staying out on strike, where they've been since the 1940s. On the field of battle they are abject cowards, and in the kitchen they're enthralled with bruised tomatoes and the noodle only.

                            Good Points: Big tits.

                            Proper Forms of Address: Ginzo, guinea, dago, spaghetti-bender, wop.

                            A German Joke of the War Years Illustrating Some Points Concerning the Italian Character: During the campaign in North Africa, an Italian tank and a German tank accidentally collided and the two surprised drivers jumped out. The Italian yelled, "I surrender! I surrender!" The German shot him.
