Strongest coconut oil I can make so far

This is how I go about it:

Coffee grind buds enough to fill pint jar packed tightly. Sous vide at 95C for 1 hour to decarb put jar in bath as it warms up to temp - leave lid loose to vent. Jar can be as full as you want (more = stronger) but pack it tight.

Split decarbed material between two quart jars. Fill each jar with Everclear or similar highest proof spirit you can find. Sous vide 60C for two hours - leave lid loose to vent.

Pour bud/alcohol mix into hash bag or almond milk bag (fine mesh). Squeeze it all out into bowl/pot. Add 1 cup coconut oil.

Fridge to separate - oil will solidify on bottom of pan. Pour off alcohol and return to bottle to recycle for the next time (just keep replenishing your mother mix with new spirits, it gets better with age).

Add hot water - fridge to separate - repeat process to make oil as clean as possible.

After final washing place jar in double boiler bath and fill with oil - cook oil in double boiler on high (your oil will never get over 200 this way) until all bubbles (final decarb) have stopped.

Add 1 Tbl lecithin powder, put on lid and shake it up and put in fridge. Make sure to shake it occasionally until solid to mix lecithin evenly.

Enjoy in small amounts straight or add to something like tea.

Additional things:

I take off the lid every 20 minutes or so on the bud/alcohol cook jar and stir it up with a plastic chop stick.

I use an electric hand mixer on the strained alchol/oil mixture to ensure even distribution prior to refrigeration.

What makes you think all the actives are in the oil and not the ethanol you poured off?

Ethanol gets recycled every time so it never gets lost just stronger

As ethanol becomes more concentrated with each cycle so does your coconut oil so this just improves as you go.

who uses nugs for oil the taste will be like soap, try adding 60grams of 84% thc clear to 1/8 cup coconut thats how we do it...a little drop will do ya
soy lecithin is poison, causes serious physical and mental problems anxiety being number 1, plus soy is plain bad for the human system. use sunflower for a better safer consumption experience.

Personally, I make a Green Dragon tincture (ethanol wash) and mix 1:1 with coconut oil. Heat on a double boiler until the alcohol is gone and bubbling stops (decarb).

I do like the cleaning step though. It's similar to using hexane/water washes to clean up extracts.

Thank you wishdoctor. I forgot to mention that the lecithin used was sunflower lecithin which can be found on Amazon.
