well it has been a while but i thought i would report on my progress...

things are going very very well, i now have 4 recipes as i have added a 'happy' mix which is humelene/alpha pinene dominate...this happy mix is actually working very well...myself and others that use it find we are just in a much better mood and generally feel more cheerier...

another aspect of using terpenes has been the ability to remove tolerance build up...in the past before i used terps i would quite quickly build tolerance up on edibles. now with the 4 different profiles i am using i just rotate through the blends. i always take a 'night' one every evening but during the day i mix it up depending on whats install for me...

less is more when it comes to the effectiveness of my caps, taking more actually reduces the 'stone' and i get a better response taking 2/day then i do taking 4/day...

also the medical effects are really starting to make these attractive the anti inflammatory properties, the sleep assistance and general well being improvements have been very well received. one person has now been able to cease 4 different pain/anti inflam medications and have a much better quality of life...

overall a very positive experience...

Hey guys.... guess what? I'm fucking stoned. Almost forgot what this feels like.

In a word....... lecithin.

Bioavailability.

Also, been doing via Sous Vide.

So, I don't know if it's the efficiency of the Sous Vide or the addition of more lecithin but something is working.

I first discovered it a few days ago when I took my normal dose of ....ALL OF IT !!!!! LOL... and a couple hours later, I actually had to lay down on the couch for a minute.

Wow, at first I thought something was wrong. Then, I said to myself... shit dude, you're stoned. Been so long I forgot what it felt like. LOL

The dose was VERY light (for me). I used 1 ounce of flowers and 1/2 cup of coconut oil. Made some Coco Krispies treats and ate about half of them. So, about 4 tablespoons of oil.

Damn...

So, yesterday I made some heavy whipping cream. I used only 1 ounce of the same strain flowers in 1/2 cup of cream.

I just took 1 tablespoon. I don't expect much but, we'll see.

Just wanted to report a success story. I had so much failure in this thread that good news was due. LOL

Also, I have been reading about bioavailability and myrcene comes up often.

Hey Oz, if you read this, would you post your terp recipes?

How about using nylon oven 'turkey roaster' bags? Suck the air out with a straw, and knot the top like you would bagging nuggs.

Lab tests confirm effective decarb this way for me. Only issue is if decarbing oil instead of flower the oil is difficult to contain in a vacuum sealed bag.

Since I started doing Sous Vide, I stopped adding terps to my edibles. I don't have to any more.

This sous vide method is 'ground breaking' as far as I'm concerns.

Wow did life get so busy for me. It was at least 8 months ago that I made my first order, and put my first posts on the thread. I have been insanely busy with work, but all the while I at least have my experiences to share now!

First, my overall impression with True Terpenes: They are excellent! Prompt responses, helpful customer service, they take excellent care packaging AND shipping the products. My first few orders were all just sample packs. I can attest to the aroma and flavor "accuracy" of several of the profiles where I have tried the originals. The super lemon haze is spot on. I'm not certain if I've ever had authentic "og kush" but I really like the aroma/flavor and effect of their OG profile. I like the sweet citrus sandalwood-ish.

As many of you have already discussed and experimented with regarding indica-body/sedative effects: the Grandaddy Purple profile was my favorite nighttime/ body relaxation+ happy: Its predominantly Linalool, Humulene and Myrcene. At the end of a long day when my neck and back hurt, it truly hits the spot. My father also responds favorably to this mixture as well (for his PM med). He was actually my primary consumer and he has had great response for his sciatica and knee osteoarthritis.

I have since ordered the smallest bottles of pure terpene isolates of the following: Myrcene, Linalool, Humulene, Beta-Caryophyllene and Phytol. My primary interest in phytol is it's possible effects on GABA.
Has anyone else experimented with phytol? I would be interested in hearing your experiences.

As many others have already stated:

1.)You develop a bit of tolerance to a specific terpene profile, so it is good to do occasional rotating or mix up your regimen a bit.

2.) Similar to others, I make capsules. Decarb bud, then heat with lipid of choice (olive oil & coconut oil) along with lecithin. I use an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner in my DIY attempt at making a "nano-emulsion". Last step add the terps.

At the risk of going off on a separate-thread level of tangent: Has anyone else attempted the DIY "nano-emulsion" (ultrasonic jewelry cleaner-lecithin + cannabis oil). I'm unsure if it's just the lecithin, or the sonicating helps, but it does seem to slightly improve bioavailability. Unfortunately, nothing substitutes for consuming edible 15-30 mins before eating a fatty meal- as far as bioavailability goes.

Keep up the good work guys. I will try to contribute with my specific formulations and how they correlate with my experience but for now just dropping a quick message!

Also as others have attested to, using Sous Vide goes a long way to preserving the terpenes when preparing edibles. I was already able to retain the terps in my edibles when I began looking into add-in terps.

I was more interested in being able to precisely formulate or modulate certain effects ( be they therapeutic, recreational, or for aroma & flavor) and I would imagine that is the primary reason most others are interested as well.

Hey MS81, sounds like we are doing a very similar in regards to making caps although i don't use ultrasonics. when i decarb i am actually removing most of the naturally occurring terpenes, this allows me to control what effect the caps give by manipulating the terpene profile.

my terpene recipes are like a blunt instrument when compared the natural terpene profiles cannabis has but they do give a definitive experience. i have given my various caps to several people now and ask them to detail what they feel without telling them what to expect. across my 3 main recipes i get consistent responses from my testers matching the type of experience i am aiming for.

i look forward to hearing about your formulations and experiences...
