What about using a sealed stainless steel container with a one-way check valve to allow hydrogen gas to escape but prevent water or oil from entering? It would be much easier to scrape out the contents. There's no need to fully submerge the container. The top with valve could be slightly above the liquid. The check valve is only to eliminate the possibility of contamination and isn't really necessary if great care is taken.

Actually, a tall thin pipe could be used in place of the check valve... tall enough to raise the escape hole far above the fluid level. The vent hole could be very tiny. With no pressure build up, the container could be glass.

WFF, I have a (high) tolerance problem with edibles.

I make all my edibles with rosin and right now, a single dose for me a over 1 gram of pure rosin (usually mixed with butter or coco oil and sunflower lecithin) and taken in a cap or used in brownies/candy/whatever.

I would love to try some terps with my rosin to increase potency and effectiveness. Can you suggest a single terp that I might try? Perhaps the one that has worked best for you?

Loving all your threads bud. Thanks.

Hey Ringo. That is a tough one. To be honest, I have never tried the terpenes individually, only in mixtures that replicate certain strains. I looked at some of my favorite recipes, and most had a dominate mixture of 1. Beta-caryophyllene, 2. Limonene & 3. Myrcene. I would at least start with those 3, but caryophyllene would be my suggestion if only one.

It might sting a bit upfront, but for $143 you can get the following 7x 1oz True Terpene isolates, that can replicate both indica and sativa effect to a pretty good extent. If you want to make vape cartridges, this is a double bonus.

Beta Caryophyllene $23
Limonene $14
Myrcene $25
Linalool $28
Humulene $30
Alpha Pinene $11
Beta Pinene $12

Total $143
Free Shipping (over $100)

Also, True Terpenes sells their in house strain profiles for $200 an oz. $143 for 7oz, is 1/10 the price.

With that much THC in your system, I personally think that you would trip balls on a small amount of terpenes consumed orally. Is there any reason that you are not extracting with alcohol or another solvent to get a better yield than rosin? Are you processing your leftover pucks to get max yield?

I don't believe in solvents. I have done it in the past but with the volume I consume, even tiny ppm's will build up quickly. I'm not concerned with yield. I grow way more than I can consume.

I picked up some mangos and I am going to make some edibles today with them to experiment with the effect. If it works, I'll pick up some myrcene.

I figure I'll try the real thing first. If it helps, I'll get some terps. I hate to buy all this stuff and find out it doesn't work on me. That's what happened with the "holy anointing oil". I spent 100 bux on concentrate oils and the stuff ended up doing nothing for me. Now I have a shelf full of useless oils. My tolerance levels are insane. Nothing ever works for me and nothing gets me high any more.

And, yes, I use the chips to make edibles. I don't double press so the chips are usually nicely coated with rosin. For some reason, it makes the best edibles. I'm not sure if it's because it's decarb'd twice (once during the press and then in the oven before making the butter/oil) or what. But, the butter I make with the chips is usually the only thing that gives me a little buzz.

Thanks for the tip. I'll see how the mango works and then pop over and pick up some terps.

Thanks again

I heard the mango is bogus. There is a laughable amount of myrcene in them and you would have to eat so many, I think Sam was saying in Hash Church.

I personally do not do anything with my rosin chips, I give them to friends, I have gotten good feedback from a couple of friends that made butter with them.

@Santa That would make sense. I am going to decarb a couple grams of rosin today. If I don't eat it all, I'll make mango martinis for the band tomorrow night at practice.

It's always funny to watch my friends faces when they see me eat 10x what they just ate and they are flying high as a kite. LOL

At least someone enjoys my pot. LOL

@WFF I have a health food store locally that has a decent selection of terps. I am going to run by and see if they have any of the terps you outlined above.

And, as always, thanks for the input.

Ditto on that mango thing. I ate .5g of rosin at 5:00 and ate most of the mango. Then, ate another .5g, then finished the mango. Total of 1 mango and 1 gram rosin in about 1 hour.

That was 3 hours ago. :( Nothing

Well, the mango was pretty good. LOL

This is frustrating. LOL Good thing I grow my own, If I had to buy enough pot to get high on edibles, I might as well go back to coke. It would be cheaper. LOL

I am going to the health food store tomorrow to see what kind of terps they have.

Ditto again to your friends on the butter from chips thing. They do seem to make the best butter.

It can take up to 5 or 6 hours for edibles to take affect for me. Other times, it starts in an hour or so. I don't know why.
