High y'all. I'm currently in the process of making canna coconut oil for some chocolates. I use at least a couple of ounces of trim for a batch of 24 chocolates. I do this often, probably at least once every two weeks, so I know it is effective. First I take the trim and put it in a crockpot with water WITHOUT oils. I let almost all the water evaporate off, then I strain and rinse the trim until the water runs clear. Then I put in fresh water and the coconut oil and run the crock until the water/oil has almost disappeared. I then squish the mix in a potato ricer through a strainer. I'll then run hot water through the mix and re-squish a couple of times. cool it in the fridge, re melt in hot water and swirl to clean. yada yada yada. It all works well.
One thing I don't KNOW is if the THCa gets decarbed in the hot water bath. It is h 2 O(xygen) after all.
I have also taken to acidifying the water on the last rinse to increase the polarity of the water, just to (in my theory) help clean the oil. I've read that acidification will decarb. True?
