@airbud, that is almost exactly how I made the salve in the last two years, only I never brew for 8-12 hours, but maybe 1 hour tops.
Now I read somewhere, that THCa is a lot more anti-inflammatory than THC, so the decarboxylation might even be counterproductive.
Another thing is, I always used only the buds and the nearby small leaves, but this time, the seeds were a lot to expensive not to think how to use the whole plant to make the ultimate remedy. That's why I am also thinking of creams. Creams, being an emulsion of fat and water, could carry a lot of different cannabinoids.
@420somewhere, that ratio almost sounds stingy to me, i used 2-3 times as much.420somewhe420re420somewhere
