BKS - Thank you for all the quality recipes! Definitely has to be the best and most thorough compilation I've seen to date - especially the THC-infused oils that include lecithin as a catalyst for absorption. I first saw these recipes a few weeks ago in a Google search on another site. After coming back to ICMag after not growing for a while, I am glad to see that this info has been not only shared here, but stickied for everyone's benefit
I was wondering if you would be willing to share your recipe for glycerine tincture? Sorry to mention it (because of all the BS that got thrown at you), but I read through your e-cig thread hoping to find the recipe within, but didn't really see one. I did see however, plenty of references toward one, but not YOURS, so perhaps this thread is a better place to request it? Would a glycerine tincture be the most ideal process for creating an oral/sub-lingual concentrate?
Also, I see that many of your recipes share a base "hash oil" of the THC-infused coconut oil (same as inside canna-capsules, yes?) - is this your preferred THC-concentrate used to infuse other foods and liquids? I know tinctures can be added to foods - is the hash oil method better?
Lastly, I see that many of your recipes use hash or sieved material as opposed to BHO or buds (obviously going to be the least potent method after shake/trim) for starter material. I would ideally like to make my edibles as potent as possible with as little "cannabis taste" as possible. I don't really make edibles anymore as my previous methods were all based on foul-tasting ganja butter, so I have interest in improving my methods and concentrates seems the way to go. I own a set of bubblebags and make bubble hash on occasion with all my trimmings - but find it's a time-consuming process, so my trim's been accumulating. Recently, I was thinking of getting myself the equipment to make BHO since it seems "faster" and will result in a more pure product although it seems like the least environmentally friendly method - which is why I haven't done it yet. SO....assuming that you don't really smoke so much and consume most of your cannabis through concentrates - do you prefer to make bubble hash or BHO, and then which is your preference for using in edibles?
Thank you again for all the shared knowledge and I look forward to learning more in the future!
