Is that a task where a centrifuge might come in handy ?

Maybe, keep all of the THC & some of the oil.

Somehow.

Which is heavier, THC resin or oil ?

That's not a bad idea. I will look into that.

Obviously oil is heavier or was that a trick question?

A centrifuge would make a great drinky-poo mixer Mr. Leahy.

A centrifuge separates according to density AND they cost money.

So I'd want to know going in where the THC is going to end up, because extracting it from the centrifuge after it's separated could be a trick.

Half-kidding now ==> if you put the centrifuge in freezer that will freeze oil, then you can have a hardened piece of THC - oil like a big ice cube with the oil on the inside or outside, depending on density ... if it works.

Don't even know if that would work.


AND - this is all very academic because I went back and read RingoDoggie's original post.

I ruined a real good centrifuge that was actually in my garage - and WORKING - by trying to use it to separate a gold-sands mixture where I ran the centrifuge hot, with hot wax to help it stay together when removed ... theoretically. Heavy stuff on the outside, that would have been the gold if it worked.

If you were my neighbor I would offer Ringo Doggie my ruined centrifuge for his project. The motor still works, I just didn't think it through. I ruined a primo centrifuge chasing Gold Fever.

I see used lab test tube centrifuges used on eBay all the time for like 10-20 bucks. Not much of a cost there for experimentation. I've blown far more than that on dumb hobbies

I see plenty of cheap centrifuges on eBay for about $50. They all seem to be 4000 RPM rated. Is that enough to provide the separation we want?

If anyone thinks it's worthwhile, I'll buy one and try it.

I gave some of my 'weak' coconut oil to a friend tonight and he took 1 TSP. An hour later he said his legs were numb and he couldn't get up from the bar to pee. LOL I took 3 TBSP of this batch and felt nothing.

I give away more edibles than I eat. LOL

Thats a lot of cooking oil to be eating all at once, you can't reduce that stuff as far as I know, but you can increase the concentration on it. I make cannabutter at equal weights of butter and trim, if you make it that strong and eat 3 tablespoons all sorts of excitement is guaranteed to ensue. You could easily mix in a batch of extra strength oil with what what you already have to create a batch with more reasonably sized portions or you could save the heavy stuff for yourself and use the less concentrated batch to feed to your less experienced amigos.

My band had a gig last night and I took a bunch of chocolate and some coconut oil that I made that was too weak for me.

I gave it out to a couple of the regular fans that I know. By the end of the night, they were bouncing off the walls. LMAO

The really odd thing was that they all said how great the chocolate tasted. They all said they could barely taste the cannabis. Fucking shit gags me. I can barely get it down without puking. LOL

I am beginning to think that I shouldn't be doing cannabis. LOL

Apparently, I am pretty good at making the shit.... just not very good at TAKING it. LOL

I am making more today. I need to decarb a couple ounces for making BEER!! LOL This should be fun.
