It's actually been around for a while. Ed Rosenthal and (I think ) Frenchey Cannoli have a patent on it. I saw a commercial product called "Ripple". Tasteless, odorless, water soluble and I had to have it. Being in a shithole state, I can't buy so I have to make.
I read a few patents from Traite Biosciences, Ed's and a few others. Traite used fermentation for their commercial products. I have had some success with using cannabis caramels to ferment apple cider. Worked fucking awesome. I currently have 2 other fermentation tests running.
The maltodextrin is, by far the easiest DIY method I have found so far. And, cheapest.
@Tin, I am working with Sam right now over at grass city. We were having conflicts in weights and measures until I determined we were using different types of maltodextrin. Duh. LOL Sam is awesome with this. I think it's his regular poison. Soon to become mine.
I have searched long and hard for a tasteless cannabis that I can mix with my drink of choice. This maltodextrin is not a 100% effective method. But, it has put me on the path.
I also tried using the malt extract that I use to make beer and it worked just as well. So, I am going to mix some cannabis oil with that malt. And, then use that malt to brew the beer. I'll have a batch in the fermenter by tomorrow.
For someone like myself with tolerance issues and a gag reflex for the taste of cannabis, this is a godsend.
This is by far the most tasteless method I have found. Even better than caps because I don't get the canna burps. LOL
