    Hello,

    After having a decent amount of abv i would like to make some edibles.

    I usually vape all of my loads up to 200 - 210°C. Currently having a total of 70gr of ABV.

    Not really into eating it with peanutbutter. Have couple of questions regarding coconutoilextractionmethod.

    So i don't really have a crockpot and want to purchase a electric fryer to let the abv simmer in coconut oil.

    You can set the fryer from 80°C up to 190°C.

    Edit: maybe a chocolate melter is a better option, goes up to 60°C.

    What is the perfect temperature to let the abv fully extract into the coconutoil?

    If i grind the abv with a coffeegrinder untill it's powder will it extract better compared to a normal grind?

    When i have 70gr of abv how much ml coconutoil do i need to use.

    For how long can i let it heat in order for full CBD/CBN extraction?

    After the abv coconutoil is finished warming up / extracting can i filter the grinded abv from the coconutoil through a coffee filter?

    I appreciate any help provided.

    Thanks.

    hey i literally JUST followed this extraction TEK: http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/18572661/fpart/all/vc/1 . it is for regular bud but it works for ABV if you skip the decarb process. i can let you know how it worked out tmrw, but for now i can attempt to try and answer a few questions:

    -I used 24g of ABV and added 12oz of coconut oil, almost a full jar. the ratio given in the TEK converts to ~0.5oz oil per 1g. So for 70g i would use about a liter of oil. I also added some soy lecithin, about 2gs, which supposedly makes the heating process more efficient.
    -the guide recommends baking at 220F, so maybe just use a thermometer with the skillet and keep it under that temp.
    -i tried to strain my abv out with cheesecloth, but next time i would just fine grind it and leave it in. it's a waste of time and too messy to try and strain. probably the best way to ingest is mix with coffee or cocoa so texture wouldnt be a huge problem

    "For how long can i let it heat in order for full CBD/CBN extraction?"

    for this question I would like someone more experienced to answer. I followed the TEK and did two seperate heating stages, but that seemed sorta unnecessary.

    hope that helps

    Im clueless about coconut oil extraction, but i love the idea of using a deep fryer to do the extraction. I guess the machine has a way for you to filter/recycle the oil; solving your abv filtering.
