    I would advocate against mixing fresh bud with vaped bud for recipes, and I would especially advocate against any use of ABV for fatigue. I've tried capsules numerous times and often had trouble with dosage. I've found great success with recipes that are oil-heavy, and filling a dropper bottle with my oil to meter the dosage. If you are like me, you will find that even 1/4 ounce of herb can last a very long time when converted into oil. Either way, I think you would be best served by splitting your oil into separate batches in order to compare the effects of the two source materials.

    In my experience, ABV preparations aren't very beneficial except for pain relief (also works great for healing the skin) and sleep. On the other hand, I've found that preparations made from fresh bud are quite suitable for daytime use and do a great job of curbing fatigue.

    Used this method yesterday. Only difference is I added liquid lecithin to the mixture. Made some very potent mint chocolates. Thanks for the easy method!

    Where do you guys find lecithin granules at locally?

    I've checked over a half dozen stores and can't seem to find it anywhere. What section of the store is it typically in?

    Thanks.

    Typically it is in the baking aisle or natural foods aisle. I would bet you can find it at a health food store like Whole Foods.
    I bought mine off Amazon

    Yeah - and if possible, get it in powder form. I have never used powdered lecithin but wow has it got to be easier to work with than the granules, which seem to take an awful long time to dissolve in the hot THC/coconut oil.

    I purchased liquid lecithin. Can't get any easier than that. :)

    Used this method for some brownies to stay up during family Christmas. 3oz of ABV made 10oz of VERY potent infused oil.

    The brownies were incredible, both in flavor and potency. Still have 2oz left over.

    Wonderful! :)

    One question: Are you referring to volume or weight? Heh, one of the many reasons I prefer the metric system over this one...

    ABV was weight, coconut oil is volume.

    I too prefer metric, but living in the US, it's not easy lol.

    I have about 1/2 oz avb and a couple of oz decarbed trim in the crock pot simmering in a blend of avocado and coconut oil. Been warming for 14 hours, turned it off so I can sleep without being concerned with stirring. Still scouring stores for lecithin. Love the smell of the house, though the roommates don't, but they are cool and accept that this is for my health. Will report back in a couple days when the oil is finished.
