Would that work?im not an expert on what ingredients change consistency and overall taste in a recipe. I'm game to try it out !just don't want to ruin my batch of oil because substituting something made the end product inedible or not tasty.
Encapsulate it for easy administration.
We will see how it works ,making those ginger snaps vegan style today !going with honey as a substitute for the sugar. I don't really want to try them myself at the moment wish I had some testers on hand
My next batch of ginger snaps will have more crystallized ginger and I'd like to try a little fresh ginger, like Trader Joe's have in their 3-ginger snaps. For me, I prefer the taste of ginger snaps over brownies.
After making so many special brownies over the years I hate them now!makes it eaiser since I don't eat chocolate and am vegan. I love ginger just eating it plain so I'll definitely stock up on fresh and dried when I go out to get the ingredients.
Honey? 100% natural fruit juice?
To increase potency by adding more coconut oil would it be a bad thing if I used more then what the recipe called for. Say it was for 1 cup and I used
1 1/2- 1 3/4cups
Brown sugar healthier or maybe try using honey as a sweetner
I'll be your tester send it on over threw usps
I know the original post is old, but it seems a little less easy than what I do so I figured it's still worth sharing.
Canna Coconut Oil:
1 small sauce pan
1 small metal bowl who's rim can rest on the pan's rim without dropping in
fill water in pan until bowl barely floats and barely touches pan
put 1/2 oz ABV with 5 table spoons coconut oil in bowl
simmer (under boiling), at low temp for 2 hours
decant then strain oil, cool and save
Canna Coconut Bhang:
dump water from pan
put remaining ABV in pan
add a 1/2 cup heavy cream and 1/2 cup whole milk
simmer (under boiling), at low temp for 1 hour
strain milk, drink and enjoy (), compost ABV
This is my favorite afternoon of the month! Hehe.
Well I dont like this approach, I think it should be more scientific. for example, there should be a ratio or AVB/WEED to COCONUT OIL.
Im trying to find something that works, and details are left out many times....
There are so many variables. How good the unvaped product was; how far vaped the product taken - yellow/green or chocolate brown; grind of ABV; length of time coco oil/ABV in hot water bath; how often agitated;
The best a person can do is "titrate", that is, experiment on yourself. To titrate is to measure how much of a substance you have by measuring how much of the solution is required to achieve a given reaction. Start small....
im more interested in ratio of weed/coconutoil/soylechtin combo. I think im going to try this forumula I found, it calls for freezing it a couple of times. It might be a secret of some sort who knows
for example some people say leave the plant martial in the pills, others say leave it out
Once you've done it a few times you'll find a method that works for you. I only freeze if I'm doing a cold wash in ethanol, which I don't do with ABV. Rule of thumb tho is enough coconut oil to cover your herb. For lecithin I use a tablespoon for each cup of oil. And I filter it afterwards because I don't like chewing on herb. I've tried, several times, and it gets worse every time
I just tried a.method that said to use a 1.5 gram to 7 gram ratio of weed/oil
I ate 3...in about 2 hours ill see if its a failure
One 2 tuts with people comment they said ti freeze and reheat 4 Times...
If you truly want to be scientific about it then you need to figure out what actives are left in your ABV, right? Otherwise, what does it matter what the ratios are, you should then measure the actives in your oil to determine potency, since the extraction probably won't be 100% of whatever is left. I agree with @macbill
are you guys making this oil to cook with so it can taste like weed? Im trying to make THC oil to get high off of...
can you get high of this oil? if so how much?
Hey guys I'm going to do my first coconut infusion with 9 grams of avb. Getting a coffee grinder, oil and Mason jar today. Anyone want pics of the process as well as an effect report? I aim to be medicating tonight
doing another run of this in the crockpot tonight. I did one before but with only like 3 or 4 g this time with 15g ABV and not vaped that much minor green bits even (but thats another post making sure my vape is getting correct air ventilation)
I bought the soy lethichin and have a couple tsp mixed in a mason jar in my crockpot will take it out in the morning. I haven't bought the pill container but i have a brownie mix box to use up so i may dose it into those and freeze the extras ....
will be interesting to see how many doses from the 14g
the plan is to dose myself with some of this oil / brownies in the morning before going to watch captain america !
Mod note: posts merged
potentially bad news hopefully someone maybe @macbill
coco oil + abv + soy lithicine in mason jar in crock pot overnight
while taking out dropped it and the oil mixed with the water in the crockpot
is it ruined ? ive carried out the process for now as it was only a small bit of water couple hundred ml
if not ruined how do i separate the water from the rest ?
Put all in refrigerator and cool down. Oil solidifies: easy peasy. Oil floats on water: you could re-melt, let settle, and cool down. If you cool in a bowl, after it solidifies, you could invert bowl and let the water out.
I've decided to make a batch of ginger snaps. I have some coco-oil in the fridge, but I want to enhance the oil. My recipe calls for 3/4 of a cup of shortening, so one cup of coc0-canna will suffice. I'm bringing a cup of my oil up to 225 250 so that I can add a gram of concentrate I have hanging around. I gave it 20 minutes at 225>= to decarboxylate the concentrate. I hope the cookies rock.
So I think because I added too much soy lethicin the mixture is not separated. I made it before and as you said it solidified in the fridge normally. I think the extra soy lethicin is to blame for the lighter colour.
If there isn't an idea to separate I may just pop these into ice cubes and then use them as a spread on toast with Nutella and peanut butter
I just use 1 Tbsp per cup coconut oil. I'm surprised it did not separate out. Some folks actually melt their oil in water and solidify to help remove any plant matter suspended in the oil.
