    Just takes time and practice George.

    Do you know I hadn't even heard the term "decarb" when I made my first two batches of RSO? :lol:

    "Damn sh*t don't work, lying internet basterds..." I said for days...

    Hang in there, lots of experts here - I'm just an "Apprentice" trying to hit "Adept" in gamers' terms. Learned everything theoretical from Skunk Pharm, everything on how to actually execute the theory right here on FC.

    :tup:

    Peace!

    I have the MB and a dose for me is 2 tablespoons if I want to be wrecked. About one tablespoon to get a good night sleep and help with pain. A capsule wouldn't be enough for me, anyway what I make. We all have different tolerances.

    The last batch I used 2 oz maybe a bit more of bud high quality and 1 oz of abv. I put mine through 3 cycles to make sure I got all the goodies out. About 20 oz coconut oil. That would have been 3 two hour cycles so a total of 6 hours. Anything more doesn't make a difference.

    I let mine set for 1 hour, so the sludge goes to the bottom. Then strain, most of the sludge stays at the bottom of the pot so leave that there. I keep my sludge and heat it up in a bag then put my foot inside, it soothes the arthritic feet, and makes my feet so soft because there is oil left behind. Eventually I throw the sludge away.

    I think going about slowly to see what doseage would be good for you. Do this when you don't need to drive or do anything important. At night is a good time to experiment, then you can just go to sleep if you use too much. Maybe a night when you aren't working the next day. I've had cannabis hangovers where I'm too tired the next morning with a very dry mouth. It takes hours to feel normal again.

    Good luck and keep trying. It can be expensive. Don't throw out your sludge before you know it turned out. You can always put the sludge and oil back in the MB and do a couple more cycles and add more decarbed cannabis.

    Edit
    I don't know about the CBN I just wanted to make sure I got all the goodies out. It's potent enough for me and I need a little more than 100 mg THC to work for medicine.

    No wonder it knocks me out. I mainly use this at night anyway. I made some banana bread with this oil and it was awesome.

    What Are The Benefits Of Cannabinol (CBN)?
    Cannabis is widely used as a sleep-aid for those who suffer from insomnia and cannabinol is the reason why. By all accounts, CBN is the cannabinoid responsible for the sedative effects of cannabis. Because of this, I tend to reserve high-CBN strains for night use.

    @CarolKing I read somewhere that if you cook cannabis too long then the THC converts to CBN which is not what we want. Was my mistake following their recipe 160F for 2 hours?

    Good tip about waiting an hour for the sludge to settle before straining.

    Not even close at that low of a temp, generally. (see Skunk Pharm's website for decarb chart of time v temps)

    You won't even get a good decarb at that temp, unless you are using abv.

    CarolKing knows her stuff, if you follow her recipe(s) exactly you should be good to go!

    you guys make medibles .. too complicated..

    SO decarb... Best rule of thumb is 40 mins at 220 in the oven in a sealed mason jar .. burp after first 20 mins. boom done, i made yesterday ---- http://imgur.com/a/afsVq
    Unless u have pockets of money then buy this http://www.ardentcannabis.com/
    Skunks chart is meh... Ardent guys use the other rule of thumb for lower longer decarb 100/100 meaning 100c (212f) for 100 mins..

    Did I lose potency by decarbing at 235f for 35 minutes in a foil covered baking pan?

    I think the biggest downfall to the MB2E is the Minimum amount of liquid
    I think @CarolKing too much coconut oil i think for potency

    @George1151 thats what i told ya :p

    I agree about the min 2 cups being a drag. I would have preferred making a lot less but stronger. Maybe they design their recipes to yield 10mg THC per ml, or they realized after it was on the market that 2 cups of oil would require 3 or 4 ounces and nobody would buy it. I read somewhere that they are coming out with a smaller version but I wanted one now.

    @George1151 Actually this deters me from buying one... you would definitely need a FEW ounces to make i potent enough with 2cups of oil

    @CarolKing http://imgur.com/a/aseac
    This is 10grams of bluedream(21%THC) mixed with 10g of 17%cbd cannatonic. approx 10%/10%
    in about 1/2 a cup of coconut oil.

    ONE of the full bullets knocked me out last night, Half seems good for days.. (this is swallowing it, i try under tongue tomorrow..)

    Ialso @CarolKing don't know if you did or not ..but try Sunflower Lechtiin mixed into your oil.. it will increase potency

    I always use the sunflower lecithin dry granular type. I bought it off Amazon. I had a hard time finding it at the local stores.

    I would like to see a MB that you could make various amounts. The way it is now it can be costly trying to figure things out. If you mess up the decarb process the whole batch can be useless. Make sure your ovens are the correct temp too. Ovens sometimes vary.

    Decarb: Lately I've been using the 240 degrees for 40 min. Some folks do 220 degrees for an hour. I wrap mine in aluminum foil. Yes will will smell up the house. Fry some bacon afterwards a good smell to cover up and it tastes good.

    My post above if I remember right I needed to add a bit of extra coconut oil because it was too thick with weed with the added abv. The MB won't start a cycle if not enough liquid. I probably used twenty four ounces of coconut oil.

    saved almost 2 oz's of AVB. Wanted to conduct an experiment with a friend to determine if it was worth while saving/cooking AVB. She made cookies and charged me half the batch as payment.

    The result? outstanding!! definitely the most potent edible i've ever had! the other day, i ate 2 cookies between 11pm and 1230am... i woke up at 8am and could barely move. could barely open my left eye... got to work and i was stoned! couldnt shake it till after 2 in the afternoon!!

    kind of fucked up my day, but the potency was off the charts. AVB is definitely beneficial!
