    I'm looking for an easy, inexpensive way to "filter" some bud.

    It would needed for a couple methods:
    1. infusing ABV or virgin bud in coconut oil. Small loads like 5- 8 grams and want something where it's
    easy to get the coconut oil squished out at the end from the wet buds. Especially for ABV, it would have to
    contain powder.

    2. something for possibly "water curing" 5-8 grams. Something like a big tea bag??? I'm thinking of doing like 7 distilled water soaks, change each day, but not pressing the wet herb between each soak. FYI, pressing out all the water on each cycle seems to be the recommended practice BUT why break up all the trichs?? Then a very low dry in the oven at 120 F. Then infuse in oil after the water cure has removed the heavy smell/taste. Hopefully get some neutral tasting oil :)

    Thanks, that might work well for water curing. They are way big BUT look like they can fold down for fitting in something like a 1 pint glass canning jar with water .

    For pressing small amounts try a lever action garlic press.

    Google tea infusers.

    Once you have done your water cure, skip the oven dry and just add coconut oil to the wet cannabis then cook for your decab.
