When cooking with cannabis, can you still feel the difference between strains and indicas/sativas

    I can definitely feel the difference between strains and have started making "single strain" batches which I find consistently deliver far less anxiety than my mixed batches.

    For anyone who has the opportunity I highly recommend eating a single strain edible, following up with a nice vape session with the same strain!

    I've been roadtesting my first batch of canna chocolate over the past week or so. The canna part comprises Lemon Haze bud (10g) and sugar leaf (13g). I simmered the LH in coconut oil - with one tablespoon of lecithin - for 3 hours in a bain marie. Ended up with about 220 grams of infused coconut oil.
    Based on a quick initial test I figured about 3.5 grams or two thirds of a teaspoon would prove highly theraputic.

    Then I made a 100g batch of chocolate. I used cocoa powder and butter, maple syrup and vanilla essence. To this I added 25g of infused coconut oil, so - 125g total batch weight. When it cooled I divided it into eight roughly 15.5g portions, each containing about 3g of the infused oil.

    Today I ate a 13.4g piece just before lunch - about 12:45 - and spent the afternoon walking in nearby countryside, on a remarkably warm and sunny day for mid-March here, before calling in at a convenient pub for a pint on the way home.

    That little piece of chocolate (delicious btw) fueled a high octane buzz that was definitely working one hour after ingestion: 13:45; was at it's strongest between 14:15 and 16:15 and then tapered off over
    the next two hours.

    So, to answer the OP's question: can you feel the difference?
    Yes, you can! - this was the quintessential sativa experience. Speedy and trippy.
    Lots of energy but not in a jittery way - it was just available when needed.
    Physical effort was eased. A relaxed, understated sense of power.
    Mild to moderate hallucinogenics. Great visuals but what really surprised me was the strong audio
    effect. Familiar sounds rendered unfamiliar and projected from seemingly random locations.

    Will certainly make some more of this. Very pleasant and easy to take, great for gifts and sharing.
    I'll also be using lecithin next time I do some infusing. There are several online advocates of this
    including our own:
    It is said to increas the 'bioavailability' of the THC, speeding up onset and hightening effect.
    Certainly works for me :)

    For comparison I'll do a similar walk in the near future using my non-lecithin Northern Lights infused
    honey and post the results here. Well, someone's gotta do this research...

    100% sativa? Never! Mostly sativa but not 100%

    I have a large kitchen and much gear. I host and help other medical people prepare their meds. All top shelf organically grown local plants. We use a highly esoteric method called "math" to know spot on how many mg are in each unit of oil and hence in each little fudge square.

    In our experience there is a noticeable difference in effect for the same dose of different strains. Not as much as vaping but it does exist.

    "Math" would be nice if you descibe this method - may be in a seperate thread?
