Shrooms bottom ? or your abv turn grey ?

Mid is just more concentrated than top, or it's a different oil ?

Yeah those are made with a few different mushrooms!

Mids are ~100mg and the top is ~25mg. Same batch, but diluted further.


Going, going, gone?

Was also thinking Daytime, Nighttime, and Party Time 😁😁😅

So after extensive research (10 minutes on Google) to make cbn from thc and after reading quite a bit of conflicting data I settled on baking feco at 305° for 60 minutes to make sleep inducing capsules.

I just filled 4 capsules at approximately 50mg for testing, and I'll post my results in the coming days.

BTW in my research I found 10mg of cbn equals a 20mg valium. I thought that was pretty cool. Without testing though I'm not sure how much cbn my capsules have.

Cbn, as thc degraded, isn't far from it.
Cbn is partial cb1/2 agonist, when thc is a full one.
Thc is known to compete with benzo, as it plays with agmydala.
Cbn will play the same, without excessive stress (sympathic stimulation), which lead to a more sedative effect.

My long cure bud are full of cbn, don't know how much though.
Some will found them less heavy (partial agonist only), but they are so good for bedtime...

But Maybe some hiden effect.
Like penicilin dicovery, a long maturation..

Well so far so good. I slept 9.5 hours, getting up twice to let our elderly dog out. It took 45 minutes to get to sleep, about normal for me. After letting our dog out I got right back to sleep.

At the onset the top of my head felt numb. My wife said her tongue felt thick. We both became sleepy within an hour or so.

I'm still a bit groggy, 10 hours later, but I think I'll cap the rest as is, but I'll add some drops of terpenes that I forgot to add yesterday. Coffee should cure the groggies.

For a formula, I mixed 3.70g of feco that I baked 1 hour at 305°F with 6 grams of ground indica that went through 2 decarb cycles in our Nova fx and a tsp of liquid lecithin and filled to 70ml with coconut oil.

I calculate roughly 50mg per capsule and they feel like it. I'm sure 40mg would have been enough. I make daytime capsules 40-50 mg on average.

You might consider curing your concentrate with UV light for a week or so to help force the oxidation to occur.

UV light is one method I read about, along with an iodine treatment, along with heat, like I used.

The trouble is there isn't a lot of data, like light intensity, temps and so on. There is more data on using heat, but that is all over the place. I read to use 300°F to 360°F and for 15 minutes to one hour. I used 305° and one hour just to test. I don't know the sweet spot.

We have to keep in mind cbn will degrade as well, so we can overdue it. It would great to have hard, tested data, but I suspect it's proprietary nowadays as labs work for dispensaries.

I've tried these capsules twice now, same results, a full night's sleep.

My observation though is the "buzz" is more like a narcotic than a MJ buzz IMHO. I'm not sure everyone would like it because it is pretty heavy. I guess now I see why cbn is compared to valium.
