HellsWindStaff's First Attempt At Coconut Oil

Hey all, I've been vaping like crazy the last month, have accumulated about an ounce of weed....I've never had any experience making this before, but through a bit of reading and research, I think I've managed to figure out how I'm going to do it. Just wanted to run through everything here, and then when I do this (probably 12/16-12/17) I'll post images of the final result.

I've never made this before, but I am fairly certain I have a method that should work, I just wanted to run through it for everyone.

  • I have 28 grams of AVB. It's not charcoal black, its not super dark, overrall its a nice mixed consistency. Some pieces are real dark, some pretty light, overrall a nice light brown/green mix whenever I grind it up to fluff.

  • I have Unrefined Virgin Coconut Oil. I also have a big mason jar. My plan is to put the fluff in the mason jar. I will fill a pot with water on the stove, and put a rag in the pot on the bottom to help protect the mason jar. I will melt down some Coconut Oil, just enough to cover all of my AVB, I don't really want any excess.

  • Then I will put this jar, in the pot of water (very warm water, but not boiling), and stirring it every 15 minutes, let it cook for the better part of an afternoon (6-8 hours). IMPORTANT QUESTION: Can I leave the lid on the jar while cooking? I was planning on it, but figured it couldn't hurt to ask.

  • I have some square ziploc storage containers, I was going to wrap a cheesecloth over the top of the mason jar, and then pour the oil into this container. Then I was going to squeeze out any excess oil from the plant matter into this container, using like gloves or sandwich bags or something to keep my hands clean.

  • I will let this sit in the refrigerator for 24 hours. Another question, but could I freeze this to make it cool faster? I saw a lot of recipes said fridge, but they also seemed to be mixing water with their oil and then they don't want that water to freeze, so the fridge makes sense. Since I won't have that excess water in my mixture, would the freezer cause issues with it just being oil?

  • Regardless, once this mixture solidifies, I was going to take a knife and segment the square of oil out into 4 columns, 7 rows, essentially 28 pieces, so I had some form of dosage. My plan was to use it mostly in coffee, and maybe make something simple like mac and cheese, so I figured this would be an easy way to eyeball out dosage.
Any help and advice would be appreciated :)

So I weighed my stash, had 25.3 so started it up at 6...figured that would be an easy number to cut into a 5x5 grid. It's pretty dark, I used minimum oil, I somewhat expect some bud to seep through cheesecloth as it is literally a powder.

So, I ended up cooking it for 6 hours, took it off the stove right at midnight and strained it through the cheesecloth, squeezed it out to get as much oil as possible, and it was a pretty dark vicious looking liquid lol, was pretty worried.

Here it is 12 hours later in the fridge.

I actually took a personal day today, so I ended up breaking into it at noon and ate 2 "chunks" (chunks should be approximately 1 gram of AVB per)

An hour later, still didn't really feel anything so ate another chunk. Here is the finished tub:

Literally started feeling it come on as soon as I started drinking the 3rd chunk. Feel comfortable right now, not too high but not quite sober either. Mild. We'll see how it is in an hour or so. I'm also hungry, but don't want to eat anything quite yet, but I was thinking that could help bring it on as well.

Haven't vaped yet today either, trying to wait as long as possible to get a base reading for how high I get off the edibles. For the record, I just took those chunks and mixed them in with cups of coffee, wasn't GOD AWFUL but certainly wasn't tastey lol. The last cup was good because I realized that I wanted a lot of coffee per chunk to mask flavor lol.

Nice write up dude! Did the effects increase at all or was the mild high the most you experienced?

After smoking, I was pretty fucking blasted :) and yesterday I casually added chunks to my coffee, and had a pretty nice body buzz going throughout the day. I think its partially my metabolism; edibles always seem to plateau at a certain point for me, and then I need to smoke to really send myself over the edge. These seem very similar.
