Until it stops bubbling. I decarb'd rosin yesterday, and it took about 20 minutes. Flower takes 1hr 50 minutes. Your oil can take that, or longer depending on the water content. You need to check it every 10-15 minutes after the first half hour.

Easy like Sunday morning...
Thought I’d toss this up since I was making it. :high-five:
Purple kush “coconut oil” for edibles... gummies!
Enjoy friends.
1 cup cold pressed coconut oil.
1 large table spoon of sunflower lecithin
1/4 - 1 oz bud (pick your flavor and strength).
I’d go easy if it’s not for yourself... combined into a cookable glass jar. Wrap foil around top of jar, so pressure can reach the mixture (no jar lid), but the steam and moisture can't.
Place in instapot with water surrounding 1/2 the jar. Also use the metal buffer that came with it to keep it off the instapot bottom that can get to hot or bounce and crack.
Instapot slow cook 3 hrs. Allow depressurization and let cool to room temp.
Strain and enjoy. Don’t forget to squeeze the hell out of that cooked bud. You’ll find tons of uses for this infused oils.
Store in freezer...

I followed and made oil, however I'm confused as people say it should have been purged until powder and then made to goo, I followed exactly these instructions however I'm vaping not eating, mixing with peg 400 and some pg, vg but the high just isn't doing it for me, I crnt go back to burning as my health isn't In no state to be smoking herb but I miss the high so very much, I'm wandering if the rice cooker for evaporation is maybe loosin me some potency, maybe just a warm oil bath until its all gone, but why is mine gooey liquid rather than shatter, it's in a shringe and its very hard to remove some maybe I need to flatten the goo and freeze for shatter, I'm mixing with peg and the glass is becoming so sticky which is obviously not ment to be happening but I'm unsure how to avoid or make my oil more potent can anyone advice me further

It's possible that your oil is not fully de-carbed.

I use a rosin press for extraction, de-carb, mix with coconut oil, and put it into capsules. The capsules take an hour or more to hit, but I can get high from them. I usually only take one which is the equivalent of 1/6 to 1/4 of a gram of flower.

I didn't think decarb was necessary if I was goin to be vaping my oil, Its a bloody nightmare and I'm wasting good quality buds, I don't like the high from editables I feel like I'm walking In moon boots lol I'm so fustrated when I'm suppose to be so high and relaxed

When smoking, temperatures get very high, and the time the cannabinoids are exposed to those temperatures is longer than when you use a vaping device. That's why I recommend de-carbing for material to be vaped.

Another possibility is that your e-juice is not potent enough. A typical joint may me 3/4 gm, and is consumed in 10-20 draws. A ml of e-juice is good for anywhere from 10 to over a hundred draws, depending on what you use to vape. If your atomizer is one where the liquid has to permeate a ceramic core, that core may also filter out the cannabinoids. Try a tank with cotton coils or an RDA.

I've been vaping on and off for over 15 years. I mix my own e-juice. My go-to tank is the original Aspire Nautilus with a C-Cell ceramic coil. I use the Wismac Rouleaux box mod in temperature control mode with this setup. I may be wrong, but I think my suggestions have some merit.

I'm happy to try anything I'm very new to this e liquid mixing, I'm using a freemax twister that's a cotton wick I beleive temps can vary on it, I also don't think iv been letting it mix long enough in the liquidizer, but I'm also adding 70/30 eliquid juice for flavour and smell since it's for the public to not be detecting lol I made another one up just now with concentrate liquidizer and 70/30 let it sit in a simmering oil bath about 15mins seems potent enough now lol I crnt get my head around it all so sorry to be a pain

It's not being a pain. Asking questions is the only way to learn.

I really don't want to give in n smoke again that's the thing so many different opinions ect makes it Confusing for newbies
I understand your frustration. It sounds like you’re getting there though. The final consistency has a lot to do with how much alcohol you can evaporate. It also has a great deal to with the quality of the product, whether you’re using trim or bud, and how long (and hard) you wash - sorry, I wasn’t meaning to make it sound like a 70s porno... The harder you shake the more green you get. I normally let it sit in a drawer, flattened out on a silicon pad, for several days to help evap the rest of the alcohol and allow it to harden on its own. It usually gets to a better consistency.

Are you using only trim?

Nob question:
Can one use fan leaves or sugar leaves with this Everclear/grain alcohol and produce a exceptable product? Yes I know there is not much THC in it but I would like to try to make some with the trim I have been saving and don't want to be wasting my time. I have made brownies in the past for fun with the a lot of trim and it did the trick.......Thanks
