Same thing as your brownies just takes lots of product. If you don't have a still to reclaim your alcohol it can become mighty expensive.
I'd say it's okay to use frosty sugar leaves but I definitely wouldn't waste the alcohol on fan leaves. I made gummy bears from fan leaf oil and it took 18 bears before anyone felt a thing! Now the fans go to skin salve.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
How many grams of bud did you use to make the shatter? So for this recipe you used just under 2 grams of shatter and made 30 capsules yes? Any idea of the MG strength?Hello friends! My little trip got shortened due to really bad weather. Drove 4 hours in blizzard conditions. Not the brightest move I've made, but not close to the worst. :tokin:
Anywayz, here's what I did with my blob of very nice trichomes. Enjoy!
I weighed out the blob, because I can:
I separated the blob into two smaller blobs to fit in my silicone containers, and put them in my toaster oven at 250F for 10 minutes:
While that is going on, I measured out ~one cup of coconut oil and put it on the heat to melt. I also use one teaspoon of lecithin per cup.
When 10 minutes was complete on the toaster oven I checked and things were still bubbling so I put it on for another 5 minutes and watched it closely. In another 3 minutes it had stopped bubbling so I know it's decarb'd:
Then, I simply add the containers to the coconut oil. *Caution! Hot!
Then, it's just a matter of filling capsules. I made 30 and took 3 immediately. I'm vibrating nicely! :tokin:
I only used about 30ml since each capsule contains 1ml. And, since there's 236ml per cup I'm set for a few days. The leftovers go in the fridge for later.
Now, this is a pretty strong batch. I'm comfortable knowing that 3 capsules will rock my world. That may be too much for some and not enough for others. You know the deal. You need to experiment to find your sweet spot. I hope this was helpful!
The mg/ml of cannabinoids is dependent upon your source material. I went for a match to what I was previously using.How many grams of bud did you use to make the shatter? So for this recipe you used just under 2 grams of shatter and made 30 capsules yes? Any idea of the MG strength?
I am wondering if I use the alcohol repeatedly on different batches of fan leaves (I am not in a hurry to make shatter) Say I have a batch of leaves from last year in the freezer and soak it in Ever clear and just use the alcohol again on another batch and so on till I feel its time to evaporate the alcohol and make shatter would this improve the strength? Leaving the THC/CBD in ever clear unprocessed should not do any harm?Same thing as your brownies just takes lots of product.

Only one way to find out - a small test batch.I wonder if the sun removes the color but not the taste. It's like when my wife fills her teacup with water and bleach to get the stains out without washing it first. It takes out the color but the tea oils remain on the walls until the cup is scrubbed.
