I love growing, but I have too much: what to do?

When you’re making tinctures, with too much weed as your problem, ignore the recipes! I’m waiting on 4 Oz dry/ 750ml 190 EVERCLEAR to finish 3 months of sitting in a cool dark place. I also did 4 Oz if ABV/ 750 ml 190 EVERCLEAR! Just roll your extra into tinctures!

Has anyone run into this yet? I did my very first ever grow with two plants and had a reasonable harvest. About 7 and a half ounces. Right now my wife is abstaining and this is enough to last me probably a year. Having said that, I am hooked on the gardening and have already bought a bigger tent and bigger LED light to fit, but if I start another grow (which I am itching to do) I'm going to have way more than I need. I'll turn some into some strong oil (it takes a HUGE amount for edibles to work for me) and after that, I'm at a loss.

I am in a backwards state and I'm not going to sell it and I don't have any local relatives who use, so has anyone else had this problem?
Dude make butter, make your own rosin. so much to do. Did you grow stellar ass weed your first grow?? I say this because each grow you get better and better and if you had 7 zips from your first plant, Id say you have stellar growing skills so why not put those to good use :) Heres my problem.....Time.....I dont have time as bad as I think I have it I dont. Moving in July and even If I ran an auto I dont think I would have time , damn maybe I do have time. All I need to do is hang light back up in my 3by3 that for some reason I havent broken down yet and packed away.......4/11 to 6/11 ish .........nope, I remember this guy last summer who had to cut his plant early and take it with him to dry and cure. Id rather just wait until I move and get my setup right to grow perpetually. You can store weed for a year and longer if cured right. Also, You will run out in 6 months not a year. Thats almost a given...jus sayin GL, Ive rambled long enough lol

I am going to make some gummies for my wife, but edibles do nothing for me. 10mg sends her to the moon and 300mg barely touches me. I did just order an STX 420 infuzer that has a setting for tinctures, so I'm going to try that. I'm just nearing harvest on 3 plants that I think should give me 10 ounces, so I'd better get busy.

Here’s what I do with my flower. I have a Nug Smasher mini and that’s all you need . 2 ton heat press and make your own rosin. I wish I had a few extra jars laying around , I’d be pressing like a champ . Right now I press 3.5 grams and that gets my by for 3 or 4 days depending. I wanna have enough that I can actually play with temps / time / weight , etc . Every press seems to get better and better

Never tried doing dabs. I have another harvest with 3 plants and this time I got about 6oz smokeable and two more to make hash/edibles/tinctures from one plant. Another plant was crap and only got about two halfway smokeable zips and 3 more that will have to be made into something else. Still have one more plant in the tent waiting to be harvested. I got a butter/oil/tincture machine and already did gummies for the wife. I need to try the tincture setting and see how that works.

No because I would sell

Ok, this is wrong :rolleyes: but I have a friend who buys part of my grow. I sell it only to him, and he loves the price. I know, you’ll write me in prison. LOL

I wouldn't say that. Everyone has their own comfort level. Personally, I think this plant should be 100% legal and I shouldn't be any more afraid to grow cannabis than I would growing tomatoes. I personally won't sell because of the consequences and so I'm going to be making a bunch of bubble hash and I'm going to see if tinctures will work for me since edibles don't.
