My woman's brain tells me the same thing. I was NOT breaking ti up when I was using the MB2, bc it grinds it up pretty well.
I find the MB2 nearly impossible to use for making oil. Cleaning it out always frustrated me. And straining it with their bag was an exercise in exasperation. Haven't tried it for tincture yet. When I do I'll follow Canna Montana's lead and leave it sit untouched for a couple weeks. Lol!

When you make brownies, you leave in the plant material? I made "potsagna" one time. I added full buds to the sauce (didn't know about decarbing at the time) and then to the ricotta mixture. A bunch of my friends and I had such a good time.
Potsagna sounds delicious! Hmmmm.... May have to give that a go when I get moved.

I find that sometimes with the plant material, I've had tummy troubles, and other times, not. Any thoughts on that?
It could be a couple things; some people are sensitive to the barbs on the edges of the cannabis leaves. They don't look all that problematic on the plant, but if they aren't being broken down before eating they may be bruising the stomach walls.

It also may be that you're sensitive to a terpene, which would explain why it doesn't happen all the time, but then the stomach may not always be so sensitive every time either. Of the two I'd think it's more likely the barbs are giving you trouble.

I remember my swimming days.....
Every day, for a long time.
If I was feeling well, I didn't stop at my daily (2-3000 meters) goal.
Now I walk alot. 7-8 km a day.
Work out gives me munchies if I haven't a "eat on time" schedule.

I'm 60 swim almost every day 2-3K mostly at 1/2 race or race pace. Feel better than ever now that I increased my reps. Kinda counter intuitive but true. After I got used to the sore muscles of course. Tincture and Comfrey Salve are my friends now.

If I get sore now its from bad form in the water. Still use tincture and salve and dont forget vitamin supplements and um yeah, my pre-swim ritual which ends with puffage.

It's not a OCD ritual per-se, I don't think or is it? I think that's where the puff puff helps out. I can tell myself its not OCD and its not. Problems solved. :48:

Do you measure the cannabis trim, and does yours contain popcorn buds like Brix’s does? Since you’re using the process as much to use up trim as anything else it doesn’t much matter, I’m just curious about how much you use.

I watched Brix make a batch of oil in a huge pot on the stove over three days with 2 cups of coconut oil and two huge bags of trim in water. I’d never seen oil made like that before, in the same way I’ve never made tincture with anything other than top buds.
Yes all the trim and popcorn. I save it all too, well most of it.

I weigh the cannabis and break it up pretty good by hand - not ground but flaky I'd say. Rub it between my hands like the old school hash making deal.

This batch I did 30+ish grams and about 12oz of ever clear. After the double boiler thing I got about 8 oz of tincture. It's good. I can feel it with a 1/2 a dropper easy.

I'm WU with the Green Dragon.

.

I did the double boiler 3rd step so I didn't have to wait cept for mixture to cool! lol

I've got some that we left sit for 1 year and 2 years. They taste slightly better or is that bitter. I'm not sure now.

Decarb on a sheet or whatever in the oven, take out let cool into mason jar cover with everclear - put int double boiler and 20min @ 170F with thermometer. Done.
You will see the everclear bubbling ..... (no gas stoves please).. when that stops its done. Will take about 20 minutes.

I am happy to hear swimming helps, and I intend to start again. Hopefully with some meds for after.
The reason for me moving to warmer climate 20+years ago, was severe pain when weather was cold.
Now, after "discovering" canna meds, there is no reason for me to live here anymore.

Wow! Thank you so much for all of that. I really appreciate your responses

Thanks B.B. :5: Always looking for something to play with. Lol!

When Canna made hers she inadvertently let it sit for two weeks and the resultant gummies were far more potent than she anticipated, based on previous runs where she cooled and strained.

It plays into the mystery we haven’t yet solved of why you get higher with decarbed buds than you will smoking undecarbed and letting all the decarb come from the heat applied at administration.
