    Re: Decoding The Holy Grail: Terpene & Cannabinoid Retention - Decarb to Extraction

    My best guess on keif would be around 70% average cannabinoid content depending on purity.

    Infused oils are going to vary depending on the ratio of oil to product among other variables. If you short the carrier oil the concentration goes up along with the amount left behind in the unrecovered oil. I don’t know what the upper practical limit on infusions is. However it is not going to be very high, especially when compared to kief or an extract like alcohol.

    The CBD plant will probably finish drying tomorrow. It is a smallish plant and a little airy. I would like to divide it in half. Then, dcarb half and keep the other half raw. That is if there is enough to strip something near a gram of cannabinoids out of each and have enough left over for tests. I should be fine, but if it comes in as an ounce or under, I may only be able to run one decarb test.

    I made a batch of CBD caps Thursday using half the strain profile CBD I bought. I got 53 and a half caps out of 50ml of coconut oil and lecithin. They should be near 10ml per cap. I have my wife on one cap morning and night. That is about 4 times what she was taking before. I decided to try the same for myself. Subjectively speaking, I have had two slightly better than average days. Without asking, I think Chris has had slightly better days as well.

    420 has been moving things around. If someone can point me to the upload images option I will post picks.

    I never know

    How strong? My answer was yes too, but then I was curious as to potency.

    Thank you for your answers, does anybody know why or maybe a good guess on the red eye?

    Cannabinoids reduce the blood pressure. Ocular capillaries dilate, more blood flows to the eyes and intraocular pressure is reduced. This is why cannabis is so good for the treatment of glaucoma

    Re: Decoding The Holy Grail: Terpene & Cannabinoid Retention - Decarb to Extraction

    Thanks Sue,
    CBD isolate is white crystal that is usually sold as a powder. The color and oily appearance is from the terpenes. Under a loop, it does look a lot more crystalline.


    A closer look.


    The concentrate dissolved in worm oil in about a minute. What I did notice was that when the mixture was stirred in good side light it picked reflected light as swirls in the mix. It looked a lot like like it was florescent but you could tell it was reflected light.

    According to the half of the chemistry book I am working my way through, reflected light is an indication of a colloidal suspension. Nothing settled out while warm or after overnight refrigeration and rewarming. I did stir the mix while filling the caps just to be cautious. It is just an observation for now.

    I love the clean look.

    Canyon, they isolate the CBD and then add in terps equivalent to the specific strain, in proper concentration?

    That is just f'n cool.

    I am not sure how they do it. I suspect it is from super critical CO2 extraction. I have seen the red color and look in the better THC extractions.

    I was thinking, it's cool, but a touch of THC potentiates the CBD to such an extent that it's crazy not to have any in there. Wouldn't take much at all, to my understanding. You and the lovely wife probably have enough THC already in your system to do the job, but I was considering those who choose not to use THC at all.

    It's still wonderful that they're doing strain specific formulations.
