So if I was in Safeway what isle would I be in to find Soy lecithin?
I go blind when I'm looking for any thing LOL!!
Thanks in advance.
nah not gonna find it there... least not in the local ones here.. had to go to a health food store........ BUT before you waste the $$ is it to enhance/speed up the pills or edibles? It did nothing for me whatsoever (very high tolerance perhaps this is why)
you may not have the same experiences as I did
I'm just getting every thing I can out of the herbs and I don't know about high tolerance, I only smoke a gram or two every day could that do it??
Theres a bunch of people here that wants me to show them how to make budder and oils and I want to know what I'm doing
Health food stores.
The lecithin increases the digestive systems ability to absorb fats. So they make it easier for your body to access the thc. It usually carries over effect-wise into a faster onset with a little bit more strength. I know people who claim my batches of butter were no different with and without lecithin, and others who refuse to eat anything without the lecithin in it because of the increased potency. Our digestive systems all work the same way(save rare-case abnormalities), so it's not that the lecithin didn't do what it's supposed to, but I have no idea why some people don't notice any difference with it.
You have to put it into the butter AFTER you make it though.
I follow this recipe:
Fantabulous Crock Pot Cannabutter w/Soy Lecithin
except that I cook for 8 hours, not 24, and I put 2oz high quality bud/trim or 4oz low quality trim per lb of butter. Comes out to 40-50 servings per lb, and since most recipes call for 1/4 lb, that's 10-12 servings per batch.
I would recommend that you look for a non GMO lecithin. A lot of soy is Genetically Modified so you don't need that. Lecithin is a Lipid. Lipids are a fatty acid. It is often is used in cooking as an emulsifier, or bonding agent. Chocolates are creamer, a pudding smoother, etc. Lipids can be mad to form liposomes. It like a bubble that raps itself around something else. It called Liposomal Encapsulation Technology (LET). There has been extensive work with supplements and medicines using LET in recent years. The Lipid is not destroyed by stomach acid and and allow materials that would normally be destroyed by stomach acid to pass right through the stomach and and intestines straight to the blood stream and pass through the cellular wall.
In all methods I've seen using lecithin and cannabis this is attempted with heat. All other methods that I have seen, which are vitamins and minerals work to break down the size of the lecithin creating liposomes and bonding them to the material (I use Vitamin C). This is achieved (at home) through the use of a ultrasonic cleaner, I have read of some who use paint sprayers to break the liposome down even further and have a even better (this is similar to manufactures methods). Here is the basic process I use http://www.racehorseherbal.com/Infections/LET/let.html, just scan down to the video.
Now I've not found anywhere that uses heat for this bounding. As a matter of fact most avoid heat due to it destruction of the medicine. I have research and found one article on LET using alcohol and Stevia with lecithin http://f1.grp.yahoofs.com/v1/8O6jTxOW9feOhLIGhTwSOa3p4kz0_QPtO0PuIR1OuNeyB0DowZ Hm6WbZ1dT6hq5bjDWmqrytKnXfBzo6M1F4AWrgHHs1mV8/ethanol%20in%20liposome%20mixtures.pdfhttp://f1.grp.yahoofs.com/v1/8O6jTxOW9feOhLIGhTwSOa3p4kz0_QPtO0PuIR1OuNeyB0DowZ Hm6WbZ1dT6hq5bjDWmqrytKnXfBzo6M1F4AWrgHHs1mV8/ethanol%20in%20liposome%20mixtures.pdf
I yet to digest it and frankly think it might be above my pay grade. If you have a chemistry background would look this over it may have cross application.
FWIW........... take the extra 10-15$ and rather then buy some lechtithin get 1-2 g of keif this is surely going to increase your high as well.. (and that I can promise unlike the lech

It was about the same as crock pot budder in the end results, no bad taste and the buzz was the same.
The difference was it was alot less of a mess and hassle as making crock pot budder with 1/2 oz per cube.

It's very confusing and the more I read the more I get confused.
Theres some good threads on cooking and reasons for doing different things to the herb, but
theres some that you need a PHD to read thru or the person can't stay on track and there for neither can I.
Then there's the BSers that have no idea but have to say some thing just for increesing their post count.
I only know enough to be dangerous ha ha.
check out this link drtsurfer.. give me a minute to find the link, but it's a really good read... brb..
