Got this from Nathaniel Morris. Hella cool guy on a CBD misssion... Helping kids with seizures with this right now... I dig it.
The Organic Ethanol Method - making a "whole plant" CBD tincture using organic ethanol.
Equipment list: Heated stir plate with magnet, Vapor hood, 800 ml glass beaker with lid, Organic ethanol, sealable vessels.
Step 1 Have your whole flower tested in order to make sure it is safe and high in CBD. Once your sure you have the right plant material, grind the flowers into a fine powder using a CLEAN coffee grinder. If the plant material is not fully dry, allow it to stay at room temperature uncovered in a low humidity environment until it is fully dry.
Step 2 Decarboxylate the plant material by wrapping it tightly in tin foil. Keep the plant material at a uniform 1 inch thickness. Put in the oven
@ 310f for 30 minutes. then remove from the oven and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to cool. Under ideal conditions CBDA will convert to CBD at a rate of 65%. Decarboxylating medical cannabis makes it psychoactive.
Step 3 Weigh the plant material before putting it in a beaker with 10 ml of ethanol for every gram of plant matter. Add a stir magnet and put on a stir plate unheated for 12 hours (6 may be enough). Make sure you cover the beaker, and leave it under a fume hood. Do not allow open flame anywhere near ethanol.
Step 4 Strain the plant matter using vacuum filtration.
Step 5 Pore the strained tincture into a clean glass beaker. leaving the lid off, boil away the ethanol until you have a pure oil. Again, leave under a fume hood at all times to avoid risk of explosion.
Step 6 Once you have boiled away the ethanol, you will have a thick oil. Transfer this oil into a sealed container and bring this oil to Halent (if possible) to be tested, weighed, and diluted in a small amount of organic ethanol to maintain stable dosing.
Here are three cost saving tricks:
1. You can substitute an oven hood for a fume hood.
2. You can substitute a coffee filter and a funnel for a vacuum filter.
3. You can use non organic ethanol during step 3. As long as you boil it away. use a small amount of organic ethanol for step 6 because that is going to be ingested.
EXTREME CAUTION- always make sure the ethanol is not Denatured. Denatured Ethanol is poison (containing methanol and isopropyl alcohol).

Oriah I have just one problem with what was said, cbda when turned into cbd does not cause it to be pyschoactivate. The pyschoactivity comes from thc. Also cbda and thca foes have it's purposes for pain relief as well as antiinflamatory properties. Without feeling high at all. Epilepsy patients prone to seizures is a delicate situation. They need stains very high in cbd and low in thc. I forget where but it has been said thc can actually cause more siezures for epilepsy patients.
All that said sounds really good can't wait to see your results please let us all know how it works out

Yeah man, im with you 100%. Nathaniel Morris is using strains that are like 25:1 CBD to THC!
But, I think you could use the same process, only not decarb it, to make a mostly non-activated version? Im diggin...

Sounds good, I can't wait to get my hands on some High cbd strains. Seems hard to do unless it's cattatonic or harlequin. Plants use to be rich in cbds but over time have been bred out to create higher thc strains. Project cbd has list of some good ones but not sure how to get a hold them unless in cali. Or some not being released to public yet anyway.
Document your process I'm sure we would all love to ser it actually done and how it works out ! Maybe do a side by side one decarbed one not.
