    so its gettin close to Christmas, and i want to give my dad some cannabis honey. i figured if it is sold t clubs, i can make it as well instead of paying $25 for a tiny jar

    I was perusing through the internet and came across a recipie that calls for making a tincture, letting the alcohol evaporate(like making oil) over the cource of a week and then combining the reduced substance with warm honey.

    that sounds pretty easy to me, but i still have a few questions.

    1. do i need to dry the shake and mids im using in the tincture?(i prolly sound like a broken record)

    2. what percentage/proof of alcohol should i use? iv made canna-butter before and also canna olive oil, and a shot of brandy(usually E&J, im sure i could do better though) or vodca(even though i hate vodca) seems to do the trick when cooking, but will it do the same as a tincture? I usually prefer brandy as aposed to vodca because the sugar mixes better when cooking. is there anything better?

    but yeah i was just seeing if anyone has tried to make infused honey. hope to hear some stories about how things came out. and ill be updating as i get this done.

    Is Honey THC soluble? I read that you will need to add some sort of other agents to it like lecithin or oil.
    I would imagine you would have to heat the honey up not sure the boiling point or if that would make honey spoil (it wont normally)

    what you're talkin about is a suspension....

    the alcohol initially extracts, then you vaporize the alcohol off and add honey.

    yes you need dry shake.

    use atleast 150 proof.

    as stated dry trim or/ and bud.use grain(everclear) alcohol to extract oil.put in double boiler n evaporate by 1/2. add equal parts honey and 3-5 vitamin e-gel caps(puncture n squeeze out). reduce alcohol to zilch. i,ve not been able to get all grain out but, im an alcoholic that doesn,t drink, so, u shouldn,t have any problems with that. be patient, as it can take a while to do it right. use very low heat...pm me if you have any questions...i make for my father also, he loves it....peace brim
