    ok so i wanted to make sure that i shared this with everyone i have been using this recipe for about 3 years now. i found it online somewhere i have no idea where. i have never been able to find it again although i have seen similar recipes. i know from personal experience that this works awesome. so here it goes.

    first you will need 1/2 ounce (or more) of dried marijuana cleaned and powdered (in a coffee grinder)

    gel cap filling machine The Cap-M-Quik Capsule Machine & Empty Capsules the cheap one is the one i have

    pure olive oil

    i am going to just copy the recipe that i saved a few years ago. from personal experience when it is replaced back onto the heat i never leave it for long because of fear of burning i burned it once and it really hurts your potency. and when you get the caps made store in the freezer this will allow them to last for a long time and the cold will pop the last bit of trichomes (sp) and make it easier to absorb if you do not freeze they will go bad and fast. i can take 4 with a meal and a few hours later i am doing well goes great with a bit of smoke or on days you won't be able to. i think those who like brownies or vapes will LOVE this recipe i swear by it.

    One half ounce of dried and cleaned marijuana ground to a fine powder in a coffee grinder is about ½ cup of powdered pot. Set the ½ cup of pot off to the side of the stove. In a SMALL saucepan or pot add 3-4 tablespoons of pure OLIVE OIL (best results with oil containing 22% of fat). Set your burner on medium, and use a candy thermometer (up to 400 degrees) to bring the oil to 350 degreed. Remove from the stove, and wait a moment until the temperature begins to fall (the temperature will most likely still rise when removed from the heat). Then add the entire ½ cup of powdered pot all at once. The oil will sizzle slightly as the reaction takes place. Stir thoroughly, making sure that the powder and oil are completely mixed. (Do not use thermometer to stir as it may break and ruin your batch of pills). If the mixture is not pasty, then carefully add more pot or oil. (Too much oil makes messy pills and too little and the pot will burn instead of bonding to the oil). Mix thoroughly, then replace on the burner on medium heat. Watch the temperature. Continue mixing until paste looks more oily at about 325 degrees. Those who have used vaporizers will recognize the smell of vapor trails that rise at about 325 degrees. As soon as the vapor appears (325 degrees) remove from the heat and mix together. Let the paste cool below 100 degrees before packing into gelatin capsules using a standard herbal gel cap machine available at most health food stores. This recipe makes about 50 of the large size pills. Common doses are in the range of 2-5 pills, depending on quality of marijuana and tolerance. Note: do not use vegetarian gel caps they will melt from exposure to olive oil.

    let me know what you think. i took some today just recently made a batch of 132 with one once will say it can be a pain in the ass to fill the caps.

    if this is done properly you will fall in love and continue to do it for the rest of your life. matter of fact this may sound gross and it is but i actually save my roaches and i never smoke them i get rid of all the charred shit and i make pills with the rest it works great and is practically free that way. but it is much better with green. works with regs really well but the better the weed the better the pill i hope you will be as amazed as i was i can't believe i never thought to put it up here until now......

    This is sorta ridiculous.. Why would you want to take pills to get high off weed? If you want to eat weed, might as well make it into some tasty morsels. This all seems like too much trouble just to pop a pill.

    Just my input.

    its actually dank
    and i dont know, taking a pill isnt that hard
    it doesnt make you cough
    and gets you high like a brownie, which feels a lot better than smoking it
    in my opinion

    hmm i'll def. be saving this thread! i'll try this out and see how it goes

    BreatheSmoke New Member

    I meant like... if you're going to consume weed in such a way, might as well enjoy a brownie rather than just pop a pill... haha I am aware that taking a pill isn't hard thanks!

    So true, so true.

    It just sounds like a weird way to get stoned off pot.. In the 8 years I've been smoking I've never even heard of it.

    diggitydank420 Well-Known Member

    I just see it as one more way to elude suspicions. :blsmoke:

    but i dont know about making them

    GrowTech stays relevant.

    Let people have their opinions about canna pills. Ignorance is bliss. I've been smoking for about 13 years and nothing has gotten me higher for longer than pills. I absolutely recommend you try them, if not make them.

    They are easy to make, and you will wake up medicated. Just don't freak too much if you're a lightweight. I've been smoking for a while and I still freak when I take strong canna pills.

    Anyways, you'll dig it, and you should try it.

    Check out Cannabrex Nutriceutical for kits to produce high quality herbal pills. You'll love it.

    Also, if you haven't tried it - don't knock it.
