    With the alcohol method, you CAN use heat to extract the THC but you DONT HAVE to. Ppl use heat for the extraction only when they are in a rush lol, if you have the time the everclear should be able to absorb the THC on its own. I never used heat at all when I made it and It turned out great. Just let it sit in a cool dark place for a couple of months and presto! Also I would give it a good shake down every now and then.

    Heres a link on how to make it: Green Dragon Recipes (Marijuana Drink)

    Heres a few pics of whats left of my bottle :mrgreen:
    And its a liquid btw. Barely made a difference to the texture. The taste on the other hand, tasted like chewing on a bud while taking a shot of everclear lol:spew:
    OMFG does it burn on the way down lol, then your tummy gets really warm. And then everything gets REALLY pretty lol. My friend (who cant smoke, so this was his first time having weed in years) had small hallucinations from it. But I just felt AWESOME! I would suggest this to anyone thinking about trying it, but now Im thinkin this glycerin idea looks A LOT better lol.

    ok....so I spent a little time researching this. And I found out a little stuff that I found interesting. I will share that here now.

    First, there's a new PhD thesis from the Netherlands (2007) entitled Cannabis: extracting the medicine. this piece goes into astounding detail on the chemisrty of cannabis, and includes a lot of historical info. the majority of the information has been made available as a function of the dutch laws relating to cannabis and its cultivation. Chapter three deals with the extraction of the cannabinoids and related compounds at a level of detail that loses me for sure. its a 14MB download for the following site.(https://www.openaccess.leidenuniv.nl/handle/1887/12297?mode=more)

    one of the most interesting was an 1888 document entitled A Complete Formulary and Hand-Book - itemizes the old Indian tincture methodology Tinctura Cannabis Indicae - an alcohol based water bath percolation method.

    However, certainly the most interesting to me was the following:

    a reasonably detailed description of a methodology to make a glycerin based herbal tincture from a native american site. the concept is the first step (slow cooking) is extracting the enzymes, the second step (pressure cooking) is extracting the essential oils, and the third step (boiling) is extracting the trace minerals. The text provides a step by step description of the process using 100% vegetable glycerin and herb that are slow cooked, at 105 degrees for five days (not to exceed 110 degress as this destroys enzymes), pressed at high pressure with a hydraulic press (menstruum set aside), pressed herb combined with new clean glycerin/menstruum, pressure cooked for 30 minutes at 10lbs, pressed at high pressure again as before, and 2nd menstrumm mixed with the first, pressed herb combined with spring water and boiled hard for 10, then 20, then 30 minutes pressing and adding new water each time, this menstruum boiled down to concentrate and then added again to the previous to make the tincture. You can take a look at the site here (Herb Glycerine Tinctures and Salves)

    Although this is certainly more complicated, it has me wondering (from somebody that has a better understanding of these processes from a physical/chemical perspective and the chemistry of cannabis) whether this might work for our purposes.

    I am really intrigued with this approach to administration. I am a little of an fitness nut and my health status as it relates to smoking all the time has its challenges. Stealthy, highly efficient administration of clean pure dosages! I am looking forward to seeing where this might go. :blsmoke:

    im sure you could just dip your finger in the mixture in a month and taste a little and see how stoned you get. then maybe test it every week?

    WOW.Kickass i just read that food grade glycerin is also known as USP Glycerin. I was remembered seeing that at the store and saying "Nah i'm looking for veg. glycerin." wow kickass its a 4oz bottle. i'm just going to do a 1/2 of weed first. 4oz bottle of Gly. is like a little over a cup i think. Its should be plenty.so im now stoked. i'm buying it tomorrow and will be getting my 1/2 of bud tomorrow also. i will be buying a mason jar from wallyworld. i'll keep everyone posted with pics!!!! I'm going to add in a pic now of the USP gly. that i found. I'll check the forum before i leave tomorrow incase i'm doing something wrong. Someone give some input on right or wrong before i go tomorrow plz : ) Laters!

    hey Dac.....this will be cool. I was gonna say you should be able to find it like a Shopper drugmart....or some place like that but looks like you found some. good luck man. and keep us posted!

    I found another neat reference. Chapter 4 of the Antique Cannabis Book - deals with tinctures and fluid extracts.

    the USP is just a US Pharmacopeia (USP) certification, and ensures standardized quality and consistency. I do believe that is the right stuff?

    Thats what i was thinking. I ask the Pharm. while i was there and he said topical use only. But no where does it say it on the bottle.

    I guess that will work.

    I'll try it. its only 3$ for 6oz of glycerin.

    Do you think that he was right?

    i have been reading online a good bit. No where does it say that it is inedible, in fact i read that it is just a more certified veg. glycerin.

    if it says "topical use only" then i wouldn't eat it. might be really good for sore muscles though. cannabis does work in this way. use it as a rubbing ointment.:mrgreen:
