    Basically starting this thread for a family member and anyone else who would like to follow the comments and advice, the family member in particular suffers from Fibromyalgia, Polymyalgia, Insulin dependent diabetes, Arthritis and after being prescribed multiple medication its started affecting the liver. I'm looking at advice on canna caps, RSO oil, any treatment you can recommend, the reactions or problems that may occur when mixing medical marijuana with prescription drugs. I'd love to hear advice/personal experiences from everybody world wide. Recommended dosages etc, I've read a lot of advice from the internet but would love to hear first hand. Hopefully this thread can begin a community and help others who are looking for the same answers, to give advice and to get together and share experience!

    Once you make the concentrate oil mix it up with organic coconut oil to make capsules. Have you decided on what solvent you'll use for the extraction process? Since it's for edibles, I'd go for 151 or higher proof clear grain alcohol.

    Thanks for the heads up! I've toyed with the idea of making it and will be having a go soon, will make sure I'm fully clued up first so will definitely take the advice on board. I've ordered some different types in before I try myself so far I've got some '100mg critical RSO & Hemp CBD extract' & '25 mg organic rosin capsules' on the way. Its completely new to me so I'll be glad of any advice.

    Whenever anyone makes medicinal oil for the first time they have a realization how easy it was. Soak herbs for 5-10 minutes, separate with cheese cloth or silk screen and then evaporate the alcohol and water. A digital hot plate is helpful.

    Hello All.
    RSO - 100 proof or higher alcohol for a solvent, dry and break up bud, soak 5-10 minutes, strain/squeeze/dispose of remains, put solvent mix into rice cooker or over digital hot plate in open area - like outdoors on a back porch the fumes are horrible. Every so often add a few drops of water to help keep molecules moving around. Don't let it burn or get to hot as it get to the bottom where your oil will be. Once proper consistency suck into syringes and store in cool dry place.
    When I start someone on a regimen I start with 1 grain of rice sized portion, either in a cookie or behind the teeth, cold water will help solidify it in your mouth swallow DO NOT CHEW. That would be for one week time, then up the dosage the next week to 2 grains of rice, by week 4 they should be at about a dime size dose, by week 6 back it down and week 8 all done.
    First timers will find it a strong buzz and may sleep for 12 hrs after. Moderate tokers will notice it after the 3 grain dose.

    Infused Coconut Oil - Organic Coconut Oil (enough to cover the material only) dry and break up bud, put in crock pot on High, cover with coconut oil, set timer for 2 hrs, if oil starts boiling turn down to low, should be a slow simmer, after 2 hrs strain with cheese cloth but do not squeeze - you may get flake or a chunk in the oil. Pour into final container and scrap pot clean.
    Infused coconut oil can be used to replace the oil in any and all recipes, from baked good to stir fry dinner.

    Muffins recommended for beginners to start with a half a muffin and go from there. (infused oil)
    I make brownies out of infused oil infused with RSO for my patients and myself - they are very strong, strength depends on how much RSO added into the infused oil. Also you have to double boil the infused oil and add the RSO then mix well for 15 minutes over medium heat, let cool so it doesn't cook the eggs and put into the brownies and mix up, some vanilla extract and extra chocolate chips will cover some RSO flavor.

    Cannabutter - For me it is too flowery tasting so I don't make it anymore but its easy too.
    Boil 1 gallon water, turn down to simmer, add 1lb butter and 1 OZ dry and broken up bud, simmer up to 2 hrs, take off heat, cool in fridge, peel off cannabutter when cold, store in fridge, use within a week. MD

    Substitute Infused Oil for Coconut Oil on the first 2. Hope this helps out MD.

    It does seem to be fairly straight forward, when I’ve got the next harvest I’ll definitely give it a go the equipment needed is minimal to what I first expected. Im sure they will agree when it begins to make a difference and help cut back on the pain killers and muscle relaxants. I’m confident it will give them some great results

    First attempt tonight of taking RSO tonight. She hasn't taken her muscle relaxant medication to see if there is a difference and she has decided to give it a go before bed to sleep through any effects while building a tolerance and gradually start in the day, all tips and advice received gratefully. Big thanks to Groove Salad getting these out so quickly starting the journey quickly, due to high blood pressure and diabetes after a bit of research I'd recommend anyone in the same boat monitors blood pressure & blood sugars regularly as there are likely to be changes in your regular readings. I'll post an update tomorrow to let you know how her first night goes!
