    So I tried making some green dragon, can't tell if I did it right. I decarbed 7g of Reggie and mixed with 12 oz of everclear in a mason jar and heated the Mason jar on the stove for 20 min on low and the mixture turned out a dark brownish green. I've tried it twice and it seems to take a long time to kick in, the first time I tried it I smoked afterward and the second time I fell asleep before I really felt anything.

    7g of reg might only have 1g or less of actual THC in it. Means you'll have to drink 0.5 - 1 oz or more to really feel much. How long did you decarb for?

    Well I just mixed about 10ml in a Gatorade and drank it. Probably 20 min ago or so. Definitely feeling the effects lol.

    Green dragon recipes tell you to infuse for 20 mons but magic butter machine say 4-8 hrs... why the difference. Whuch method is better?
    I also notice the weed:solvent ratios are way different for both methods. Is this the reason for the cooktime difference?

    I have no idea man idk how a magic butter machine works but no offense dude this is my thread and your comment is off topic so can you please go start your own thread instead of hijacking mine.

    Thats a pretty related question for general discussion... far from a hijack.. and see the thing is just because we start a thread doesnt really give us individual ownership of it, its a group of collective thoughts, opinions and questions... its "ours" as an online community...

    Its one thing if someone strays to a whole different topic anyone could make that as a polite suggestion but thats not a privledge only of tbe OP.

    I was interested in the thread until i seen how rude you were to a person who posted a very related question that wasnt specifically to your liking. By a new member at that! Hell of a way to welcome them. In my opinion, which truly has no real weight, you owe @Iwantcolumbia an apology.

    Well shit I wasn't trying to piss anyone off but I did feel the question was off topic though. In my view what I think happened is this guy read my description of how I made my green dragon, saw the infusion time and it made him think about the time differences so he thought ok to post a question about it. Which I guess is not as bad as I made it seem and you're right I was being kinda rude and I am sorry. I guess I just kinda felt like my question was answered so any other questions, no matter how seemingly relatable, would pretty much be off topic no matter what. But I didn't realize I was coming across so rudely.

    Honestly I just saw the time you cooked the tincture for and related it to other recipes and questioned the cook time. simple as that.

    After thinking about it some, I realized this. Solvents extract at a much faster rate than lipids do. I actually read somewhere that solvents do most of the extraction in the first 3 minutes (when heated, not for a room temp wash, those take anywhere from a week to a month).

    So the first few times I tried this stuff, it took about 20 dropper fulls to have an effect. But I was recently reading about citric acid and marijuana so I went to Walmart and bought some citric powder and added a few tablespoons to my mixture and all I can say is wow. Today I put 6 dropperfuls in some Gatorade and I started feeling the effects within a few minutes. Idk whether the citric acid decarbed more of the THC-A that was in the tincture, or if the citric acid is just helping me absorb it more easily but either way I'm stoned lmao.

    Well although the effects came on faster, they weren't as intense and didn't last as long.

    So i just tried making green dragon too

    9.5g decarbed and mixed with 220ml of everclear. I dont think i decarbed lobg enough because its very green. Apparently it should be more brownish green. Tastes super bitter too.

    I did the water bath for 25 mins but the alcohol boiled at times.

    I think the boil rendered it bitter and i dont think i decarbed enough.

    I just took about 1.5ml. Its been about 45 mins and not feeling much yet...


    Have you made more since ur OP? Any better results?

    Just because you started this thread does NOT mean you "own" it or can decide what can be written.
    After you were so rude to that new member, NO ONE CARES about how your stuff is! Even after you were told about it, you just went on & on about yourself and your stuff. That's conceited to the max. You should have apologized instead.
