Has anyone tried direct infusion?

    I am thinking direct infusion could be a very simple and conservative way to ingest cannabis. Here is the process I am thinking of. Decarbing it in the oven at 240 fahrenheit for 30-40 minutes, then grinding into a fine powder. Melting a teaspoon of coconut oil in the microwave, and using a very small spoon (like a snuff spoon) and adding that amount of weed to the melted coconut oil, then cooling it till it hardens and ingesting it directly. The first time I try it I will need to wait an hour and see how I feel before deciding whether a stronger dose is needed but I don't think it will be as 3-4 hits of Reggie is usually enough to get me baked. And since the thc in the weed will be more concentrated after decarbing, and none of it will be wasted as with smoking, I think this small amount directly infused will have a wonderful effect. Any thoughts?

    Small amount being...a gram? An eighth? How much bud are you using here? And as long as you properly decarb the bud you can put it in whatever the hell you want

    Let me correct myself...put it in anything fatty and oily that you want, coconut oil is great...another cheap shitty ghetto way to make edibles is to make firecrackers...although they seem to give me more of a body high than anything

    You don't know what a snuff spoon is? Also, who would mix a gram of weed with a teaspoon of oil? I wasn't asking for permission I was asking if anyone had tried direct infusion and what the results were. If I don't smoke anywhere near a gram to get high then I shouldn't need to ingest a gram of decarbed weed to get high either. A quarter ounce of Reggie lasts me months. I didn't smoke for 11 years, then I started smoking again this past winter. Now my frequency of usage varies but it's probably never less than 3-4 times a week. And I've spent at the most $100 on weed for this entire year so far. A snuff spoon is a very small spoon, a fraction of a tea spoon.

    I somehow overlooked the part where you said a snuff spoon. Also, the condescending tone is not necessary. Just make the edible and eat it, simple lol. If you want to know what it's like, then try it! If it doesn't work then oh well, it was minimal bud wasted. Just give it a shot bro

    That's a great point, not really wasting a lot if it doesn't work. And sorry for the attitude. I have an extreme amount of stress in my life. I have six month old twin boys and the mother and I aren't together and I am actually getting back with an ex and the baby's mom is pissed about it and has been very difficult about letting me see the boys and her friends are telling her she shouldn't let me see them and it's a very big hassle. All I want is to be in my sons lives. She keeps telling me she is going to calm down and act like an adult and then we get into another fight because she wants to be difficult for no reason.

    Unless there's something from the courts saying you can't see your kids then she can't keep them from you like that. You have every right to see them as she does. She's making herself look bad doing that, using the kids as a pawn...

    Lol yeah but I can't afford all that. Main reason I am going with ingestion is because although my ex doesn't mind me using, she doesn't want the neighbors to smell the smoke and with the nasty winter I think is coming I don't want to have to venture too far from the house if I don't have to.

    She's been a lot calmer the past 24 hours. She hasn't actually kept me from seeing my kids, but she has threatened not too, told me if I want to see them I have to pick them up and I don't have a car, tried to force me into splitting custody right now when I don't have the resources for that, the aforementioned transportation being one of those resources, and been extremely difficult about pickup times knowing I am depending on other people for rides to come get them. My ex is using a company van with no rear seat, but we may be able to buy a car soon for cheap. We are going to look into it as soon as we have the cash. Their mom and I were able to work out a pick up schedule and she is even bringing them down next weekend, but right now idk if she is going to stay calm. Only time will tell.

    Ah i hear ya, i live in las vegas where people put hoodies on when its 70 outside lol...but I used to live in Colorado so I'm no stranger to cold weather...and smoking in freezing cold is a buzzkill for sure. I love edibles, I just usually get too lazy to make them and they'e insanely expensive at the shop...have you considered a vaporizer? If you have a good one that doesn't actually burn the bud but heats it just right to release the thc then you don't need to worry about smoke or smell much at all

    Hmm I have an rda and a 75w mod that can run kanthal, stainless, titanium or the other tc wire I forget. How does this work, can I put bud directly in the coil? tell me more please.

    I did a little research and I have an idea in mind. Using temp control wire, adjust the temp to what you would use to decarb in the oven, 240 and pulse it a few times to activate as many cannabinoids as possible, then turn it up to 375 or 400 to vaporize it. Would this work, or am I way off here?

    When vaporizing bud there is no need to decarb first because the heat from the element will activate the thc which will gracefully float upwards and into your lungs. Look up the volcano vaporizer as an example. You don't want it to get too hot to where it actually starts burning plant material, but just hot enough to where the cannabinoids evaporate

    I wouldn't put the bud directly on the coil as that will almost surely ignite it I would think

    I just watched a video on dabbing with an rda and it looks fairly simple, my only concern is will it have a potent smell? I think what I am gonna do is just smoke it till I can afford the materials I need to start dabbing and that's just parchment paper and some straight vg to keep my wick from burning. Pretty sure my ex has a hair straightener so I'm gonna do rosin tech to make the dabs.

    There ya go then. I will say that dabs do have a smell but it definitely doesn't seem to linger and stick to everything like actual bud smoke...the lower temp the dab the better the flavor and less of it will actually burn creating the smell

    Let me know how that goes using the hair straightener...always wanted to try it but never actually did it lol

    If you live in a house I would just get a big dog house and put it out back with a little space heater and call it a smoke room haha
