Does anyone know if It's possible to use coffee filters for pressing or do I need to get proper filters? :smokin:

Ive been tidying things up recently and only have a few fluid oz of tincture left ,So i decided to add it to some more bud ive only ever used the cold soak method before but after reading that post by Gray Wolf i want to use some heat,Any idea how to get the temps required using bog standard kitchen appliances.I was thinking bain marie or would it work if i stuck it in a pyrex dish and shoved it in the oven, tia

I bought a food temp gauge for a few quid, you know, one of those that you stick into meat to test it's temperature. It can also be used in water and liquids so I thought it would be good to use it to both stir the tincture and check temps at the same time, it's all digital and very accurate. Think it was £5 or so mate. :smokin: Edited by Mr Bond

I rendered a quarter of fresh plants into tinc. I used 200ml glycerine. It's made me enough tinc to last maybe three or four months! I'm going to add blueberry syrup to it.

Sorry, cured not fresh. I decarbed in the slow cooker itself.

@@Jimboo me too mate. 9 months now. lol Well done us, much back patting all round. :hug:

The alcohol tincture sounds lethal but I figured it was counter what I am trying to achieve which is a poison free body which is why I went down the glycerin route. Hopefully it will be as effective as the vape although nothing has been measured and I just shoved loads of fresh bud (no trim) into a 500ml Kilner and then covered it in glyc, been shacking it several times daily for. 3 months now. A labour of love if ever there was one. :)

mate i cannot get a consistent hit of it sometimes i nearly whitey other times a nice mellow long stone,During the week i took it a few times deliberately and it was just a mellow stone another time i spilled some when i was adding it to some more bud and i licked it off my fingers and within a min i had to come in from the kitchen and sit down good luck let us know how you get on

my original tinct was 14g of bud per 200mls

Pretty much the same as me mate, bout half ounce in 200mls. Are you doing a few drops at a time the Jimboo? I was thinking on doing maybe 3 on the first go and see what happens.

Clearing my schedule though in case of afore mentioned whitey situation :)

im doing maybe half a teaspoonful lol the whitey isnt long lasting mate and fades away to almost nothing within a few mins mate clean your teeth or rinse your mouth before you try it ,When i was seeing if it would go through coffee filters earlier for you ,I had a wee sip and nothing happened but that was after some chicken and potatoe salad im wondering is that because there was a film of food/oil/fat in my mouth
