I made Sativex chocolate in 2006 and advised GWP, of this, in an email, in early 2007, saying that it worked better as a chocloate. I was advised, by phonecall, that making Sativex chocolate was a bad idea as a medicine.
In fact the woman, who is no longer working for GWP, had a good laughed at me. Fine!
That does surprise me, what reason did they give for it being such a bad idea?
She said, "We don't wish to be associated with producing a product similar to that of an illegal organisation who have been distributing cannabis laced chocolate, and who are presently being taken to Court by the Government. No! We don't wish to end up in the same mess as them!" As I recall, she did at one point mention THC4MS.
They know very well it works well when mixed with high cocoa content chocolate.
My way of mixing it was to put 5 or 6 sprays per cube of chocolate (done the hard way! - pressing the awkward, difficult to use spray mechanism on the vial) ... which equaled guaranteed sleep.
Tried 3 sprays on Volcano, with wire mesh liquid holder, and I didn't get anything worth writing about.
Alcohol evaporates at, is it 76C? I didn't want the alcohol when vaporising it, so I set it at 76C 1st and let it blow to air.
Just thinking about it now ... all my THC and CBD went to air as well ... it's bound to the alcohol ... I'm a clot!!!
There are varieties of weed on sale in coffeeshops in the Netherlands that, for me at least, that leave Sativex looking like some LowRyder I've grown - it will just about provide enough illness and pain relief get just about get you through the day.
I've vaporised some weeds here and I'm 'gone' by the 3rd or 4th bag (Black Widow, Santa Maria, Morning Glory, Q, to name but a few). If all I can manage to get is something like average White Widow (of which there is far too much about and some worse than the worst I've ever had in the UK) I mix 0.1g good hash with the weed to get to sleep.
In term of cost, since I would have to pay for Sativex in UK, @ 90p a spray x 6 that is £5.40 to get to sleep on Sativex
Using vaporised good weed here cost me about £ 1 - £1.50
to get the same quality and quantity of sleep.
