As good as everclear?

  • Good morning everyone! So I spent the day installing and upgrading a new add-on for AFN that effects our vendor and breeder forums. It's the same setup that we are using on High of the Tiger, but we didn't realize it would effect members a bit differently here on how it's been received.

    The major benefit of the add-on is that it allows breeders/vendors a global calendar (that they add their own events to,) a group media gallery, group discussion area, an information/about tab, and a few other goodies that should make the experience overall a better one.

    One major caveat to point out, the new groups (where you see the overlay) unfortuantely *REQUIRE* you to join them in order to post in them. This is done by design of the software (and I understand why,) however it's been requested to see if we can circumvent this somehow. I will inquire to the developer to see if it's an option available or one that can be added to future versions. So to be clear, you MUST JOIN the group to be able to post and reply, even if your existing threads were there before. We apologize for this minor inconvenience but it's a one-time deal and then it's back to business :-)
  • Hey we're testing out our new Raffle/Giveaway software and wanted to invite you all to try it out with us for a chance to win a Smokin' Screws pipe screen!

    This will be for USA-based growers only (to start,) and the only requirements are 25 minimum post count to put in an entry (which you can do once per hour!)

I make salve using the Magical Butter Machine II. Infuse 2+ cups of coconut oil with 1 oz of bud. 1/2 oz. decarbed 1/2 oz. not decarbed, that way you get both THC, THCa and CBD, CBDa. along with all of the other medical components of the cannabis plant. Process 2 hours @130°F. Strain that and put back in the MBII. In a cuisinart food processor chop up 3 or 4 cups of fresh cannabis leaves. I use the ones from my Dinamed CBD plant but any fresh leaves will be good. Put that into the MBII an process for 2 hours @130°F for 2 hours. Strain 2 cups into a metal pan and add 1/2 cup of olive oil and 2/3 cup of beeswax. Warm to dissolve and blend in the beeswax. Distribute into containers.

Gonna have a go at extracting from fresh bud using alcohol tomorrow
I have had very good results using the freezer method on fresh buds. Freeze the buds and ethanol at least overnight. Do a 5 minute wash with the frozen bud & ethanol. I usually have several quart jars of loosely placed buds and I just pour the ethanol from jar to jar. Recap the bud and put it back into the freezer for a second wash later. Then I dump the strained QWET into a jar and winterize it overnight. Filter it through the buchner filter with a [HASHTAG]#1[/HASHTAG] paper. Dry it off.

You can get a cheap single use buchner filter and convert it for reuse easy with a piece of 800 grit sandpaper. Carefully remove the used membrane, sand a 1/2" landing around the edge and use 90mm filter papers.

How did you honey tincture end up buddy. Mine was bloody awful tasting, i came to the conclusion it still had alcohol in it so i put it in the crock pot for 8 hours on low and it near enough halved in quantity and tasted a lot better. I ended up with about 3/4 of a jam.jar or geen honey.
I put 1 teaspoon in a cup of tea and was nicely wasted for about 5 hours before i went to bed and slept right through. (Something which hasn't happened for about 10 years).

Sounds about right lol. I have never slept so good. Take too much though and you need a good 18 hours to recover properly lol
