Hey everyone, I'm doing some testing on some things and will have the Live IM chat add-on disabled for the time being. Appreciate your consideration and apologies for any inconvenience! - Hobbes (7 pm MDT 2/13/2020)
So I will take concentrated cannabis oil usually about a syringe full, which is 10 grams by weight and about 10 mil. Then I will add about four or five times that amount in oil, I like grape seed oil and pumpkin oil. After that I mix in the ratio of beeswax that I select from the guide above. At the very end I add in a few terpenes, I like sage and Pine and oh there's a couple others that escape me right now.
Everything is done by weight and I consider 1 ml in a syringe the same as 1 gram and then I weigh out my beeswax by the gram.
Doing it that way I can calculate the percentage of cannabinoids because I have tested my plants in the past and I know the percentage of cannabinoids in my concentrated cannabis oil.
So the rub in this picture is 12 and a half percent cannabinoids and it is equally divided between CBD and THC.
I just made my "suck it and see" balm. I chopped a failed plant in bud. Dried it out and then chopped it up, stems, leaves and flower. I dropped it in my weed (coffee) grinder and then I decarboxylase the bud in the oven on a baking paper at 225f for 45 mins. I heated some water in my slow cooker on low and then dropped in 1 cup of coconut oil in a bowl in the cooker, dropped in my decarboxylased cannabis and cooked on low for 4 hours. I then strained into a jar and added beeswax, I guessed the quantity but maybe a cup full of comb. I then put the jar in a saucepan of hot water on the heat until the wax melted. Once melted, I put the pan in the sink, ran cold water in the pan and kept stirring until the concoction started to solidify. I have put this in the fridge. I got some oil on my fingers and licked it off, I am typing this feeling a nice buzz.
We shall see if the balm works. I made it for daughters eczema.
I literally completed this 30 minutes ago lol
