    1. Myth Busting - Autoflowers Revegging (can autoflowers reveg? Give us your thoughts!)

    Come give us your thoughts; we want to hear from you!
  • We're looking for grower submissions for any autoflowers that they have had tested by a lab or using a home testing device. The idea is to create a grouping of tests that we can use a resource to show growers (both new and experienced) what kind of cannabinoids and terpenes some of the strains we're growing are testing out with!

    Appreciate any help and consideration! Click here for the thread!

I mixed 27.1 g of Northern Lights with 1.3 cups grain alcohol (everclear) after freezing both for a day. Am making green dragon. I forgot to decarboxylate the cannabis before mixing. I've put the mixture in an oven for 45 minutes at 240 degree's, but I'm not sure if this will achieve the same end (decarboxylating). Any genius's out there?
There is a way of chemically decarbing ethyl tincture using an enzyme, heat, and pressure during its transfer to oil. Someone else is the genius though, and patented it. It's beyond the reach of most hobbyists.

Your tincture still has plenty of medicinal value, and might taste great, but won't be as psychoactive.

If you are only after the psychoactive effects, follow the advice above and cook it down OUTSIDE. Stay safe and never ever tell your insurance company what you did.

If you really want it to be tincture, you can redissolve your extract in some more alcohol, if you want a drinkable solution, redissolve it in vodka, rum or dilute it down to 40-50% abv. Anything stronger is not safe to drink.
