My mom suffers from back curvature resulting in debilitating pain. She also battles depression and anxiety knowing her condition continually worsens. She gets a variety of meds from her doctor including opioids, zanax and valium. When she doesn’t have enough pain killers, she tries to find ways to get them on the black market and I refuse to go along. I have suggested we try cannabis meds and she is agreeable to give this a try.
Not only for my mom, but for me as well (vape tincture), I ordered an Ardent Lyft Decarboxylator and a Magical Butter machine. My question is how to prepare the best med possible for mom.
She is not going to smoke, so that drove me to considering some sort of oral method. She loves coconut oil, so I had considered infusing liquid coconut oil in the butter machine. Another option is edibles BUT she wont eat much and I figure brownies or other edibles wont be as simple as making oils for sublingual application. It would be easy for me to help her find the correct dosage by using a dropper. Would 7 grams of decent quality weed be ok to infuse a cup of oil? I don’t have the machines yet, so I’m looking ahead to see if this butter machine can do small quantities.
Any suggestions are welcomed, and if my original plan seems on track, I hope to hear feedback before I waste weed on a dead end project. Thanks!!
