@Spiridly@Flying-High this is my first attempt to make something like this so we will see how it works, but definitely a good way to make use of bud rot and trim!!! The 6 mason jars should last me a few years, may even buy more everclear to add to mason jars after the strain and just have a taste of some fire water every once in a while, I’m sure just one shot would do it
@Flying-High also I have been doing some research and chlorophyll has quite a few health benefits, no matter the flavor I’m certain it will do the job, it’s not like I’m going to sip on it continuously
@Caligurl has a recipe thread and says the Extract can hold a certain amount of THC.
A known level of THC in the extract allows proper calculation of dosage per serving in recipes!
For drinking, you need to mix with water at a ratio of 4 to 5 parts to get around 80 proof stuff.
Chlorophyll is fine, only makes a big difference if you are going to smoke or vape the stuff.
Using the alcohol removed oil for potential skin cancer medicine update:
Yes, I know someone that put straight coated wax on a cancer spot and within a month it was gone. I’ve made salve for a few people with other skin ailments and it works wonders! I even use it on mosquito bites!
Also, I never god my weed before I use it to make qwet. I just break it up by hand into rice sized pieces.
You can check out my blog here but note, I now use a Source Turbo for extraction. The first part of my blog I just evaporated it in a dish (total waste of Everclear)
I started your thread, but haven’t got totally caught up yet.
I knew you would need a way to reclaim your alcohol if you do this regularly!
A new survival ingredient in my home medical supply arsenal!
I put it on an itchy blister-type spreading rash, where I scratched until the blisters broke and bled.
Seems like it finally stopped spreading and is healing now.
The tincture with the alcohol is excellent for bug bites and stings, cleans, disinfects, and relieves pain.
Thanks for all the help and direction @Flying-High@Caligurl but this young buck is just going to keep it as drinkable alcohol this time around. Probably will enjoy with my hunting buddies up to camp this coming season and like I said between my flower harvest and reclaiming the trim and bud rot with this everclear I will be set for quite a while!!!
Remember to water it down, you don’t want your drunk buddy to spill all over his face and then catch fire!
So for 28ozs of extract mix with 32ozs distilled water to get below 50% or 100 proof which is flammable.
@Flying-High@Caligurl so I’m impatient and I’m now trying two different methods, the one on the left I filled the rest of the way with cold water making alcohol content around 30% rather than 90% so 1/3 alcohol mixture and 2/3 water. Jar on the right is just the alcohol mixture after straining and what I’m going to do is just add cheap vodka to that one. My question is when I added water it turned milky but you can still smell the alcohol. Is this normal?
So my guess is that the COLD water caused the oils and lipids to condense and fall out of the alcohol suspension. Also lowering the alcohol content too much could have this effect. All the stuff is still in there, just in a slightly different form now, IMHO. Have you taken a shot of this watered-down stuff yet? I’d guess you have. How did it go down and how are you feeling 45 mins later?
Even dosing up big on the tincture seems milder to me.
I tested my WWA buds early with all white trichomes which is known to sometimes bring on anxiousness.
A couple of good lung expanding puffs and the stuff comes on way strong!
Not like drinking it where I more slowly ease into it!
I have enjoyed making a strong cup of coffee or tea with a heavy addition of tincture or oil.
It comes on smooth and you gradually get higher eliminating my urge to have another coughing puff of smoke for quite a while.
Straight, I’d say it has a unique flavor many would not say tastes good, but acceptable.
The hot coffee or lemon tea greatly masks the flavor and tends to evaporate some of the alcohol off.
You will get oily clumps of dark green spots floating around when it cools down too much.
I’m sure there are some ladies out there who liked to get nice and tan when they were young,
who now have some sunspots they would love to make disappear.
Let’s see if my spot will eventually disappear!
