I did a partial harvest today and got a jar full of sugar leafs and bud trimmings. I was thinking about using them to make oil/butter, or w/e. Anyone do this? Just wondering - would not think the normal dry/cure process would apply to clippings. Do you just dry/carboxylate them or something else?
Ive done a couple runs with sugar and trims leaves but my tolerance was too high for them to really be worth my time to produce anything with as i had to take like 20 gummies or eat 4 brownies to feel anything. For me personally its a waste of time to make butter or oil from them and they would be best off in a compost to be turned into a super soil. I just toss mine out
I just really want to use my trimmings also. Ill probably try to make butter at least once out of the sugar leaves just to see how it turns out. I have a few friends who enjoy edibles but at the same time I struggle with the idea of using buds to make edibles. maybe once I get more stock in the bud bank the idea of using it will become easier.
We take all our trim and popcorn buds and use them to make oils. I was the same way, edibles don’t really do anything for me, so started making RSO and hash, which definitely does the trick. I agree with above, I don’t waste anything except the stems, and they go in my compost pile out back.
I wouldnt dry in the levo 2 because it can’t dry a lot at a time. I dry in the oven and decarb in the oven unless im doing small batches and then just use the levo for infusing the oil or butter. Also i had bought 2 power pods but then later found out from this forum that you can use a wire mesh screen and put your magnetic mixer over the top. My french coffee press spare screen was a perfect fit and allows for you to use much more green per run
yea i get that. i actually did the french press hack on mine day 2 because of that. having said that, still not nearly big enough. i just want to try some out before i do all of it. need more coconut oil. can you explain your drying time? just curious what that time would be prior to carbox.
2/3s the way done here - i expect this to be full when i am done.
This method works great if you need to quick-dry your buds for immediate consumption.
Take an oven tray or cookie sheet and place your buds on it. Bake them between 51°C and 60°C. Keep the buds in the oven for at least 10 minutes. Remove them for 5 minutes, turn over and repeat once.
Even though water and moisture will be effectively removed from your buds, the taste won’t be any better than slow-cured buds. The smoke will also be harsh, although this does not adversely affect the potency.
It’s important to remember that if your buds get burnt, then they are pretty much useless. Additionally, never set your oven higher than 65°C.
Then the decarb.
The quickest and easiest way to decarb cannabis is to spread out the cannabis evenly on a baking sheet and place in the oven for 20-30 minutes at 220-250°F.
This is what i did from fresh cut buds cut that day. Im not sure if its the right method but my edibles surely did their job well so i cant complain
