Well I have to say, I enjoyed it quite a bit actually, more so, than I was expecting.

I've done several infusions over the years, making RSO, BHO and even olive oil infusions. It seems the coconut oil is especially good at stripping away the thc, because it's very potent. I've still got the remaining cannabis was thinking about adding it into some soap actually, or perhaps make an oil body rub from it, for applying oil directly to the body's tissues, like sore muscles or joints. I'll leave it wrapped in the coffee filters, maybe tape it together somehow.

Made two sheets of brownies so far, and have enough stuff for at least another 8 or more.

Hell yeah salves are awesome made some outta the last run will definitely be making more. Just started exploring the power of other options beyond smoking have made so many brownies, cookies, salves,tinctures, only thing missing the last run was my own wax or shatter gonna try and get a little into that after this ones done.

I like this maybe make a step by step

1) grind, pulverize to rolling consistency, then spread in pan. [email protected] for 45 min. to ensure decarboxylation. Add in appox 1 cup coconut oil for each ounce, mixing occasionally and stirring mechanically for an additional 1 1/2- 2 hours. Pour oil though coffee filters. enjoy! It's that simple.

Just use the extract in your next cookie or brownie mix, I personally use Ghirardelli double chocolate, or fudge, but that's just my choice, usually put in walnuts also.

I've got enough for 10 sheets of cookies/brownies.

Bingo, nothing could be better than ingesting it, besides freaking rubbing it on your skin and body's tissues, allowing it to absorb locally. Holy shit.

Making your body into one huge psychedelic transdermal patch.

It has been a god send definitely the best working thing I've found for my neuropathy. Wish I had known about it sooner but glad I learned either way lol

I fill gelatin caps with the infused coconut oil as well , it gives me more control over dosage -

I also use my dab rig reclaim in edibles and caps- great for insomnia! Or staying high for 2 days ! Lmao

Problem: highly concentrated coconut infusion oils making edibles too strong... almost toxic.🤣😂🙃

Solution: Adding plenty of marshmello and walnuts.

careful the oil in those walnuts attracts even more cannabinoids to be digested quickly. We add nuts for effect.

So the nuts have a surfactant quality about them? Do you understand the mechanism behind it's potentiation?

Guessing they have an emulsifier type property or just the type of fat? Or both? Peaking my curiosity even though I'm allergic to walnuts

As i understand this it is as simple as the cannabinoids attracting to the nut oil just like during extraction with coconut oil or whatever and nut oil is easily digested.

in other words the thc piggybacks on the nut oil.

Gotcha thank for the info. I always thought coconut was one of the best but may look into others like peanut oil etc.

no. I was saying that adding nuts to the edibles can make them affect us faster and stronger. Some peoples metabolism cooks the cannabinioids so fast they dont get high off edibles. This can help with that.

pecans and walnuts are suggested for this.

I'm thinking high amount of hydrogenation is key here. The medium length chains of the coconut oil absorbs much quicker into the bloodstream. That's why I"m also trying lecithin crystals also, and it's hygroscopic lipophilic properties.

I think when you lubricate the process, it hits you not only faster, but harder as well, there's a chemical synergistic mechanism at play here.

Fatty acid content of coconut oil
Type of fatty acidpct
Caprylic saturated C87%
Decanoic saturated C108%
Lauric saturated C1248%
Myristic saturated C1416%
Palmitic saturated C169.5%
Oleic monounsaturated C18:16.5%

Interesting factoids: Coconuts smoke point @175C is most similar to hemp oil, at 166C, and Walnut oil @160C, almost all other cooking oils are above 200C, it's also one of the few oils solid at room temps. After infusing w/cannabis, it becomes ever more solid at room temps. It's an oil of choice for holding fragrances.
