Vegetable Glycerin THC extract (Like Marinol)
ServingOriginal Recipe Yield 50 servings
1 oz well ground quality cannabis
1 cups food grade glycerin (found at pharmacy)
A glass jar and lid
A glass dropper bottle (for dosing)
Grind the cannabis as finely as possible and place it in the glass jar, pour over the Glycerin and stir it all in
Seal the jar. Heat the pot of water to a simmer and place the jar into the center. The level of the water should be about the same level as the contents of the jar. This will make sure the jar does not float and fall. Let the mixture cook for 6 hours or you can do it longer shaking the contents of the jar often and adding water to the pot as needed to maintain a level of boiling water. Once this is done you will want to pour your mixture through cheesecloth into a bowl. After you have poured it through squeeze the excess from the cheesecloth careful not to break it. I will suggest using gloves for this, however I didnt and I will assure you, this stuff can go through your skin and make you Super Stoned. Just a heads up.
Ok so here is what I got out of my experiment, a dark green vicious fluid that 1/2 teaspoon is equivalent to 3 marinol pills.
My buddy who has a perscription for and takes marinol on a daily basis came by and bottomed up a 1/2 teaspoon. Below is how he described the effects of the glycerin as it compares to Marinol.
5 minutes in he said he felt it in his face, pulling a smile and relaxed eyebrows
15 minutes in he said that it is the equivalent to 3 marinol pills, he usually only takes two
30 minutes in he said that he could feel it and it was much more rounded or complete than he experienced with Marinol, he said it felt like an edible but in a very manageable dose
1 hour later he wanted to know how I made the stuff
3 hours later he said he still felt good but the effects were beginning to become less noticable
5 hours later he said the effects were gone and he felt great, not too tired and not weird.
SO I think that High speed extraction of THC can be done using Vegetable glycerin in a double boil and perhaps a Crock Pot. below is a picture of the cannabis after the experiment
It appeared to me that there was still THC on the plant material, so I cooked it in butter for a few hours and made some mac and cheese. It definitely still held some THC because I got extremely high but I believe that a longer period in the glycerin or a fruit press for extraction would be needed to be sure.
Lab Results - Success - 5 drops and I was feeling great
