Ack! Scared of failure, but here goes my first journal

I’ve done it twice now, too. Both so different from each other, but physically sick from it. One was from making cannabutter edibles and taste testing (!) and the other was from cannahoney in a hot toddy. I’ve never gotten paranoid from weed, thank God. My ex-hubby did, though, and quit smoking years ago.

There was one time before weed became legal recreationally here and there were medical marijuana ‘bars’ that I went to with a friend who had a card. For some reason, they allowed me to take what is called a knife hit. WOW WOW WOW. Neither of us could do anything whatsoever, not even have a conversation. I don’t even have to say that we were unable to drive home until two hours had passed and then it was iffy and I had to stop at a deli and pig out in the car. LOL. I’ve never been that stoned in my life. Sorta like a zombie high. Not a big fan of being that stoned. How does one enjoy a zombie high?

Thanks for teaching me the term ‘greening out’ …

The first time i really got high off an edible i got REALLY high! lol Didn’t smoke nearly as much at the time and ate 50mg worth of brownie. I couldn’t drive home from the concert. :laughing:

50mg is a starter dose now. :sweat_smile:

I’ve been making cannabutter and canna products for days. I’m not much of one to get stoned during the day, but I’ll tell ya, making caramel edibles? There is CERTAINLY. going to be TESTING from the stirring spoon, AS WELL AS, licking every device I stirred with clean, spoons, spatulas, knives. Heh. So, I’ve been very unproductive today. Now I’m good for cookies for a month. A jar of canna honey for tea. A pan of caramels in the fridge hardening. Two jars of decarbed flower soaking in everclear (still working on the chosen recipe). Gosh what else? I can’t remember. But I’m having fun. Pics to follow …

Finally found a good way to store my cannabutter in 1/4 cups slots

I got some canna butter stick molds. And caramels sound delicious. Yummy!

I saw those butter stick molds! Nice. Haven’t tried the caramels yet, but I did taste them while hot. I could taste the cannabis. For some reason, I can’t taste it in my cookies. So, I think I need to work on making a more mild ‘tasting’ cannabutter for my next batch. Guess I should at least try one (tonight).

I just got the magic butter machine when it went on sale. And then they had another sale on the accessories so i got the press also. Its very easy to make some butter this way. I havent made the gummies yet but i will eventually. The banana bread kicked my ass!


you can use any banana bread recipe just use canna butter. Im gonna do another loaf(s) and slice them up and vacuum seal them and then freeze them. To test shelf life. 5 days isnt enought to justify 32grams of flower per batch makes 2x loafs. I can get 15 slices per loaf and make 150. Because usually a zip is 300 bucks. So im out the bread ingredients essentially.

So, my CBD plant grew balls and I was very sad, but then when looking up recipes and making edibles and such, I found out that I can decarb my regular THC flower longer than usual and it becomes CBD. How true can this be? It would sure save me a lot of time to know.

How did the caramels turn out? It’s been too hot to turn the stove on at my house.

I’m not sure that would work unless the plant has a CBD profile. Best way is to find a CBD strain and cross it to a good THC plant. Unless the strain has CBD the increase in temperature will probably just lower the high effect by degrading the trichomes. Just my opinion, I don’t really know.

Well the way you worded it literally isn’t true! ThC won’t change to CBD but the temps required are higher is true. I think that’s what you meant right? Here’s some charts.

I haven’t had one yet. All my ‘tasting’ had me somewhat highish all day. You’re right, it WAS too hot to turn on the stove, but I was motivated. I didn’t take into account the 15-minute process of stirring over heat that I kept having to turn up. Ugh.

They are still very gooey after taking them out of the fridge to cut up so I put wax paper over the top and flipped it over and tried to take the parchment paper off the bottom but it’s there forever. I’m going to be eating parchment paper. UNLESS putting it in the freezer works. I may try to have one tonight but I have an early morning paraeducator placement and don’t want to try something new the night before a new job (only lasts 5 days).

I will say that so far, the taste isn’t good. Reminds me of my rice crispy treats I made that I could not stomach. I can bake a damn good pot cookie, but the sugary stuff is tricky. I should probably look into washing my budder … I’ll keep you posted.

That’s why I hate typing short notes without thinking. Although, I did mean that literally. LOL. I think. I swear that during my recipe research, I saw in two places that if I decarb my THC flower at a higher temp for longer, it turns into one of those CB___ … I will try to find my source(s) …

Otherwise, I’m gonna have to shell out for feminized CB__ seeds and hope that autos exist for that. Or keep buying my CBD supplements from Oregon. I really, really want to grow my own CBD/CBG/CBC/etc. as I take it every night to sleep.

Thanks for all the charts!! I’ll be back if I find where I thot I read that about THC/CBD. :slight_smile:

On the National Library of Medicine (NLM), they decided that “Thus, although the degradation of THC is relatively low at 200°C, the extent of conversion of THC to CBN is high.” source: Temperature Stability and Bioadhesive Properties of Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol Incorporated Hydroxypropylcellulose Polymer Matrix Systems - PMC

An interesting site: “Unlike terpenes, THC doesn’t evaporate when it degrades. It transforms into another phytocannabinoid altogether, called Cannabinol (CBN). CBN is known for its relaxing properties. It’s theorized that CBN is responsible for causing what you may have heard called the “couch lock” effect, when your high is not an energetic one, but a deeply sedating one. Unsurprisingly, CBN is being explored by researchers for its potential as a sleep aid.”

A person on ILGM (not exactly an official source): “I’ve researched and found terpenes vs decarb about 20 minutes @ 225 f. (flash exposure), go too far and you lose a lot of THC and gain CBN, thereby making sleeper brownies.”

A person on Quora (also not exactly an official source LOL):
When somebody said they decarbed their flower far too long, a poster replied:
“The decarboxylation process does not only turn THCA into THC, it also turns THC into CBN, which does not get you high and only works as a sedative.”

Based on these, it sure seems like I could decarb my THC longer and get CBN for sleep help? Isn’t that how it sounds? :slight_smile:

I think that may work! I like Orange Crush as it has 15 to 22 % THC and .5 to 1 % CBD. Great for pain and sleep!
