i want to make some cannaoil with garlic infused olive oil, will this work? (then put that shit on bruschetta !)
An old thread, but this should help (I'll address a few points mentioned above as well)
Don't forget, once your temps surpass the flash point
point of your THC (in case you were wondering, that's only 300.2 f!
), you've already degraded some of the most valuable components of your potency by a minimum of 20% - 25%!
It's why liquid chromatography/LC is a more accurate means of measuring potency than gas/GC, once you start reaching the vape and combustion points, you are SERIOUSLY damaging your meds (and by the end of the process, you're potentially cutting your number of total doses in half, or worse!
Olive oil should also be avoided, due to its long-chain triglyceride content, unless you have a liver condition or you have repeatedly experienced the over- metabolization of your cannabinoids. The fact it has such a low saturated fat content also doesn't help, this extends the amount of time required to break down cannabis glandular material into a solution immensely.
Olive oil promotes lymphatic absorption and bypasses
the liver, this is good for patients such as those I've mentioned above, or those who need to medicate first thing in the morning in order to stomach a small meal.
But for most
medical patients and 99% of recreational users, you're looking for a medium-chain triglyceride containing oil such as coconut oil
, palm kernel oil, or even clarified butter to a lesser extent.
This is because in your liver, a large percentage of your D9-THC is converted to the much more powerful 11-OH-THC.... with olive oil, you're bypassing the liver by absorbing your cannabinoids lymphatically, and you're missing out on nearly all of the potentiating conversion.
Medium-chain triglycerides or MCTs on the other hand are absorbed passively and rapidly
without requiring the aid of bile salts, through the portal vein and the liver, for delivery to the blood stream... this provides a faster onset, and a longer-lasting, stronger
, overall experience.
You need to be sure you're activating or decarbing properly, and promoting bioavailability in an oil source that works best for your body.. for most folks, that's coconut oil or at the very least clarified butter!It's easy to make better edibles than you can find in many clinics... it just takes knowing the right steps.
This should help, the below recipes have revolutionized
the edibles distributed by some of the most popular vendors and clinics.... but my motto has always been that EVERYONE
deserves the highest quality edibles, whether you have access to coffee shops and dispensaries, or not!BadKat's Highly Activated & Bioavailable, Med-Grade Cannabis Concentrate
