but I think two would get me real good. I think I did something wrong along the lines though, because a full dose isn't very powerful.
" I followed the directions to the T but pre-baked the weed a at 200 for 20 (Wrapped in foil,) rather than 5 minutes at 325 (open,) cause that causes a stink in the kitchen."
No you didn't follow the directions to the T if you did something different than what was in the directions. That recipe has never failed me when I followed the directions. He also recommends using a garlic press ($5 at the grocery store) to strain out the liquid from the weed.
If I were going to vary the recipe at all, I would use bad Kitty's technique of 220 degrees for 5 hr to activate the THC.
Don't try this batch again for a week or so, even though it wasn't as strong as you wanted it will have elevated your tolerance and the next dose, if taken too early, will be a disappointment.
Please try again, tinctures are very nice, but you altered what may have been the most important step.
