COMPLETE GUIDE for Cold-Process Decarboxylated Cannabis Tincture via Ancient Alchemical Method

in WeedCash Network3 months ago


Here is an in-depth guide to the only cold-process decarboxylation of cannabis that I am aware of. This is done using an ancient method of creating plant tinctures according to Alchemical Method. In alchemy this is a very basic and rudimentary preparation method, which is not often done since in general we prepare elixirs which are far more refined than this recipe.

BUT this recipe has immense potential for Cannabis, since the method allows the only Cold-Process decarboxylation of Cannabis that I am aware of. Not having to use any heat, this preserves all the terpenes and aromatics which are generally lost when heating it during the decarb process for creating active and potent edibles.

Using this method we can create a potent plant tincture and by adding an extra step we can decarboxylate it and render the preparation active.

What you will need (minimum requirements):

-Hemp Flowers ( 5grams would be my minimum recommendation, ideal 10-20grams and ++++)

-Alcohol 96% Grain-Alcohol (No lower, the alcohol has to be as pure as possible otherwise the salts will dissolve in the water portion of the alcohol instead of reacting with the THC-ACIDS)

-A Glass Jar.

-A metal pan to burn your herb in or some other container that is fireproof.

-Distilled Water

-Glass Oven-Proof Dish/Pan

The Complete Steps START TO FINISH:

-Take the Cannabis Flowers(grinded) and put it in a mason jar with a one liter capacity. ( Depending on the amount you use a smaller jar is fine, just make sure that about half of the jar is airspace, this allows the material to breath)

-Then we add alcohol in a ratio of 2 parts alcohol to 1 part plant approximately. (Make sure your herb is submerged by at least 2-3 cm of alcohol, more is better than too little)(For super efficient extraction you can blend the herb in a mixer with the alcohol)

-Close the lid and this we leave to macerate for at least 1-2 weeks. (40days would be alchemically perfect.) It is best you use a bigger jar so that the tincture can "breath" inside the sealed jar, this is considered an important element in tincturing in alchemy so that the maceration can mature properly, you can put it near a radiator in a dark space, shake daily!

-After it has completed macerating for a week or two, we then take our tincture and filter it through a coffee filter. ( You can clean the jar and pour the tincture back into the original jar you used). DO NOT THROW AWAY THE PLANT MATERIAL IN THE FILTER After completed maceration we filter out the plant matter


NOW comes the important part which has to do with the decarboxylation

-The leftover material that was filtered out, is put into a fireproof pan or pot, then we go outside and set fire to it.(It should burn well due to the leftover alcohol soaked into it)

If you have a fireproof container, you can light your grill and set it on the grill, let it burn and once it has burned down keep it on the grill to make sure the ashes are burnt down as far you can take them, we need a fine white/grey ash!

-Once this ash is obtained, we grind it and we then use a glass bottle to put it in and add DISTILLED WATER, minimum 500ml for small amounts. Let it soak for a day or two. (If you wish a faster method, you can boil the ash solution in water and this way you can boil away half of the liquid) (IF THE ASHES WERE PROPERLY BURNT, THE WATER WILL BE a Grayish Color! If it has a strong orange color, it means your ashes weren't burnt properly, see end of article to see what to do if the burn was incomplete)
(THE SOLUTION IS Highly Alkaline don't get it on your skin, it contains the plant minerals)

-If your ashes were burnt properly and you obtained a grayish liquid. Then simply filter through a coffee filter and pour the liquid in a oven-proof glass dish and gently evaporate ALL of the Water at 120° in the oven, once the salts have crystallized you must turn up the heat to 250° for another 20minutes, to remove all moisture from the salts.

-If this was successful you will have a white/grey layer of highly alkaline salts in your glass-dish, which you can scrape out using a razor blade. (Can dare to taste a small dab of your finger, they are prickly and highly alkaline)

-Now all you need to do is recombine the salts with your tincture!

When you add the salt you should observe fizzing and see them begin to react with the tincture.

-Leave this to sit for another week or 2 on a radiator at 30-40°C, and then filter one last time to remove the salts that did not react with the tincture. And you have succesfully created a potent Green Dragon style tincture without using any heat, preserving all the good stuff which are highly volatile or damaged by heat easily.

This is a highly potent remedy, there is no equivalent to this on the market. It is medically of greater benefit than the flowers alone, it is in a much higher order of bio-availability and also much easier to assimilate by the body.

DILUTE IN DRINK BEFORE USE!!!!, pure alcohol will burn your mouth if you take it undiluted!!

You can start out with 3 Drops, and adjust your dosage from there until you find your sweet spot, this is much stronger than a traditional method of preparing cannabis; The THC-Acid which is acidic reacts with the plants alkaline salts when they are added to the tincture, salts don't dissolve in alcohol but they react with the acids contained within the alcohol, creating entirely new compounds which are highly bioavailable.

(PS. if you didnt get a proper burn on the ashes, and the water tinges orange, then you have to wash them further, you take the orange liquid, put it in a glass oven-proof dish, evaporate the water and then leave it on high heat 250°+ for an extended period of time, it should eventually start turning black, at this stage you can pour fresh distilled water over the burnt salts, filter the liquid through a coffee filter, and then evaporate again. If done properly your salts will now be clean)

THIS PROCESS ONLY WORKS WITH ALCOHOL no less than 96%Purity, in the absence of water the salts react with the acids in the tincture creating new compounds which are soluble in the tincture. If the alcohol used is below 96% the salts will very likely not react and simply draw out and separate the water from the alcohol or they will simply dissolve in the water portion without any reaction. THEY NEED TO REACT SINCE THAT IS WHEN THE THC BECOMES DECARBOXYLATED.

Very cool write up! Maybe next post you should do an introduction post for the cannabis community:)

Thank you, I had this post ready from my blog so went ahead and improved it a bit to make it more easy to follow and added some important bits of info that were lacking in the first write up, which might have made it vague to understand. But since I had the post ready, I posted that first, since I will not be writing or posting much about cannabis right now. It is my favorite plant but I rather keep a low profile since my account is not very incognito and for the moment it is still not legal yet (although apparently soon to be)

Couple things glad to see another cannabis chemist here on weedcash I get sketched out giving full instructions but well done. I have seen a rotary distillation system made with a drill and a few gears/chains to decrease the speed and a psi gage from an air pig (air compressor) and a hot plate held together with pipe clamps c clamps and a board they had the distillate collecting in pop bottles a beautiful work of hillbilly art. Long story6 short i appreciate the ingenuity in this process ill have to give it a shot.

I said i would start leaving free joint NFTs on peoples posts so this URL is a one time claim cannabis NFT on WAX wallet join wax wallet here
The Cannabis 1 time URL
Good luck weedcash users

Hey, pleasure to see someone who enjoys the DIY lab approach! Sounds like a nice setup!

And many thanks for the free NFT's not sure on how they are meant to be used, I am entirely unfamiliar with their usage and function, I claimed them though, got any tips on what to do with them?

you could post trades with them or sell them if you have network ram, The cards go for about 1.3 WAXP currently but they have a limit on the minting so If you hodl them theoretically they should increase in value the market already values them above the price I sell them for.

Anybody with cannabis NFTs will likely accept them in trades which dont require network ram splinterlands assets for instance can be withdrawn and deposited to and from WAX wallet for free and their Burn value can be transferred via Hive-engine.

This Dapp market is the better one

I collected the claim but until today I can not figure out where the cards are. Does it take time to show up?

I'll probably hodl them cause as an artist I am trying to make my own NFTS now, thanks to your bringing my attention to this entire world. Searched it up and fascinated by the concept, weird idea.

Trying to create an Audio NFT on Rarible will have to see if it will go through with the super low gas fees I set xD

Yeah the transfer is instant but as I'm not listed on the white list pending approval, they dont show up under the all colections option on your wax wallet NFTs page
Its either listed under weedstickers or croniccards1. let me know if you need any more help

No already more than grateful, managed to finally make them visible had to uncheck the whitelist filter.

Thank you so much you opened up an entirely new portal to explore. Created my own NFT for my art just for fun, first success in minting.

yeah i should be white listed soon, yep first step is minting them not to sell them but just because you want to
