I have found that letting the tincture shit too long only pulls out more chlorophyll. That’s why some are bright green. 24-48 hours is a good soak.
I have infused olive oil can i use this instead of tincture and if so do i still leave the oven door open?
I like this, however, I think you need to be more specific about the dangers of alcohol in the oven and how the fumes can ignite. Newbies doing this won’t understand. Even if you state to keep the oven door open, I think you need to be clearer about the dangers.
Hi, do you think this recipe will work the same on vegan or raw sugar? White sugar in the USA is not vegan (processed with animal bones); curious if you think this will generally work with other kids of sugar granules? thanks.
I believe if you follow the same process, it should still work the same. We have not tried this so please leave a comment with your results!
Once the sugar is done can you add more tincture to it and do the recipe again for a stronger sugar?
Probably be easier to make a stronger tincture
Is the potency calculator based on 1cup of tincture poured over 1 cup of sugar OR is it based on your recipe of 2 cup of sugar to 1 cup of tincture with the calculator giving me dosing of 1 of those 2 cups.
Hello Monica, the potency calculator is based on the recipe using 2 cups of sugar and 1 cup of tincture. Furthermore, the calculator is giving you the dosage for each cup of sugar. I hope this answers your question.
Could I soak the decarbed bud overnight in everclear and use it the next day to make the sugar? As opposed to leaving it for a few weeks? I’ve seen some sites say to soak for 20 minutes or so. I don’t know if there a a difference in letting it sit for 10 hours vs 3 weeks vs 20 minutes. Thank you for your help!
Longer it sits the more thc will be soak up. You could do it over night, but you are going thc behind
