Swamp, yes the tincture is green, I don’t have an exact formula, I just fill a ball jar 3/4 full with cannibis, and fill to the top, Everclear, alcohol. Some folks slow boil the mixture.” I usually use the shake or cut off veg material. I’ve used just buds before, I personally can’t tell the difference when applying it externally on my joints.”
Another thing I do is, mix cannibis, and coconut oil “organic”, at low temps on the stove, I then apply the cocanut oil infused with cannibis into cupcake holders, those paper ones. I gift all of this stuff to the elderly, and Vets. I’m amazed at the amount of 70/80/90 year olds who understand the benefits. The other use for this coconut butter is making eatables, cookies, brownies, etc etc. I’ve never had much luck making eatables, I find it very difficult to regulate the THC content.
Some eatables are just right, and some are crazy high THC. I’m reluctant to make eatables for others.
I took an old navy buddy to Seattle earlier this week. I gave him a few Bags of bud. He has Parkinson’s, and has the brain implants, dropped him off, he went home where his wife made brownies for him. He called and told me my cannibis was way to strong. Which is true, it 27.5 THC, via a certified lab test results.
All I could do was laugh. I’ve told him multiple times to only eat 1/4 of a browny, and wait, to determine medical benifits, if it’s not enough, eat another 1/4 of the browny. He eat an entire brownie. When Bob invests cannibis, he stops shaking completely, for most of the day. If I hadn’t seen the results for myself, I would not have believed it. I have a few Parkinson’s patients I help out. Each has the same results after eating, or smoking. It’s a miricle in my mind.
One of the issues I’ve had has been in the manicuring of the buds. I manicure all the vegetation off, but don’t cut any of the tri combs or crystals off. That’s medicine, the industry standard is to trim the bud down to a tight marketable bud.
For my stated application I see zero needs to cut roughly 1/3 of the tri combs off, as I don’t market this stuff, I gift it to those in need.
I’ve found both formulas to work well after rubbing either the tincture, or the coconut butter on a stiff or aching body joint.
Swamp if you need help let me know. I’m always willing to help.
