I’d like to formulate a tincture based on bubble hash.
The question is how to decarb the bubble hash as gentle as possible?
My general approach would be to mix bubble hash with MCT oil and blend it with the CAT homogenizer, followed by decarbing the infused tincture on a magnetic stirrer.
To perform this process you’ll need the Knife Generator. Powdered hash or dry sift may be a better option than bubble hash. I’ve only used kife, powdered hash and dry sift for this application. I would decarb with a hotplate stirrer after the infusion and filtration.
If it’s comparable to kief then it will work! It’s important that you get a potency test on the bubble hash so you can formulate the MG/G you desire. Just a heads up, if you don’t decarb then you’ll have a THCA sublingual tincture with all available treps that haven’t volatilized.
I have plans for a THCA rich tincture which I will formulate according to your tutorial.
However I also want to offer a decarbed version therefore my question if someone knows a trick how to decarb bubble hash without loosing too much terpene?
Was thinking about decarbing the bubble hash first in a vacuum oven before infusion with MCT oil.
Depends on the goal. If I was aiming at water clear nano-emulsions I’d probably try ultrasonics. I’ve only ever used sonicators for cleaning, or rupturing recombinant e.coli for the protein I asked them to make for me.
They claim they can do that all in one reaction vessel, the specs include a Nitrogen Purge Port, Tri-Clamp Connections - Sanitary Filter System with Column and Diamond Press Filters - Sanitary Collection Flasks, Hosing, Gaskets Clamps and Air Compressor.
im a biochemist myself. worked more in protein engineering so far. just got a chuckle out of the “asking” part haha. havent been in industry long and already hate being a lab rat though. the culture in labs sucks and so does the pay compared to the difficulty of obtaining the degree
word crazy to know. was working with e.coli and yeast recently before being let go because my boss was giving the worst advice for transformations/bioconversions and i wasnt having it. literally a simple process failed for over 3 months until i decided i wasnt going to keep doing it his failing way. really discouraging me from getting back into the industry and only want to keep working on my cannabis business instead.
