Wow ! Thank you all for your interest. I didn’t expect this return.
To clarify… the ONLY thing i cant control is the source material. I cannot grow and i don’t know if what i am getting is old or not, when it has been dried or not. the thca/thc ratio.
My main objective was to have some foolproof procedure to press the flower i get and filter out the thc crystals. That way, i can remove all the pesticides, d8, chemicals and dirty stuff.
With the thca crystals i can then re-add commercial, distilated, solventless cbd in different proportions.
The purpouse of this procedure is three folds:
1)purify the starting product because i dont trust the source and i would be keeping the thc crystals from it only.
2)have a product that does not clog the carts because they are convenient and dont smell which opens up the possibilities of experiences.
3)to be able to play with the cbd/thc proportions. By measuring exactly the thc i put into the carts i can finetune the effect. 80% thc for pain removal and trippy nights. And 10 to 20% thc boost the potential of the cbd. That helps with tobacco withdrawal. The purpouse also is to retain a functionning psychological aspect. Between 10 and 20% thc is the sweet spot. It removes anxiety, adds a serotonin effect and removes the crave for tobacco and alcohol without putting you in a non social state. Daytime cart.
I dint even know if the project is doable. I have tried pressing hash (it came out horrible, sappy, even winterizing did not work. I think a lot of chemicals have been added to it)
The closer i got was pressing chottle tek for 90degres C for 30 seconds. I rehydrated at 62% before pressing. Heat up on contact for 10 seconds. The rosin came out almost yellow and it was sappy. I tried cold curing and hot curing and didnt get enough crystal formation to be able to pass it through the fuge. When i tried, the whole thing melted thru the filter after 9 hours.
I even thought about readding cheap botanical terpenes to force the thc crystals formation. I even sourced 5 micron sheets and maybe this will help with filtering out the plant material.
My purpouse was to mix perfect solventless cbd with perfect pure thc crystals.
Edit 1 : the rosin i recuperate is dabbable and the effects are on par with what i would feel smoking real buds. There is leftover reclaim that didn’t vape even on highest setting so i know its not full melt.
Edit 2: do you think i could add a solvent to help with crystals, then fuge it to remove all traces of it ?
Edit 3: i am trying to maximize the entourage effect. This will not be a commercial endavour.
