What next? Questions from a pharmer

We’ve been hard at it and have managed to successfully create several consistant strains that remain extremely high in terpene production, above average CBD potential, all in the while remaining under hemp regulations for THC content…
We are interested in providing the highest quality (medicinal consumable) end product without extensive mechanical or chemical manipulation…
What would be the best route?

(experimantal CO2 crude is coming out at 55%CBDa and <1% THCa before any filtration or scrubbing.)

direct infusion into MCT or Coconut oil?

Russo shows better extraction with warm olive-oil than ethanol. and brings more terps too. of course ymmv.



Olive oil… who knew

of course you can’t evaporate the olive oil to get a concentrate, but as a solution to the question as posed, it seems to warrant looking into.

easy. effective. about as minimalist a delivery system as you can get without setting it on fire.


Not that im not interested in lighting things on fire :wink: For a higher concentratiin in tge carrier oil, would you say pressure and heat would be appropriate for maintaining the yummy terpenes?? Have been reading about cavatation and sonication for means of super saturation in solvents… Same idea based on the physics I presume?

P.S… This place is golden! Ive been getting in trouble endlessly over the last few days because i can’t shut up about what im reading!

@Future such an incredible community !


Hey! Did you get any feedback on this ? On the article @cyclopath shared, you lose most of terpenes after heating. But it’s good for THC or other cannabinoids. But not the yummy terpenes…

What would work best to get cannabinoids and terpenes to the carrying oil then I wonder now. Heating up with magnetic stirrer to apply some heat and pressure ?

“Of the solvents tested, this leaves olive oil as the most optimal choice for preparation of Cannabis oils for self-medication. and the oil needs to be heated up only to the boiling point of water (by placing a glass container with the product in a pan of boiling water) so no overheating of the oil may occur. After cooling down and filtering the oil, e.g. by using a French coffee press, the product is immediately ready for consumption.”
