Hi Guys does anybody know where I can get good advice on making this oil.
Some say that the cold extraction method with pure Alcohol will not provide sufficient THC in the finished oil.
However, if I decarboxylate the buds prior to soaking in Alcohol,to boost THC extraction, I will lose many other compounds such as terpenes which may act synergistically on the medical benefits of the oil.
Should I leave the buds to soak long term for a few weeks to maximise THC extraction.?
Rick Simpson uses Naphtha which does leach out more THC from the buds than all other solvents (except olive oil)however I am not going down the Naphtha route and have no access to it anyway.
I am considering using a combination of both methods.
A portion of the buds soaked long term with alcohol,and an equal portion treated with decarboxylation prior to long term soaking; then boiling off the combined solvent mixes in the recommended manner, to make the oil.
Any advice out there.?Thanks guys.
