Hey Heirloom, hope things level out soon
Sorry about those damn mites
Speaking of sativas..
One of the best satevas I've smoked was durban poison
It had a very distinctive licorice flavor
The high was exceptional

MycoMan, that is one helleva harvest!

Here is my remaking three plants outside
Didn't do any training. Aurora Indica on the ends
Raspberry cough in the center. It's potted in a approx.
gal pot.
Definitely got em covered to protect from frost these last few weeks.
image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg

It's a bit crowded in the veg tent
Clones are 2 gorilla cookies,2 gorilla bomb 2 raspberry cough
1 white widow1 Orange skunk1liverty haze1amnesia OG
CBD clones 3 nightingales2 hiydrow
Plants are
Lavender, Gorilla cookies, raspberry/strawberry cough, 2 mystery Kush
and a hiydrow. Ive got ladybugs helping keep the critters down.
I've got bloom tents that have
Aurora Indica,R.C. White widow, Liberty haze, orange skunk
and probably one or two others.
The white widow are a bit disappointing and the gorilla bomb
is nothing to write home about but the g.b. And g.c.clones are
growing better than most of the other clones.

I've been doing a bit of reading on compost teas and want to start
Doing this too. Money's tight so it will be what I have on hand. One interesting
tidbit I read is to make a small mixture of ground up oatmeal stirred into a damp
container of compost/ worm casings and let it get some mycelia growth to add
to your 5 gal of brew. I will report on that later.

I've read myself cross eyed trying to find out if you can mix alchohol and glycerin
together when making tincture. The everclear burns but have read that glycerin
turns out a weaker product.
I like Hyphaenations freezer method.
I have some hiydrow (cbd) that I'd like to experiment with, possibly everclear
and coconut oil mix.
Would love anyone's opinion on this

@ Lakegal I have read that coconut oil is great for dissolving Thc in. Coconut oil carries the Thc into the body faster than some other oils. I think it has to due with the saturated fats being medium chain triglycerides, the body absorbs them quickly and they provide quick energy. Coconut oil is supposed to be healthy. I got both the liquid and solid coconut oils, I like them both & the cannabis oil dissolves in them real easy and fast.

Thanks Heirllom
When you say coconut oil, do you mean
A oil tincture or like cannabis butter?
I've made coconut butter before and really like
the coconut oil.

Yes I do have a lot of varieties. Went a bit overboard.
I'm excited to try all these varieties

Have been thinking ahead for next springs grow
and orange skunk, Liberty haze and a strain called red dragon
that I haven't grown are all early finishers.

Sorry it took so long to get back here. I make both , oil tintures with coconut oil the THC in coconut oil can be absorbed under the tongue like nitro can fo a heart patient. I also use the solid @ room temp coconut oil in place of butter, it works in the same way as the liquid coconut oil. Both good for medical especialy for those with nausea, they get THC in the system then can eat.

I understand a friend of mine grew some auto flower strains & others and gave me 7 samples to try and tell them my opinion.

Trying to get ready for winter, you guys are the best friends in the world


A game I invented - Ten- 10 bong hits in 10 minutes then give a smoke report in 10 minutes, in 24 hours a player may re-enter the game. it's more fun than sounds like. This old game has been used by Cannabis growers for ..ever? Often used a a Quality test but games are fun. I played today and am very High... hope you all are too

Hello Heirloom
As usual,your grows look great
Hope the mite problem is resolved.
I'm still dealing with that crap too.
Man, I don't know about that game dude
I'm "a one and done" ol gal.
well.. Maybe two or three

Onediadem That is some lovely bud you got there
So tell us all about this beauty.. And your grow style

Been a busy bee making tinctures
I'll tell ya about em and put some picks in later
( not in the mood to share sideways pictures of my stuff )
My first tincture was a qt. jar of nightingale
A high CBD Indica bent strain. I used everclear
in a brown bag with daily shaking for a month.
It produced 7 oz.
This one is my learning exsperience aka f**** up
OK
Next CBD strain called Hiydrow. This was a real beauty. Beautiful
Earthy Sweet fragrance
3/4 qt. jar to 16 ounces organic vegetable glycerin
I had is soaking for a couple of days then I put it in a
water bath and reduced it by 1/3-1/2 . I added a little peppermint
oil. It's very nice. Working with glycerin, you can loose a lot of product
and that's exactly what I did.
My third tinc was done with 1 qt. jar of strawberry cough larfy bud
After decarbing it went in the freezer along with the e.c.24 hr. freeze
Combined e.c. and weed, shake jar The jar will look half full.
I left it in there for a few days shaking whenever I open the freezer
strained through a coffee filter then put the plant matter back in original jar
added 4oz.of frozen everclear, shook it and put in freezer for a couple of
hours, then strain into the first strain. I then reduced this to about half
of the original volume. I separated some of it and added some peppermint
oil. I tried a couple of drops under my toungue and promptly burned the hell
out of my under toungue.
This will be added to drinks from now on ; )
My next endeavor will be making RSO.
Been reading up on the wonders of lethicin
and all the bennifits of coconut oil

After watching live PD and all the poor bastards
Getting busted due to the aroma of out favorite
plant, tinctures are a great way to imbibe.
Although
There's nothing like smoking in its purest form

It is really one of the most beautiful strains I have ever worked with. It literally fell into my lap. A friend I haven't seen in years opened a dispensary and asked me to manage the grows since the last person had no idea what he was doing. I cross bred one of the plants with San Fernando Valley O.G. to play with and to see what happens. Perhaps on the next round I will do a log.

One diadem
Wow! How cool
Creating your own strains
and to have a dispensary use your talents
Looking forward to a grow log

Heirloom, the more I read up on coconut oils
the more I want to use them. Lecithin is another
great ingredient to throw in for its power to
Increase the effects of anything you add it to.
Want to make a tincture w/ everclear then
render it down to the sludge then add coconut
oil and lecithin

Well just added 7 drops of my strawberry cough tinc
to a cup of tea. I'm definitely feeling the effects. I'm not
super high but it's a nice start.
I will continue to find the perfect dosage.

While I was making tinctures
I forgot to keep taking pictures
for a step by step
image.jpeg
I used the rubber bands to use as a gauge
for how much I wanted to reduce
image.jpeg
Here is my little double boiler
I just kept it at a simmer for a few hours
Careful as to not let the temp get too hot
Low and Slow
image.jpeg
Here is a smattering of some of the tinctures
The nightingale was made with everclear
The Hiydrow was made with glycerin.
The jar on the left was made with trim
from various grows. The strawberry cough was
made with ever clear.
I went into a lengthy explanation in an above
write up.
I think in the future I will reduce these even more for a stronger effect
Or better yet, a total reduction of all alchohol then
a addition of coconut oil and some lethicin for a yummy tincture
that can be delivered sublingually
Yesterday I added 7 drops to a cup of tea and
could feel the effects emediatley. It was a light, pleasent high.
I was under the impression that it would take longer to feel the effects
because it wasn't administered directly under the toungue and just mixed and drank

Lakegal the coconut oil absorbed very fast taking the THC with it even absorbed under the tongue or in the throat to stomach very fast due to the chemical structure of coconut oil.

I like to extract with alcohol then evaporate the alcohol and re-dissolve in the carrier , coconut oil or glycerin or lecithin butter or other oil for edibles.

Who knows DMSO might be used to absorb THC directly through the skin. I experimented with DMSO going back to the early 80's but never tried my hash oil with it. Put a drop of DMSO on your skin and you can tasye it within 30 seconds not as fast as a main line shot or inhaling vapor but close.

I can't get 95% alcohol here like everclear . I do use alcohol like isopropyl which is a class 3 FDA chemical approved for drug manufacture. Class 3 is the best class. Still required for isopropyl to be 100% evaporated.

I take 1 liter of 91% isopropyl add 50 gm's of anhydrous magnesium sulfate let sit over night or a few days, filter out mag sulfate and use, it's now 99-to-anhydrous, mag sulfate removes water.

I seem out of sorts so if I don't make sense

Thanks Heirloom
Haven't heard anyone talk about DMSO in a long time
Thanks for the information about the class 3 isopropyl alchohol
Its problebly more cost effective than everclear.

Can you tell me more about anhydrous magnesium.

I took 10 drops of my strawberry cough tincture and was not
to excited. I think I should reduce it and rehydrate it with
some coconut oil and some lethicin

Thanks Heirloom
As much as I love Auttum, I find myself wanting to hibernate
I'm due for a nice trip on shrooms. That always seems to
lift my spirits

Here is a gorilla bomb that is producing some seedsimage.jpeg

This is an Auroa Indica packing on the trichomesimage.jpeg

This is a Liberty Haze image.jpeg
These have been growing in a converted porch so have exsperienced some cold
temperatures. Just a guess but I'm thinking the colder temps are slowing them down and
contributing seeds to the heavy trichomes.
Dammit.. Sorry for the upside down shots

Looking good In there lakegal7! Loving the crystal production on the Auroa Indica! Looks lovely to make some concentrates with!

Is the Gorilla Bomb going hermi on you or was it a plant cross?
