So based this off of the green dragon tek discussed by golly and mushit
Here's what I did
1 - 375 ML bottle of everclear
Half oz of bag weed
Ground up weed
Baked at 200 for 20 MIN
Devided bottle of everclear equally into 2 pint mason jars
Put mason jars into pan with about an inch or so of water
Sat pan onto electric burner and heated to 170
When weed was done baking devided it equally into mason jars
Simmered around 170 for about 20 MIN or so
strained and pressed weed
Re bottled
Dose
Started out with a tablespoon at 1725 mixed with some cranberry juice
Down the hatch by 1730
No food for past 5 hours
No weed for past 10 hours
Wish me luck

First I used bag weed.
Next the color after the weed was baked was greener then the tek talked about saying that it did not bake long enough
The temp of the ever clear was higher then the 170 simmer for a bit
The color of the end product is a lot greener then what is described in the is due to the baking of the weed issue above
And the dose. Another member did it with bag weed and takes a tablespoon to fly
but I think my brew did not reduce as much as what the tek sounds like they reduced to
I'm at 3o min now. Feel something but think it's mearly placebo
Caught my self twice now trying to roll a joint to smoke. Will wait it out a bit longer before I light one up. I never seem to have the best of luck with extracting the thc for edible products but sure hope this works out. Would be nice to give the good ole lungs a rest from the smoke

Hey PsyBearknot. You are getting close with your procedure.

A couple things.

If the bagweed is good it will be fine to use.
I like to use my best buds.
The weed you use must be dry, though.
Any moisture in it will raise the boiling point of the alcohol and will take forever to render down.
You would think the baking process would evapourate the moisture out, but a moist ground up bud will not completely dry out in 20 minutes.
This has happened to me a few times.

As far as not baking it long enough, I have not been able to get the brown colour that is mentioned in the tek and I kinda like the green hue.
After all it is not "Brown" dragon. :lol:
20 minutes is fine.
Be sure it doesn't get too hot as well from a bad temp control.

The rendering is more of a feel.
I would say about 1/3 of the liquid should be evapourated off to get the right dose.
With a "wet" weed it could take 30 - 40 minutes to do this.
Also I do not use a thermometer.
I just get the solution boiling quite well.

Tweak the tek a bit and you will have a killer batch.
It takes a bit of practice.
This is the reason to start with a small batch to get the feel of it.
You will find one day that a teaspoon will get you flying.
I will get a 4 hr buzz from 2 ml and a teaspoon is 8 ml.
Good luck and keep us posted.

Ok so I am a BIG fan of the green dragon.
I have finally gotten back around to try this.
I am so very happy with the results. I have been playing around with edible side of pot. I have an oil recipe for brownies and such and have been very happy using that. I have worked my way from smoking a ton of weed to hardly smoking anymore and ingesting my THC consumption. I love it in so many more ways than smoking. You just got to get out of the smoking "habit" and get into the edibles.

I put 1/2 of an oz of typical bag/brick/press weed through the pre bake 25 min @ 200-215
added this to the a bottle
marked bottle for 1/2 cup
used roughly 3/4 cup or 200 ml bottle of ever clear and added that to the bottle
put this bottle in a pan of water
turned electric burner on high
got water to boil
everclear starts to boil pretty rapidly
turned electric burner down to medium
held at medium till reduced to 1/2 cup
total time about 45-50 min
strained and drained back into everclear bottle
let cool

Dosed with 2 table spoons in a cup of almond milk. Was going to just shoot it but it was WAYYYY bitter. The Chocolate almond milk tasted like I was drinking the left over milk from some pot cereal or something. Not bad, not good BUT EFFECTIVE.

I figured the 2 tablespoons were roughly the = to a big brownie that I would down when I made cooking oil. Well if that is the case then Green Dragon....or in my case Green Schwagon is WAY more efficient in its potency of its extraction. Or the way it is absorbed or the speed it hits you. I dosed on a fairly full stomach. Brownie in that case would start to feel effects at 1 - 1.5 hrs. With the Green Schwagon I was full on stoned staring at the t.v. giggling at stupid commercials by the time an hour came round. Seems to hit quicker....yum

The original recipe concentrates this way more then i did. I was just working with measurements that I knew worked with another recipe based on dose. I can now see where reducing this farther now that I am familiar with my dose range. Nice. Nice. Nice.
