So I wanted to run this by some more experience people to see what ya'll think

 

Been trying to figure out what to do with my little stash from my PC case grow

and figured the best method of long term storage

would be to put it into something with and indefinite shelf life

 

started by rough chopping buds into a jar

covering with acetone from the freezer

shook for ~30 seconds, filtered though a steel screen

evapped the acetone in a petri dish

oil dried to a very thick oil, sometimes breaking and flaking while scrapping

I ended up with what I would guess was a 1g ball of dark amber solid

took the ball and added to a small jar with about 1.5x's that amount of natural bees wax

melted in a mineral oil bath and held at ~250*F for about an hour to decarboxylate

then took a small jelly jar of honey, heated it  up and mixed in the melted resin/wax

the resulting honey has a slightly opaque look, like unfiltered honey

 

will be a while before I get to test it

but what do you guys think

does that sounds like it will work

or did I over look something and F'er myself up?

I don't know about eating beeswax, but your procedure is solid.

 

I usually decarb first, and lower temps for longer. It makes the plant material crush easily to powder. You've converted it though, and have a good extraction of all the actives.

Roc,

I'd love to send you a sample, but that would probably be frowned upon by the powers that be

 

Happy,

Ya I wondered about eating bees wax, but did some googling and it seems that its pretty safe, so long as you don't eat large amounts of it, which could cause "blockage"

 

I by the time I do feel safe enough to test it out (damn randoms @ work) I'll probibly be able to walk into a store and buy it

though the fact that you can now do that in certain parts of the country is absolutly astounding to me

especially since its like 1/2 the price I used to pay to sit on some dudes couch uncomfortable bull shitting for 2 hours waiting for his "guy" to show up

Not to mention that part of that "sitting on a couch for hours" was that you would buy almost anything and you had.......wait fot it.........one choice!!

 

The dispensaries are so fucking awesome in that you have a choice between twenty or thirty different "flowers" and as many other types of extractions/medibles/topicals/oils and clones. I have yet to see seeds for sale, but who grows from seeds?

 

I guess if you wanted males you might roll the dice in that direction.

 

Beeswax smells good enough to eat, but like you say, who needs gridlock!!
