We are completing our First Cannabis Project
I am adding the first part as a refresher for those that didn't begin with us from the beginning.
If you choose to follow along to make your own potent Hemp Medicine inspired by Alchemical Principles then consider granting a visit to Coalabis to purchase some Flowers from them for the project! They will be launching an online-store sometime soon, so like them on FB to stay tuned for that!
What you will need (minimum requirements):
-Hemp Flowers ( 5grams would be my minimum recommendation, ideal 10-20grams and ++++)
-Alcohol 96% Grain-Alcohol (SuperMarket in the alcohol section)
-A Glass Jar.
-A metal pan to burn your herb in or some other container that is fireproof.
-Glass Oven-Proof Dish/Pan
The Complete Steps START TO FINISH:
(Photos at the End)
-Take the Cannabis Flowers(grinded) and put it in a mason jar with a one liter capacity. ( Depending on the amount you use a smaller jar is fine, just make sure that about half of the jar is airspace, this allows the material to breath)
-Then we add alcohol in a ratio of 2 parts alcohol to 1 part plant approximately. (Make sure your herb is submerged by at least 2-3 cm of alcohol, more is better than too little)(For super efficient extraction you can blend the herb in a mixer with the alcohol)
-This we leave to macerate for at least 2 weeks. 40days would be perfect. It is best you use a bigger jar so that the tincture can "breath" inside the sealed jar, you can put it near a radiator in a dark space, shake daily!
-After this time, we then take our tincture and filter it through a coffee filter. ( You can clean the jar and pour the tincture back into the original jar you used). DO NOT THROW AWAY THE PLANT MATERIAL IN THE FILTER
-The leftover material that was filtered out, is put into a fireproof pan or pot, then we go outside and set fire to it.
If you have a fireproof container, you can light your grill and set it on the grill, let it burn and once it has burned down keep it on the grill to make sure the ashes are burnt down as far you can take them, we need a fine white/grey ash!
-Once this ash is obtained, we then use a glass bottle to put them in and add DISTILLED WATER, minimum 500ml for small amounts. Let it soak for a day or two. (If you wish a faster method, you can boil the ash solution in water and this way you can boil away half of the liquid) (IF THE ASHES WERE PROPERLY BURNT, THE WATER WILL BE a Grayish Color, if it has a strong orange color, it means your ashes weren't burnt properly, see end of article to see what to do if the burn was incomplete)
-If your ashes were burnt properly and you obtained a grayish liquid. Then simply filter through a coffee filter and pour the liquid in a oven-proof glass dish and gently evaporate ALL of the Water at 120° in the oven, once the salts have crystallized you can turn up the heat to 250° for another 20minutes, to remove all moisture from the salts.
-If this was successful you will have a white/grey layer of highly alkaline salts in your glass-dish, which you can scrape out using a razor blade. (Can dare to taste a small dab of your finger, they are prickly and highly alkaline)
-Now all you need to do is recombine the salts with your tincture!
-Leave this to sit for another week or 2 on a radiator at 30-40°C, and then filter one last time to remove the salts that did not react with the tincture. And you have your Spagyric CBD Tincture.
This is a highly potent remedy, there is no equivalent to this on the market. It is medically of greater benefit than the flowers alone, it is in a much higher order of bio-availability and also much easier to assimilate by the body.
DILUTE IN DRINK BEFORE USE!!!!, pure alcohol will burn your mouth if you take a pure drop!!
You can start out with 3 Drops, and adjust your dosage from there until you find your sweet spot, this is much stronger than just CBD-oil or even making tea from the flowers.
(PS. if you didnt get a proper burn on the ashes, and the water tinges orange, then you have to wash them further, you take the orange liquid, put it in a glass oven-proof dish, evaporate the water and then leave it on high heat 250°+ for an extended period of time, it should eventually start turning black, at this stage you can pour fresh distilled water over the burnt salts, filter the liquid through a coffee filter, and then evaporate again. If done properly your salts will now be clean)
