Not sure if this is the right forum, so admin should feel free to move this topic...
As I messed up the NNO tek several times, only getting out a fraction of the oil I put in, I decided to make gumby hash to infuse the coconut oil instead. The result was the usual runny water like (in contact with skin/body heat) brown/greenish oil with specks of plantmatter when applied to the skin.
As I'm going to try an cure a diabetic ulcure that has more or less hollowed out the toe, I figured I'd try and extract some oil from the hash instead, thinking this would make the medicine more sterile than other methods, with a solvent and need of heat on top of that... ?
My phramacy have petrolium ether and aceton in stock and can order in isopropanol. As I'm always in a hurry, I wonder if I might as well use any of the first two? From what I understand ether is extremely flamable, but I only have a couple of grams of gumby so I'm guessing the small amounts of ether needed for this (one or two 25ml bottles?) wont make it too dangerous if done outside?
Also, I understand that ether will make the most potent oil, but less yield of course. As my starting material is low potency "daytime smoke" from danish outdoor genetics grown at 60'N, my starting material would give pretty low potency oil anyhow?
Should or could I use ether or aceton, if so, which one would be more favourable?
Or... should I just try and filter the infused coconut oil? This raises some concerns about bacterial contaminants when used inside a hollow toe though.... or?
On a sidenote.. yesterday I just applied some infused oil around the edged of the ulcer after plugging it with a sterile bandage before applying oil on the whole foot, wrapping it in plastic foil to keep it in place over night.... leaving the toes open to breathe of course...
Would this do any good at all?
