Well I actually tried a base run using a mason jar before I read your reply and it worked out amazing, using kief and keeping it right before a simmer. Although next time I should probably be a little more cautious with something that could explode and kill me but hey quantum leaps keep evolution, science, and society moving.
excipient is the scientific term used to describe any form of neutral binder in a pill or capsule that keeps the constituents of the pill together and evenly distributes them through the whole batch of pills.
I have been working on reverse engineering various kits and techniques on makeing THC pills in order to discover the best parts of each and amass them into one beautiful tech for everyone. I am hoping to test out my most recent procedure in the next week or so and if all goes well I will post my complete procedure on here, if you do not mind Fred, and would love feed back.
My most recent endeavor was to understand one kits "Decarboxylation Chamber" which looked exactly like a 8 ounce wide mouthed mason jar, they followed basically the water bath procedure with it but kept the lid on. My fear was also having it explode so I used a shatter proof glass lid more or less as a shield and created a barrier around it, heh.
Thank You Again
1. Would it be possible to use an air tight mason jar for the double boiling technique? Would it help retain any of the thc that did happen to vaporize or am I just crazy?
OMFG NO!!!!!!That will Blow up!!!!!!!!!
2. I have been thinking of using eleuthero root powder as an excipient for the mixture, in order to bind the oil and evenly distribute it through all the pills instead of using a pipette to attempt to evenly distribute the oil. Would it sound reasonable to mix the powder into the oil and cannabis in order for the oil to have something to bind to then mix it in so that it is evenly distributed in the mixture then fill and cap as if I was using any other herb with my cap m quick.
I am confused!
The reason I ask about the Eleuthero root is because I already take it for energy and for balancing my qi and body and I feel that it would do a mighty good job of counter acting the couch lock which sometimes make the medicinal benefits of marijuana impossible to enjoy on a day when life must go on.
Thank you for your time and for sharing this great method.
