I will get this smart "gadget" within the next weeks.

 

Primarily to extract CBD oil, and further producing capsules with accurately defined

dosages.

My daily dosage of CBD for treatment is 100 mg, actually I get enough plant matter

of Bedrolite® with less than 1% THC and 9% CBD, paid by health insurance,

but vaporising enough to reach the needed bioavailabilty in my blood system is tough work....

 

So, anyone here with experience concerning the Source Turbo?

What I need to know, and so far I could not find specific knowledge (mainly as my linguistic english skills are insufficient),

how I may figure out exactly how much CBD I will extract with this unit from a given amount of Bedrolite®,

so I will know, after diluting the extract with, for example coconut oil, how much of that end product

I have to fill into a capsule, and knowing how much CBD is in there.

Somehow algebraic........

 

Peace, Martin

Looks like a nifty gadget for sure M...above my budget I'm afraid.  I didn't look long for your answer but did run across a users site on FaceBook

You have to join to ask questions, but there are almost 4,000 members so I imagine there would be knowledgeable people there that can give you an answer or suggest where you might find it...good luck!

Suzy, thank you so much!

 

2 years ago I quit FB, for several reasons. Made my life so much better!

I know what you mean about FB...it's like a Blackhole that just sucks you in, and I usually get angry at someone or something.

I wrote to Extract Craft support, they also suggested to have a look at the FB user site.....

 

I see,  I am totally oldschool and lost. Maybe I will have a look while visiting my children in May,

using their account.

 

lammuA, spent your time for your own projects, enough to do in your garden, I suspect!

 

It will be very tricky to get a preferably exact calculation on concentrations of CBD.

https://www.newcanna...ion-efficiency/

 

 

When the cannabis plant is subjected to extraction, the end product can contain cannabinoids, terpenes, oils, waxes, lipids, proteins, and other plant material.  The total amount of product has little to do with the actual value and efficacy of the product.  The composition, or fraction of each component of the whole, really determines the potency, effect, and value of the extract.  For example, Extract Company A processed 10 lbs of cannabis and obtained a yield of 20%.  However the end product contained 20% THC.   Extract Company B took the same feedstock and obtained a lower 10% yield but the final product contained 60% THC.  Which extractor is better?

If we look at “yield” alone, Extract Company A beat out Extract Company B.  But what if the product from Extract Company A contained more waste material thus increasing its final mass and the resulting yield?  “Yield” is important, a processor should measure how much comes out of the process compared to how much goes in.  However, a much more critical evaluation is what is called the “Extraction Efficiency.”

Extraction Efficiency is the amount of THC actually extracted, versus how much THC is available in the feedstock.  A 100% Extraction Efficiency means that 100% of the THC in the feedstock is being extracted.  In the example above, let’s assume the feedstock contained 10% THC by mass, thus 1000 grams of feedstock contains 100 grams of THC.  Extract Company A obtained a “yield” of 20% (the mass of the material coming out of the extraction equipment is approximately 20% of the mass put in to the extractor) or approximately 200 grams of material.  However, based on the potency of 20%, only 40 g of THC was extracted (20% of 20% of 1000g).

Using the same material, Extract Company B obtained a 10% “yield” – or approximately 100 grams of extract (10% of 1000g of feedstock).  However, that 100 grams of extract is comprised of 60 grams of THC (60% of 10% of 1000 g of feedstock)– 50% more THC for the same amount of feedstock than the extract of Company A.

Although Company A obtained a higher yield, the Extraction Efficiency is 40% (40g THC extracted of the total 100 grams available in the feedstock).

Company B obtained a smaller yield (10% compared to 20%), but the Extraction Efficiency is 60% (60g THC of the total 100 grams available has been extracted).

As most products are sold based on their THC content, the extract from company B is a much more profitable and efficient extraction process.  The extract from Company B contains more useable, saleable THC from the same plant material.  Thus there will be a higher number of products that can be made.

As you can see from the examples above, “yield” is important, but has very little do with the actual effectiveness or efficiency of the extraction process.  The key is Extraction Efficiency, the amount of THC actually extracted, versus how much THC is available in the feedstock.

With taking the risk of throwing $$ @the problem....consider this?

tCheck 2 is a potency tester that allows you to measure the strength of your infusions. Using just a few drops of butter, coconut oil, olive oil, or alcohol, you can accurately measure the strength of your infusion in less than 45 seconds. 

Results from tCheck 2 will be an aggregate of all compounds combined. For a separate measurement of the compounds, Compound Breakdown Subscription will be required. 

 

 

100 milligrams of your cannabis medicine a day. Hmmmm  thinking.gif

A gram has 1000 milligrams.

 

Your bud is 1% THC and 9% CBD.

 

Lets assume your extraction pulls out all the cannabinoids....so your extract will still BE 1% THC and 9% CBD, just in concentrate form.... hmmm...time to  :rollone:  and  :passit: coffeegif   then I might work it out  :rolling-eyes-smiley-emoticon:  hehehe

Muhahaha, YEP!

 

The question is, how much of the CBD will be in the extract, sure it´s no more 9%!

 

It will be a result of that special progress, extracting with ethanol under vacuum, specific conditions at

the "washing" of plant matter....

This article is astonishing, lammuA! Some details I did not know so far, it provides some info

according my personal experience with the different effects of ingesting previously heated and un-heated

oil extracts.
