Hey! I'm so sorry I never responded to you! I never even saw this response from you until just now! Thank you, thank you, thank you for your knowledge and expert opinion. I've never really used any kind of forum, and didn't use to use my gmail account much until lately, so I didn't even know you replied to my earlier request for some info. I will certainly download the books.and I have to agree that edibles are the most efficient use of all that the herb has to offer. You are absolutely right. I am just beginning to use and learn about essential oils and some of what I learned in chemistry 40 years ago resurfaced. I understand more than the average joe, but can't really put it to use because I don't know the basics.
It took me a minute to figure out how to reply here, my brain is getting so feeble these days!!
And I did put my jar of thick oil into a larger container of hot water to soften it up. I added a few drops of fractionated coconut oil and it's fine. I drew it up into a 3 cc syringe and have 2 cc's, plus some still in the jar, and my sister has the same amount - maybe more. So, I guess we got a pretty good yield. According to the lady whose video I watched one ounce of medical mj should yield 2 to 4 grams of oil. The hydroponic weed we used was very high THC - or so we were told. Does 28% sound real? Is that even possible? Or are they bullshitting me? Trust me, it's very potent. I didn't use it all to make RSO
I certainly will make use of your info regarding the different strains, some growing info, and how my sister's needs and mine differ. Hers is for cancer prevention, mine is to stop my fingers from getting more crooked than they already are, and both of us would benefit more from making edibles. Not sure I could do what you do when you make your budder tho. Too complicated for me.
There are docs writing scripts and/or dispensing medical pot here in Florida finally. My husband just drove by one today - took a pic and texted it to me. I don't have a lot of pain in my ugly, gnarled joints, but anything to make this better is a good thing. I'm pretty sure any doc would look at my hands and not hesitate to write me a script. Also, there's a vape store in town that has a sign in their window that says "hemp derived CBD oil". ?? Hm. Gotta go in there I guess.
I'm only just getting started with all of this, my new interest in essential oils, my new interest in Canadian pot stocks, (American, too), and starting a side business so I can stop driving to work every day, My brain is on overload. Not sleeping at 3;40 a.m is a good indicator of that.
I will be back with more questions. One of them I have right now is about buying seeds, which is why I visited CC to begin with. Gotta start growing now!
