Hey guys just wondering what processes you all are using to decarb oil post extraction, got a few grams I'd like to do some gummies with but was wondering if there is a better way, besides baking the oil in the oven, will a rolling boil get it done prior to pouring into the molds???

If you have a crockpot you can put the oil in a jar with a lil coconut oil and infuse that for 30mins-1hours. Rolling boil might work... Just try out a batch using only 1 gram of oil if you have it to spare.

Decarbing in the oven is the best bet though and quick for concentrates. 240 for 7-10 mins or until you no longer see bubbles.

Solid advice man. I use a hot plate, a thick pyrex dish like 4oz, and an ir temp gun. The bubbles tell a tale for sure, it's key to the whole process.

@Gweedo's Growroom there's also the Ardent and the Butter Brewer that decarb. I'm actually thinking about buying the butter brewer. The method I listed above can be a touchy process. You can't get sidetracked or start messing with something while you're doing it, works great if done right though lol.

toaster oven and a small pyrex dish/shot glass. I prefer shot glass because I can add my MCT oil right into it. Decarb a gram or to (.ike AA said until the bubbles stop, THAT IS WAY MORE IMPORTANT THAN TIME) go til the bubbles stop bubbling! then I add in a teaspoon or teaspoon.5 into the shot glass, mix very well, let sit at 100 or so for a little bit while I get shit ready. Then I just pour the shot glass (pours super easy now that its mixed with oil) into whatever I'm doing. Provided its something that needs MINIMAL oil, otherwise I prefer to cook with butter.

lol I just noticed your david the robot avatar, nice. NO, you dont need that junk! absolutely simple to do it yourself, dont sell yourself short, you can do it! You dont gotta fork over 200 bucks for a machine that only does one function of a crock pot/oven.

I agree with you but I make a lot of decarbed oil. I have a lot of mixed strain material from making seeds and don't feel it's worth the effort to blast for a mixed strain run. I just do a quick wash and decarb what's left after evap. However I gotta start paying attention to what strains go into my night time edibles. More than once now there's something uppy in there. I down my edible an hour or so before bed and wake up higher than a mother but it's uppy and it's now 2am lol.

I use powdered lethicin.

For oil carriers if you are transferring them into the oil.

MCT/Clarified Butter and avocado oil conversion rate is 90 to 95%....the best for transfer of the two
Coconut Oil/EV olive oil/ walnut and grapeseed conversion rate is 80 to 85%
Bacon Fat is 90+% and works VERY well....rough on cholesteral but tough on pain ! :D lol

Clarified butter is fantastic and it makes a huge difference if its clarified (STRONGER).

Butter and coconut oil are the best for baking cookies or brownies. For gummies i love coconut oil the most.

This is based on infusion of decarbed buds into oil.

Flavor wise its hard to beat coconut oil...clarified butter works good to but avacado and evoo taste like shit ! IMHO

With concentrates like rosin or hash oil after decarb you can probably mix it into the oil and get 100% transfer.

I just find it a lot easier to put the buds in the machine and push the button and smoke my rosin.

Lethicin affects how your liver processes the THC....it makes edibles work faster and hit harder. A gummy with lethicin in the infusion can be felt in 10 minutes.

Eat a mango before a gummy too if you really want to get zinged...

I believe guar gum is just an emulsifier and does not have that awesome liver effect....does it ?

I am going to do more research but maybe someone knows.

I’ve been making this for years and years. I have done side by sides. I feel your 10 minutes is purely anecdotal. I know all about that, however the trade offs are worth it to emulsify with a better emulsifier. I’ve never had an issue with onset time with my edibles. If I was really concerned with that I’d just make a strong ass tincture and take it sublingualy

Sorry if that came off as argumentative. Was just taking a shit at work and pumped out a quick reply. I just meant that I’ve experimented lots and found what works best for me.

No problemo. I think what is especially weird about edibles is every human processes it kind of different. And some poor bastards cant get high from them at all.

I eat gummies every day...except the days i go all brownie or coconut oil in a cup.

And the lethicin makes them work better for my liver...it has been through a lot. I used it for a punching bag for far too long. Another GREAT thing about lethicin is it helps your liver to work better. It is GOOD for you.

so if you think about it...have another gummy. Its good for you!

Im thinking i may be in the can't get high off edibles club, I've never had any of them do shit to me, so my plan was to make 30 gummies with 3 grams of ethanol extracted shatter, just haven't messed with any of this gummy madness yet, wasn't clear on Wich I ngredients would be best, I've got mct oil and the coconut oil, I thought they were the same lol but clearly different, one is clear liquid oil and the other is the white butter consistency were used to seeing, got blue cotton candy Jello and regular gelatin as well, figured the Amber shatter would green up the blue a bit, booger colored gummies is probably what I'll get 😂😂😂
