Do you need to cure your herb that is going into MCT oil, or Everclear Tintures?

I realize you need decarboxylation first.

I have no problem waiting for curing. But, if it is a wasted step I want to save time with my non-bud extras.

My guess, and it’s just a guess, is you could treat this like hash and go either way, cured or uncured and let us know how it goes in case someone else wants to try tinctures. I know that curing isn’t a factor for me when making infusions. I use anything from freshly dry trim to 1 year cured buds and everything was good so far.

Thanks Monkey. Your answer is just the way I normally think as well.

I'm using a dosing calculator found on a website with Emily in the name. It even compensates for the slight loss from decarb'g.

My plan is to use my STX420 (similar to Magic Butter Machine) on the tincture setting for 4 + 4 hours. The tincture setting is naturally 4 hours, but I've read you can push that to 8 hours. I'll double check that before loading it up with Jet Fuel (Everclear).

@exnavyinstl we have 2 sites for edibles that are run by Percy’s members if you need any information or help. One is run by Marge and it’s bitemepodcast.com, the other is run by Canna Educator and is Cannabisinformationinstitute.com . Both sites have tons of great content and you can tag the owners here in Percy’s if you have a question.

@monkeydo -- thanks. I will check them out. 

So far, I made an MCT oil that turned out great. That oil is going to be turned into watermelon gummies (my wife's favorite).

Yer man, I love gummies too but that watermelon flavor is a no go for me. Around my place our friends always hint to see if they are available for a fun snack

The last time that I decarb'd any weed I did in my Sous Vide at 203ºF for 90 minutes. Having it sealed up in a vacuum bag really kept the smell down.

@exnavyinstl that a genius way to decarb.

I've been wanting a sous vide in my life for a while, more reason to get one now.

When I make eddy's I take my bud or trim and turn it into hash, then press into rosin, then infusion in mct oil. 

Best way to dose your edibles in my opinion, you can be more accurate, much higher potantcy and keeps the weed/plant taste to a minimum.

I hate the taste of weed in most edibles like gummys, baked goods, candy .. Mostly sweet stuff, but love it in savoury things like curry's, salads and the like.

I agree with monkey on this one, curing isn't needed if your making tinctures 

♥️💛💚

Would be great if they listened but they don’t know how to properly make them or have easy access to enough cannabis. One or these friends always brings something though like BBQ or liquor to keep us happy. A fair trade for a few gummies.

I’ve used the bags to decarb but I found that they inflate a lot from the hot air and the terpene evaporation. This made it difficult to keep the temps up so I switched back to the mason jar to decarb. How do you deal with the bags inflating and keeping the temps high enough?

Monkeydo -- I seal up 2 butter knives in a connected, but separate pocket.
