  I made some FECO Oil and this is what I did, this was my first time making it. This is the hard way, no machine.

  I started with Everclear, pure grain alcohol and some weed. I filled two baking sheets with bud that I had broken up. I baked in the oven at 230-240f/110-115c for 40 minutes. After cooling I filled two 1qt mason jars with as much bud as I could get in there. I didn't smash it in the jar but it was full and lightly pressed. Filled the jars with the alcohol and I put lids on them and into the dark cupboard. I'd shake them once or twice a day, they sat for 5 days, this concoction is called Green Dragon, don't ask me why. idk

  1- 1.75L bottle, the big one, of Everclear filled two jars exactly with a couple oz left over. The bud swelled when it got wet, fyi.

  The "Green Dragon" can sit for as long as you want, the "Golden Dragon" is a quicker method. But mine sat longer because after mixing it, I did a test run with my hot plate and found it wouldn't get hot enough to even boil water. It's a 900 watt and I needed a 1500 watt so, Hello... Amazon.  Got the new one and it boils water all day long.

  Being this was my first time boiling full jars of alcohol, I was making sure I had all my bases covered and once everything was all together I started boiling. I heated the first jar for about 20 minutes before I realized I hadn't remove the plant matter yet. WTF!! lol oh well, it just means I've freed up, melted and dissolved all the trichomes since they were bubbling away nicely. So I drained, strained and then I did the same thing to the second jars seeing as I will be mixing them together and I want one product, consistence. Screw it all up the same.

  It cooked and cooked and cooked, total time was about 5 hours. It cooked and I added the other jar and it evaporated pretty quickly at first but then slowed down towards the end. I changed pot size and reduced jar size. Different pots boiled better than others, very strange. The first big pot had a thick bottom and the water didn't hardly boil but the alcohol sure did, then I switched to a thin bottomed pot and the water boiled like crazy but the FECO didn't, so live and learn and try different pots. Alcohol boils before water.

  So this is it, it finally stopped cooking and wouldn't reduce down any more. It's beyond thick, I don't see how they say to put this in a syringe, it would be stuck and it wouldn't come out. This is the STICKEST shit I've ever seen, example, I scrapped up about a 1/2 gram on the end of a knife and after 20min of trying to get it off the knife, I throw the knife away, fk it!! lol

  Now I'll look into some recipes to see what I can do with this super sticky stuff, but for now I have to go wash the cooking dishes in denatured alcohol cause everything is Sticky!! lol       peace

@woodi2 great job on the oil! I make oil for my mom and another friend and that stuff sticks to everything…… To help make it easier to handle I usually get to the point where the alcohol is boiling off then get a scale and wax paper sheets out. Once the oil is done I pour the desired weight (1gram of oil per 2 cups of chocolate chips for me) onto the wax paper and freeze it. When I’m ready to use it I melt chocolate chips slightly and then put the frozen oil in the chocolate chips and mix well. Then I put the mix into chocolate bar molds and vacuum seal.

I personally have not found a good way to get the oil out of a syringe besides putting it under hot water.

good luck!

@woodi2 haha yeah you kinda have to find five hours to waste. My mom freezes her cannabis jello and the taste/texture appeals to me! Let us know how the jello taste.

@woodi2 Awesome man!  I let mine boil down from 32 oz to about 8oz and decided I was just gonna use it as tincture in my coffee instead of going all the way to oil. 

Maybe add a bit of alcohol back in to make it easier to work with?  Or some mct oil maybe. Next round I'm gonna go all the way!  You have encouraged me sir 😤💨

Way to go, @woodi2! Looks to me like you have the Midas touch!  I cannot wait until the day that I have enough bud to give this a try.

Well done Woodi nice job man 😎  is that the same kind of stuff that people make using magic butter machines. All the different forms of weed still confuse me, mind you thats not hard to do at the best of times 😆  I would still like to get one of those machines sometime seeing as I dont have access to any cooking things.

The rubber hose on my vape has a lot of oiley stuff gathering in it, its half blocked in the middle, do you know if it will be the same sort of stuff as what you made here or will it just be some weak leftover stuff.

Excellent work again bud, your kickin arse every new thing you try here 🙂
