Stretching a quarter for the New Year

With 2014 only days old, and New Year's resolutions gnawing at the back of our minds, I have decided to help my best friend come up with a few new ways to save bud, money, and most importantly, hassle.

We live in a non-medical state, so access to concentrates, edibles, and otherwise affordable means of medication are more or less non-existent. My very good friend is a daily toker and despite having no real disorder, seems unable to make it a single day without marijuana. Problem is, she's already bled dry by her boyfriend and living situation.

In the interest of full disclosure, I must state that all of this information is second hand, and for the benefit of my friend. I, personally, do not partake because I actually am physically disabled, and prison would not be very kind to me...

Enter the plan:

1. buy a quarter of medical grade marijuana
2. qwiso 3.5 grams (one pass),
3. let both concentrate and waste dry for 24 hrs
4. use dried qwiso waste for 10 ml propylene glycol extraction over low heat
5. smoke .5 g while you wait.

You should end up with*:
-3 grams marijuana
-1-2 grams hash (depending on wash time and quality of bud)
-10 ml mild-moderate THC e-juice

*without getting into prices, I will simply state that this seems to be cost effective and more efficient than bud alone.

My friend told me that she'll be trying this tonight, and should have results by Saturday evening/Sunday morning. I'll be sure to post her findings in a timely manner.

The only question that my friend would like to ask concerns the hash extraction method. Do you prefer dry strained hash (frozen and crumbled) or qwiso? Which typically yields more in small batches?

Re: Stretching a quarter for the New Year

This seems all too complicated for the amount of a quarter. 3 grams of bud to me isn't really a lot, and unless the quality of the bud is really good, I can't imagine the yield of hash to be that big.

Get a nice vaporizer If you really want to save money and ration you're bud. Smoking at times is honestly a waste of fine cannabis. Vaporizing doesn't require as much bud, the high is quite strong (often describe as a heady high), and you can save you're leftover vaped bud to make edibles and tinctures, or just eat that shit as it is. Sure it may cost some money to buy a good vaporizer, but it's worth the investment, and one helluva good time.

thanks for the tip, good point

The quality of the bud is very good to excellent, typically imported from medicinal states. My friend has a vape-pen type e-cig, which is where the PG + bud mix will go after extraction.

My friend truly is obsessed with the act of smoking, so you may be right about my efforts being wasted. Personally, if it were me, I'd prefer to diversify my intake method depending on context.

Thanks for replying, will pass the info along and update accordingly.

Re: Stretching a quarter for the New Year

Personally, as a well expierenced stoner, I would reccomend your friend get a portable vaporizor. They cost 100$ or so for a decent one, but the investment will pay off. With some decent quality bud, 3-4 hits from a vape can have you flying for hours. And it conserves weed. 1/8th would last me a good 2 months smoking via vape (I only smoke once a week nowdays though).

Re: Stretching a quarter for the New Year

IRX120, please read before you comment, a vape-pen is exactly where the PG mix is going.

Well my friend didn't end up making any qwiso, but she did collect the kief from 9 grams of premium buds and infused it (with .5 gram bud) into 10 ml of a weak nicotine e-juice solution. This was done by hand over an open flame, never allowed to boil. Of 10 ml, a solid 6 were recovered, the rest was stuck in plant matter. The plant matter was consumed in capsules and produced a decent effect. I know the dangers of dealing with nicotine, as stated, this was a weak mix and I know my tolerance.

The resultant e-juice is tinted brownish-green, and tastes heavily of marijuana, according to my friend. She found that a few drops on a cigarette were getting her pretty high. A few puffs from the portable vporizer and she's good to go for a few hours. While this solution does smell, it is strong enough and very efficient. This experiment will be repeated on a larger scale when supplies allow.

Post Quality Evaluations:
Please don't use funky colors for emphasis, especially those that are so close to black. The particular color you chose for emphasis is actually quite hard on the eyes. Please use bold or italics when needed instead. No points taken.
