How to Decarb Cannabis Concentrates

Hello I’m Chef Sky from Infuzed Cookin.   Welcome to my Colorado kitchen.

Today we are going to talk about- How to Decarb Cannabis Concentrates

Here’s an easy way to decarb cannabis concentrates. In this video you will find out why you need to decarboxylate cannabis concentrates, what you will need from your kitchen, and how too successfully decarb cannabis concentrates.

Thank You. Let’s get Infuzed.

Why You Need to Decarboxylate Cannabis Concentrates

Decarboxylating cannabis concentrates is quite simple, but there are multiple approaches to take depending on the type of cannabis you have. This method will use an oven and small Mason jar with a lid to decarboxylate the concentrates.

Fact: Decarboxylation is necessary when using concentrates for edibles. Whether you are using flower or concentrates, you still must decarb it to turn the THCA into THC.

What You Will Need to Decarboxylate Cannabis Concentrate

Kitchen Items:

An oven-safe dish or baking sheet

An oven thermometer

 Parchment paper

Small Mason jar

Dab Stick

Ingredients:

1 gram -cannabis concentrate

How to Decarboxylate Cannabis Concentrates

1. To start the process, preheat your oven to 240°F.

2. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the cannabis Oil in the center of the baking sheet inside a glass mason jar.

3. Put the baking sheet in the oven and allow it to heat for around 40 minutes. Wait for the cannabis extract to melt completely.

4. When the Steady bubbling starts to slow it’s time to take the sheet out of the oven. Don’t allow the concentrate to cook for too long, cannabis concentrates that get too hot will degrade.

5. After the concentrate is removed from the oven and the bubbling slows, let the cannabis concentrate cool for a few minutes.

6. The concentrate is decarbed and ready for infusion.

This concentrate will be used to make infused chocolate bars with English toffee chips. Be sure to check out that video coming soon.

Thank you and Happy Infusing.

How to Make Concentrates at Home

 Hello I’m Chef Sky from Infuzed Cookin.   Welcome to my Colorado kitchen.

Today we are going to talk about- How to Make Concentrates at Home

The Source Turbo is safe and effective way to make concentrates.  In this video you will find out why concentrates are easy to make, what you will need to make potent concentrates, and how to successfully make concentrates at home.

Thank you and let’s get infused……….

 Why Concentrates are Easy to Make

The Source Turbo is easy to use. You mix cannabis and food grade alcohol into a cold wash tincture from the freezer. The tincture gets poured into the Source’s crucible, put on the cover and turn the Source on, which creates a vacuum. The alcohol is boiled at a lower temperature under a vacuum.  In about 2 to 4 hours your concentrate will be finished and the alcohol reclaimed for use.

Each wash can yield between 2 to 4 grams of concentrate from about 1 ounce of cannabis (depending on strain and quality).

Fact: The Source Turbo is so much fun and easy to use it will become a hobby and an obsession.

Chef’ Notes: What kind of concentrates does the Source Turbo make? The Source Turbo makes concentrates so they can be vaped, dabbed, smoked, or used for cooking. Depending how long of a purge, concentrates can be thick oil to a thin shatter.

What You Will Need to Make Potent Concentrates

Kitchen Items:

Source Turbo

Silicone matt

Small silicone spatula

Silicone or glass cups for storage

Dab Stick

Ingredients:

QWET Tincture filtered and ready to be placed in crucible

How to Make Concentrates at Home

1. Put the crucible in the Source and start the process.

2. Start the Source using the green button or with the mobile app.

3. There are two modes: normal and turbo

4. The app is for viewing temp, vacuum, time remaining and altitude settings. (App is optional and not required to operate the Source)

5. Turbo takes about 2-hours and Normal takes about 4-hours.

6. The Oil remains in the crucible

7. Ethanol is reclaimed for re-use.

8. The oil from the crucible is the foundation for any type of concentrate. Stop the evaporation process towards the end so you can pour the oil out of the crucible.

9. Pour the oil onto the silicone mat to purge or evaporate any remaining alcohol in the oil.

10. Use a dab stick to whip the oil occasionally to speed up the purging process.

11. The oil is ready to use.

12. Place the concentrate into glass or silicone cups for storage or decarboxylation.

Fact: The Source has altitude tuning. The feature creates an optimal vacuum and temperature balance for peak extraction performance at almost any altitude.

Chefs Notes about the Wash:

Pour enough frozen ethanol over the frozen cannabis until it’s covered.

The Ethanol begins to work between 3-20 minutes.  Called the “wash”. 

The 3-20 minute is the range to work with depending on the cannabis .If the wash is too short the yield will be limited, but if it’s too long your extract will contain unwanted plant matter.

 If using shake or trim a shorter wash must be used.  If using flower broken up by hand a 20 minute wash will provide a better yield.

Agitation can help break down the trichomes on flower in the wash, chopped up trim it will allow more green plant matter into the wash. 

Find a balance with agitation; quality flower can handle agitation better than shake and trim.

Thank you and Happy Extracting………………………..

Kitchen Items:

Source Turbo

Buchner Filtration system

Filter paper 110 MM (slow and fast)

Freezer

Mason Jars

420 Extractor (Food Grade Alcohol)

Stainless steel coffee filter

Ingredients:

14 Grams Cannabis Shake (First test of Source Turbo)

420 Extractor

How to do a Quick Wash (QWET) – Buchner Filtration

1. To do a QWET extraction for edibles, start with fresh decarboxylated cannabis. Gently break up flower by hand until pea sized. If using shake or trim, just use it as is.

2. Place the decarbed cannabis into a mason jar and put it into the freezer with the alcohol. (Overnight)

3. Once the correct temperature has been achieved, working quickly pour alcohol into the jar of cannabis until covered. Screw on the lid and gently swirl for a few seconds. Place both jars back into the freezer immediately. For the next 5 minutes, gently swirl the jar of cannabis once a minute, keeping in the freezer until complete.

4. After 5 minutes, remove the lid and pour the mixture through a quick draining stainless steel mesh strainer into another jar.

5. Cover the strained cannabis with more cold alcohol and place back into the freezer. The second wash will be for 10-minutes, straining the alcohol into a different jar you used to collect the first wash and place that jar back into the freezer.

6. Set up the Buchner filter and attach to the Source Turbo for a vacuum to operate the filter.

7. Place a filter paper in the Buchner ceramic top and prim the filter with alcohol.

8. Next Remove the first wash jar from the freezer and immediately pour the contents into the Buchner Ceramic Top with the primed filter. Pour the contents from the flask into a clean jar.

9. Replace the filter and prim the new filter, remove the second wash from the freezer and pour into the Buchner ceramic with the primed filter.

10. Compare the two washes and determine if you want to add the two washes together for extraction.

11. The Tincture is ready to be placed into the Crucible in the Source Turbo for evaporation.

Fact: The first wash can extract 75 to 80%, leaving the balance for the second wash. The second wash may be different from the first. If you look closely at the washed plant matter you can see when the trichome heads are gone and what’s left looks like wet fur.

Why it’s easy to make Mint MCT Tincture using CBN Distillate

CBN oil is harder to find than CBD oil. Because CBD is more well-known and well-studied, there are hundreds of companies that produce CBD. CBN is different than CBD.

The first difference is that we more about CBD. Research on the benefits of CBN is increasing but CBD has been studied far more than CBN.

After being exposed to air and heat for long periods of time, (THCA) turns into CBN. Anecdotal evidence suggests that aged cannabis tends to make people sleepy, some people associate CBN with a sedating effect.

Fact: CBN Distillate is pure CBN containing 80% cannabinoids. No THC

How to Make Potent Canna Butter with Concentrates

Hello I’m Chef Sky from Infuzed Cookin.   Welcome to my Colorado kitchen.

Today we are going to talk about- How to Make Potent Canna Butter with Concentrates

Infusions with butter and oils can be an easy as pushing a button and concentrates made from home are just as easy, very efficient, high quality and potent. In this video you will find out why potent concentrates can enhance the taste of edibles, the differences between extractions and infusions. How to make canna butter with concentrates.

Thank you and let’s get infused……….

Why Concentrates Can Enhance the Taste of edibles

Combining concentrates with infusion provides cleaner, better tasting edibles with more control over potency. Using concentrates for infusing oils use less unwanted plant material. Concentrates make a tasty, high quality edible that also use less fatty carrier oils.

By combining the Source Turbo home extraction technology with infusion technology like the LEVO 2. Concentrates take home infusions to another level.

Dosing Note: Cannabis concentrates have anywhere from 60-90% potency, which means each gram of concentrate has 600-900 milligrams of THC (or other cannabinoids like CBD, etc.)

Chefs Notes: If one gram of 80% potency concentrate has 800 milligrams of THC. One gram of cannabis flower (20% potency) has 20 mg of THC; 100% infusion would be 200mg of THC per gram of flower.        4.0 grams of flower are needed to equal one gram of concentrate.

What’s the Difference between Extraction and Infusion?

Infusion is soaking cannabis in carrier oil like butter or coconut oil to bind the botanical oil contained in the plant with the carrier oil.  Infusions use a lot of cannabis and carrier oil volume to complete the infusion with varying potency and taste.

Extraction is separating the potent oil from cannabis with cold food grade alcohol. The extraction is pure cannabis concentrate without any unwanted plant material. Extractions made at home are concentrated cannabis oils that are highly potent and taste great.

Fact: Concentrates are STICKY.

Chef’s Notes: Adding a small amount of butter or oil to the concentrate will help transfer the concentrate and prevent it from sticking to glass or silicone.

Kitchen Items:

LEVO 2

Glass Measuring Cup

Silicone Butter Molds (optional)

Ingredients:

1-1/2 cups Ghee

1 Gram Decarboxylated Concentrate

How to Make Canna Butter with Concentrates

1. Place the magnetic stirrer on the center mark inside the reservoir.

2. Add the concentrate to the Ghee.  (See notes on mixing sticky concentrates)

3. Add the Ghee to the reservoir. (Infuse up to 16 oz. of oil)

4. Set the Time for 60 minutes and temp to 175 degrees.

5. Press cycle button to select INFUSE.

6. Dispense the butter into the glass measuring cup.

7. Pour the hot infused butter into the butter molds.                                                                                               

(Butter molds are optional)

Fact: The LEVO II works great for infusing concentrates because of the magnetic stirrer inside the reservoir mixes the concentrate with the oils, time and temperature control and easy dispensing.

Chef’s Notes: You want an even amount of concentrate in each serving the oil must be evenly mixed throughout the infusion process.

Thank you and Happy Infusing………..

How to do a Quick Wash (QWET)-Buchner Filtration

 Hello I’m Chef Sky from Infuzed Cookin.   Welcome to my Colorado kitchen.

Today we are going to talk about- How to do a Quick Wash (QWET)-Buchner Filtration

This method is a great way to make a Quick Wash (QWET) tincture for concentrates. In this video you will find out why concentrates are so potent, what you will need to make a Quick Wash tincture, and how to do a Quick Wash (QWET) with Buchner Filtration.

Thank you and let’s get infused……….

Why concentrates are so potent

Quick Wash Ethanol or (QWET) quick wash extraction technique is used to extract potent trichomes. QWET is an ethanol extraction using frozen ethanol poured over frozen cannabis to create a tincture for extraction. By eliminating fats, lipids, waxes, and chlorophyll, the potency increases dramatically with no smell or taste from chlorophyll. Too much chlorophyll can cause digestive tract upsets, with cramps, and diarrhea.

 One advantage with this method is it’s already decarboxylated, with high potency, great aroma, and agreeable taste.  Since decarboxylation is required for cooking there is no reason to use quality flower to make QWET.

Fact: The swamp weed taste comes from the chlorophyll. QWET eliminates that taste completely, leaving edibles tasting completely normal by using a 5 Minute QWET.

Chef’s Notes: This process uses 2 washes separately to achieve two different washes. When making concentrates for edibles some combine the two washes into one.

What You Will Need to Make Quick Wash (QWET) Tincture

Buchner Filtration System

Using the Buchner filtration system will improve the extraction quality by making clear amber colored tincture for extraction.

By applying a vacuum from the Source to the Buchner the slow and fast filter papers remove the undesirable plant material like fats, lipids, waxes, and chlorophyll.

Additional items necessary: 110 mm paper filters (slow and fast)

Fact: Glass and ceramic must be handled carefully because these items are under a vacuum, always inspect for cracks or damage before using.

Kitchen Items:

Source Turbo

Buchner Filtration system

Filter paper 110 MM (slow and fast)

Freezer

Mason Jars

420 Extractor (Food Grade Alcohol)

Stainless steel coffee filter

Ingredients:

14 Grams Cannabis Shake (First test of Source Turbo)

420 Extractor

How to do a Quick Wash (QWET) – Buchner Filtration

1. To do a QWET extraction for edibles, start with fresh decarboxylated cannabis. Gently break up flower by hand until pea sized. If using shake or trim, just use it as is.

2. Place the decarbed cannabis into a mason jar and put it into the freezer with the alcohol. (Overnight)

3. Once the correct temperature has been achieved, working quickly pour alcohol into the jar of cannabis until covered. Screw on the lid and gently swirl for a few seconds. Place both jars back into the freezer immediately. For the next 5 minutes, gently swirl the jar of cannabis once a minute, keeping in the freezer until complete.

4. After 5 minutes, remove the lid and pour the mixture through a quick draining stainless steel mesh strainer into another jar.

5. Cover the strained cannabis with more cold alcohol and place back into the freezer. The second wash will be for 10-minutes, straining the alcohol into a different jar you used to collect the first wash and place that jar back into the freezer.

6. Set up the Buchner filter and attach to the Source Turbo for a vacuum to operate the filter.

7. Place a filter paper in the Buchner ceramic top and prim the filter with alcohol.

8. Next Remove the first wash jar from the freezer and immediately pour the contents into the Buchner Ceramic Top with the primed filter. Pour the contents from the flask into a clean jar.

9. Replace the filter and prim the new filter, remove the second wash from the freezer and pour into the Buchner ceramic with the primed filter.

10. Compare the two washes and determine if you want to add the two washes together for extraction.

11. The Tincture is ready to be placed into the Crucible in the Source Turbo for evaporation.

Fact: The first wash can extract 75 to 80%, leaving the balance for the second wash. The second wash may be different from the first. If you look closely at the washed plant matter you can see when the trichome heads are gone and what’s left looks like wet fur.

Chef’s Notes: If a light green tint of chlorophyll makes its way into the wash,by putting the jar of tincture in sunlight for two to three hours this will remove any remaining chlorophyll. Be aware the sun can also destroy cannabinoids in the tincture but at a slower rate than chlorophyll.

Stand by for the next video on filling the crucible in the Source Turbo with amber tincture to make potent oil for infusing.

How to make Bee Sting Honey-LEVO II

Hello I’m Chef Sky from Infuzed Cookin.   Welcome to my Colorado kitchen.

Today we are going to talk about- How to make Bee Sting Honey-LEVO II

The LEVO II is an easy way to infuse wild flower honey. In this video you will find out why the LEVO II works great for infusing honey with a carrier, what you will need from your kitchen, and how to successfully make Bee Sting Honey with the LEVO II.

Thank You. Let’s get Infuzed.

Why the LEVO II Works Great for Infusing Honey

Human use and infusing honey is traced back 8,000 years. In addition to an important role of natural honey in traditional medicine, Cannabis also has been used for thousands of years so the two make a great combination for infusion with the LEVO.

The LEVO makes it easy to do but there are a few things to note when infusing honey. The infusion temperature needs to be carefully controlled to avoid burning the honey and the nutrients contained in honey.

FacT: The best temperature for honey infusion is at a lower temperature no higher than 105°F. This will allow you to infuse the honey and still maintain the flavor, aroma, and color of wild flower honey.

Chef’s Notes: The LEVO II is perfect for controlling time and temperature to avoid burning the nutrients in honey.

What You Will Need to Infuse Honey With the LEVO II

Why Alcohol Tinctures Work Best for Canna Sugars:

There are a few things you need to do first before making canna sugar. Here’s what you need to do first:  First thing is to make the make the Ice Dragon Tincture using decarboxylated cannabis.

The process of making Ice Dragon Tincture is using alcohol as a solvent to extract THC and CBD from cannabis. The end result is concentrated cannabis extract.

Using the Ice Dragon method for alcohol extraction is a fast and effective way to extract cannabis, once the extract has been made simply pour the tincture directly over the sugar and stir.

Chef’s Notes: To complete the canna sugar the alcohol must be completely evaporated, leaving behind just the extracted cannabis oils that will bind to sugar crystals.

What You Will Need to Make Canna Sugar:

White Sugar

Cheese Cloth (to cover your sugar while evaporating)

Glass 9×13 inch baking dish

Silicone Spatula

Ingredients:

1 cup-White Sugar

½ Cup Cannabis Alcohol Tincture

Fact: The more surface area of sugar that is exposed to the air, the faster the alcohol will evaporate off. A glass 9×13 inch baking dish or larger, allows the sugar to be spread out evenly and will help in the evaporation process.

Chef’s Note: This recipe works when infusing white sugars, cane sugars and coconut sugars. See our Ice Dragon Tincture Recipe used to infuse canna sugars.

How to Make Canna Sugars (Using Ice Dragon Tincture)

1. Add the white sugar to the glass baking dish.

2.  Pour the cannabis tincture over the white sugar.

3. Use a rubber spatula to stir the sugar and tincture together, ensuring all of the sugar is coated. The mixture will resemble wet sand.

4.  Allow the mixture to dry for 48-72 hours, stirring frequently.

5. The sugar is ready when all of the alcohol has evaporated and the mixture has turned back to dry sugar.

6. Place the canna sugar in an air-tight container and store it in a cool, dry place.

Storage Notes:  The cannabis sugar should last at least 3 months, if not longer.

Fact: The more you stir the canna sugar, the faster the alcohol will evaporate.

Fact: Canna sugars color can be a light yellow to a dark green. Dark green canna sugar does not mean you have potent canna sugar. Color is only an indicator of how much chlorophyll made it into your Ice Dragon tincture when you made it.

Chef’s notes: Canna sugar is typically used as a condiment, where canna butter is used as a base ingredient. If you want to elevate your recipe you can use canna butter and canna sugar together for a double dose of CBD or THC.

Final Note: Use the THC/CBD calculator and enter your numbers. Keep tract of these numbers and label your final product so you are aware of how much you are taking per dose.

Going to put a little canna sugar in my tea and kick start my morning. Now that tastes good.

Thank you and happy Infusing.
