Hope everyone is having a great week. I have been busy writing my regular column for Freedom Leaf Magazine. As Canada just legalized recreational marijuana (YAY), the next issue will feature all things Canadian, so I’ll be cooking up some signature Canadian recipes, with Mary Jane of course!
Finally, making quality cannabis concentrates is now in the realm of the ordinary home consumer. The Source by Extractcraft, provides a relatively easy to use machine that turns cannabis trim and flowers into small, personal use amounts of pure cannabis concentrate.
What can you do with the concentrates you make? Vape them, dab them, smoke them, use them for cooking or to make topicals. Depending on how and how long you process, you can make concentrates of various textures and viscosities from thick oil to thin shatter.
So how easy is the Source to use? Pretty darn easy. You mix cannabis and food grade alcohol into a tincture then place in the freezer to get ultra cold. The tincture gets poured into the Source’s crucible, the lid gets placed on, and once the machine is turned on, it creates a vacuum. This boils the alcohol at a lower temperature than usual. In about 2 hours your concentrate will be finished and the alcohol reclaimed for use in another batch. Expect each batch to yield between 2 to 4 grams of concentrate from about 1 ounce of cannabis (depending on strain and quality).
This is a lot of trouble and expense to go through to make a soup, but it is OOOOH so good and plenty rich enough to serve as a main course. I wrote the recipe to serve two, but you can double it.
Get the Lobster Bisque recipe.
I use marijuana butter to medicate this recipe. My Making Marijuana Butter tutorial will help you make it.
See You Next Week!
