[A couple of important notes about this method – the end product you get is a little bit “gunkier” than most pre-packaged vape liquids or e-cig juices. If you’re worried about “gunking up” your expensive concentrate vape pen, we recommend using the cheaper disposable atomizers (aka clearomizers). Also, The Potion Terpene Solution that we used is basically an extract of the active terpenes from various popular marijuana strains (Sour Diesel, Grapefruit Kush, Skywalker, etc). It is kind of hard to find, but there are other companies that sell a similar product made specifically for liquifying concentrates into “vape-able” e-liquids]. One thing we want to emphasize here is the importance of temperature in all of these various steps.
While the steps themselves may seem simple and straightforward enough, you really have to pay close attention to temperatures to make sure that you don’t char your THC oil, and/or burn off the important cannabinoids and terpenes that are present. If you do, you’ll be left with a nasty, useless cannabis concentrate oil that will not vape well at all and will not produce any effects. In the first method, you’ll remember that we “baked” our broken down buds in the oven at a temperature of 220℉ for about 25-30 mins. This should provide excellent decarboxylation of THCA into THC, as well as the decarboxylation of other cannabinoids without “damaging” them (or any other terpenes, flavonoids, etc that may be present). For the most efficient decarboxylation, weed should be exposed to temperatures of about 220-280℉ for between 30 minutes and an hour. If you exceed about 300℉, the chemical composition of both the cannabinoids (THC) and the terpenes begins to break down, at which point you’ll be left with a useless, nasty-tasting weed oil. As we mentioned, if it all possible we recommend you purchase a THC weed oil (one that’s been made specifically for vaping) from an established, reliable dispensary. This way, you know you’re going to get a high-quality and safe product, and you won’t run the risk of wasting any good weed or injuring/burning yourself along the way. Even the easiest-to-follow cannabis oil recipe is not exactly a cakewalk – especially if you’re doing it for your first time (which, if you’re reading this article, you probably are). That being said, we realize that there are only a few states in the U.S.
where THC juice is legal to buy recreationally, so we know there are a lot of people out there wanting to know how to make a potent, high-quality vape oil for their e-cigarette right from home, using regular marijuana bud and regular around-the-house ingredients. Hopefully this article helped you to do that in some way. And of course, no matter what kind of pure THC vape oil you end up with, there’s every chance that it will be safer and healthier for you when used in a vape oil pen or vape mod, than are those smoke shop e-liquids you get with the nicotine/THC pre-filled cartridges. Lastly, we want to reiterate the fact that if you choose to carry out any of the steps listed above, you are doing so at your own discretion. WayofLeaf is not responsible for any injuries, damages, etc. that may occur during any of the outlined processes. Moreover, as we’ve mentioned a few different times now, we do not recommend you try this. Rather, you will probably be much better off simply going to a weed dispensary where they sell THC vape oils , and buying a product there. (And only, of course, if you live in a state where this is legal). To be absolutely clear, we DO NOT recommend you make liquid THC in your home, unless you are a trained professional within a properly equipped environment, and we are not responsible for any damages or injuries caused. Human beings will never be satisfied – this is one of the (many) faults of our kind. Back in the 1960s and ’70s, people were smoking weed that probably had about 5-10% THC in it. Nowadays, this amount is considered next to nothing for an avid smoker. Over the generations, marijuana strains have been extensively bred to contain higher and higher THC amounts, with many of the most popular varieties that you buy in dispensaries boasting upwards of 30% THC. In recent years, more and more people have been ditching their dry cannabis flower and traditional joints and bowls for a much more potent, “hi-tech” marijuana experience. Of course, we are talking about consuming liquid THC for the ultimate marijuana high. Liquid THC is essentially ultra-concentrated marijuana that has been extracted from buds and processed into the form an oral tincture or vape juice that can be inhaled at low temperatures with a vape pen, vape mod box, or any other type of concentrate vaping device. Depending on the quality of the extraction and the various processes that were used during the infusion process, it is not uncommon for liquid THC to contain well over 90% of the psychoactive cannabinoid. In this article, we explain everything you could ever want to know about liquid THC for either vaping or oral consumption – how it’s made, where you can buy it, and how to use it without going into a frenzied, hallucinogenic fit of THC-induced paranoia . What Is Liquid THC… and Is It Different from a Cannabis Tincture? As we’ve mentioned, liquid THC is basically an ultra-concentrated form of marijuana that has an absurdly high THC content. While typical marijuana strains have a THC content anywhere between 12-35%, most “normal” varieties of liquid pot have upwards of 70% THC content – more than enough to get you higher than you’ve ever been in your life . The term “cannabis tincture” or “cannabis oil” is pretty broad in its scope, and thus there’s no real distinguished difference between liquid THC vs. In a general sense, you could say that all liquid THC is technically cannabis oil, but not all cannabis oil is liquid THC. In fact, a “cannabis oil” or cannabis tincture could include things like low-THC oils, sublingual medicinal oils, CBD oils, and so on.
The word “tincture” just refers to an oil-based liquid infused with natural botanical extracts.
If you’re wondering how to make liquid THC , it can be done in several different ways – some safer and more “appropriate” than others. In this next section, we will highlight a few of the most common ways to make liquid THC and pinpoint a few important things that you’ll definitely NOT want to do if you plan on trying to throw together your own concoction. Below, we have highlighted three of the most common ways to make liquid THC from dry marijuana plant matter. We DO NOT recommend you try any of these techniques, and we are not responsible if you decide to break any laws, and/or if your liquid pot-making adventure results in any kind of damage or injury to people or property. This should only be attempted by trained professionals.
