Default Cannacaps (When you don't smoke)

This is product that I get custom made for my medical ailments . BW2

Default Canna-Caps

Canna-Caps

Dr. Paul Hornby

Canna-caps are standardized, quality controlled, activated natural product cannabis capsules.
Standardization means that each cap contains the same dosage of a major active (11 the prep. In the case of canna-caps they are standardized to the dosage of 'IHC, which is by far the most abundant active in the capsules. So, each capsule contains the same amount of THC . Also km own, but not displayed on the label is the amount Of cannabidiol ( CBD ) and cannabinol ('CBN ) in each cap.
By quality control we clean that the raw material that goes into the caps is tested for heavy metals (lead, arsenic, mercury, chromium 6 and ), pesticides ( those commonly used in cannabis growing, such as avid ) and pathogenic bacteria salmonella E. coli, coliforms etc). Total of these tests, heavy metals and bacteria are Laplace in qualified laboratories outside of the Green Cross, whereas pesticide and stand ordination are performed in-house. The latter two tests are done using an instrument called High Pressure Liquid chromatography (HPLC ) that allows tile analyst to indetify and quantify principle compounds in a mixture In this way we can locate, identify and quantify pesticides that may be in the prep plus using a different HPLC method we can identify and quantify the or cannabinoids present in a bud sample or raw material that is going into capsules.
by activated natural product cannabis capsules we are refering to decarboxylation Of the various cannabinoids decarboloxylation simply cleans removal of carbon dioxide from the cannabinoid molecule we will use THC as the example. in nature THC exists as an acid, with 'what is called a carboxyl group stuck on the molecule with the carboxyl group on, THC is not psychoactive remove it THC binds the receptor and we have the psychoactive effects. including pain relief, anti-tremor activity and appetite stimulation Without decarboxylation, these effects do not Occur, The sauce, holds true for 'the other cannabinoids such as CBD and CBN, decarboxylation must occur to activate the molecule decaroxylation can be achieved through light energy chemical bases, or through heat.
Benefit of Cannacaps:
Canna-caps offer a health).' alternative to smoking cannabis. many persons using canna caps find that their smoking decreases significantly. A few caps a day provides a feeling of general well being, whereas persons in chronic pain find best relief administering every four to six hours. Canna-caps can be designed to suit individual needs, taking advantage of the strain specificity of cannabis and are often provided in an: pm formulation for day and nightime use, on calms-caps a person tends to eat good, sleep good and poop good, we maintain that oral cannabis is the medicine of the future and that as an herbal medicine standardized, natural product cannabis will be a leader.

Tried cannabrex Yet ? http://www.cannabrex.com
Alternatively Use Gelatin Caps And Use Grapeseed Oil ( Not Rapeseed Oil)

Default Cannabrex VS Cannacaps

Hi JKP
I have not tried the cannabrex. It is available from several of the compassion clubs the I deal with.
I had no need, as the cannacaps that I was getting were a custom prep for my medical needs. (With the exception of a lack of Sativa preps.)

Although to be fair with cannabrex you can probably come up with a special blend that you can mix into the caps.

The advantage is to both as it is much easier on our health. The key to making our personal oral caps is proper decarboxylation of the cannabis prep!

Myself I primarily use the Digital Volcano for 2 bags per bowel @ 205' C then I keep the leftover until I have about 8 ounces which is used to make Canna Butter. Waste not.

Good to meet you JKP
Take Care

Default Digital Volcano Cost & Tests

I paid $850.00 Canadian that works out to about 640 Euros I believe.

Their worth every penny!!! Or what ever the name of your lowest coin currency. Ha Ha!

When I have a specially flavor full strain I will turn the dial down to 175'C just to enjoy the taste of the turpines .

They did a bit of testing with the Volcano at the Green Cross Society in B.C. Canada with Dr. Hornby here is a paste of the results.

Maybe I will Sign off now Enjoy the read
BW2

___________________________________________
Well we ran some preliminary experiments on Friday with the Volcano. I will report these
findings with a caution that they are merely pilot experiments, to find our way only.
Figure i put my foot in it by promising results, not thinking about the consequences that
the findings may bring. And now we're realizing that we may be opening up a whole new can of worms.

Firstly, we have known for some time that the Volcano does not deliver all of the THC, particularly at
the lower settings, of around 5 and 6. We know this since we use high-pressure liquid chromatography
(HPLC) to measure the amounts of the most abundant cannabinoids, that are present in the sample,
before and after vaporization. By measuring the THC, for example, left behind in the sample carcass,
we can determine the efficiency of the vaporizer setting, since we also know what we started
out with.

Since this is a study of heating cannabis we must consider a couple of things.
One is that THC, plus the other cannabinoids, are not active as they sit in nature.
For them to interact with the THC receptor, firstly they must be de-carboxylated or activated.
Meaning CO2, must be kicked off the parent molecules, that in the un de-carboxylated
form are acids, chemically speaking. De-carboxylation, in this case, is accomplished by heating,
which, in turn, excites the chemical bonds of the, for example, THC molecule causing it to release
carbon dioxide at the weakest bond. This, subsequently, activates the molecule, allowing receptor interaction.

If more heat is applied to the molecule, eventually it will reach its boiling point and enter the vapor state.
De-carboxylation occurs before evaporation and over a broader range of temperatures.
And is critical for understanding cannabinoid pharmacology. Therefore in vaporization we have a two-fold
process occurring that allows the medicine to be delivered. De-carboxylation, followed by evaporation.

When we run cannabinoids by HPLC we see the acids of CBD, CBN and THC, plus trace amounts
of these already de-carboxylated cannabinoids (alcohols as they're called, chemically). We normally total the acids with the alcohols to come up with total THC, CBD or CBN for the sample.

In the experiments discussed here we vaporized a cannabis sample that had already been shown
to contain an unusually high amount of THC, with relatively high CBD.
We ran three separate experiments at Volcano settings 6, 7.5 and 9. At each test, the same
weight of cannabis was placed in the volcano and two bags vapped for the same time period.
Following vaporization, the carcass (sample left behind), for each temperature setting was analyzed
for the three most abundant cannabinoids.

We will attempt to tabulate below our experimental results.


Volcano Setting THC remaining mg/g CBN remaining mg/g CBD remaining mg/g

6 260 0.05 0.6

7.5 245 0.05 0.6

9.0 75 0.05 0.15

With all HPLC analysis there is an error window associated with the quantification. This window is normally acceptable if it has a coefficient of variation of 15% or less. This is simply a statistical evaluation of the standard deviation or variation around the mean, divided by the mean and a percent value taken.
So with THC there is often an error window of plus or minus 2% around the measurement and for CBD and CBN
this is more like plus or minus 0.05%. To convert the above results to a percent value, simply divide by 10.

So, what do we learn from these results. Nothing about decarboxylation, since it's not presented here,
although much is gained from observing the chromatography (not shown), where a one to one decrease
of the cannabinoid acid and increase in the alcohol is seen. Nevertheless, in the table we are showing only
the de-carboxylated actives that are left behind.

As stated earlier, the cannabis sample used in this experiment tested particularly high in THC,
running at 260, + or - 40 mg/gram. As shown in the table, this did not change for setting 6 on the Volcano
and changed only slightly for setting 7.5. We only see a significant decrease in THC at setting 9.
These results also confirm earlier observations.

The boiling points of the three cannabinoids measured are as follows:

THC 200 C
CBD 190 C
CBN 185 C

We can see from our before and after sample, that CBN is virtually all gone at setting 6, leaving
only residual amounts. The THC, however, all remains at this setting. As does the CBD.
At setting 7.5 the THC is fully de-carboxylated, but still present to roughly 95% of its original value.
Interestingly, at this setting the CBD is only half de-carboxylated.

At setting 9, all three are fully de-carboxylated and have moved to the vapor state.
A small amount of CBD remains as does some THC.

We can conclude from these very preliminary experiments that with the Volcano at setting
6 all the CBN is gone along with the more volatile terpenes and aromatics. Yet at this
setting, although the THC and CBD are being activated they have still not received enough heat
to enter the vapor state. In addition, at setting 7.5, similar conditions hold, with the THC still
not evaporated. It's only at setting 9 that THC receives sufficient energy to become volatile.

That's it for today. And remember these results are preliminary.
We will continue to conduct more experiments on the Volcano, next
time focusing more on what happens to the CBD and at what setting.

Lightbulb Worth Adding To The Vaouriser Thread

Excellent Article
We Have A Vapouriser Thread In The Patients Forum That Would Benefit From The Article You Provided
Very Good Reading ( Very" Livraria Lello" )
