Is their a way to make vape juice
High PlantManBee, that's cool to know... can you please share simply how and what is the process to derive and isolate these long chain and short chain terps?Yes.
If you mean to put in cartridges there are several ways. IMO, the best way is using only weed derived terpenes to thin an extract. Long chain terpenes (sesquiterpenes) to thin it, and short chain terps for flavors. Others use propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine. yuck.
Sourcing or making clean concentrates is an important part of this IMO. Also, there is currently some evidence that one of the major "thinning terpene" suppliers has been using mineral oil instead of sesquiterpenes. You can dig through that mess over at ICM.
Thanks for the information.Hi All
Distillate or vape juice as you guys are calling it should not be mixed with MCT oil , but some use various solvents and there is no real studies on long term with this ...so be careful. We make our Nordle juice with a 100% of the plant as we found a terpene( Nexus) we harvest for thinning the very pure crystal form of distillate we make in our lab.
The process to make clean distillate is as follows in our camp....
1.biomass made into powder form
2.ethanol bath to get CRUDE OIL 1st extract...usually at 65% CBD , 2-3%THC
3. decarboxylate Crude oil to convert all acid form cannabinoids into active forms.
4. winterize( dewax delipid filter).....usually at 80% CBD , 3% THC
5.Distillate ....usually 90% CBD, 3% THC
6. Remediate THC......88% CBD, 0% THC
7. Use Nexus to mix CBD and terpenes down to under 45% to avoid crystallization in cartridges.
So each process is needing machinery and then we are subjected to microbiology controls prior to going on the public market...so if the companies you are buying your material from can write down these steps and processes in this order...and answer what is inside their material then it is always a better company to go with. Be careful to use material only sold by traders of vape material.!
hope that helps Shantibaba
