I smoked cigs for 20 years and finally kicked that habit about 20 years ago. My lungs just cant handle the smoke.
About 5 years ago I started using pot regularly for pain (arthritis, bad back, bad knees, etc) and difficulty sleeping. I tried vaping with a cheap vape and I tried a home make water bong, but didnt like those options.
Ive tried making oil from dispensary bought buds, and using that to make brownies, but after a few months of that, the taste makes me gag. They do work well though.
This last round I tried making some tincture using glycerin. That is somewhat better tasting when put in strong tea or coffee, but the batch I made is not as potent as my brownies and I still dont like the taste - at all.
Im several weeks from harvesting my first grow (Northern Lights and CBD Critical from Nirvana) and about out of the glycerin tincture. Im going to need to buy some more bud and try something different pretty soon.
Im thinking of making some Green Dragon tincture this time - mostly because it looks easy and fast. The plan is to use the highest proof vodka I can find. I dont have a good source for EverClear.
I want to get your guys thoughts on what works for a non-smoker who is a finicky whimp about strong gunky flavors and harsh smoke
I want to make something that isnt wasteful of the weed too - in other words, I want to get the max number of doses from a given amount of buds.
Any tips very much appreciated!.
Oh - not interested in trying anything toooo dangerous or that uses toxic ingredients.
